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.

All about Migraine Headaches

 
...the migraine headache is.. number 19 of all diseases worldwide causing disability...
 

Migraine headaches are a common primary type of headache disorder; it is almost certain that this condition has a genetic basis. At present, the migraine headache is ranked by the World Health Organization as number 19 of all diseases worldwide causing disability. Activation of a mechanism deep in the brain causes release of pain-producing inflammatory substances around the nerves and blood vessels of the head. Why this happens, and what brings the process to an end are to a large extent uncertain. Adults with migraine describe episodic attacks with specific features, of which nausea is the most commonplace. Attack frequency is anywhere between once a year and once a week (most commonly once a month). In children, attacks tend to be of shorter duration and abdominal symptoms more prominent.

The pain location for a Migraine Headache is typically a severe, one-sided pulsating pain that will last from 4 to 72 hours. This headache is often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, cold hands and sensitivity to sound and sensitivity to light. It should also be noted that the Menstrual headache can also cause pain that is much like that of a Migraine headache, though this will only occur shortly before, during or immediately after menstruation or at mid-cycle (at time of ovulation). The prevalent cause of the menstrual headache is attributed to changes in estrogen levels, though headache treatment is the same as for a migraine. Physicians commonly try to prevent the menstrual headache by small doses of anti-inflammatory drugs before and during the menstrual period. A hysterectomy does not cure menstrual headaches.

A migraine can occur with or without an aura; in fact an aura can happen with or without a following migraine. To read more about auras or other variations of the migraine headache, click here.

Migraines and Trigger Points

The migraine headache is not successfully treated by trigger point therapy, as the primary cause of the migraine headache is an unknown mechanism deep in the brain. However, there may be cases where a migraine headache is partly induced or further intensified by sensitive trigger points, and in such cases, trigger point treatmeant with ultrasound will partly alleviate and possibly reduce frequency of occurrence.

Dear MendMeShop,

Just a quick note to say thanks for your products......even though it was I who purchased them, lol. I have been dealing with a small meniscus tear (left knee) for almost a year and a half and didn't want the surgery and the down time, crutches and also that I have stairs in my home and at my gym. I believe I have been useing your products for 3-4 weeks now and am really pleased with the results thus far. I am still taking stairs one at a time to reduce any impact on the knee and only do low impact cycling at the gym. It is my understanding that I should continue treatment for 4-6 months. Warm regards, David
