Dear MendMeShop,

I am elated with the Shoulder Inferno and Freezie Wraps. I purchased. My shoulder is regaining strength, albeit slowly. Until I found your products I was in tremendous throbbing pain from a rotator cuff injury. For three months I used Chiropractors and exercise bands to no avail. The terrible throbbing has subsided and I am once again able to throw the ball with my two German Pointers! If I over do activity, the freeze wrap helps to calm the shoulder down. An hour after that I do the Inferno Wrap.

Treatment

MendMeShop Cold Compression Wrist Wrap

When treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, rest the area as much as possible, apply ice for 10-20 minutes at a time for at least 3 times a day. Do this to the injured area for the first day to 3 days. If you have a cold / hot pack for the wrist, you will quickly find that frequent hot/cold treatments for the wrist are much less troublesome, and you can do this while getting on with your day. Note that the importance of the hot / cold treatment is very high, though when surveyed, most CTS sufferers never take advantage of this easy treatment step. Moist heat may be used after acute swelling of the wrist has improved and rest prevents further progression of the injury. Ice will reduce initial inflammation and swelling and the moist heat circulates blood through the area to speed the healing process. This can be further helped by the use of ultrasound applications over the affected area, as it reduces swelling quickly and increases blood flow to the area.

The long term use of therapeutic ultrasound is common with this injury, as the application of ultrasound will:

  • Counteract atrophy in muscles and tendons.
  • Increase the elasticity of all tendons that pass through the carpal tunnel.
  • Soften inelastic scar tissue from injured tendons / muscle fiber to the point where it is eventually re-absorbed by the body.
  • Decrease inflammation of tendons, and the flexor retinaculum (a fibrous sheath passing through the carpal tunnel). All tendons in the carpal tunnel are sheathed, and once tendons become inflamed, the sheath swells and can also become inflamed, and at the worst, infected. If you suspect you have any type of infection in the area, please consult a physician immediately as this can be very damaging if left untreated. (Never use ultrasound over anything suspected of being infected.)

A Final Word About Therapeutic Ultrasound

It is important to know that therapeutic ultrasound will alleviate CTS symptoms, but to truly treat CTS properly and prevent reoccurrence, an extended treatment term is required - 2 months is not unusual. Treatment length will vary depending on the severity, and there are some cases of CTS that are just too chronic, in which case there are very few treatment options other than invasive surgery. If this is the case for your CTS condition, please make sure you are fully informed about the risks and rewards of CTS corrective surgery.


Never use Ultrasound over an area injected with a steroid (ie. cortisone) for at least 30 days.

Never use Ultrasound after surgery until your physician recommends and approves of it.

Dear MendMeShop,

Hello, I'm reporting into you that the shoulder wrap is working so good. Most of my pain is gone now. I have good movement of the arm. Can raise it up over head now and around to the back. Before I started the treatments I was not able to do these things. I am a believer of your product and I will continue to use it. I went to my Doctor today for my yearly physical and I told her about me ordering this wrap, as I did not want to go through another surgery on the rotator-cuff. I just got done doing my overhead pulley exercises on my arms and then I put on the wrap and it felt so good. I still am being very careful as to not over use the arm. I was able to run my vacuum today with the right arm and did great. Ok, just thought you would like to hear my progress and I am very happy with the results so far
