Dear MendMeShop,

I have been using the Leg/Arm Inferno Wrap for almost a week now and cannot believe how much the tendonitis in my arm has improved. It's a great product.

Ankle Sprains: Introduction

Ankle Anatomy

The common ankle sprain, not to be confused with a ligament strain, is the result of a partial tear or rupture of any one ligament of the ankle joint. Ligaments are responsible for connecting bones as well as providing the range of motion for bones at a joint. The ankle joint which is formed by your lower leg bones, the tibia and the fibula, create a socket at your ankle where the talus bone sits. Located on both sides of the ankle joint are the ligaments that bind the structure together and allow the joint to move freely. However, when ligaments are under tension their performance is limited and an excess of stress can cause a sprain.

People most commonly suffer ankle sprains when the foot becomes unstable and "rolls over" landing inward on the ground. This type of sprain is called an Inversion ankle sprain and it is the most common form while an Eversion ankle sprain, a rolling out of the ankle, occurs less frequently. While the symptoms of an ankle sprain vary in degree depending on the severity of the sprain one can typically expect sharp and localized pain, inflammation, redness and an inability to put weight on the ankle, again depending on the severity of the sprain. Judging the degree of your injury is the job of a doctor but typically ankle sprains are determined to be a Grade 1, 2 or 3; where a Grade 1 sprain involves stretching the ligament, Grade 2, a partial tear and Grade 3 which involves a complete tear of the ligament. While there are other forms of the injury, such as a High ankle sprain, most injuries fortunately heal easily with conservative treatments including cold/warm wraps and ultrasound technology.

Dear MendMeShop,

A couple of years ago I helped my husband cut firewood on a hillside. I began to experience pain in my Achilles tendon shortly after we had finished getting all of the firewood cut, split and stacked. I limped through the winter and in the spring began to worry that I wouldn't be able to take care of my gardens. I finally went to the doctor and was prescribed physical therapy. The PT did help with the pain but didn't really "cure" the problem. I continued home physical therapy for another year and began to research therapies to help the tendon. I wanted to avoid surgery if possible. I came across the MendMeShop website and read about the products recommended for Achilles tendon. The cost seemed minimal compared to what I had already spent at the doctor and physical therapist. I ordered the Inferno Wrap and the Freezie Wrap for the ankle and used them according to the directions. I felt great pain relief and the flexibility in my Achilles returned within a few weeks of treatments. I have also been using a night splint following my last Inferno Wrap night treatment before retiring. With that regimen, I have been able to avoid a surgical tendon correction and have been able to resume my normal busy activities. Thank you MendMeShop for your great products and customer service follow-up of the shipment of products.
