Dear MendMeShop,

I'm a believer in your products. My wife had plantar fasciitis a few years ago. I did some research and came across your website. What impressed me the most and encouraged me to purchase was the response I read from your founder to a naysayer whom had never even tried your wraps. This guy was bashing your products when all others were praising them. Your owner invited him to Canada with airfare included to tour the headquarters! Anyway, I figured it was the real deal and so did he after that! My wife's brother is a chiropractor she literally healed her foot with the use of your inferno wrap and another treatment in a couple of weeks! I personally have Golfers elbow in both arms. I've been using the Inferno wrap for about 5 days so far. I haven't used the Freezie wrap yet as I really haven't much pain and no swelling. I definitely feel that it's working already. I'm confident that within a couple of weeks or more I'll be good as new! Thanks again for being part of such a wonderful company that stands behind its product! Sincerely, Jim Rossi

Treatment of Illiopsoas Bursitis and Tendonitis

Treatment usually is based on conservative treatments. Often these conditions can last for months or years depending on how long you have had the symptoms (especially if you don't take time to heal your body when they first happen).

Scar tissue

The most important factor in healing an iliopsoas injury is getting rest. During your recovery you will probably have to modify or avoid the activities that stress your iliopsoas muscles and create muscle spasms, until your pain and inflammation settle. Scar tissue can often develop with iliopsoas tendinitis and/or bursitis. As your damaged groin tissues heal this dead, fibrotic tissue will be produced instead of forming brand new healthy tissue. This tissue adheres to your muscle fibers, tendons, ligaments, fascia, nerves, and joints causing pain and preventing them from moving properly (this limits your range of motion, flexibility and strength). However, the more diligent you are with your treatment and rehabilitation, the faster you will see successful results.

Surgery is rarely used with iliopsoas tendonitis or bursitis or iliopsoas syndrome.

Return to your normal activities is okay, once you are pain-free and you demonstrate adequate flexibility and strength of your hip flexors and opposing muscle groups (abdominals, gluteus muscles, back muscles, hip adductors). Pain-free participation in activities should be demonstrated before you start up your normal routines.

Experiment with new types of exercise that will help stay in shape.

A good rule of thumb is not increase your activity by more than 10% per week until you are back to reasonable exercise levels (this is especially with older populations, who may need to stop or severely modify their running/jumping activities). It is often helpful to investigate new activities like cycling or swimming that will complement your previous activities and not aggravate your iliopsoas.

Conservative Treatments for Iliopsoas Tendonitis or Bursitis

The R.I.C.E. Treatment Philosophy

This treatment philosophy is used to decrease inflammation and relieve pain for a chronic or acute iliopsoas tendinitis or bursitis within the first 48 hours of a flare-up.

  • Rest and limit your activity. Use crutches or walking supports to help alleviate pressure if required and prevent strain from a limp.
  • Hot/Cold Fleece wrap
  • Ice your groin and abdominal area 2-3 times/day for approximately 15 - 20 minutes at a time to help reduce blood flow and fluid build up. Gel packs are a better option than frozen peas if possible, as they mold to your body shape and are reusable (do not apply ice/gel packs directly on your skin, instead wrap cold compress in a wrap or cloth). Utilizing 2 gel packs with a wrap will allow you to cover your entire groin, pelvic and thigh area at one time.
  • Compress the area if possible by adding light pressure to minimize swelling (make sure the compress is snug, but not too tight as it could cause numbness, tingling or more pain). Neoprene groin strain braces that wrap around your groin, hip flexor and adductor muscles are very useful.
  • Elevate your leg above chest level to relieve the pressure from swelling and allow fluid to drain from your injured area. Gentle massage around the groin and pelvis area will also help to prevent stiffness.

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound is a great therapeutic option to decrease inflammation, pain and soft tissue (muscle, tendon, ligament, nerve and connective tissue) damage experienced with inner thigh (adductor) and hip flexor pain that may be associated with iliopsoas tendonitis and/or bursitis. Treatment can be placed on the inner thigh using a portable, home ultrasound device (self-administered) or by seeing a physiotherapist. Ultrasound therapy is easy, painless, safe, and generally requires between 5 - 10 minutes, 3 times a day. It is based on a form of deep tissue therapy, which is generated through high frequency sound waves (that we can not hear). These waves send vibrations deep into your body and raise the temperature of your soft tissue. The waves are delivered through a hand held transducer and medicinal conductive gel that are used together in a slow, circular motion on your skin over the injured area. You may experience a slight tingling or warm sensation during the process partly due to phonophoresis - a secondary enhancing, therapeutic effect of ultrasound. Do not use ultrasound over the abdomen, pelvis or genital areas and please seek the approval of your physician before using ultrasound!

Ultrasound therapy increases collagen and tissue elasticity, which in turn promotes blood flow (circulation) and brings oxygen and nutrients to your injured area. This cleans your tissue by getting rid of cell waste products and helps your injury to heal. If not treated properly injured tissue can heal with a weakened state, which can lead to scar tissue or calcification. If used on an ongoing basis, ultrasound will help to increase your range of motion by breaking down any scar tissue that may form in your upper thigh muscles and hip flexors. Ultrasound waves penetrate deep into your tissues, repair and relax your muscles and other tissues, decrease chronic inflammation and pain, and accelerate your recovery rate, so you can return to your daily activities as soon as possible.

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.

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'm grateful for the Inferno products. After a month or so, I began to feel so much better with my shoulder, leg, and my back. It's a magnificent healing product. I recommend it to everyone I know. If it weren't for your product, I would have had to have surgery and who is to say that would have worked - or made it worse. Appreciate all your help.
