Dear MendMeShop,

The Knee Inferno Wrap is single-handily the best investment I have ever made for my knees, ever! Allow me to explain why, starting with a little knee history. In 1989 I tore my right ACL playing intramural basketball at a local community college. The college picked a cheap doctor & treated me as if I only had a torn meniscus. As a student, I did not have insurance of my own & I thought it was normal for my knee to keep popping out of socket after having surgery. About five years later, I’m now living in Houston Texas, I broke my knee again, really bad, couldn’t walk, severe damage. Had insurance this time and really great doctor (little did I know he was the Houston Oilers Team doctor) and he finds that my ACL had been torn all these years & I would be lucky to save it but probably have to have a cadaver ACL, sorry but that was out of the question, it freaked me out thinking about it. Doctor saved my knee, made it really tight & rehab was really difficult. Since 1994 I have not been able to bend my knee & put the back of my heal to my hip, always had about a 3-4 inch gap. After the first two days using the Inferno Wrap I was touching my heal to my butt, WOW! I have also had my left meniscus operated on & had the same issue, but not as bad, now I can completely sit down on my left knee with no pain, the right is still coming along but at least I can still sit down on top my feet. I’m 48 years old, I am extremely active for my age, I’m a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instructor & competitive fighter. I starting competing this summer & won my first tournament in June, not long after I got the Knee Inferno. I was able to take it with me, use it before my match & able to fight like never before. I took up long-boarding as well as a means of cardio training since I hate to run for the oblivious reasons, and it has been a great joy to do that. The Knee Inferno is a part of me now for the rest of my life, I use it every night (sometimes I forget) and the difference in the morning is incredible. I tell everyone in my gym that have knee problems, & as you can imaging we have knee issues in an MMA gym. Please let me know what I can do to do that. Thank you.

Preventing Iliopsoas Tendonitis and Bursitis

It is always better to prevent iliopsoas tendonitis and/or bursitis rather than try to fix it after it happens, however that is not always the situation. In any case, there are a number of things you can do to keep yourself healthy and prevent further damage.

Yoga for daily stretching routine

To stabilize your groin and pelvis area and increase your range of motion, maintain and build your core strength, stability and flexibility to keep your body strong and prevent further injuries. This involves balancing your front body muscles (abdominal, pelvic, groin, quadriceps, and hip) and your back body muscles (hamstrings, lower back, gluteal and hip muscles). Procioceptive training (core balance training) and plyometrics (exercises to develop strength, speed and agility, such as jumping or bounding movements) are also an excellent addition to your exercise routine. Yoga, tai chi, or a daily stretching routine will help to keep your muscles and joints supple (avoid sudden twisting and turning motions).

A regular exercise and/or cross-training program that focuses on total body fitness and includes low-impact aerobic activity at least 3 days per week, such as walking, inline skating, swimming or cycling, will help to keep you healthy overall and will strengthen your body to prevent against further iliopsoas injuries.

Weight loss and/or weight maintenance, which involves eating a balanced diet full of protein, complex carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and antioxidants. This will help support a healthy system and will help you to maintain your weight. If you gain just 10 pounds, your joints must bear from 25 up to 100 pounds extra, which can add unnecessary stress to your body. Limiting your caffeine, alcohol and nicotine consumption will also improve your health.

Choose appropriate equipment and supports for your body type and size:

  • Groin, Pelvis, Upper Thigh, and Hip Supports to be used as required during activities (bracing/strapping/taping the area for extra support).
  • Thermal Pants or Compression Shorts help to keep your muscles warm during activities.
  • Cushioned Shoes or Orthotics that fit your feet and are suitable for your sport (shock absorbing insoles, stabilizing heels, or strong shank for twisting).
  • Mobility Aids (rails, canes or walkers) to help alleviate symptoms and improve functions.

Avoid doing too much to soon to give your body an opportunity to build up its endurance, and to protect your soft tissue from injury and overuse. This is especially important when participating in a new activity. Gradually increase your participation to prevent overstraining your muscles and joints. Always warm up and cool down your muscles (especially your pelvis and groin muscles) before and after working them, and learn the proper form and techniques for your activity.

Success Stories

If you are suffering from groin pain, listen to your body and decrease, modify and/or avoid any activities or motions that cause pain and irritation (twisting, turning, kicking, lifting, running or walking on uneven terrain or uphill). Try to walk on softer surfaces such as cinder or grass, rather than pavement or muddy surfaces if going long distances, shorten your stride and decrease your speed. If you are required to perform these motions at work or play and cannot avoid them, make sure you take frequent breaks and rest to prevent fatigue and pain. It is important not to rush your recovery to prevent further damage.

Ultrasound Therapy can be performed at home with a portable ultrasound device. If you have symptoms or are recovering from iliopsoas tendonitis or bursitis, using ultrasound on a regular basis before your activity on your upper thigh and hip flexor muscles will help relax the tissues and prepare your muscles for action, reduce scar tissue, and help diminish pain and inflammation after your activity. Do not use ultrasound over genital areas and speak with your physician before using therapeutic ultrasound!

If you suffer from mild inflammation or pain after certain activities or movements use ultrasound therapy when you complete the activity, then rest, apply a cold compression wrap, and elevate your leg/hip. You can also use analgesic or anti-inflammatory medication for pain relief if required.

If you have been given an iliopsoas 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.

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.


How An Inferno Wrap™ Works

Inferno Wrap and how it works.

Inferno Wraps™ have been specifically designed for the treatment of deep, soft tissue injury. Inferno Wraps contain a patented Energy Web™ which is flexible and shaped to conform to your body. This Energy Web™ emits a uniform wave of perfectly safe electro-magnetic energy over its entire surface. This energy travels deep inside your body and stimulates the blood flow needed to heal your injury.

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.

Dear MendMeShop,

I had Plantar Fasciitis for 6 months and had been to a podiatrist and orthopedic surgeon. All the calf stretching, night socks, and even the expensive orthopedic inserts in my shoes had not helped at all. The customer service team at the Mend Me Shop have given me far more specifics as to how I should stretch and what is going on with my foot than either doctor did. They also did not push all their products, but just the one that they felt would help my situation the most. I just finished the first three weeks of treatment and I feel about 90% healed. There is no pain when I first get up in the morning, nor when I wear my shoes with orthodics. I could not recommend Mend Me Shop or their products more highly.
