Dear MendMeShop,

Thank you for spending time answering my questions and concerns on the Knee Inferno Wrap and wrist products and how to use them. I appreciate that, and I am impressed with your company's personal availability to personally talk with customers. In a fast pace, seemingly no care, 'all out for my benefit' mentality in our society it is refreshing to know I can go on-line and there are people doing business who do care for their product and the people buying them.
I went on-line to find help in treating my very painful meniscus and other issues Arthroscopic surgery on my right knee, that were more severe that my left knee issues had been, so I could find help in speeding up my recovery and get back on my feet again. Having had the same surgery on my left knee only 6 months prior, I was not able to recover as fast as my left knee had not yet fully recovered enough to take the full load of both knees. The Dr. said nothing about recovery only that I could not even put toe weight on my right knee for 4 weeks. So, with my left knee still in recovery this made life extremely difficult. So much so, I had to go to a wheel chair so I would not ruin either of my knees or my back which is suffering from degenerative discs. My knee issues stem from aging and over-use over the years. They are just wearing out.
I am an active person and was not going to consign myself to a wheel chair for the rest of my life. I had no access to physical therapy treatments in my personal situation. So, I took the bull by the horns and got busy finding out what I could do to help myself recover faster and get back in action physically. And I found your company.
I started my personal quest on Internet, which is all I was able to do physically at the time, and found your company, MendMeShop.com. I read all your info and was impressed with what I read and felt comfortable that you were genuine and were out to help me fully recover. The fully guaranteed refund was a plus to me so that I would not spend a lot lf money for something that I would be stuck with and as well did me no good.
You also had a personal way to contact your company to discuss any concerns I might have in using it. You also had expedited mailing so that I could have your product in a few days so I could get started in my recovery. I was willing to pay the extra mailing cost to get the product faster. You really came through on your end and I had my Inferno Knee Wrap in just a few days. That really firmed up to me that you back up your claims about your product and that you truly cared about me and so I could get onto faster recovery sooner.
After receiving the Inferno Knee Wrap, I was having personal issues in how often to use the Knee Wrap and so I called you to help me with this. I felt that the knee wrap was helping me, but I was finding that I could not use it to the fullest degree the instructions mentioned. You helped me and told me to call you back. From your recommendations, I started experimenting on my own to see what would work for me and I found a workable solution for me personally. Each person is unique and what works for one person may not work for another. So, I recommend not giving up and returning this product until you find what works for you.
Because my knee issues are so severe, it will take longer than I want it to, but I am plugging away and using the Inferno Knee Wrap along with stationery bike exercise and I am seeing progress each day.
Thank you for being there when I needed help in recovery of Arthroscopic Knee Surgery. I appreciate you and your company.

More Tendon Facts:

Inferno Wrap treatments can speed tendonitis recovery significantly.


A fully ruptured Tendon REQUIRES surgery. It will not heal on its own.


Except for a fully ruptured tendon, Tendonitis can almost always be cured without surgery.


Left untreated, tendonitis can be extremely debilitating and lead to life long complications.


Continually using your Tendon while it is injured will lead to a worse injury.

Dear MendMeShop,

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 order 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.

What is Biceps Tendonitis?

Bicep tendonitis, causing pain in the front of you shoulder

The biceps tendons are strong, cord-like structures that connect the upper end of the biceps muscle to the bones in the shoulder. The biceps tendons and muscle, help you to bend your elbow and rotate your arm. They also keep your shoulder stable and your arm centered in your shoulder socket.

There are two biceps tendons located on the front side of your upper arm and shoulder. The long head biceps tendon attaches to the top of the shoulder socket (glenoid). The short head of the biceps tendon attaches to a bump on the shoulder blade called the coracoid process. On the other end of your bicep there 1 tendon that attaches your muscle to the radius bone at the elbow.

What are the symptoms of Biceps Tendonitis?

If you are suffering from bicep tendonitis you will have pain in the front of your shoulder and some tenderness / weakness in your bicep muscle. Pain will increase as you lift your arm overhead, raise your arm in a throwing motion, or pull on something with your arm. You may have pain and a deep achy-ness in the shoulder that moves down the front of your arm, and in some cases, radiate down to the hand. Sometimes snapping can be heard or felt in the shoulder.

Bicep tendonitis, pain may keep you awake at night, Freezie Wrap can help

Pain from biceps tendonitis may worsen at night, especially if you sleep on the arm that has been affected with the biceps tendonitis.

What's the Difference Between Bicep Tendonitis, Tendinosis and Tenosynovitis?

Tendinosis is basically like tendonitis but it's not caused by an injury. Tendinosis is caused by chronic degeneration (wearing away) of tendon fibers over time. This is a natural thing that happens to our tissue as we age.

Where tendonitis is damage or micro-tearing to your tendon, Tenosynovitis is damage or micro-tearing to the sheath covering your tendon. This sheath is a protective lining for your tendon and is made up of synovium. If this sheath is injured it can also become irritated resulting in similar symptoms as tendonitis (pain, swelling and inflammation).

It's possible for you to have tendonitis / tendinosis AND Tenosynovitis at the same time creating a more complicated bicep tendonitis injury.

What causes of Biceps Tendonitis?
Bicep tendonitis, is caused by overusing the soft tissue in your shoulder and arm

Biceps Tendonitis is caused by overuse of the shoulder, arm muscles and tendons. Repetitive actions common in athletes or workers who use frequent overhead arm movements such as throwing a ball, swinging a racket, swimming, martial arts, lifting weights, dusting high shelves, painting, or completing manual labor tasks. Biceps Tendonitis can also occur because of a sudden, serious injury to the tendon.

Anyone can suffer from biceps tendinitis, but it's most common in adults due to degeneration of tissue as we age. Over time the tendons in the arm will wear down resulting in something called degeneration. This is where the fibers in your tendons will become weaker - it's just a natural process that happens as we age.

Do You Really have Biceps Tendonitis?

Your shoulder and arm connect into one ball-and-socket joint, involving 3 bones, and a large number of muscles, tendons, ligaments, connective tissues and synovial fluid. Biceps tendonitis usually occurs along with other shoulder related problems:

  • Biceps tendon tear, then deformity of the arm (a "Popeye" bulge in the upper arm)
  • Chronic shoulder instability
  • Biceps Tenosynovitis, inflammation of the tendon sheath
  • Arthritis of the shoulder joint, Osteoarthritis or Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Tendinosis of the biceps tendon, caused by degeneration of the tendon from athletics requiring overhead motion or from the normal aging process
  • shoulder pain can be caused by a damaged rotator cuff
  • Rotator cuff tear, a group of 4 tendons located at the shoulder acting as a 'cuff' to connect your humerus bone to the rotator cuff muscles. Acute trauma results from a sudden injury such as falling onto an outstretched arm, which can bruise, strain or tear your rotator cuff tendon(s) or muscle(s) at any age. Excessive force exerted by lifting or pulling something too heavy, pushing off an object vigorously with your arm, or making a forceful and abrupt forward throwing or overhead action, can also severely damage and tear your rotator cuff.
  • Tears in the shoulder joint (Slap tear or glenoid labrum tear). There are 3 bones in the shoulder blade (scapula), the collarbone (clavicle), and the upper arm bone (humerus). Injuries to the tissue rim surrounding the shoulder socket(s) can occur from acute trauma or repetitive shoulder motion or injury. Falling on an outstretched arm, a direct blow to the shoulder, a sudden pull (ie. trying to lift a heavy object), or a violent overhead reach (ie. trying to stop a fall or slide) can cause a slap tear or labrum tear injury.
  • Shoulder Bursitis is often due to overuse or overhead repetitive actions. It can also be a result of something as simple as an awkward fall or trying to lift something up high with a weakened shoulder. When pressure or friction is too great, excess fluid can build up in the bursa sac causing swelling and inflammation. Moving the shoulder becomes very painful and movement can be difficult. Any actions that put pressure on the inflamed bursa can increase irritation and cause further inflammation and pain. Symptoms of shoulder bursitis are pain, limited range of motion, weakness, difficulties sleeping, swelling and tenderness, and possibly a fever if the bursa is infected (septic shoulder bursitis).
  • Calcific tendinitis A chemical reaction with other tissues in the body and calcium builds-up in the tendons. More common condition with women and the age ranges between 30 and 50. This is not a sport / activity related injury. It is known as a natural process than can occur in some people and not in others. The shoulder and rotator cuff are the typical location of calcific tendinitis - it is also know as calcific tendinopathy. Pain and stiffness that often comes back but usually last one to two months.

  • Impingement Syndrome happens when the tendons in your shoulder get caught by the bones in your shoulder. Over time if left untreated impingement syndrome can result in shoulder tendonitis, bursitis and can cause tearing in your rotator cuff tendons. Like shoulder tendonitis, impingement syndrome can happen from repeated overhead activity or movement like painting, lifting, swimming and any other overhead sports. There are generally 3 stages in impingement syndrome: Stage 1 (pain, swelling and inflammation in the rotator cuff tendons), Stage 2 (rotator cuff tendonitis) and Stage 3 (tendon tissue catching under your bone resulting in immobility and loss of function in your shoulder). Each stage will generally affect a different age group, which is why this condition is thought to progress over time. Stage 1 usually affects individuals younger than 25 years old, Stage 2 affects individuals between the ages of 25 and 40, and Stage 3 affects individuals 40+ (reference: 1).
  • shoulder pain can be caused by a deep ligament and frozen shoulder injury
  • Frozen shoulder (also known as "adhesive capsulitis") is signified by pain and stiffness in the shoulder joint, limited range of motion and pain while sleeping. This is a condition that commonly occurs in older athletes. Frozen shoulder is 5x more common in people with diabetes, though the reason for this is unknown. It's possible that frozen shoulder will happen as a result of a previous injury (like shoulder tendonitis), but it can also happen for no apparent reason or may be triggered by a mild injury in the shoulder area. There are 3 phases to this condition: "Freezing" (general pain, swelling and inflammation), "Frozen" (stiffness in your shoulder) and "Thawing" (recovery as pain eases and most of the movement returns). This process will take some time to get through, and can sometimes take as long as 2 or more years to complete.
  • Diseases that cause inflammation of the shoulder joint lining - like Synovitis, Gout and Pseudo-gout.
How Do I Diagnose Biceps Tendonitis?

Visiting your doctor when you have arm pain is always recommended, as there are many possible issues that can happen within the arm and shoulder joint.

Shop for Freezie Wraps at the AidYourTendon Online Store

To begin with, your doctor will gather a medical history about you and your current condition and symptoms. They will ask about the intensity of your pain, how long your symptoms usually last and the limitations you're experiencing. Details about when it started and whether or not you have ever had treatments for this or a similar condition in the past are very helpful in assessing your shoulder injury.

Your doctor will also look and feel the bones and soft tissue in both your shoulder and arm to find any differences between you injured arm/shoulder and your healthy arm/shoulder. This will help them to feel any abnormalities in and around your shoulder - like mild or severe inflammation, bone deformities, atrophied muscles (muscles that have wasted away due to injury), redness and/or warmth on the skin.

Your doctor might also perform one of the following physical tests;

The Yergason's test can help to determine if you have bicep tendonitis

Speed's test: Your doctor will press down on your arm as you hold it out with your elbow slightly bent and palm up.

Yergason's test: Your doctor will grip your hand and apply pressure on your arm while you bend your elbow 90 degrees (at a right angle).

For both tests pain in a specific area of the shoulder during will let the doctor know that you have biceps tendinitis.

Sometimes, one set of symptoms can result in multiple diagnoses. An X-ray, CT scan, MRI or visual ultrasound is often needed in order to diagnose if the area is out of alignment or the extent of the soft tissue damage.

It's important to have a proper diagnosis from a doctor or some other medical professional to determine the cause of your symptoms. This way the right treatment can be used to treat the condition and relieve your pain.

Cortisone injections can be harmful to tendonitis injuries
Non-Surgical Treatment for Biceps (Shoulder) Tendonitis

In most cases, your Doctor will start with non-surgical treatments options. Some of the options your doctor may recommend include drugs or medications like NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) to manage pain and inflammation. Alternative medications like cortisone injections are advised with caution for any type of tendon condition. This is because there is increased risk of rupture of the tendon following a cortisone injection.

"Medical evidence shows that cortisone shots can damage the surrounding tissue, fray the tendon, and even trigger a rupture. Most side effects are temporary, but skin weakening (atrophy) and lightening of the skin (depigmentation) can be permanent." (reference: American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons)

 

Biceps Tendonitis Treatment -
What You Can Do!

The good news is that most cases of biceps tendonitis will heal with simple home conservative treatments and surgery is often not needed!

Step 1 - Reduce Pain and Swelling with Cold Compression

The first step for conservative treatment of your biceps tendinitis is to reduce the swelling to "open up" the area for more blood flow. Anyone in the health-care business knows that your blood supplies the oxygen and much needed nutrients required to heal biceps tendinitis injuries. This is why for years, doctors, trainers, and other medical professionals have recommended RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) to treat the pain and swelling of fresh injuries, chronic pain, and after any re-injury.

When should you use hot or cold for injuries?

Although RICE can help to treat these symptoms, ice and freezer gel packs reach temperatures so low they can cause cryoburn, an ice burn on your skin. The problem is, up until now there hasn't been any other option to treat painful conditions and injuries, so ice and blue gel packs (full of anti-freeze and chemicals) have been the only choice up until now.

Fortunately you no longer have to settle for these ice cold methods that are uncomfortably cold against your skin, provide short term relief, cause ice burns, numb your skin and underlying tissue beyond feeling so you don't even notice the ice burn until it's too late and pool around your injury putting the cold everywhere except for where you need it most.

A Shoulder Freezie Wrap® allows you to treat your biceps injury in an effective and convenient way. Our Freezie Wraps® will fit your shoulder keeping the cold right over your biceps injury for the entire length of your treatment. Our food-grade, non-toxic gel packs can be chilled in the fridge or freezer to tailor the amount of cold that you need for your injury. It doesn't matter how you cool it down, because our gel packs are chock full of gel that's designed to cool down into millions of tiny snowflakes. This method of cooling means our gel packs aren't icy-cold and stay flexible even right out of the freezer! The cushioned gel will wrap around your shoulder and it won't budge for the entire treatment period. You'll no longer have to deal with annoying pooling around your shoulder or have to hold a hard block of ice on your injury!

Cold Compression Therapy slows nerve and cell function - reducing the swelling that blocks blood vessels from doing their job.

 
Reduce your pain from your chronic tendon strain

This is important because once blood vessels are blocked or damaged, they can no longer carry oxygenated blood through the tissue and tissue cells begin to break-down. Without cold compression therapy cellular break-down and tissue damage continues as the cells don't get the oxygen they need to survive. By limiting the amount of damage done to your biceps tendon, you also limit the amount of healing that needs to occur. This is a very important step to heal tendon injuries faster and with less pain! This is why you need to treat your shoulder / arm pain right after it's hurt, when you notice pain / swelling / inflammation, or directly after a re-injury. Applying a Freezie Wrap® right away will stop the damage immediately and unblock your blood vessels to let your body's natural blood flow in to start healing the tissue.

Cold Compression Therapy = the Shoulder Freezie Wrap®

 

It'll seem weird for you to read this, but there are a LOT of people out there that don't understand how fast cold compression with a Shoulder Freezie Wrap® can get the swelling / inflammation in your biceps under control! After you get rid of the swelling for good you can start dealing with your shoulder injury and pain head on.

Use a Cold Compression Shoulder Freezie Wrap®:

  • 24 to 72 hours after your initial tendon injury or when you first notice pain and swelling in your shoulder and arm to stop cellular damage, relieve pain, and decrease swelling.
  • After exercise, workouts or activity of any kind to prevent re-injury of your biceps tendinitis.
  • Before and after surgery during rehabilitation to control pre and post-surgery pain and swelling.
  • Anytime you feel your shoulder or arm have been over-extended, over-worked, twisted, strained or sprained causing pain and swelling.
  • Anytime you have swelling, sharp throbbing pain or inflammation in the tendons in your shoulder / arm.
  • Any other situation where you need to draw the pain and inflammation out of your arm and shoulder.
 

Step 2 - Improve Circulation, Soften Scar Tissue & Prevent Re-Injury with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy
tendinitis injuries heal faster with an Inferno Wrap

After the inflammation around your injured tendon has been reduced, you need to provide extra blood flow to strengthen your tendon tissue.

Promoting blood flow to your biceps tendinitis to help your body heal itself is a concept that has been utilized for centuries. Oxygen and nutrients, carried within the blood, are critical for the body to heal itself. Without proper blood flow, your recovery from biceps tendinitis will be delayed... sometimes for a very long period of time.

Even though the concept is simple, improving blood flow to your biceps tendon while it's injured can be difficult. Traditional methods require your arm to move in order to promote blood flow - but that same motion that promotes blood flow can also make your pain and tendonitis much worse. Relying on movement alone to increase blood flow puts you in danger of re-injuring your biceps

So what do you do when you need to increase blood flow, but you can't move your arm or shoulder without re-injuring your tendon?

Using Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®), will help with your recovery and heal your tendon more completely. BFST® increases the amount of blood that flows naturally to your soft tissue to nourish your tendons, improving elasticity and speed up the healing process. This increased Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy to your biceps tendon(s) is greatly needed.

healing your bicep injury

The only way to get BFST® is through use of an Inferno Wrap®. The Inferno Wrap® is the only treatment method that improves blood flow and circulation on a deep tissue level. Other methods of warming / heating tissue (hot water bottles, hot baths, etc) will only ever increase blood flow on a surface / skin level. These methods need a LOT of time to even reach your tendon on a deep tissue level. And even if you were to use them this long your skin would heat up to an uncomfortable level and may even burn you.

The best source of heat treatment is from a product where you don't even feel that much heat. When you don't feel the heat, it means the therapy is working in your deep soft tissue which is really where you need it. It's kind of like how your heart works in your body. You can't "feel" your heart pumping blood all around your body to your arms and legs. You can't even hear your own heartbeat without listening very closely. This is exactly how deep tissue BFST® works too! You're not supposed to "feel" a lot of heat because the heat isn't treating your skin, it's treating your bicep increasing the blood flow right in your tendon tissue.

  • When treating biceps tendonitis (shoulder / arm tendonitis) or any soft tissue injury, an effective therapy will increase blood flow to the injury while the joint is immobile.
  • This increase in blood flow will accelerate the body's own ability to heal itself.
  • The Inferno Wrap® is the most highly effective blood flow stimulation device that you will find on the market that is approved by the FDA for use in the home or hospital.
Shop for Inferno Wraps at the AidYourTendon Online Store

Our Inferno Wrap® is made from medical-grade material - this should be as important to you as it is to us! Other products that are sold in stores are considered "consumer goods" meaning the material only needs to be as good as a sweater that you wear. Clothing articles like this don't need to meet high standards of production or materials and may include materials that irritate your skin.

Since our wraps are medical-grade products registered with the FDA, they are of a higher quality and need to meet way more standards for manufacturing (ISO 10993 - bio-compatibility testing). This makes our wraps the safest product for heating treatment. Our manufacturer has spent years perfecting the wrap design to make sure you get the treatment you deserve!

Use a BFST Shoulder Inferno Wrap®:

  • After swelling and inflammation have been reduced with cold compression.
  • Before exercise or workouts to warm up the tendons in your biceps to prevent re-injury.
  • Before and after surgery during rehabilitation to warm up your tissues before physical therapy exercising or stretching.
  • Anytime you feel the tendons in your arm have stiffened up, are tight and your mobility is reduced causing you more pain.
  • Anytime you have sore or aching tissue in your arm and shoulder.
  • Any other situation where you need to increase blood flow to your biceps tendonitis injury to relax your tendon, relieve pain, prevent re-injury and enhance flexibility of your tissue.
 

Use These Conservative Treatment Tools
to Deal with Scar Tissue

scar tissue restricts tissue fibers

It's important to rest any soft tissue injury because our natural healing process takes time to heal completely. If you don't rest your tendon, your acute tendinitis can quickly turn into a chronic tendinitis injury. To repair our damaged tendon tissue quickly, our bodies will use scar tissue to fill in the tears in the tendon. If you need to rest for an extended period of time and avoid certain activities that make your pain worse, you'll be more likely to develop massive amounts of this scar tissue as a temporary healing measure.

Scar tissue may plague you for weeks, months and maybe even years, depending on your level of activity and the amount of conservative treatments you have done during your rehabilitation. Scar tissue is a major problem, especially when it comes to re-injury of your tendon. When dealing with scar tissue it's always important to:

  • listen well to your physician and if conservative treatments are recommended, remember to stick to your (daily) treatment plan using these therapies.
  • frequent use of the Freezie Wrap® will help reduce the swelling very quickly. Much of the pain you feel will be from the swelling, and you'd be surprised how fast the pain drops off once the swelling is down.
  • Inferno Wrap® is a safe, electromagnetic energy device that will help reduce scar tissue and increase blood flow to the area (thereby accelerating the body's own healing process).
  • when applied before stretching, the Inferno Wrap® will help flush the area with fresh blood. This will help improve your range of motion and prevent re-injury.

It may seem hard to believe, but our Freezie Wraps® and Inferno Wraps® will assist you in recovering from your injury faster and reduce the chance suffering from degeneration conditions (like arthritis or tendinosis) by maximizing blood flow where it's needed most and reducing swelling / inflammation induced pain.

Prevention and Promotion of Lifelong Health

Tendon Injury Facts:

When the tendon gets inflamed it is known as tendonitis, and when the tendons are chronically overused, it may lead to microscopic tears in the collagen matrix and causes a gradual weakening of the tissues.


Achilles tendonitis is a common injury among runners, as the Achilles tendon is responsible for helping you lift off the ground with each stride.


As computers become ever more important elements of the work place and everyday life, incidents of wrist tendonitis are on the rise.


Oral Medications can mask the pain but do not aid in the healing of tendonitis. Anti-inflammatories and pain killers can mask the pain and indirectly cause tendonitis to worsen.


Ice and Compression treatments are the easiest and most effective treatments for tendonitis.

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.

Dear MendMeShop,

Over the past eight months I have been suffering from shoulder and arm pain. I just kept thinking that the pain would go away on its own. When I reached the point where I was unable to raise my arm over my head without assistance and forget about putting my arm behind my back. I decided that a trip to the doctor was due. She ruled out that I had an injury to the Rotator Cuff itself and determined that I had a soft tissue injury. Due to repetitive movement and heavy lifting. She suggested that I try physical therapy. With my work schedule and family obligations I knew that was going to be very difficult and I wanted something that I could fit into my schedule. So I began doing research on the internet for alternative treatments and exercises. That's when I found your product on the internet. I was somewhat skeptical as to rather it would perform as stated, but decided to give it a try. It was stated that it could take up to three weeks to feel results. BUT I am here to say that for myself it has done better. I have been using the Freezie Wrap for a week and have already felt some improvement. I can now raise my arm to just about shoulder height unassisted, and can now almost get my finger tips back behind my back. I make a point of using Freeze Wrap as soon as I get home from work to relieve the stress to my muscles from work and to keep the inflammation down. Now that I have gotten some of the inflammation gone I intend to incorporate the Inferno Wrap treatment to my regiment to just before going bed to aid the healing process and aid in a better night's sleep.

Dear MendMeShop,

I spent 7 years in the gym walking one hour and working out. I lost 85 pounds in about 2 years with a lot of hard work and dedication. After I left the gym in 2008 due to it closing I started having problems about a year later. I recently had surgery on my left shoulder on Jan 4th of this year to shave down the bone to leave enough space for my shoulder joint to work. It seemed to be healing slowly, until I probably reinjured it trying to cut down a small tree. I went back to my Orthopedic Surgeon for my follow up and had to have a cortizone shot in June so I could be painfree while on a long awaited vacation. The shot lasted until September and had another shot October 26 with a warning from the Dr that if I couldn't get any better through therapy by Jan 6 2011 I would have to have the full surgery with my tendons and muscles sewn up to the top of my Rotator Cuff. I told him I don't want to go through the pain again, since I can't take pain medication due to my daily med I have to take for PTSD and can't take them both at the same time. So I did some research for the last 2 months and kept coming up with the MendMeShop Left Shoulder Inferno Wrap. I printed all the material and showed it to my OS and he said to try it if I think it will help me. I received it in 2 days last Friday and was out of town overnight.So I didn't get to try it until Saturday night. I tried it wrapped over a sweater with a thermal shirt underneath and the heat went right through and felt like I was at the physical therapist. The next day I did a few 60 minute sessions and I could feel my muscles ache a little bit, but NO PAIN praise God !!! I was buying a large tube of Extra Strength Muscle Rub with 16 % Menthol once a week to bear the pain along with 800 ML of Ibuprofen.Today is Thursday and I haven't had to put any rub on my shoulder since coming home Saturday night. This Inferno Wrap is incredible and is worth every penny. I am on Disability so I can't afford to waste a penny, but this purchase is becoming a lifesaver for me. Sometimes I just unplug from the charger, tuck the little 8 inch connector, then I tighten the wrap to make it a compression support and the heat stays in it for hours and allows me to be able to function a lot less painful since I am left handed also. If I could give it a 10 star rating instead of a 5 star I would. I will keep you all up to date a few times a week as I progress, along with any replies I might receive. Sun Nov 14, 2010 2:51 pm
