Dear MendMeShop,

I have been using the Leg/Arm Inferno Wrap for almost a week now and cannot believe how much the tendonitis in my arm has improved. It's a great product.

Dear MendMeShop,

I fell down on ice last March, hit my left shoulder on the ground pretty hard and stirred up an old injury that hadn't bothered me for twenty years. I was in a great deal of pain and tried everything I could think of that might help. I only found temporary relief from the pain. It wasn't until I began using your Shoulder Inferno Wrap that I truly began to heal and the pain slowly began to subside. After several months, I still use the Wrap daily to maintain the healing and progress I've made. I then also sought the advice of a physical therapist because in addition to the pain I used to have before using the Wrap, I was still dealing with stiffness and a very limited range of motion. After examining me, the therapist said I didn't have rotator cuff issues just muscle issues, a thing called "frozen shoulder". For seven weeks now I have received help from a massage therapist and am slowly improving the range of motion. I chose to work with her because her sessions include massage and stretching. A session leaves my shoulder feeling slightly sore. I use the Inferno Wrap afterwards and the heat I feel as it works relieves the soreness. I am sure using the Wrap also helps the muscles "remember" longer the right way they are supposed to feel and function. Combining the Wrap with massage therapy has been a winning combo for me! Do I dare confess...I love the Wrap so much that I will definitely buy another one. The Back Wrap will be my next purchase from you. I mean this whole-heartedly - thank you for the Wrap! I am also pleased with your customer service. Dealing with you was a pleasure. You really do care about your customers! I am delighted and impressed with your product and your people. __________________

Achieve 100% Achilles Rehabilitation!

Combine a Freezie Wrap® and Inferno Wrap®

Tendon tissue is a fibrous flexible connective tissue between your muscles and bones. The tendon transfers the energy produced by the contracted muscle allowing movement of the bone.

Achillies tendon and anatomy of the lower leg.

The Achilles is the strongest tendon in the body. Connecting the heel and the lower calf muscles of the leg, the Achilles is responsible for supporting the largest muscle group in the body (the legs), enabling motion and performing under intense muscle contraction during physical activity.

Most commonly, a tear or complete rupture of the tendon occurs as a result of tightness in the lower legs, poor or inappropriate footwear, unstable training ground, and/or sudden changes in training intensity.

While the Achilles tendon has numerous associated conditions, including common injuries like shin splints. The most prevalent, Achilles tendonitis, is characterized by a gradual tightness and soreness that worsens unless treated.

Discomfort or pain while palpating (lightly pinching) the tendon is a good indication of Achilles tendonitis. This injury is problematic among athletes, especially runners and professional dancers, as both activities place excessive stress on the tendon.

Achilles Tendonitis is a degenerative condition and should not be left untreated, otherwise a complete rupture of the fibrous tissues may eventually result - a condition that is much more difficult to treat and may require surgery.

I would very much like to write a review for your wraps since they have been such a help to me.

I am an avid tennis player that has this year suffered from both elbow and Achilles tendonitis. For years I've been the best in my club but once my tendonitis set in I just couldn't compete.

I tried creams and pain killers and bands but they didn't get me better. I was beginning to fear I'd never recover. Then I ordered a BFST kit and cold wrap from you and things have really turned around.

The tightness and inflammation seem to be pretty much gone and I can't say enough about how much the cold wrap helped for pain - it was like it was sucking the pain right out of my ankle - truly amazing!

Too bad for the rest of the club. They thought I was out for the season and now I'm back!

The best way to avoid a tendon injury is to maintain a decent level of fitness and to warm-up properly before performing intense exercise. Warming up includes light jogging and stretching to increase blood flow and elasticity to the tendons.

Achilles Tendon Treatments

It is important to treat Achilles tendon injuries as soon as possible, as any activity or strain you put on your tendon can re-injure it further. Though the pain, discomfort, and inconvenience of an Achilles condition can be overwhelming, it is possible to overcome it.

Scar tissue builds on the Achilles tendon as the tears heal. The build up causes pain and inflexibility in the tendon making it less flexible and more prone to further injury.

The trick with any tendon injury is getting it to heal with minimal scar tissue formation. Even with optimum healing, there is always less elasticity in a previously injured tendon. This will cause the tendon to hurt, during exercise and everyday activities. However, if you heal your injury efficiently and quickly, your chance of re-injury later on is much lower than average.

Allowing your Achilles tendon to rest is always recommended following injury. Avoid all activities that may have caused the injury or irritation and begin cold compression treatments as soon as possible. The Achilles tendon is a difficult tendon to rest completely as it is an essential tendon for walking and daily activities. Fortunately, there are healing tools that can help treat your tendon and speed up the healing process so you can get back to a life without pain and risk of further injury. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) will promote blood flow to heal your tendon faster and more completely than any other methods available.

Customer Reviews

Although steroid injections may provide temporary relief from the pain of Achilles tendinitis, they should generally be avoided as they weaken the tendon and may lead to a rupture. If you do opt for an injection, doctors usually recommend that you do not participate in strenuous activities for several weeks to reduce the risk of a rupture.

Freezie Wrap® Cold Compression Therapy
Cold Cmpression Freezie Wrap Therapy for your Achilles tendon injury will reduce pain, swelling and tissue damage for faster healing.

Doctors recommend using cold compression as soon as possible following an acute Achilles injury and re-injury to reduce pain and swelling and minimize tissue damage that occurs with soft tissue injuries like tendon tears.

The Ankle/Achilles Freezie Wrap® allows you to treat your Achilles tendon in an effective and convenient way. The wrap is adjustable which allows you to control the compression to a level that is comfortable for you and the gel packs are chilled in the fridge not the freezer. This eliminates the risk of cryoburn, or 'cold burns', on your skin that can be cause by ice and strandard freezer gel packs. You can also wear the Freezie Wrap® for longer treatments so you can enjoy even more relief from your Achilles pain!

Cold Compression Therapy works by interrupting and slowing nerve and cell function in the injured area and reducing swelling that can block blood vessels. This is important because once blood vessels are blocked or damaged, they can no longer carry oxygenated blood through the Achilles tendon and tissue cells begin to break-down. Without cold compression therapy cellular break-down and tissue damage continues as the cells do not get the oxygen they need to survive. By limiting the amount of damage done to your tendon, you also limit the amount of healing that needs to occur. This is a very important step to heal your tendon faster and with less pain!

The deep cooling effect provided by the Ankle/Achilles Freezie Wrap® gives you the fast, effective relief your sore Achilles tendon has been looking for!

Inferno Wrap® Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy
MendMeShop Ankle/Achilles Inferno Wrap speeds the healing of Achilles tendon injuries and tears

After the inflammation and swelling is gone you can begin to treat your Achilles tendon with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy, or BFST®. BFST® increases the amount of blood that flows naturally to your ankle to nourish your tendons, ligaments and muscles to speed healing.

The Achilles tendon receives a limited blood supply compared to other tendons in the body and this significantly reduces its natural ability to heal itself.

By treating your Achilles tendon with BFST® you can increase your body's blood supply to the ankle and increase your body's natural healing power. In addition, the fresh blood flow whisks away dead cells and toxins that have built up from the injury leaving the area clean and able to heal faster. Our Ankle/Achilles Inferno Wrap® provides effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief and healing with no side effects.

Preventing Achilles Tendon Injuries

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! Some methods of preventing Achilles tendon injuries include:

  • Using an Inferno Wrap® on your ankle before exercising, and using a Freezie Wrap® after exercising.
  • Increasing exercise intensity slowly - to condition your tendon to higher levels of exertion/stress.
  • Stretching your tendon before and after exercise (warm up and cool down).
  • Wearing shoes that fit correctly (cushioning under the heel and proper arch height) and support your feet.
  • Running on softer, flat terrain is advisable to avoid injuring or re-injuring your Achilles tendon.

Dear MendMeShop,

As a professional athlete, my body takes a lot of abuse during training. Boxing is very strenuous on the arms and shoulders and I have had a rotator cuff injury for the past two years. The shoulders don't get a lot of blood flow, so injuries don't heal properly on their own. The injury had gotten so bad, I thought I might have to retire from the ring. Then I started using the Inferno Wrap and the Freezie Wrap every day. I use the Inferno Wrap before my workouts to relax and loosen up the muscles in my shoulder and increase the circulation. After a hard training session (sometimes up to 3 hours), I use the Freezie Wrap to deal with any remaining inflammation. My shoulder has felt better in the past two months than it has in the past two years! I highly recommend both of these products to anyone with a chronic injury who is saddled with daily pain. -Molly McConnell Top World ranked professional female boxer
