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 wanted to get back to you with feedback about the Inferno Wrap. So far we are very pleased with the size, light weight, flexibility and comfort of the wrap. It is very convenient the way the cord is set up. If one has to leave the area for a moment it is much easier now because instead of removing the entire wrap or unplugging the whole thing from the wall, you can just detach at the segment. I like the on/off switch, too. It is much easier to see which setting it is on. Everything about this new product seems more intelligent and user friendly. A lot of thought was put into improving on the old product. Well done to all involved!!!

Dear MendMeShop,

I recently purchased the Inferno Wrap from mendmeshop and have been using it every day for several weeks now. I started seeing positive results the second or third time I used it. I'm not sure what caused the sudden discomfort in my shoulder, but when I first experienced it, I went on line and googled "Torn Rotator Cuff" After reading about the shoulder joint, I saw the information from the mendmeshop. Several years ago I purchased a similar device from your company for a knee injury.. I had very good results with the heat treatment, so when I saw the Inferno Wrap, I knew from past experience that it was probably going to work. The shoulder discomfort has gone, but I still continue to use the Inferno Wrap every day. Hats off to the Mendmeshop for providing such instant and positive relief.

Dear MendMeShop,

I am a retired Orthopedic Surgical Registered Nurse First Asst and I just want to say this Shoulder Inferno Wrap is wonderful. I have had adhesive capsulitis in my left shoulder several times. I am 67yo now and I have Arthritis, Lupus and fibromyalgia and I had bilat knee replacements in 2001. It has always taken about 6months to get back use of my arm and to get relief from pain. I read your information and was expecting it to take at least 6weeks to see an improvement. I have used it this short time since receiving it and I am almost painfree. Occasionally I start to feel a little ache and I put it back on before it becomes pain I have full range of motion when I could not brush my hair or fasten my bra. Again, I am so pleased and hope it helps others too. Jane P.S. I would like to encourage others to try the products and see if they get the same remarkable results as I did. I continue to improve with full ROM remaining and only occasional episodes of pain; As soon as I feel any pain, I use it 2-3 days in a row and the pain is gone. This is probably Arthritis as it feels different.

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!

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

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,

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,

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 ordered an Achilles/Ankle “Inferno Wrap” and a Back/Hip “Inferno Wrap” which arrived within 48 HOURS. These wonderful products produced remarkable results from their very first application! Day One: Initial Treatment @ 9:00 AM on the Low Setting for 20 minutes Second Treatment (same day) @ 12:00 NOON for 20 minutes Third Treatment (same day) @ 3:00 PM for 20 minutes Fourth Treatment (same day) @ BEDTIME for 20 minutes “Rinse & Repeat” every day now… My range of movement and the reduction of discomfort in my Achilles Tendons improved by at least 90% IMMEDIATELY. As for my chronic lower-back trouble that is the long-term result of a “minor exercising mishap” 45 years ago, which randomly flares up on a regular basis.. I am now enjoying Instant Relief thanks to the application of my Back Inferno Wrap whenever I experience any episode of neuro-muscular discomfort !!! I’ll keep you posted as time goes by, but I wanted to say right away, “THANK YOU so much for everything”!

Dear MendMeShop,

Thank you for spending time answering my questions and concerns on the Knee Inferno Wrap and wrist products and how to use them. I appreciate that, and I am impressed with your company's personal availability to personally talk with customers. In a fast pace, seemingly no care, 'all out for my benefit' mentality in our society it is refreshing to know I can go on-line and there are people doing business who do care for their product and the people buying them.
I went on-line to find help in treating my very painful meniscus and other issues Arthroscopic surgery on my right knee, that were more severe that my left knee issues had been, so I could find help in speeding up my recovery and get back on my feet again. Having had the same surgery on my left knee only 6 months prior, I was not able to recover as fast as my left knee had not yet fully recovered enough to take the full load of both knees. The Dr. said nothing about recovery only that I could not even put toe weight on my right knee for 4 weeks. So, with my left knee still in recovery this made life extremely difficult. So much so, I had to go to a wheel chair so I would not ruin either of my knees or my back which is suffering from degenerative discs. My knee issues stem from aging and over-use over the years. They are just wearing out.
I am an active person and was not going to consign myself to a wheel chair for the rest of my life. I had no access to physical therapy treatments in my personal situation. So, I took the bull by the horns and got busy finding out what I could do to help myself recover faster and get back in action physically. And I found your company.
I started my personal quest on Internet, which is all I was able to do physically at the time, and found your company, MendMeShop.com. I read all your info and was impressed with what I read and felt comfortable that you were genuine and were out to help me fully recover. The fully guaranteed refund was a plus to me so that I would not spend a lot lf money for something that I would be stuck with and as well did me no good.
You also had a personal way to contact your company to discuss any concerns I might have in using it. You also had expedited mailing so that I could have your product in a few days so I could get started in my recovery. I was willing to pay the extra mailing cost to get the product faster. You really came through on your end and I had my Inferno Knee Wrap in just a few days. That really firmed up to me that you back up your claims about your product and that you truly cared about me and so I could get onto faster recovery sooner.
After receiving the Inferno Knee Wrap, I was having personal issues in how often to use the Knee Wrap and so I called you to help me with this. I felt that the knee wrap was helping me, but I was finding that I could not use it to the fullest degree the instructions mentioned. You helped me and told me to call you back. From your recommendations, I started experimenting on my own to see what would work for me and I found a workable solution for me personally. Each person is unique and what works for one person may not work for another. So, I recommend not giving up and returning this product until you find what works for you.
Because my knee issues are so severe, it will take longer than I want it to, but I am plugging away and using the Inferno Knee Wrap along with stationery bike exercise and I am seeing progress each day.
Thank you for being there when I needed help in recovery of Arthroscopic Knee Surgery. I appreciate you and your company.

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.

Dear MendMeShop,

As a professional athlete, my body takes a lot of abuse during training. Boxing is very strenuous on the arms and shoulders and I have had a rotator cuff injury for the past two years. The shoulders don't get a lot of blood flow, so injuries don't heal properly on their own. The injury had gotten so bad, I thought I might have to retire from the ring. Then I started using the Inferno Wrap and the Freezie Wrap every day. I use the Inferno Wrap before my workouts to relax and loosen up the muscles in my shoulder and increase the circulation. After a hard training session (sometimes up to 3 hours), I use the Freezie Wrap to deal with any remaining inflammation. My shoulder has felt better in the past two months than it has in the past two years! I highly recommend both of these products to anyone with a chronic injury who is saddled with daily pain. -Molly McConnell Top World ranked professional female boxer

What are Plantar Plate Tears?


Painful plantar plate tears are treated best with cold compression and blood flow stimulation therapy

Your foot is a complex area of the body, it's small compared to the rest of your body but it's packed full of tendons, ligaments, muscles and bones. Each toe in your foot has a small fibrous band of tissue called a ligament that connects the foot bones to the toe bones. The plantar plate(s) are a special type of ligament that is super strong and flexible. These plantar plates' job is to help pull your toes down toward to the floor. The plate helps stabilize your toe from shifting side-to-side and maintains the toe in its correct position. Each foot contains four of these plantar plates, one for each toe except the big toe, which does not have a plantar ligament plate.


What are the symptoms of a Plantar Plate Tear


Where you feel plantar plate pain in your foot.

If you're suffering with plantar plate tears you may feel as if you're 'walking on the bones of your foot'. You could have pain beneath your 2nd (this is the most common area of pain), 3rd or 4th toes that gets worse with walking, jumping or running. You may have felt a tearing sensation when the injury originally happened. The toe could have dislocated and 'popped' back into place.

If you're suffering with a lot of pain you may develop a limp to avoid the pain and placing any weight on your foot. You may also notice swelling and redness on the top of you foot. If your plantar plate injury is severe you may have had bruising near or over the affected toe. If left untreated, your foot/toe will develop a toe deformity called 'hammer toe'.


What Causes of Plantar Plate Tears?


Excessive upward motion on your toes can damage your plantar plate.

Acute injury: Plantar plate injury can come from:

  • A sudden and excessive upward motion of the toe.
  • Pushing too hard on your toes from a standing position to a run.
  • Standing on your tiptoes and pushing upwards on your weight.
  • Walking too much.


Chronic injury: This type of plantar plate injury has developed over time. The ligament suffers from micro-tears in the tissue and is stretched out. You may have had a sudden acute injury at first but left untreated and undiagnosed it has not healed and turned 'chronic'. The most common cause of chronic plantar plate tears is when your feet over-pronate or roll inward. It's very common for middle aged women to experience plantar plate tears as the foot is rolling inward when they walk. Over time a chronic injury may lead to a severely deformed toe that is locked out of normal position.


An untreated Plantar Plate Injury
Can Lead to a Secondary Injury or Foot / Toe Deformity

 


What's Overcompensation Pain?


overcompensation pain because of a plantar plate pain is an uphill battle

Long-term changes in your gait (the way you walk) - like shuffling or limping to reduce pain around your toes, can impact other areas of your body and possibly result in something called 'overcompensation pain'.

Everything in the human body is connected. A plantar plate injury can lead to other injuries over time if not treated properly. You might start limping or shuffling because of your injured foot and place more weight on your opposite, healthy foot. Limping your way around for a long period of time may lead to pain in the heel of your foot, knee, hip or lower back on your injured side because you are mis-aligning your entire leg. The goal is to prevent secondary injuries while letting your toes heal. If you are changing the way you walk - try keeping your foot straight and off to the side to compensate for the injury.

Any injury left untreated can lead to overcompensation pain. Dealing with the injury quickly and healing completely should be your main focus. Plantar plate healing takes time... You can speed up your body's natural healing with very simple steps - like using cold compression, rest and blood flow stimulation therapy.


How Do I Diagnose a Plantar Plate Tear?


plantar plate rupture Xray

It's important to find out what's wrong with your foot. Plantar plate injuries are often misdiagnosed as they are similar to some other injuries that affect the foot. This is very true for those who are very active or enjoy running sports. When seeing your doctor they will discuss your medical history and examine your foot, heel and ankle for any deformities or inflammation (swelling, redness, heat, pain). They will also look at your flexibility, stability, and gait (the way you walk). Occasionally an x-ray of your foot will help rule out Metatarsal (toe) Stress Fractures. An MRI can be used to provide a complete and accurate diagnosis of any injury to the soft tissue (ligaments) in your toes. In some cases the doctor will request blood tests to rule out diseases or infections.


Do You Really have a Plantar Plate Tear?

Our feet are some of the most complicated joints in our bodies with 26 bones, 33 joints and more than 100 tendons, muscles and ligaments (reference: 1).

Toe pain can come from injuries to the soft tissue in the foot or to one of the many tiny small bones, some of the more common injuries being:

  • Foot bursitis - Bursitis can occur in the toe joints, the side of the foot, the heel and around the ankle. As we walk, run or jump, the ground surface and the shoes we wear play an important role in how much trauma our feet experience. Every step can cause a small amount of damage to a particular area in the foot which can increase the risk of bursitis.
    foot or toe bursitis can be the cause of foot pain
  • Morton's neuroma - This condition usually causes burning pain in the ball of the foot that may radiate into the toes. The pain generally intensifies with activity or wearing shoes. You may sometimes feel that you are "walking on a marble," and you have persistent pain in the ball of your foot. You may also have numbness in the toes. Neuroma is often the misdiagnosis of plantar plate tears the two conditions have similar symptoms.
  • Metatarsalgia - This condition can also cause pain in the ball of your foot, that area between your arch and the toes. Metatarsalgia is a common overuse injury, persistent stress can lead to chronic irritation and inflammation of the bone covering and surrounding tissues, such as ligaments and tendons.
  • Sesamoiditis - The big toe has two very tiny bones embedded in tendon tissue in the ball of the foot. Any type of injury to the tendon tissue can cause irritation in and around the sesamoid bones. This condition can also cause pain in the ball of your foot, that big toe. Sesamoiditis is a common overuse injury, persistent stress can lead to chronic irritation.
  • Plantar Fasciitis - Pain associated with plantar fasciitis normally starts as a dull ache and then progresses to a sharp, knife-like pain or constant throbbing feeling that is worse when you put weight on your foot. The most tender areas tend to be in the center of your heel and along the inside and bottom of your foot towards your toes, where your heel and arch meet.
  • Turf toe - This can happen when the big toe joint is pushed beyond its' normal range (backwards or downwards). A 'pop' is felt at the moment the injury happens followed by sharp immediate pain. Symptoms include swelling in the foot, the entire big toe joint is affected and limits the motion in the toe.
  • Pre-dislocation syndrome, crossover toe deformity and floating toe syndrome are terms related to a plantar plate tear or sprain.

 


How Do I Cure Plantar Plate Tear? -
What You Can Do!

We Have Advanced Treatment Tools to Help You
Speed Up Healing of Your Plantar Plate Tear!

First your doctor will perform a physical exam of your foot.

The good news is that most plantar plate tears will heal with simple home conservative treatments and surgery is often not needed!

It's generally understood by doctors and surgeons, that surgery will introduce more scar tissue into the foot. This added scar tissue will be problematic, requiring physical therapy and conservative treatment options post-surgery. When it comes to a plantar plate tear, rupture, and bone fractures there's only a few surgical options for treatment - sutures are used to repair the torn tissue. This is why surgery is only performed as a last resort for chronic plantar plate injuries, complete rupture or a fractured metatarsal bone that won't heal with conservative treatment methods.

Some conservative treatment methods recommended include:

  • Rest - This is important for initial healing because without proper rest you're at risk for increased pain and inflammation. You can even end up causing more damage to the already weakened tissue. This can make your plantar plate injury even worse and turn an acute injury into a chronic one.
  • Avoid Activities that Caused Your Injury - While resting your foot it's also important to avoid all activities that may have caused your plantar plate tear (especially any repetitive toe or foot movement). Continuing on with regular activities will not only make your injury worse, but limping / shuffling just to get by can also wind up giving you overcompensation pain in other areas of your body.
  • First your doctor will perform a physical exam of your foot.
  • Apply Cold Compression - Immediate cold (using a Plantar/Spur Freezie Wrap®) will help you to manage pain while getting rid of the pain and inflammation. Immediate pain relief and reduced inflammation can also relieve some of the pressure that's being placed on your toe and stop your injury from getting worse.
  • Use Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy - After any inflammation and/or swelling has been reduced, you can use your own blood flow to maximize healing of damaged tissue and maintain healthy blood flow to your plantar plate. This will boost overall long-term healing of this injury.



Other Conservative Treatment Methods can be Risky

Cortisone (Corticosteroid) Injections

Cortisone injections can be harmful to tendonitis injuries

Some of the options your doctor may recommend include drugs or medications like NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication) to manage pain and inflammation. Alternative medications like cortisone injections are advised with caution for any type of tendon or ligament condition. This is because there is an increased risk of rupture of the plantar plate and other soft tissue in the toe following a cortisone injection.

Doctors won't give you a cortisone shot if it's at all possible that you have a fracture (acute or chronic) in your toe bone. If cortisone is used with even the slightest stress fracturing, the cortisone will make the injury worse by stopping the bone's natural healing process. Over time if left untreated, your plantar will reach a non-healing state and surgery will be more likely needed.

 


Foot support aids for plantar plate tears

A cushioned athletic shoe with a wide toe-box may relieve pressure on you plantar plate injury. Taping the toe down or taping the toe to the neighbouring toes may help the condition from worsening.

  • Wearing wide toe-box, cushioned athletic shoes gives your toes more room. Wearing a stiff-soled shoe like clogs or flat insoles that keep your toe straight, can help to reduce the pressure being placed on your plantar plate(s). For some people, a soft-soled shoe (like flip-flops) are even more comfortable and reduce the pain. If you've recently started wearing a new pair of shoes with a different type of arch support insole then this might even be the reason why you now have foot pain.
  • Orthotics should be custom-made to properly treat and relieve pain from your plantar plate injury.
  • Put Orthotics in Your Shoes - Use of any kind of orthotic or insert for added support in your shoe should always be done through the recommendation of your doctor. There are certain shapes of padded inserts / orthotics that are designed to relieve pressure on the plantar plate and keep your toes straight. You have to be careful with your choice of orthotics and may need to get some custom-made by your doctor because there's always a possibility that using the wrong orthotics will make your injury worse. Plantar metatarsal pad's may by be recommended by your doctor.
  • Tape Your Toe - You can try taping or strapping your toe in a flexed position (bent down) to reduce any pressure placed on your plantar plate injury. Tapping also adds a slight degree of support for the tissue.


Effective Conservative Treatment Options
are Available


If your doctor's decided that your plantar plate tear can be treated with conservative treatment, you can join our many customers who have had great success in treating themselves with the powerful, conservative treatment products we offer through AidYourTendon - the Freezie Wrap® and Inferno Wrap®.

If you need to have surgery, talk to your doctor about using these same products for post-surgery recovery. You'll find them effective for reducing post-surgery inflammation, enhancing range of motion and minimizing the growth of scar tissue in your foot.






What if You Need Surgery?


Whether you need to have surgery and the type of surgery you'll have depends on the severity of your plantar plate tear. The longer you've waited to have surgery or try conservative treatment methods will also be a factor to decide if you need surgery.


Has it been weeks or months since the injury?

 

An acute (recent) case of plantar plate tear is usually treated with conservative treatment methods, like rest, minimizing activity, cold compression and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy as we mentioned before.

Doctors will explore every method of treatment before considering surgery for plantar plate tear.

Doctors and surgeons will always avoid surgery if possible because recovery from the surgery can be a lengthy process. Doctors always prefer minimally invasive treatments which is why they suggest conservative treatment first. Your doctor and surgeon know that a surgery will involve altering the structure of your foot, and so they will recommend treatment to avoid surgery at all costs.

Scar tissue will be problematic for long-term recovery after surgery.


As with any surgery there are risks to every procedure depending on a lot of factors, including your age, the severity of your injury and your level of health going into the procedure. It's always best to discuss all possible risks and complications with your doctor, orthopaedic specialist and/or surgeon before the procedure. It's important to be aware of the risks you may face with any procedure intended to fix or relieve pain from your plantar plate tear.


Plantar Plate tear Surgery


It's generally understood by doctors and surgeons, that surgery will introduce more scar tissue into the plantar plate tissue. This added scar tissue will be problematic, requiring physical therapy and conservative treatment options post-surgery. If not dealt with properly, your toe could end up in worse condition than before the surgery! This is why surgery is only performed as a last resort.

If you and your doctor have decided that your injury is in a state of un-healing and conservative treatments have not worked to correct your plantar plate tear. There are two types of surgical procedures available to repair your plantar plate.


Surgery for a Chronic Plantar Plate Tear/Injury


how will I walk after plantar plate surgery

Surgery involving a correction to your bone will be performed if you suffer from a chronic plantar plate injury that has resulted in your toe raising up off the floor or pulling away and crossing over your other toe(s). In extreme cases you may now have hammertoe that needs to be corrected surgically. Surgery to correct the toe requires a transfer of tendon tissue called a 'flexor to extensor tendon transfer'.

This plantar plate repair is done with sutures to re-position your toe and a tiny amount of bone is removed (removal of this bone is called a 'Weil Osteotomy'). The shortening of the toe allows the surgeon to gain access to the plantar plate and decreases tension and forefoot pressure post-operatively. The goal of the surgery is to relieve pain at the bottom of your toe, re-align the toe and bring the toe back down toward the floor.

Use cold compression to reduce pain and swelling after plantar plate surgery

You may be fitted with a hard cast or a surgical shoe that you may have to wear for approximately 6 weeks. The amount of time you'll have to wear this cast depends on the amount of work the surgeon had to perform to fix your plantar plate and correct your toe. In most cases this is an 'out patient' surgery where you will arrive that morning and leave the same day as your surgery (no hospital stay is required).

During post-surgery recovery after care is very important in order to keep the toe in the proper position while healing. Depending on the type of that you have job you may need to take at least one week off (especially if extensive standing, walking, climbing, etc is involved). Consistent cold compression is important during early recovery to reduce swelling, inflammation and naturally treat any pain. Your surgeon will schedule a follow-up visit 1 to 2 weeks after surgery to check your toe and the incision site. You may have a temporary cast or bandage removed if you were originally placed in one right after surgery and begin wearing a more permanent, hard, surgical cast. Another method your doctor may use is tapping your toe to reduce pressure. If your toe is taped, this tape will need to stay on for about 6 weeks.

plantar plate exercise for healing plantar plate injury

Around the 2nd or 3rd week of recovery, your surgeon will have you begin stretching and exercising your toes. Exercises may include crunches by picking up a marble with your toes. Transitioning back into regular shoes usually happens around 6 weeks, but this depends on how well you're healing. At this point you may begin to walk more normally and become less flat-footed. Your regular check-ups with your surgeon and your overall healing progress will be the guide. It may take up to 12 weeks for you to return to other normal activities - like walking briskly or jogging.


New Plantar Plate Surgical Technique


New plantar plate surgical techniques use an incision on the top of the foot.

One of the new techniques of performing a plantar plate surgery involves the use of smaller tools and an incision site on the top of your foot. This new technique provides quicker recovery and less risk of postoperative problems than the traditional method we already mentioned. An incision at the top of the foot actually makes your recovery faster because it means you won't be stepping on your incision (in your cast or with the aid of crutches) while trying to recover.

You should always discuss the type of surgery your doctor plans to perform before you have your surgery. As with any surgery, there are many complications that can arise and so it's always important to discuss all possible complications with your surgeon to choose the correct path for your recovery.


Surgery isn't the end of your journey, it's merely the beginning long-term healing and recovery from your plantar plate injury.

 





Use These Conservative Treatment Methods to
Avoid Surgery & Speed Healing After Surgery!


If you think you're suffering from a plantar plate tear,

First your doctor will perform a physical exam of your foot.
  • Usually conservative treatment methods are all that's needed to treat a plantar plate tear, surgery is only ever used if long-term conservative treatment methods don't work or if you've suffered from a plantar plate rupture, hammertoe or a deformity in your toes/foot. Conservative treatment options for plantar plate injury typically includes rest, icing of the injury, avoiding activities that cause or worsen the pain that you're feeling, wearing comfortable shoes that keep your toes straight and anti-inflammatory over-the-counter medication (reference: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).
  • Second, if your doctor has decided that your injury can be treated with conservative treatment options, then you'll find that many of our customers have had great success treating themselves with our powerful conservative treatment products - the Freezie Wrap® and Inferno Wrap®.
  • Or, if surgical intervention is required, talk with your doctor about using these same products for post-surgery recovery as you'll find them to be effective for reducing post-surgery inflammation, enhancing range of motion and reducing scar tissue growth.

No one is immune to plantar plate injury, you can easily reduce your risk of further injury with consistent conservative treatments

 

Step 1 - Reduce Pain & Swelling with Cold Compression

The 1st step for conservative treatment of your plantar plate 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 plantar plate injuries. This is why for years doctors, trainers and other medical professional have recommended RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) to treat the pain and swelling of fresh injuries, chronic pain, and after any re-injury.

when you should cold or hot for a plantar plate 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 antifreeze 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.

The Freezie Wrap® allows you to treat your foot in an effective and convenient way. Our Freezie Wraps® will wrap around your foot keeping the cold right under your plantar plate 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 foot and it won't budge for the entire treatment period. You'll no longer have to deal with annoying pooling around your foot 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.

 

Use cold compression to reduce pain and swelling after plantar plate surgery

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 plantar plate, you also limit the amount of healing that needs to occur. This is a very important step to heal plantar plate injuries faster and with less pain! This is why you need to treat your plantar plate foot 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 around your toe under control! After you get rid of the swelling for good you can start dealing with your toe 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 around your toes to stop cellular damage, relieve pain, and decrease swelling.
  • After exercise, workouts or activity of any kind to prevent re-injury of your toe.
  • Before and after surgery during rehabilitation to control pre and post-surgery pain and swelling.
  • Anytime you feel your plantar plate has made your foot tender, painful or you're having a flare-up of an old plantar plate injury.
  • Anytime you have swelling, sharp throbbing pain or inflammation in your plantar plate or around your toes.
  • Any other situation where you need to draw the pain and inflammation out of your foot.
 


Step 2 - Improve Circulation, Soften Scar Tissue & Prevent Re-Injury with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy

After the inflammation in your foot has been reduced, providing extra blood flow and strengthening your plantar plate tissue is recommended.

healing your plantar plate

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

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 your soft tissue in your toe 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 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 around your plantar plate increasing the blood flow right in your deep tissue.


  • When treating plantar plate or any soft tissue foot injury, an effective therapy will increase blood flow to the injury while your foot 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.
First your doctor will perform a physical exam of your foot.

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 your foot 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 tissue in your foot has stiffened up, is tight and your mobility is reduced causing you more pain.
  • Anytime you have sore or aching tissue in your injured toe.
  • Any other situation where you need to increase blood flow to your plantar plate to relax your soft tissue, 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,

I have been using the Freeze Wraps to reduce the inflammation, for which they worked great. Last week was the first time I tried the Infernowrap on my right knee and it seems to help just from one treatment. I plan to use it every night when I get back from work. I used the knee Inferno wrap again last night and put it on the medium power and it's helping tremendously. I'm able to bend my knee better and walk with more stability without leaning too much on my left knee to compensate for the injured knee.

Dear MendMeShop,

I have to admit, I fully expected to be returning my order. (inferno wrap, freezie wrap) I told my wife "this is a lot of money and if doesn't work I'm sending it back", "I've got 60 days". Well after about 9 days of (2) treatments per day my severe case of Lateral Epicondylitis (tennis elbow) is almost pain free. I tried wearing the over the counter tendon support brace with absolutely no results. My elbow pain was so bad I couldn't sleep at night and just knew I was going to have to see a doctor. Then I found your website. I was very impressed with the quality of your wraps, very thick and made form high quality materials. I guess the old adage "you get what you pay for" speaks volumes here. I'm completely sold on your products and won't be returning anything!!! Thank you for helping heal my tennis elbow and I've already told many of my friends about your web site. 100% satisfied Cameron Caldwell from Meriden, KS.

Dear MendMeShop,

As a professional athlete, my body takes a lot of abuse during training. Boxing is very strenuous on the arms and shoulders and I have had a rotator cuff injury for the past two years. The shoulders don't get a lot of blood flow, so injuries don't heal properly on their own. The injury had gotten so bad, I thought I might have to retire from the ring. Then I started using the Inferno Wrap and the Freezie Wrap every day. I use the Inferno Wrap before my workouts to relax and loosen up the muscles in my shoulder and increase the circulation. After a hard training session (sometimes up to 3 hours), I use the Freezie Wrap to deal with any remaining inflammation. My shoulder has felt better in the past two months than it has in the past two years! I highly recommend both of these products to anyone with a chronic injury who is saddled with daily pain. -Molly McConnell Top World ranked professional female boxer

Dear MendMeShop,

I recently purchased the Inferno Wrap from mendmeshop and have been using it every day for several weeks now. I started seeing positive results the second or third time I used it. I'm not sure what caused the sudden discomfort in my shoulder, but when I first experienced it, I went on line and googled "Torn Rotator Cuff" After reading about the shoulder joint, I saw the information from the mendmeshop. Several years ago I purchased a similar device from your company for a knee injury.. I had very good results with the heat treatment, so when I saw the Inferno Wrap, I knew from past experience that it was probably going to work. The shoulder discomfort has gone, but I still continue to use the Inferno Wrap every day. Hats off to the Mendmeshop for providing such instant and positive relief.

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,

I wanted to get back to you with feedback about the Inferno Wrap. So far we are very pleased with the size, light weight, flexibility and comfort of the wrap. It is very convenient the way the cord is set up. If one has to leave the area for a moment it is much easier now because instead of removing the entire wrap or unplugging the whole thing from the wall, you can just detach at the segment. I like the on/off switch, too. It is much easier to see which setting it is on. Everything about this new product seems more intelligent and user friendly. A lot of thought was put into improving on the old product. Well done to all involved!!!

Dear MendMeShop,

I am a retired Orthopedic Surgical Registered Nurse First Asst and I just want to say this Shoulder Inferno Wrap is wonderful. I have had adhesive capsulitis in my left shoulder several times. I am 67yo now and I have Arthritis, Lupus and fibromyalgia and I had bilat knee replacements in 2001. It has always taken about 6months to get back use of my arm and to get relief from pain. I read your information and was expecting it to take at least 6weeks to see an improvement. I have used it this short time since receiving it and I am almost painfree. Occasionally I start to feel a little ache and I put it back on before it becomes pain I have full range of motion when I could not brush my hair or fasten my bra. Again, I am so pleased and hope it helps others too. Jane P.S. I would like to encourage others to try the products and see if they get the same remarkable results as I did. I continue to improve with full ROM remaining and only occasional episodes of pain; As soon as I feel any pain, I use it 2-3 days in a row and the pain is gone. This is probably Arthritis as it feels different.

Dear MendMeShop,

The shoulder Inferno wrap seemed to help me. I used it consistently after my shoulder had already been injured for several months, after receiving no real help from 2 visits to orthopedist. I feel that the wrap plus doing my own physical therapy at home and time helped. I'm so thankful My SHOULDER Is FINALLY healed!!!
