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)

Over the past eight months I have been suffering from shoulder and arm pain. I just kept thinking that the pain would go away on its own. When I reached the point where I was unable to raise my arm
over my head without assistance and forget about putting my arm behind my back.
I decided that a trip to the doctor was due. She ruled out that I had an injury to the Rotator Cuff itself and determined that I had a soft tissue injury. Due to repetitive movement and heavy lifting.
She suggested that I try physical therapy. With my work schedule and family obligations I knew that was going to be very difficult and I wanted something that I could fit into my schedule. So I began doing research on the internet for alternative treatments and exercises.
That's when I found your product on the internet. I was somewhat skeptical as to rather it would perform as stated, but decided to give it a try. It was stated that it could take up to three weeks to feel results.
BUT I am here to say that for myself it has done better. I have been using the Freezie Wrap for a week and have already felt some improvement. I can now raise my arm to just about shoulder height unassisted, and can now almost get my finger tips back behind my back.
I make a point of using Freeze Wrap as soon as I get home from work to relieve the stress to my muscles from work and to keep the inflammation down. Now that I have gotten some of the inflammation gone I intend to incorporate the Inferno Wrap treatment to my regiment to just before going bed to aid the healing process and aid in a better night's sleep.

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 fami[See Full Review]ly 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!
We are really enjoying your product - the reviews convinced me the product was worthwhile.

I have had my Inferno Wrap for nine days and I love it. I noticed a small difference in only two days. I have a small tear in my meniscus and was in pain most of the time. My knee would slip a lot and it was extremely painful. After one treatment[See Full Review] I noticed the difference. I am looking forward to how much better I will get after I really use it for a period of time.[Close Review]

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. [Close Review]

I'm usually a bit of a skeptic but I am absolutely amazed at the improvement in my knee. I was diagnosed with Lateral tendonitis - never knew it could be so painful.
I actually started walking again yesterday and look forward to getting back to Boo[See Full Review]tcamp soon.
I had suffered (really suffered!) with Achilles Tendonitis for almost two years, and spent much time and money going to orthopedists and finally a podiatrist. That last visit made me feel there was no hope, but I decided to go on the internet and I [See Full Review]found the MendMeShop.
I read about the Inferno Wrap, and decided to call and ask more. I figured that the cost of this would be a drop in the bucket to what I'd already spent in co-pays over the past couple of years.
The person at the MendMeShop was knowledgable and very helpful. She advised me on a plan of use, and offered to be a continuing resource for me.
Once I received the Inferno Wrap I followed the advice I'd been given. I used it on my elevated ankle/foot three times a day for 20 minutes each time. (First applying ice for 10 minutes when my ankle was particularly swollen.) Within 3 months of faithful use, I was able to walk without pain. What a relief! And now whenever I feel the slightest indication of discomfort, I use the Inferno Wrap for 20 minutes -- sometimes twice a day.
I have recommended the MendMeShop to friends without hesitation. I feel so appreciative that I found the website on the internet. I also told my primary physician about it so that he could tell other patients to try this wonderful resource.
Today I'm writing from Georgia where I am visiting friends and family. Guess what I packed to come with me?! Right! My Inferno Wrap!
You all met and exceeded - not just my expectations, which were pretty modest, but my hopes at a time when I felt almost desperate!
I have a trochanteric bursitis, and have been seriously bothered by it for more than a year. My rheumatologist gave me two steroid injections which helped briefly and then the pain started again, and th[See Full Review]at pain is almost crippling. Celebrex was recommended and it worked for me except that I have IBS and unfortunately couldn?t continue to take it. Besides it is a systematic drug and who knows what else it may effect.
I was in pain and decided to check out the internet and that is where I found you. I was uncertain about the use of electromagnetic therapy, it sounded like it might be in the snake oil category, but fortunately for me I got good confirmation about the legitimacy of the product.
I have to say I am so glad that I made the purchase.
You are right I felt a difference with the first treatment using the inferno wrap. I have continued to use it about two times a day. I am very impressed with you product. I still have pain, more on same days than others, but it is greatly reduced and I am able to walk without severe pain.
I also ordered the freeze wrap but haven?t used it yet. I expect a situation will arise when I may want to. I will recommend you and your product to anyone who may benefit.
The inferno wrap did a great job on my knee and saved me from surgery!
I am still using it but on my non-injured knee. I noticed no cracking and popping noises (from climbing stairs) after treatment of my left (injured) knee, so now I am treating t[See Full Review]he right knee as well.
I'm 52 & in fairly good shape, I mountain bike for hours - at least twice a week. I kayak offshore for hours twice a week. I also snorkle & work out.
So when my son invited me to play paint ball, my leg muscles were strong enough to do what my mind [See Full Review]told them...to a point where my left leg (the one that got bent backwards playing little league baseball 29 years ago) became so painful the next day.
I was shocked & amazed how I had gone from in great shape to a hobbling old man.
A bit of research I re-learned hot before & cold after a workout/activity.
Cold packs are cheap at the drug store & heat pads are too, but destroyed a few of these in the microwave oven to heat. I found the frozen packs seemed a bit too much & the heat pads ether nearly burned me or wasn't hot enough to get deep.
I then went back & ordered your hot & cold products AND MY PRODUCTS GOT HERE IN MAUI IN TWO DAYS ARRIVING ASTONISHINGLY ON A SATURDAY !!!!
I now heat up both my knees before a workout or just as good treatment & cool 'em down after. I feel like I'm 99% better but I'll continue to use these products as I feel it'll keep me from getting a knee injury.
The relief is so wonderful...I paddle for hours and I have no issues.[Close Review]

I used the Inferno wrap diligently for weeks and my knee felt much better. (I did find out I have a torn meniscus as well as an edema on my right knee). Of course, the doctor recommended surgery, which I am trying to avoid.
I was feeling much b[See Full Review]etter and went back to line dancing with some pain, but kept going. I now think I went back too soon and I was feeling like I may have injured it further, so I was using the Inferno wrap 4 times a day again.
I feel I should have kept on using the wrap more often and not been in such a hurry to get back to dancing.
I am totally sold on the Inferno wrap. I purchased one for my achilles heel problem and it has helped it also.
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 suffered a repeat motion injury to my wrist at work about 2 months ago. I did a lot of research online and self diagnosed myself with intersection syndrome, a condition of the tendons that run from the back of the thumb, under the muscles in the ba[See Full Review]ck of the wrist, and up the back of the forearm. I was reinjuring or irritating it every day with the simplest of tasks. I could barely use that hand at all, and the swelling was severe. I found your website and after reading the positive results I decided to order your wraps although very skeptical. I alternated the hot and cold wraps and I haven't had a problem with the wrist since. I do a lot of awkward and heavy lifting at work, and have not felt the slightest irritation. 3 times in 4 days and GONE! I still can't believe it. I am forever grateful for finding you.[Close Review]

I wanted to write and extend my thanks for having such a great product!
I have been suffering from Plantar Fasciitis for over two years. My Podiatrist had given me all the Steroid shots he was willing to do and said that surgery was the only optio[See Full Review]n left.
After just 7 days of treatment with your products, the swelling is almost all gone. The intense pain has subsided substantially. I can already go most of a whole day without even thinking about (or feeling) the intense pain.
I'm keeping up the therapy and have a lot of confidence that in a month or two, I can resume my life as usual again!
I learned about your product from surfing the net looking for natural ways to heal tendon injuries.
What I read on your site made sense to me.
Your explanation of soft tissue injury healing, plus your money back guarantee led to my purchase of [See Full Review]your products. I am very happy with both of the items I bought from your company!
The pain in my elbow, which was a constant shooting pain, is gone!
I am still using the Elbow inferno 2x/day. Thank-you so much for offering this kind of a product.
With your company's help I succeeded in mending at home and am back to my work out routine as before.[Close Review]

Just had to share my story. My son who was 17 years old at the time he's now 18, was complaining of pain in both his knees.
We took him to the Dr who told us he had torn cartilage in both knees and would need arthroscopic surgery on both knees to t[See Full Review]ake out the torn cartilage. At this young age I did not want him to loose what cartilage he had as it leads to other problems when you get older.
The orthopedic surgeon wanted to do surgery right away before more damage was done. He had surgery on his left knee and they took out 35% of his cartilage. I went to the internet for help ,hoping there was a better way to solve his problem in his other knee.
That's when I found the Mend me shop.
I showed the articles to his Surgeon and told him I wanted to try it before he had more surgery done. He said it was probably just another internet scam but I went ahead and ordered it anyway sine they have a 60 day return policy. What did we have to lose, nothing. To my surprise the inferno wrap took most of my son's pain, clicking and soreness away.
His knee feels like new again and he's back to paying basketball. I have never responded to any product before but I feel strongly about these products, they really do work, I wish I had saved him from having surgery on his other knee.
So if you are having the same issues give these products a try you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!!!!!![Close Review]

I think you guys have excellent customer service. I use the Knee inferno wrap every night and first thing in the morning and it does make my knee feel better and less stiff.
Dear MENDMESHOP People:...
Dear MENDMESHOP People:
I just want you to know what miraculous relief your products gave me. I had a torn ligament near the inside ankle of my left foot (called "posterior tibial tendonitis" after a long series of non-effective treatments).
I r[See Full Review]eceived this injury last OCTOBER!!! (This is August!) My podiatrist had put me in an immovable "boot" the first 2 months (from about Nov. 1, 2011, to Jan 8, 2012. Then he put me in a lesser type of brace till the middle of May. I was not getting any better, so he put me in a "permanent" molded brace which supposedly would do the trick (according to him).
But I asked the one who fitted me with this brace how long he thought I would need it, and he plainly said, "The rest of your life!" I yelled, "NOOOOOOOOOO! I will not!!! I WILL BE HEALED!" However, I didn't know how.
I then began researching on the internet some other means of healing this type of injury. I found out that tendons do not heal well by themselves, so all I was doing was propping up my injury to a lifestyle of pain and hardship. By the grace of God, I had acquired a motorized chair (I called it my "Chariot") to use, which was a life-saver for about 9 months, or I would have been virtually apartment-bound in this retirement complex where we now live. So I was grateful for the chariot, but it wasn't helping my injured foot to heal. I thought it surely MUST BE healing, but that brace-fitter gave me a rude awakening that it was not, nor would it ever be! Wow!
So I researched on the internet any possible alternatives for healing my foot.
The MENDMESHOP had the most promising way of healing torn tendons, or tendonitis, that I could find. However, we had already spent lots of money on braces, etc., so I didn't purchase it right away. But that allowed me to see that truly, I was NOT getting any better, even in that fancy, molded-to-my foot-and-calf brace. So after more careful research and printing out the articles in your website to study, my husband and I agreed to take the plunge and order the products.
Right off the bat, I found that this was a company that was honest in its dealings, because your sales rep/counselor said it had been too long since my original injury for the Freezie Wrap to be effective, and I only needed the Inferno Wrap.
That was a big PLUS in my opinion, which indicated to me that MENDMESHOP was not just out to SELL if I would buy. I even argued somewhat with the rep, but he stood firm, saying I didn't need the Freezie at this point! So I followed his advice and he was so right!
I received my Inferno Wrap on July 14 and began using it right away. I used the Inferno Wrap at Medium intensity, at about 2 PM and 11 PM. I followed that routine faithfully for about 10 days, and then increased the procedure to 3 times per day for about 5 more days.
On August 2 (only 2 weeks and 5 days into the program) I became truly healed! TRULY HEALED, can you imagine?!? I could hardly believe it, but it was so! There was no pain even without my brace on. And I have not worn the brace since! For a couple of days I still used my "Chariot" for the longer walks I had to do, but then I began leaving it behind and walking normally -- no brace, no pain, no problem! I've even been shopping now without having to use one of those motorized chairs to get around. Thank you SO MUCH!!!
I hope you will use this letter to encourage others like me to "take the plunge" and order the equipment and do the routine. It works, and I'd be happy to help anyone do it. In fact, yesterday as I was shopping, I met a woman who had a "boot" on just like the one I first had. I could sypathize greatly with her, so I told her all about you and how to access you on the internet. I pray she will.
My daughter is a pitcher and has been having treatment on her forearm. We are trying to get her well before the season begins at school.
It is always a pleasure doing business with a company who genuinely cares a[See Full Review]bout the quality of it's product, it's effectiveness and customer service. Please don't change a thing about how you do business there are not enough companies like yours in that respect!
My family has owned small businesses through out the years and quality of work/product, customer service, satisfaction and respect were always our main concerns too!
I am a 57 year old flat footed female, who has suffered off and on for at least 25 years with a painful plantar/heel.
Slept in the splint the first night, and like a miracle, no pain in the morning! The splint looks unwieldy, but is actually q[See Full Review]uite comfortable. Love the Freezie and the Inferno wraps too. Impressed with the quality materials, and the well thought out construction.
I've been using cushions in my shoes, but they only help a little bit.
I am walking pain free these days and it's almost like a miracle! Thanks again for such a wonderful line of products.[Close Review]

Hello April, thank you for your follow up email.
I recently purchased the inferno wrap July 5th 2012 and I am using it diligently, I have seen positive results already in just a few weeks. I no longer need to walk with a cane. I would like to than[See Full Review]k MendMeShop ever so much for giving back me my life. I will continue to use the inferno wrap and I have spread the good word to all my friends on how MendMeShop product has helped me.
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
