Dear MendMeShop,

My name is Bridget, and I am the one that received the Inferno Wrap that Doug purchased. I had stepped off of my front steps early on Halloween day, I missed the entire bottom step somehow.... and seriously rolled my ankle. I am a avid runner and try to get somewhere between 25-40 miles in a week depending on what I am training for at the time. My ankle swelled like a balloon and stayed that way for 2 solid months! I was unable to run, and believe me I tried. I could barely even walk. I was unable to go to the Dr. because of some insurance issues that were being delt with, so I got on the Internet and started doing some research to see what I could do... That is when I came across your web site. I am not gonna lie, I didn't believe it. I thought it all sounded to good to be true. I actually thought about it for a week before I decided to give it a try, the $ back guarantee is what the deciding factor was for me. OMG!!! I have nothing but praise for your products! It is an amazing thing, it only took 1 week for the swelling to go down and stay down! I was back on the trails, running again on the 8th day! I am continuing to use the Inferno Wrap on a regular basis, thank you so much for getting me back out where I belong... running the Trails.

What is a Rotator Cuff

Shoulder Joint Overview:

The Shoulder joint involves bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments and Synovial tissue. The shoulder joint is made up of three bones: the shoulder blade (Scapula), the collarbone (Clavicle) and the upper arm bone (Humerus). The shoulder is one of the most mobile joints in the body. It is a γball and socketδ joint, which holds the ball (the top, rounded part of the Humerus) in the socket (the shallow, depressed area called the Glenoid cavity, located on the outer edge of the Scapula)

What is the Rotator Cuff?

The Rotator Cuff muscles are connected individually to a group of flat tendons, which fuse together and surround the front, the back, and the top of the shoulder joint like a cuff on a shirt. The tendons attach the muscles to the bone and allow movement in the shoulder, as well as providing strength to hold the ball in its socket. They are involved in all shoulder motions: when the muscles contract, they pull on the rotator cuff tendon, causing the shoulder to rotate upward, inward, or outward, hence the name Rotator Cuff.

The Rotator Cuff ligaments attach bone to bone and provide stability to the shoulder joint bones.

Between the bones, muscle and other soft tissue there is the Bursa (a fluid filled sac) and Synovial fluid (lubricates your joint), which permit smooth gliding between the joint. They also protect the Rotator Cuff from the bony spurs or arches on the shoulder blade.

What muscles make up the Rotator Cuff?

The Rotator Cuff is made up of four small muscles situated close to the ball and socket joint of your shoulder (Glenohumeral joint). These muscles work as a unit, rather than individually. Often people injure one particular member of the Rotator Cuff (the most common diagnosis is Supraspinatus Tendinitis), however most injuries usually involve more than one muscle.

The Supraspinatus is the uppermost muscle of the Rotator Cuff which passes beneath the bone on the top of the shoulder (Acromion). This muscle permits lateral movement away from the midline of the body, so you can move your upper arm up the side and away (abduction). When your arm is raised in a forward position, this tendon and supporting bursa can be pinched (impingement), which causes them to become inflamed and swollen.

The Subscapularis is the Humeral head depressor and internal, medial rotator. This muscle allows you to move your upper arm inward and toward the centre of your body. It is located at the front of the shoulder.

The Infraspinatus is the external, lateral rotator which maintains dynamic joint stability. This muscle allows you to move your upper arm outward and away from the centre of your body (abduction). It is found at the back of the shoulder.

The Teres minor is the external, lateral rotator which maintains dynamic joint stability. This muscle allows you to move your upper arm outward and away from the centre of your body (abduction). It is located at the back of the shoulder.

What Causes a Rotator Cuff Injury?

Rotator Cuff injuries are very common, especially in people over 40 years of age. Most problems involve damage and irritation to the Rotator Cuff soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons and bursa) rather than the bones, as they move frequently within a tight space. A Rotator Cuff injury usually begins as inflammation caused by some form of small but continuous source of irritation, such as repetitive overhead motions from sporting activities, work tasks or daily chores, which can lead to severe Tendonitis or Bursitis.

If you do not address the cause of the inflammation, a partial or complete tear can develop in your Rotator Cuff due to chronic wear and tear of the tendon. A tear may also result at any age from an acute or single traumatic event, such as a fall onto an outstretched arm.

Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy

You can help your body repair itself by speeding its natural healing process using an Inferno Wrap™. The Inferno Wrap's patented design delivers the most effective Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy you can find.

Inferno Wraps stimulate blood flow

During normal activities, the movement promotes blood flow through our body. Our body responds to the movement by sending oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the muscles, joints, tendons and other soft tissue in the body.

When at rest, the blood flow to your tendons is greatly reduced. Unfortunately, when your tendon is injured it requires rest but it also needs the blood flow to promote the healing process. Since you can't work your tendon without danger of further injury, you need to stimulate the blood flow another way.

Our innovative Inferno Wrap™ gives you the best Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy available. The Inferno Wrap™ creates energy waves that stimulate blood flow by penetrating through the outer layers of your body. The energy waves reach deep into your muscles, tendons and cartilage, reducing your pain as they heal the inner tissue.

An Inferno Wrap™ gives you unparalleled blood flow stimulation to your injured tendon. You simply won't find a comparable product on the market. Other therapy products can not come close to offering the comfortable, contoured fit and targeted energy treatment an Inferno Wrap™ provides.

You will experience a soothing, penetrating warmth deep in the tissue as it works to stimulate your blood flow, we guarantee it. Now you can reduce your pain and heal yourself with the comfortable, light weight Inferno Wrap™.

Success

The Inferno Wrap™ provides effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief with no side effects.

When your tendon has healed somewhat and it comes time for more aggressive rehabilitation, stretching and activity, Blood Flow Stimultation Therapy warms the muscles in the injured area which increases range of motion and allows for a safer more thorough stretch.

Therapeutic Ultrasound

xyliss ultrasound

Ultrasound Therapy is also a great tool for pain prevention of tendonitis or healing a tendon tear, and having a therapeutic ultrasound device at home can be a powerful and convenient treatment tool. If you have symptoms of tendonitis or are recovering from a tendon injury, using ultrasound on a regular basis before your activity or throughout the day will help relax your tendons and muscles, diminish pain and inflammation, soften scar tissue and contribute greatly to the healing of your injury.

Therapeutic Ultrasound heats and massages your soft tissue giving you three primary benefits. First, it increases blood flow in the treated area which speeds your body's natural healing process. Second, it reduces swelling and edema which are the main sources of pain. Third, ultrasound softens existing scar tissue and minimizes the build up of new scar tissue resulting in reduced pain while healing and greater flexibility once healing is complete.

Eucalyptus...
It's in our Gel!

Ultrasound can also be used to administer therapeutic medicines into the body. This is a process known as phonophoresis. Ultrasound with Phonophoresis is rapidly becoming more popular than Ultrasound Therapy alone.

Tendon Injury Treatment - MendMeShop Ultrasound Therapy Gel
Peppermint...
It's in our gel too!

Our MendMeShop Lavender Infusion Gel is the only topical therapeutic gel that is also a Phonophoretic Ultrasound Gel. It is made with natural medical ingredients including eucalyptus, peppermint, Bulgarian lavender and menthol. These effective ingredients have anesthetic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, decongestant, and circulatory stimulant properties. When applied topically and massaged into the skin, MendMeShop Lavender Infusion Gel relieves pain and speeds healing without any side-effects.

Cold Compression Therapy

Our cold compression wraps work by interrupting and slowing nerve and cell function in the area of your injured tendon. Once blood vessels are damaged they can no longer carry oxygenated blood to the damaged tissue and therefore cells begin to break-down. The deep cold provided by our cold compression wraps slows cell function thereby reducing cellular break-down. Furthermore, because the cold wraps serve to numb the nerves, the wraps also reduce pain!

We have noticed over time that our customers are so fond of our cold wraps that they are frequently coming back and ordering a second one - this way they can cool one while wearing the other. The wraps are becoming very popular with baseball and soccer trainers, and the wraps can be conveniently stored in a cooler for quick application on the field when needed.

Always allow the injured area to return to normal body temperature between hot and cold treatments by waiting 60-90 minutes before applying a different therapy.

Dear MendMeShop,

Thank you for spending time answering my questions and concerns on the Knee Inferno Wrap and wrist products and how to use them. I appreciate that, and I am impressed with your company's personal availability to personally talk with customers. In a fast pace, seemingly no care, 'all out for my benefit' mentality in our society it is refreshing to know I can go on-line and there are people doing business who do care for their product and the people buying them.
I went on-line to find help in treating my very painful meniscus and other issues Arthroscopic surgery on my right knee, that were more severe that my left knee issues had been, so I could find help in speeding up my recovery and get back on my feet again. Having had the same surgery on my left knee only 6 months prior, I was not able to recover as fast as my left knee had not yet fully recovered enough to take the full load of both knees. The Dr. said nothing about recovery only that I could not even put toe weight on my right knee for 4 weeks. So, with my left knee still in recovery this made life extremely difficult. So much so, I had to go to a wheel chair so I would not ruin either of my knees or my back which is suffering from degenerative discs. My knee issues stem from aging and over-use over the years. They are just wearing out.
I am an active person and was not going to consign myself to a wheel chair for the rest of my life. I had no access to physical therapy treatments in my personal situation. So, I took the bull by the horns and got busy finding out what I could do to help myself recover faster and get back in action physically. And I found your company.
I started my personal quest on Internet, which is all I was able to do physically at the time, and found your company, MendMeShop.com. I read all your info and was impressed with what I read and felt comfortable that you were genuine and were out to help me fully recover. The fully guaranteed refund was a plus to me so that I would not spend a lot lf money for something that I would be stuck with and as well did me no good.
You also had a personal way to contact your company to discuss any concerns I might have in using it. You also had expedited mailing so that I could have your product in a few days so I could get started in my recovery. I was willing to pay the extra mailing cost to get the product faster. You really came through on your end and I had my Inferno Knee Wrap in just a few days. That really firmed up to me that you back up your claims about your product and that you truly cared about me and so I could get onto faster recovery sooner.
After receiving the Inferno Knee Wrap, I was having personal issues in how often to use the Knee Wrap and so I called you to help me with this. I felt that the knee wrap was helping me, but I was finding that I could not use it to the fullest degree the instructions mentioned. You helped me and told me to call you back. From your recommendations, I started experimenting on my own to see what would work for me and I found a workable solution for me personally. Each person is unique and what works for one person may not work for another. So, I recommend not giving up and returning this product until you find what works for you.
Because my knee issues are so severe, it will take longer than I want it to, but I am plugging away and using the Inferno Knee Wrap along with stationery bike exercise and I am seeing progress each day.
Thank you for being there when I needed help in recovery of Arthroscopic Knee Surgery. I appreciate you and your company.
