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.

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 back from work.
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 recently purchased the Inferno Wrap from mendmeshop and have been using it every day for several weeks now. I started seeing positive results the second or third time I used it. I'm not sure what caused the sudden discomfort in my shoulder, but w[See Full Review]hen I first experienced it, I went on line and googled "Torn Rotator Cuff"
After reading about the shoulder joint, I saw the information from the mendmeshop. Several years ago I purchased a similar device from your company for a knee injury.. I had very good results with the heat treatment, so when I saw the Inferno Wrap, I knew from past experience that it was probably going to work. The shoulder discomfort has gone, but I still continue to use the Inferno Wrap every day.
Hats off to the Mendmeshop for providing such instant and positive relief. [Close Review]

Just want to let you know that I've had a chance to use the Freeze Wrap.
I fell down on my tail bone and injured it slightly. I put the Freeze Wrap on my behind every night while watching TV, and it seems to help it a lot.
I alternate between [See Full Review]the 2 ice packs, keeping one in the freezer at all times.
Thought you might be interested in this for the follow-up of your products. Will recommend your products highly to anyone interested.
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. [Close Review]

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. __________________[Close Review]

So far, so good! I've used the shoulder treatment 4x a day for a week now and seen a marked improvement in my shoulder with both flex ability and pain relief.
As a follow up one week after the initial comments...
Thanks for your fast delivery of this product. It has been helpful in the management of pain and has helped to keep my shoulder from getting worse. This was a gift to me and I really have appreciated it.
This (Back/Hip Inferno) wrap is amazing! I am already feeling the difference of pain level in my hip thank you.

The service from the Mend Me Shop is by far the best you could ever hope for. I have spoken to Paul on numerous occasions and his knowledge is very much appreciated.

As you know the shoulder is a difficult area to Ice.
Since I got my Freezie wrap, it has become so easy to do my treatments.
I love it and use it daily. It has been huge in the progress I've been seeing. Thank you

We are very pleased with the results we have both achieved with the Inferno back wrap and Inferno shoulder wrap. Great products.

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!!![Close Review]

I am a very active individual. If I am not running or lifting weights you can usually find me doing various outdoor and home improvement projects.
That is why when I recently started experiencing pain in my shoulder, upper arm and forearm I conclud[See Full Review]ed that I had aggravated an old rotator cuff injury. Initially I ignored the discomfort, thinking that that would make it magically disappear but, to my disappointment the pain only continued to get worse.
After a couple of months of I pain, I decided to do something for myself. I tried stretching exercises, massage, the heating pad and ibprofen but nothing seemed to be helping.
That's when I went online and found the Mend Me Shop and the inferno wrap for the shoulder seemed like a good way to wrap the heat around the immediate area that needed treating.
When I picked up the package from the post office I was anxious to get started. I was so pleased that after only three days of using the products, I was feeling relief. It's only been a little over a week since I started treatments and I can say that I can once again imagine living without the that constant pain.
I love the freezie wraps, and use them for hip pain. They work well at night to take away most of the bursitis like pain.
The Mend Me shop has provided excellent advice and treatment protocol which has been invaluable.

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.
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. [Close Review]

Also great for ribs I have broken; cracked and even fractured almost all my ribs in all this ; you trip fall just right and you can't stop yourself well rest is history feels good on that part. Let me tell you, just last week I bent over and pulled m[See Full Review]y ab muscle so I wore the Inferno Wrap over my abs and helped heal in 3 days, back in action again.[Close Review]
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.[Close Review]

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 orde[See Full Review]r 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.

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.

The Shoulder Inferno wrap is working well for my shoulder bursitis.
I went to my primary care doctor this week, and she was very interested in the treatments and the success - when little else was working in the last 5 months.
