— Rhonda Gillis

HOLY COW!!!!!!

I just wanted to take the opportunity to write you guys and thank you for your amazing Sports Shield!!!

I am a runner who suffered  from chafing until I was introduced to your product this past weekend at the Rock n Roll half marathon in Chicago. I do a 5 or 6 mile run twice a week, and a 10 mile run once a week. I run half marathon just about every month. I have tried lots of products to try to stop the chafing I get along my center bra line, but to no avail. The chafing was so bad, I would be a bloody mess by the end of my races (see pic).

The product I settled on was Glide, because although it didn’t prevent the chafing, it did make it more tolerable. I stopped by your booth at the RNR Expo on Saturday, and inquired about your anti-chafing products. This great guy (I lost his business card), told me he had the perfect product!

 I was skeptical, having tried so many other products, but he assured me his product would beat any product I’ve tried. He gave me a free sample and I went on my way. The next morning when I was getting ready for my half, I decided to go ahead a try Sport Shield out.  HOLY COW!!!!!! Not only did I not have chafing, but I was not even red!  I will forever be your Sports Shield’s biggest supporter & cheerleader! I have told all my running friends about this product!!! IT IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!!!  Thank you so much for ending my chafing problem! I hope to see you all at the Rock N Roll half marathon in Va. Beach over Labor Day weekend so I can buy more of this awesome product! Thank you so much for creating the Sports Shield!!!!!!

SWIMMERS

 Need to have for open water swim.

LOVE IT. I did not notice that I needed this in time for my last race. I borrowed some other brand and I got a terrible rub rash. I will never swim in my wetsuit again without it.

— Tim L. from Minneapolis, MN

 

Better than BodyGlide

Product rolls on nicely, far better than Body Glide. I use this under my wetsuit and lately anytime I swim for long periods in lakes and ocean.

— Carl M. from Fleetwood, PA

 

Great Product!
This product rolls-on easily, and worked all day for my boys, while in the ocean and sand.

RUNNERS

 2Toms friction guard

This product when properly used will save a “pound” of flesh! Works great to protect from chaffing and blisters! A must for serious runners and other sports. Stops foot blisters and raw areas.

Female Runner

I’m a well-endowed runner… I’ve run countless 1/2 marathons, 1 full marathon and am training for my 2nd which means 30-40 miles running/week.

I’ve tried it all (it seems)… I’ve tried the sprays, the glides, the goops, the whatfors and NOTHING has worked. I had raw skin in places I need skin, UNTIL someone recommended 2Toms.

The first time I used it was for a 17-mile run and I closed my eyes to grimace in pain during that first shower but was able to slowly peek and then let out the pent up breath I’d been holding because there WAS NO CHAFE! what!? How can that be!? I almost cried in relief because, well, I was so relieved.

So I’ve recommended this to so many other people I’m thinking about applying to be a sales rep for the company.

HIKERS/BACKPACKERS

Works Great!

I have had a life-long problem with chafing between my thighs while backpacking in hot weather.  This product completely prevented the problem.

The towelettes are easy to use and I was able to use the same towelette over and over for a 3 day trip.  They are also very light which is good for backpacking.The towelettes work by imparting a slippery, silicone like coating that greatly reduces friction between moving parts.

— Daryl from Seattle

Worked Wonderfully

Worked wonderfully.  Solved a life long problem with chafing in my crotch (armpit between my legs).  One towelette lasted for daily use on a 4 day backpacking trip.  Feels very silky…like silicone.

 

DIABETIC INJURY PREVENTION

I’m Diabetic.  Cannot Hurt My Feet. This Truly Works!

This is the real deal! I use this for blisters and can’t believe it works perfectly!

Roll on formula is odorless, colorless, non sticky and it only goes away with soap!
I walk 6 miles daily. The shoes I wear are MBT’s that are bulky and heavy so blisters in certain spots are inevitable.
I’m diabetic and cannot hurt my feet at all!
My heels have paper thin skin and I couldn’t continue sticking Dr.Sholl’s MoleSkin or any type of bandage to protect me from blisters because by the time I remove them I most of the time remove part of my own skin too!
This product is fantastic.  I hope this review helps you make a better purchase!

GENERAL RUBBING & CHAFING USAGE

Great Chub Rub Product!

I use this between my thighs under dresses in the summertime and it’s the best product I’ve used! I only have to reapply every 4 hours or so. Will definitely be purchasing again!

— Rhonda GillisHola! Quería tener la oportunidad de escribirles y agradecerles por su increíble producto Sports Shield!

Hola! Soy una corredora que sufría mucho de roces en la piel hasta que me presentaron  su producto este fin de semana en la media maratón de Rock n Roll en Chicago. Corro entre 5 ó 6 km dos veces por semana, y una carrera de 10 millas una vez a la semana. Corro media maratón casi todos los meses. He probado un montón de productos para tratar de detener el roce que me provoca el sostén cuando corro, pero todo fue en vano. El roce era tan malo, que al final de mis carreras siempre terminaba sangrienta.

El producto con el que me establecí fue Glide, aunque no elimino el roce, ayudaba a que fuera un poco más tolerable. Pasé por su stand en la Expo RNR el sábado, y pregunté acerca de sus productos anti-rozaduras. Este gran tipo (he perdido su tarjeta), me dijo que tenía el producto perfecto!

Como pueden imaginar fui un poco escéptica, ya que en el pasado había probado muchos productos pero nada había ayudado. Pero él me aseguró que su producto le ganaría a cualquier producto que he probado. Él me dio una muestra gratis y continúe con mi camino. A la mañana siguiente, cuando me estaba preparando para mi media maratón, decidí probar Sport Shield. INCREIBLE!!!!!! No sólo no tenia rozaduras, pero ni siquiera mi piel quedo roja después de la carrera! Siempre estaré agradecida con este producto y sere una de sus fieles compradoras y animadoras de Sports Shield! Le he contado sobre este producto a todos mis amigos corredores! ES ABSOLUTAMENTE INCREIBLE!!!!!!Muchas gracias por ayudarme a terminar mi problema con rozaduras! Espero verlos a todos en el medio maratón de Rock N Roll en Virginia Beach el fin de semana de Labor Day para que pueda comprar más de este producto impresionante! Muchas gracias por crear Sport Shield!!!!!!   –          Rhonda Gillis

Producto Necesario para Nadar

SportShield THE MUST HAVE CHAFING PREVENTION FOR JUST ABOUT ANY ACTIVITY

2Toms SportShield

ME ENCANTA! No me di cuenta de que lo necesitaba la última carrera que tuve. Pedí prestado alguna otra marca y me dio un terrible sarpudillo en la piel. Nunca voy a nadar en mi traje de neopreno de nuevo sin él.

– Tim L. de Minneapolis, MN

 Mejor que BodyGlide

Producto se desliza en la piel muy fácilmente, mucho mejor que BodyGlide. Yo lo uso bajo mi traje de neopreno y últimamente cada vez que nado por largos períodos en el lago y el océano, lo uso.

– Carl M. de Fleetwood, PA

 Excelente Producto

Este producto se desliza en la pielcon facilidad, y trabajó todo el día para mis hijos, mientras estaban en el océano y la arena.

– S de NC

CORREDORES

2Toms Ayuda Con La Fricción

Cuando se usa correctamente este producto le ahorrará una “libra” de la carne! Funciona muy bien para protegerlo de rozaduras y ampollas! Imprescindible para los corredores serios y otros deportes. Ayuda a eliminar las ampollas en los pies.

 Corredora

Soy una corredora muy bien dotada… He corrido innumerables media maratones, 1 maratón completa y estoy entrenando para mi segunda maratón  lo que significa correr entre 30 a 40 millas por semana.

Lo he intentado todo.. He intentado los aerosoles, los rodillos, las pomadas, y nada ha funcionado. Tenía la piel abierta en varios lugares que necesito piel, hasta que alguien me recomiendo 2Toms.

La primera vez que lo usé fue para una carrera de 17 millas, y cerré los ojos para hacer una mueca de dolor durante esa primera ducha. Fui capaz de mirar lentamente y luego deje escapar el aliento reprimido que había estado aguantando porque no había rozaduras! qué? ¿Cómo puede ser eso? Casi lloré de alivio porque, me sentía tan aliviada.

Así que lo he recomendado a muchas otras personas, y estoy pensando en aplicar para ser una representante de ventas para la compañía.

– Kristine.

 

EXCURSIONISTAS / MOCHILEROS

Trabaja Muy Bien

He tenido problemas toda mi vida con el roce entre mis muslos mientras ando de mochilero en climas calientes. Este producto previno completamente ese problema.

Las toallitas son fáciles de usar, fui capaz de utilizar la misma toallita una y otra vez durante un viaje de 3 días. Son también muy ligeras que es algo muy bueno para mochileros. Las toallitas funcionan al impartir una silicona resbaladiza, que ayuda a reducir considerablemente la fricción entre las partes móviles.

Daryl from Seattle

 

Funciono De Maravilla

Trabajó maravillosamente. Resolvió un problema que he tenido toda mi vida con el roce en mi entrepierna (axila entre las piernas). Una toallita duró para el uso diario en un viaje de mochilero que duro 4 días. Se siente muy sedoso… como silicona.

 

PREVENCIÓN PARA LESIONES DE DIABETES

Soy diabética. No puedo dañarme los pies. Esto realmente funciona!

Este producto es excelente! Yo lo uso para las ampollas y no puedo creer que funciona perfectamente!

La formula de Rodillo, es sin olor, transparente, y no es pegajosa y sólo desaparece con jabón! Camino 6 millas diariamente. Los zapatos que uso son de MBT que son voluminosos y pesados ​​por lo que ampollas en ciertos lugares es inevitable.

 

EL ROCE GENERAL

Yo lo uso entre mis muslos bajo los vestidos en el verano y es el mejor producto que he usado! Sólo tengo que volver a aplicar cada 4 horas más o menos. Sin duda volvere a comprar otra vez!

 

 

 

 

What Can You Do to Prevent Hip Flexor Pain?

Hip Flexor PainHip flexor pain is a problem experienced by many people who lead active lifestyles. While the pain can be intense, it is manageable in most cases. But what if you could avoid that pain in the first place? Medi-Dyne would like to share some tips that could help keep you from experiencing this type of discomfort. Whether you’re having problems with your hip or you’re experiencing heel pain or plantar fasciitis, we have ways of helping you deal with the pain so that you can stay active.

Why Does This Happen?

If you’re like most people who exercise on a regular basis, you probably overdo it every once in a while. When you run, kick, bike or jump too much, your hip muscles can become inflamed. Hip flexor pain will be inevitable. It can also take place when you have to stop and start suddenly, such as when you’re playing soccer or basketball. Typically, the amount of pain will be small to start and then get worse over time. However, if you have a tear in the muscle you’ll suddenly feel intense pain. You could also feel stiff and find it difficult to lift your knee.

How Can I Keep this from Happening?

One of the best ways you can keep from being a victim of hip flexor pain is by making sure your muscles are thoroughly stretched both before and after your workout. Some of the exercises to consider include:

  • Straight leg raises
  • Knee-to-chest stretches
  • Planks to strengthen your core
  • Quadriceps stretches

Medi-Dyne offers two effective products that can help. The Core Stretch relaxes and elongates tissues to help keep your hip flexors from being strained, while the RangeRoller Pro offers the benefits of massage therapy to reduce discomfort should your muscles become sore. Contact us to learn more about these products, and share any tips that you may have to help avoid hip flexor pain. Also, let us know how you manage any plantar fasciitis issues or heel pain problems while pursuing the activities you love.

Knee Pain: Solutions to Prevent Runner’s Knee

Cho-PatKnee pain is one of the most common symptoms of injury that individuals experience during the summer months. People are generally more active than they have been all year, and are using muscles in ways they have not been for several months.

Runner’s Knee is a term used to describe multiple knee pains and injuries, including; patellofemoral pain syndrome, and chondromalacia of the patella, . Runner’s Knee is the most common overuse injury among runner’s and individuals performing physical activity. Sufferers of runner’s knee usually experience pain around the knee or even behind the kneecap. Runner’s often experience runner’s knee after increasing mileage, and pain increases when running up an incline or down hill.

What are the causes of Runner’s Knee?

  • Overuse: Overstretched tendons, repeated jumping or bending of the knee can cause the tendons in the knee to be inflamed.
  • Trauma to the knee: Contact to the knee or a fall can cause runner’s knee pain.
  • Misalignment: A misalignment of the bones or muscles can cause stress to be placed unevenly, causing pain or even misplacement of the kneecap itself.
  • Weak muscles: Weak Glutes or upper leg muscles (Hamstrings, IT bands, Quads) will often pull at the knee causing knee pain. 
  • Arthritis: Arthritis Can cause aching or throbbing knee pain along the ligaments and tendons within the kneecap. 
  • Flat Feet: Stretching of the muscles or tendons can also be caused by overpronation, fallen arches, or flat feet.

What are solutions for Runner’s Knee pain?

  • Rest and Ice:
    Decrease your mileage or take a break from training. Icing can help with areas of inflammation but overall, rest will give your knee time to recover.
  • Support:
    The Cho-Pat Dual Action Knee Strap provides maximum support above and below the kneecap. It will eliminate knee pain by reducing the force of the quad muscles on the knee. The Dual Action Knee Strap improves tracking of the kneecap mechanism as well as minimizing the possibility for displacement.

Always keep in mind that your body is an interconnective chain. It is important to address an injury when your first experience it, to prevent it from affecting other areas of your body. Find your solution to prevent further injuries!

Tools that are Essential for Long Distance Runners!

Howdy, hope everyone is off to a great week !

The Medi-Dyne Team had the opportunity to connect with Skye Donovan while at the APTA show in San Diego. Skye is an Assistant Professor of Physical Therapy at Marymount University, Orthopedic Certified Specialist, has a B.S. from Ursinus College, M.P.T. from Texas Woman’s University, a Ph.D. from Albert Einstein College of Medicine, as well as a Marathon Coach for Team In Training in Arlington, VA. She is also affiliated with the Rogue Racers! If you are in the area, I would highly recommend getting in contact with Skye if seeking additional information about Physical Therapy or needing advice on preparing for your running adventure! We loved getting to know Skye; she shared information about how to properly train for a marathon; in turn we wanted to share with her the positive benefits of our Pain Prevention Products and how they can benefit the people that she works with everyday!

Skye uses the RangeRoller and StretchRite, both versatile products that are great for long distance runners and patients in PT. Both of these products are great to treat tight muscles and soreness after long runs.

Medi-Dyne: Skye what drew you towards Medi-Dyne products?

Skye: I was not familiar with Medi-Dyne Healthcare Products before the APTA CSM conference in San Diego. I was drawn into the booth by the unique design of your products. I also was very fond of the fact that your products were travels sized and would easily fit in any bag I use while working, and training.

Medi-Dyne: Skye what is your favorite thing about the RangeRoller?

Skye: I especially like the additional Trigger Treads on the RangeRoller; they add areas of increased pressure to tired and sore muscles that the other roller products on the market leave out. I am better equipped to work on trigger points with this design.

Medi-Dyne: What did you find unique about the StretchRite?

Skye: The StretchRite has the nice feature of the grip handles, which on cold days (we train outdoors in all seasons) help save raw hands from chaffing that often occurs with other stretch straps.

Medi-Dyne: Would you recommend Medi-Dyne products to your patients and runners you train?

Skye: I would recommend these products to athletes, I think one of the best features is the size of the products; they can easily fit into suitcases and carry-on bags for athletes who travel. Often time’s athletes travel long distances for endurance events and it is important to be able to keep up their routine both before and after the event.  I have had great success working on quadriceps, hamstrings and ITB tightness with the Range Roller; it has eliminated my need for the foam roller.

The Medi-Dyne team would like to thank Skye for stopping by our booth and letting us get to know her a little better! If you are in Arlington, VA and looking for a PT or training coach I would highly recommend Skye.  She is full of knowledge and has a passion for her work!

CoreStretch with Jennifer Edwards!

Hope everyone has been injury free this past week!
If not let us help you get back to being healthy and ready to tackle your next adventure!

I recently met Jennifer Edwards, the Clinical Director and a Physical Therapist at Apple Physical Therapy. Apple Physical Therapy is an outpatient orthopedic clinic in Washington.  Jennifer has lived a very active lifestyle and has been a Physical Therapist for nearly 13 years.  We asked Jennifer to test our CoreStretch product and give us some feedback.  Jennifer has been using the CoreStretch for about 3 weeks.

Jennifer has suffered from tight muscles and fascia her whole life, and really feels it in her hamstrings, IT band, and lats.

Medi-Dyne: What Medi-Dyne products do you currently use? Had you heard of Medi-Dyne before the CSM?

Jennifer: I particularly liked the Range Roller and the CoreStretch. I had never heard of Medi-Dyne before but had heard of certain products that you carry, such as the Cho-Pat braces and ProStretch.

Medi-Dyne: A few weeks ago we asked you to test the CoreStretch.  What did you think?

Jennifer: I love the Core Stretch, as does my staff.  The majority of my patients really like it as well.  We have been using it as part of a stretching regime after doing a cardio warm-up or after exercises.  We’ve mainly used it while sitting in a chair for hamstrings, Piriformis and lats.

Medi-Dyne: Would you continue to recommend the CoreStretch to patients?

Jennifer: There’s nothing like the CoreStretch so we weren’t using anything like this.  We just had people doing basic stretching without any assistive device.  We have recommended the CoreStretch to patients!

The Medi-Dyne Team would like to thank Jennifer for sharing her thoughts on the CoreStretch and wish Jennifer, her staff, and patients the best of luck in their recovery process!

Shoulder Injury?

The Shoulder is the Most Versatile Joint in the Body! 

Hope everyone’s weekend adventures went great, and were injury free. I spent my weekend in the mountains of El Paso, Texas. El Paso has a very different environment and culture than that of Dallas. It was nice for a breath of fresh air, and fitness. While traveling I make sure to fit in my daily exercise; for me it is essential to stay in a routine, regardless of where I am.

While at the gym I decided I would lift some light weights and target the shoulder area. It was a good thing I improvised and did a few basic stretches to loosen up. The Shoulder is the most versatile joint in the body, which unfortunately with a lot of use, allows for many things to go wrong. Shoulder Injuries are usually due to activities that involve excessive, repetitive, overhead motion.

To prevent shoulder injuries you should focus on flexibility and strength within your shoulder. As well as make sure to warm up and cool down, before and after repetitive activity. The StretchRite is great for an all over body stretch; you can essentially use the StretchRite for any area needing attention. The stretches below are great for increasing flexibility and strength within your shoulder, which will decrease the chance of injury.

Each stretch should be performed two times a day, holding for 15 seconds each.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The CoreStretch is also great for increasing flexibility and strengthening your shoulder.

Many times we forget that the body is an interconnected chain and if you do not take the time to address a problem it is going to cause other muscles to compensate and you’ll personally get to experience the domino effect – the pain will migrate and possibly cause even more pain & injury.

Until next time follow Medi-Dyne on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram for healthy tips and special offers!

Make sure to take the time this week to stretch, and stay injury free!
