More Hamstring Injury Facts:

Oral Medications can mask the pain but do not aid in the healing of a Hamstring muscle injury. Anti-inflammatories and Pain killers can cause Hamstring muscle related injuries to worsen.


One out of three athletes who sustain an initial hamstring injury will reinjure their hamstring within a year of returning to play. It is theorized that weakness in the hamstring muscle due to incomplete or improper (scar tissue) healing will often cause a hamstring re-injury.


A Grade 1 Hamstring Injury is a mild strain with a few torn muscle fibers in the hamstring.


A Grade 2 Hamstring Injury is a moderate strain and the patient shows a definite loss in strength.


A Grade 3 Hamstring Injury is a complete tear of the hamstring muscles.


10% to 23% of all acute soccer injuries are typically hamstring tears and hamstring strains (also known as strain injuries of the posterior thigh).


A complete tear of the Hamstring will require reattachment surgery. There is no avoidance of this.

Possible Reasons for High Rates of Hamstring Injury:

Timing and Coordination problems during a running sprint - specifically during the time the back leg is off the ground and pulled forward (to place on ground in front of you).


Running stride is too long (overstride), or the sway in the run is significant (causing more stress on the hamstring).


An Improperly healed hamstring injury will predispose you to another hamstring injury.


Lack of stiffness in the hamstring muscle will increase your chance of a strain when your feet are contacting the ground in a run. (inability to absorb enough shock)


Improper warm-up before exercise.


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


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

 



Use Your Body's Natural Healing System
to Treat Your Hamstring Injury!


Circulation Boost & Why You Need It

Your body can heal itself! In fact, your body started healing itself the moment you injured your hamstring and it's the blood in your body that makes it all happen.

Your blood is the transport mechanism for everything that's good inside you. It carries oxygen, nutrients and water. Proper blood flow to your leg is essential for healing. Unfortunately, when you injure your hamstring, you have reduced muscle mobility so you stop moving and the swelling sets in. That means your vital blood flow can be reduced to a trickle!

Swelling, inflammation and lack of leg/knee movement reduce the flow of blood to your injury. If you are moving your injured muscle around you run a risk of increasing the severity of the injury via muscle strain. If there has been some healing, you could re-injure the muscle tissue all over again.

Blood Flow - the natural healing process in your body - needs assistance for such injuries because blood flow is greatly restricted when you are immobile. When treating a hamstring injury or really any type of soft tissue injury (ie. tendonitis, spasm, tears, hamstring surgical recovery), an effective treatment will increase blood flow to the injury while the joint is immobile. This increase in blood flow will accelerate the body's own ability to heal itself.

There are a LOT of people out there that do not understand how effective A TShellz Wrap really is. Once initial swelling from the injury is reduced by using a Cold Compress or Ice Pack - this is where the Circulation Boost effect from a Leg TShellz Wrap really starts to shine!


The MISSING Piece of the Puzzle....
where SO MANY get it WRONG!

Swelling and inflammation is your body responding to an injury. A lot of pain will probably disappear as the swelling disappears, and many people make the wrong assumption that their hamstring injury must be healing as most of the pain is gone. Once you have reduced the swelling with cold, your injury is still there.

This is a critical time! Once the inflammation is gone it may feel like you can return to your regular sports, hobbies, exercise or other activities - but your hamstring is in a weakened state, unstable, and still injured. Even the slightest movement or twist in the wrong direction can worsen your injury and increase the swelling yet again. Most "weekend warriors" and amateur athletes will start going back to what they were doing before they injured their hamstring, and that is where they get it wrong. Medical professionals know that the injury is still there even if the pain is gone.

Building strong healthy tissue is part of the healing process and needs to be dealt with first! You can help your tissue during this healing process by increasing localized blood flow with a Leg T•Shellz Wrap®.

With regular use of the TShellz Wrap:

  • Your pain will be reduced.
  • Due to increased blood flow, soft tissue in the area will recover at an accelerated rate.
  • The range of motion in the treatment area will increase *

No matter what has caused your hamstring injury, it's important to reduce pain, swelling and inflammation as soon as possible. Getting rid of your swelling is the 1st, most important, step in your recovery process. Getting rid of swelling will reduce the amount of tissue damage happening to your leg and open up the blood vessels in your soft tissue so your muscles and tendons can receive more blood flow.

Increasing blood flow is then a priority to bring in all the essential elements needed for natural healing within your own body. An increased blood flow is key as this maximizes the bodys ability to self heal. An increase in blood flow accompanied with heat in soft tissue is known to help increase range of motion, and improve the flexibility of soft tissue - ensuring that the soft tissue recovery period does not last years.


The Leg/Arm T•Shellz Wrap® = Accelerated Blood Flow

Injured Leg Blood Circulation

If you want to heal quickly, you need to keep your blood moving and that's where the T•Shellz Wrap® comes in.

What is the T•Shellz Wrap®? It's a substantial increase in the flow of blood to your injured leg without the need to exercise your already damaged hamstring muscle.

Have you seen what happens when you add water to a flower wilted from drought? In essence, your injured hamstring is much like a "wilted" flower; your body wants to heal its injury, but needs lots of nutrients to do it. Blood brings new life to your tissue by delivering healing nutrients and oxygen that are vital for growth and repair. An increased blood flow is more effective at carrying away toxins and waste - this all adds up to increased capability of your body to heal soft tissue. Without a good supply of blood, your hamstring simply won't heal properly.

In order to get maximum blood flow to your hamstring, you need to help your body stimulate blood flow. A T•Shellz Wrap® is the fast, easy and pain-free way to increase blood flow. It is a key part of a home conservative treatment plan.

During a treatment and for some time after, tissue in the treatment area will experience increased blood flow even though your body is at rest.

Within moments of applying a T•Shellz Wrap® to your leg, you will feel a mild heat sensation. From this, you will receive immediate healing benefits due to increased blood flow around damaged soft tissue in the treatment area. During a treatment, and for quite some time after you finish, the treated area will experience increased blood flow even though your body is at rest. It's a soothing sensation and extremely effective.

Increased Blood Circulation Accelerates the Bodys Healing Rate of Soft Tissue


How A T•Shellz Wrap® Works

A Leg/Arm T•Shellz Wrap® is purely a Circulatory Boost workhorse! It is why we made them. It is why we made them. They are specifically intended for boosting blood flow, reducing inflammation and relieving pain from strained, spasming or damaged soft tissue (muscles, bursae, tendons, etc). Based on results from past clients, we are confident that they will be very beneficial for most of our future customers.

T•Shellz Wraps® contain an Energy Pad which is very pliable and will conform pretty much anywhere around the leg or arm. The Energy Pad emits a uniform wave of energy over the entire treatment area. This energy travels into soft tissue, stimulating blood flow that your body requires to help heal your injury. Blood flow is crucial to the healing process.

Increased Blood Flow = More Oxygen, More Nutrients and Less Toxins = Faster Healing

The unit plugs into a wall outlet to get its power. It has a special signal controller which can be set for 3 different power levels of application (3=High, 2=Medium, 1=Low). The cord is long enough that you can sit or lie comfortably and watch TV, read or surf the net while you're using it.


T•Shellz Wraps® - The Secret to Accelerated Blood Flow

Increase blood flow with a T•Shellz heat wrap

We believe the use of T•Shellz Wraps® for boosting blood flow in the area of application 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 localized blood flow in the treatment area.

The TShellz Wraps significantly increase bloodflow to tissue in the treatment area - period. With regular use of the Leg/Arm TShellz Wrap:

  • Your pain will be reduced*.
  • With increased blood flow, soft tissue in the area will recover at an accelerated rate*.
  • Due to increased warmth in soft tissue, the corresponding joint will have a larger range of motion and increased extensibility of collagen tissue*. This should translate into a reduced rate of injury occurrance as soft tissue becomes more flexible.
    (*Chapter 9 of "Therapeutic Heat and Cold", 4th edition. (amazon.com link - Ed. Justus F. Lehmann, M.D., Williams, and Wilkin)

Attach the T•Shellz Wrap® around your leg, plug it in and let the Energy Pad do the work!


Why is our Circulatory Boost a Plug-In Unit and not Battery Powered?

We field a lot of calls from our customers that want to know why our T•Shellz Wraps® don't come with a battery powered option. The simple answer is that our T•Shellz Wraps® use a lot of power. We tried looking at batteries, but we found that a high capacity (and high cost) lithium-ion battery would last barely long enough for an adequate treatment time - and then it would need to be recharged. The amount of power that our wrap uses over such a short span of time should really drive home the fact that our T•Shellz Wraps® are real, industrial strength treatment devices; currently, for us to provide a battery option for our wraps we would have to reduce the level of output (ie. treatment power) emitted from the wrap. The lower the energy output, the less effective the device will be which is why our TShellz Wrap units are plug-in units only.

Leg TShellz Wrap boost blood flow hamstring

When treating a hamstring with hot or cold treatments there are a couple of points to consider. Take breaks between ice pack treatments to ensure you do not freeze your skin - this rarely happens but it is important to look out for. To heal fast we need the right temperature at the right time. Consistent conservative home treatments every day (using ice packs to minimize swelling at onset of injury or during flare ups and T•Shellz Wrap® applications preceding exercise/stretching routines - assigned by your PT) will greatly increase your chances of a complete recovery.

Scar Tissue & Re-Injury


Do you have a strained, sprained, pulled, torn, cramped or spasming hamstring muscle that's painful, sore and always seems to get re-injured? This could be a sign that you have a lot of scar tissue in your hamstring. The growth of scar tissue is ultimately what causes stiffening in your muscle, restricting movement and flexibility.

During the healing process your body will fill in tears in your hamstring 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 strain or tear.

Hamstring Muscle tears heal with scar tissue, restricting movement and causing pain and stiffness.

Scar tissue is one of the MAIN reasons why your hamstring injury just hasn't healed. Even when the inflammation is gone, scar tissue will still be there to wreak havoc on the elasticity of your hamstring and range of motion. On-going issues with scar tissue can even result in a worsening muscle tear, a full rupture, related soft tissue injuries to nearby tendons or ligaments, hip & knee joint instability, or surgery may be the only solution.

Scar tissue will form fast to deal with a strain, pull or tear to your hamstring, 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 injury in a cluttered, messy and jumbled up way.

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

Scar tissue is a major problem especially when it comes to a hamstring injury - causing your injury to take months or even YEARS to completely heal!


Time is the only way for your hamstring injury to truly heal, but by applying a conservative treatment protocol at home (rest, cold compression, an T•Shellz Wrap®, stretching routine), you can boost your body's soft tissue healing process, reduce scar tissue growth, reduce your risk of re-injury, reduce your risk of worsening the existing injury, and reduce the risk of secondary injury by overcompensation (ie. overtaxing your hip and left knee because of a painful pull in your right hamstring).


You can reduce scar tissue growth and inhibit further injury to your hamstring by increasing heat and blood flow to the damaged area. Treating yourself with a Leg T•Shellz Wrap® is the easiest and most effective way to help improve Range of Motion, reduce pain in the area, reduce risk of worsening the injury while helping minimize the growth of stubborn scar tissue.

When applied before activity or work, the T•Shellz Wrap® will also relax and lengthen your soft tissue - this will improve your range of motion and help prevent atrophy (wasting away) of your injured hamstring.

Overall, continued treatment with the Leg/Arm TShellz Wrap is intended to relax and lengthen soft tissue; this helps improve range of motion while combatting atrophy (wasting away) of the tendons and ligaments in the area. The TShellz Wrap is intended to reduce the chance of degenerative conditions by maximizing blood flow where it's needed most, preventing further damage, and dealing with scar tissue.


So, if you're really looking for the best home treatment options to reduce inflammation, increase range of motion and treat the source of pain quickly: a conservative treatment protocol including a Cold Compress or Ice Pack, a T•Shellz Wrap® and a targeted stretch/exercise routine (assigned by your physician or PT) are what you need. This combined approach is, in our opinion, the best home based approach to maximizing your soft tissue injury recovery process.


When to use a Cold Compress or Ice Pack:

  • 24 to 72 hours after your initial injury or when you first notice pain and swelling to stop tissue damage, relieve pain, and decrease swelling.
  • After exercise, workouts or activity of any kind to prevent re-injury.
  • Before and after surgery during rehabilitation to control pre and post-surgery pain and swelling.
  • Anytime you feel your leg or arm has been over-extended, over-worked, twisted, strained or sprained causing pain and swelling.
  • Anytime you have swelling, sharp throbbing pain or inflammation.
  • Any other situation where you need to draw the pain and inflammation out of your leg.

When to use a Leg-Arm TShellz Wrap:

  • When the swelling is down (usually after applying cold compression to the injury over 24 to 48 hr period).
  • BEFORE getting out of bed in the morning. BEFORE going to bed at night.
  • BEFORE exercise, workouts or activity of any kind to increase elasticity of leg ligaments,muscles & tendons and decrease chance of re-injury.
  • AFTER surgery (once the skin wound has healed over) to increase blood flow in the area and minimize scar tissue growth at the surgery location.
  • Anytime BEFORE you feel you might undertake activity that will put significant strain on the injury area.

Recovery from Hamstring Surgery (or any other soft tissue surgery)

For Post-Surgery Recovery, cold is recommended by doctors to treat your pain in a natural, non-addictive way and to reduce swelling.

After the incision site has healed and initial inflammation has reduced, use our TShellz Wraps to stimulate blood flow in the area. Using the TShellz Wrap as soon as pain & swelling has reduced following your surgery will help minimize scar tissue growth in the leg that forms as you heal. Treating scar tissue is arguably the most important step following surgery, especially in a muscle or tendon as scar tissue growth will directly impact their ability to extend and contract.

Leaving post-surgery scar tissue untreated can lead to stiffness, chronic pain, osteoarthritis or other chronic conditions. You're more likely to end up with another injury if you choose not to actively treat the scar tissue that develops in your leg - this is why pretty much all post surgery recoveries involve visit to the physio clinic. Circulatory Boost encourages more oxygen and nutrients to flow to the area to help your body in its recovery process. An increase in blood flow should also help improve the strength of soft tissue in the area.
