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,

Treating Sciatica Pain

Sciatica, also called sciatic neuritis, is used to describe symptoms of pain, tingling, numbness and weakness that can radiate from the lower back all the way down to the foot.

Pinching of a sciatic nerve can be caused by disc herniation and piriformis syndrome.

These symptoms result from the compression or irritation of one of 5 nerve roots in the spine (sacral nerves S1, S2, or S3 or lumbar nerves L4 or L5) that connect and form the 2 sciatic nerves, or pinching or irritation of the sciatic nerve itself.

The sciatic nerve is the longest and thickest nerve in the body, and originates in the lumbar spine. It then runs down through the buttock area and continues along the back of the leg and branches off to the tibial and common fibular (peroneal) nerves down to the foot.

In most cases, when a sciatic nerve is compressed only one side is affected with pain, although the pain may alternate from one side to the other. Occasionally, the pain is felt on both sides of the lower back and legs.

Although sciatica pain can be debilitating, most people who suffer from sciatica can find pain relief with non-surgical treatments such as cold compression, ultrasound therapy and BFST®. It is a condition that usually gets better with time and rest. Treating the cause of the nerve compression is important to prevent sciatica pain from returning.

Causes of Sciatica

Sciatica symptoms are caused by the sciatica nerve being compressed. This compression can occur for a number of reasons in various locations and treatment will depend on the cause.

  • A herniated or slipped disc in the lumbar or sacral spine
  • Strain, inflammation, and swelling of the piriformis muscle (piriformis syndrome)
  • Pregnancy
  • Poor posture
  • Short leg syndrome
  • Wearing high heels
  • Overcompensating for other injuries in the knee (ACL injury), lower leg (shin splints), ankle (sprain) or hip (bursitis)
  • Damage to the vertebrae in the lumbar or sacral spine
  • Disc degeneration in the lumbar or sacral spine
  • Tumor in the spine
  • A sharp blow or injury to the lower back or buttock area causing injury to the pelvis
  • Pinching of a sciatic nerve can cause lower back and hip pain and reach down the leg to the foot.
  • Autoimmune disorders

Symptoms of Sciatica

  • Pain, tingling or numbness that radiates through the lower back, buttocks, and down the back of the leg possibly as far as the foot
  • Pain starts slowly and worsens after standing, sitting, bending backward, walking or sleeping at night
  • Difficulty walking, bending and or sitting
  • Muscle weakness in the hip and/or leg

Treatment

Compression of the sciatic nerve can occur in various locations and the exact cause and location is not always known. Treating the symptoms can be helpful to manage the pain but treating the source of the compression will result in faster sciatica relief. We recommend that you see your doctor for a proper diagnosis and to determine the cause of the compression on the sciatic nerve.

Inferno Wrap® Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy

Blood flow stimulation therapy, or BFST®, should be used over your lumbar region and lower back to improve blood flow and nourish soft tissue. Your body needs a fresh supply of blood to improve the health of your tissue and treat the muscle strain or irritation to relieve the compression of your sciatic nerve.

The Back/Hip Inferno Wrap keeps your muscle tissue as healthy as possible, reducing the chance of sciatica pain returning.

Unfortunately, when you are suffering from sciatica it can be painful to even walk or lift your leg. When you limit movement in your hip the blood flow is reduced, starving your tissue of the necessary oxygen and nutrients.

The trick is to find a way to increase blood flow without causing pain and/or further inflaming the muscle or discs. This is where blood flow stimulation therapy, or BFST®, becomes a powerful tool.

BFST® compliments your body's natural healing process By promoting blood flow while you give your sciatic nerve the rest it needs.

The Back/Hip Inferno Wrap® uses a patented process to generate the same energy that is part of the sun's spectrum of light, the same energy that is necessary to all living things for optimum health. The energy emitted from the Energy Web® stimulates blood flow to your lower back and hip, more than your body would ever be able to generate on it's own, giving your body the boost it needs to keep your spine and lower back muscles as healthy as possible and reduce the risk of irritation, inflammation and herniation. The soothing energy reaches deep into your body to whisk away the toxins and dead cells, and rejuvenate your muscle tissues for improved elasticity.

Freezie Wrap® Cold Therapy

If you are experiencing referred pain above the knee or in your lower leg caused by the compression of your sciatic nerve, cold compression therapy can provide some relief. The cooling sensation along with the compression can help to numb the nerves to help alleviate the pain. However, treatment of the location of the compression is most important to treat the source of this referred pain.

The Back/Hip Freezie Wrap treats pain, swelling and inflammation while reducing tissue damage.

Applying cold compression wherever you are experiencing pain will help. The Back/Hip Freezie Wrap® is versatile and can be used to treat your lower back, hip or leg. It's unique supercharged cooling gel pack, 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.

Treat your sciatica pain with cold compression therapy as needed throughout the day. The Back/Hip Freezie Wrap® can be used to apply cold in a safe, convenient and effective way - and the gel pack is reusable.

Specialized Hip Bursitis Treatment Options

Dear MendMeShop,

I have been using the Freeze Wraps to reduce the inflammation, for which they worked great. Last week was the first time I tried the Infernowrap on my right knee and it seems to help just from one treatment. I plan to use it every night when I get back from work. I used the knee Inferno wrap again last night and put it on the medium power and it's helping tremendously. I'm able to bend my knee better and walk with more stability without leaning too much on my left knee to compensate for the injured knee.
