Dear MendMeShop,

I purchased the Back/Hip Inferno Wrap in a last-ditch effort to help a partially torn gluteus medius tendon in my left hip. Here’s the story: I have suffered from fibromyalgia for 14 years. I know pain and I usually know how to deal with it. However, for the entire year of 2013, I had horrible left hip pain. I was told it was probably bursitis and had several injections into the hip joint and bursa. Finally, in September 2013 I had an MRI which showed a partially torn gluteus medius tendon. My pain management physician said to me, “There’s absolutely nothing I can do for you, go see an orthopedic surgeon.” The orthopedic surgeon told me, “It’s not bad enough for surgery. There’s absolutely nothing I can do for you, use a cane and rest for six months to a year.” I was devastated that there seemed to be no help and my fibromyalgia pain medications could not even touch the hip pain. So, I used a cane and did my best to rest, but I have my own catering business and four teenagers/young adults in my home. “Rest” is really not in my genetic makeup. By April of 2014, the pain was still present and intense. I would have a couple of weeks of not needing a cane, but if I sat down wrong, I’d be in pain again and need the cane. I was extremely discouraged and quite frankly, fed up. One of my daughters was graduating in May and we had planned a graduation trip to Disneyland at the beginning of June. It would be two of my daughters, their friend, and their friend’s mom. Desperate to try anything new, I found the information for your company online. Even though it was a hit to my budget, I felt inspired to try your product. I used it regularly leading up to our trip and even took it on our trip to use each evening. Now, in the past several years, we have taken our children to Disneyland and after the first day in the park, I’ve needed a wheelchair to endure the rest of the trip. Forget about enjoying it. However, this time I was so wicked happy to wake up on our second day feeling good and not even needing my cane!!!! I made it through THREE days of Disneyland and a total of 12 hours driving a car with much less pain and stiffness. I can totally attribute it to the Inferno wrap and quite honestly, God. I am grateful for the Inferno wrap and still use it daily. Thank you!

Common Causes and Symptoms

Ankle Sprains can happen to anyone.

Ankle sprains are one of the most common injuries sustained by athletes, because of the repetitive force on the ankle joint. But you don't have to be an athlete to suffer an ankle injury. The ligaments surrounding the ankle support a full range of motion provided they are not put in an awkward position. The causes of an ankle sprain are simple, unfortunately we can't always predict the stability of our footing. While an ankle can be injured by an awkward landing there are some factors that make us more susceptible to an ankle sprain. Before considering these factors let us first remember that we are discussing the feet and anything that compromises our footing puts us at risk of injury. These other influences include stepping on uneven surfaces, obesity, not thoroughly warming up supportive muscle groups, incorrect footwear and previous ankle injuries that could have weakened the ankle.

Success Stories

Following an ankle sprain you will experience one or all of these symptoms in varying degrees depending on the severity of the injury. Upon spraining your ankle you will feel acute and localized pain and it will be difficult to stand with any weight on the injured ankle. Depending on the severity of the sprain there will be mild to heavy swelling of the ankle as blood surrounds the injured tissue and this will continue over the next 24 hours as more fluid leaks into the area. Because of this leaky fluid and blood the tissues may also feel warm and may turn ecchymotic (bruised). Furthermore, the area will be very sensitive to touch and may throb. If the pain continues to be severe over the next week despite RICE treatments you should contact your doctor immediately to ensure you have not suffered a more serious injury such as a fracture.

Associated Concerns

Severe or repeated mild sprains may lead to an irritation and thickening of the injured ligaments that could cause some complication at the ankle joint.

Ankle instability

For those who have sprained an ankle it is often the case that the injury occurs again. Recurring ankle sprains may point to a condition called "ankle instability". This is a chronic condition and usually develops because a previous ankle sprain has not fully healed leaving the ligaments stretched and prone to reinjury. Chronic ankle instability is often accompanied by repeated rolling over of the lateral side (outer) of the ankle and continual pain and swelling.

Dear MendMeShop,

I can tell you since using the products that I am not totally as of yet without heel pain yet I can say I am not having the excruciating pain I was experiencing for several months prior to ordering the products. My favorite is the inferno wrap and I use it daily to reduce the pain in my heel. I logged in today and created an account with mendmeshop and wrote a review of the inferno wrap and the WOW service I experienced in talking with you Friday.
