Dear MendMeShop,

My husband, who is in his 50's was feeling pain in his Achilles on one foot. He kept walking on it till it became inflamed and impossible to walk on. My husband sought out help from our Chiropractor, the treatments were very expensive and he could only get one a day. He couldn't walk on it at all. Just moving any part of his body caused him great pain. Going to see anyone would prove unworkable. I couldn't get him in the car as he could not even move his leg. I researched Achilles tendon injury on line. I found an article about the Inferno Wrap. The cost would be far less than trips to the Doctor. It was only a matter of days before he was able to get out of bed once we started the treatments as recommended. It was a week and he was off the crutches. He was able to get back to work after three weeks. He still uses the inferno boot when his Achilles feels sore. I am very grateful for your products and highly recommend them.

Groin Pulls

Overstretching in sports can cause groin injuries

Up to 30% of sports medicine doctor visits are attributed to muscle strains, and groin injuries comprise 2 - 5 % of all sports injuries. A groin pull, also known as a groin strain, involves an injury to your groin, pelvic and hip muscles that help keep your legs together and flex your thigh. They are a result of excessive tension, effort or use, especially during activities that require running, kicking, twisting, or side-stepping. The damage can range from overstretching to partial tearing to complete rupturing of the small fibers that make up your groin and pelvis muscles. An adductor strain is one of the most common causes of groin pain in athletes. Most injuries occur at the junction between your muscle and your tendon; however they can occur in your muscle belly as well. A study performed by Renstrom and Peterson who analyzed groin strains in athletes, found that the adductor longus was responsible for 62% of groin injuries, and tends to be the most prone to injury (at the point where the muscle and tendon attach to the femur), followed by an injured gracilis muscle, rectus femoris, rectus abdominis, sartorius, and the iliopsoas.

Internationally, approximately 10% of all injuries endured by professional hockey players are groin strains (according to the Nicholas Institute of Sports Medicine and Athletic Trauma).

Dear MendMeShop,

I purchased the Knee Inferno Wrap to compliment my MCL recovery program. I believe the Knee Inferno Wrap product greatly aided in the healing process and accelerated my ability to regain functionality in the knee joint by utilizing it regularly during the early days of my recovery. Your product did meet my personal expectations and i would recommend it to anyone seeking a solution to aid in the healing of soft tissue injuries.
