More Hip Injury Facts:

The hip joint (scientifically known as the acetabulofemoral joint) is a special type of 'ball-and-socket' joint. Its primary function is to support the weight of the body when at rest or while in motion.


Many patients with Hip Pain are actually diagnosed as suffering from Sciatica. Many of our past client have found success in their treatments by incorporating the use of a Hip/Back T•Shellz Wrap® in their conservative treatment plan.


The majority of chronic hip problems are a result of aging, disease (such as arthritis) and fractures.


A Hip Replacement is a surgical procedure that replaces the hip joint with an artifical joint. Many MendMyHip customers have sped up their post-surgery recovery time with our therapeutic tools.


Bursitis of the Hip (trochanteric bursitis) is so painful, many sufferers rely on a wheelchar for mobility. Hip Bursitis is a condition that typically responds well to conservative treatments.


The most common injury in the hip is snapping hip syndrome due to a tight illotibial band. This syndrome responds very well to heat treatments.


Hip Dislocations are very serious but uncommon injuries that occasionally can occur (usually from a traumatic event). If you suspect you have a dislocated hip, please seek medical attention immediately.

Advanced Hip Injury Treatments


Once your medical professional has diagnosed your condition, you can begin the most effective treatment that is appropriate for your hip injury. There are a variety of options available depending on the severity of your injury.


Non-surgical Hip Treatments

With any hip injury, resting it to prevent further irrigation and injury is recommended.

Your initial treatment should involve decreasing any swelling, relieving any pain and stress on the hip, correcting any bio-mechanical dysfunction, and then restoring strength and mobility to your injured hip. It's also very important to follow any instructions you receive from your physician.

Allowing your hip to rest is recommended following injury, however, some careful movement is required to prevent the joint from freezing and losing range of motion. See your doctor or physical therapist for stretches that will not cause further injury to your hip. Avoid activities that may have caused the injury or irritation and begin cold treatments as soon as possible via use of a Cold Compress or Ice Pack.

Scar tissue develops as damaged soft tissue heals in the hip

Although steroid injections may provide temporary relief from the pain of tendinitis, bursitis, or other soft tissue injuries, they should generally be avoided as they weaken the tendon and may lead to a rupture. If you do opt for an injection, doctors usually recommend that you do not participate in strenuous activities for several weeks to reduce the risk of a rupture.


Okay, So I Have a Hip Injury...What Should I Do Now?

Stage 1: If the Hip injury is very recent - use a good quality cold pack and Arnica Pain Relief Cream. If the injury has been going on for awhile, then skip to Stage 2 below.

If you are experiencing pain and swelling in the very early stages of the injury (first 48 to 72 hours), the first step in a conservative treatment protocol would be to focus on reducing the discomfort by applying a quality cold pack to the injured hip along with a high quality pain relief cream such as our Arnica Infusion Cream.

Not only will you use your cold pack for the first 48 to 72 hours after the injury, but you should also use it during other stages of the healing process. Some examples include...

  • after any activity that stresses the hip in a moderate way. It is wise to quickly apply cold therapy to not only reduce the pain, but to also minimize tissue damage that may have occurred during the prior event.
  • If you have a job that requires you to place some demands on your injured hip. If that is the case, use cold therapy immediately following work and if the opportunity allows - use it for 15 to 20 minutes during lunch or another break time.
  • If you are in a post-operative situation where cold compression would be utilized heavily for at least the first few weeks following the procedure. Similarly, if you are scheduled for upcoming surgery, then you will need a high quality cold therapy device to use.

Having a Cold Compress or Ice Pack available at home to use if and when the need arises is helpful. Many of you already do so.

However, too many people over-focus on cold therapy while ignoring the most critical aspect to healing - nourishing the injured tissues with a healthy supply of blood flow needed to repair and rebuild the injured tissues.

This leads to the most important recommendation...

Conservative Treatment Step 2: Enhance Blood Flow to the Hip As This is The ONLY Soft Tissue Heals

Tendons,ligaments, cartilage, and some muscle fibres are dense tissues. As a result, they naturally receive limited blood flow and this is precisely why injuries to these tissues take so long to heal. The challenge is, how do you effectively increase blood flow to these tissues?

  • Rigorous exercise is out of the question as it will lead to further injury.
  • Visits to the clinic are helpful, but that only happens a few times a week.

Promoting blood flow within a muscle or soft tissue injury to help the body heal itself is a concept that has been utilized for centuries. This is where the focus has to be if you are seeking long-term improvement.

Oxygen and nutrients, carried within the blood, are critical for the body to heal itself. Without proper blood flow, recovering from an injury or condition will be delayed...sometimes for a very long period of time.

The real challenge is how do you promote blood flow to the tendon without causing further injury? This goal is further complicated by the fact that the hip is involved in the majority of the physical movements we perform each day.

An injury that often leads to straining in other areas will make an overall recovery hard to initiate. People tend to "chase the pain", meaning they only focus on treating an area that is actively painful, while not taking into account the fact they other areas of the body will be overcompensating...eventually leading to issues in those areas as well.

Heat energy generated by the T•Shellz Wraps® operate by increasing blood flow in our injured soft tissue. This means ligaments, muscles, and tendons. The objective of the T•Shellz Wrap® is to increase blood flow in these targeted areas, resulting in relaxation of the vessel walls. The vessels then gently expand, allowing for more nutrient rich blood flow along with extra oxygen to reach the damaged tissues. Plus, the enhanced blood flow helps in flushing waste and fluid build-up from the injury site - further enhancing the ability of the body to heal.

With a T•Shellz Wrap® application, more blood begins to flow effectively to soft tissue within the body - for the length of the treatment and a short duration thereafter. Damaged tissue needs extra blood flow to heal as it is through the blood the body carries the oxygen and nutrients needed for proper and long-term healing.

Now, on to recommendation number two in the journey to recover from your hip soft tissue injury...

The Back/Hip T•Shellz Wrap® - A Healthy Hip For The Long Term

The best option we came across in our research to accomplish effective blood flow to soft tissue in the hip or back area is the Back/Hip T•Shellz Wrap®. Use of this device results in an increase of blood flow within the treatment area - all in a non-invasive manner.

Have you seen what happens when you add water to a flower wilted from drought? In essence, your hip soft tissue injury is much like a "wilted" flower; your body wants to heal its injury, but needs lots of nutrients to do it. Blood brings life to your tissue by delivering healing nutrients and oxygen that are vital for their growth and survival. In addition, the blood carries away toxins and waste cleaning the area and healing it faster. Without a good supply of blood, soft tissue in your hip simply won't heal properly.

Using a T•Shellz Wrap® will not expose you to the risk of causing further harm to soft tissue like you can when using rigorous exercise. The Back/Hip T•Shellz Wrap® accomplishes the goal of enhanced blood flow without the need for intensive exercise and as such reduces your risk of re-injury.

The intention of a Back/Hip T•Shellz Wrap® is to ease pain by dilating blood vessels, decrease stiffness by elongating soft tissue, improve blood circulation, and boost metabolism and enzyme activity. In stimulating localized blood flow to damaged soft tissue, you provide needed oxygen and nutrients to grow strong healthy collagen. In addition, you will experience a clearing of toxins and excess fluid build up from the injury site. Over the intermediate term, this helps to reduce incidents of swelling as trapped fluids will be whisked away - reducing pressure on blood vessels.

Conservative Treatment Step 3: Recognize That Healing is a Process

With dedication, the right tools, and the right information - you will achieve your goal of a sustainable recovery. A combination approach of cold therapy, T•Shellz Wrap® treatments, and functional movements will make it happen much more quickly. Healing takes a comprehensive approach and will differ from person to person.


Who Should Use the Back/Hip T•Shellz Wrap®

We recommend the use of a Back/Hip T•Shellz Wrap®:

T•Shellz Wrap coverage side hip
  • If you have bursitis, tendinitis or other soft tissue damage in your hip (or back), then the T•Shellz Wrap® will provide the all-important function of boosting blood circulation where it is needed most.
  • If you are dealing with soft tissue conditions affecting your range of motion.
  • If you have a chronic soft tissue hip condition that has lasted for years- this device is intended to kick start the recovery process and help strengthen the surrounding and supporting tissues.
  • If you are still working with a hip strain or mild tear, the T•Shellz Wrap® will help relax tissue in the hip prior to work and after a day at the job.
  • If you are still trying to enjoy your favorite activities such as gardening, tennis, golf, etc - use the T•Shellz Wrap® prior to activity to help reduce risk of re-injuring or re-aggravating those targeted tissues.
  • If you are suffering from bursitis and want to treat a major source of it (inflammation and damage to tissue surrounding the bursa sac). Through trauma, overuse or degenerative changes, muscle and tendons surrounding the bursa sacs will tighten and constrict. When they do, they place pressure on the bursa, causing it to become irritated. Applying a T•Shellz Wrap® to the area will help relax tissue in the treatment area, taking pressure off the bursa.
  • If you are experiencing atrophy in the hip area and want to reduce the chance of re-injury while stretching - this is a perfect treatment to use before activity, by enhancing blood flow and elongating soft tissue.
  • If you have been to a clinic for some form of massage or stretching and your PT or physician has recommended conservative treatments for home.
  • If you are experiencing tightness in your muscle(s) and want to reduce the chance of re-injury while stretching - we recommend the use of a T•Shellz Wrap® before you stretch.

Increased Blood Circulation Maximizes Your Body's Healing Capability



Hip Injuries Not Only Affect the Hip - But Can Lead to Other Conditions and Injuries.

Every time we use our injured hip, damaged and swollen tendons and muscle tissue move; when they are inflamed, every movement hurts. With injured tissue, pain happens - sometimes a LOT of pain, so we try not to move it. So, when doing something we need to use our hip for (getting dressed, driving, stooping), we start to use the knee and lower back more. If we can, we use our other hip instead even though it is inconvenient.

A couple days later (after purposefully avoiding movement of our hip), the pain has gone down (as well as the swelling) and this is where the trouble begins! The pain disappeared with the swelling but we still aren't fully healed! Not knowing this, we start using our hip normally again and then the injury swells up again like it did before - all because the injury wasn't fully healed in the first place. We continually re-injure the hip injury through our daily activities and now this injury has become a chronic hip injury.

Eventually, we use the other hip more and more - or even use our knee instead of our hip for a lengthy period of time. This is why the knees and opposite hip starts to hurt - they are being overused now. Soon, aches and pain can become commonplace from the lower back down - all as a result of the original hip injury and the body's instinctive nature to "protect" the original injury area - all because the injury wasn't fully healed in the first place!

We continually re-injure the hip through our daily activities and now this injury has become a chronic injury.

overcompensation-injury-prevention-and-rehabilitation

Muscle imbalances result, placing tension on bone and softer tissues - leading to a misalignment within the mid and lower body. The extra stress on the opposite side of the body will also result in weakness and fatigue of the tissues - increasing the chances they can eventually be injured or gradually degenerate. This is a textbook example of how you get an overcompensation injury. In some cases, physical therapists warn that overcompensation can be very dangerous as it will affect gait or alignment on a permanent basis.

An injury to one hip muscle or tendon can easily lead to straining in other areas - just due to the pain response in your biomechanics - making an overall recovery hard to initiate. For example, a serious muscle strain in the right hip can often lead to over-straining of the left hip. Most commonly, the injury occurs on the dominant side, so the risk of straining the other (weaker) side increases. The longer the injury (and corresponding pain) persists, the greater the chance that you will sustain more strain from overcompensation, eventually leading to issues in those areas as well. To minimize potential secondary injuries, know that it is important to deal with your injury quickly and completely.

Truly, hip injuries can become a vicious cycle - which is why it is absolutely critical to focus on methods that improve and strengthen the injured tissues in a timely manner. The faster you truly heal, the less chance you have of sinking into a downward spiral of re-injury, scar tissue growth and overcompensation injuries.


What Else Makes the Back/Hip T•Shellz Wrap® So Special?

We believe the T•Shellz Wrap® to be one of the most effective home treatments to stimulate blood flow to soft tissue without the need for movement.

We can promise that you will receive a product that is designed to be safe and does what it is supposed to do...quickly relieve pain and aid in your home recovery.

When Should I Use My TShellz Wrap During the Day?

The most common question we receive from individuals prior to purchasing is - how many times a day should I be using my Back/Hip wraps and when should I be using them? While treatment plans will differ for each individual and their specific injury, there are general guidelines as shown below:

  • Use a Cold Compress or Ice Pack when you are experiencing inflammation (usually after exertion or movement of the injury area).

The Back/Hip T•Shellz Wrap® would then be used:

  • Right after rising from bed in the morning (as this is when it is most stiff)
  • Prior to going to bed at night (to relax the hip, allowing for better sleep)
  • Before you know you will be using your injured joint (going to work, driving, typing, etc).

Stage 3 - In Between Treatments With T•Shellz Wrap®, Apply Our New Fast Acting Pain Relief Cream Called ARNICA INFUSION

Dealing with aches and pains affecting the foot, ankle, leg, knee, hamstring, hip, back, arm, shoulder, elbow, wrist, or hand? If so, then applying the Arnica Infusion to any of these targeted areas will bring about fast relief from the pain and sore tissues. Simply apply a small amount of cream to the body and moments later, you will experience a soothing and comforting sensation over the area.

Arnica Infusion is specially designed to relieve pain due to sore muscles and joints associated with arthritis, backaches, sprains, strains, and bruises.

A Note On Hip Pain OverCompensation

Since you are reading this, you probably know that serious hip injuries do not just disappear. Over time, it will wreak havoc on your knees and lower back due to lack of movement, over-compensation and a change in gait. It will also wreak havoc on your opposite hip side, due to overcompensation. Recovery takes a longer time for such chronic (long term) injuries, but proper healing is essential to regain strength and get you back to the activities you enjoy.

Over compensation pain can result in a severe setback when recovering from a Hip injury.

Everything in the human body is connected. An IT-Band injury can lead to other injuries over time if not treated properly. For example, the knee of your opposite leg may start hurting due to increased strain on it while you are trying to walk. On-going pain in this area could potentially result in long term (chronic) knee pain.

You may also over-strain your hip or lower back on the opposite, healthy side because you will automatically put more weight on your non-injured side to cope with everyday activities. When you experience pain on the opposite side of your body, this is something called "over compensation" pain.

Over time you may also change the way that you walk when your hip is hurting. If you change the way that you walk, how you get in and out of a car or even the way you climb a flight of stairs you may irritate your lower back. Usually a hip injury will happen on the dominant side (if you are right handed, this would be your right hip). When this happens there is a higher risk that you will over-strain your weaker side that is compensating for your injury.

On-going injury, chronic conditions and over compensation pain are all reasons why it is important that you remain proactive in your recovery. This is why it's also critical to completely heal your hip before returning to activity. If you don't focus on healing your injury quickly and completely you run the risk of interrupting your lifestyle in a major way.

The longer your injury endures, the greater the risk of running into serious overcompensation injuries.

To Stop Re-Injury & Reduce the Risk of a More Serious Overcompensation Injury, You Need to Heal Quickly & Completely!

Anyone in need of rapid recovery and complete healing must consider a comprehensive treatment plan that includes an effective means to minimize swelling and inflammation yet also stimulate healing and tissue elasticity. We have found no better set of tools that can be used at home than this:

A Conservative Home Treatment Protocol Many Of Our Clients Found Beneficial:

  • A Cold Compress or Ice Pack to reduce inflammation of the soft tissue injury (as soon as possible).
  • A Back/Hip TShellz Wrap to increase Blood-flow to the hip area.
  • MendMeShop Arnica Pain Cream for temporary relief of pain due to sore muscles and joints.
  • An Exercise & Stretching Plan to prevent muscle atrophy and shortened tendons. A proper plan will increase elasticity and strengthen the muscles, ligaments and tendons of the hip.

Conservative treatment tools just like these have been used successfully by thousands of soft tissue injury sufferers - just like you.




T•Shellz Wrap® = Greatly Increased Blood Flow in Your Hip

 

We believe the use of T•Shellz Wraps® for effective pain relief and inflammation control of soft tissue injuries is one of the most under-utilized home treatment options available on the market today. We have client after client that have tried many options out there and have been amazed at how effective and fast the TShellz Wrap treatment can relieve pain and increase blood flow in soft tissue.

v

Not only does the incorporation of conservative treatments (such as the use of a Cold Compress or Ice Pack and the T•Shellz Wrap®) assist in the body's recovery process, but it also contributes to minimizing risk of long term complications. Pain, lack of mobility, tendinosis, or a complete tendon rupture are some of the more common long term complications that can occur when hip tendinitis, sciatica, IT Band syndrome, tendon tears, and other injuries go untreated. By treating your hip properly with a doctor recommended home conservative treatment protocol (including a stretching regimen), you can minimize proliferation of scar tissue while maintaining flexibility and strong blood flow in the area. This will help reduce the risk of chronic problems in the future.

Scar Tissue

During the healing process and especially in surgery, scar tissue builds on injured soft tissue. This scar tissue can cause the tendon and bursa to thicken, decreasing the area in the acetabulum space (in the hip joint) and increasing the potential for impingements (eg. snapping hip).

In addition, scar tissue can bind the tendons, muscles and ligaments together within the joint capsule; the inflexible scar tissue limits movement of these tendons and ligaments that were once elastic and allowed the hip its large range of motion. As a result, movement of the entire joint is limited making it difficult to climb stairs or bend down to get into a car. If left untreated, the hip may 'freeze' , making movement nearly impossible without some form of external assistance. At the very least, scar tissue leaves soft tissue weaker, leaving your hip at greater risk of further deterioration and possible tearing.

Shortened muscles and tendons due to lack of use is a real problem during recovery. When you start to feel better and use the joint, the shortened muscles and tendons get over-strained, introducing small microtears. These microtears start the formation of scar tissue, which unlike muscle or tendon, is completely inflexible. Once there is scar tissue in there, the tears will continue; eventually you've got a serious problem with a joint that does not flex as much as it did before and this becomes a chronic condition. You'll know you have scar tissue when you get shooting pain if you stretch your joint too far... it is something that physical therapist's often deal with (ie. shoulder manipulation).

To prevent this, we recommend using the TShellz Wrap before undertaking any significant activity, as warming treatments are intended to increase the flexibility of muscles, tendons and ligaments. This is actually why we advise plantar fasciitis sufferers to treat themselves with a Plantar TShellz Wrap first thing in the morning before walking (walking stresses the plantar ligament on the bottom of the foot). After treatment, the plantar ligament is more flexible and can handle higher walking stresses before it starts to micro-tear. The ability for soft tissue to stretch further before micro-tearing will allow you to gently stretch your recovering joint without re-injuring it yet again. This is a huge boon for recovery. We also highly advise the TShellz Wrap it for post surgery recovery, as surgery will always introduce scar tissue and TShellz Wrap treatments in post-op recovery will reduce scar tissue growth, increase joint flexibility and get you back on your feet faster.

During your recovery, you may have to modify and/or eliminate any activities that cause pain or discomfort in your injured area until your pain and inflammation settle, and you gain more mobility and strength in your hip. The more diligent you are with your treatment and rehabilitation, the faster you will see successful results!

Remember: We recommend that you consult your doctor and/or physiotherapist before using any of our outstanding products, to make sure they're right for you and your condition.



Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is a beneficial way to help decrease pain in the soft tissues, restore atrophied muscles and improve hip strength and mobility. The type of physical therapy and the duration will be dependent on your injury.

conservative treatments to improve hip range of motion

Once your pain starts to diminish, a physiotherapist can set up an individualized hip strengthening and stretching exercise program for you to perform at home or in the gym. This will be based on your needs and abilities, and will help you return to performing your normal routines.

Individuals will often lift weights on their own, to try and build up their hip strength. However, in doing so, they can do more damage to their hip. It is extremely important to strengthen your muscles properly, as they may have weakened during the period of non-use. A trained therapist will help to ensure your rehabilitation process is effective. For fast and effective results, use a Cold Compress or Ice Pack to deal with initial swelling, then a Back/Hip T•Shellz Wrap® in conjunction with your physical therapy and exercise program.



Anti-Inflammatory Medication

The use of NSAIDs can be greatly reduced with the use of cold

NSAIDs (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) can be used if required to help manage your pain and inflammation. However, these aren't recommended for long term use, as they can cause gastrointestinal difficulties. Some health professionals have also recommended natural supplements such as glucosamine, MSM or hyaluronic acid to help strengthen the injured tissue.

The use of a Cold Compress or Ice Pack can greatly reduce, if not eliminate, the need for NSAIDs. The use of Cold and compression is a time tested, natural way to reduce your pain and inflammation.

Once the initial swelling has decreased, you can provide pain relief and improve your hip function by using an T•Shellz Wrap® to increase the blood flow to the area. Gentle massage around the injured area or small hip movements (if not painful) will also help increase blood flow, oxygen and nutrients and will prevent stiffness.

Doctors and Surgeons are always improving the techniques used in surgery, and results from surgery now are much more positive than they were in the past. However, all surgeries introduce scar tissue, and recovery from hip surgery can be disappointing and take longer than anticipated.

If you do wind up getting surgery, know that rehabilitation at-home while attending regular physical therapy or doctor appointments is vital for your overall recovery.

Hip TShellz Wrap boost blood flow

The more consistent you work at enhancing blood flow to surgically repaired soft tissue, the more consistent the healing process will be. Nourishing the tissues will more oxygen and nutrients (which are carried through the blood stream) will give the body a better ability to produce new, healthy collagen. In effect, you will help the body produce stronger tissues while potentially reducing the number of setbacks that can occur following surgical procedures.



The Key Point To Keep in Mind When Treating Your Hip Injury

Make Sure That Complete Healing is Your #1 Goal

Back/Hip T•Shellz Wrap x-ray back

We all know that if the injury was healed, the pain would go away but what about the opposite situation? If the pain is gone, does that mean the injury is better? Unfortunately, this is not always true.

Too many people only focus on suppressing pain symptoms while providing less attention to the true healing aspects of the body. Experiencing less pain, while obviously a good short-term goal, never equates to underlying healing. Scar tissue can remain for months after one gets to a point of being relatively pain-free. However, as long the weak and brittle scar tissue remains, you are susceptible to re-injury or re-aggravation. Certain motions or movements can cause the weaker tissue to easily tear - resulting in some reversal of the recovery up until that point.

This is why we recommend for people to continue with their doctor or therapist recommended exercises and to continue with mild treatments of the T•Shellz Wrap® for a period of time - to better ensure long term healthy tissue.

Ongoing treatments to enhance circulation will soothe, relax and generally allow your body to maintain good health in soft tissue . Hip T•Shellz treatments are also intended to warm the treatment area; when heat is applied to soft tissue it is known to become more flexible and extensible. The more extensible soft tissues is, the less likely it is to strain or sprain.

Typically, people use the T•Shellz Wrap® before bed, upon awakening (or not long after) and one other time during the day when the opportunity presents itself. For people in an office setting, many will use the device at work (as it can be worn over clothing). For others, they will use the device an our or two after work.

A Cold Compress or Ice Pack is primarily used following activity that stresses the injured tissues (following work, after a sports activity, or just suffering a general re-injury). This is done to reduce inflammation and to minimize tissue damage. Treatments are 15 to 20 minutes in duration.
