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 bought the knee wrap for my husband and he has gotten significant relief from it.
He only uses it occasionally now but used it every day for the first couple of months and felt it helped greatly.
I have one of your other products which I use on my hip (which I believe has bursitis). It has been a godsend. I used it a lot in the beginning and now only have to use it once in a while--esp when there is a low front going through which usually aggravates my hip and my knee and my husband's knee.
Thank you for your wonderful products.

I have to admit, I fully expected to be returning my order. (inferno wrap, freezie wrap) I told my wife "this is a lot of money and if doesn't work I'm sending it back", "I've got 60 days".
Well after about 9 days of (2) treatments per day my severe[See Full Review] case of Lateral Epicondylitis (tennis elbow) is almost pain free. I tried wearing the over the counter tendon support brace with absolutely no results.
My elbow pain was so bad I couldn't sleep at night and just knew I was going to have to see a doctor. Then I found your website. I was very impressed with the quality of your wraps, very thick and made form high quality materials. I guess the old adage "you get what you pay for" speaks volumes here.
I'm completely sold on your products and won't be returning anything!!! Thank you for helping heal my tennis elbow and I've already told many of my friends about your web site.
My ankle wraps (Inferno and Freezie) have done me good. I used to have pain so intense that I could not sleep.
I still work and when I come home from work, I would be in such pain that I could not find a way to get comfortable or relax.
I use my f[See Full Review]reeze wrap for fifteen minutes and my inferno wrap for another fifteen minutes and I can relax the rest of the night. I have also been getting a full night of sleep and wake up pain free.
I shall continue to use the ankle wraps along with my (medication) and my stretching exercises, I'll be able to go on working until my retirement in three years.
Thank you so much for making this product available to Achilles pain sufferers. [Close Review]

I had gone to 3 different doctors, with no results. So I decided to do something myself. Looked up on internet and ran across your information. Which covered everything and with the 2 month guarantee I thought it couldn't hurt to try. Boy, am I glad[See Full Review] I did. My knee improved in a two weeks time. I wasn't able to use the wrap 3 times a day, but I did try. I could not believe the difference it made and how soon it healed. I had been using a cane. I'm back to normal. Thank you so much, Katherine [Close Review]
So far, so good! I've used the shoulder...
So far, so good! I've used the shoulder treatment 4x a day for a week now and seen a marked improvement in my shoulder with both flex ability and pain relief.
As a follow up one week after the initial comments...
Things are going well with my healing sessions. I had it three times daily with each session lasting 20 minutes maximum for two weeks. I noticed reduction of pain in my third day using the Inferno Wrap. In my Second week I reduced the sessions to jus[See Full Review]t one (20 Minute) per day. The pain is almost gone except when I make a wrong and abrupt move on or of my right (problematic) shoulder.
Hopefully, I do not have to use the Freeze Wrap this summer when I do most of my heavy yard work, but I am assured that there is this cold treatment if in case I hurt my shoulder again.
I now have decided not to have an MRI on my shoulder and undergo more expensive treatments or therapy from my specialist ortho doctor . I think his diagnosis of "Frozen shoulder" or possible rotator cup tear are correct. I will be watching my progress and if condition gets worse, I will call him again for appointment.
But for the mean time, I am satisfied with my Inferno Wrap treatment on myself. I am glad to have save time and money at least for now.
Thanks again for your wonderful products and support.
Warm Regards to your Team.

it's been almost nine months ago since I purchased your products. I am happy to let you know as today that my frozen shoulder is no longer an issue. I believed in less than a month of continuous therapy sessions per your instructions on the product my pain is gone.[Close Review]
Hello April, thank you for your follow up...
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 am always amazed by companies who still deliver true customer service to their clients, it blows me away.
Me and my husband both have knee issues and would like to purchase additional knee wraps in the future as they truly make a difference afte[See Full Review]r using them.
I have recommended your website to my physical therapist for his other patients as he saw a substantial difference in my mobility and decreased usage of pain killers.
Thanks again for your superior customer service and attention to detail and follow through. It is sad to say, but in this day and age those are rare qualities to find in a company. Make it a great day!
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 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 u[See Full Review]sage recommendations.
So all in all, your products and personal attention are great.[Close Review]
The first time I used the shoulder inferno...
The first time I used the shoulder inferno wrap and the freezie wrap was to treat a rotator cuff injury I sustained from over use and aging. I was in my early 60's and an avid tennis player,kayaker, skier, hiker and biker for most of my life. Docto[See Full Review]rs were recommending surgery but I opted for physical therapy. This helped but did not give me the relief I needed to continue with all of my athletic activities. Then I started using your product. After activities where I used my shoulder, even weight training, I used the freezie wrap followed by the inferno wrap. Then I used the inferno wrap periodically throughout the day while at work. I'm a therapist and my clients were OK with me wearing the wrap during sessions if I felt the need to. I experienced the ability to use my shoulder and be completely pain free. I was thrilled. Then at age 65 I began to have achilles tendon inflammation which became extremely painful. Doctors explained to me that as we age tendons lose flexibility and are more prone to injury. I bought that explanation to a point but again tried physical therapy, prolonged stretching, Ibuprofen and rest. I had relief if I used large regular doses of anti-inflamatory medications but was concerned about the long term negative affects of the meds. I purchased the Ankle inferno and freezie wrap and began the same routine I had used with my rotator cuff injury. I'm happy to say the results were the same. Even this aging body was able to repair and stretch my achilles tendon with exercise, and the cold and warm treatments from your products. Now I am still playing tennis and doing all of my other activities and I remain pain free. After athletics I use the freezie wrap followed by the inferno wrap. Also, before I play racket sports or hike I use the inferno wrap on my ankle and follow with gentle stretching. When I get home I use the freezie wrap. Who knows how long I will be able to continue my active life style. But right now I know that these products are enabling me to be an active, vibrant, aging woman who can (almost) keep up with my kids. I should add that I also maintain a healthy weight, train with weights, exercise every day and eat a plant based diet with lean protein. Even my healthy lifestyle wasn't enough to prevent these nagging injuries that become more prevalent as we age. So....thanks for making a great product ...... and my life more manageable.[Close Review]
In February of this year, I injured my knee...
In February of this year, I injured my knee while exercising. Since I lost my health benefits through my job due to the economy, I wasn't able to afford a professional diagnosis.
The outside area of my left knee was swollen, stiff and painful and [See Full Review]I could not put any weight on that area. After mowing my lawn, gardening, exercising or any other physical activity the swelling, stiffness and pain were much worse. I was using a bag of frozen crinkle cut carrots attached by a rubber band around my knee to help alleviate the pain & swelling - not a very high tech solution!
I searched online to find what if anything I could do myself to rehab and repair my injury and thankfully I found your web site.
From the information your site provided, I determined I had a torn meniscus as the symptoms associated with that were exactly what I was experiencing. I ordered the Knee Therapy Kit, received it in less than one week and began using the kit immediately.
It has now been 7 days since I started using the kit and I have already noticed results.
My swelling has gone down, the pain is gone and the stiffness is occasional instead of constant. I am so delighted with these results as I am very active and this knee problem was really affecting my lifestyle. Not only that, but I was looking forward to doing a lot of surfing this summer and I am excited as I believe I will be able to without any problems!
I will be telling everyone about your web site and products and that is saying a lot because it is rare and refreshing for me to find products that work so well.
I ordered this wrap after finding out I have a Calcium deposit in my shoulder which has turned to Tendinitis. The Freezie wrap is awesome and instantly takes the pain away. The only thing negative I can say is if you are right at a 40 size chest orde[See Full Review]r the SM/LG (under 40'). I am in the process of exchanging sizes because I ordered the LG/XL (40'-48') and the wrap is bulky and very big. I am right on the cute off for 40' and went bigger when I first ordered and should have ordered the small.[Close Review]
A couple of years ago I helped my husband cut...
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]
Your Knee Inferno Wrap arrived in the UK last...
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 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]

I was overwhelmed by your speed and thoroughness regarding my problem. Everything is working just fine with the new Knee wrap.

I am most satisfied with the products that I purchased. It is clearly high quality and I am positive it will heal my knee in the long run.
I am really looking forward to getting my knee sorted out permanently. I did have a knee operation about two [See Full Review]years ago but there were no time to give it a decent recovery time.
Unfortunately as a mechanic working on the power plant here in Salerno, we work on gravel surfaces 24/7 for 85 days before returning home for a 3 week vacation. At the age of 53 it becomes real stress full and I also had to put away my running shoes, which was also a blow to me.
I am very confident that your products will get me back on the road again and I would love to do the Comrades ultra marathon in South Africa for the third time.
