Dear MendMeShop,

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 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.

Diagnosing Adhesive Capsulitis/Frozen Shoulder/Locked Shoulder

Diagnosis is the key to help you healing correctly.

To help your doctor or orthopedic surgeon achieve a proper diagnosis, he/she will begin with a medical history about you, your current condition and symptoms. He/she will inquire about the intensity of your present pain, the duration of your symptoms and the limitations you are experiencing. Details about what instigated the problem, 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 injury.

A physical examination will be performed to determine if you have any signs of adhesive capsulitis or other shoulder injury. Your doctor will visually assess and press on the bones and soft tissue in both your shoulders to evaluate sameness (symmetry) and recognize differences. This will identify any abnormalities, such as mild or severe inflammation, tenderness, fluid, bone or tissue deformity, weakened muscles, redness and/or warmth on the skin. He/she may ask you to complete a series of arm movements, such as raising your arms to the front, back and side, to measure your range of motion and see what causes pain and tightness.

Some of these will be performed by you and others will be performed by the doctor. Generally you will not be able to move your arm in any direction at all (or just slightly) if you have adhesive capsulitis ­ whether you try to move it or your doctor tries to move it. If you have movement when your doctor moves your arm, you may be tested for other shoulder conditions.

Most Common Shoulder Diagnostic Tests:

Diagnostic tests will often help to obtain more detailed information about your shoulder condition.

Shoulder xray

X-rays provide an image of the overall structure of the shoulder, and are helpful in identifying abnormal bone shapes and/or spurs, arthritis, or calcific tendonitis.

Shoulder MRI

MRIs or CT scans will provide more detailed information and will help to evaluate soft tissue (muscle, tendons, ligaments, connective tissue) injuries such as fluid in the shoulder, tendonitis and/or tears.

Arthrogram

Arthrogram contrasts are special x-rays that show details of the shoulder capsule, such as a decrease in size (in a normal shoulder the capsule is rounded, but in a frozen shoulder the capsule is squat, square and contracted).

Blood testing can be done if the doctor suspects the primary reason for your frozen shoulder is a result of a systemic disorder

In addition to using Freezie Wraps® for swelling and pain minimization, we also recommend Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™, another innovative pain relief device from MendMeShop - this technology uses harmless electromagnetic energy to gently heat and increase blood flow to the treated area.

REMEMBER: If your shoulder is injured and you continue to strain it through exercise, rigid and solid scar tissue will replace the soft tissues elasticity. This will cause the soft tissue to ALWAYS hurt, during ANY exercise. This condition is essentially incurable, so if you're suffering from a shoulder injury, it's important to treat it and heal as fast as possible.

Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™

During normal use, activity promotes blood flow through our body. Our body responds to the activity by sending oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the muscles, joints and tissue. When we are at rest, the blood flow to your shoulder is greatly reduced. But, when your shoulder is injured, it really needs the blood flow to promote the healing process. Since you can't work your shoulder without danger of further injury, you need to stimulate the blood flow another way. Our innovative Inferno Wraps give you the best Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™ available. Inferno creates special energy waves that stimulate blood flow by penetrating through the outer layers of your shoulder. The energy waves reach deep into your muscles, tendons and cartilage, reducing your pain as they heal the inner tissue.

MendMeShop Inferno Wrap and how it works to cover you tendon with healing heat.

A Shoulder Inferno Wrap gives you unparalleled blood flow stimulation energy. You simply won’t find a comparable product on the market. Other therapy products can not come close to offering the comfortable, contoured fit and targeted energy treatment an Inferno Wrap provides. You will feel the soothing, deep penetrating warmth as it works to stimulate your blood flow, we guarantee it. Now you can reduce your pain and heal your shoulder anywhere with the comfortable, light weight Inferno Wrap.


If you suffer from mild inflammation or pain after certain activities or movements use a Freezie Wrap® when you complete the activity and then rest and elevate your shoulder. Limit the application of the Inferno Wrap® to a couple of treatments per day (the manual will recommend treatment frequency depending upon the injury). Proven Performance, Proven Relief - only found at MendMeShop. If you have been given a treatment plan by your health professional, make sure you adhere to it to ensure pain free living. In general, people who are committed to their therapies and exercises will have the best medical outcomes.
