More Frozen Shoulder Facts:

About 6 million people in the U.S. seek medical care each year for shoulder problems.


Previous shoulder injuries that haven't completely healed including buritis, tendonitis and rotator cuff injuries can lead to a frozen shoulder injury.


A healthy shoulder is the most versatile joint in the human body. It has a wider "range of motion," which means it can move more freely, and in more directions, than any other joint.


Many suffers of frozen shoulder people experience worse pain at night which can easily disrupt normal sleep patterns.


Frozen Shoulder will typically disappear over time without surgery, but this may take up to two years.


Stages of Frozen Shoulder:

  • Freezing/Pain Stage (6 weeks to 9 months): the patient experiences a gradual onset of pain. As the pain worsens, mobility of the shoulder joint decreases.
  • Adhesive Stage (4 to 9 months): the pain gradually lessens although the shoulder stiffness remains.
  • Recovery Stage (4 to 9 months): little pain experience in this final stage, as the mobility of the shoulder returns to nearly normal. It is typical for a recovered patient to regain about 90% of the range of motion they had before the injury.


If conservative treatments fail, your physician may manipulate the joint (while patient is under general anesthesia) to break up the adhesions (scar tissue). Surgery (capsular release) may be used as an option in prolonged and severe cases as well.

Dear MendMeShop,

My back is feeling better. Regular heating pads don't seem to work as well as the Inferno - I would assume due to their lack of penetration. The Inferno Wrap is of good benefit at this point. Thanks for a great product.

I have to admit, I fully expected to be returning my order. (inferno wrap, freezie wrap) I told my wife "this is a lot of money and if doesn't work I'm sending it back", "I've got 60 days".

Well after about 9 days of (2) treatments per day my severe
[See Full Review] case of Lateral Epicondylitis (tennis elbow) is almost pain free.
I tried wearing the over the counter tendon support brace with absolutely no results.

My elbow pain was so bad I couldn't sleep at night and just knew I was going to have to see a doctor. Then I found your website.
I was very impressed with the quality of your wraps, very thick and made form high quality materials. I guess the old adage "you get what you pay for" speaks volumes here.

I'm completely sold on your products and won't be returning anything!!!
Thank you for helping heal my tennis elbow and I've already told many of my friends about your web site.

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.

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 have used the Hip inferno device for 9 days now. The results so far are great.

I have bursitis and have been getting injections which were helping less and less. With your product, the pain has lessened dramatically.

The swelling has gone down
[See Full Review]as well as the tingling and the numbness in my hip. This is remarkable and welcomed relief as I have a vacation planned in 2 weeks and now I can't wait. You spoke to me on the phone about a back product as I have chronic back pain from an L5-S1 Spondylolithesis. I can't remember which but if you can suggest it again I would like to try it.

Again Thanks for your concern and your product. It has certainly increased the "Quality of my Life" already.

When I use the knee Inferno wrap consistently...
When I use the knee Inferno wrap consistently it makes a difference. I need a knee replacement but because of my weight issues I can't get the surgery. The wrap gives me much relief.

I also tore my rotator cuff and had major reconstructive surgery a
[See Full Review]nd 1 year of rehab. Over the years I have stiffness and the shoulder wrap has helped to maintain range of motion.

In addition, I have the tortoise shell for the back and I can't say enough. It hits the whole back up to the neck. Wonderful.

My sister has planter fasciitis she used the foot wrap consistently for several months, now she only needs to use periodically.

I love and use all the products I have purchased and would recommend.

I ordered an Achilles/Ankle ?Inferno Wrap? and a Back/Hip ?Inferno Wrap? which arrived within 48 HOURS.

These wonderful products produced remarkable results from their very first application!

Day One: Initial Treatment @ 9:00 AM on the Low
[See Full Review]Setting for 20 minutes

Second Treatment (same day) @ 12:00 NOON for 20 minutes

Third Treatment (same day) @ 3:00 PM for 20 minutes

Fourth Treatment (same day) @ BEDTIME for 20 minutes

?Rinse & Repeat? every day now?

My range of movement and the reduction of discomfort in my Achilles Tendons improved by at least 90% IMMEDIATELY.

As for my chronic lower-back trouble that is the long-term result of a ?minor exercising mishap? 45 years ago, which randomly flares up on a regular basis..

I am now enjoying Instant Relief thanks to the application of my Back Inferno Wrap whenever I experience any episode of neuro-muscular discomfort !!!

I?ll keep you posted as time goes by, but I wanted to say right away, ?THANK YOU so much for everything?!

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

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.

I have been using the Inferno & Freezie Wraps...
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 am a retired Orthopedic Surgical Registered Nurse First Asst and I just want to say this Shoulder Inferno Wrap is wonderful.

I have had adhesive capsulitis in my left shoulder several times.

I am 67yo now and I have Arthritis, Lupus and fi
[See Full Review]bromyalgia and I had bilat knee replacements in 2001. It has always taken about 6months to get back use of my arm and to get relief from pain.

I read your information and was expecting it to take at least 6weeks to see an improvement. I have used it this short time since receiving it and I am almost painfree.

Occasionally I start to feel a little ache and I put it back on before it becomes pain I have full range of motion when I could not brush my hair or fasten my bra.

Again, I am so pleased and hope it helps others too.

Jane

P.S.

I would like to encourage others to try the products and see if they get the same remarkable results as I did. I continue to improve with full ROM remaining and only occasional episodes of pain; As soon as I feel any pain, I use it 2-3 days in a row and the pain is gone. This is probably Arthritis as it feels different.

Thank you for spending time answering my...
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[See Full Review] 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.

I fell down on ice last March, hit my left shoulder on the ground pretty hard and stirred up an old injury that hadn't bothered me for twenty years. I was in a great deal of pain and tried everything I could think of that might help. I only found tem[See Full Review]porary relief from the pain.

It wasn't until I began using your Shoulder Inferno Wrap that I truly began to heal and the pain slowly began to subside.

After several months, I still use the Wrap daily to maintain the healing and progress I've made. I then also sought the advice of a physical therapist because in addition to the pain I used to have before using the Wrap, I was still dealing with stiffness and a very limited range of motion. After examining me, the therapist said I didn't have rotator cuff issues just muscle issues, a thing called "frozen shoulder".

For seven weeks now I have received help from a massage therapist and am slowly improving the range of motion. I chose to work with her because her sessions include massage and stretching. A session leaves my shoulder feeling slightly sore. I use the Inferno Wrap afterwards and the heat I feel as it works relieves the soreness.

I am sure using the Wrap also helps the muscles "remember" longer the right way they are supposed to feel and function. Combining the Wrap with massage therapy has been a winning combo for me!

Do I dare confess...I love the Wrap so much that I will definitely buy another one. The Back Wrap will be my next purchase from you. I mean this whole-heartedly - thank you for the Wrap!

I am also pleased with your customer service. Dealing with you was a pleasure. You really do care about your customers! I am delighted and impressed with your product and your people.

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
[See Full Review] 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.

I'm doing well with my Inferno Wraps. I have one for my foot, leg, back, and elbow.

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.
