Dear MendMeShop,

I purchased the Inferno and Freezie because on August 28th my life changed, I was in Florida at the beach taking my last skimboarding run when I heard the dreaded pop and hit from behind. I had in fact after an MRI 2 weeks later ruptured my Achilles Tendon 100%. I was devastated...being 50, an athlete, former track record holder, my life came to a complete standstill. I found your site from an Achilles site with Blogs and I am very grateful. My current condition is nothing short of a miracle. I had surgery two and half weeks ago , surgery was open to repair tendon and was one hour 20 minutes. I was placed in a hard cast with toes down for 1 week, I observed all rules and used crutches 100%. After 1 week cast was removed then I was back in my air cast, I could put absolutely no pressure whatsoever on the repaired leg for 4 days. I received your products and immediately used them. The inferno wrap and freezie are my favorites, I just drove home 200 miles with the inferno wrap on via a 12 volt inverter. Last Saturday night I went out in a flip flop with the injured foot to just get used to having some weight on it. This past week i experimented with different shoes and sneakers and when I attended my second PT session all the swelling and bruising was gone and I had great side to side motion still working on stretching the achilles. Yesterday I drove with sneakers on and walked 1.5 miles on my sons college campus with no crutch, can, etc. Today I wore docksiders and drove home another 200 miles, I am now laying in bed with the Inferno on my left foot which has the intact achilles but it is sore due to disruption of weight from injury, at the same time I have the Freezie on my repaired leg. After reading all the stories on the internet and talking with people as well as knowing of the seriousness of this injury, I believe your products have played a key role to getting me back on my feet and my life headed back to normal 1000 times faster than the average achilles rupture patient. Thank You so much for great products and superior service as well as unprecedented guarantee. I will let you know when I am walking normal without any limp

Dear MendMeShop,

I am elated with the Shoulder Inferno and Freezie Wraps. I purchased. My shoulder is regaining strength, albeit slowly. Until I found your products I was in tremendous throbbing pain from a rotator cuff injury. For three months I used Chiropractors and exercise bands to no avail. The terrible throbbing has subsided and I am once again able to throw the ball with my two German Pointers! If I over do activity, the freeze wrap helps to calm the shoulder down. An hour after that I do the Inferno Wrap.

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.

Dear MendMeShop,

I am a 44 year-old woman in good health. I eat a fresh diet and take high-quality supplements, including MSM, glucosamine, Zyflamend, and all the usual joint-recomended supplements. I injured both knees two years ago while kneeling to tile my family room and entry. Subsequently, a simple twisting squat ripped my left meniscus with a huge bucket tear that required surgery to trim so it wouldn't keep catching and re-tearing. I am not one to undergo surgery unless it is unavoidable, and even after a "simple" scope operation, it took me a full year to get full extension back on that knee, and I doubt I will ever be able to squat again. I run a cleaning business. A couple of months ago an employee had forgotten to return equipment to my van, and I had to mop some hardwood flooring for a client on my hands and knees. That simple ten-minute job put me back out of commission. The kneeling pre-injured the area, and when I stepped back onto my good leg two days later, I felt that familiar burn of a fresh meniscus tear. I was heartsick, dreading another surgery and the attendant expense, pain, and down time. I know from my previous experience that cartilage is hard to heal because of the poor blood supply, especially to the center. I knew it was just a matter of time before I tore it further. (My dad had multiple knee scopes before finally getting a replacement, but I was not going down that path if I could help it!) I got online and researched alternatives that would get me back on my feet. Delighted to discover Mend Me Shop and their professional athletic healing devices, I ordered the Inferno Wrap and Ice Wrap. $400 would be a pittance relative to the $13,000 it costs to repair a torn meniscus (and that doesn't include rehab and lost income). During the week it took the package to arrive, I stayed off my feet as much as possible and iced the injured knee several times a day. My big hope was simply to avoid tearing the cartilage further before the stuff came. (With my surgery knee, I had re-torn it repeatedly before surgery.) The minute that I put that Inferno wrap around my bad knee, I was in love! The penetrating warmth felt amazing. I kept it by my desk and strapped it on when I would sit and work at the computer. And I kept icing the knee. Within a couple weeks I was walking evenly on both legs, if gingerly lest I inadvertently twist or bounce. But I was definitely healing. I didn't miss any work after the first week, though I moved more slowly than usual and occasionally felt that piercing reminder of the tear. I had to lie down and elevate my knee every two hours to get through the day, but it was slowly healing. Four weeks later I was feeling so good, and the day was so sunny, that I went skipping off the front porch and was reminded I have a torn meniscus! And so it goes to this day, some six weeks later: the injury is there, but it is gradually improving. The more I use the therapy devices, the faster it improves. The more I get lazy and feel perfect and neglect them, the more I slow down. But I work a full schedule without breaks and only occasionally am reminded of the injury. By God's grace and with many thanks to Mend Me Shop, I have avoided surgery! Gratefully yours, Debbie Morgan

Dear MendMeShop,

Dear Paul, I wanted to e-mail you and let you know how things are going. In your last e-mail to me you made a very profound statement that I had never heard before. I have been to several doctors over the past 10 years and not any one of them ever told me that snapping hip syndrome was a manifestation of short leg syndrome. I truly think that many of my problems are layers that have had to have been slowly peeled away to find out what the problem is that is causing each and every one of them. I thought about the statement that you made and I applied it. Several years back I had a chiropractor tell me that I had short leg syndrome and that I had fallen arches in my right foot and leg. He ordered me an orthotic and a lift to make up the difference. My foot hurt all the time and my right hip hurt all the time and so I stoppd wearing them. A few years later I discovered that I had a bad right ovary. Once I had a doctor that agreed that it was bad and removed it and all that pain went away I was left with my right foot hurting. I found arch supports that made that better but then I had the bursitus and snapping hip syndrome symptoms. No Doctor knew what to do for me and basically tried to give me pain medication to cover it up. I don't want to cover anything up. I want to find the root of the problem and treat it. So, I got to thinking about your statement. (I know it seems like I am going around this same tree, but I will get there) My thought was that because of the pain I was suffering from my ovary, maybe with that all gone I should try the lifts again and see what happens. I am telling you...that one little statement you made took care of my bursitis and my snapping hip syndrome. I am no longer suffering from any of that. I am sleeping well at night. Thank you for your statement. You just don't know how much that has meant to me. You don't know me, you have never met me but you literally saved the quality of my life. It took me a few days after I read your e-mail to put two and two together so to speak but it was worth trying again. Thank you so much.

What is de Quervains Tenosynovitis
(de Quervain's Syndrome)?

deQuervain's tenosynovitis is the inflammation of the extensor pollicis brevis and abductor pollicis longus.

The extensor pollicis brevis and abductor pollicis longus are tendons that run along the radial side (inside) of the wrist, over the radial styloid process. These tendons control movement of the thumb.

The extensor pollicis brevis and abductor pollicis longus pass through a tight channel, called the first dorsal compartment, which joins the forearm to the thumb. The tendons are encased by sheaths, or a covering, that run through the first dorsal compartment. The sheaths are lined with synovial fluid (synovium) so the tendons can slide easily through them.

De Quervain's tenosynovitis (somtimes also called De Quervain's Syndrome) is the thickening of the sheaths that encase these tendons. This occurs when the tendon sheaths and synovium become irritated and inflamed. When the sheath swells the tendons have difficulties passing through. The swelling may also put pressure on the radial nerve or other nerves in the wrist resulting in pain and/or numbness.

What's the Difference Between de Quervain's Tendonitis, Tendonosis and Tenosynovitis?

Tendonitis (sometimes spelled tendinitis and pronounced 'tendinitus') is a condition where your tendon is irritated or inflammed.

Tendonitis is inflammation of a tendon caused by excessive strain.

Usually this irritation, swelling and inflammation happens because of some kind of damage or micro-tearing to the tendon. This can happen from overuse of the tendon or an accident of some kind.

Thumb tendonitis (extensor pollicis brevis tendonitis and/or abductor pollicis longus tendonitis) can also cause de Quervain's syndrome and trigger symptoms of this condition. Basically any injury placing pressure on the radial nerve (whether the injury is tendonitis, tendonosis or tenosynovitis) can cause you pain, swelling and inflammation in your thumb.

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 swell up to take up space in your carpal tunnel and squeeze on the median nerve.

It's possible for you to have tendonitis / tendinosis AND tenosynovitis at the same time creating a more complicated de Quervain's injury. This is why the injury can be called a syndrome instead of tendonitis or tenosynovitis - 'syndrome' usually means you have a complex injury in your tendons AND the sheath.

What Causes de Quervain's Tenosynovitis?

deQuervain's syndrome can be caused by frequent twisting, grasping and clenching.

De Quervain's syndrome is caused by repetitive overuse or hyperextension of the tendons. Frequent twisting, grasping, clenching, pinching or wringing can irritate the synovium and sheath causing swelling and inflammation.

Mothers with infants and day care workers who frequently lift babies are most commonly affected by de Quervain's tenosynovitis. However, it may also be triggered by a direct blow to the area around the radial styloid process.

Due to the cause of de Quervain's tenosynovitis, it is also referred to as mommy thumb and mother's wrist, as well as, de Quervain's disease, radial styloid tenosynovitis, de Quervain's syndrome or washerwoman's sprain.

What are the Symptoms of de Quervain's Syndrome?

  • Pain at the base of the thumb that increases when twisting the wrist or grabbing an object
  • Swelling over the thumb side of the wrist - a fluid filled cyst may form in the area
  • Moving the wrist and/or thumb, grasping, or pinching is difficult
  • A catching sensation when you move your thumb may also occur but is not always present
  • Numbness on the thumb and back of the index finger caused the irritation of the radial nerve
  • Squeaking as the tendon tries to move through the sheath

How Do You Diagnose de Quervain's Syndrome?

Finkelstein's Test is used to diagnos de Quervain's Tendinitis (de Quervain's Syndrome).

If you are experiencing wrist pain, a common test used to diagnose if it is de Quervain's tenosynovitis is the Finkelstein Test. The doctor will ask you to make a fist around the thumb of your sore wrist and turn your wrist so the thumb in on top. With your wrist relaxed, the doctor will push down on your fist, bending the wrist down. If pain is felt along the side of the wrist and base of the thumb it is a positive indicator of de Quervain's syndrome.

Do You Need Surgery to Heal de Quervain's Syndrome?

Surgery is not usually necessary, and is typically the option of last resort. Treating de Quervain's syndrome with home therapies such as cold compression, and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy can reduce the inflammation and swelling allowing for smooth movement of your tendons once again. If surgery is required, use of these therapies following the procedure will provide optimal healing of the tendon tissue and surrounding area. This will improve your range of motion in the thumb and reduce the risk of the condition returning.

A troublesome complication of surgery for de Quervains tenosynovitis is a painful neuroma of the radial nerve as well as increased presence of scar tissue due to the invasive nature of surgery.

To reduce the chance surgery will be require, it is important to treat de Quervain's tenosynovitis as soon as possible, as any activity or strain you put on your thumb can re-injure it further. Though the pain, discomfort, and inconvenience of de Quervain's syndrome can be overwhelming, it is possible to overcome it.


Treating de Quervain's Syndrome -
What You Can Do!

The good news is that most cases of de Quervain's syndrome will heal with simple home conservative treatments and surgery is often not needed!

Step 1 - Reduce Regular Activities & Rest Your Hand
Our Freezie Wraps provide consistent cold compression ideal for acute tendonitis injuries.

Allowing your hand to rest is always recommended following injury. Avoid all activities that may have caused the injury or irritation and begin cold compression treatments as soon as possible. Immediate and continuous treatment with cold compression will reduce the swelling in the base of your thumb.

When you have your pain, swelling and inflammation under control you can actually start to apply treatments with tools that will encourage healing in your hand. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy will treat scar tissue and promote blood flow to heal your damaged soft tissue faster and more completely than other methods available. Using these conservative treatment tools can get you back to a life without pain and eliminate any further risk of re-injury.


Step 2 - Reduce Pain & Swelling with Cold Compression
When should you use hot or cold for injuries?

The 2nd step for conservative treatment of your de Quervain's injury 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 wrist 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, chronic pain from injury and after any re-injury.

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 available.

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.

Use a Wrist Freezie Wrap for consistent cold compression to soothe your pain, swelling and inflammation.

A Wrist Freezie Wrap® allows you to treat your thumb in an effective and convenient way. Our Freezie Wraps® will wrap around your wrist and hand keeping the cold right over your de Quervain's 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! The cushioned gel will wrap around your wrist and hand and it won't budge for the entire treatment period. You'll no longer have to deal with annoying pooling around your wrist 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.

 

When should you use hot or cold for injuries?

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 the soft tissue in your hand, you also limit the amount of healing that needs to occur. This is a very important step to heal de Quervain injuries faster and with less pain! This is why you need to treat your pain right after your thumb's hurt, when you notice pain / swelling / inflammation, or directly after a re-injury. Applying a Wrist 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 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 Freezie Wrap® can get the swelling / inflammation in your hand and wrist under control! After you get rid of the swelling for good you can start dealing with your injury and pain head on.


Use a Cold Compression Wrist Freezie Wrap®:

  • 24 to 72 hours after your initial injury or when you first notice pain and swelling to stop cellular damage, relieve pain, and decrease swelling.
  • After exercise, workouts or activity of any kind to prevent re-injury.
  • Before and after surgery during rehabilitation to control pre and post-surgery pain and swelling.
  • Anytime you feel your thumb starting to get tender, painful or swollen again.
  • Anytime you have swelling, sharp throbbing pain or inflammation.
  • Any other situation where you need to draw the pain and inflammation out of your injury.
 


Step 3 - Improve Circulation, Soften Scar Tissue & Prevent Re-Injury with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy

After the inflammation in your thumb has been reduced, providing extra blood flow and strengthening the tissue in your hand is recommended.

healing your carpal tunnel syndrome

Promoting blood flow to your thumb 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 any soft tissue injury will be delayed... sometimes for a very long period of time.

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

So what do you do when you need to increase blood flow, but you can't move without re-injuring your soft tissue?

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

Use a Wrist Inferno Wrap to increase blood flow and stimulate tissue growth.

The only way to get BFST® is through use of a Wrist Inferno Wrap®. The Wrist Inferno Wrap® is the only treatment method that improves blood flow and circulation on a deep tissue level. Other methods of warming up 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 the tissue in your wrist 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 you might even get burned!

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 the damaged tissue in your wrist by increasing the blood flow right in your soft tissue.

When should you use hot or cold for injuries?
  • When treating 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.

Our Wrist Inferno Wrap® is made from medical-grade material - this should be as important to you as it's 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 - biocompatibility 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 the BFST® Wrist Inferno Wrap®:

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

Continue the healing process by resting your hand. Limit the activities that may be aggravate your de Quervain's injury. Without proper rest and limitation on activities, being active as if your thumb is healthy can lead to re-injury. Our hands give us the ability to perform both large and small complex motor skills - like picking up a heavy object or doing fine, detailed work. We often need both of these skills to perform everyday tasks like working on a computer, cleaning, putting away groceries, gardening, or playing sports. To get back to doing the things you love you need to give your body proper care and attention. Why risk having to limit or give up your favorite weekend activity, your exercise routine, or even your job due to a de Quervain's injury?

Dear MendMeShop,

I'm doing well with my Inferno Wraps. I have one for my foot, leg, back, and elbow. My elbow IS gradually getting better. The foot/ankle/Achilles, leg, and back/hip are helping a lot. I have a complex soft tissue injury from a fall where my foot was asleep and I did not know it ... UNTIL I fell on the floor, having twisted (running on my foot that turned over) my ankle, knee, and hip. I have healed well from the original injury (now 4 years ago) with lots of chiropractic and massage therapy and lots of rehab. One of my rehabs now is "Ballroom Dancing" with a teacher who understands injuries. I call it "Physio-dance therapy for rehabilitation." I've done this for the last 8 months and have gotten incredibly stronger and improved coordination and balance. But, 3 weeks ago I "strained" my Achilles/calf/ankle/foot muscles and tendons. I purchased the Inferno Wraps to help expedite my healing, which they HAVE DONE and I've only used them 2 weeks now. I am using them 2 times per day, every day.
