Dear MendMeShop,

I’ve been recommending your Knee Inferno Wrap! I’m getting better! I really didn’t notice much difference until about a month of using this twice a day. But now I’m really feeling so much better. Last weekend I walked 3 miles. I couldn’t walk 3 blocks a few months ago without pain and swelling of my knee. I’m happy to say I won’t be needing surgery. Thank you.

Surgery for Hamstring Injuries

Is surgery an option to repair your hamstring?

Surgery is not frequently required for hamstring injuries, and is usually reserved for complete tears or avulsion fractures (reattach the muscle to the bone).

An avulsion repair will reattach the torn hamstring tendon to the pelvis. This surgery involves making an incision over the spot where the hamstring normally attaches to the ischial tuberosity on the pelvis bone. The surgeon then inserts forceps into the incision to grab the loose part of the tendon that broke away from the bone and pulls it back to its original location. Any scar tissue on the loose end of the tendon is removed, and the surface of the ischial tuberosity is shaved down. Large staples or sutures are then used to reconnect the tendon to the bone.

Success Stories

A muscle repair will fix a complete tear in the hamstring muscle. This surgery involves making an incision on the back of the thigh over the torn hamstring and sewing or reattaching the 2 torn ends together.

Neurolysis of the sciatic nerve involves breaking up adhesions (scar tissue) to free the nerve and relieve the pressure and pain from inflammation. Radio frequency, heat, or chemical injection, have also been used.

Surgery enforces a mandatory rest period, which is one of the main treatment recommendations for hamstring injuries. Keep in mind the longer you have your symptoms prior to surgery, the longer it will take to recuperate. If you return to your activities too soon, you could cause permanent damage. You want to ensure the strength, flexibility and stability of your hamstring muscles, before taking on too much.

Dear MendMeShop,

I have been using the Freeze Wraps to reduce the inflammation, for which they worked great. Last week was the first time I tried the Infernowrap on my right knee and it seems to help just from one treatment. I plan to use it every night when I get back from work. I used the knee Inferno wrap again last night and put it on the medium power and it's helping tremendously. I'm able to bend my knee better and walk with more stability without leaning too much on my left knee to compensate for the injured knee.
