Dear MendMeShop,

I am more than grateful to have come across the Inferno as I know it is helping in my healing process. I broke my patella in half and healing from surgery (range of motion/pain) has been extremely slow. Sitting, which is required to work was almost impossible and daily more tolerable. The range of motion has increased and I should be able to start driving again the end of the month. I know the Inferno was part of this change in healing, along with my diligent exercises/care. I have a ways to go and confident the Inferno will continue be major contributor.

Progression of a Groin Pull

This can be classified into 3 grades of groin pull or strain severity:

Groin injuries can occur in any sport.

Minor - Grade 1 Groin Pulls involve stretching of your groin muscles which results in slightly pulled muscles or very small tears in your muscles. You will generally feel mild cramping which will be a little tender or uncomfortable, but will involve no swelling or no loss of strength.

Moderate - Grade 2 Groin Pulls are more painful and involve a partial tearing of the groin fibers in your muscle, tendon, or at the tendon attachment to your bone. You will generally experience some pain, along with swelling, decreased range of motion and strength, as well as difficulty walking or running. Your groin muscles will often be painful when you touch them.

How to Order

Severe - Grade 3 Groin Pulls involve a complete tear (rupture) of your groin muscle fibers generally at your muscle/tendon and bone attachment; it is very painful and less frequent than the others. You will tend to experience a burning or stabbing pain, a lot of swelling and minimal strength, which may prevent you from walking without assistance or make it impossible for you to run. Bruising in the injured area is common a few days after the accident. This type of pull or strain may require a surgical repair.

Should you seek medical attention?

Seek medical attention to have a correct diagnoises.

This is up to your discretion; however any continued discomfort in your groin or pelvis area should be investigated. If you continue to experience the groin pull symptoms and have tried the suggested conservative treatments, it is recommended that you seek professional medical attention. If you experience any of the symptoms noted below it is recommended that you seek immediate attention:

  • Severe pain and tenderness
  • Problems or swelling in or around the genitalia (penis, scrotum, testicles).
  • A cut, lump or bulge or bleeding in your groin area.
  • Major hip/thigh movement problems causing a severe limp and/or "popping noises"
  • Urinary problem.
  • A groin rash.
  • Postoperative problems after a groin operation.
  • Exposure to an STD.
  • Groin pain has not improved after 1 week, where symptoms are more severe or frequent.
  • Signs of shock (lightheadedness, restlessness, shallow breathing, sweating, weakness, nausea) or a severe fever.

Dear MendMeShop,

I wanted to take a minute and write to thank you so much for your extreme kindness and accommodation to help me replace my lost Inferno adapter. Your products literally do heal and can help prevent surgery. I am doing well with my Knee Freezie Wrap and my Knee Inferno Wrap. A heating pad doesn't come close to how the Inferno Wrap works. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Cheryl Dyer
