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:
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

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

I'm usually a bit of a skeptic but I am...
I'm usually a bit of a skeptic but I am absolutely amazed at the improvement in my knee. I was diagnosed with Lateral tendonitis - never knew it could be so painful.
I actually started walking again yesterday and look forward to getting back to Boo[See Full Review]tcamp soon.
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 kne[See Full Review]e 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.
I just wanted to let you know how happy I have been with my wrist wrap.
I broke my leg, the tibia and fibula January 10, 2013. I had a lot of soft tissue damage to my foot since I fell off a pier and landed on gravel with my foot. My tendons ar[See Full Review]e so tight and at night they wake me up a lot, had a metatarsal lump on the bottom of my foot which gave me issues.
I was going to order the foot pad but the lady advised me to get the wrist wrap since the top of my foot was involved and she said I could probably wrap it around different places and she was so right. I am much better. I have been using it about a month now and I can tell you that I am much better. The energy from the wrap helps my tendons to stretch out and although I am not 100%, I have gone from 50% to 75% in this one month.
I only wish I had found you earlier in my ordeal and I would probably be 100% by now.
I would recommend your product to anyone who is having tendon issues after an injury. Thank you so much[Close Review]
The Inferno ankle wrap & the Freezie ankle...
The Inferno ankle wrap & the Freezie ankle wrap have done wonders for me.
My foot dr did prescribe orthotics for me being that I walk on concrete floors for 9+ hrs a day.
It did take some time, but these two products have tremendously helped me w[See Full Review]ith reducing inflammation & increasing blood flow to my Achilles area which has greatly aided in the healing process.
Have been using the knee wrap for about 5 days & it has actually already made a difference.
First, there is a lot less pain when walking and secondly the external knee temperature (feeling by hand- not very scientific) is now almost the same for bo[See Full Review]th knees. When I started with the wrap the right knee was obviously the hotter knee indicating inflammation, I guess.
I have been using the wrap three times a day for 20 minutes on and at least two hours off with at least 15 minutes each day on the stationary bike. I'm retired & have the time.
The wrap seems really well made which it should considering the price and it is large enough to fit the largest knee. I also like the three temperature levels and certainly the built in 20 minute shut off. [Close Review]

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[See Full Review] 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.[Close Review]

Your Knee Inferno Wrap arrived in the UK last Monday and my son has been using it for the past week. 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[See Full Review] 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.
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.
He has now returned to work with full mobility although he continues to use the wrap prior to excercise as it warms the muscles thoroughly.
I had suffered (really suffered!) with Achilles Tendonitis for almost two years, and spent much time and money going to orthopedists and finally a podiatrist. That last visit made me feel there was no hope, but I decided to go on the internet and I [See Full Review]found the MendMeShop.
I read about the Inferno Wrap, and decided to call and ask more. I figured that the cost of this would be a drop in the bucket to what I'd already spent in co-pays over the past couple of years.
The person at the MendMeShop was knowledgable and very helpful. She advised me on a plan of use, and offered to be a continuing resource for me.
Once I received the Inferno Wrap I followed the advice I'd been given. I used it on my elevated ankle/foot three times a day for 20 minutes each time. (First applying ice for 10 minutes when my ankle was particularly swollen.) Within 3 months of faithful use, I was able to walk without pain. What a relief! And now whenever I feel the slightest indication of discomfort, I use the Inferno Wrap for 20 minutes -- sometimes twice a day.
I have recommended the MendMeShop to friends without hesitation. I feel so appreciative that I found the website on the internet. I also told my primary physician about it so that he could tell other patients to try this wonderful resource.
Today I'm writing from Georgia where I am visiting friends and family. Guess what I packed to come with me?! Right! My Inferno Wrap!
You all met and exceeded - not just my expectations, which were pretty modest, but my hopes at a time when I felt almost desperate!
I recently purchased the inferno wrap July 5th 2012 and I am using it diligently, I have seen positive results already in just a few weeks. I no longer need to walk with a cane. I would like to than[See Full Review]k MendMeShop ever so much for giving back me my life. I will continue to use the inferno wrap and I have spread the good word to all my friends on how MendMeShop product has helped me.
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 orde[See Full Review]r 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.[Close Review]
I purchased the Back/Hip Inferno Wrap in a...
I purchased the Back/Hip Inferno Wrap in a last-ditch effort to help a partially torn gluteus medius tendon in my left hip.
Here?s the story:
I have suffered from fibromyalgia for 14 years. I know pain and I usually know how to deal with it. [See Full Review]However, for the entire year of 2013, I had horrible left hip pain. I was told it was probably bursitis and had several injections into the hip joint and bursa.
Finally, in September 2013 I had an MRI which showed a partially torn gluteus medius tendon. My pain management physician said to me, ?There?s absolutely nothing I can do for you, go see an orthopedic surgeon.? The orthopedic surgeon told me, ?It?s not bad enough for surgery. There?s absolutely nothing I can do for you, use a cane and rest for six months to a year.?
I was devastated that there seemed to be no help and my fibromyalgia pain medications could not even touch the hip pain. So, I used a cane and did my best to rest, but I have my own catering business and four teenagers/young adults in my home. ?Rest? is really not in my genetic makeup.
By April of 2014, the pain was still present and intense. I would have a couple of weeks of not needing a cane, but if I sat down wrong, I?d be in pain again and need the cane. I was extremely discouraged and quite frankly, fed up. One of my daughters was graduating in May and we had planned a graduation trip to Disneyland at the beginning of June. It would be two of my daughters, their friend, and their friend?s mom. Desperate to try anything new, I found the information for your company online. Even though it was a hit to my budget, I felt inspired to try your product. I used it regularly leading up to our trip and even took it on our trip to use each evening.
Now, in the past several years, we have taken our children to Disneyland and after the first day in the park, I?ve needed a wheelchair to endure the rest of the trip. Forget about enjoying it. However, this time I was so wicked happy to wake up on our second day feeling good and not even needing my cane!!!! I made it through THREE days of Disneyland and a total of 12 hours driving a car with much less pain and stiffness. I can totally attribute it to the Inferno wrap and quite honestly, God.
I am grateful for the Inferno wrap and still use it daily. Thank you!
This Steve's wife, Sam, writing to thank you for your follow-up and for making these great products available.
I had been suffering from tendinitis for MONTHS. The pain had gotten so bad, I could not find any comfortable position for my arm which w[See Full Review]ould throb and ache constantly. If I moved it wrong, I'd get a searing, stabbing pain that was truly excruciating. I was taking 8 ibuprofins a day and still not getting relief.
My husband was quite concerned and researched my condition on line. That's when he found your website.
He ordered the inferno wrap. I've been using it for just over a week now and my arm is almost back to normal. It is miraculous. That pain is GONE. If I move wrong, there is still some soreness, but my arm hasn't felt this good in months!
I intend to go online and write a review to encourage others to give your products a try. For less than the cost of one visit to the doctor (actually, I DID go to my doctor who just prescribed a strong pain killer...) I got a long-term solution to my problem. Thank you thank you thank you!
I don't remember if I told you this, but about 20 years ago I had orthoscopic surgery on my knee. It never got back to normal.
Lost a lot of flexibility in that knee and suffered with pain most[See Full Review]ly at night. Thought it was arthritis. It felt out of joint and I was painful to straighten it at night. And when I would get up out of bed or after sitting for awhile I would have to "ease" into position to be able to walk on it.
Last fall, I injured my knee in the garden. It was very painful to bear weight on it. In fact I was scooting around the house in an office chair on wheels. The doctor said the 'popping' in my knee was due to out-of-place ligament from the orthoscopic surgery.
I started using the inferno wrap and ice wrap alternatively and still can't believe how fast my knee heeled. I no longer use either.
About a week ago I started doing water aerobics and it feels soooo good!
I do have a lot of arthritis, and it's bone-on-bone. However the pain in straightening that knee is no longer there! All those years of pain seem more like a bad dream! It's wonderful to be able to get up from sitting and move freely! Now my goal is to strengthen my knee with exercise.
So far so good. After using a variety of ice packs there is no comparison in comfort and success of reducing swelling in the affected areas with these ?Freezie Wraps?.
We will continue to use them and let you know how it goes!

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 mon[See Full Review]th layoff. I am 62. I definitely recommend Inferno Wrap as an alternative to surgery.
Thanks again, Randy Best
Yesterday I told someone about your great Inferno products who has a foot injury.[Close Review]

I?ve been recommending your Knee Inferno Wrap! I?m getting better!
I really didn?t notice much difference until about a month of using this twice a day. But now I?m really feeling so much better.
Last weekend I walked 3 miles. I couldn[See Full Review]?t walk 3 blocks a few months ago without pain and swelling of my knee.
Did want to let you know that I was extremely pleased with both the Knee Inferno and the Knee Freezie Wrap that I ordered, the quality is outstanding and should serve our family well over the coming years when required.
The Knee Inferno provided mu[See Full Review]ch needed relief while I waited eight weeks for my appointment with an Orthopedic practice in my area - very glad I chose to make the investment.
I thank the One Above for having your website befall on me.
My Inferno Wrap is absolutely perfectly designed, and absolutely perfectly works as advertised. My first-20 minute treatment tells it all: My Inferno Wrap, from the get-go, provided complet[See Full Review]e relief, and unquestionable will keep doing the same on the other parts of my injured body.
My Inferno Wrap: Just Perfect. Period.
Also, thank you for your patience, as I unloaded my many questions on you.
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 be[See Full Review]gan 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.[Close Review]
