Dear MendMeShop,

I have been doing very good with your (Back and Ankle) products. Have not had to use the cold much anymore, just the inferno wrap and I can tell I am starting to improve with the device. I did talk with someone a few weeks ago and she gave some usage recommendations. So all in all, your products and personal attention are great.

More Hip Injury Facts:

The hip joint (scientifically known as the acetabulofemoral joint) is a special type of 'ball-and-socket' joint. Its primary function is to support the weight of the body when at rest or while in motion.


Many patients with Hip Pain are actually diagnosed as suffering from Sciatica. Sciatica is best treated non-surgically with cold compression, therapeutic ultrasound and BFST.


The majority of chronic hip problems are a result of aging, disease (such as arthritis) and fractures.


A Hip Replacement is a surgical procedure that replaces the hip joint with an artifical joint. Many MendMyHip customers have sped up their post-surgery recovery time with our therapeutic tools.


Bursitis of the Hip (trochanteric bursitis) is so painful, many sufferers rely on a wheelchar for mobility. Hip Bursitis is the condition that responds extremely well to ultrasound treatments.


The most common injury in the hip is snapping hip syndrome due to a tight illotibial band. This syndrome responds very well to BFST treatments.


Hip Dislocations are very serious but uncommon injuries that occasionally can occur (usually from a traumatic event). If you suspect you have a dislocated hip, please seek medical attention immediately.

 

Dear MendMeShop,

I constantly use the Leg Inferno Wrap for my thigh and hamstring pain......love walking/running. It's great for shin splints.... feels good when muscle gets hot. Really helped when I woke up one morning with a lower leg deep vein Thrombosis really bed with the combo of whey protein; herbs for inflammation; and wearing this I was able to start running again in three weeks and walk normally in 2 weeks. Constantly use every evening and feels good after; For anyone like me it's a great product.

Advanced Hip Injury Treatments

The treatment for an injured and painful hip differs depending on the type of injury you have and your activity level. Initial treatment of an injury in the hip should focus on resting your hip and reducing the inflammation to help relieve pain.

With any hip injury, resting it to prevent further irriation and injury is recommended.

In addition, treating any soft tissue (muscle, tendon, ligament, labrum, IT band, articular cartilage) injury with cold compression, Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy will reduce your pain and speed healing so you can get on with your day sooner, without the nagging reminder of your injury. Once pain has been reduced and your hip has started to heal, physical therapy is usually perscribed to speed recovery and strengthen your hip and leg.

Cold compression therapy is the safe and natural way to control pain and swelling immediately following an injury, after surgery or when re-injury occurs. Along with cold compression, using the Hip Inferno Wrap® to treat sciatica, a torn labrum, osteoarthritis symptoms, tendon and muscle strain, and more is an excellent and easy way to further reduce inflammation and repair damaged tissue.

Scar tissue builds on the hip tendon as the tears heal.

In addition, the Inferno Wrap® will treat scar tissue that forms in and around your hip joint as your body heals. This is an important step in the healing process to regain flexibility and improve range of motion in your hip joint and leg muscles following injury.

Treating your hip injury with blood flow stimulation therapy, or BFST®, is the most natural way to speed healing of your soft tissue. BFST® enhances your body's own healing process by simply increasing the amount of blood that flows to your hip to improve the health of all the tissue in the joint by delivering an abundance of nutrients to the area.

With some hip injuries, arthroscopic hip surgery may be required for procedures such as trimming cartilage, shaving a bone spur, removing a bursa, repairing a torn iliopsoas tendon or labrum or removing a loose piece in the joint. Using cold compression and BFST® before surgery will help to reduce the symptoms of pain and inflammation. This will make it easier for you to continue your everyday activities with less pain while you await your surgery.

In addition, these therapies will help to keep your hip joint tissue and surrounding muscles as healthy as possible. This is beneficial for 2 reasons. First, with less inflammation and healthier tissue in the joint, your surgery will be less invasive and will require less time to heal. More importantly, it will minimize your risk of suffering future hip conditions such as osteoarthritis, hip dislocation, chronic hip pain, and bursitis which is a common condition immediately following surgery due to irritation during the procedure. Following your surgery, continued use of these therapies will result in a faster recovery and more complete healing. There isn't a better way to treat your hip before and after arthroscopic surgery.

Freezie Wrap® Cold Compression Therapy

To decrease inflammation and relieve the pain of a hip injury or degenerative condition doctor's recommend cold compression therapy. Cold compression therapy within the first 72 hours of a hip injury or following surgery is an effective way to relieve pain and swelling while limiting the amount of damage done to your tissue. In addition, cold compression therapy can reduce, or even eliminate, the need for NSAIDs that can be harmful to your body.

The Hip Freezie Wrap treats pain, swelling and inflammation caused by labrum tears, tendon and muscle strain, fracture, dislocation, ITBS, sanpping hip syndrome, bursitis and sciatica while reducing tissue damage.

The Back/Hip Freezie Wrap® is the cold compression tool you need to treat your hip in an effective and convenient way. It is so versatile you can also use it to treat any pain you may be experiencing in your back or legs as well.

The Back/Hip Freezie Wrap® uses a supercharged cooling gel pack, that chills in the fridge, not in the freezer like ice or other freezer packs, giving you deep cold therapy without the risk of 'cold burns' or cryoburn. The medical-grade wrap delivers cold right where you need it.

Cold compression therapy works by interrupting and slowing nerve and cell function in the injured area and reducing swelling that can block blood vessels. This is important because once blood vessels are blocked or damaged, they can no longer carry oxygen and nutrients to your hip and tissue cells begin to break-down. Without cold compression therapy, cellular break-down and tissue damage continues as the cells do not get the oxygen they need to survive.

By limiting the amount of damage done to your tissue, you limit the amount of healing that needs to occur. This is a very important step to heal your hip faster and with less pain!

Inferno Wrap® Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy

After severe inflammation and swelling is reduced you can begin to treat your hip with blood flow stimulation therapy. BFST® increases the amount of blood that flows naturally to your hip to nourish your joint and speed healing.

The acetabular joint naturally receives a limited blood supply and when you stop moving your hip because it hurts the blood flow is reduced even further, limiting your body's natural ability to heal itself.

By treating your hip joint with BFST® you can increase your body's blood supply to the hip and increase your body's natural healing power.

During the healing process, scar tissue builds up to 'repair' the damaged tissue. Unfortunately, scar tissue can bind the acetabular labrum, articular cartilage, ligaments and other tissue together within the joint. The inflexible scar tissue limits the movement of these connective tissues that were once elastic and gave your hip its stability and range of motion. As a result, movement of the entire joint is limited making it difficult to rotate your hip and lift your leg.

An Inferno Wrap® is the tool you need to treat your sore hip because it speeds healing, minimizes scar tissue growth and relaxes the surrounding muscles. With BFST®, tissues are safely and gently stimulated. Your body responds with a rapid increase in blood flow to the area, increasing the supply of oxygen and nutrients to injured tissue cells to promote healing. The Back/Hip Inferno Wrap® from MendMeShop® provides effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief and healing with no side effects.

In addition, the improved blood flow helps reduce the risk of atrophy (muscle weakness and/or deterioration) in your muscles. When you stop moving your leg and hip due to pain, your muscles and other tissue can become weaker and dead cells and toxins in the area can cause further tissue deterioration - this can lead to atrophy in your quadriceps, hamstrings and other leg muscles. The Back/Hip Inferno Wrap® can also be used to treat your back, leg and other body parts with BFST®. It is an amazing healing tool that can be used to treat your entire body.

By clearing the area of toxins and increasing the amount of oxygen and nutrients to your muscle and tendon tissue, the risk of atrophy is greatly reduced. Keeping your upper leg and hip joint tissue as healthy as possible throughout the healing process will allow you to improve hip strength again once your pain has gone and your injury has healed.

Specialized Hip Bursitis Treatment Options

Dear MendMeShop,

I purchased the Inferno wrap and Freezie wrap to treat a chronic Achilles tendonosis (MICROSCOPIC TEARS OF THE TENDON AT THE INSERTION). During the later part of 2008 I was experiencing a lot of tight muscle and tendons and usually working out (running) tired and not properly warmed up and limber. I started the new year with good intention and determined to work on stretching that included following a home yoga program. I am familiar with yoga but admit that I was too aggressive with the stretching that comes from the 'downward dog' position. I believe this aggravated an already existing condition in the Achilles insertion area, this combined with the stress of a late January 5KM road race caused enough pain in the Achilles tendon to force me to discontinue running. I sought medical attention from my family physician who referred me to physiotherapy. Through the early stage of therapy I continued to do regular bike workouts. Unfortunately the pain increased to the point that I had to stop both running and cycling. I attended physiotherapy for just over two months going once a week receiving massage to the injured area, ultrasound, cortisone by patch and ice. I was religious in following the gentle stretching and strengthening routine at home between physio visits. After these two months with little improvement they released me with the instruction to continue with the stretching, strength exercises and ice. I was still in pain and could not run or cycle without causing further damage, walking was painful. I search for other solutions and found the information on the MendMeShop web site. Although skeptical, I purchased the wraps out of desperation, received the product, read all the literature for use and started into a daily routine. Within 7 days I started to experience a reduction in the constant pain. Within 9 days I was walking without a constant reminder of the injury. I tried doing a ride and although the short 13 mile ride was enjoyable I started to feel the injury flair up again. The injury is not completely healed but the progress I am experiencing gives me hope that with a continued discipline of home treatment using the products, gentle stretching and the use of wearing a brace on my foot while sleeping to prevent the tendon from retracting, will in time bring about the full healthy healing of the injured area. I have found that you really have to be in tune with what you are feeling during the gentle stretching and often back off the stretch so as not to cause repetitive injury to the already weakened area of the Achilles insertion.
