Dear MendMeShop,

I had a very painful torn plantar fascia where it inserts into the heal. Basically I twisted my foot coming down the steps and then had to downsize from a larger house to a smaller house. I was on my feet everyday after work for a month to move which made the tear worse. Then I got misdiagnosed by my doctor who ordered no testing.. I was in agony until I found the mend me shop website. I ordered the plantar inferno wrap and have used it religiously every morning and evening and noticed a gradual improvement immediately. It also feels nice and toasty on my foot. I did finally go to the podiatrist and was in a CAM Boot for 10 weeks, along with my inferno wrap use. I know that the inferno wrap works because I felt no improvement until I started using it. I highly recommend this product for anyone suffering from plantar fascia pain or injury. I would say I am about 80% healed and continue to use this great product--and my physical therapist approves and has encouraged me to continue to use the product.

Acute Tendonitis

If someone does a physical activity to excess they strain the muscle(s) that was/are overused. This can happen to a retired person working in their garden too hard, or to a well-trained athlete who is pushing themselves too hard. This problem is commonly seen in the "weekend warrior" athlete who sits at a desk all week and then plays softball or tennis all day on the weekend. The resultant muscle strain (mild tear) creates inflammation and pain. This strain usually occurs near the end of the muscle where it attaches to a bone or blends into its tendon, creating a condition known as acute tendinitis. This condition could also be created if the muscle is strained from trauma such as a fall or misstep.

Cold Compression Wrap - treating your pain quickly and easily, from MendMeShop.

When treating acute tendinitis rest the area, apply ice for 10-20 minutes at a time for at least 3 times a day. Do this to the injured area for the first day to 3 days. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy(BFST) may be used after the acute swelling is improved and rest prevents further muscle injury. Advanced Cold Compression Therapy will reduces initial inflammation and swelling and the BFST circulates blood through the area to speed the healing process. This can be further helped by the use of ultrasound applications over the affected area, as it reduces swelling quickly and increases blood flow to the area. If the patient gradually starting flexing and mobilising the area, the muscle would probably heal fine.

Success Stories

However, this is not what typical person does; they may ice once or twice and rest a bit, but most often just take some Advil or Tylenol and continue on with their normal activities. If the strain was minor, their body may be able to heal the muscle fibers normally. Unfortunately, this is not the usual result because the injured muscle is being used instead of rested. Because of the stress on the muscle, their body heals the injured muscle fibers by binding them together with fibrotic adhesions or scar tissue. This is done in an attempt to prevent further damage to the injured area. It is a normal protective response of their body.

Freezie Wrap™ Advanced Cold Compression Therapy
Control Your Pain and Swelling Naturally

When an injury occurs, applying a Freezie Wrap for advanced cold compression therapy reduces the initial inflammation, which is key to pain relief and healing. After the initial stages of swelling have been controlled, it is beneficial to apply Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy(BFST) to the area. BFST promotes blood flow, which will flush the the cellular waste from the injured tissues, while providing nutrients to the torn tissues.

Freezie Wrap - Advanced Cold Compression Therapy

Our Freezie Wraps and Inferno Wraps are state of the art! The high quality plush neoprene design allows for a tighter and more comfortable fit for optimized compression therapy. It is designed specifically to mold to the unique curvatures of the foot and ankle to deliver targeted relief and even energy waves or cold. The flexible, removable gel packs in the Freezie Wraps enable you to position the cold exactly where you want it. Unlike other wraps on the market, the stay-soft gel conforms to your Achilles. When pressure is applied, this specifically formulated, non-toxic gel will not migrate away from the injured site, which is a common issue with gel packs. Put simply, when you apply the wrap to your body, the gel is forced to stay in place - over your injured area. There is nothing else available like it!

Our Freezie Wraps for Cold Compression Therapy fit properly for convenient use at home, the office or on the court or field.

MendMeShop Therapeutic Ultrasound
Reduce Scar Tissue and Heal

Along with our Freezie Wraps, your injured tendon can be further helped with the use of ultrasound over the affected area, reducing swelling quickly and increasing blood flow to the area.

Buy MendMeShop Ultrasound

The trick to any tendon injury is getting it to heal with minimal scar tissue formation and with as much realignment of tendon fibers as possible - something the Inferno Wrap™ and Ultrasound are great at! Even with optimum healing, there is always less elasticity in a previously injured tendon. The trick is to make sure you heal the best you can - that way your chance of re-injury is much lower than average.

Therapeutic combos from MendMeShop provide you with the tools necessary to relieve the pain of tendonitis and dramatically speed healing. A tendonitis injury is a race against time. The faster and more efficiently you heal your tendons, the less chance there is for re-injury. The tendons are tough dense tissues that normally receive very little blood flow. This is largely why tendon injuries take so long to heal. When using and Inferno Wrap™ or ultrasound, the energy waves stimulate blood flow, which speeds up healing and clears away the inflammation causing the pain.

Ultrasound therapy is also a helpful tool for pain prevention of an injured ankle, and having a portable ultrasound device at home can be a powerful and convenient treatment tool. If you have symptoms or are recovering from an injured achilles tendon, using ultrasound on a regular basis before your activity or throughout the day will help relax your muscles, tendons and tissues, diminish pain and inflammation, soften scar tissue and contribute greatly to healing!

Ultrasound waves stimulate blood flow to speed healing and clear away the inflammation causing the pain. As well, our medicated gel delivers additional pain relieving and anti-inflammatory ingredients directly into the ankle, providing even more relief.

Deep Tissue Therapeutic Inferno Wraps
Innovative Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™ (BFST™)

During normal use, activity promotes blood flow through our body. Our body responds to the activity by sending oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the tissue. When we are at rest, the blood flow to your ankle is greatly reduced. But, when your ankle is injured, it really needs the blood flow to promote the healing process. Since you can't work your ankle without danger of further injury, you need to stimulate the blood flow another way. Our innovative Inferno Wraps give you the best Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™ available. Inferno creates special energy waves that stimulate blood flow by penetrating through the outer layers of your ankle. The energy waves reach deep into your muscles, tendons and cartilage, reducing your pain as they heal the inner tissue.

MendMeShop Inferno Wrap

The Inferno Wrap is revolutionary. It's soft flexible design molds itself to the contours of your body, providing you with a perfectly fitted, easy-to-use Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™ tool. You have to try one to appreciate the ease and comfort. The Inferno Ankle Wrap is made of durable, medical-grade neoprene. It stays in place, is flexible and contours to the shape of your foot. The strategically placed pocket holds the Energy Web™ component around your injury and focuses the soothing and healing energy waves where you need it, at your damaged tissue. An Inferno Ankle Wrap gives you unparalleled blood flow stimulation energy. You simply won't find a comparable product on the market. Other therapy products can not come close to offering the comfortable, contoured fit and targeted energy treatment an Inferno Wrap provides.

You will feel a soothing, deep penetrating warmth as your Inferno Wrap works to stimulate your blood flow, we guarantee it. As your ankle heals, this sensation lessens so you know it's working! You can really feel the difference as you heal. Now you can reduce your pain and heal your ankle anywhere with the comfortable, light weight Inferno Ankle Wrap.

Save on Ultrasound & Inferno Combo
Natural Healing with MendMeShop ultrasound and inferno wrap

Inferno Wraps are perfectly safe, natural, and very effective. In fact, when there are concerns over safety that may restrict the use of ultrasound, an Inferno Wrap is often still a viable solution.

While the active Energy Web™ stimulates blood flow, the snug, formed neoprene wrap provides gentle pressure to control inflammation while supporting your injured ankle. Your ankle feels warm and comfortable throughout the treatment. The unit is light weight and portable with a plug in adapter that you can use at home, at work, or anywhere.

Like everything we sell, our Inferno Wraps are the best quality products you will find anywhere. And like all our products, we guarantee our Inferno Wraps with our 60 day money back guarantee. If for any reason you're not happy with any product you purchase in our shop, you can send it back for a full refund.

How to Order

Remember, a common mistake is that once we start feeling a little better, we often forget that our ankle and tendons may still be injured or weak. This time in particular is when almost everyone stops going to therapy and stops nurturing their still injured ankle. With Inferno Wraps or MendMeShop ultrasound, even after the pain is gone, you can continue to treat your Achilles injury and complete the healing process. Healing completely is critical to avoid re-injury. Who wants to have chronic pain? No one wants to go through surgery. So treat your tendons completely and avoid these terrible outcomes.

Dear MendMeShop,

I have owned the elbow Inferno Wrap for over a year now. I have had tennis elbow in both elbows for over 15 years. After any activity using either arm, both elbows ache...heavily. About 15 months ago, the tennis elbow got so bad in my left arm I had to finally go under the knife for torn tendons both in my elbow and my bicep. I could not even extend my arm while sleeping and the gym was a FAR fetched memory. The process from the first doctor's appointment to the actual operating table took about 4 months. I was also told the recovery would be about 3 months and not fully recovered from the tears for a full year. I was informed that no matter what I did, I would always have this inflammation in my elbow and I needed something to give. Either my activity level, including the gym, would have to be cut down drastically, or I had to find a way to get the inflammation down. I am allergic to all anti-inflammatories and NSAIDS. This is where my researched turned up the Inferno Wrap. As you can imagine, I have tried all sorts of heating pads, cooling pads, ice therapy, and months of physical therapy. I believe I even found the Mend Me Shop and the Inferno Wrap while looking for something along the heating and cooling pad line. My immediate thought was why are these so expensive? What makes them so special? I have to say that initially, I took a chance because I had no other option for relief. The day the Inferno Wrap arrived, I knew I had something I had not had access to before. You can tell IMMEDIATELY tell after turning this on that is is working DEEP into the tissue. The wrap does get warm, but in NO WAY is this a heating pad. THIS IS THE ONLY THING THAT PROVIDED AND CONTINUES TO PROVIDE ME RELIEF. I have not dialed down my activity level. When my elbows ache, the Inferno Wrap goes on, and within one 20 minute treatment, the ache is gone. Believe me when I say I have been looking for this for 15 years steady. I have since recommended to EVERYONE I know the Inferno Wrap, and have purchased one for my back, which works just as well, as expected. This is a product that works. This is a product that is backed by good customer service. This is a product that is worth EVERY PENNY. Knowing what I know now, buying the Inferno Wrap was no chance, but a miracle and nothing less.
