Dear MendMeShop,

It's refreshing to hear your sincere concern for the health benefit of your products to your customers. I'm a repeat customer. I purchased my first elbow inferno wrap about five years ago. I use it all the time, since I play tennis about 4 to 5 times a week. I consider the money well spent for five years of playing lots of tennis. I also have a knee inferno wrap, which I use less often because once my knees healed they hurt only occasionally. Because the pad in the knee wrap is bigger, I can also use it on pain in my lower back, which I sometimes get from pulled muscles. For years I've been recommending your products to tennis playing friends who complain about painful joints, and I'm always surprised how few actually want to invest the money into healing themselves. They'd rather use neoprene sleeves, braces or compression devices, which don't work very well and have no healing effect. I guess they just think it's normal to suffer and stop playing at regular intervals. Thanks for great products.

Bursitis of the Wrist

Where are bursae in the hand or wrist?

As you already know, the wrist is constantly in motion throughout the day. Simple everyday activities such as getting dressed, tying shoes, opening a door and preparing dinner would be very difficult to do without having an ability to move the wrist. A wrist is made up a a collection of eight small bones and many tendons, ligaments and a couple bursae.

The bursae of the hand are found at the distinct synovial sheaths and the main two bursae are the Ulnar and Radial bursa. The Ulnar bursa covers the tendons of the index, middle and ring fingers. The Radial bursa covers the thumb tendon and extends to the wrist crease. Infection in the radial bursa and ulna bursa is known as a "horseshoe abscess".

The extensive use the wrist puts it at a considerable risk for injury; athletes are at an even higher risk - 9% of all athletic injuries involve the wrist. Sports that involve throwing, weight-bearing, twisting and impact.

    Symptoms include
  1. pain in the wrist especially after the wrist is bent back and weight is puton it
  2. A small lump or swelling in the top of the wrist

Causes of wrist injury (and more specifically bursitis of the wrist) can be from sports such as baseball, badminton, and tennis. Repetitive activity (Repetitive Stress Injury) is also a major cause of wrist bursitis.


The U.R.I.C.E. Treatment Philosophy

This treatment philosophy is used to decrease inflammation and relieve pain for bursitis of the wrist.

  • Ultrasound around your injury for 5 minutes, 3 times per day. This is best accomplished with a personal, therapeutic ultrasound device.
  • Rest and limit your activity.
  • Cold Compression Wrist Wrap
  • Ice your wrist 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).
  • 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).
  • Elevate your hand above chest level to relieve the pressure from swelling and allow fluid to drain from your injured area. Gentle massage around the area will also help to prevent stiffness.

Wrist Bursitis Surgery

Surgical intervention consists of aspirating the bursa via draining the fluid with a needle. The key is to try and lay off using the wrist with the inflamed bursa, and apply URICE to prevent the need for invasive surgery.

Wrist Bursitis Prevention

Modify your activities that cause bursitis or reduce the pressure and stress on your joints. Wear a sling or brace to support the injured area.

Rest periods, ensure you take breaks when working out or doing repetitive tasks.

Stretch and strengthen! Improve the strength and flexibility of the muscles, ligaments and tendons around the injured area.

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.
