Dear MendMeShop,

I love the products and I can definitely tell they are making a big difference in my healing. I just wish I had known of your products even sooner. I was in a serious motorcycle accident back in July and broke 17 bones, had a collapsed lung, and had numerous twists and sprains along with a lot of swelling. I was in the intensive care unit for 7 days and then in the hospital for 7 more before I was able to go home. To make a long story short, since using your products my pain level has gone down immensely and the swelling is finally under control. I even take the Inferno wrist and back wrap to work and use it since I have a desk job that makes it possible. I am down to just walking with a cane now and will probably be able to get rid of that in about two weeks. I did twenty minutes on the stationary bike yesterday and walked for 1/2 mile on our treadmill. Within another couple months I hope to be back to jogging several miles every other day. The 4 Inferno Wraps and 2 Cold Cure products along with lots of prayers on my behalf have helped make the difference. Thanks again so much, and God Bless you guys for your products! Steve Brown P.S. Also, here is a little more about my status now. I just ran the Peachtree Road Race (a 10K event – 6.2 miles) in 9:07 per mile. That was back on July 4. I just ran a 5K (3.1 miles) in 8:22 per mile this last weekend. I truly believe the wraps helped me get that level of fitness back. Many people my age (55) don't even ever get in that kind of shape, let alone a year after a major accident with all the complications that I had. I still use the Freezie Wraps after running when I can and I still regularly use the Inferno Wraps before many of my runs and exercise to warm things up.

Treating Groin Pulls

Early diagnosis and proper treatment are important to prevent groin pulls from becoming chronic and potentially life-limiting; it doesn't take much to change a grade 1 pull into a grade 2 pull. Injuries to the muscle belly are best managed with adherence to the conservative treatment methods, which includes modifying and/or eliminating the activities that cause tenderness or discomfort in your groin area, and performing gentle strengthening and stretching once initial inflammation has gone down.

scar tissue forming

Scar tissue can often develop with groin pulls or strains, where your soft tissue has pulled away from the bone. 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). Injuries to the groin muscle-tendon attachments often requires more conservative management until you are pain free.

Patience is required with groin pulls, as they can take time to return to your normal state. Return to your activities too early can lead to chronic pain, which becomes much more difficult to treat. If your symptoms last for more than 6 weeks after trying conservative treatments, you will often be examined for other groin injuries such as tendinitis, stress fractures, osteitis pubis and/or groin disruptions.

Success Stories

Grade 1 groin pulls tend to take between 2-4 weeks, Grade 2 groin pulls between 1-2 months and Grade 3 groin pulls approximately 3 months. However, it is really dependent on whether you have an acute pull (4-8 weeks) or a chronic pull (can take up to 6 months), how long you've had the symptoms, and your commitment to proper rehabilitation. A good reference point for healing is once you've regained approximately 70% of your pre-injury strength, have full range of motion and are pain free, you can return to your normal activities.
