Dear MendMeShop,

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 order 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. I am right on the cute off for 40' and went bigger when I first ordered and should have ordered the small.

Dear MendMeShop,

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 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.

Dear MendMeShop,

I have purchased several pieces from your shop (Tortoise Shellz Full Body Therapy Pad along with two Wrist Inferno Wraps) and we are very happy with all of them. In fact, I don't know what we would do without them, as all the injuries are improving gradually. Thank you for these wonderful products, and thank you, too, for the personal attention to your customers. A rarity, in today's world!

Dear MendMeShop,

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 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. Sincerely, Irene

More Groin Injury Facts:

If you have a groin strain, you will feel pain within your inner thigh; if the injury is severe enough, you may have difficulty walking.


Approximately 10% of ice-hockey injuries and 5% of soccer related injuries are groin injuries.


Once you have suffered one Groin injury, there is a much higher likelihood you will suffer another Groin Injury compared to the average person.


A slippery playing surface can increase your odds of a groin strain due to slipping.


Certain Lower Back Issues may potentially cause adductor muscles; weak adductor muscles are more prone to strain than stronger adductor muscles.


A complete tear of an adductor muscle will require reattachment surgery. It is relatively uncommon except in causes of significant trauma (ie. car accident)

Dear MendMeShop,

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 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. 100% satisfied Cameron Caldwell from Meriden, KS.

Dear MendMeShop,

The first time I used the shoulder inferno wrap and the freezie wrap was to treat a rotator cuff injury I sustained from over use and aging. I was in my early 60's and an avid tennis player,kayaker, skier, hiker and biker for most of my life. Doctors were recommending surgery but I opted for physical therapy. This helped but did not give me the relief I needed to continue with all of my athletic activities. Then I started using your product. After activities where I used my shoulder, even weight training, I used the freezie wrap followed by the inferno wrap. Then I used the inferno wrap periodically throughout the day while at work. I'm a therapist and my clients were OK with me wearing the wrap during sessions if I felt the need to. I experienced the ability to use my shoulder and be completely pain free. I was thrilled. Then at age 65 I began to have achilles tendon inflammation which became extremely painful. Doctors explained to me that as we age tendons lose flexibility and are more prone to injury. I bought that explanation to a point but again tried physical therapy, prolonged stretching, Ibuprofen and rest. I had relief if I used large regular doses of anti-inflamatory medications but was concerned about the long term negative affects of the meds. I purchased the Ankle inferno and freezie wrap and began the same routine I had used with my rotator cuff injury. I'm happy to say the results were the same. Even this aging body was able to repair and stretch my achilles tendon with exercise, and the cold and warm treatments from your products. Now I am still playing tennis and doing all of my other activities and I remain pain free. After athletics I use the freezie wrap followed by the inferno wrap. Also, before I play racket sports or hike I use the inferno wrap on my ankle and follow with gentle stretching. When I get home I use the freezie wrap. Who knows how long I will be able to continue my active life style. But right now I know that these products are enabling me to be an active, vibrant, aging woman who can (almost) keep up with my kids. I should add that I also maintain a healthy weight, train with weights, exercise every day and eat a plant based diet with lean protein. Even my healthy lifestyle wasn't enough to prevent these nagging injuries that become more prevalent as we age. So....thanks for making a great product ...... and my life more manageable.

Dear MendMeShop,

Things are going well with my healing sessions. I had it three times daily with each session lasting 20 minutes maximum for two weeks. I noticed reduction of pain in my third day using the Inferno Wrap. In my Second week I reduced the sessions to just one (20 Minute) per day. The pain is almost gone except when I make a wrong and abrupt move on or of my right (problematic) shoulder. Hopefully, I do not have to use the Freeze Wrap this summer when I do most of my heavy yard work, but I am assured that there is this cold treatment if in case I hurt my shoulder again. I now have decided not to have an MRI on my shoulder and undergo more expensive treatments or therapy from my specialist ortho doctor . I think his diagnosis of "Frozen shoulder" or possible rotator cup tear are correct. I will be watching my progress and if condition gets worse, I will call him again for appointment. But for the mean time, I am satisfied with my Inferno Wrap treatment on myself. I am glad to have save time and money at least for now. Thanks again for your wonderful products and support. Warm Regards to your Team. P.S. In a follow up email Jesse sent us later in the year, Jesse indicated the Inferno wrap did wonders... it's been almost nine months ago since I purchased your products. I am happy to let you know as today that my frozen shoulder is no longer an issue. I believed in less than a month of continuous therapy sessions per your instructions on the product my pain is gone.

Dear MendMeShop,

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 moment 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!!!

Dear MendMeShop,

Hello, I'm reporting into you that the shoulder wrap is working so good. Most of my pain is gone now. I have good movement of the arm. Can raise it up over head now and around to the back. Before I started the treatments I was not able to do these things. I am a believer of your product and I will continue to use it. I went to my Doctor today for my yearly physical and I told her about me ordering this wrap, as I did not want to go through another surgery on the rotator-cuff. I just got done doing my overhead pulley exercises on my arms and then I put on the wrap and it felt so good. I still am being very careful as to not over use the arm. I was able to run my vacuum today with the right arm and did great. Ok, just thought you would like to hear my progress and I am very happy with the results so far

The Final Step Needed to Treat Groin Injuries


Stretch your muscles to boost healing.

It's now possible to boost your healing by stretching your groin injury at home. Stretching is the final step needed when healing your injury (sprain, strain, pull, spasm) with conservative treatment methods.

Your body is capable of healing itself - and natural healing will happen even faster by using consistent conservative treatment with a Therapeutic Cold Compression Freezie Wrap®, Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy Inferno Wrap® and Passive Stretching / Strengthening with a Knee-Flex®.


Knee-Flex® = a Passive Groin Stretching Device Used in Hundreds of PT Clinics and Hospitals in Canada

This Same Device is Now Available for Use at Home


Knee - Flex Therapy Usage

This seemingly simple device has helped thousands of patients recover from various deep tissue, muscle, groin injuries. Physical therapists use the Knee-Flex® to help their patients make a fast and full recovery.

The Knee-Flex® Passive Stretching Device helps with:

  • Post-surgery rehabilitation (ie. arthroscopic or open repair surgery).
  • Recovery from a serious sprain, strain, pull or spasm to the hamstring, quadriceps, calf, shin, thigh, hip and groin.
  • Increasing flexibility after suffering from a groin injury.
  • Stretching out scar tissue from a calf muscle (gastrocnemius) strain (or 'tennis leg').
  • Decreasing stiffness from shin splints and lower leg pain.
  • Getting rid of quadricep (thigh) muscle tightness.

Stretch with a Knee-Flex® to prevent re-injury - regular stretching maintains flexibility of the tissue as it ages.

 

Doctors and physical therapists recommend stretching to prevent and recover from deep tissue injuries.

For many people, stretching seems like such a basic thing... They wonder how stretching can really help a groin injury. You would be surprised by how many people there are that don't understand the importance of stretching a deep tissue injury.

Before returning to full activity after a groin injury, physical therapists prescribe gentle stretching of the affected muscle and tendon group(s) (and any surrounding muscles that will lend much-needed support to your injured area). They don't prescribe this to annoy you - it's the most important part of muscle recovery. You probably know of someone that chose not to do these stretches as it's common - and they paid a high price for it.

By not listening to the therapist (i.e. not stretching), there is a huge chance of re-injuring your groin. You might even get injured worse than your original groin sprain, strain, pull or spasm was.


It may seem hard to believe but it's true - Stretching is the secret of healing any soft tissue injury. Consistent stretching is one of the only solutions to break up scar tissue that forms on your groin injury as it heals.

Stretching with ColdCure Technology® and BFST® is even better!


If you want to be proactive about properly addressing your groin injury speak to your doctor about adding to your treatment with AidMyGroin's system utilizing the Knee-Flex®, Inferno Wrap® and Freezie Wrap®.

The AidMyGroin therapeutic at-home healing system gives you:

Our Knee-Flex Passive Muscle Strething Device will increase flexibility of your healing tissue and help to break up scar tissue that forms on your groin.
  • Products that are approved by the FDA for use in the hospital or at home.
  • A 3-Step Treatment Formula used by physical therapists and doctors - with an Inferno Wrap® used to increase blood flow circulation before stretching, a Knee-Flex® to stretch out your groin and a Freezie Wrap® to 'cool down' & relieve post-stretching pain / swelling.
  • An Inferno Wrap® with deeply penetrating Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy right into your deep groin tissue where you need treatment most (unlike other methods that just heat your skin - like hot water bottles, hot baths, etc.)
  • A Cold compression Freezie Wrap® that relieves pain, inflammation and swelling fast with consistent cold temperatures that WON'T reach temperatures so low that it causes cryoburn (like ice or blue gel packs full of anti-freeze and chemicals).
  • Food-grade, non-toxic gel packs that can be chilled in the fridge or freezer.
  • Medical-grade, soft, plush, neoprene wraps that meet ISO 10993 biocompatibility testing - providing the safest product for cold compression and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy treatment.
  • Controlled, comfortable, passive movement and stretching with the Knee-Flex® - producing the exact same, safe, stretch every time!

Stretching = The Best Way to Deal with Scar Tissue


Scar tissue will grow in to protect your injured groin, but the scar tissue will attach to everything resulting in a hard fusing together of tendon tissue - reducing mobility.

Even when you're injured and in pain you need to keep moving to break up scar tissue that's forming in your groin. Regular movement can increase healthy range of motion (ROM) of your groin, resulting in a speedier recovery process and return to regular activities. Moving when you're injured is hard. Since moving while injured can be painful - most people think it's better to stop moving, rest their body and hope that their groin strain will heal all on its' own. Even though rest is important to recovery too much rest during the recovery process will increase the amount of scar tissue on your the muscles, tendons or ligaments in your groin.

During the healing process your body will fill in tears in your damaged tissue with dense, brittle tissue called "scar tissue". The human body will use scar tissue as a temporary solution and will try to build the scar tissue as fast as possible to heal a tear. Scar tissue can form fast to bring together the edges of a tear, but working fast doesn't mean that the job's done right. When scar tissue forms it doesn't come together as neatly as regular (healthy) tissue would. Scar tissue fibers will lay down over top of your tear in a cluttered, messy and jumbled up way.

Imagine throwing a bunch of drinking straws in the air... Those straws will land in a random, unorganized way. It seems silly to think that those straws could land perfectly straight and all in the same direction.

This is how scar tissue works. The scar tissue that forms on your groin will be unorganized and won't line up properly with the healthy tissue surrounding the tear. This scar tissue will also attach to everything in and around your injury including the surrounding healthy tissue as well. This can result in a long-term fusing together of your groin that stiffens up your tissue, reducing your mobility and making your injury even more painful!

Scar tissue builds on the muscle as the tears heal. The build up causes pain and inflexibility making your muscle more prone to further injury.

This is why scar tissue is weak and only a temporary solution to heal your pulled / strained groin. Scar tissue is something that needs to be dealt with fast. If you try to get back into your regular daily activities with a mound of scar tissue on your groin you'll have a higher risk of re-injury. Scar tissue is just not built to withstand the pressures of regular activity.

If you have an injured groin with a lot of scar tissue and re-injure that tissue, even more scar tissue will grow to fill in those tears. If you keep falling into the dangerous cycle of re-injuring your groin without proper treatment you could end up with massive amounts of scar tissue. Your ability to move your affected groin and leg in a normal way will be impaired as the amount of scar tissue increases.


The only solution to truly repair your pulled groin for good is to break up scar tissue and avoid re-injury.

 

This can easily be achieved with regular use of the Knee-Flex®. This device provides a sturdy hardwood track with an easy gliding motion giving you the same stretch everytime. Your movement is controlled reducing your risk of re-injury. The result is a consistent stretch that helps to break down your scar tissue and improve flexibility in your groin and leg.



Use the Knee-Flex® to Bring Your Deep Tissue Stretching & Rehabilitation
to a Whole New Level!


It's very common for a physical therapist to combine conservative treatments and stretching techniques to help you heal your strained groin. They'll also probably give you advice to continue specific stretches at home, everyday, to increase your rate of recovery. If no device is available to allow for consistent stretching of your groin at home the physical therapist will usually prescribe something called "heel slides".

Heel slide movement without a device like the Knee-Flex often results in uncontrolled, inconsistent movement that could lead to further injury of your muscle.

A "heel slide" is a full flex and extension of your lower leg. Heel slides can be performed in a seated or laying down position. To start this movement you first need to slide your heel in toward your body, then you slide it right back out away from your body.

Heel slides (full heel to hip movement) is nothing new... Common stretching practices like Pilates, Yoga and other fitness techniques all encourage heel to hip movement to firm, tone and condition the muscles and soft tissue in your thigh. This movement is also used to increase alignment of your leg from your heel to your hip and improve your lower body balance. A lot of muscle, tendon and ligament groups are involved in this stretch - like your hip (hip flexors), hamstring muscle, quadriceps muscle, your groin, all of the tendons and ligaments in your knee, your calf muscles, your shins, and your ankles. This is why heel slides are considered to be a foundation stretch for ALL of your leg muscles.

When physical therapists perform heel to hip stretching they'll manually flex and extend your leg for you until you have enough strength to do it on your own.

You'll slowly get the hang of this movement in physical therapy and your therapist will recommend that you continue a set of heel slide stretches several times each day in your own home.

Physical therapists will manually manipulate your leg to perform assisted heel slides while massaging different areas of your leg.

When trying to do this stretch on your own your physical therapist might encourage you to use household tools to assist in your stretch.

They may suggest you use:

  1. a plastic bag,
  2. cookie sheet,
  3. a tension band,
  4. a belt,
  5. or some other tool to help you slide your heel away from your body.
The Knee-Flex provides easy, consistent heel slide stretching and is exclusively offered by AidMyGroin.com

They recommend these tools to help you get consistent stretching and assistance during your stretching routine. The problem with this is that using a plastic bag or cookie sheet during this stretch can be unsafe, with little to no control over your lower leg... Potentially resulting in an even worse injury!

This is where the Knee-Flex® comes in! The Knee-Flex® provides safe, consistent, controlled leg movement on a sturdy, hardwood track. This makes sure that your heel slides are the same every time!

Your stretch won't vary or change as you attempt a higher number of repititions, experience set-backs from re-injury, or lose control over unsafe household tools. This gives you the same groin stretching every time to break-up scar tissue, increase muscle strentgh, and improve your overall range of motion.


What if You've Never Gone to a Physical Therapist?

Knee-Flex is used throughout Canadian physical therapy clinics and hospitals.

The idea behind the Knee-Flex® is exactly the same. If you're someone who hasn't had the chance to see a physical therapist you might think that stretching is hard to do without guidance from a medical professional.

In some ways you're right - Without the direct guidance of a physical therapist it's easy to make mistakes when stretching at home. You may have even attempted some stretching you saw in a pamphlet/brochure in a doctor's office, or searched online for muscle/tendon or ligament stretching techniques. If you try this on your own there is always a risk of re-injuring.


You can get the same positive results of stretching in physical therapy appointments by using a Knee-Flex® in the comfort of your own home.


 



Knee-Flex® = Trusted Equipment Used by
Physical Therapists


This device is used by many medical professionals, they rely on the sturdy, sleek design to help their patients achieve improvements in mobility.

Knee-Flex® was created to allow the heel to slide smoothly in a controlled environment, minimizing the chance of re-injury and additional pain. Physical Therapists encounter the same issues every day when attempting to work with people who are undergoing therapy from a serious groin injury. This is why most therapists in Canada instantly purchased these same devices for their own clinics and have been ordering this device for 10 years!

If you're recovering from serious pain, it allows a more controlled and comfortable method to stretch and strengthen your muscles, tendons and ligaments. The sliding mechanism is extremely smooth and durable, as well as linear (perfectly straight) - this is something that becomes very important when sliding your leg in and out.



The Knee-Flex is an FDA registered device, under facility number 30006334471 and product listing number D150272

The Knee-Flex® is an FDA Registered Medical Device and is suitable for repetitive, industrial usage in hospitals and therapeutic clinics. This device is deemed safe to use without medical assistance and as such is also available for use at home.


Why is it called the 'Knee-Flex®'?


Passive stretching with a Knee-Flex device will help to break up scar tissue.

Well because it does just that, it provides you a sliding, sturdy track to flex your knee and all of the muscles, ligaments and tendons that help to move your leg an groin.

It's a total leg stretching system that only requires you to flex your knee.

This seemingly simple device has assisted in the recovery of thousands of people that have suffered various injuries. Once you are on the path to healing, this device assists you in making a fast and full recovery.

The Knee-Flex® assists you in complete lower-body muscle injury recovery for:

  • Male groin pain - Get rid of your sharp inner thigh pain, tightness, tenderness or muscle spasms from groin disruptions, Gilmore's groin, athletic pubalgia, sports hernia, and any other groin pull, strain, sprain or injury.
  • Female groin pain - Get rid of your sharp inner thigh pain, tightness, tenderness or muscle spasms from groin disruptions, athletic pubalgia, sportswomen hernia, and any other groin pull, strain, sprain or injury.
  • Hamstring muscle pulls / pulled hamstring muscle - Over-stretching or over-exerction of your hamstring muscle can be treated with a quick Knee-Flex® warm-up before activity.
  • Calf muscle strain (gastrocnemius muscle pain) - Reduce tightness in your calf muscle (from lunging or pushing off with your leg).
  • Shin splints (posteromedial / anterolateral shin splints) - Reduce the shooting pain from your knee to your ankle with regular stretching.
  • Thigh muscle / quadriceps muscle strain - Ease the radiating pain on the front of your thigh (from your hip to knee) and stiffness / decreased range of motion.
Our Knee-Flex Passive Muscle Strething Device will increase flexibility of your healing tissue and help to break up scar tissue that forms on your muscle.

After using the Knee-Flex® over-time, your groin will be better prepared to handle more and more movement and weight. Eventually you'll reach a stage where your groin can handle the weight from standing for longer and longer periods of time or pivoting / twisting your thigh. This is the final stage of recovery, depending on your age, the nature of your injury, your weight and many other factors, it can take the longest time to complete.

But remember, when it comes to deep tissue groin injuries - it pays to be patient! Rushing your injury recovery almost never pays.





Stretching your groin with a Knee-Flex® is
even more powerful when combined with:

  • A Deep Tissue Therapeutic Inferno Wrap® to increase elasticity of tissue and stimulate blood flow in the injured groin before stretching.
  • A Professional Cold Compression Freezie Wrap® to reduce pain and inflammation in the affected tissue after stretching.
 

There is a Unique Formula used for Recovery from Muscle Pain...

We're going to let you in on a key piece of information... In every physical therapy appointment your physical therapist will use conservative treatments, massage, manual manipulation and/or stretching exercises to give you this Professional 3-Step Treatment Formula:


Step 1 - Warm Up Your Groin

Physical therapists will warm up your muscle by performing deep tissue massage.

For this 1st step many physical therapists will use heat, manual manipulation, deep tissue massage, clinical ultrasound devices or a warm bath to warm up your groin. The goal during this first step is to increase healthy blood flow circulation and relax your tense groin muscles.

'Warming up' your groin will increase the elastic-nature of your muscle/tendon fibers making it much easier to stretch and when needed, hold the stretch. This will also extend the amount that you will be able to stretch your tissue.


Increase Your Blood Flow Circulation at Home

The Perfect BFST Leg Wrap

Use an Inferno Wrap® for 15 to 20 minutes at least half an hour before stretching your groin. An Inferno Wrap® will promote Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) - a therapy that will increase the blood flow to your groin while warming up and relaxing your injured tissue. BFST® will make your muscle/tendon fibers more elastic and pliable, allowing for more ease of movement when you're stretching and/or exercising.

Continued treatment with BFST® will also deliver much-needed oxygen, nutrients, antibodies and energy to your soft tissue. This will boost your own natural healing ability and speed up your time for recovery.


Step 2 - Stretch Your Groin Area

After your muscle is warmed up your physical therapist will guide you through stretches to improve mobility.

The main goal of physical therapy is to exercise (stretch out) the affected muscle/tendons and ligaments to improve flexibility and range of motion. After the physical therapist has warmed up your groin, they'll get you to do a series of exercises that are focused on stretching out your injury.

This exercise may include heel slides that are focused on moving your quadriceps, groin, hip, hamstring, calf and shin.

Sometimes cardiovascular exercise, like using a stationary bike or treadmill, will be recommended under the supervision of your physical therapist.


Improve Your Leg's Range of Motion at Home

The Knee-Flex® can be used to perform consistent stretching that's beneficial to all of the muscle groups in your leg, incluing your groin. Start off with 10 repititions of the Knee-Flex® stretch at least once everyday. Increase your repititions as the movement becomes more fluid and natural for you.

Amazing Groin Stretching with Knee-Flex

You can easily modify these stretches to further work out specific muscle groups in your leg by turning your foot in toward your other leg (point your toe in) when sliding your leg out away from your body, then turning your foot out away from your body (point your toe out to the side) when sliding your leg in toward your hips/lower back.

Another subtle change to this movement is pointing your toe forward when sliding your heel out, away from your body. You can then flex your foot up (pointing your toe to the cieling) when flexing your knee and bringing your heel back toward your body.

These small changes in movement will boost the amount of work all of the muscles in your legs are doing while using the Knee-Flex®.


Step 3 - Cool Down Your Groin

Toward the end of your appointment your physical therapist may introduce cold compression, acupuncture, or TENS to relax your groin after the intense stretching and exercise.


Relieve Your Groin Pain & Swelling at Home

Sprained Groin Cold Compression Treatment

Use a Freezie Wrap® after using your Knee-Flex®, stretching / exercising your groin, or whenever you feel deep tissue pain. The Freezie Wrap® will relieve any on-going pain and swelling while preventing full-blown inflammation from returning after your stretching.

Start with a 20 minute treatment directly after activity and apply more cold compression whenever you need to relieve pain and inflammation in your groin. With a groin injury, cold compression should be limited to very acute (new / fresh) groin pain or injury. This is beause there is very little natural blood flow in the groin area. Cold compression is only beneficial in the initial pain / swelling / inflammation stage and should be reduced once this subsides.

Each Freezie Wrap® has non-migrating RigiGel® that keeps the cold over your groin where it's needed most. With 3 extra large gel packs you also have the ability to swap out gel packs to extend your post-stretch cool down however long you need it.



Get Even More Healing Potential
from Your Knee-Flex®


Regular stretching with a Knee-Flex® will also give you:


  • Chronic Groin Pain Recovery & Post-Surgery Rehabilitation in the Comfort of Your Own Home

Our Knee-Flex Passive Groin Strething Device will increase flexibility of your healing tissue and help to break up scar tissue that forms on your soft tissue.

After you've injured / pulled / strained / sprained your groin massive amounts of scar tissue will grow all around the micro-tears in your tissue to provide a "temporary fix" and increase stability of your leg and groin. Scar tissue will constantly grow when you're suffering from a chronic groin injury and even when you're recovering from open or arthroscopic surgery.

Scar tissue causes your tissue fibers to stiffen up over time. This is why your leg and groin will feel less and less flexible and where your tightness will come from.

The only solution to get rid of scar tissue and promote growth of healthy, flexible tissue is repeated motion through exercise.

Using Your Knee-Flex® - Helpful Tips & Tricks


knee flex sitting position

The Knee-Flex® will become an invaluable tool in your recovery. When used correctly, this device can strengthen and stretch four different muscle groups and stimulate blood flow in your soft tissue for a speedier recovery.

Speak to your doctor and/or physical therapist about using the Knee-Flex® device for your rehab exercise. Here are a few things to consider when you start using it:

  • On the 1st session, loop a belt or bathrobe around your foot to assist your efforts. Once you find this is not needed then stop using the loop.
  • Don't worry if you're unable to perform a full stretch when first using this device. Do whatever stretch you can and this machine will assist in increasing your range of motion over the long run.
  • Our Knee-Flex Passive Groin Strething Device will increase flexibility of your healing tissue and help to break up scar tissue that forms on your groin.
  • Set up the machine in a stable area free from obstruction. Most of our users find a pillow is very helpful as well for sitting/lying on.
  • Always use the machine slowly and in a controlled manner. Quick, jerky movements are not helpful and will only cause added problems.
  • When placing your heel on and off the machine, use your arms to lift your leg. This will keep the stress off of your injury.
  • Always follow the instruction manual provided with your Knee-Flex®.
  • Phone an AidMyGroin Adviser toll-free at 1-866-237-9608, if you have any questions about stretching with your Knee-Flex® or how to incorporate other therapies into your stretching routine.

When used properly, the Knee-Flex® has a proven track record of assisting in the speedy recovery of many people suffering from pulled muscles, on-going groin pain and strained muscles. The Knee-Flex® is without a doubt, the 3rd and final essential tool for complete recovery. Once you deal with the swelling and inflammation through use of the Freezie Wrap® then begin the BFST® process through the use of the Inferno Wrap® - it's time to take the 3rd and final step in recovery by beginning a rehabilitation stretching regimen. The safest and most effective way we know to stretch all of the muscles in your leg is through use of the Knee-Flex®

Groin Injury Facts:

A Groin Strain is an injury that is common in specific sports such as ice hockey, swimming, basketball, soccer, rugby, and dancing.


The function of the groin muscles (adductors) is to "adduct" the thigh. In simpler terms it means the groin muscles pull the femur (large bone in upper leg) and knee inward. If you were lying down with a beachball between your feet - to exert more pressure on the beachball, most of the work would be done by the adductor muscles.


A "groin" strain usually refers to a muscle strain in one of the hip adductor muscles. These muscles are the: Adductor Brevis, Adductor Longus, Adductor Magnus, Gracilis, and the Pectineus

Dear MendMeShop,

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 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.

Dear MendMeShop,

I constantly use the Leg Inferno Wrap for my thigh and hamstring pain......love walking/running. It's great for shin splints.... feels good when muscle gets hot. Really helped when I woke up one morning with a lower leg deep vein Thrombosis really bed with the combo of whey protein; herbs for inflammation; and wearing this I was able to start running again in three weeks and walk normally in 2 weeks. Constantly use every evening and feels good after; For anyone like me it's a great product.

Dear MendMeShop,

So far so good. After using a variety of ice packs there is no comparison in comfort and success of reducing swelling in the affected areas with these “Freezie Wraps”. We will continue to use them and let you know how it goes!

Dear MendMeShop,

Two years ago, after returning to the gym for the first time in over a decade, I developed intense lower back pain which radiated into my left hip and leg. I also developed snapping hip syndrome. After many expensive visits to a chiropractor and physical therapist, I gained some relief, but still experienced constant low level pain in the injured areas with episodes of intense debilitating pain which interfered with my sleep and work. After searching online for alternative and cost effective self treatment methods, I discovered your website and purchased your Back/Hip Inferno Wrap and Back/Hip Freezie Wrap. Within a short period of time of using these products, I noticed a huge reduction in pain. Two months later, the pain is barely noticeable, the snapping hip syndrome is an unpleasant memory and I feel that significant long term healing of chronic injuries is taking place. I absolutely LOVE your products, and enthusiastically recommend them to everyone I meet who is experiencing similar pain issues. Kudos to Paul and everyone in your customer service department which is beyond compare in terms of knowledge, promptness and genuine concern for your customers!

Dear MendMeShop,

Paul, The things I ordered from you seem to help and I am glad to have them. It has been really hot weather here so I don't use it as often as I should but it has relaxed the shoulder and I have a lot more movement. Thanks for your help, you speak the truth. I am telling others of your products.

Dear MendMeShop,

You are an outstanding company with great service! I have bought both the back/hip and leg inferno wraps, though I sent the leg wrap back and exchanged it for another back/hip inferno (for a friend). My friend liked the back inferno wrap so much he bought the second one from me as soon as he used it.

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.
