Dear MendMeShop,

I purchased the Inferno Knee Wrap and I cannot tell you how much I love this product. I have a misalignment in my back and big toe of my right foot - which caused my left knee to swell. I used the Inferno on my knee and it is now fully healed. Keep these wonderful products coming. You saved me from a possible knee surgery! Thank you Mendmeshop - many times over!

Quadriceps Tendonitis (One of Three Type of Knee Tendonitis)

What is it?

Quadriceps Tendon

The quadriceps tendon is part of the extensor mechanism of the knee. This mechanism consists of the quadriceps muscle group, quadriceps tendon, patella, patellar retinaculum, patellar ligament and various soft tissue in the area. In the United States, knee injuries occur in more than 3 million people every year. Chronic anterior knee pain is common and often is associated with patellar malalignment (an imbalance of patellar posture) and abnormal patellar tracking (abnormal movement of the patella when flexing the knee, commonly associated with anterior knee pain and osteoarthritis).

Quadriceps Tendonitis affects the patellar tendon just above the kneecap area. This condition is the painful degeneration of the inside of the quadriceps tendon above the kneecap. A person experiencing quadriceps tendonitis will have particular pain straightening the lower leg, or decelerating when walking. The major point of pain coming from above the kneecap. Occasionally other conditions may be associated with quadriceps tendonitis including diabetes, gout, para-hypothyroidism. Other conditions which can be a cause of anterior knee pain are commonly confused with quadriceps tendonitis. These conditions include patellar tendonitis, synovial plicae, chondromalacia, patello-femoral subluxation and hyper-pressure, fat pad impingement or Hoffa's syndrome and patello-femoral arthritis.

What do I do about it?

When treating tendonitis of the quadricep, rest the area, expecially avoid the particular activity that produced the condition. Anti-inflammatory medication, ultrasound treatment, regular ice, stretching and physiotherapy are all helpful. An ultrasound application over the affected area, will reduce swelling quickly and increase blood flow to the area - increasing the healing rate of the tendon.

If the strain was minor, their body may be able to heal the tendon fibers normally. Unfortunately, this is not the usual result because the injured tendon is being used instead of rested. Because of the stress on the tendon, their body heals the injured quadricep tendon 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.

Success

To prevent this the patient should apply ultrasound treatment on the area up to three times daily. Ultrasonic energy will naturally "work" the tendon, increasing its flexibily while softening and breaking down scar tissue - which is not something you want in your tendon. Scar tissue is inflexible (non-elastic), and can quickly lead to reinjury of the tendon later down the road.

Treatments

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.


Dear MendMeShop.com,

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.

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 am treating plantar fasciitis and I am a professional boxer. We do a lot of running and jumping rope, which is all very demanding on my feet. I've tried orthotics and cortisone injections and none gave me the relief i have with the aidmyplantar.com products! I had searched online for an alternative. The best part is no co-pay every time I treat myself with these products. You can have relief from pain in your feet and your wallet. brianmintoboxing.com
