Dear MendMeShop,

I had a diagnosis of a torn ligament in my right foot in July of 2010. After 10 weeks of twice weekly physical therapy, I had limited improvement. I started using your Ankle Achilles Inferno Wrap. You make a quality product and its continued use has restored my normal mobility. Your 1-800 telephone staff has provided outstanding support and service. Thank you for this wonderful healing technology. I will never be without my Inferno Wrap.

Illiopsoas Bursitis and Tendonitis Anatomy

Hip and pelvis injuries comprise 2-5% of all sports injuries, of these, musculotendinous injuries are the most common. Most injuries occur at the top of your femur (around the lesser trochanter and tendon of the iliopsoas). The 2 most common iliopsoas injuries are iliopsoas tendinitis and iliopsoas bursitis. Iliopsoas injuries are not very common and poorly recognized cause of hip and groin pain. Females tend to be more prone to iliopsoas injuries than men.

iliopsoas bursa in the hip.

Your hip flexors are among the most powerful muscles and tendons in your body. They are comprised of your iliopsoas (deep set muscles at the front of your hip), your tensor fasciae latae (outer hip muscle), and your rectus femoris and sartorius (they lie over top of the iliopsoas muscles in your front, upper thigh area). Hip flexors help you lift your upper leg to your torso or flex your torso towards your thigh (like when sitting up from a lying down position), they externally rotate your spine and thigh bone, and also limit your hip extension when walking or running.

Although it is often regarded as a single muscle, the iliopsoas is comprised of 2 muscles: the psoas major and the iliacus (psoas minor - weak flexor muscle) which lie deep beneath your skin surface. The psoas muscle lies at the front of your hip. It starts in your lower back, attaches to the base of your sacrum (triangular bone that forms the bottom of your spine and the back part of your pelvis) on the inner surface of your ilium (the upper and widest part of the pelvis/hip bone) and ends on the top of your femur (thigh bone). The iliacus starts from your hip bone/ilium, and attaches across to the inner surface of your lower spine and sacrum. It also ends at the top of your femur. Both of these muscles come together via the same tendon (thick, fibrous tissue that connects muscle to bone) and attach to the bump on the inside of the shaft of your femur (the lesser trochanter) - this is where most injuries occur.

The Iliopsoas Bursa is the largest bursa in the body. It lies between your psoas muscle-tendon, your pubic bone and the top, inner side of your femur. It helps reduce rubbing and friction of the bones and soft tissues that meet at your hip joint capsule.

Women are more likely to have iliopsoas injuries.

Illiopsoas Tendonitis and Illiopsoas Bursitis

Iliopsoas Tendonitis involves inflammation and irritation of your iliopsoas tendon and the area surrounding your tendon. Is a result of chronic micro-trauma to the iliopsoas tendon from overuse and repetitive activities which are common in sporting activities.

Iliopsoas Bursitis affects the bursa underneath the tendon of your iliopsoas muscle, which becomes inflamed and irritated when your iliopsoas muscle is used.

Iliopsoas tendinitis and iliopsoas bursitis are similar and often occur at the same time as inflammation of the tendon often causes inflammation of the bursa and vice versa. Both of these conditions demonstrate similar symptoms, and are less common that other groin strains.

Success Stories

Iliopsoas Syndrome refers to a stretch, tear or complete rupture of your iliopsoas muscle and tendon where the tendon attaches to your thigh bone, frequently experienced along with iliopsoas bursitis. It is rare for your iliopsoas muscle-tendon to rupture completely.

BFST™ - Using Your Body's Natural Healing System
Inferno Wrap providing superior blood flow stimulation.

Your body can heal itself! In fact, your body starts healing itself the moment you are injured and it's the blood in your body that makes it all happen. Your blood is the transport mechanism for everything that is good inside you. It carries oxygen, nutrients, water and antibodies. Proper blood flow is essential to healing. Unfortunately, when you injure your body you stop moving and the swelling sets in. That means your vital blood flow can be reduced to a trickle! If you want to heal quickly, you need to keep your blood moving and that's where Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™, or BFST™, comes in.

Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™ promotes the flow of blood through the injured area without the need to exercise your already damaged tissue. You can really feel it work. Within moments of applying an Inferno Wrap™ you can feel the healing sensation and the increase in blood flow. During a treatment, and for quite some time after you finish, your injured area will experience increased blood flow even though your body is at rest. It's a soothing sensation and extremely effective. With BFST™ your injury is constantly being fed with healing, nutritious, oxygen and energy filled blood. This is exactly what your body needs to heal.

xyliss ultrasound

Ultrasound therapy is also a helpful tool for pain prevention of bursa injuires, and having a portable ultrasound device at home can be a powerful and convenient treatment tool. If you have symptoms or are recovering from a bursa related injury, using ultrasound on a regular basis before your activity or throughout the day will help relax your muscles, tendons and tissues, diminish pain and inflammation, soften scar tissue and contribute greatly to the healing of your injury.

If you suffer from mild inflammation or pain after certain activities or movements use ultrasound therapy when you complete the activity and then rest and elevate your area of injury. Limit the application of ultrasound to a couple of treatments per day (the manual will recommend treatment frequency depending upon the injury). In between ultrasound treatments, maximize your pain relief and injury recovery by using an Inferno™ Personal Therapy System. Proven Performance, Proven Relief - only found at MendMeShop.com. If you have been given a treatment plan by your health professional, make sure you adhere to it to ensure pain free living. In general, people who are committed to their therapies and exercises will have the best medical outcomes.
