Dear MendMeShop,

I spent 7 years in the gym walking one hour and working out. I lost 85 pounds in about 2 years with a lot of hard work and dedication. After I left the gym in 2008 due to it closing I started having problems about a year later. I recently had surgery on my left shoulder on Jan 4th of this year to shave down the bone to leave enough space for my shoulder joint to work. It seemed to be healing slowly, until I probably reinjured it trying to cut down a small tree. I went back to my Orthopedic Surgeon for my follow up and had to have a cortizone shot in June so I could be painfree while on a long awaited vacation. The shot lasted until September and had another shot October 26 with a warning from the Dr that if I couldn't get any better through therapy by Jan 6 2011 I would have to have the full surgery with my tendons and muscles sewn up to the top of my Rotator Cuff. I told him I don't want to go through the pain again, since I can't take pain medication due to my daily med I have to take for PTSD and can't take them both at the same time. So I did some research for the last 2 months and kept coming up with the MendMeShop Left Shoulder Inferno Wrap. I printed all the material and showed it to my OS and he said to try it if I think it will help me. I received it in 2 days last Friday and was out of town overnight.So I didn't get to try it until Saturday night. I tried it wrapped over a sweater with a thermal shirt underneath and the heat went right through and felt like I was at the physical therapist. The next day I did a few 60 minute sessions and I could feel my muscles ache a little bit, but NO PAIN praise God !!! I was buying a large tube of Extra Strength Muscle Rub with 16 % Menthol once a week to bear the pain along with 800 ML of Ibuprofen.Today is Thursday and I haven't had to put any rub on my shoulder since coming home Saturday night. This Inferno Wrap is incredible and is worth every penny. I am on Disability so I can't afford to waste a penny, but this purchase is becoming a lifesaver for me. Sometimes I just unplug from the charger, tuck the little 8 inch connector, then I tighten the wrap to make it a compression support and the heat stays in it for hours and allows me to be able to function a lot less painful since I am left handed also. If I could give it a 10 star rating instead of a 5 star I would. I will keep you all up to date a few times a week as I progress, along with any replies I might receive. Sun Nov 14, 2010 2:51 pm

Dear MendMeShop,

I recently went to a Rheumatologist and was diagnosed with DeQuervains tenosynovitis. I was tested and treated with a cortizone shot, pain medication and was told to continue using the brace I bought previous to the visit. The shot may have lasted all of 4 hours. I went online to research the condition and treatment. I ordered the Wrist Inferno Wrap immediately after reading the reviews and what it could do for the pain I was experiencing. To my surprise this wrap starting working within a couple of days. I could not believe it! Although this treatment indicates it would take atleast 4 to 6 weeks, I am experiencing relief already. The nodule beneath my thumb where I was experiencing the spasms has disappeared. THIS PRODUCT really works. I am so greatful to you and endorse this product 100%. I am hoping to be completely healed with continued use soon. Thank you so much for creating a product that TRULY WORKS. I use as recommended 3 times a day including in the office. I rate this product as EXCELLENT!

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.


To Heal as fast as possible:

Dear MendMeShop,

The Freezie Wrap for the shoulder is miles above using regular ice bags. Shoulder injuries are a tough nut and take weeks if not months to heal. The wrap has already been money well spent.

Dear MendMeShop,

First I have a bad knee with arthritis and loss of cartilage. Over a year ago I was advised by my doctor to get a knee replacement. I am 70 years old using a arthritis drug, it is not effective as it once was, so I have been getting special shots in my knee, This combination brought my pain level down quite a bit. But I was looking for more because I didn’t want a knee replacement yet. I found you add on the internet for the Freezie and Inferno Wraps. I bought both. When my knee swells from too much activity I use freeze to help bring down the swelling. The freeze really works great and relieves the pain. On a Daily basis when I get up, I use the Inferno Wrap and I immediately can become active for most normal activities for the day without pain, unless I overdo then I do the Freezie. I also use the heat at night when I go to bed which relieves any pain I might have then. I have since bought an Inferno knee wrap for my wife and she says it is the best thing she has ever used to comfort her bad knees. Both her knees are bad with arthritis, and she is wanting another one so she can do both knees at the same time. I also have a lower back that for years was either causing spasms in either side when I would overdo activities, I bought the back Inferno after having such great success with it, each morning I lay it on the bed and lie on it for 20 min before I start my Daily activities. As long as I do this every day I have not had back problems. If I go for a few days without it, my back will start to tighten up again. I then lie on it for relief. One time my back went out completely when not using it and instead of the 2 weeks to get back in shape it only took a few days while using the Inferno. I now use it every morning and night and my back has not went out for some time. My only concern is now my wife is using it so we have to fight for it. Soon we will have to get her one. I am very active in sports and daily activities that require lot of stress on body parts, and as you get older, these body parts don’t work as good as they used to and causes pain. So any help I can get I will go for it. I have also used these wraps on leg muscle cramps for very fast relief and for stiff necks. Anywhere I get a pain I try to wrap one of these Inferno Wrap around it for relief. Great Product!

Dear MendMeShop,

So far, so good! I've used the shoulder treatment 4x a day for a week now and seen a marked improvement in my shoulder with both flex ability and pain relief. P.S. As a follow up one week after the initial comments... Indeed, after a couple weeks of use, the pain totally subsided. Thanks!!!

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

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.

Stopping the Cycle of Repetitive Strain Injuries


How to Use Superior Home Treatments to
Heal & Relieve Pain from Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI)!

 

doctor consulting about acute tendonitis

If you're suffering from a repetitive strain injury you've probably had to face the frustration of managing your pain for weeks, months or even years. Sometimes even when you think it's been dealt with (and healed) you'll wind up with the same pain months or years later.

When you have a repetitive strain injury you'll always be at risk of suffering from the same injury over and over again. This is because any injury caused by repetitive activity or placement of your fingers, hands, wrists, elbows, arms, shoulders, back, hips, legs or feet is based on a long-term pattern of the way you move. This activity is triggered by movement that's on-going in your life - like a 9 to 5 desk job with extensive computer work, picking and packing parcels for 8 to 12 hours per day, or even operating heavy duty (vibrating) machinery regularly.


There are only 2 ways you can deal with the chronic pain once and for all:
  1. Permanently stop the activities causing your injury (and any other related activities that could make this injury comeback).

OR

  1. Work with the activity by treating your injury on a continuous basis with conservative treatment methods and adjusting your posture, workspace or technique.

Repetitive strain injuries can happen to your shoulder, elbow, wrist, back, hip, leg, knee, ankle and foot.

Surgery is also another thing to think about, but having a surgical procedure will end up forcing you to choose 1 of those options in the end. Even after the surgery is done, you'll be returning to your job or activities that caused the injury in the first place.

Without proper care and attention you'll wind up with the same injury all over again. It may take months or years but it'll still happen. And that's because you haven't made the choice to stop the cycle of repetitive use OR adjust your activities and treatment.


If you've gotten this injury from your job you're probably thinking to yourself:

"I'm not quitting my job... I have bills to pay!"


If this is a condition from an activity you love (like playing music, gardening, designing, painting, etc.) then you're probably asking yourself:

"Do I really need to give up the things I love to do?"



You don't have to make these sacrifices to live a full, happy and healthy life. If you choose not to give these things up then you're automatically deciding to go for option 2. This means continuously treating your condition with conservative treatment methods and adjusting your activities.

Even though this sounds complicated it's actually surprisingly easy. Thousands of people are already treating themselves in ways to avoid surgery or live off of pain medications. Why should a repetitive strain injury be any different?

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

This is as simple as making sure that your have proper blood flow circulation while healing your injury. You can even maintain good health in that area with continued Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) treatments. If you're suffering from on-going pain, inflammation or swelling in the area, then consistent treatment with cold compression is a very effective way to manage those symptoms. Adjusting your activity will only ever really involve taking a good look at your posture, workspace and technique.

Fortunately for you there are tools available to help you do all of these things!

Using Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy and cold compression to treat repetitive strain injuries is nothing new. Professional athletes have had access to state of the art treatment therapies for years that allow them to heal more quickly and completely than you or I. This is why athletes that have repetitive strain injuries can often get back in the game in a matter of weeks while you could suffer for months or even years.

With some breakthrough products we have engineered, professional treatment is now available to anyone who needs it.

If you want to be proactive about properly dealing with your repetitive strain injury, speak to your doctor about adding AidYourTendon's system utilizing BFST® and ColdCure Technology® to round out your treatment.

The AidYourTendon therapeutic at-home healing system gives you:

Our Freezie Wraps provide consistent cold compression ideal for acute tendonitis injuries.
  • Products that are approved by the FDA for use in the hospital or at home.
  • Cold compression Freezie Wraps® that relieve pain, inflammation and swelling fast with consistent cold temperatures that WON'T reach temperatures so low that it causes cryoburn (like ice or blue gel packs full of anti-freeze and chemicals).
  • Food-grade, non-toxic gel packs that can be chilled in the fridge or freezer.
  • Inferno Wraps® with deeply penetrating Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy right into your deep tissue where you need treatment most (unlike other methods that just heat your skin - like hot water bottles, hot baths, etc.)

What is a Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI)?


"Repetitive Stress / Strain Injury" or "RSI" is a general term that's used to describe many conditions including Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), de Quervain's Disease, Writer's Cramp, Trigger Finger, Vibration-induced White Finger, Radial Tunnel Syndrome, bursitis, tendinitis (tendonitis), and tenosynovitis.

Repetitive moving, such as scrubbing or washing, can lead to a repetitive stress injury (RSI).

There are also many names used for similar conditions, some of them include: repetitive motion injuries, repetitive motion disorder (RMD), cumulative trauma disorder (CTD), occupational overuse syndrome, overuse syndrome, regional musculoskeletal disorder and work related upper limb disorder (WRULD, ULD).

All forms of repetitive stress injuries are painful and uncomfortable with damage occurring in your muscles, tendons, nerves and/or other soft tissues.

A repetitive stress injury usually occurs after the age of 30 and is a result of wear and tear from the overuse of muscles, tendons, joints and ligaments as you age. These repetitive motion injuries can occur in the shoulders, back, neck, hands, hips, wrists, elbows and lower limbs.


What are the Symptoms of a Repetitive Stress Injury?

You may experience some of these symptoms depending on the area of your body that's affected by a repetitive strain injury (RSI):

Quickly reduce pain, swelling, tenderness, redness and inflammation with consistent cold compression Freezie Wrap treatments.
  • Tenderness, swelling, and redness in the affected muscle or joint.
  • Pain when you move the area that may cause you to wake throughout the night.
  • Stiffness in the affected muscles, tendons, joints and bones.
  • A throbbing (pulsating) sensation in the affected area
  • Pins and needles (tingling) in the affected area, especially the hand or arm
  • Loss of sensation (numbness) in the hand of the affected limb
  • Loss of strength in the muscle
  • Discomfort brought on by a particular task that improves when it is stopped - i.e., when pain lessens or disappears over weekends or during holidays away from work.

Your symptoms may tend to develop slowly over time and only occur when you're doing the repetitive task. These symptoms may also seem to get better or decrease with rest. The pain can range from mild to severe, as time goes on you may notice the pain is present all the time and gets worse by doing the repetitive task or activity that's caused your injury.


What Causes a Repetitive Stress/Strain Injury?

Kneeling during work everyday, like tiling or scrubbing floors, puts excess pressure on the knee tendons and bursa which can cause repetitive stress injuries.

It's possible for some people to develop RSI while others won't even when doing the same tasks for similar periods of time. The reason is not clear as to why you can develop this condition. What is known is that daily repetitive movements (typically longer than 2 hours per day) involving the work in a factory (soldering or assembling pieces), office (typing or clicking a mouse), or warehouse (lifting or twisting) can lead to RSI.

Some other causes of this condition include:

  • Having poor posture while working at a desk or awkward positioning while performing tasks such as shoveling, sliding, lifting, and twisting.
  • Improper posture while standing or sitting can cause a repetitive strain injury.
  • Heavy loads and forceful exertion on the soft tissue (bursae, muscles, tendons, joints, and ligaments) that cause trauma or fatigue.
  • Frequent vibrations that cause blood vessels to constrict and impair circulation.
  • Repeating the same movement during a sport or leisure activity such as gardening.
  • Failing to rest the affected area or missing break periods needed periodically while performing repetitive movements (activities or at work).

We are more than happy to help you heal your tendonitis with conservative treatment options such as BFST and ColdCure Technology

What Type of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)
do You Have?


Neck Injuries
  • Cervical Spondylosis - osteoarthritis that affects your neck. Pressure from carrying heavy load on your head on a regular basis, driving for long hours on a daily basis or working for long hours daily hunched over a computer. Encourages the natural degeneration of the spine bones.

Shoulder Injuries
Click here to Buy a Shoulder Inferno Wrap
  • Adhesive Capsulitis (Frozen Shoulder) - using a computer with poor posture and incorrect ergonomics of the workstation. Over-time misalignment of your back, shoulder blade and upper arm puts more stress on the ligaments and tendons around your shoulder.

  • Rotator Cuff Syndrome - Holding a phone receiver between your cheek and shoulder, incorrect posture and work station putting stress on the shoulder area, overloading backpack or laptop bag with too many heavy items. Overworking or extra stress to the tendon causes micro-tearing to a tendon tissue. Rotator Cuff Syndrome also includes shoulder Bursitis (Subacromial), Rotator Cuff Tendonitis and Impingement Syndrome

  • Biceps tendinitis (tendonitis) - repeated scrubbing motion. The overuse of the tendon cause small micro-tearing to a tendon tissue.

Elbow / Arm Injuries
Click here to Buy the Elbow Inferno Wrap
  • Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) - forceful backward bending of the wrist when painting with a brush. Computers users, 'mouse elbow' or laptop touchpad users. The consistent pressure with the hand and fingers cause small micro-tearing to a tendon at the elbow.

  • Cubital Tunnel Syndrome (medial epicondylitis) - pressure applied over a long period of time to the ulnar nerve in the elbow, such as leaning your arm against a table on the inner part of your elbow or repetitive movements of the arm bending and straightening with or without heavy items.

Wrist / Hand Injuries
  • De Quervain's Disease - repeated twisting of the wrist or pinching motions. The repetitive movement of the fingers and thumb with or without weight, causes micro-tearing to a tendon.

  • Trigger Finger / Thumb - repetitive use of hand, in where you are gripping on power tool, hammer or broom too tightly. Causes damage to the tendon and nodules form restricting the movement of the tendon and pulls the finger into a locked position.

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) - is a name for a group of wrist related problems, Computer users, cell phone users, PDA users. Many activities / hobbies involving repetitive hand movements, awkward hand positions, strong gripping or vibration - like sewing, knitting, and gardening, tailor, production sewer, farmer, assembly-line worker, mechanic, gardener, painter, office worker, cashier, and butcher. The tendon sheath becomes inflamed and swells trapping the tendons and nerves in the wrist. CTS cause pain, range of motion loss and in some people loss of feeling.

  • Cramp of the Hand (Writers' Cramp) - over-use of the hand and/or gripping a pen too hard.

  • Vibration-induced White Finger - a cumulative condition related to the use of hand-held power tools.

Knee Injuries
  • Housemaid's Knee (pre-patellar bursitis) - long periods of time kneeling to tile or scrub a floor. Pressure on the bursa causes the fluid filled bursa sac to become inflamed swollen and very painful.

Injuries that can Affect any Area in the Body
  • Bursitis - all joints in the body have a bursa sac, to provide lubrication, direct pressure to the surround area. The bursa becomes inflamed, swollen and very painful.

  • Ganglion Cyst - The cyst is basically a soft sac filled with a thick, clear fluid. Cysts most commonly show up in the wrist, hand, ankle, feet and near other joints. The cyst enlarges may or may not cause pain, but can cause range of motion loss if the cyst becomes too large.

  • Tendinitis - damage and/or micro-tearing to a tendon (closest to bone), to much force on the tendon (lifting heavy items) or push pull action to the tendon (swing a golf club).

  • Peritendinitis - similar to tendonitis, but it's damage and/or micro-tearing to a tendon closest to the connection point to muscle.

  • Tenosynovitis - damage, micro-tearing and/or inflammation of the sheath covering your tendon.

Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) Treatments -
What You Can Do!

Step 1 - Reduce Activities
scar tissue restricts tissue fibers

Allowing your injury to rest is always recommended following injury. Avoid all activities that may have caused the injury or irritation. The healing process takes time! To repair our damaged tissue quickly, our bodies will use scar tissue to fill in the tears in the any soft tissue injury. Often times not giving your tissue enough time to heal leads to re-injury and may develop a chronic issue with your damaged soft tissue. If you need to rest for an extended period of time and avoid certain activities that make your pain worse, you'll be more likely to develop massive amounts of this scar tissue as a temporary healing measure.

Scar tissue may plague you for weeks, months and maybe even years, depending on your level of activity and the amount of conservative treatments you have done during your rehabilitation. Scar tissue is a major problem, especially when it comes to re-injury of your tendon. When dealing with scar tissue it's always important to:

  • listen well to your physician and if conservative treatments are recommended, remember to stick to your (daily) treatment plan using these therapies.
  • frequent use of the Freezie Wrap® will help reduce the swelling very quickly. Much of the pain you feel will be from the swelling, and you'd be surprised how fast the pain drops off once the swelling is down.
  • the Inferno Wrap® is a safe, electromagnetic energy device that will help reduce scar tissue and increase blood flow to the area (thereby accelerating the body's own healing process).
  • when applied before stretching, the Inferno Wrap® will help flush the area with fresh blood. This will help improve your range of motion and prevent re-injury.

Step 2 - Reduce Pain and Swelling with Cold Compression

The first step for conservative treatment of your injury 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 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.

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

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 up until now.

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.

A Freezie Wrap® allows you to treat your injury in an effective and convenient way. Our Freezie Wraps® will fit your injury 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 and stay flexible even right out of the freezer! 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.

 

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®

 

I'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 injury and pain head on.

Use a Cold Compression Freezie Wrap®:

  • 24 to 72 hours after your initial 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 injury.
  • Before and after surgery during rehabilitation to control pre and post-surgery pain and swelling.
  • Anytime you feel your injury has been over-extended, over-worked, twisted, strained or sprained causing pain and swelling.
  • Anytime you have swelling, sharp throbbing pain or inflammation in the area of injury.
  • 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 around your injured tendon has been reduced, you need to provide extra blood flow to strengthen your tissue.

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 injury much worse. Relying on movement alone to increase blood flow puts you in danger of re-injuring your tendon, bursa or muscle that has been affected

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


Using Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®), will help with your recovery and heal your injury more completely. BFST® increases the amount of blood that flows naturally to your soft tissue to nourish your tendons, ligaments, muscles, improving elasticity and speeding the healing process. This increased Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy to your injury is greatly needed.

Deep heat for healing with an Inferno Wrap speeds-up 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 / heating 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 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 may even burn you.

The best source of heat 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 heat 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.
How to Order

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 for heating treatment. Our manufacturer has spent years perfecting the wrap design to make sure you get the treatment you deserve!

Use a BFST Inferno Wrap®:

  • 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 the tendons have stiffened up, are 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 of your tissue.

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,

My back is feeling better. Regular heating pads don't seem to work as well as the Inferno - I would assume due to their lack of penetration. The Inferno Wrap is of good benefit at this point. Thanks for a great product.

Dear MendMeShop,

You are an outstanding company with great service! I have bought both the back/hip and leg inferno wraps, though I sent the leg wrap back and exchanged it for another back/hip inferno (for a friend). My friend liked the back inferno wrap so much he bought the second one from me as soon as he used it.

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'm grateful for the Inferno products. After a month or so, I began to feel so much better with my shoulder, leg, and my back. It's a magnificent healing product. I recommend it to everyone I know. If it weren't for your product, I would have had to have surgery and who is to say that would have worked - or made it worse. Appreciate all your help.

Dear MendMeShop,

So far, so good! I've used the shoulder treatment 4x a day for a week now and seen a marked improvement in my shoulder with both flex ability and pain relief. P.S. As a follow up one week after the initial comments... Indeed, after a couple weeks of use, the pain totally subsided. Thanks!!!
