Dear MendMeShop,

The Shoulder Inferno wrap is working well for my shoulder bursitis. I went to my primary care doctor this week, and she was very interested in the treatments and the success - when little else was working in the last 5 months. My shoulder pain has gone away completely, and so I am obviously very pleased with the results.

Causes of Illiopsoas Bursitis and Tendonitis

Some sports can cause bursitis - twisting of the hip with out moving your feet.

Considered overuse injuries that results from you overloading your hips with repetitive hip flexion and external rotation movements, which strain your iliopsoas muscle and end in inflammation. Iliopsoas bursitis involves your tendon rubbing against a broad, shallow groove over which your iliacus and psoas major pass (the pubic iliopectineal eminence); this friction irritates your bursa. People who participate in activities such as golf, hockey, cheerleading, ballet dancing, rowing, gymnastics, and resistance training (sit-ups) often get iliopsoas tendonitis and bursitis. Even simple actions like putting on your socks or shoes and quick walking can aggravate the situation. This condition is more common in women than men, especially those who have loose ligaments.

Iliopsoas syndrome is caused from an abrupt contraction of your iliopsoas muscle, which results in a tear or rupture of your muscle (normally a partial tear where your muscle and tendon connect). Loads of up to eight times your body weight have been demonstrated in your hip joint during vigorous athletic competition, and movements such as standing and twisting at the waist without moving your feet, or externally rotating your leg outward while its in normal extension are responsible for iliopsoas injuries. Hurdlers, high jumpers, baseball, soccer players, or athletes who are at risk of getting tackled are prone to this type of injury. Others who participate in activities that involve uphill running and/or jumping, lots of kicking, weight training and heavy lifting (lots of bending and squatting) are also at risk.

Growth spurts can alter tendons and muscles, and lead to illiopsos-bursitis.

Iliopsoas tendinitis and/or bursitis are common during growth spurts when you are younger because your biomechanics are altered, your tendons and muscles are tight, your pelvis begins to tilt and the rest of your lower body goes out of alignment. This can affect your lower back, hip joints, knees and your gait; which result in major lower body joint issues.

Rheumatoid Arthritis or Gout can cause Illiopsis Bursitis. Some people with diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, gout or scleroderma may contract bursitis from crystalline deposits in the joints. Although not much is known about how this process happens, it is common knowledge that Uric acid is a normal byproduct of daily metabolism. If your are diagnosed with gout then you are unable to break down this uric acid properly, leading to crystalization of this excess acid which deposits in joints÷a painful symptom that can often lead to bursitis.

Success Stories

Other factors that will influence your tendency to experience iliopsoas tendinitis and/or bursitis are age and degenerating tissues which often causes a decrease in your tendon flexibility, leg length discrepancies which may result in a skewed gait (abnormalities in the way you walk), changes in equipment or training terrain (mountain bike to road bike, road running to trail running) or changes in the intensity of your activity (increase running time or weight lifting poundage without proper preparation) can result in overexertion, which end in iliopsoas injuries.

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.
