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 spent 7 years in the gym walking one hour and working out. I lost 85 pounds in about 2 years with a lot of hard work and dedication. After I left the gym in 2008 due to it closing I started having problems about a year later. I recently had surgery on my left shoulder on Jan 4th of this year to shave down the bone to leave enough space for my shoulder joint to work. It seemed to be healing slowly, until I probably reinjured it trying to cut down a small tree. I went back to my Orthopedic Surgeon for my follow up and had to have a cortizone shot in June so I could be painfree while on a long awaited vacation. The shot lasted until September and had another shot October 26 with a warning from the Dr that if I couldn't get any better through therapy by Jan 6 2011 I would have to have the full surgery with my tendons and muscles sewn up to the top of my Rotator Cuff. I told him I don't want to go through the pain again, since I can't take pain medication due to my daily med I have to take for PTSD and can't take them both at the same time. So I did some research for the last 2 months and kept coming up with the MendMeShop Left Shoulder Inferno Wrap. I printed all the material and showed it to my OS and he said to try it if I think it will help me. I received it in 2 days last Friday and was out of town overnight.So I didn't get to try it until Saturday night. I tried it wrapped over a sweater with a thermal shirt underneath and the heat went right through and felt like I was at the physical therapist. The next day I did a few 60 minute sessions and I could feel my muscles ache a little bit, but NO PAIN praise God !!! I was buying a large tube of Extra Strength Muscle Rub with 16 % Menthol once a week to bear the pain along with 800 ML of Ibuprofen.Today is Thursday and I haven't had to put any rub on my shoulder since coming home Saturday night. This Inferno Wrap is incredible and is worth every penny. I am on Disability so I can't afford to waste a penny, but this purchase is becoming a lifesaver for me. Sometimes I just unplug from the charger, tuck the little 8 inch connector, then I tighten the wrap to make it a compression support and the heat stays in it for hours and allows me to be able to function a lot less painful since I am left handed also. If I could give it a 10 star rating instead of a 5 star I would. I will keep you all up to date a few times a week as I progress, along with any replies I might receive. Sun Nov 14, 2010 2:51 pm

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 Chiropract

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.

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.

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 al[See Full Review]l 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!

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 th
[See Full Review]e 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!!

Just a little note to thank you for your wonderful products-they really work.

Some months ago I was diagnosed with a meniscus tare, after seeing the specialist and getting an injection which only temporarily took away the pain. Facing the possibili

Before I started the treatment it was painful and difficult to walk, now I am walking an average of 14,000 steps a day without pain or discomfort.

I'm 52 & in fairly good shape, I mountain bike for hours - at least twice a week. I kayak offshore for hours twice a week. I also snorkle & work out.

So when my son invited me to play paint ball, my leg muscles were strong enough to do what my mind
[See Full Review]told them...to a point where my left leg (the one that got bent backwards playing little league baseball 29 years ago) became so painful the next day.

I was shocked & amazed how I had gone from in great shape to a hobbling old man.

A bit of research I re-learned hot before & cold after a workout/activity.

Cold packs are cheap at the drug store & heat pads are too, but destroyed a few of these in the microwave oven to heat. I found the frozen packs seemed a bit too much & the heat pads ether nearly burned me or wasn't hot enough to get deep.

I then went back & ordered your hot & cold products AND MY PRODUCTS GOT HERE IN MAUI IN TWO DAYS ARRIVING ASTONISHINGLY ON A SATURDAY !!!!

I now heat up both my knees before a workout or just as good treatment & cool 'em down after. I feel like I'm 99% better but I'll continue to use these products as I feel it'll keep me from getting a knee injury.

The relief is so wonderful...I paddle for hours and I have no issues.

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.

Thank you for such a wonderful product.

I developed tendonitis in my left ankle about...
I developed tendonitis in my left ankle about a year ago, after having some pain and realizing I needed to go to the doctor to see what I?d done! In November, I was told it was tendonitis and to wear a ?boot? or air cast and that they would p[See Full Review]rescribe physical therapy. I was told that I did not need to wear the boot 24/7, but anytime it was painful or would be using my feet a lot, I should use it.

Even though I?m a type A and like to multi-task and move quickly, I wore the boot, but boy did it get in my way. The physical therapy definitely helped, and they gave me some exercises to do at home and while gone for about two weeks.



I graduated from physical therapy in January, and although my ankle did not really feel stable, the pain had diminished. However my body had aches and pains, some sciatica, my legs had cramping and those worsened whenever using the boot for long walking periods, as suggested by PT?s and doctor.

Basically, we dediced that all this had helped, but anytime there was a strain put on that ankle, it was back to swelling and pain. And, the boot helped to keep pressure off the injury, but basically caused more damage to the rest of me.



Frustrated, I decided to search tendonitis on line, and was looking for other modalities for healing. Voila! This lead me to the MendMeShop. With their 60 Day Money Back Guarantee, Free Shipping on orders over $200.00 and great support ? I decided to purchase (I mean how could I go wrong)!



I got the Achilles Inferno Wrap (for pain), the Achilles Freezie Wrap (for swelling, although after using the Inferno really didn?t have a swelling problem) and the 5 Year Extended Warranty on about the 20th of June this year.

Read the instructions, called with a couple of questions and got great personalized service, and started using the Inferno Wrap as directed!



Immediately my ankle was back to its more normal size and most of the pain was gone. I am able to move freely, actually am working a few days a week on my feet 8-9 hours, and although I don?t believe my tendon is totally healed yet ? I believe it will be as I continue to use the Inferno Wrap.



I simply saw that the PT (which included some ten treatments) was giving me snippets of relief. The boot left me wondering if it wouldn?t cause other damage even though it took the pressure off the tendon when I was unable to walk on it.


The Inferno Wrap, and the few times I?ve needed the Freezie Wrap, have done more for me and has been worth every penny spent. I know I?ve saved 100?s in PT had I not met TheMendMe Shop and their 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 who
[See Full Review]m 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!

Dear Paul,
Dear Paul,

I wanted to e-mail you and let you know how things are going. In your last e-mail to me you made a very profound statement that I had never heard before. I have been to several doctors over the past 10 years and not any one of them eve
[See Full Review]r told me that snapping hip syndrome was a manifestation of short leg syndrome.

I truly think that many of my problems are layers that have had to have been slowly peeled away to find out what the problem is that is causing each and every one of them.

I thought about the statement that you made and I applied it.

Several years back I had a chiropractor tell me that I had short leg syndrome and that I had fallen arches in my right foot and leg. He ordered me an orthotic and a lift to make up the difference. My foot hurt all the time and my right hip hurt all the time and so I stoppd wearing them. A few years later I discovered that I had a bad right ovary. Once I had a doctor that agreed that it was bad and removed it and all that pain went away I was left with my right foot hurting. I found arch supports that made that better but then I had the bursitus and snapping hip syndrome symptoms.

No Doctor knew what to do for me and basically tried to give me pain medication to cover it up. I don't want to cover anything up. I want to find the root of the problem and treat it. So, I got to thinking about your statement. (I know it seems like I am going around this same tree, but I will get there) My thought was that because of the pain I was suffering from my ovary, maybe with that all gone I should try the lifts again and see what happens. I am telling you...that one little statement you made took care of my bursitis and my snapping hip syndrome.

I am no longer suffering from any of that. I am sleeping well at night. Thank you for your statement.

You just don't know how much that has meant to me. You don't know me, you have never met me but you literally saved the quality of my life. It took me a few days after I read your e-mail to put two and two together so to speak but it was worth trying again. Thank you so much.
