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 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. 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!

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

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.

Over the past eight months I have been suffering from shoulder and arm pain. I just kept thinking that the pain would go away on its own. When I reached the point where I was unable to raise my arm
over my head without assistance and forget about
[See Full Review]putting my arm behind my back.

I decided that a trip to the doctor was due. She ruled out that I had an injury to the Rotator Cuff itself and determined that I had a soft tissue injury. Due to repetitive movement and heavy lifting.

She suggested that I try physical therapy. With my work schedule and family obligations I knew that was going to be very difficult and I wanted something that I could fit into my schedule. So I began doing research on the internet for alternative treatments and exercises.

That's when I found your product on the internet. I was somewhat skeptical as to rather it would perform as stated, but decided to give it a try. It was stated that it could take up to three weeks to feel results.

BUT I am here to say that for myself it has done better. I have been using the Freezie Wrap for a week and have already felt some improvement. I can now raise my arm to just about shoulder height unassisted, and can now almost get my finger tips back behind my back.

I make a point of using Freeze Wrap as soon as I get home from work to relieve the stress to my muscles from work and to keep the inflammation down. Now that I have gotten some of the inflammation gone I intend to incorporate the Inferno Wrap treatment to my regiment to just before going bed to aid the healing process and aid in a better night's sleep.

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 t
[See Full Review]ake 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!!!!!!

The best part is no co-pay every time I treat myself with these products. You can have relief from pain in your feet and your wallet.

WOW! I'm certain that I'm going to be "hard...
WOW! I'm certain that I'm going to be "hard pressed" to fully explain just how "GREAT" my personal experience has been with MendMeShop. I'm in my mid 50's......(really?....it ain't ALL that old!)........and have had many injuries in my past. The "mai[See Full Review]n" injury, that caused me to seek out the information that resulted in my finding these great folks, is my right knee. I tore the meniscus, way back "yonder" in 1973. Over the years I have managed to do MORE and more damage to BOTH of my knees. WHY? Well it's because I used to "Steer Wrestle" (bulldogging). I'm here, now, to tell you that when you jump off of a running horse.....onto a running 500 pound steer.....STOP this steer, and "throw" him to the ground, well.......it's HARD on the knees!


I've had four surgeries on my right knee, and two on the left, to repair torn meniscus, ACL, and other conditions. I shattered my right ankle, in a truck/wild hog accident, in 1975, and have several screws in that one. In 1978, I shattered my right wrist....and have 3 screws in it! Over the years, I've managed to break (according to my Doc.) about 70% of the bones in this tired old body!


I ordered the Knee Inferno Wrap. This was after I re-injured my knee and was slated for surgery. Now....as a rancher, the busiest time of the year is between January 1st, and December 31st! Sometimes it is a bit more busy during the spring, summer, and fall! I simply could NOT afford to be "off" my feet for a month. So.....I limped around on crutches for several weeks and was trying to "get by" until possibly November, or so. It just so happened, that I decided to look on the Internet for some kind of "fix", and found the MendMeShop website. The rest is history!


After placing the order, I made several calls, to some Veterinarian buddies, and asked their opinion about this type of treatment. Every one of them gave me a positive report. I was extremely pleased with the shipment time. I think I had my equipment in about five days.....and I live in South Texas. That's a long ways from Canada. I started treatments immediately! Now, let me tell you this, "I can't explain "HOW" this results happened as quick as it did, BUT..... after the third treatment ... I walked out to my truck without the crutches!" That happened on the second day, in the evening! After another week and a half, I had almost ZERO pain, and NO limp! Amazed? It's like a miracle happened!


I will go so far as to say this, "If the folks at MendMeShop would allow me to buy into their business.....I WOULD!" I believe in this company with every fibre of my being. I can NOT say enough positive "stuff" about this Company and the people that operate it! They are as friendly as Texans, (that's saying something, right there folks!) and their products perform like they say! The equipment is very well built.....their guarantee is exceptional......and the price is extremely reasonable! BUT! Above all, IT WORKS! It's been about six weeks and no pain! Now, I'm not looking forward to another injury, although I know that will happen, but now..... I'm prepared! Bring it on!


One last thing, did I mention that my experience with MendMeShop was a 100% positive experience? When you talk to these folks, you'll soon learn that too! In fact, you have my word that if you use these products, for what they are intended, you will be 100% satisfied also. In my honest opinion, you'll be well satisfied...as I am!

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.

Your communication via email and te

Continue the good work!

I wanted to get back to you with feedback about the Inferno Wrap. So far we are very pleased with the size, light weight, flexibility and comfort of the wrap.

It is very convenient the way the cord is set up. If one has to leave the area for a m

from the wall, you can just detach at the segment.

I like the on/off switch, too. It is much easier to see which setting it is on.

Everything about this new product seems more
intelligent and user friendly. A lot of thought was put into improving on the old product. Well done to all involved!!!

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 fi
[See Full Review]bromyalgia 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.
