Therapist Uses the Inferno Wrap for Her Own Injuries

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.

Gratefully,
Pat DeCoste
