More Facts About Carpal Tunnel Syndrome


In 2003 the US Department of Labor reported 23 days as the average number of work days missed due to CTS costing over $2 billion a year.


There is little medical evidence yet proving that carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by repetitive movements.


If youre unable to tell the difference between hot and cold with your hand, you might be suffering from a severe case of CTS or some other injury (ie. an impingement or ganglion cyst).


Continually using your wrist while it is injured will lead to a more serious and/or chronic injury.


In chronic cases of carpal tunnel syndrome the muscles at the base of your thumb might atrophy (waste away).


Most doctors wont suggest surgery unless conservative treatment is tried for 6 months.


Wrist arthritis or a wrist fracture can narrow the space in your wrist that might cause carpal tunnel syndrome.


Moving your hand or shaking your wrist can temporarily help to relieve the tingling sensation or swollen feeling.


Its common in the early stages of CTS to feel pain and numbness at night while sleeping.


Not all wrist and finger pain or finger numbness and tingling is carpal tunnel syndrome.


Only 40% of people suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome will continue to feel full pain relief 1 year after a cortisone injection.


Doctors wont normally give someone more than 2 or 3 cortisone injections to reduce pain from CTS.


There is no clinical proof that use of computers, cell phones, PDAs, gaming systems, and other handheld devices will cause CTS.

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.

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

So all in all, your products and personal attention are great.

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

I would recommend the products to anyone.

The knee Inferno Wrap did a lot to help me and actually got me back to walking normally.

Prior to the Inferno, I was limping really bad to the point where I probably should have gotten crutches or
[See Full Review] a wheelchair because of the pain. Though I do walk normally, I still have issues with my knee and in some rare instances. I've just started thinking about doing minor exercises to keep in shape.

I do want to say thank you for the Inferno and what your company has created as a substitute for surgery for me. I was injured in September, and started using the wrap that same month, By the beginning of November I felt so much better it was incredible.

I doubt my knee is completely healed but it is a definite improvement.

Tear of the anterior horn of the lateral meniscus and transverse meniscal ligament.

I first want to say that after 6 full weeks of twice daily treatments, I am experiencing a tremendous improvement to my knee stability.

No more weakness and loss o

Thanks to all.

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.

I've used both the Knee Inferno Wrap and the Freezie Wrap.

The Freezee wrap has been of most help in reducing inflammation and pain.

The doctor discovered a torn meniscus via MRI, and subsequent x-rays show significant arthritis, so it's going to
[See Full Review] be a total knee replacement situation.

I anticipate using your products during recovery after surgery.

Thanks very much.

I am out there shooting the best scores of the season. I hurt my wrist, put you wrist Inferno wrap and the next marking period, 2 weeks, I was back to a 6 handicapper vs the 9 handicapper I was when I was hurt.

I lent it to my director of golf that
[See Full Review] jammed his wrist. He was in serious pain. I gave him my wrist Inferno and in one day he was back to being a scratch golfer.

It's the best therapy and the only one I WILL use from now on. I also have the shoulder Inferno. I had issues and guess what? No more issues! No surgery that was recommended to me because of you guys, period, like we say in NY. Awesome product thank you.

I'm grateful for the Inferno products. After a month or so, I began to feel so much better with my shoulder, leg, and my back.

It's a magnificent healing product. I recommend it to everyone I know. If it weren't for your product, I would have had
[See Full Review] to have surgery and who is to say that would have worked - or made it worse.

Appreciate all your help.

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!!!

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.

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]

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.

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]

I have been using the Inferno & Freezie Wraps since November,2012.

I saw an orthopedic doctor after Thanksgiving and have been going to occupational therapy (3) days per week. I was told by my ortho doctor to continue to use the items that I had
[See Full Review]purchased from you (I brought them in on my initial visit with him).

I am currently using the inferno wrap as soon as I wake up in the morning, then continue to do my daily wrist and arm exercises. I use the freezie wrap when I am finished. While working I use a tennis elbow brace and I am also using it while doing housework or other chores where I am using my arm alot.

My arm is improving slowly as I am working (4) days a week as a chef for 12-14 hours per day.

My ortho doctor told me that it would take some time to heal completely. I don't see him until the end of February (3 months since initial visit).

So far I am seeing improvement in both pain management and flexibility. I believe the combination of therapy sessions and the use of your wrap treatments are the key to a successful treatment plan.

I'll keep you informed of my progress. Thanks again for your help and guidance.

I just wanted to let you know how happy I have been with my wrist wrap.

I broke my leg, the tibia and fibula January 10, 2013. I had a lot of soft tissue damage to my foot since I fell off a pier and landed on gravel with my foot. My tendons ar
[See Full Review]e so tight and at night they wake me up a lot, had a metatarsal lump on the bottom of my foot which gave me issues.

I was going to order the foot pad but the lady advised me to get the wrist wrap since the top of my foot was involved and she said I could probably wrap it around different places and she was so right. I am much better. I have been using it about a month now and I can tell you that I am much better. The energy from the wrap helps my tendons to stretch out and although I am not 100%, I have gone from 50% to 75% in this one month.

I only wish I had found you earlier in my ordeal and I would probably be 100% by now.

I would recommend your product to anyone who is having tendon issues after an injury. Thank you so much
