Dear MendMeShop,

I just wanted to let you know how happy I have been with my wrist wrap. I broke my leg, the tibia and fibula January 10, 2013. I had a lot of soft tissue damage to my foot since I fell off a pier and landed on gravel with my foot. My tendons are so tight and at night they wake me up a lot, had a metatarsal lump on the bottom of my foot which gave me issues. I was going to order the foot pad but the lady advised me to get the wrist wrap since the top of my foot was involved and she said I could probably wrap it around different places and she was so right. I am much better. I have been using it about a month now and I can tell you that I am much better. The energy from the wrap helps my tendons to stretch out and although I am not 100%, I have gone from 50% to 75% in this one month. I only wish I had found you earlier in my ordeal and I would probably be 100% by now. I would recommend your product to anyone who is having tendon issues after an injury. Thank you so much

Symptoms of a Pulled Quadricep

Symptoms are really dependent on the severity of your injury, however the most common ones are noted below.

A sharp pain or pulling may be experienced at the trigger point or site of the strain or tear, which can radiate along the length of your quadriceps up to your hip and pelvis, and/or down through your knees.

You will feel tightness, tenderness and/or muscle spasms in your quadricep muscle after and acute injury or during active and resistive movements. Point tenderness may also be present, especially when touched. If you have a chronic injury, you may feel more of a dull ache that lasts for long periods of time.

Pain experienced in the quadriceps muscles is unique in each muscle:

Rectus
femoris pain
Quadricep pain patterns

Pain is felt in the middle and above your kneecap, although the trigger point for this pain is experienced in front of your hip, therefore pain can radiate up your thigh; this pain is aggravated when walking down hills or stairs.


Vastus
medialis pain
Quadricep pain patterns

Pain is felt on the inner side of knee and kneecap and can radiate up the mid-inner thigh; this muscle is often responsible for a buckling knee and for pain experienced during growing pains.


Vastus
intermedius pain
Quadricep pain patterns

Pain starts mid-thigh and radiates to your upper thigh or the front of your hip area, especially when walking up hills or stairs; it can cause difficulty straightening your leg after sitting for long periods.


Vastus
lateralis pain
Quadricep pain patterns

Pain starts on the outside of your knee and can radiate as high as your hip or as far down as your calf; it often feels like your kneecap isn't working quite right, as it can pull your kneecap and lock your knee. It is the main cause of growing pains in kids legs and is painful in adults.


You may experience stiffness or decreased range of motion (ROM), such as difficulty fully flexing your knee, or stretching your thigh. Tightness in your rectus femoris muscle can pull your pelvis forward creating a sway back and causing hyperextension in your knee. This is very common in gymnasts, ballerinas and soccer players.

Swelling in your quadriceps muscles is a result of your tissues becoming inflamed; this normally occurs just above or below a more severe quadriceps strain or tear. Warmth and redness may accompany swelling in severe cases. You may also feel a gap, dent, bulge or thickening in your muscle or tendon that is not normally present.

Weakness or complete loss of function of your quadriceps muscle can also be experienced as a result of a quadriceps strain. This along with your other symptoms may make it difficult for you to walk or run and can result in you walking with a limp.

Occasional bruising

Occasionally, bruising (broken blood vessels) and discoloration (black, blue and/or purple) over your quadriceps muscle may appear immediately or after a few days with severe quadriceps strains. Calcification of the muscle of tendon can also occur.

Grinding and crackling (crepitus) in your knee can result from improper tracking of your kneecap.

A popping or snapping sensation on the front of your thigh can often be heard and felt when your quadriceps muscles are tearing. This doesn't happen very often.

Dear MendMeShop,

Things are going well with my healing sessions. I had it three times daily with each session lasting 20 minutes maximum for two weeks. I noticed reduction of pain in my third day using the Inferno Wrap. In my Second week I reduced the sessions to just one (20 Minute) per day. The pain is almost gone except when I make a wrong and abrupt move on or of my right (problematic) shoulder. Hopefully, I do not have to use the Freeze Wrap this summer when I do most of my heavy yard work, but I am assured that there is this cold treatment if in case I hurt my shoulder again. I now have decided not to have an MRI on my shoulder and undergo more expensive treatments or therapy from my specialist ortho doctor . I think his diagnosis of "Frozen shoulder" or possible rotator cup tear are correct. I will be watching my progress and if condition gets worse, I will call him again for appointment. But for the mean time, I am satisfied with my Inferno Wrap treatment on myself. I am glad to have save time and money at least for now. Thanks again for your wonderful products and support. Warm Regards to your Team. P.S. In a follow up email Jesse sent us later in the year, Jesse indicated the Inferno wrap did wonders... it's been almost nine months ago since I purchased your products. I am happy to let you know as today that my frozen shoulder is no longer an issue. I believed in less than a month of continuous therapy sessions per your instructions on the product my pain is gone.
