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.
I have purchased several pieces from your shop (Tortoise Shellz Full Body Therapy Pad along with two Wrist Inferno Wraps) and we are very happy with all of them.
In fact, I don't know what we would do without them, as all the injuries are improving gradually.
Thank you for these wonderful products, and thank you, too, for the personal attention to your customers. A rarity, in today's world!

I'm usually a bit of a skeptic but I am absolutely amazed at the improvement in my knee. I was diagnosed with Lateral tendonitis - never knew it could be so painful.
I actually started walking again yesterday and look forward to getting back to Boo[See Full Review]tcamp soon.
Also great for ribs I have broken; cracked and even fractured almost all my ribs in all this ; you trip fall just right and you can't stop yourself well rest is history feels good on that part. Let me tell you, just last week I bent over and pulled m[See Full Review]y ab muscle so I wore the Inferno Wrap over my abs and helped heal in 3 days, back in action again.[Close Review]

I just wanted to let you know that your products worked very well for my elbow problem.
It did take more time than the initial warranty so I appreciate your company extending this time period. Your communication via email and telephone, explaining [See Full Review]the correct procedure for the use of your products, were key. This allowed me to see that I was not using them exactly as I should and it made a big difference.
I used them to the letter and today my elbow pain is gone - completely. I was ready to go to a surgeon so this was a much better alternative.
Your Knee Inferno Wrap arrived in the UK last Monday and my son has been using it for the past week. He has just emailed to say it is making a great difference already and he is able to bend his knee much further than before.
He is delighted as the[See Full Review] leg feels stronger too and he will continue to use it while he under goes physio which starts tomorrow.
Fingers crossed his recovery will be quicker than expected because he has been able to use your product.
We thank you for your excellent product and will keep you updated over the following weeks.
A follow up received from Kim a few months later:
The wrap continued to do its good work and my son made a really quick recovery much to the surprise of the medical professional.
He has now returned to work with full mobility although he continues to use the wrap prior to excercise as it warms the muscles thoroughly.
I have a trochanteric bursitis, and have been seriously bothered by it for more than a year. My rheumatologist gave me two steroid injections which helped briefly and then the pain started again, and th[See Full Review]at pain is almost crippling. Celebrex was recommended and it worked for me except that I have IBS and unfortunately couldn?t continue to take it. Besides it is a systematic drug and who knows what else it may effect.
I was in pain and decided to check out the internet and that is where I found you. I was uncertain about the use of electromagnetic therapy, it sounded like it might be in the snake oil category, but fortunately for me I got good confirmation about the legitimacy of the product.
I have to say I am so glad that I made the purchase.
You are right I felt a difference with the first treatment using the inferno wrap. I have continued to use it about two times a day. I am very impressed with you product. I still have pain, more on same days than others, but it is greatly reduced and I am able to walk without severe pain.
I also ordered the freeze wrap but haven?t used it yet. I expect a situation will arise when I may want to. I will recommend you and your product to anyone who may benefit.
I am writing to tell you how pleased I have been with not only your products but your commitment to the product and service aspects.
You folks are attentive, knowledgeable and most definitely out for the good of the customer!
Many years ago I tol[See Full Review]d my own staff that "Because of the Customer We Exist." This means more in the 21st century when clients have choices - offering a top-notch product is expected, but offering a superior product with superior service means even more. I can't thank you enough for helping me through a knee injury!
So far so good. After using a variety of ice packs there is no comparison in comfort and success of reducing swelling in the affected areas with these ?Freezie Wraps?.
We will continue to use them and let you know how it goes!

I am a retired Orthopedic Surgical Registered Nurse First Asst and I just want to say this Shoulder Inferno Wrap is wonderful.
I have had adhesive capsulitis in my left shoulder several times.
I am 67yo now and I have Arthritis, Lupus and fi[See Full Review]bromyalgia and I had bilat knee replacements in 2001. It has always taken about 6months to get back use of my arm and to get relief from pain.
I read your information and was expecting it to take at least 6weeks to see an improvement. I have used it this short time since receiving it and I am almost painfree.
Occasionally I start to feel a little ache and I put it back on before it becomes pain I have full range of motion when I could not brush my hair or fasten my bra.
Again, I am so pleased and hope it helps others too.
I would like to encourage others to try the products and see if they get the same remarkable results as I did. I continue to improve with full ROM remaining and only occasional episodes of pain; As soon as I feel any pain, I use it 2-3 days in a row and the pain is gone. This is probably Arthritis as it feels different. [Close Review]

The cold (Knee Freezie Wrap) & hot (Knee Inferno) wrap combo, along with the knee-flex allowed me to get back to work in half the time I was expecting.
My older son injured his knee & I was able to help him during his visit. He was amazed, & had mo[See Full Review]re recovery progress in a week than he had the 2 weeks prior.
So far, the products seem to be working fine. I have used both but mostly the Freezie Wrap for the inflammation from the meniscus injury.
I do like the fact that the Freezie Wrap makes it easier for me to ice my knee than using anything else

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[See Full Review] 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.[Close Review]

I, Judy Byrne bought this (Inferno Plantar Wrap) for my son Chris. I have one and just love it!
He loves his too. He says he can really tell the difference after refereeing 2 ball games.
I love the freezie wraps, and use them for hip pain. They work well at night to take away most of the bursitis like pain.
The Mend Me shop has provided excellent advice and treatment protocol which has been invaluable.

I'm 52 & in fairly good shape, I mountain bike for hours - at least twice a week. I kayak offshore for hours twice a week. I also snorkle & work out.
So when my son invited me to play paint ball, my leg muscles were strong enough to do what my mind [See Full Review]told them...to a point where my left leg (the one that got bent backwards playing little league baseball 29 years ago) became so painful the next day.
I was shocked & amazed how I had gone from in great shape to a hobbling old man.
A bit of research I re-learned hot before & cold after a workout/activity.
Cold packs are cheap at the drug store & heat pads are too, but destroyed a few of these in the microwave oven to heat. I found the frozen packs seemed a bit too much & the heat pads ether nearly burned me or wasn't hot enough to get deep.
I then went back & ordered your hot & cold products AND MY PRODUCTS GOT HERE IN MAUI IN TWO DAYS ARRIVING ASTONISHINGLY ON A SATURDAY !!!!
I now heat up both my knees before a workout or just as good treatment & cool 'em down after. I feel like I'm 99% better but I'll continue to use these products as I feel it'll keep me from getting a knee injury.
The relief is so wonderful...I paddle for hours and I have no issues.[Close Review]

I can tell you I have already seen the difference and good effect, and i only used them (Back/Hip Inferno and Leg/Arm Inferno Wraps) for one week.
Big test was Saturday when I went to cut my grass and after had no pain in my leg.
What I can report is that the treatments make a difference.
I have a bone spur. My routine is to start at 6:00 am because in the morning is when it hurts the most. I have discovered a way to wrap my foot with both the planter ligament wrap and th[See Full Review]e Achilles tendon wrap at the same time. I do the cold for 20 minutes, let it rest for 20 minutes, then do the hot for 20 minutes.
While the pain does not go away, it does go from excruciating to tolerable. Each day I'm able to do a little more in the way of household chores I am even starting to go swimming again. I look out at the garden and dream of the day I can get back to work there.
I told my podiatrist about your product and he said that is exactly what he wants me to do, cold then hot, plenty of water. He asked for information about your products, so I am taking it with me at my next visit.
So, yes, all in all, I am happy with your product. But mostly I am pleased with your company. Like this letter for example, I am sure that you have hundreds of customers, but you make me feel like I'm the only one, or the most important. I feel like you care that I am experiencing pain and you want your product to help me. I wish you much success with your business.
Yours Truly, Peggy
Peggy emailed us 3 weeks after her first comments with a promising update:
My bone spur has improved to the point that I use the treatments only once a day in the morning, with an occasional treatment in the evening after dinner.
And there are days when there is no pain at all throughout the day!![Close Review]

Thank you so much for your communication. I am loving the Ankle Inferno wrap and just wish that I was disciplined enough to use it more because I believe I am actually feeling better!
I look forward to extended time with the device and hope to re[See Full Review]ap more benefits in the future.
I was hesitant to purchase the dorsal night splint since I thought that it would be awkward to sleep with, but with a limited budget I decided to purchase the splint and the freeze wrap for treating plantar fascitis. Within less than 2 weeks I notice[See Full Review]d that I could walk without pain when I got up in the morning! This was amazing, since it usually took several minutes of severe limping before I could walk normally in the past. I just did a trip with my husband where we walked on hiking trails for up to 5 miles each day and my foot did just fine. I was amazed that I could do all this with only 2 weeks of treatment![Close Review]
