Dear MendMeShop,

Paul, The things I ordered from you seem to help and I am glad to have them. It has been really hot weather here so I don't use it as often as I should but it has relaxed the shoulder and I have a lot more movement. Thanks for your help, you speak the truth. I am telling others of your products.

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 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!

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,

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 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,

A couple of years ago I helped my husband cut firewood on a hillside. I began to experience pain in my Achilles tendon shortly after we had finished getting all of the firewood cut, split and stacked. I limped through the winter and in the spring began to worry that I wouldn't be able to take care of my gardens. I finally went to the doctor and was prescribed physical therapy. The PT did help with the pain but didn't really "cure" the problem. I continued home physical therapy for another year and began to research therapies to help the tendon. I wanted to avoid surgery if possible. I came across the MendMeShop website and read about the products recommended for Achilles tendon. The cost seemed minimal compared to what I had already spent at the doctor and physical therapist. I ordered the Inferno Wrap and the Freezie Wrap for the ankle and used them according to the directions. I felt great pain relief and the flexibility in my Achilles returned within a few weeks of treatments. I have also been using a night splint following my last Inferno Wrap night treatment before retiring. With that regimen, I have been able to avoid a surgical tendon correction and have been able to resume my normal busy activities. Thank you MendMeShop for your great products and customer service follow-up of the shipment of products.

Dear MendMeShop,

I am most satisfied with the products that I purchased. It is clearly high quality and I am positive it will heal my knee in the long run. I am really looking forward to getting my knee sorted out permanently. I did have a knee operation about two years ago but there were no time to give it a decent recovery time. Unfortunately as a mechanic working on the power plant here in Salerno, we work on gravel surfaces 24/7 for 85 days before returning home for a 3 week vacation. At the age of 53 it becomes real stress full and I also had to put away my running shoes, which was also a blow to me. I am very confident that your products will get me back on the road again and I would love to do the Comrades ultra marathon in South Africa for the third time.

Dear MendMeShop,

It's refreshing to hear your sincere concern for the health benefit of your products to your customers. I'm a repeat customer. I purchased my first elbow inferno wrap about five years ago. I use it all the time, since I play tennis about 4 to 5 times a week. I consider the money well spent for five years of playing lots of tennis. I also have a knee inferno wrap, which I use less often because once my knees healed they hurt only occasionally. Because the pad in the knee wrap is bigger, I can also use it on pain in my lower back, which I sometimes get from pulled muscles. For years I've been recommending your products to tennis playing friends who complain about painful joints, and I'm always surprised how few actually want to invest the money into healing themselves. They'd rather use neoprene sleeves, braces or compression devices, which don't work very well and have no healing effect. I guess they just think it's normal to suffer and stop playing at regular intervals. Thanks for great products.

The Final Step Needed to Treat Muscle Injuries

Stretch your muscles to boost healing.

It's now possible to boost your healing by stretching your muscle injury at home. Stretching is the final step needed when healing your muscle injury (sprain, strain, pull, spasm) with conservative treatment methods.

Your body is capable of healing itself - and natural healing will happen even faster by using consistent conservative treatment with a Therapeutic Cold Compression Freezie Wrap®, Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy Inferno Wrap® and Passive Muscle Stretching / Strengthening with a Knee-Flex®.

Knee-Flex® = a Passive Muscle Stretching Device Used in Hundreds of PT Clinics and Hospitals in Canada

This Same Device is Now Available for Use at Home

Knee - Flex Therapy Usage

This seemingly simple device has helped thousands of patients recover from various deep tissue, muscle injuries. Physical therapists use the Knee-Flex® to help their patients make a fast and full recovery.

The Knee-Flex® Passive Muscle Stretching Device helps with:

  • Post-surgery rehabilitation (ie. arthroscopic or open muscle repair surgery).
  • Recovery from a serious muscle sprain, strain, pull or spasm to the hamstring, quadriceps, calf, shin, thigh, hip and groin.
  • Increasing flexibility after suffering from a pulled hamstring muscle.
  • Stretching out scar tissue from a calf muscle (gastrocnemius) strain (or 'tennis leg').
  • Decreasing stiffness from shin splints and lower leg pain.
  • Getting rid of quadricep (thigh) muscle tightness.

Stretch with a Knee-Flex® to prevent re-injury - regular stretching maintains flexibility of the tissue as it ages.


Doctors and physical therapists recommend stretching to prevent and recover from deep tissue muscle injuries.

For many people, stretching seems like such a basic thing... They wonder how stretching can really help a muscle injury. You would be surprised 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 (and any surrounding muscles that will lend much-needed support to your injured area). They don't prescribe this to annoy you - it's the most important part of muscle recovery. You probably know of someone that chose not to do these stretches as it's common - and they paid a high price for it.

By not listening to the therapist (i.e. not stretching), there is a huge chance of re-injuring your muscle. You might even get injured worse than your original muscle sprain, strain, pull or spasm was.

It may seem hard to believe but it's true - Stretching is the secret of healing any muscle injury. Consistent stretching is one of the only solutions to break up scar tissue that forms on your muscle as it heals.

Stretching with ColdCure Technology® and BFST® is even better!

If you want to be proactive about properly addressing your muscle injury speak to your doctor about adding to your treatment with AidMyMuscle's system utilizing the Knee-Flex®, Inferno Wrap® and Freezie Wrap®.

The AidMyMuscle therapeutic at-home healing system gives you:

Our Knee-Flex Passive Muscle Strething Device will increase flexibility of your healing tissue and help to break up scar tissue that forms on your muscle.
  • Products that are approved by the FDA for use in the hospital or at home.
  • A 3-Step Treatment Formula used by physical therapists and doctors - with an Inferno Wrap® used to increase blood flow circulation before stretching, a Knee-Flex® to stretch out your muscle and a Freezie Wrap® to 'cool down' & relieve post-stretching pain / swelling.
  • 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.)
  • 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.
  • 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.

Stretching = The Best Way to Deal with Scar Tissue

Scar tissue will grow in to protect your injured muscle, but the scar tissue will attach to everything resulting in a hard fusing together of tendon tissue - reducing mobility.

Even when you're injured and in pain you need to keep moving to break up scar tissue that's forming in your muscle. Regular movement can increase healthy range of motion (ROM) of your muscle, resulting in a speedier recovery process and return to regular activities. Moving when you're injured is hard. Since moving while injured can be painful - most people think it's better to stop moving, rest their body and hope that their muscle strain will heal all on its' own. Even though rest is important to recovery too much rest during the recovery process will increase the amount of scar tissue on your muscle.

During the healing process your body will fill in tears in your muscle with dense, brittle tissue called "scar tissue". The human body will use scar tissue as a temporary solution and will try to build the scar tissue as fast as possible to heal a tear. Scar tissue can form fast to bring together the edges of a 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) muscle 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... Those straws will land in a random, unorganized way. It seems silly to think that those straws could land perfectly straight and all in the same direction.

This is how scar tissue works. The scar tissue that forms on your muscle will be unorganized and won't line up properly with the healthy tissue surrounding the tear. This scar tissue will also attach to everything in and around your muscle including the surrounding healthy tissue as well. This can result in a long-term fusing together of your muscle that stiffens up your tissue, reducing your mobility and making your injury even more painful!

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.

This is why scar tissue is weak and only a temporary solution to heal your pulled / strained muscle. Scar tissue is something that needs to be dealt with fast. If you try to get back into your regular daily activities with a mound of scar tissue on your muscle you'll have a higher risk of re-injury. Scar tissue is just not built to withstand the pressures of regular activity.

If you have an injured muscle with a lot of scar tissue and re-injure that tissue, even more scar tissue will grow to fill in those tears. If you keep falling into the dangerous cycle of re-injuring your muscle without proper treatment you could end up with massive amounts of scar tissue. Your ability to move your affected muscle in a normal way will be impaired as the amount of scar tissue increases.

The only solution to truly repair your pulled muscle for good is to break up scar tissue and avoid re-injury.


This can easily be achieved with regular use of the Knee-Flex®. This device provides a sturdy hardwood track with an easy gliding motion giving you the same stretch everytime. Your movement is controlled reducing your risk of re-injury. The result is a consistent stretch that helps to break down your scar tissue and improve flexibility in your muscle.

Use the Knee-Flex® to Bring Your Deep Tissue Muscle Stretching & Rehabilitation
to a Whole New Level!

It's very common for a physical therapist to combine conservative treatments and stretching techniques to help you heal your strained muscle. They'll also probably give you advice to continue specific stretches at home, everyday, to increase your rate of recovery. If no device is available to allow for consistent stretching of your muscle at home the physical therapist will usually prescribe something called "heel slides".

Heel slide movement without a device like the Knee-Flex often results in uncontrolled, inconsistent movement that could lead to further injury of your muscle.

A "heel slide" is a full flex and extension of your lower leg. Heel slides can be performed in a seated or laying down position. To start this movement you first need to slide your heel in toward your body, then you slide it right back out away from your body.

Heel slides (full heel to hip movement) is nothing new... Common stretching practices like Pilates, Yoga and other fitness techniques all encourage heel to hip movement to firm, tone and condition the muscles and soft tissue in your lower leg, thigh and hamstring. This movement is also used to increase alignment of your leg from your heel to your hip and improve your lower body balance. A lot of muscle, tendon and ligament groups are involved in this stretch - like your hip (hip flexors), hamstring muscle, quadriceps muscle, your groin, all of the tendons and ligaments in your knee, your calf muscles, your shins, and your ankles. This is why heel slides are considered to be a foundation stretch for ALL of your leg muscles.

When physical therapists perform heel to hip stretching they'll manually flex and extend your leg for you until you have enough strength to do it on your own.

You'll slowly get the hang of this movement in physical therapy and your therapist will recommend that you continue a set of heel slide stretches several times each day in your own home.

Physical therapists will manually manipulate your leg to perform assisted heel slides while massaging different areas of your leg.

When trying to do this stretch on your own your physical therapist might encourage you to use household tools to assist in your stretch.

They may suggest you use:

  1. a plastic bag,
  2. cookie sheet,
  3. a tension band,
  4. a belt,
  5. or some other tool to help you slide your heel away from your body.
The Knee-Flex provides easy, consistent heel slide stretching and is exclusively offered by

They recommend these tools to help you get consistent stretching and assistance during your stretching routine. The problem with this is that using a plastic bag or cookie sheet during this stretch can be unsafe, with little to no control over your lower leg... Potentially resulting in an even worse injury!

This is where the Knee-Flex® comes in! The Knee-Flex® provides safe, consistent, controlled leg movement on a sturdy, hardwood track. This makes sure that your heel slides are the same every time!

Your stretch won't vary or change as you attempt a higher number of repititions, experience set-backs from re-injury, or lose control over unsafe household tools.

What if You've Never Gone to a Physical Therapist?

Knee-Flex is used throughout Canadian physical therapy clinics and hospitals.

The idea behind the Knee-Flex® is exactly the same. If you're someone who hasn't had the chance to see a physical therapist you might think that stretching is hard to do without guidance from a medical professional.

In some ways you're right - Without the direct guidance of a physical therapist it's easy to make mistakes when stretching at home. You may have even attempted some stretching you saw in a pamphlet/brochure in a doctor's office, or searched online for muscle stretching techniques. If you try this on your own there is always a risk of re-injuring your muscle.

You can get the same positive results of stretching in physical therapy appointments by using a Knee-Flex® in the comfort of your own home.


Knee-Flex® = Trusted Equipment Used by
Physical Therapists

This device is used by many medical professionals, they rely on the sturdy, sleek design to help their patients achieve improvements in mobility.

Knee-Flex® was created to allow the heel to slide smoothly in a controlled environment, minimizing the chance of reinjury and additional pain. Physical Therapists encounter the same issues every day when attempting to work with people who are undergoing therapy from a serious muscle injury. This is why most therapists in Canada instantly purchased these same devices for their own clinics and have been ordering this device for 10 years!

If you're recovering from serious pain, it allows a more controlled and comfortable method to stretch and strengthen your muscles . The sliding mechanism is extremely smooth and durable, as well as linear (perfectly straight) - this is something that becomes very important when sliding your leg in and out.

The Knee-Flex is an FDA registered device, under facility number 30006334471 and product listing number D150272

The Knee-Flex® is an FDA Registered Medical Device and is suitable for repetitive, industrial usage in hospitals and therapeutic clinics. This device is deemed safe to use without medical assistance and as such is also available for use at home.

Why is it called the 'Knee-Flex®'?

Passive stretching with a Knee-Flex device will help to break up scar tissue.

Well because it does just that, it provides you a sliding, sturdy track to flex your knee and all of the muscles, ligaments and tendons that help to move your leg.

It's a total leg stretching system that only requires you to flex your knee.

This seemingly simple device has assisted in the recovery of thousands of people that have suffered various injuries. Once you are on the path to healing, this device assists you in making a fast and full recovery.

The Knee-Flex® assists you in complete lower-body muscle injury recovery for:

  • Hamstring muscle pulls / pulled hamstring muscle - Over-stretching or over-exerction of your hamstring muscle can be treated with a quick Knee-Flex® warm-up before activity.
  • Calf muscle strain (gastrocnemius muscle pain) - Reduce tightness in your calf muscle (from lunging or pushing off with your leg).
  • Shin splints (posteromedial / anterolateral shin splints) - Reduce the shooting pain from your knee to your ankle with regular stretching.
  • Thigh muscle / quadriceps muscle strain - Ease the radiating pain on the front of your thigh (from your hip to knee) and stiffness / decreased range of motion.
  • Hip muscle pain / groin pulls - Get rid of your sharp inner thigh pain, tightness, tenderness or muscle spasms.
Our Knee-Flex Passive Muscle Strething Device will increase flexibility of your healing tissue and help to break up scar tissue that forms on your muscle.

After using the Knee-Flex® over-time, your muscle will be better prepared to handle higher and higher loads. Eventually you'll reach a stage where your muscle can handle standing for longer and longer periods of time. This is the final stage of recovery, depending on your age, the nature of your injury, your weight and many other factors, it can take the longest time to complete.

But remember, when it comes to deep tissue muscle injuries - it pays to be patient! Rushing your injury recovery almost never pays.

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®.

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.

Get Even More Healing Potential
from Your Knee-Flex®

Regular stretching with a Knee-Flex® will also give you:

  • Chronic Muscle Pain Recovery & Post-Surgery Rehabilitation in the Comfort of Your Own Home

Our Knee-Flex Passive Muscle Strething Device will increase flexibility of your healing tissue and help to break up scar tissue that forms on your muscle.

After you've injured / pulled / strained / sprained your muscle massive amounts of scar tissue will grow all around the micro-tears in your muscle to provide a "temporary fix" and increase stability of your muscle. Scar tissue will constantly grow when you're suffering from a chronic muscle injury and even when you're recovering from open or arthroscopic surgery.

Scar tissue causing your muscle fibers to stiffen up over time. This is why your muscle will feel less and less flexible and where your tightness will come from.

The only solution to get rid of scar tissue and promote growth of healthy, flexible tissue is repeated motion through exercise. The Knee-Flex® will provide natural, fluid, passive stretches that will stretch out the scar tissue increasing the flexibility of your muscle and improving overall range of motion (ROM).

  • You get the Same Benefits Available with any Orthopaedic & Physical Therapy Rehabilitation Program

You'll find that regular lower leg stretching and conservative treatment with any rehabilitation plan will help to:

  • build muscle strength in your hip, thigh, quadriceps, hamstring, calf and shins
  • increase mobility and range of motion (ROM)
  • speed overall healing
  • prevent muscle loss (atrophy)
  • improve muscular function and capability
  • refine muscle fiber tissue alignment and physical balance
  • encourage overall muscle deep tissue flexibility
  • provide a proper warm up for regular exercise
  • promote healthy circulation in your muscle

Using Your Knee-Flex® - Helpful Tips & Tricks

The Knee-Flex® will become an invaluable tool in your recovery. When used correctly, this device can strengthen and stretch four different muscle groups and stimulate blood flow in your soft tissue for a speedier recovery.

Speak to your doctor and/or physical therapist about using the Knee-Flex® device for your rehab exercise. Here are a few things to consider when you start using it:

  • On the 1st session, loop a belt or bathrobe around your foot to assist your efforts. Once you find this is not needed then stop using the loop.
  • Don't worry if you're unable to perform a full stretch when first using this device. Do whatever stretch you can and this machine will assist in increasing your range of motion over the long run.
  • Our Knee-Flex Passive Muscle Strething Device will increase flexibility of your healing tissue and help to break up scar tissue that forms on your muscle.
  • Set up the machine in a stable area free from obstruction. Most of our users find a pillow is very helpful as well for sitting/lying on.
  • Always use the machine slowly and in a controlled manner. Quick, jerky movements are not helpful and will only cause added problems.
  • When placing your heel on and off the machine, use your arms to lift your leg. This will keep the stress off of your injured muscle.
  • Always follow the instruction manual provided with your Knee-Flex®.
  • Phone an AidMyMuscle Adviser toll-free at 1-866-237-9608, if you have any questions about stretching with your Knee-Flex® or how to incorporate other therapies into your stretching routine.

When used properly, the Knee-Flex® has a proven track record of assisting in the speedy recovery of many people suffering from pulled muscles, on-going muscle pain and strained muscles. The Knee-Flex® is without a doubt, the 3rd and final essential tool for complete recovery.

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,

I was skeptical at first as to be expected with anything being purchased online, however I decided to take my chances and just go for it. I tried all that I could to heal plantar fascilitis and nothing seemed to work for me, and the things that did work were taking wayyy to long. I got to the point where I was beyond frustrated I was so devastated that I couldn't run, or even sit for more than 5mins without standing up with excrucitaing pain. I turned to aid my tendon and so far I have nothing but pleasantries to say about it. I ordered the Night splint and Inferno wrap and I use them everyday needless to say it has only been a week but I do see signs of serious improvement. It even almost seems like my healthy foot is getting jealous so sometimes I put the inferno wrap on it cause it is very soothing. I have only had it for a week so I cant give it a full 5 stars but I am expecting to be back in the next couple weeks updating my review with all pleasnt things Thanks.

Dear MendMeShop,

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

Dear MendMeShop,

I have been using the inferno wrap for about 3 weeks now and the results are outstanding. I could feel relief after the first use of the inferno wrap. About 2 years ago the doctor told me I had plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. The heel of my feet hurt so badly, I could hardly walk. Getting out of bed in the mornings was pain beyond belief. I would hold on to the bed railings to take a step. After going to the doctors and getting cortizone injections, ordering custom made insoles, exercises, taping my arch, and therapy, my feet were still hurting. I stopped the doctor visits for lack of relief. I was paying out so much money with no results. Not knowing what else to do, I prayed and asked God to show me what I could do to get releif. I came across the mend me website and read the entire article on foot problems and the products. What it said made so much sense to me. I felt it would be the right thing for me. I love the way it talks about the body and explain how it should work. What really drew me the most and encouraged me to order was: the site said your body was designed to heal itself. I am a firm believer in organic healing and avoiding medication and surgery whenever possible. When I read about the blood flow I was sold on the product. I know that blood is the life of the body. When I wear the inferno wrap I don't want to take it off. It gives relief and warmth right where it hurts. I will be ordering other products for the feet as well. Thanks for the information you give on each part of the body. I have referred your website to several people for different ailments.

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 have had knee injuries (slight meniscus tears) from time to time as a result of playing soccer. The inferno wrap has proved very beneficial over the last few years. I have recently recovered from an injury sustained back in February and have been using your products to treat my injuries and have had great success with them. Thanks for your company's outstanding service. FYI, I have recommended your products to friends. Regards, Raj

Dear MendMeShop,

I use both the Inferno and cold packs and they are fantastic. I run 3 to 4 triathlons each year and these products have help treat my severe tendonitis in my leg. The only downside is that they don't remind me to use them as often as I should:)

Dear MendMeShop,

I was in the middle of my training for my first Ironman triathlon in Florida, when my running had to come to a complete stop because of tendonitis in my right knee. After a month off and using the Inferno Knee Wrap for one week was able to start back where I left off in my run training and as of November 6th 2010 my Ironman dream is now a reality, finishing my training and the race in Panama City injury free. Thank you Mend Me Shop and the Inferno Knee Wrap for helping me achieve my dream.

Dear MendMeShop,

I'm a believer in your products. My wife had plantar fasciitis a few years ago. I did some research and came across your website. What impressed me the most and encouraged me to purchase was the response I read from your founder to a naysayer whom had never even tried your wraps. This guy was bashing your products when all others were praising them. Your owner invited him to Canada with airfare included to tour the headquarters! Anyway, I figured it was the real deal and so did he after that! My wife's brother is a chiropractor she literally healed her foot with the use of your inferno wrap and another treatment in a couple of weeks! I personally have Golfers elbow in both arms. I've been using the Inferno wrap for about 5 days so far. I haven't used the Freezie wrap yet as I really haven't much pain and no swelling. I definitely feel that it's working already. I'm confident that within a couple of weeks or more I'll be good as new! Thanks again for being part of such a wonderful company that stands behind its product! Sincerely, Jim Rossi

Dear MendMeShop,

Dear Mend Me Shop, I was suffering from the beginning stage of plantar fasciitis and the freezie ice compression and the inferno wrap were a great help to me! The pain and inflammation is gone and if it creeps back up, I use the products for about 30 min each and it takes care of it! I have already recommended it to family members that also have plantar fasciitis. Sincerely, Lara
