Dear MendMeShop,

I am a very active individual. If I am not running or lifting weights you can usually find me doing various outdoor and home improvement projects. That is why when I recently started experiencing pain in my shoulder, upper arm and forearm I concluded that I had aggravated an old rotator cuff injury. Initially I ignored the discomfort, thinking that that would make it magically disappear but, to my disappointment the pain only continued to get worse. After a couple of months of I pain, I decided to do something for myself. I tried stretching exercises, massage, the heating pad and ibprofen but nothing seemed to be helping. That's when I went online and found the Mend Me Shop and the inferno wrap for the shoulder seemed like a good way to wrap the heat around the immediate area that needed treating. When I picked up the package from the post office I was anxious to get started. I was so pleased that after only three days of using the products, I was feeling relief. It's only been a little over a week since I started treatments and I can say that I can once again imagine living without the that constant pain. Thanks so much for the relief !!!

Dear MendMeShop,

I have been using the Inferno & Freezie Wraps since November,2012. I saw an orthopedic doctor after Thanksgiving and have been going to occupational therapy (3) days per week. I was told by my ortho doctor to continue to use the items that I had purchased from you (I brought them in on my initial visit with him). I am currently using the inferno wrap as soon as I wake up in the morning, then continue to do my daily wrist and arm exercises. I use the freezie wrap when I am finished. While working I use a tennis elbow brace and I am also using it while doing housework or other chores where I am using my arm alot. My arm is improving slowly as I am working (4) days a week as a chef for 12-14 hours per day. My ortho doctor told me that it would take some time to heal completely. I don't see him until the end of February (3 months since initial visit). So far I am seeing improvement in both pain management and flexibility. I believe the combination of therapy sessions and the use of your wrap treatments are the key to a successful treatment plan. I'll keep you informed of my progress. Thanks again for your help and guidance.

More Tendon Facts:

Inferno Wrap treatments can speed tendonitis recovery significantly.


A fully ruptured Tendon REQUIRES surgery. It will not heal on its own.


Except for a fully ruptured tendon, Tendonitis can almost always be cured without surgery.


Left untreated, tendonitis can be extremely debilitating and lead to life long complications.


Continually using your Tendon while it is injured will lead to a worse injury.

Dear MendMeShop,

The first time I used the shoulder inferno wrap and the freezie wrap was to treat a rotator cuff injury I sustained from over use and aging. I was in my early 60's and an avid tennis player,kayaker, skier, hiker and biker for most of my life. Doctors were recommending surgery but I opted for physical therapy. This helped but did not give me the relief I needed to continue with all of my athletic activities. Then I started using your product. After activities where I used my shoulder, even weight training, I used the freezie wrap followed by the inferno wrap. Then I used the inferno wrap periodically throughout the day while at work. I'm a therapist and my clients were OK with me wearing the wrap during sessions if I felt the need to. I experienced the ability to use my shoulder and be completely pain free. I was thrilled. Then at age 65 I began to have achilles tendon inflammation which became extremely painful. Doctors explained to me that as we age tendons lose flexibility and are more prone to injury. I bought that explanation to a point but again tried physical therapy, prolonged stretching, Ibuprofen and rest. I had relief if I used large regular doses of anti-inflamatory medications but was concerned about the long term negative affects of the meds. I purchased the Ankle inferno and freezie wrap and began the same routine I had used with my rotator cuff injury. I'm happy to say the results were the same. Even this aging body was able to repair and stretch my achilles tendon with exercise, and the cold and warm treatments from your products. Now I am still playing tennis and doing all of my other activities and I remain pain free. After athletics I use the freezie wrap followed by the inferno wrap. Also, before I play racket sports or hike I use the inferno wrap on my ankle and follow with gentle stretching. When I get home I use the freezie wrap. Who knows how long I will be able to continue my active life style. But right now I know that these products are enabling me to be an active, vibrant, aging woman who can (almost) keep up with my kids. I should add that I also maintain a healthy weight, train with weights, exercise every day and eat a plant based diet with lean protein. Even my healthy lifestyle wasn't enough to prevent these nagging injuries that become more prevalent as we age. So....thanks for making a great product ...... and my life more manageable.

Dear MendMeShop,

I love the products and I can definitely tell they are making a big difference in my healing. I just wish I had known of your products even sooner. I was in a serious motorcycle accident back in July and broke 17 bones, had a collapsed lung, and had numerous twists and sprains along with a lot of swelling. I was in the intensive care unit for 7 days and then in the hospital for 7 more before I was able to go home. To make a long story short, since using your products my pain level has gone down immensely and the swelling is finally under control. I even take the Inferno wrist and back wrap to work and use it since I have a desk job that makes it possible. I am down to just walking with a cane now and will probably be able to get rid of that in about two weeks. I did twenty minutes on the stationary bike yesterday and walked for 1/2 mile on our treadmill. Within another couple months I hope to be back to jogging several miles every other day. The 4 Inferno Wraps and 2 Cold Cure products along with lots of prayers on my behalf have helped make the difference. Thanks again so much, and God Bless you guys for your products! Steve Brown P.S. Also, here is a little more about my status now. I just ran the Peachtree Road Race (a 10K event – 6.2 miles) in 9:07 per mile. That was back on July 4. I just ran a 5K (3.1 miles) in 8:22 per mile this last weekend. I truly believe the wraps helped me get that level of fitness back. Many people my age (55) don't even ever get in that kind of shape, let alone a year after a major accident with all the complications that I had. I still use the Freezie Wraps after running when I can and I still regularly use the Inferno Wraps before many of my runs and exercise to warm things up.

Dear MendMeShop,

Over the past eight months I have been suffering from shoulder and arm pain. I just kept thinking that the pain would go away on its own. When I reached the point where I was unable to raise my arm over my head without assistance and forget about putting my arm behind my back. I decided that a trip to the doctor was due. She ruled out that I had an injury to the Rotator Cuff itself and determined that I had a soft tissue injury. Due to repetitive movement and heavy lifting. She suggested that I try physical therapy. With my work schedule and family obligations I knew that was going to be very difficult and I wanted something that I could fit into my schedule. So I began doing research on the internet for alternative treatments and exercises. That's when I found your product on the internet. I was somewhat skeptical as to rather it would perform as stated, but decided to give it a try. It was stated that it could take up to three weeks to feel results. BUT I am here to say that for myself it has done better. I have been using the Freezie Wrap for a week and have already felt some improvement. I can now raise my arm to just about shoulder height unassisted, and can now almost get my finger tips back behind my back. I make a point of using Freeze Wrap as soon as I get home from work to relieve the stress to my muscles from work and to keep the inflammation down. Now that I have gotten some of the inflammation gone I intend to incorporate the Inferno Wrap treatment to my regiment to just before going bed to aid the healing process and aid in a better night's sleep.

Dear MendMeShop,

MendMe products are the Cadillac of at-home treatment options. They are robustly constructed to provide superior heat or cold contact to the injured area and the fit is incredibly precise and adaptable. My husband and I use them repeatedly as typical ageing athletes with lots of old injuries. I have loaned them to friends on my paddle tennis team and everyone raves. Yes, they cost a bit more but save untold thousands in visits to chiropractors, physical therapists and doctors. We are among the sites biggest fans.

Dear MendMeShop,

The Shoulder Inferno wrap is working well for my shoulder bursitis. I went to my primary care doctor this week, and she was very interested in the treatments and the success - when little else was working in the last 5 months. My shoulder pain has gone away completely, and so I am obviously very pleased with the results.

Dear MendMeShop,

Two years ago, after returning to the gym for the first time in over a decade, I developed intense lower back pain which radiated into my left hip and leg. I also developed snapping hip syndrome. After many expensive visits to a chiropractor and physical therapist, I gained some relief, but still experienced constant low level pain in the injured areas with episodes of intense debilitating pain which interfered with my sleep and work. After searching online for alternative and cost effective self treatment methods, I discovered your website and purchased your Back/Hip Inferno Wrap and Back/Hip Freezie Wrap. Within a short period of time of using these products, I noticed a huge reduction in pain. Two months later, the pain is barely noticeable, the snapping hip syndrome is an unpleasant memory and I feel that significant long term healing of chronic injuries is taking place. I absolutely LOVE your products, and enthusiastically recommend them to everyone I meet who is experiencing similar pain issues. Kudos to Paul and everyone in your customer service department which is beyond compare in terms of knowledge, promptness and genuine concern for your customers!

Dealing with Acute Tendonitis

How to Use Superior Home Treatments to
Heal & Relieve Pain from Acute Tendonitis!

 

You might have acute tendonitis if:

doctor consulting about acute tendonitis
  • You have pain, swelling, redness or heat sensation, in the area that's injured.
  • You've experienced a sudden popping, crackling, or grating feeling followed by intense pain.
  • You've fallen, tripped or was in some kind of sudden accident that caused a great deal of pain around one of your joints.
  • All movement including your ability to walk, run, jump, carry or pick up objects and other activities you would normally do is reduced or impaired - with a decreased range of motion in the affected area.
  • You have an on-going injury that you wish had healed by now, but the pain, swelling and/or inflammation just won't go away.

At this point you're probably asking yourself:

"Why is my injury taking so long to heal?"


"Why can't I get back to my regular activities / job sooner?"


If you're suffering from these symptoms and now asking yourself these questions, it's important for you to know that tendinitis is an inflammatory condition where the pain, swelling and inflammation can go on for weeks (and sometimes even months).

Our Freezie Wraps provide consistent cold compression ideal for acute tendonitis injuries.

For some people it may even take weeks or months to get a proper diagnosis and figure out what's causing your pain. For those people, treatment and healing will take even longer because you may spend weeks or months treating an area that's not the true root cause of your symptoms.

If it's now been 3 to 4 weeks with this injury and the pain is still there you could be resting your injury too much, not resting it nearly enough or still waiting for a proper diagnosis on your condition. Even while waiting for a diagnosis, rest is very important for the first few weeks of an acute tendonitis injury. Resting with consistent cold compression makes a huge difference and will actually stop the damage that's happening to your tendon. Stopping the amount of damage going on in your tendon should be your first priority because it will help to minimize the total amount of time needed to heal.

Our Inferno Wraps provide Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy needed to improve blood flow circulation and speed up the healing process of acute tendonitis.

After rest and cold compression - moving the tendon and applying Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy is really needed for complete healing. Around the 2 to 4 week mark it's time to focus on increasing blood flow circulation in the tissue. This is critical because tendons are known to receive very little natural blood flow. When the tendon tissue is damaged, the already-reduced blood flow is decreased down to a trickle.

Blood flow (healthy circulation) is an important part of natural tissue healing. Injured tendons take the nutrients available in local blood flow (like oxygen, antibodies, white blood cells and healing agents) to get rid of any damaged tissue and start growing healthy tissue.


Sometimes Tendons Can't Receive
Enough Natural Blood Flow for Healing
The Achilles tendon watershed zone is 2 to 4 cm above the heel bone.

In some cases of acute tendonitis, the micro-tearing is located in an area known as the watershed zone.

The watershed zone is basically a part of the tendon that has the weakest amount of blood supply (even when it's completely healthy with no tears). This area usually gets blood supply from peripheral veins. This reduced blood supply makes the watershed zone an area of your tendon that's prone to injury and a poor healing response.

Many tendons in the body are known to have watershed zones that are prone to tendon tears. Some of the tendons that have a watershed zone include the Achilles tendon, the posterior tibial tendon in the foot / ankle, the rotator cuff (supraspinatus) tendon in your shoulder, the bicep and tricep tendons in your arm and the flexor tendons in your hand.

 

What is Acute Tendonitis?

overloading your arms can lead to Tendonitis of the elbows

Our bodies use tendons everyday to stretch, pull and move. Tendons are cord-like pieces of soft tissue that connect our muscles to our bones. We have about 400 tendons in our bodies.

Overworking or overloading one area of the body can cause small microscope tears in the tendon. Your body responds by inflaming the tissue to try and heal it, creating a condition known as acute tendinitis. This is your body's way of telling you that you're putting too much stress on your muscle or joint. Your tendon will repair itself quickly if the damage is only slight or is caused by something that may only happen occasionally. If the damage causing your acute tendonitis happens frequently, the pain will continue and the condition may turn into chronic tendonitis.

What Causes Acute Tendonitis?

There are many causes of acute tendonitis, some of them include:

  • Overusing / overloading your arm, shoulder, elbow or knee. This can happen to a retired person working in their garden too long, a well-trained athlete who is pushing themselves too much too soon (or who has poor technique), a factory worker who assembles parts with repetitive actions of the arms or wrist.
  • Weekend Warriors may suffer from acute or chronic tendonitis.
  • Lifting or carrying heavy objects, participating in sports like lifting weights or having a job that requires you to carry boxes all day can also lead to acute tendonitis injuries.
  • Participating in casual athletic activity on weekends or after work. This problem is commonly seen with "weekend warrior" athletes, who sit at a desk all week and then play softball or tennis all day on the weekend.
  • Trauma such as a fall or misstep.
  • People who are overweight are at a higher risk of developing tendonitis because the additional weight increases pressure on the tendons.
  • Some inflammatory conditions (ie. Reiter syndrome or ankylosing spondylitis), autoimmune disorders (ie. type 1 diabetes), and some infections may also put you at risk of getting acute tendonitis.
  • Major joints in the body are more likely to be affected by tendinitis. This includes the shoulder (rotator cuff tendinitis), elbow (tennis elbow or golfer's elbow), wrist and thumb (flexor tendinitis, extensor tendinitis, de Quervain's syndrome), knee (jumper's knee), ankle (Achilles tendinitis), and hip (hip flexor tendinitis).

What are the Symptoms of Acute Tendonitis?

Tendonitis can have 3 stages of symptoms:

Acute tendonitis first presents with swelling and inflammation.

Stage 1 - Inflammation to the damaged tendon will cause you to have swelling, warmth, redness or a burning pain. You may feel pain and tenderness right outside the affected joint.

Stage 2 - The pain is worse when you move the affected area. Stiffness in the morning or after long-periods of rest or inactivity may also occur.

Stage 3 - At this point people usually experience constant pain. This stage is leading to your condition turning into chronic tendonitis.


The location of your pain can vary based on the type of tendonitis you may be suffering from.

Anyone can suffer from acute tendinitis, but it's most common in adults due to degeneration of tissue as we age, over time the tendons will wear down. This is where the fibers in your tendons will become weaker - it's just a natural process that happens as we age.

Acute or sudden tendinitis may become chronic or long-lasting if it isn't treated correctly. We rest for a few days and think once swelling or inflammation (the pain) is gone that the injury is better. We also make the mistake of returning to regular activities too soon without proper time for healing. The truth is that healing takes time and after the swelling is gone your injury is not even close to being fully healed.


An acute tendonitis injury heals in about two to four weeks.

Chronic tendinitis can take more than six weeks to heal.

Do You Really have Tendonitis or is it Another Injury?

Tendonitis can and does affect joints of the body shoulder, elbows, or knees. The complex joints of our bodies have ligament, bursa sacs and cartilage all which can have damage.

Ligament Injuries vs Tendonitis
Ligaments of the knee

Ligaments are fibrous bands of tissue that connect the end of 1 bone to another. Ligaments are usually only found around major joints in the body, with the hand and foot containing the most number of ligaments. If you have a ligament injury you'll usually feel pain in the injured area as well as swelling and inflammation. If you have injured a major ligament in a joint then you may also feel instability in that joint as one of the major ligaments connecting your bones together is injured or ruptured.

Immediate ligament injury treatment usually consists of icing the area for the first 48 hours, gently returning to activity after a few days and taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) (reference: 1).


Cyst vs Tendonitis

Baker's cysts can form on the back of the knee.

A ganglion cyst or synovial cyst can occur in any joint in the body. They appear under the skin as a lump or bump (non-cancerous) and may sometimes present no other symptoms. The cyst is basically a soft sac filled with a thick, clear fluid. It's still unknown why cysts form so close to a joint or tendon.

They may or may not become painful (in a lot of cases they're harmless), will limit your activity and could possibly grow larger if you continue the activity that caused this injury in the first place. Usually cysts only become really painful if the cyst is pressing down on any nerves in the affected area. If this is the case, then you may suffer from pain, tingling, numbness or muscle weakness.

If you don't have a lot of pain then you may only need to treat the symptoms of your cyst and wait for the cyst to naturally go away on its' own. Cysts most commonly show up in the wrist, hand, ankle, feet and near other joints (ie. the back of the knee - a baker's cyst).


Bursitis vs Tendonitis
Bursae in the hip

Bursae (plural for bursa) are flattened fluid-filled sacs that function as cushions between your bones and muscles (deep bursae) or bones and tendons (superficial bursae). They reduce friction and allow the surface of your soft tissue to slide over bone effortlessly. When pressure or friction is too great, excess fluid can build up in the bursa sac causing inflammation. When a bursa becomes inflamed, moving the affected area becomes very painful and movement can be difficult. Any actions that put pressure on the inflamed bursa can increase irritation and cause further inflammation and pain.


Calcific Tendinitis vs Tendonitis
The cause or reactive calcific Tendonitis is unknown but symptoms present in 3 stages

Calcific Tendonitis is caused by a chemical reaction with other tissues in the body - resulting in calcium that builds-up in the tendons. This is a more common condition with women between the ages of 30 and 50. This is not a sport / activity related injury.

Calcific Tendonitis is known to be a natural process than can occur in some people and not in others. The shoulder and rotator cuff are the typical location of calcific tendinitis, but it can also occur in the elbows, wrists, hands, hips, knees, or feet. In some cases this injury can also be called calcific tendinopathy. With this condition you may experience pain and stiffness that often comes back. Calcific tendonitis usually only lasts for one to two months.


Arthritis vs Tendonitis
Rheumatoid arthritis and Osteoarthritis can weaken a joint causing other soft tissue injuries like tendonitis.

Arthritis is a condition that can affect the tissue lining in joints (this lining is called the 'synovium'). You may suffer from rheumatoid arthritis (RA) which is an autoimmune disease, or osteoarthritis (OA) which is a degenerative condition from wear and tear. When experiencing arthritis in general, inflammation from arthritis causes redness, heat, pain and swelling. Symptoms start with feeling pain and stiffness in the joint, reduced joint mobility, and swelling. It's possible for arthritis to cause tendonitis, with severe swelling in the joint arthritis can cause weakening in tendon tissue resulting in a strain or rupture.

Autoimmune Diseases vs Tendonitis

Autoimmune diseases can affect almost any part of the body, including the heart, brain, nerves, muscles, skin, eyes, joints, lungs, kidneys, glands, the digestive tract, and blood vessels. The classic sign of an autoimmune disease is inflammation, which can cause redness, heat, pain, and swelling. If the disease affects the joints, as with arthritis or systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), you might have joint pain, stiffness, and loss of function.


How Can I Prevent Tendonitis?

  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle by decreasing your weight, if you are overweight.
  • Warm-up all the tendons you plan on exercising by stretching. Incorporate 5 minutes warm-up for every 30 minutes of planned exercise.
  • Our Inferno Wraps provide Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy needed to improve blood flow circulation and speed up the healing process of acute tendonitis.
  • Use an Inferno Wrap® to improve blood flow circulation before activity.
  • Cool-down thoroughly, with stretches in your exercise routine.
  • Use cold compression with a Freezie Wrap® to immediately treat any post-workout swelling, inflammation and/or pain.
  • Slowly build the intensity level of your workout. This is important because sometimes people can be over ambitious to lose weight or get that competitive edge in their sport.
  • Train for a new sport before you start playing. Start building strength and flexibility in the muscles you will use a few weeks or months in advance.
  • Learn the proper technique and use the proper equipment for any exercise or activity.
  • Work out consistently, not just once a week.

Acute Tendonitis Treatments -
What You Can Do!

We Have Advanced Treatment Tools to Help You
Speed Up Healing of Your Acute Tendonitis

The good news is that most cases of tendon injuries will heal with simple home conservative treatments and surgery is often not needed!

Step 1 - Reduce Regular Activities & Rest Your Injury
Our Freezie Wraps provide consistent cold compression ideal for acute tendonitis injuries.

Allowing your tendon to rest is always recommended following injury. Avoid all activities that may have caused the injury or irritation and begin cold compression treatments as soon as possible.

When you have your pain, swelling and inflammation under control you can actually start to apply treatments with tools that will encourage healing in your tendon. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy will treat scar tissue and promote blood flow to heal your tendon faster and more completely than other methods available. Using these conservative treatment tools can get you back to a life without pain and eliminate any further risk of re-injury.


Step 2 - Reduce Pain & Swelling with Cold Compression
Cold Compression Freezie Wrap Therapy for your tendon injury will reduce pain, swelling and tissue damage for faster healing.

The 1st step for conservative treatment of your tendonitis is to reduce the swelling to "open up" the area for more blood flow. Anyone in the health-care business knows that your blood supplies the oxygen and much needed nutrients required to heal tendon injuries. This is why for years, doctors, trainers, and other medical professionals have recommended RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) to treat the pain and swelling of fresh injuries, chronic pain, and after any re-injury.

Although RICE can help to treat these symptoms, ice and freezer gel packs reach temperatures so low they can cause cryoburn, an ice burn on your skin. The problem is, up until now there hasn't been any other option to treat painful conditions and injuries, so ice and blue gel packs (full of anti-freeze and chemicals) have been the only choice available.

Fortunately you no longer have to settle for these ice cold methods that are uncomfortably cold against your skin, provide short term relief, cause ice burns, numb your skin and underlying tissue beyond feeling so you don't even notice the ice burn until it's too late and pool around your injury putting the cold everywhere except for where you need it most.

Cold Compression Freezie Wrap Therapy for your tendon injury will reduce pain, swelling and tissue damage for faster healing.

A Freezie Wrap® allows you to treat your tendonitis in an effective and convenient way. Our Freezie Wraps® will wrap around your body keeping the cold right over your injury for the entire length of your treatment. Our food-grade, non-toxic gel packs can be chilled in the fridge or freezer to tailor the amount of cold that you need for your injury. It doesn't matter how you cool it down, because our gel packs are chock full of gel that's designed to cool down into millions of tiny snowflakes. This method of cooling means our gel packs aren't icy-cold! The cushioned gel will wrap around your injury and it won't budge for the entire treatment period. You'll no longer have to deal with annoying pooling gel away from the injury site or have to hold a hard block of ice on your injury!


Cold Compression Therapy slows nerve and cell function - reducing the swelling that blocks blood vessels from doing their job.

 

Our Freezie Wraps provide consistent cold compression ideal for acute tendonitis injuries.

This is important because once blood vessels are blocked or damaged, they can no longer carry oxygenated blood through the tissue and tissue cells begin to break-down. Without cold compression therapy cellular break-down and tissue damage continues as the cells don't get the oxygen they need to survive. By limiting the amount of damage done to your tendon, you also limit the amount of healing that needs to occur. This is a very important step to heal tendon injuries faster and with less pain! This is why you need to treat your tendon injury pain right after it's hurt, when you notice pain / swelling / inflammation, or directly after a re-injury. Applying a Freezie Wrap® right away will stop the damage immediately and unblock your blood vessels to let your body's natural blood flow in to start healing the tissue.


Cold Compression Therapy = the Freezie Wrap®

 

It'll seem weird for you to read this, but there are a LOT of people out there that don't understand how fast cold compression with a Freezie Wrap® can get the swelling / inflammation in your tendon under control! After you get rid of the swelling for good you can start dealing with your tendon injury and pain head on.


Use a Cold Compression Freezie Wrap®:

  • 24 to 72 hours after your initial tendon injury or when you first notice pain and swelling to stop cellular damage, relieve pain, and decrease swelling.
  • After exercise, workouts or activity of any kind to prevent re-injury of your tendon injury.
  • Before and after surgery during rehabilitation to control pre and post-surgery pain and swelling.
  • Anytime you feel your tendon tissue is tender, painful or you're having a flare-up of an old tendonitis injury.
  • Anytime you have swelling, sharp throbbing pain or inflammation.
  • Any other situation where you need to draw the pain and inflammation out of your injury.
 


Step 3 - Improve Circulation, Soften Scar Tissue & Prevent Re-Injury with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy

After the inflammation has been reduced, providing extra blood flow and strengthening your tendon tissue is recommended.

MendMeShop Inferno Wrap speeds the healing of tendon injuries and tears

Promoting blood flow to your tendon to help your body heal itself is a concept that has been utilized for centuries. Oxygen and nutrients, carried within the blood, are critical for the body to heal itself. Without proper blood flow, your recovery from any soft tissue injury will be delayed... sometimes for a very long period of time.

Even though the concept is simple, improving blood flow to your tendon while it's injured can be difficult. Traditional methods require you to move in order to promote blood flow - but that same motion that promotes blood flow can also make your pain and tendon injury much worse. Relying on movement alone to increase blood flow puts you in danger of re-injuring your tendon.

So what do you do when you need to increase blood flow, but you can't move without re-injuring your tendon?

This is where Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) comes in! Using BFST® will help with your recovery and heal your tendon more completely. BFST® increases the amount of blood that flows naturally to your soft tissue to nourish your tendons, improve elasticity and speed up the healing process. This increased Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy to your injured tendon is greatly needed.

MendMeShop Inferno Wrap speeds the healing of tendon injuries and tears

The only way to get BFST® is through use of an Inferno Wrap®. The Inferno Wrap® is the only treatment method that improves blood flow and circulation on a deep tissue level. Other methods of warming up tissue (hot water bottles, hot baths, etc) will only ever increase blood flow on a surface / skin level. These methods need a LOT of time to even reach your tendon on a deep tissue level. And even if you were to use them this long your skin would heat up to an uncomfortable level and you might even get burned!

The best source of blood flow circulation treatment is from a product where you don't even feel that much heat. When you don't feel the heat, it means the therapy is working in your deep soft tissue which is really where you need it. It's kind of like how your heart works in your body. You can't "feel" your heart pumping blood all around your body to your arms and legs. You can't even hear your own heartbeat without listening very closely. This is exactly how deep tissue BFST® works too! You're not supposed to "feel" a lot of heat because the energy isn't treating your skin, it's treating your injury increasing the blood flow right in your tendon tissue.

  • When treating any soft tissue injury, an effective therapy will increase blood flow to the injury while the joint is immobile.
  • This increase in blood flow will accelerate the body's own ability to heal itself.
  • The Inferno Wrap® is the most highly effective blood flow stimulation device that you will find on the market that is approved by the FDA for use in the home or hospital.
Our Inferno Wraps provide Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy needed to improve blood flow circulation and speed up the healing process of acute tendonitis.

Our Inferno Wrap® is made from medical-grade material - this should be as important to you as it is to us! Other products that are sold in stores are considered "consumer goods" meaning the material only needs to be as good as a sweater that you wear. Clothing articles like this don't need to meet high standards of production or materials and may include materials that irritate your skin.

Since our wraps are medical-grade products registered with the FDA, they are of a higher quality and need to meet way more standards for manufacturing (ISO 10993 - bio-compatibility testing). This makes our wraps the safest product available for BFST®. Our manufacturer has spent years perfecting the wrap design to make sure you get the treatment you deserve!

Use BFST® Inferno Wraps®:

  • After swelling and inflammation have been reduced with cold compression.
  • Before exercise or workouts to warm up the tendons to prevent re-injury.
  • Before and after surgery during rehabilitation to warm up your tissues before physical therapy exercising or stretching.
  • Anytime you feel your tendon has stiffened up, is tight and your mobility is reduced causing you more pain.
  • Anytime you have sore or aching tissue.
  • Any other situation where you need to increase blood flow to your injury to relax your tendon, relieve pain, prevent re-injury and enhance flexibility.
 


It may seem hard to believe, but our Freezie Wraps® and Inferno Wraps® will assist you in recovering from your injury faster and reduce the chance suffering from degeneration conditions (like arthritis or tendinosis) by maximizing blood flow where it's needed most and reducing swelling and inflammation induced pain.

Tendon Injury Facts:

When the tendon gets inflamed it is known as tendonitis, and when the tendons are chronically overused, it may lead to microscopic tears in the collagen matrix and causes a gradual weakening of the tissues.


Achilles tendonitis is a common injury among runners, as the Achilles tendon is responsible for helping you lift off the ground with each stride.


As computers become ever more important elements of the work place and everyday life, incidents of wrist tendonitis are on the rise.


Oral Medications can mask the pain but do not aid in the healing of tendonitis. Anti-inflammatories and pain killers can mask the pain and indirectly cause tendonitis to worsen.


Ice and Compression treatments are the easiest and most effective treatments for tendonitis.

Dear MendMeShop,

So far so good. After using a variety of ice packs there is no comparison in comfort and success of reducing swelling in the affected areas with these “Freezie Wraps”. We will continue to use them and let you know how it goes!

Dear MendMeShop,

As soon as I began using the shoulder product much of the swelling and pain went away. I was impressed because I'm a cynical health practitioner. But it does make total sense to move blood flow to tissue that needs to be repaired. There's really no other way -- except for surgery. And I'm trying to avoid that. I'd say I have another 30-40% of arm use back. Thank you MendMeShop for creating such a simple and effective product.

Dear MendMeShop,

I'm doing well with my Inferno Wraps. I have one for my foot, leg, back, and elbow. My elbow IS gradually getting better. The foot/ankle/Achilles, leg, and back/hip are helping a lot. I have a complex soft tissue injury from a fall where my foot was asleep and I did not know it ... UNTIL I fell on the floor, having twisted (running on my foot that turned over) my ankle, knee, and hip. I have healed well from the original injury (now 4 years ago) with lots of chiropractic and massage therapy and lots of rehab. One of my rehabs now is "Ballroom Dancing" with a teacher who understands injuries. I call it "Physio-dance therapy for rehabilitation." I've done this for the last 8 months and have gotten incredibly stronger and improved coordination and balance. But, 3 weeks ago I "strained" my Achilles/calf/ankle/foot muscles and tendons. I purchased the Inferno Wraps to help expedite my healing, which they HAVE DONE and I've only used them 2 weeks now. I am using them 2 times per day, every day.

Dear MendMeShop,

I am elated with the Shoulder Inferno and Freezie Wraps. I purchased. My shoulder is regaining strength, albeit slowly. Until I found your products I was in tremendous throbbing pain from a rotator cuff injury. For three months I used Chiropractors and exercise bands to no avail. The terrible throbbing has subsided and I am once again able to throw the ball with my two German Pointers! If I over do activity, the freeze wrap helps to calm the shoulder down. An hour after that I do the Inferno Wrap.

Dear MendMeShop,

I have nothing but good to say about the Inferno Wrap. I am continuing to use it daily. My shoulder is better than I imagined it could be in the amount of time I have been using it. Sometimes I go for days with no pain and when it does come back, it is no where near the intensity it was before the Inferno Wrap. Thank you so much for tracking my progress. A very happy customer, Louise Schiotis

Dear MendMeShop,

I love the products and I can definitely tell they are making a big difference in my healing. I just wish I had known of your products even sooner. I was in a serious motorcycle accident back in July and broke 17 bones, had a collapsed lung, and had numerous twists and sprains along with a lot of swelling. I was in the intensive care unit for 7 days and then in the hospital for 7 more before I was able to go home. To make a long story short, since using your products my pain level has gone down immensely and the swelling is finally under control. I even take the Inferno wrist and back wrap to work and use it since I have a desk job that makes it possible. I am down to just walking with a cane now and will probably be able to get rid of that in about two weeks. I did twenty minutes on the stationary bike yesterday and walked for 1/2 mile on our treadmill. Within another couple months I hope to be back to jogging several miles every other day. The 4 Inferno Wraps and 2 Cold Cure products along with lots of prayers on my behalf have helped make the difference. Thanks again so much, and God Bless you guys for your products! Steve Brown P.S. Also, here is a little more about my status now. I just ran the Peachtree Road Race (a 10K event – 6.2 miles) in 9:07 per mile. That was back on July 4. I just ran a 5K (3.1 miles) in 8:22 per mile this last weekend. I truly believe the wraps helped me get that level of fitness back. Many people my age (55) don't even ever get in that kind of shape, let alone a year after a major accident with all the complications that I had. I still use the Freezie Wraps after running when I can and I still regularly use the Inferno Wraps before many of my runs and exercise to warm things up.

Dear MendMeShop,

Hello, I'm reporting into you that the shoulder wrap is working so good. Most of my pain is gone now. I have good movement of the arm. Can raise it up over head now and around to the back. Before I started the treatments I was not able to do these things. I am a believer of your product and I will continue to use it. I went to my Doctor today for my yearly physical and I told her about me ordering this wrap, as I did not want to go through another surgery on the rotator-cuff. I just got done doing my overhead pulley exercises on my arms and then I put on the wrap and it felt so good. I still am being very careful as to not over use the arm. I was able to run my vacuum today with the right arm and did great. Ok, just thought you would like to hear my progress and I am very happy with the results so far
