Dear MendMeShop,

I ordered this wrap after finding out I have a Calcium deposit in my shoulder which has turned to Tendinitis. The Freezie wrap is awesome and instantly takes the pain away. The only thing negative I can say is if you are right at a 40 size chest order the SM/LG (under 40'). I am in the process of exchanging sizes because I ordered the LG/XL (40'-48') and the wrap is bulky and very big. I am right on the cute off for 40' and went bigger when I first ordered and should have ordered the small.

Dear MendMeShop,

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

More 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 have been using the inferno and freezie on my knee (torn meniscus) for several weeks now and have been very happy with the results. Less pain and less inflammation. I have been using the inferno before a work out and up to 3 times a day. I use the freezie after my work out or if I feel my knee is inflamed. I am very pleased that I found your advertisement on my facebook page. I have tell everyone about this product and I can't imagine how my knee will feel in another month. I also use it on my other knee for arthritis. It seems to help. Thanks again and I will continue to endorse your product. Because I believe it works. I showed my physical therapist your product and he was impressed. Yours truly Jacenta Friesen

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,

I'm regularly using both Leg and Plantar Inferno Wraps now and I'm already seeing extreme/good results. Basically I'm doing lots of running now and enjoy competing 5k's & 10k's. Hopefully full marathon soon and to achieve better results I need to train hard; consequences [of this] are typical running injuries. Obviously I'm treating my Plantar Fascia [with the Plantar Inferno Wrap], and using the Leg Inferno Wrap I'm treating my calf and hamstring. Both Inferno Wraps I should say are user friendly / easy to use except you need to be near electrical outlet to operate this gadget. I should say this equipment is a big help to the runners world.

Dear MendMeShop,

After more than a year of pain in my left arm I was at my wit's end! I was tired of taking pain pills every time I exerted myself. My doctor had prescribed anti-inflammatory drugs and a brace for my elbow, but after a year, and numerous visits to the doctor, it kept getting worse. Then my wife found the Inferno Wrap. I was leery and I told her so. She said - well it will cost you $150.00 to visit the doctor again and it hasn't helped yet, so why not give it a try?" She ordered it and the first couple of times I used it my elbow hurt a bit more than before, but after a week, I began to see some improvement. By 3 months it was much better, and today it doesn't bother me at all. I recommended it to my doctor on my next visit! Now I tell everyone to get one! My wife and I both use it now (as she recently injured her elbow). Getting old is not fun, but the Inferno Wrap definitely works and definitely helps! I highly recommend it!

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.

He has just emailed to say it is making a great difference already and he is able to bend his knee much further than before. He is delighted as the leg feels stronger too and he will continue to use it while he under goes physio which starts tomorrow. Fingers crossed his recovery will be quicker than expected because he has been able to use your product. We thank you for your excellent product and will keep you updated over the following weeks. Regards Kim Frame P.S. A follow up received from Kim a few months later: The wrap continued to do its good work and my son made a really quick recovery much to the surprise of the medical professional.

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.

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.

Use BFST with an Inferno Wrap to increase blood flow circulation in your muscles.

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 Freezie Wrap® and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy with an Inferno 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 Freezie Wraps® that relieve pain, inflammation and swelling fast with consistent cold temperatures that WON'T reach temperatures so low that it causes cryoburn (like ice or blue gel packs full of anti-freeze and chemicals).
  • Food-grade, non-toxic gel packs that can be chilled in the fridge or freezer.
  • Inferno Wraps® with deeply penetrating Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy right into your deep 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 an Inferno Wrap® used to increase blood flow circulation before activity and a Freezie 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 Freezie Wrap® Different?
Get consistent cold compression with one of our Freezie Wraps.

This is where the Freezie 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 Freezie 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 Freezie 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 Freezie Wrap®

 

It'll seem weird for you to read this, but there are a LOT of people out there that don't understand how fast cold compression with a Freezie Wrap® can get the swelling & inflammation in your 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 Freezie 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.
  • Before and after surgery during rehabilitation to control pre and post-surgery pain and swelling.
  • Anytime you feel your muscle tissue is tender, painful or you're having a flare-up of an old muscle strain injury.
  • Anytime you have swelling, sharp throbbing pain or inflammation in your muscles.
  • Any other situation where you need to draw the pain and inflammation out of your 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 Freezie 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.

Increase blood flow to your hamstring, quadriceps, calf, shins and/or groin with a Leg Inferno Wrap.

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 Freezie 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 Freezie 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 Inferno Wraps® are wholesome healers!

Instead of having the heat energy force itself into your body by heating up the skin first, the Inferno 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 Inferno 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 Freezie 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 Freezie 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 an Inferno Wrap® for 15 to 20 minutes at least half an hour before stretching your muscle. An Inferno 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 cieling) 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 Freezie Wrap® after using your Knee-Flex®, stretching / exercising your muscle, or whenever you feel deep tissue muscle pain. The Freezie 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 Freezie 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 Freezie Wraps®, Inferno Wraps® and Knee-Flex® 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.

It has been just over 2 months since I started using my knee Inferno Wrap for a MCL injury. I have used it as directed and have had great results. I am 80% healed with little pain as I write. I am planning to resume surfing this week after a 3 month layoff. I am 62. I definitely recommend Inferno Wrap as an alternative to surgery. Thanks again, Randy Best P.S.

Dear MendMeShop,

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

Dear MendMeShop,

I'm regularly using both Leg and Plantar Inferno Wraps now and I'm already seeing extreme/good results. Basically I'm doing lots of running now and enjoy competing 5k's & 10k's. Hopefully full marathon soon and to achieve better results I need to train hard; consequences [of this] are typical running injuries. Obviously I'm treating my Plantar Fascia [with the Plantar Inferno Wrap], and using the Leg Inferno Wrap I'm treating my calf and hamstring. Both Inferno Wraps I should say are user friendly / easy to use except you need to be near electrical outlet to operate this gadget. I should say this equipment is a big help to the runners world.

Dear MendMeShop,

I just wanted to send a huge thank you to your company. I suffered a fully torn Achilles and unfortunately the system for retired Army officers is not very good -it was 5 weeks before I was seen by a surgeon. He was furious -- but we had to take the non surgical route. After 12 weeks I was cleared and sent to physical therapy - they were dumbfounded with my progress. I shared your products and gracefully explained I would prefer to trust my health to a process that works rather than continue to gamble with a system that is a crap shoot at best. The Doctor agreed! I love my progress and I work hard each day using the Ankle wrap heat and cold plus the knee flex. Thank you for great products - from a person who DID NOT HAVE SURGERY for a fully ruptured Achilles and the PT is dumbfounded with my progress. I am so far ahead of my surgical repaired contemporaries. This is my first testimonial and it would not occurred -- but when I lost my power connector for my heat ankle wrap it was replaced ASAP with no cost I was floored - thank you for mission impossible!!

Dear MendMeShop,

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

Dear MendMeShop,

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

Dear MendMeShop,

I am more than grateful to have come across the Inferno as I know it is helping in my healing process. I broke my patella in half and healing from surgery (range of motion/pain) has been extremely slow. Sitting, which is required to work was almost impossible and daily more tolerable. The range of motion has increased and I should be able to start driving again the end of the month. I know the Inferno was part of this change in healing, along with my diligent exercises/care. I have a ways to go and confident the Inferno will continue be major contributor.

Dear MendMeShop,

I found the Freezie and Inferno Wraps very effective - my knee is much better now. I was able to discontinue use of the Inferno some weeks ago because of the improvement. However, knees being what they are, I expect that sooner or later I will twist something and have pain. It is just a matter of time before my active lifestyle catches up to me. When it does, I will get out the Cold wrap then switch off to the Inferno again.

Dear MendMeShop,

I would like you to know that after landing on my left knee sharply enough to merit two weeks on crutches 12 weeks ago, I am now 95% better. The knee isn't fully recovered in strength, but it is pain free and able to go up and down stairs normally now and in general work as it should. Deep knee bends aren't a recommended activity just yet, though it is comfortable to do that motion at some times but not at others. In any event, your inferno wrap was part of my recovery process, and I feel a very important one! Between the information on your website and the wrap – and the RICE! - I seem to have healed far better than I originally expected, though it has taken time and patience, and I was cautious so as not to re-injure it! Thank you. Just wanted you to know!
