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 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.

Two years ago, after returning to the gym for the first time in over a decade, I developed intense lower back pain which radiated into my left hip and leg. I also developed snapping hip syndrome.
After many expensive visits to a chiropractor and phy[See Full Review]sical therapist, I gained some relief, but still experienced constant low level pain in the injured areas with episodes of intense debilitating pain which interfered with my sleep and work. After searching online for alternative and cost effective self treatment methods, I discovered your website and purchased your Back/Hip Inferno Wrap and Back/Hip Freezie Wrap.
Within a short period of time of using these products, I noticed a huge reduction in pain. Two months later, the pain is barely noticeable, the snapping hip syndrome is an unpleasant memory and I feel that significant long term healing of chronic injuries is taking place.
I absolutely LOVE your products, and enthusiastically recommend them to everyone I meet who is experiencing similar pain issues. Kudos to Paul and everyone in your customer service department which is beyond compare in terms of knowledge, promptness and genuine concern for your customers![Close Review]

I'm treating a recent ankle sprain. The injury occurred while playing volleyball.
RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) alone or in the past did not seem to really help. I've tried other herbal remedies that didn't appear to help or still took [See Full Review]a long time to recover. I did an internet search for a quicker recovery process.
I can tell immediately after each use that there is definitely less pain to the touch. And I always felt heat therapy worked better for me. Now I know why, because it promotes circulation and healing.
That's why I also purchased the Inferno Ankle Wrap. At first I did not feel it was providing enough heat. However, my foot was always sweating after each use! With other solutions the temperature was never constant and sometimes I would burn my foot. I knew from my past ankle sprain on my other leg that it took forever to heal. Even 2 years later, I still felt it move. This time I wanted to make sure it did not happen again.
I'm doing surprisingly well with my ankle so far. I played volleyball the following week and back to usual routine the week after, snowboarding one day and volleyball the next. Even though I'm not 100% yet after 3 weeks, I feel the Inferno Ankle Wrap has greatly attributed to my quick recovery! I would definitely recommend it and the customer service has been truly exceptional! Thank you![Close Review]

It has been just over 2 months since I started using my knee Inferno Wrap for a MCL injury. I have used it as directed and have had great results. I am 80% healed with little pain as I write. I am planning to resume surfing this week after a 3 mon[See Full Review]th layoff. I am 62. I definitely recommend Inferno Wrap as an alternative to surgery.
Thanks again, Randy Best

I would be happy to let you know that I am VERY pleased with the Knee Inferno Wrap that I purchased from your company in June. I suffered from recurring knee problems, pain and swelling when I would exercise or stand too long. I used it as instruc[See Full Review]ted 3-4 times a day along with light cycling and swimming, my knee has improved dramatically!!
I absolutely LOVE the Inferno Wrap and continue to use it when I overdo it and feel any discomfort in my knee. It truly does seem to speed up the recovery process. I would recommend your products to others.
I have owned the elbow Inferno Wrap for over a year now. I have had tennis elbow in both elbows for over 15 years.
After any activity using either arm, both elbows ache...heavily.
About 15 months ago, the tennis elbow got so bad in my left arm[See Full Review] I had to finally go under the knife for torn tendons both in my elbow and my bicep. I could not even extend my arm while sleeping and the gym was a FAR fetched memory. The process from the first doctor's appointment to the actual operating table took about 4 months.
I was also told the recovery would be about 3 months and not fully recovered from the tears for a full year. I was informed that no matter what I did, I would always have this inflammation in my elbow and I needed something to give.
Either my activity level, including the gym, would have to be cut down drastically, or I had to find a way to get the inflammation down. I am allergic to all anti-inflammatories and NSAIDS.
This is where my researched turned up the Inferno Wrap.
As you can imagine, I have tried all sorts of heating pads, cooling pads, ice therapy, and months of physical therapy. I believe I even found the Mend Me Shop and the Inferno Wrap while looking for something along the heating and cooling pad line. My immediate thought was why are these so expensive? What makes them so special? I have to say that initially,
I took a chance because I had no other option for relief.
The day the Inferno Wrap arrived, I knew I had something I had not had access to before. You can tell IMMEDIATELY tell after turning this on that is is working DEEP into the tissue. The wrap does get warm, but in NO WAY is this a heating pad.
THIS IS THE ONLY THING THAT PROVIDED AND CONTINUES TO PROVIDE ME RELIEF.
I have not dialed down my activity level. When my elbows ache, the Inferno Wrap goes on, and within one 20 minute treatment, the ache is gone.
Believe me when I say I have been looking for this for 15 years steady. I have since recommended to EVERYONE I know the Inferno Wrap, and have purchased one for my back, which works just as well, as expected. This is a product that works.
This is a product that is backed by good customer service. This is a product that is worth EVERY PENNY.
Knowing what I know now, buying the Inferno Wrap was no chance, but a miracle and nothing less. [Close Review]

I thank the One Above for having your website befall on me.
My Inferno Wrap is absolutely perfectly designed, and absolutely perfectly works as advertised. My first-20 minute treatment tells it all: My Inferno Wrap, from the get-go, provided complet[See Full Review]e relief, and unquestionable will keep doing the same on the other parts of my injured body.
My Inferno Wrap: Just Perfect. Period.
Also, thank you for your patience, as I unloaded my many questions on you.
I have only used the inferno heat wrap for about 2 weeks for a fairly significant achilles tendon problem that has plagued me for several months. A recent MRI shows partial tears and an irregular shape to part of the tendon.
It seems to me I am ge[See Full Review]tting amazing results already from use of the products I purchased. I am back to playing tennis on a limited basis and realize I need to show restraint but it certainly appears I am on the mend.
I am extremely impressed by the professionalism of your company and the personnel that I have talked to in the ordering process.[Close Review]

Hello April, thank you for your follow up email.
I recently purchased the inferno wrap July 5th 2012 and I am using it diligently, I have seen positive results already in just a few weeks. I no longer need to walk with a cane. I would like to than[See Full Review]k MendMeShop ever so much for giving back me my life. I will continue to use the inferno wrap and I have spread the good word to all my friends on how MendMeShop product has helped me.
I wanted to get back to you with feedback about the Inferno Wrap. So far we are very pleased with the size, light weight, flexibility and comfort of the wrap.
It is very convenient the way the cord is set up. If one has to leave the area for a m[See Full Review]oment it is much easier now because instead of removing the entire wrap or unplugging the whole thing from the wall, you can just detach at the segment.
I like the on/off switch, too. It is much easier to see which setting it is on.
Everything about this new product seems more intelligent and user friendly. A lot of thought was put into improving on the old product. Well done to all involved!!![Close Review]

I recently went to a Rheumatologist and was diagnosed with DeQuervains tenosynovitis. I was tested and treated with a cortizone shot, pain medication and was told to continue using the brace I bought previous to the visit. The shot may have lasted al[See Full Review]l of 4 hours. I went online to research the condition and treatment. I ordered the Wrist Inferno Wrap immediately after reading the reviews and what it could do for the pain I was experiencing.
To my surprise this wrap starting working within a couple of days. I could not believe it! Although this treatment indicates it would take atleast 4 to 6 weeks, I am experiencing relief already. The nodule beneath my thumb where I was experiencing the spasms has disappeared. THIS PRODUCT really works.
I am so greatful to you and endorse this product 100%. I am hoping to be completely healed with continued use soon. Thank you so much for creating a product that TRULY WORKS. I use as recommended 3 times a day including in the office. I rate this product as EXCELLENT![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.
Dear Mendmeshop, I would like to thank Mendmeshop for being such a blessing. I have always been a runner all my life and last November 2010 it finally caught up to me. I was in severe pain with my foot and I didn't understand why after further inves[See Full Review]tigation I realized that I had tendonitis of my foot. I was devastated because the pain was almost unbearable at times. I could barely sit down or stand up for periods of time without being in excruciating pain. I never thought that I would be able to work out again, until finally, I discovered your shop. Needless to say that after using the inferno wrap and Night tread foot splint I am running again!!!! Every now and then I experience some discomfort with my foot after work out or whatever but that s understandable you guys are truly, truly, truly, a blessing thank you all and God Bless because I got my life back!

I started playing tennis again at least 3x a week a couple weeks ago.
I'm use the inferno wrap mornings and nights and if I have time - the middle of the day. My foot is continuing to feel better and better. The morning after tennis I have a litt[See Full Review]le soreness but very slight. It is the best my foot as felt in the last year.
After trying everything to get rid of my fasciitis, (exercises, ice, stretching every day and wearing a splint) for months, I finally feel my foot will be completely healed. I stopped wearing the night splint a couple weeks ago. I still stretch my foot at least once in the morning but have stopped all the other exercises. I ice after tennis also.
I am very happy with the results I've had since using the Inferno Wrap. I began using it April 27th and noticed results after using it the first week. My foot has continued to heal more and more.
And being able to play tennis 3-4x a week with no pain after is wonderful. The wrap was worth it for the good results I'm having.[Close Review]

The Shoulder Inferno wrap is working well for my shoulder bursitis.
I went to my primary care doctor this week, and she was very interested in the treatments and the success - when little else was working in the last 5 months.
Did want to let you know that I was extremely pleased with both the Knee Inferno and the Knee Freezie Wrap that I ordered, the quality is outstanding and should serve our family well over the coming years when required.
The Knee Inferno provided mu[See Full Review]ch needed relief while I waited eight weeks for my appointment with an Orthopedic practice in my area - very glad I chose to make the investment.
A couple of years ago I helped my husband cut firewood on a hillside. I began to experience pain in my Achilles tendon shortly after we had finished getting all of the firewood cut, split and stacked. I limped through the winter and in the spring be[See Full Review]gan to worry that I wouldn't be able to take care of my gardens.
I finally went to the doctor and was prescribed physical therapy.
The PT did help with the pain but didn't really "cure" the problem. I continued home physical therapy for another year and began to research therapies to help the tendon. I wanted to avoid surgery if possible.
I came across the MendMeShop website and read about the products recommended for Achilles tendon. The cost seemed minimal compared to what I had already spent at the doctor and physical therapist. I ordered the Inferno Wrap and the Freezie Wrap for the ankle and used them according to the directions.
I felt great pain relief and the flexibility in my Achilles returned within a few weeks of treatments.
I have also been using a night splint following my last Inferno Wrap night treatment before retiring. With that regimen, I have been able to avoid a surgical tendon correction and have been able to resume my normal busy activities.
Thank you MendMeShop for your great products and customer service follow-up of the shipment of products.[Close Review]

I am a 57 year old flat footed female, who has suffered off and on for at least 25 years with a painful plantar/heel.
Slept in the splint the first night, and like a miracle, no pain in the morning! The splint looks unwieldy, but is actually q[See Full Review]uite comfortable. Love the Freezie and the Inferno wraps too. Impressed with the quality materials, and the well thought out construction.
I've been using cushions in my shoes, but they only help a little bit.
I am walking pain free these days and it's almost like a miracle! Thanks again for such a wonderful line of products.[Close Review]
The things I ordered from you seem to help and I am glad to have them. It has been really hot weather here so I don't use it as often as I should but it has relaxed the shoulder and I have a lot more movement.
I just wanted to send a huge thank you to your company.
I suffered a fully torn Achilles and unfortunately the system for retired Army officers is not very good -it was 5 weeks before I was seen by a surgeon. He was furious -- but we had to take th[See Full Review]e non surgical route.
After 12 weeks I was cleared and sent to physical therapy - they were dumbfounded with my progress. I shared your products and gracefully explained I would prefer to trust my health to a process that works rather than continue to gamble with a system that is a crap shoot at best. The Doctor agreed!
I love my progress and I work hard each day using the Ankle wrap heat and cold plus the knee flex. Thank you for great products - from a person who DID NOT HAVE SURGERY for a fully ruptured Achilles and the PT is dumbfounded with my progress.
I am so far ahead of my surgical repaired contemporaries.
This is my first testimonial and it would not occurred -- but when I lost my power connector for my heat ankle wrap it was replaced ASAP with no cost I was floored - thank you for mission impossible!![Close Review]

As soon as I began using the shoulder product much of the swelling and pain went away.
I was impressed because I'm a cynical health practitioner. But it does make total sense to move blood flow to tissue that needs to be repaired. There's really no [See Full Review]other way -- except for surgery. And I'm trying to avoid that.
I'd say I have another 30-40% of arm use back.
Thank you MendMeShop for creating such a simple and effective product. [Close Review]
