Dear MendMeShop,

Have been using the knee wrap for about 5 days & it has actually already made a difference. First, there is a lot less pain when walking and secondly the external knee temperature (feeling by hand- not very scientific) is now almost the same for both knees. When I started with the wrap the right knee was obviously the hotter knee indicating inflammation, I guess. I have been using the wrap three times a day for 20 minutes on and at least two hours off with at least 15 minutes each day on the stationary bike. I'm retired & have the time. The wrap seems really well made which it should considering the price and it is large enough to fit the largest knee. I also like the three temperature levels and certainly the built in 20 minute shut off.

Heal Your Bursa: Combine Ultrasound and
Thermal Wrap Home Therapies!

A bursa is a closed, fluid-filled sac whose function is to cushion and provide a gliding surface to reduce friction between tissues of the body. The major bursae are located adjacent to tendons near large joints, such as in the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees, though there are more than 150 bursae in your body. Inflammation around your bodies joints, usually caused by repetitive stress, direct trauma and prolonged pressure (leaning on your elbow for example) are among the most common causes of bursitis, although, often times bursitis cannot be attributed to anything specific.

bursa injury

Preventing and treating bursitis is simple but in some cases bursitis can require a long treatment plant. It can be next to impossible at times to keep from re-injuring the bursa because it's just not possible to stop everything and rest the injury properly. Everyone has demands that make them keep going and in the process inhibiting healing. What ends up happening is we continually swell the bursa due to daily activities.

Dear MendMeShop,

Your product is fantastic!

As a die hard rugby player my body takes some serious abuse. I have a bunch of your cold wraps (excellent by the way) and two BFST units. Recently I bought an ultrasound kit and you are quite right - the ultrasound took my whole therapy habit to another level.

I use everything religously now as part of my regular training and I find I get hurt a lot less often. When I do take a bad hit, I bounce back in no time.

Thanks you for extending my career!

If you want to reduce the pain and inflammation of bursitis at the source here is the answer! Stop living in pain, return your joints to the healthy state they once were!

Therapeutic kits from MendMeShop provide you with the tools necessary to relieve the pain of an inflamed bursa and dramatically speed the healing. A bursitis injury is a race against time - the quicker you eliminate inflammation in the bursa, the less chance there is for re-injury. Radiant Energy and Ultrasound dramatically increase the blood flow and reduces inflammation in the bursa, and this is important since there is very little blood flow in the bursa. That's why it takes so long to heal on its own - it just doesn't have the high blood circulation that you would find more active tissue (like muscle), and thus the healing is much slower on its own. Furthermore, when you rest your inflamed bursa, like you have to, the lack of activity and the edema (swelling) restricts your blood flow, thereby reducing the healing speed even more. You need to reduce the swelling and stimulate the blood flow so your muscle gets the nutrients and oxygen to properly heal. Inflammation around the area can create extreme pain and reduce your ability to move. When using radiant energy or ultrasound, the energy waves stimulate blood flow which speeds up healing and clears away the inflammation causing the pain.

Preventing future bursitis flare-ups depends on how well you manage the condition. Bursitis can be painful and cause stiffness in the joints. In order to prevent bursitis it is important to stretch and strengthen the muscles surrounding your joints; protecting them from further repetitive strain. Ultrasound therapy works well on stiff joints stricken by inflamed bursa. The deep penetrating heat draws blood into the area, warming it, and enabling a great range of motion. Range of motion is crucial for proper strengthening and stretching exercises.

Buy MendMeShop Ultrasound

Our Ultrasound system comes with a specially formulated gel which contains naturally-based, pain relieving, anti-inflammatory ingredients. The ultrasound unit actually drives the pain relieving ingredients deep into injured tissue (a process known medically as phonophoresis) giving you the pain relief where you need it. In effect, you receive enhanced ultrasound therapy treatment every session! Only our Therapeutic Ultrasound Devices comes with our very own MendMeShop Lavender Infusion gel.

While we recommend ultrasound treatment as the best anti-inflammatory and pain reliever to own for recent injuries and possible flare-ups in the future, it may be possible to alleviate milder cases of bursitis with rest, immobilization and cold therapy for inflammation.

This works because the cold interrupts and slows nerve and cell function in the damaged area. Once blood vessels are damaged they can no longer carry oxygenated blood to the damaged tissue and therefore cells begin to break-down. The deep cold provided by our cold/warm compression wraps slows cell function thereby reducing cellular break-down. Furthermore, because the cold wraps serve to numb the nerves the wraps also reduce pain! We have a variety of warm/cold wraps suitable for all parts of the body from the shoulders down to the foot.

Is My Ultrasound Treatment Missing the Advantages of Phonophoresis?

If you are not getting your ultrasound gel from us, then then answer is yes. Our all natural gel is the only Effective Topical Therapeutic Gel that is also a Phonophoretic Ultrasound Gel. When we went out looking for a great ultrasound gel to use with our ultrasound unit, we didn't like what we found, so we made our own! It is made with natural medical ingredients that have anesthetic,counter-irritant, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, decongestant, circulatory stimulant properties and more. When applied topically and massaged into the skin, MendMeShop Gel relieves pain and speeds healing without any side-effects.

Dear Reader,
Today we had some great news! After months of developing the formula and waiting for preliminarly tests to come back, I can honestly say our new Lavender Infusion Ultrasound Gel is a winner! We've kept out all the bad ingredients (paraben, colorants, industrial dyes), and I can honestly say - this is the costliest ultrasound gel ever made by anyone! Our decision NOT to use the standard industrial lavender additive but use REAL Bulgarian Lavender is a decision made for this reason: MendMeShop is about Real Solutions for Real People.
When we started this company, we decided to be the Internet Shop that people can count on. MendMeShop sells only the best, and no matter what you find on our shop, remember this - Our products come doctor and therapist recommended, and we only sell products that are the highest standard in the industry.

All the best,

Our cold/warm compression wraps are state of the art! The high quality plush neoprene design allows for a tighter and more comfortable fit for optimized compression therapy. And unlike other wraps on the market it will fit tight against the contours of your body making use of the wrap's entire healing surface! On top of that, the wrap's compartmental gel design, and soft-suspended gel means you get the therapy exactly where you need it - hold or cold! 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!
