Dear MendMeShop,

I developed tendonitis in my left ankle about a year ago, after having some pain and realizing I needed to go to the doctor to see what I’d done! In November, I was told it was tendonitis and to wear a “boot” or air cast and that they would prescribe physical therapy. I was told that I did not need to wear the boot 24/7, but anytime it was painful or would be using my feet a lot, I should use it. Even though I’m a type A and like to multi-task and move quickly, I wore the boot, but boy did it get in my way. The physical therapy definitely helped, and they gave me some exercises to do at home and while gone for about two weeks. I graduated from physical therapy in January, and although my ankle did not really feel stable, the pain had diminished. However my body had aches and pains, some sciatica, my legs had cramping and those worsened whenever using the boot for long walking periods, as suggested by PT’s and doctor. Basically, we dediced that all this had helped, but anytime there was a strain put on that ankle, it was back to swelling and pain. And, the boot helped to keep pressure off the injury, but basically caused more damage to the rest of me. Frustrated, I decided to search tendonitis on line, and was looking for other modalities for healing. Voila! This lead me to the MendMeShop. With their 60 Day Money Back Guarantee, Free Shipping on orders over $200.00 and great support – I decided to purchase (I mean how could I go wrong)! I got the Achilles Inferno Wrap (for pain), the Achilles Freezie Wrap (for swelling, although after using the Inferno really didn’t have a swelling problem) and the 5 Year Extended Warranty on about the 20th of June this year. Read the instructions, called with a couple of questions and got great personalized service, and started using the Inferno Wrap as directed! Immediately my ankle was back to its more normal size and most of the pain was gone. I am able to move freely, actually am working a few days a week on my feet 8-9 hours, and although I don’t believe my tendon is totally healed yet – I believe it will be as I continue to use the Inferno Wrap. I simply saw that the PT (which included some ten treatments) was giving me snippets of relief. The boot left me wondering if it wouldn’t cause other damage even though it took the pressure off the tendon when I was unable to walk on it. The Inferno Wrap, and the few times I’ve needed the Freezie Wrap, have done more for me and has been worth every penny spent. I know I’ve saved 100’s in PT had I not met TheMendMe Shop and their products.

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

Did you know that 45 million Americans suffer from chronic headache? This means 1 in every 6 people suffer from recurring headache pain and in many cases, treatment for these headaches has only been partially successful. Headaches are divided into two types; primary, which are not brought or caused by other conditions or diseases, and secondary headaches, which are caused by trauma and/or disease.

Primary headaches include: migraine, tension and cluster headaches. Tension headaches are the most common; 90 percent of adults have had or will have tension headaches. The tension headache is generally a mild ache that can last anywhere from mere minutes to days, disappearing and returning. An estimated 28 million people in the United States suffer the head splitting pain of migraines. Migraine sufferers experience throbbing head pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and increased sensitivity to noise and light. Cluster headaches, named after their propensity to occur in clusters of time and then subside, are rare, mostly affecting young men.

Headache treatments usually come in the form of pills that are usually effective painkilling treatments given that they are taken properly. For some of us though, medication may not be our first choice, especially when you consider that painkillers merely cloud the pain signal, masking the pain, not treating the source of your headache.

Headache Pain

Alternative treatment methods are aimed at treating the source of your headache. Even doing simple things like getting regular exercise, taking in enough water daily and cutting out food and drink that may trigger your headache can reduce your risk of suffering a headache.

Again, alternative treatments focus their efforts at treating the source of your pain. Trigger point therapy is one of these methods. Trigger points are either active, causing pain, or latent. Deep in the muscle tissue is where these points form; becoming active from overuse, injury and surgery the effect is an increased tension or contraction in the muscle which can refer pain elsewhere. Breaking down these trigger points releases the tension and alleviates the associated referred pain.


Thank you you for your great customer service.

Your product is excellent and your quick response to my requests is outstanding. I hope other people take advantage of your ultrasound since it compliments physical therapy and gives quicker results.

MendMeShop Ultrasound is a fantastic method for trigger point release, effectively eliminating headache pain caused by these problem points. When our ultrasound unit is applied over these trigger points, your muscles and tendons in the immediate area vibrate. They vibrate so quick you can barely feel anything, although you will know its working because the vibration will soon cause the tissue to gently warm. Think of ultrasound treatment as the deepest muscle massage you have ever had. Ultrasound provides enhanced supersonic vibration, right at the point you need it. This quickly gets much more blood flowing in the area (flushing lactic acid and toxins) and gently massaging the tensed muscle tissue, creating a term known by doctors as "trigger point release". Once a sensitive trigger point is released, the referred pain quickly subsides and once all sensitive trigger points are released, your headache / neck ache / back pain is gone!

Not only does the MendMeShop Portable Pain Therapy System provide a deep penetrating trigger point massage it also 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! The MendMeShop Portable Ultrasound Device is a product that is prescribed by doctors and used in physical therapy and chiropractic clinics. MendMeShop Lavender Infusion Gel is a professional product for professional quality treatments. It's powerful, effective, hypoallergenic, and it works! Now, the tremendous benefits of therapeutic ultrasound and phonophoresis are available to you. And we back our products with a 100% Money-back Guarantee.

For many people, headaches are related to a soft tissue injury. The inflamed tissues place pressure on the surrounding area much like a tension headache. The muscles in your upper back and neck are strongly tied to the myofascial (head and face) muscles so any inflammation in these areas, the upper back and neck, can radiate pain into the head and face. Traumatic injuries such as whiplash can cause pain and inflammation due to minor tearing in the muscle tissue. To control your headache you need to address the source. Cold compression therapy is your best bet at relieving muscle inflammation.

Our cold compression neck wraps are made of the highest quality materials available. They fit perfectly, stay in place, are extremely durable, and use a special patented baffled cold array. What is a baffled cold array? All other cold packs simply use a plastic bag partially filled with cold gel. What is sure to happen is the gel pools in the low spots or in pockets where there is no pressure. Fill a plastic bag with water and put it on your arm and watch what happens - all the water sits in two pools on either side of your arm. Cold compression wraps work because they interrupt and slow 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 cold compression wraps slow cell function thereby reducing cellular break-down. Furthermore, because the cold wraps serve to numb the nerves the wraps also reduce pain!
