Dear MendMeShop,

I am a retired Orthopedic Surgical Registered Nurse First Asst and I just want to say this Shoulder Inferno Wrap is wonderful. I have had adhesive capsulitis in my left shoulder several times. I am 67yo now and I have Arthritis, Lupus and fibromyalgia and I had bilat knee replacements in 2001. It has always taken about 6months to get back use of my arm and to get relief from pain. I read your information and was expecting it to take at least 6weeks to see an improvement. I have used it this short time since receiving it and I am almost painfree. Occasionally I start to feel a little ache and I put it back on before it becomes pain I have full range of motion when I could not brush my hair or fasten my bra. Again, I am so pleased and hope it helps others too. Jane P.S. I would like to encourage others to try the products and see if they get the same remarkable results as I did. I continue to improve with full ROM remaining and only occasional episodes of pain; As soon as I feel any pain, I use it 2-3 days in a row and the pain is gone. This is probably Arthritis as it feels different.

Causes of Toe Deformities

Your foot print might be the key to your pain.

Although there are some specific causes for each of the toe deformities (hammer toe, mallet toe, claw toe), the majority of causes are similar with all of them.

If you suffer from flat feet, your flexor muscles are generally stronger than the other muscles; which creates a muscle imbalance. These muscles exert more tension on your foot which pulls the normal arch in your foot down - creating a flatter arch and longer foot. As a result your weaker toe muscles are overpowered, which can result in a toe deformity.

Are your shoes hurting you?

Inappropriate footwear (short, tight, narrow, pointed, or high heels) that puts pressure on your feet and keeps your toes in an unnatural bent and/or squished position where they rub against the shoes can also cause a toe deformity. If you wear this type of shoe over a long period of time your toe muscles won't be able to straighten your toe even if you are not wearing shoes. Often hard growths of dead skin such as corns (on top of toe) or calluses (on bottom of toe or sole of foot), or bunions (bump on side of big toe joint, normally an enlargement of bone or tissue) will develop from these pressure points, and initiate your toe deformity.

Other causes of toe deformities are:

Success Stories
  • Different foot structures, conditions from birth or an abnormal toe bone length
  • Hereditary characteristics
  • Muscle, nerve and joint damage from osteoarthritis, stroke, neuromuscular diseases (multiple sclerosis, Charcot-Marie Tooth disease, cerebral palsy, degenerative disc disease), inflammatory diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis) or diabetes, poor blood flow to your feet (peripheral arterial disease)
  • Previous toe injuries or poor foot mechanics and movement
  • Partial or complete dislocation of one of your toe joints
  • Excessive pressure on your foot due to height, weight, and activity levels

Dear MendMeShop,

MendMe products are the Cadillac of at-home treatment options. They are robustly constructed to provide superior heat or cold contact to the injured area and the fit is incredibly precise and adaptable. My husband and I use them repeatedly as typical ageing athletes with lots of old injuries. I have loaned them to friends on my paddle tennis team and everyone raves. Yes, they cost a bit more but save untold thousands in visits to chiropractors, physical therapists and doctors. We are among the sites biggest fans.
