Dear MendMeShop,

Just want to let you know that I've had a chance to use the Freeze Wrap. I fell down on my tail bone and injured it slightly. I put the Freeze Wrap on my behind every night while watching TV, and it seems to help it a lot. I alternate between the 2 ice packs, keeping one in the freezer at all times. Thought you might be interested in this for the follow-up of your products. Will recommend your products highly to anyone interested. Sincerely, Irene

Dear MendMeShop,

I am a 57 year old flat footed female, who has suffered off and on for at least 25 years with a painful plantar/heel. Slept in the splint the first night, and like a miracle, no pain in the morning! The splint looks unwieldy, but is actually quite comfortable. Love the Freezie and the Inferno wraps too. Impressed with the quality materials, and the well thought out construction. I've been using cushions in my shoes, but they only help a little bit. I am walking pain free these days and it's almost like a miracle! Thanks again for such a wonderful line of products.

Dear MendMeShop,

I have had my Inferno Wrap for nine days and I love it. I noticed a small difference in only two days. I have a small tear in my meniscus and was in pain most of the time. My knee would slip a lot and it was extremely painful. After one treatment I noticed the difference. I am looking forward to how much better I will get after I really use it for a period of time.

More Muscle Injury Facts:

One common cause of muscle aches and pain is fibromyalgia, a condition that includes tenderness in your muscles and surrounding soft tissue, sleep difficulties, fatigue, and headaches


Muscle pain may also be caused by certain drugs, including: ACE inhibitors for lowering blood pressure and statins for lowering cholesterol


Incomplete healing and re-injury can lead to a build up of scar tissue in the muscle causing further injury. BFST is a very effective treatment to aid in scar tissue breakdown of muscle tissue.


To heal as fast as possible:

  • Rest
  • Use a cold compression wrap to reduce pain, swelling.
  • Use BFST treatments to accelerate the body's natural healing.
  • Avoid pain killers
  • Once swelling is reduced and healing has begun, start stretching the injured joint after warming up with a BFST wrap.(stretching=good, straining=bad)


Typical characteristics of a muscle injury are bruising, weakness, muscle tightness and the inability to stretch the area

Dear MendMeShop,

I would be happy to let you know that I am VERY pleased with the Knee Inferno Wrap that I purchased from your company in June. I suffered from recurring knee problems, pain and swelling when I would exercise or stand too long. I used it as instructed 3-4 times a day along with light cycling and swimming, my knee has improved dramatically!! I absolutely LOVE the Inferno Wrap and continue to use it when I overdo it and feel any discomfort in my knee. It truly does seem to speed up the recovery process. I would recommend your products to others. Thank you for a wonderful product!

Dear MendMeShop,

I am very pleased, especially with the inferno wrap. At first when I received it, I was wondering if it was going to really help, more than my heating pad. I can tell you today, my wrist has gotten so much better! I use the inferno wrap every evening in my down time before heading to bed, on the weekend did use it much more and believe that did help. I had severely stretched/pulled the tendons in my wrist, became very painful, going about the routines of life. I am so very happy with the purchase and am a big fan of the Mendmeshop, thanks for helping me to get my life back on the road to being somewhat normal! I do like the freezie wrap too, being able to put it on and leave it there but still move around. I will surely recommend your site to anyone I know in the future that injures themselves and wants to be on the road to recovery as soon as possible.

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 sustained a re-injury to the lateral right knee in a hiking incident on a wet path. Initially, I treated with anti-inflammatory medication, ice, elevation and knee brace. This injury was very similar to the previous knee injury, so I thought my knee would heal without seeking orthopedic evaluation. I started using a heating pad with a massage feature to relieve pain and found that the heat helped tremendously, but did not radiate deep enough into my knee. Since I am a Certified Rehabilitation RN, I started researching the Internet looking for a product that would provide radiant heat. I was happy to discover your Inferno Knee Wrap. I have been using it several times a day for several weeks and I am now pain free and functionally able to resume all activities. I still continue using the Inferno Knee Wrap on a daily basis in hopes that I can prevent another knee injury. Thank you for such a wonderful product.

Dear MendMeShop,

I just wanted to let you know that your Inferno and Freezie products worked very well for my elbow problem. It did take more time than the initial warranty so I appreciate your company extending this time period. Your communication via email and telephone, explaining the correct procedure for the use of your products, were key. This allowed me to see that I was not using them exactly as I should and it made a big difference. I used them to the letter and today my elbow pain is gone - completely. I was ready to go to a surgeon so this was a much better alternative. Continue the good work!

Dear MendMeShop,

I purchased the Inferno and Freezie because on August 28th my life changed, I was in Florida at the beach taking my last skimboarding run when I heard the dreaded pop and hit from behind. I had in fact after an MRI 2 weeks later ruptured my Achilles Tendon 100%. I was devastated...being 50, an athlete, former track record holder, my life came to a complete standstill. I found your site from an Achilles site with Blogs and I am very grateful. My current condition is nothing short of a miracle. I had surgery two and half weeks ago , surgery was open to repair tendon and was one hour 20 minutes. I was placed in a hard cast with toes down for 1 week, I observed all rules and used crutches 100%. After 1 week cast was removed then I was back in my air cast, I could put absolutely no pressure whatsoever on the repaired leg for 4 days. I received your products and immediately used them. The inferno wrap and freezie are my favorites, I just drove home 200 miles with the inferno wrap on via a 12 volt inverter. Last Saturday night I went out in a flip flop with the injured foot to just get used to having some weight on it. This past week i experimented with different shoes and sneakers and when I attended my second PT session all the swelling and bruising was gone and I had great side to side motion still working on stretching the achilles. Yesterday I drove with sneakers on and walked 1.5 miles on my sons college campus with no crutch, can, etc. Today I wore docksiders and drove home another 200 miles, I am now laying in bed with the Inferno on my left foot which has the intact achilles but it is sore due to disruption of weight from injury, at the same time I have the Freezie on my repaired leg. After reading all the stories on the internet and talking with people as well as knowing of the seriousness of this injury, I believe your products have played a key role to getting me back on my feet and my life headed back to normal 1000 times faster than the average achilles rupture patient. Thank You so much for great products and superior service as well as unprecedented guarantee. I will let you know when I am walking normal without any limp

Dear MendMeShop,

I am a 44 year-old woman in good health. I eat a fresh diet and take high-quality supplements, including MSM, glucosamine, Zyflamend, and all the usual joint-recomended supplements. I injured both knees two years ago while kneeling to tile my family room and entry. Subsequently, a simple twisting squat ripped my left meniscus with a huge bucket tear that required surgery to trim so it wouldn't keep catching and re-tearing. I am not one to undergo surgery unless it is unavoidable, and even after a "simple" scope operation, it took me a full year to get full extension back on that knee, and I doubt I will ever be able to squat again. I run a cleaning business. A couple of months ago an employee had forgotten to return equipment to my van, and I had to mop some hardwood flooring for a client on my hands and knees. That simple ten-minute job put me back out of commission. The kneeling pre-injured the area, and when I stepped back onto my good leg two days later, I felt that familiar burn of a fresh meniscus tear. I was heartsick, dreading another surgery and the attendant expense, pain, and down time. I know from my previous experience that cartilage is hard to heal because of the poor blood supply, especially to the center. I knew it was just a matter of time before I tore it further. (My dad had multiple knee scopes before finally getting a replacement, but I was not going down that path if I could help it!) I got online and researched alternatives that would get me back on my feet. Delighted to discover Mend Me Shop and their professional athletic healing devices, I ordered the Inferno Wrap and Ice Wrap. $400 would be a pittance relative to the $13,000 it costs to repair a torn meniscus (and that doesn't include rehab and lost income). During the week it took the package to arrive, I stayed off my feet as much as possible and iced the injured knee several times a day. My big hope was simply to avoid tearing the cartilage further before the stuff came. (With my surgery knee, I had re-torn it repeatedly before surgery.) The minute that I put that Inferno wrap around my bad knee, I was in love! The penetrating warmth felt amazing. I kept it by my desk and strapped it on when I would sit and work at the computer. And I kept icing the knee. Within a couple weeks I was walking evenly on both legs, if gingerly lest I inadvertently twist or bounce. But I was definitely healing. I didn't miss any work after the first week, though I moved more slowly than usual and occasionally felt that piercing reminder of the tear. I had to lie down and elevate my knee every two hours to get through the day, but it was slowly healing. Four weeks later I was feeling so good, and the day was so sunny, that I went skipping off the front porch and was reminded I have a torn meniscus! And so it goes to this day, some six weeks later: the injury is there, but it is gradually improving. The more I use the therapy devices, the faster it improves. The more I get lazy and feel perfect and neglect them, the more I slow down. But I work a full schedule without breaks and only occasionally am reminded of the injury. By God's grace and with many thanks to Mend Me Shop, I have avoided surgery! Gratefully yours, Debbie Morgan

Ice vs Heat for Treating Muscle Pain

What's Better to Treat Your Muscle Pain - Ice or Heat?

How to Use Superior Temperature Treatments to
Heal & Relieve Pain from Your Pulled / Torn Muscle!

 


Use ice and heat to deal with your strained muscle.

When dealing with muscle pain it's hard to know what treatment will work best for you. You might be wondering if ice and heat will work for you. Or maybe even which will work better - ice OR heat.

Icing and heating are 2 of the most natural treatment options available. Compared to medications, surgery and other treatment methods - icing and heating have been around for centuries and have always been used for muscle injury healing as a means to soothe and heal.

We understand that it can get pretty confusing to figure out what conservative treatment method will work best with all of the treatment options available to you today. To get started, you should think about the benefits you'll get from using these therapies.


Ice and heat are the best treatment combination for you if:

What's better for your muscle injury? Ice or heat?
  • You're looking to heal quickly and want to boost the natural power of pain relief and healing in your body.
  • You don't want to repeatedly pay the cost (both from your wallet and time needed for long-term healing) of injections, medications, hospital visits or surgery.
  • You want to prevent any future injury, pain, sprain, strain, pull, spasm or tear to your muscle.
  • You want to control your own treatment and healing at home, on your own time.
  • You're looking for a tried, tested, and true method of healing that's been used for centuries and has worked for countless other muscle pain sufferers.

how infrared EM energy stimulates healing

Combining cold and warmth is a simple yet effective way to get immediate pain relief and promote long-term healing. In your lifetime you've probably had your mom, family doctor, nurse, surgeon or physical therapist tell you to use ice right after you're injured and something warm from time to time once the swelling's gone down. It's a simple yet very effective way to relieve pain and promote healing in your injured, sprained, strained, torn, pulled or spasming muscle.

Muscle injuries can happen to anyone, and right now there are thousands of doctors and physical therapists dealing with patients that require a solution to treat their strained / pulled muscle fast and heal it (where possible).

If you want to be proactive about properly dealing with your muscle pain, speak to your doctor about adding conservative temperature treatments to your recovery with AidMyMuscle's system using a Cold Compression ColdCure Wrap® and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy with a BFST Wrap®.


The AidMyMuscle at-home temperature therapy healing system gives you:

  • Products that are approved by the FDA for use in the hospital or at home.
  • Boost healing efforts with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy for increased circulation.
  • Cold compression ColdCure 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.
  • BFST Wraps® with deeply penetrating Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy right into your deep muscle tissue where you need treatment most (unlike other methods that just heat your skin - like hot water bottles, hot baths, etc.)
  • Medical-grade, soft, plush, neoprene wraps that meet ISO 10993 biocompatibility testing - providing the safest product for cold compression and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy treatment.
  • A Treatment Formula used by physical therapists and doctors - with a BFST Wrap® used to increase blood flow circulation before activity and a ColdCure Wrap® used to relieve pain / swelling after activity.


These are tools will help you achieve long-term healing results
and prevent re-injury to your muscle.

Which is Better for Treating Muscle Pain:
Ice or Heat?


Is heat better for treating a torn muscle?

People get confused with how ice and heat work to relieve pain and heal. They also get confused with which temperature treatment is better for their injury and how to get the right amount of "ice" or "heat" for effective treatment.

When it comes to using ice and heat for treatment of muscle pain, it's important to keep in mind that both ice AND heat are very effective ways to relieve pain and heal. Most people will think one is better over the other from their own experience or what a doctor / physical therapist has previously told them.

The only difference between using ice and heat is that 1 is better for you at a specific time in your healing cycle. Ice is used first, right when you get your injury, to decrease pain / swelling and inflammation. Heat comes later, to increase blood flow circulation and stimulate the body's healing response.

Is ice better for treating muscle pain?

So which is better?

They'll ultimately work for you in the same way. Each temperature has its own unique benefits for muscle injury healing, and when used togther they provide a powerful advantage to long-term healing. You may already know that ice or heat feels better on your body, and this could influence your decision too.

The bottom line is that ice and heat are exceptional, natural, pain relievers and healers for your muscle injury.

There are cases where some muscle injuries will respond better to 1 temperature over the other. We want to help clear up the confusion so you know which is better (icy cold or gentle heat) and how to get the most from your treatment at home.





How Do You Use Ice / Cold for
Muscle Pain Relief?


Cold should be used for new injuries or right after re-injury.

COLD (ice) is used to treat injuries or conditions that are red, hot, inflamed, swollen and suffering from tissue damage (a tear or recovering from surgery). Cold therapy is a natural / organic pain reliever that numbs pain right at the source of your injury. While doing this the cold also stops cellular break-down and reduces the amount of scar tissue forming (this is very important after surgery).


Cold can Make Muscle Spasms & Stiffness / Tightness Worse - How?

Applying cold can restrict blood flow and stiffen / tighten soft tissue. Cold is NOT a good treatment method for muscle spasms or tightness or stiffness in your muscles, ligaments, tendons or other soft tissue, because the cold will just stiffen the tissue further. Instead use a therapy that will increase blood flow, like Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®), to relieve muscle spasms and overall stiffness.

 


When Should You Use Cold to Treat Your Muscle Pain?

Cold compression works best to relieve pain, swelling and inflammation for new injuries, re-injury and during immediate post surgery recovery. Cold therapy should also be used during the first 24 - 72 hours of treatment, combined with resting your injury.

Cold should be used for new injuries or right after re-injury.

If you've been suffering for some time to time with a chronic injury or condition you should only use cold after activity causes you more pain or triggers more inflammatory symptons (red, hot, inflamed, swollen). When used at this time cold compression becomes a natural / organic pain reliever, treating the site where you feel the pain.

Sometimes we feel pain while doing a certain activity - should you still use cold? Too much cold therapy can reduce your ability to heal correctly, because cold is a short term pain reliever not a deep tissue healer.

We put milk in the fridge so it will stay fresh longer. We do this so it will stay in the same condition as when we bought it. Your injury is no different. Too much cold will keep your injury in the same state - slowing down the healing process. This can sometimes make chronic injuries linger even longer. Heat (Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy) should be used when you suffer from chronic, tight or stiff muscle injuries and after you reduce swelling, pain and inflammation with cold.

Here are a couple of examples for when to use cold (ice):

Get consistent cold compression with one of our Freezie Wraps.
  • You have a strained hamstring injury that's been on-going for quite some time. You're having a "good day" (your injury is feeling fine) and decide to head out for some grocery shopping. You realize afterwards that was a bad idea because your leg / hamstring is even more painful than the day before. You should use COLD on your hamstring to stop further damage to your muscle and help ease the pain.

  • You have a painful case of a pulled calf muscle. You're in the kitchen making a cup of tea and reach in your cupboard to get a mug. You forgot about your injury because it's no longer hurting, but opps... Reaching for that mug just reminded you about your pulled calf muscle injury with a sharp pain / twinge. You stop and ask someone else to retrieve the mug for you or you decide to grab a step-stool (you stopped the activity that will cause more inflammation). The pain is gone which means NO cold compression is needed. In this case heat (Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy) should be used to encourage healing of your calf muscle instead.

It's crucial to use cold after any sort of activity causes you on-going pain.

 

When is Ice too Cold?
When are Blue Gel Packs not Cold Enough?

using cold for pain relief

Ice is frozen water. That might sound like a silly statement - but water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit and becomes a solid. Using ice straight out of your freezer may drop the ice to a chilling 10.4 degrees Fahrenheit. If you put something that cold on your skin (below freezing) the extreme icy cold will start to damage your cells and may burn your skin (this is something called 'cryoburn').

Ice is also a solid, making the surface hard and rigid. When you're in pain, placing a rock hard block of ice onto a painful area causes a totally uncomfortable feeling. Sometimes you'll have to hold your body in weird angles in order to get the ice to balance on your injury in the exact right place where you need the cold most.

Ice is freezing cold when it hits your skin, this is too cold for effective cold compression therapy.

Traditional blue gel packs contain dyes and anti-freeze (a very harsh toxic chemical). With so many chemicals it's impossible for these packs to freeze at all. They only cool down a little instead of getting to cold enough temperatures for effective treatment. Without the ability to freeze how is the temperature going to provide you with the cold your need to help you? After you pull it out of the freezer is it going to actually stay cold as long as you need it? Is it safe? Liquid gel will pool away from your injury in the bottom of the bag - not providing you with cold coverage where you need it most.

using cold for pain relief

The problem is, up until now there hasn't been another option to treat painful conditions and injuries, so ice and traditional ice packs have been the only choice. 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, and numb your skin and underlying tissue beyond feeling so you don't even notice the ice burn until it's too late.

We've designed a cold compression wrap that gets you the cold you need, holding the cold in place over your injury and reaching cold enough temperatures for effective treatment without running the risk of burning your skin (cryoburn).


What Makes the ColdCure Wrap® Different?
Get consistent cold compression with one of our Freezie Wraps.

This is where the ColdCure Wrap® stands apart. Our gel packs are made with a food-grade PVC shell, food-grade non-toxic gel, there are no dyes or chemicals and they're FDA approved medical devices.

The coolest part about the ColdCure Wrap® is the patented gel formulation that allows millions of tiny snowflakes to form inside the gel when chilled. This network of cold snowflakes in the gel gives you 3 times more cold therapy than any other traditional blue gel pack available on the market today.

Each ColdCure Wrap® comes with 3 very large packs of gel that weigh about 1.5 lbs each to fit inside the soft neoprene shell. That's truly stunning when compared to most other wraps on the market that weigh in at only about 1lb or less... including the wrap!


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

 

Get consistent cold compression with one of our Freezie Wraps.

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 muscle, you also limit the amount of healing that needs to occur. This is a very important step to heal muscle injuries faster and with less pain!


Cold Compression Therapy = the ColdCure 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 ColdCure Wrap® can get the swelling & inflammation in your muscle under control! After you get rid of the swelling for good you can start dealing with your muscle injury and pain head on.


Use a Cold Compression ColdCure Wrap®:

  • 24 to 72 hours after your initial muscle 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.

How Do You Use Heat / Warm Temperatures for Strained / Pulled / Torn Muscle Healing?


Cold should be used for new injuries or right after re-injury.

HEAT (warmth) is used after you've reduced your swelling / inflammation and the sharp pain is less intense (you have more of a dull / nagging ache and muscle stiffness / tightness). Warming up your tissue is a natural way to encourage healing of your deep tissue. Increasing the temperature of your deep tissue will result in increased blood flow circulation. It's the blood in your body that will bring oxygen, nutrients, antibodies and energy to your injured tissue to help with healing.


Heat can Make Inflammation, Swelling and Newer Injuries Worse - How?

When we injure ourselves, we start healing right away. The body will naturally raise the temperature at the site of the injury resulting in the inflammatory response (redness, heat sensation, inflammation and swelling). This 'fake fever' leaks blood flow to the area to cool it down and start the healing process.

Adding 'heat' to your injury when it's already inflamed and tender may make your body think there's a new threat to your tissue and increase the pain in order to get you to stop. For some people applying heat on inflamed / swollen tissue will cause the injury to swell-up even more (as much as 3 times larger than normal). You'll feel even more pain as the pressure builds on top of your injury.

Heat is NOT a good treatment method for inflamed muscle injuries, new injuries (within the first 24 to 72 hours), right after surgery or right after a re-injury. In these cases, heat should be applied later on in the healing cycle. In the meantime, cold compression with a ColdCure Wrap® should be used to decrease any swelling and inflammation induced pain.

 

When Should You Use Heat to Heal Your Muscle Injury?

Heat / warming temperature treatment works best to increase blood flow circulation and stimulate healing for older (chronic) injuries, re-injury (after swelling has been reduced) and during long-term post surgery recovery. Warmer temperatures should be used approximately 3 to 5 days after you first have the injury. Heat should not be started for a least 2 weeks after surgery because inflammation levels will be very high as the healing process starts over again. Any use of heat should also be combined with gradual movement to stretch out your muscle and increase range of motion.

If you have a chronic muscle injury that keeps getting re-injured you should use heat before activity to loosen up your muscle (making it more flexible). When used at this time the warm temperatures naturally extend the elasticity (elastic-nature) of your muscle tissue, making it more movable / pliable for activity.

Sometimes we feel pain while doing a certain activity - should you still use heat? Using heat in the morning before you start your day or before activity can help to boost the healing process and reduce your risk of re-injury. Too much heat (especially when you suffer a set-back with swelling / inflammation) can make your inflammation worse. Cold compression with a ColdCure Wrap® should be used when you suffer from on-going pain and inflammation as a natural pain-reliever.

Using heat is a good long-term plan because it will help to stimulate healing and can also be used on a preventive basis to strengthen weak muscle tissue. We use warm temperatures / heat to speed up the process of baking something in the oven or melting the snow outside, your injury is no different. Heat will speed up the natural healing rate in your body by increasing your blood flow circulation. This in turn brings all the components your tissue needs to heal - oxygen, nutrients, anti-bodies and energy.

Here are a couple of examples for when to use warm temperatures (heat):

Get Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy with an Inferno Wrap.
  • You suffered from a tear in your deltoid (shoulder) muscle a few months ago, but since then the injury has healed a little and you no longer feel pain everyday. You started playing in a new ball hockey league and notice your shoulder feels stiff the day after your practices and games. There's no pain, inflammation or swelling, just stiffness / soreness. You should use HEAT (Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy) on your shoulder before your ball hockey practices and games to loosen up your shoulder. Heat can be used again the next day (right when you wake up and again at night before bed) if you notice any residual stiffness.

  • You occasionally feel sharp pains in your inner thigh (groin) that shoot down from your hip. You're not sure if you have an injury, but this pain seems to come and go only when you do a lot of walking, exercising or any twisting / pivoting on your leg. When you feel the sharp pain, the pain will continue to radiate in your groin for a few hours after and your muscle feels weak. The sharp / throbbing pain lingers which means NO heat is needed. In this case cold compression with a ColdCure Wrap® should be used as a natural pain-reliever in your groin. The cold compression will also decrease the amount of damage being done to your muscle tissue.

Keep using Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy before activity and when you notice muscle stiffness to 'warm up' your tissue and stimulate healing.

 

When is Heat too Hot?
When are Other Heating methods not Hot Enough?
Hot water bottles are awkward to use and don't penetrate the heat deep enough for effective treatment.

Hot water bottles, hot baths / showers and other heating methods have been used to soothe sore joints and soft tissue forever. The problem with using traditional heating devices is that the low-level energy gets too hot for our skin but not hot enough for our deep muscle tissue.

Your skin is like your armor - it's a protective shield. This means the heat energy needs to pass through your protective shield to reach deep enough into the tissue to promote blood flow for healing. Turning up the heat with hot water bottles, hot baths or other heating methods that heat up the skin first means we're trying to push the energy inside by force. It's just like when you use your oven to bake a cake for 45 minutes. The heat energy starts cooking the cake on the outside to work it's way in. You have to stick a toothepick in the cake to know when the inside's done.

Applying therapy that heats your skin first will make your skin feel too hot before the heat even penetrates deep into your muscle tissue.

Using heat when the energy is only pushing into the top layers of the skin won't give you deep tissue healing. In this case, the blood is actually rushing AWAY from the injury site to the surface of your skin. This makes you really FEEL the heat.

If you feel the heat is the therapy really helping you on deep muscle tissue level? NO, feeling the heat means it's only warming your outter layers of skin - much like baking a cake. There's even a condition for overuse of a skin-level heat source called toasted skin syndrome, hot water bottle rash, fire stains, laptop thigh, or granny's tartan (reference: 1).


What Makes the Inferno Wrap® Different?

This is where BFST Wraps® are wholesome healers!

Instead of having the heat energy force itself into your body by heating up the skin first, the BFST Wraps® emit an electromagnetic energy that penetrates deep into your tissue creating the heat right down in your muscle. This means that instead using an oven to cook a cake from the outside in, you're using another method to cook the cake evenly from the inside out. After the timer's up you know your cake is fully-cooked without having to use a toothepick to check!

Increase your blood flow circulation with our BFST Inferno Wraps.

What exactly has changed the way heat therapy works? With modern medical advancements electromagnetic energy is used to generate deep tissue heat for healing with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®).

The only way to get BFST® is through use of an Inferno Wrap®. The Inferno Wrap® is the only treatment method available for use at home that improves blood flow and circulation on a deep tissue level. As we mentioned before, other methods (like 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 deep tissue. 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 your injury, increasing the blood flow right in your muscle tissue.

With regular use of the Inferno Wrap®:

  • Your pain will be reduced.
  • Your damaged tissue will heal at an accelerated rate while reducing your risk of re-injury.
  • Your injury will have a larger range of motion and increased extensibility of collagen tissue. (Chapter 9 of "Therapeutic Heat and Cold", 4th edition. (amazon.com link) Ed. Justus F. Lehmann, M.D., Williams, and Wilkin)

Our BFST Wraps® are 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 - biocompatibility 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 muscle & prevent re-injury.
  • Before and after surgery during rehabilitation to warm up your tissues before physical therapy exercising or stretching.
  • Anytime you feel your muscles 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 muscle, relieve pain / spasms, prevent re-injury and enhance flexibility of your tissue.

A Summary of How Ice & Heat Affect Your Blood Flow


Imagine you're standing in your living room at home. When the air in that room is at normal room temperature (ambient temperature), your body is in a comfortable state. Your heart rate and blood pressure are normal (or whatever 'normal' is for you').



Imagine the air has cooled down to freezing...

Applying cold constricts your blood vessels decreasing fluid retention and swelling in muscles.

When the room becomes cooler your heart rate begins to slow down and your blood pressure increases. Your body does this automatically to retain heat in your body. At this time your muscles will also start to squeeze on and contract all of the veins in your body carrying blood flow. This also helps to decrease the amount of blood flowing throughout your circulatory system and retains the heat.

When cold is applied to a muscle injury, the muscle squeezes on the veins to slow down your blood flow. This in turn clamps down on the amount of fluid leaking into your injured tissue, decreasing your swelling. This is why cold is used immediately to treat newer muscle injuries or re-injuries. The cold slows down your body to stop the amount of damage happening to your tissue and decrease your swelling. This cold also has a nice side benefit of numbing the nerves in and around the injured area thereby decreasing your pain.

In the medical world this is something called 'Vasoconstriction'.



Imagine the air has warmed up enough that you start sweating...

Applying heat expands your blood vessels increasing blood flow to muscle injuries.

When the room becomes warmer your heart rate speeds up and your blood pressure decreases. Your body is trying to increase your blood flow to cool down your body.

When heat is applied to a muscle injury, your veins will start to get bigger (expand) to allow more blood flow through your muscles. This in turn relaxes your muscle, making the tissue more flexible and elastic. This is why heat is used on older (chronic) injuries and muscle spasms / cramps, to loosen tissue and bring in the blood flow needed for healing. Your body will begin to heal itself after its' injured. Increasing your blood flow with heat will actually speed up this natural process.

Doctors usually call this process 'Vasodilation'.



Some other things happen when you're hot and cold...

When you're cold you'll start to shiver and your fingers, nose and/or toes will get coldest first. This agian, is your body trying to retain the heat so all major organs can still function. When you're hot you'll start to sweat. Sweating is the body's natural way of cooling itself down.


Knowing when to use hot and cold and which is better for your blood flow is easy when you remember how your body reacts to cold weather vs hot weather. Both temperatures are helpful for natural muscle injury healing when used at the right time in the healing cycle.



How to Use Consistent Deep Muscle Stretching for Improved Muscle Strength & Health


Stretch your muscles to boost healing.

For many people, the treatment won't just end there. Stretching is also an important part of of deep muscle healing - and it's the final step needed when healing your muscle injury with conservative treatment methods.

You would be suprised by how many people there are that don't understand the importance of stretching a deep tissue muscle injury. Before returning to full activity after a muscle injury, physical therapists prescribe gentle stretching of the affected muscle group... This is because stretching is the secret of healing any muscle injury. Consistent stretching is one of the only solutions available to break up scar tissue that forms on your muscle as it heals.

Stretching with use of a ColdCure Wrap® and Inferno Wrap® is even better!



Stretching your Muscle with a Knee-Flex® is
even more powerful when combined with:

  • A Deep Tissue Therapeutic Inferno Wrap® to increase elasticity of tissue and stimulate blood flow in the injured muscle before stretching.
  • A Professional Cold Compression ColdCure Wrap® to reduce pain and inflammation in the affected muscle after stretching.
 

There is a Unique Formula used for Recovery from Muscle Pain...

We're going to let you in on a key piece of information... In every physical therapy appointment your physical therapist will use conservative treatments, massage, manual manipulation and/or stretching exercises to give you this Professional 3-Step Treatment Formula:


Step 1 - Warm Up Your Muscle

Physical therapists will warm up your muscle by performing deep tissue massage.

For this 1st step many physical therapists will use heat, manual manipulation, deep tissue massage, clinical ultrasound devices or a warm bath to warm up your muscle. The goal during this first step is to increase healthy blood flow circulation and relax your affected muscle.

'Warming up' your muscle will increase the elastic-nature of your muscle fibers making it much easier to stretch and when needed, hold the stretch. This will also extend the amount that you will be able to stretch your muscle.


Increase Your Blood Flow Circulation at Home

The Perfect BFST Leg Wrap

Use a BFST Wrap® for 15 to 20 minutes at least half an hour before stretching your muscle. A BFST Wrap® will promote Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) - a therapy that will increase the blood flow to your muscle while warming up and relaxing your injured tissue. BFST® will make your muscle fibers more elastic and pliable, allowing for more ease of movement when you're stretching and/or exercising.

Continued treatment with BFST® will also deliver much-needed oxygen, nutrients, antibodies and energy to your muscle. This will boost your own natural healing ability and speed up your time for recovery.


Step 2 - Stretch Your Muscle

After your muscle is warmed up your physical therapist will guide you through stretches to improve mobility.

The main goal of physical therapy is to exercise (stretch out) the affected muscle to improve flexibility and range of motion. After the physical therapist has warmed up your muscle, they'll get you to do a series of exercises that are focused on stretching out your muscle.

This exercise may include heel slides that are focused on moving your quadriceps, groin, hip, hamstring, calf and shin.

Sometimes cardiovascular exercise, like using a stationary bike or treadmill, will be recommended under the supervision of your physical therapist.


Improve Your Muscle's Range of Motion at Home

The Knee-Flex® can be used to perform consistent stretching that's beneficial to all of the muscle groups in your leg. Start off with 10 repititions of the Knee-Flex® stretch at least once everyday. Increase your repititions as the movement becomes more fluid and natural for you.

Amazing Muscle Stretching with Knee-Flex

You can easily modify these stretches to further work out specific muscle groups in your leg by turning your foot in toward your other leg (point your toe in) when sliding your leg out away from your body, then turning your foot out away from your body (point your toe out to the side) when sliding your leg in toward your hips/lower back.

Another subtle change to this movement is pointing your toe forward when sliding your heel out, away from your body. You can then flex your foot up (pointing your toe to the ceiling) when flexing your knee and bringing your heel back toward your body.

These small changes in movement will boost the amount of work all of the muscles in your legs are doing while using the Knee-Flex®.

Why are muscle injuries so hard to over come? In two words - scar tissue.

Muscle tissue is meant to be soft and flexiable, ready to work and move extreme forces in everyday activities. Damaged muscles heal with scar tissue; little tiny band-aids that overlap each other on the tissue mending the injury. With the added scar tissue the muscle becomes rigid, less ready to move and unable to recieve the full force of your movements. If you're suffering with scar tissue now you may feel the effects with stiffness, tightness, weakness and tiredness in your muscles.

Scar tissue builds on the muscle as the tears heal. The build up causes pain and inflexibility making your muscle more prone to further injury.

Scar tissue can form fast to bring together the edges of a muscle tear, but working fast doesn't mean that the job's done right. When scar tissue forms it doesn't come together as neatly as regular (healthy) tissue would. Scar tissue fibers will lay down over top of your tear in a cluttered, messy and jumbled up way.

Imagine throwing a bunch of drinking straws in the air... When those straws hit the ground they'll land in a random, unorganized way. It even seems silly to think that those straws could land perfectly straight and all in the same direction.

Stretching helps to organize the scar tissue, increasing the strength of this tissue so it's more like the weave of a basket.


Step 3 - Cool Down Your Muscle

Toward the end of your appointment your physical therapist may introduce cold compression, acupuncture, or TENS to relax your muscle after the intense stretching and exercise.


Relieve Your Muscle Pain & Swelling at Home

Sprained Muscle Cold Compression Treatment

Use a ColdCure Wrap® after using your Knee-Flex®, stretching / exercising your muscle, or whenever you feel deep tissue muscle pain. The ColdCure Wrap® will relieve any on-going pain and swelling while preventing full-blown inflammation from returning after your stretching.

Start with a 20 minute treatment directly after activity and apply more cold compression whenever you need to relieve pain and inflammation in your muscle.

Each ColdCure Wrap® has non-migrating RigiGel® that keeps the cold over your muscle where it's needed most. With 3 extra large gel packs you also have the ability to swap out gel packs to extend your post-stretch cool down however long you need it.



Our Muscle Therapy Formula is Proven to Work!


It may seem hard to believe, but our ColdCure Wraps®, BFST Wraps® and KB Medical Support Tape® home therapy products will assist you in recovering from your injury by reducing your swelling and inflammation induced pain, maximizing blood flow where it's needed most and increasing the flexibility / range of motion of your muscle with consistent stretching.

Muscle Injury Facts:

There are approximately 639 muscles in the human body


Muscle aches and pains are common and can involve more than one muscle


Muscle pain also can involve ligaments, tendons, and fascia, the soft tissues that connect muscles, bones, and organs


Oral medications can mask the pain but do not aid in the healing of a muscle injury. Anti-inflammatories and pain killers can cause muscle related injuries to worsen


Muscle pain also can be a sign of conditions affecting your whole body, like some infections and disorders that affect connective tissues throughout the body


Most common cause of muscle aches & pains:

  • Injury or trauma including sprains and strains
  • Overuse: using a muscle too much, too soon, too often
  • Tension or stress

Dear MendMeShop,

Things are going well with my healing sessions. I had it three times daily with each session lasting 20 minutes maximum for two weeks. I noticed reduction of pain in my third day using the Inferno Wrap. In my Second week I reduced the sessions to just one (20 Minute) per day. The pain is almost gone except when I make a wrong and abrupt move on or of my right (problematic) shoulder. Hopefully, I do not have to use the Freeze Wrap this summer when I do most of my heavy yard work, but I am assured that there is this cold treatment if in case I hurt my shoulder again. I now have decided not to have an MRI on my shoulder and undergo more expensive treatments or therapy from my specialist ortho doctor . I think his diagnosis of "Frozen shoulder" or possible rotator cup tear are correct. I will be watching my progress and if condition gets worse, I will call him again for appointment. But for the mean time, I am satisfied with my Inferno Wrap treatment on myself. I am glad to have save time and money at least for now. Thanks again for your wonderful products and support. Warm Regards to your Team. P.S. In a follow up email Jesse sent us later in the year, Jesse indicated the Inferno wrap did wonders... it's been almost nine months ago since I purchased your products. I am happy to let you know as today that my frozen shoulder is no longer an issue. I believed in less than a month of continuous therapy sessions per your instructions on the product my pain is gone.

Dear MendMeShop,

Just had to share my story. My son who was 17 years old at the time he's now 18, was complaining of pain in both his knees. We took him to the Dr who told us he had torn cartilage in both knees and would need arthroscopic surgery on both knees to take out the torn cartilage. At this young age I did not want him to loose what cartilage he had as it leads to other problems when you get older. The orthopedic surgeon wanted to do surgery right away before more damage was done. He had surgery on his left knee and they took out 35% of his cartilage. I went to the internet for help ,hoping there was a better way to solve his problem in his other knee. That's when I found the Mend me shop. I showed the articles to his Surgeon and told him I wanted to try it before he had more surgery done. He said it was probably just another internet scam but I went ahead and ordered it anyway sine they have a 60 day return policy. What did we have to lose, nothing. To my surprise the inferno wrap took most of my son's pain, clicking and soreness away. His knee feels like new again and he's back to paying basketball. I have never responded to any product before but I feel strongly about these products, they really do work, I wish I had saved him from having surgery on his other knee. So if you are having the same issues give these products a try you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!!!!!!

Dear MendMeShop,

My ankle wraps (Inferno and Freezie) have done me good. I used to have pain so intense that I could not sleep. I still work and when I come home from work, I would be in such pain that I could not find a way to get comfortable or relax. I use my freeze wrap for fifteen minutes and my inferno wrap for another fifteen minutes and I can relax the rest of the night. I have also been getting a full night of sleep and wake up pain free. I shall continue to use the ankle wraps along with my (medication) and my stretching exercises, I'll be able to go on working until my retirement in three years. Thank you so much for making this product available to Achilles pain sufferers.

Dear MendMeShop,

Last spring, I aggravated an old injury in my right knee and was in pain. My brother-in-law had mentioned he recovered from knee inflammation using the Knee Inferno wrap. He loaned me his to use and I was pain-free within six weeks. I apparently stressed the knee again recently. I decided to order my own Knee Inferno wrap this time so that I would be prepared in the years to come. I am experiencing relief already and I am very grateful! Thank you, Dana Jagoda

Dear MendMeShop,

I suffered a repeat motion injury to my wrist at work about 2 months ago. I did a lot of research online and self diagnosed myself with intersection syndrome, a condition of the tendons that run from the back of the thumb, under the muscles in the back of the wrist, and up the back of the forearm. I was reinjuring or irritating it every day with the simplest of tasks. I could barely use that hand at all, and the swelling was severe. I found your website and after reading the positive results I decided to order your wraps although very skeptical. I alternated the hot and cold wraps and I haven't had a problem with the wrist since. I do a lot of awkward and heavy lifting at work, and have not felt the slightest irritation. 3 times in 4 days and GONE! I still can't believe it. I am forever grateful for finding you.

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,

At the end of the 2009 school year, (I'm a teacher) I developed plantar fasciitis in my right foot. I remember literally being in agony the last day of school and calling my orthopedic surgeon for an emergency appointment. He saw me, prescribed ice, supportive shoes, and offered to give me a shot of corticosteroid. He informed me that the shot might help but it also might make it worse! Needless to say, with that comment, I passed on the shot. I was really having a hard time with the pain. I began to search on the internet to find out all I could about plantar facsciitis and possible regimens to follow to aleviate my problem.. One site led to another and I finally found MendMeShop. MendMeShop offered a foot wrap that sounded like the perfect way to ice my foot. The plantar Freezie gel pack didn't freeze solid and the wrap molded perfectly to my foot. It certainly beat a tub full of hard ice! The condition is now gone from my right foot. I routinely exercise fairly vigorously including jogging on the treadmill. I would never have been able to do that last summer!

Dear MendMeShop,

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

Dear MendMeShop,

When I use the knee Inferno wrap consistently it makes a difference. I need a knee replacement but because of my weight issues I can't get the surgery. The wrap gives me much relief. I also tore my rotator cuff and had major reconstructive surgery and 1 year of rehab. Over the years I have stiffness and the shoulder wrap has helped to maintain range of motion. In addition, I have the tortoise shell for the back and I can't say enough. It hits the whole back up to the neck. Wonderful. My sister has planter fasciitis she used the foot wrap consistently for several months, now she only needs to use periodically. I love and use all the products I have purchased and would recommend.

I've been a long time customer. Two of our daughters dance and your products have helped a variety of ailments. Our daughter's Achilles tendonitis took a few months, but no longer hurts!!! You have super products that really work! As a follow up not long after Kathy's first comments (based on her most recent purchase of the Wrist Inferno and Freezie) Pain is down about 90% so far!!! Thanks for thinking of us. You have a great system of customer service and products! KL

Dear MendMeShop,

I just wanted to let you know that your Inferno and Freezie products worked very well for my elbow problem. It did take more time than the initial warranty so I appreciate your company extending this time period. Your communication via email and telephone, explaining the correct procedure for the use of your products, were key. This allowed me to see that I was not using them exactly as I should and it made a big difference. I used them to the letter and today my elbow pain is gone - completely. I was ready to go to a surgeon so this was a much better alternative. Continue the good work!

Dear MendMeShop,

I am always amazed by companies who still deliver true customer service to their clients, it blows me away. Me and my husband both have knee issues and would like to purchase additional knee wraps in the future as they truly make a difference after using them. I have recommended your website to my physical therapist for his other patients as he saw a substantial difference in my mobility and decreased usage of pain killers. Thanks again for your superior customer service and attention to detail and follow through. It is sad to say, but in this day and age those are rare qualities to find in a company. Make it a great day! Warm Regards, A.M.
