Dear MendMeShop,

Dear "Aid My Tendon", I am so happy I found your company when I did an "achilles tendon" search on the internet. The kit has been a Godsend and I can use it in my own home and when it is convenient for me. So far it has given me amazing results. When it starts to flare up again (usually because I have worn the "wrong" shoes) I just go to work on it with the Inferno Wrap. Thanks for making these products available to the public. Yours truly, Glenna

Dear MendMeShop,

My husband, who is in his 50's was feeling pain in his Achilles on one foot. He kept walking on it till it became inflamed and impossible to walk on. My husband sought out help from our Chiropractor, the treatments were very expensive and he could only get one a day. He couldn't walk on it at all. Just moving any part of his body caused him great pain. Going to see anyone would prove unworkable. I couldn't get him in the car as he could not even move his leg. I researched Achilles tendon injury on line. I found an article about the Inferno Wrap. The cost would be far less than trips to the Doctor. It was only a matter of days before he was able to get out of bed once we started the treatments as recommended. It was a week and he was off the crutches. He was able to get back to work after three weeks. He still uses the inferno boot when his Achilles feels sore. I am very grateful for your products and highly recommend them.

Cervical Herniated Disc

The spine is comprised of five distinct segments -- coccyx, sacrum, lumbar, thoracic, and cervical -- from bottom to top. The two most common locations for disc herniation are the lumbar spine (lower back) and the neck area (cervical spine). The cervical spine is comprised of seven vertebrae between the chest and the head.

Anatomy of the spine

A cervical herniated disc can cause a variety of symptoms, including numbness and weakness in the neck, chest, shoulders, and hands. If the herniation is extremely large, it may affect other parts of the body such as the legs. It's important to get an accurate diagnosis by a healthcare professional so that proper treatment can begin. The extent of the symptoms will determine whether surgery is necessary to avoid nerve damage, or if non-surgical therapy is recommended.

Cervial Herinated disc

Reducing the inflammation in the surrounding muscle tissue is one of the first steps in obtaining relief from a herniated disc. Our Back/Hip Freezie Wrap® is one of the best non-invasive treatments for reducing inflammation in cervical herniated disc injury. The Freezie Wrap® with ColdCure Technology® drives the cold deep into your spine without the risk of cryoburn.

Back Pain Treatments

If you have back pain, resting it is recommended. Avoid activities that cause pain or may have caused the injury and begin cold compression treatments as soon as possible.

There are healing tools that can help treat your back pain and speed up the healing process so you can reduce your pain and get back to daily life. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) will promote blood flow to heal your injury faster and more completely than any other methods available.

Freezie Wrap® Cold Compression Therapy

To decrease inflammation of your muscle pull or other back injury doctor's recommend cold compression therapy. For an acute muscle strain, cold compression therapy within the first 48 - 72 hours and after any re-injury is important to limit the amount of damage done to your tissue. Cold compression therapy will relieve pain and swelling as needed and will reduce, or even eliminate, the need for NSAIDs and pain medications.

The Back/Hip Freezie Wrap treats pain, swelling and inflammation caused by muscle and tendon strain while reducing tissue damage.

The Back/Hip Freezie Wrap® is the cold compression tool you need to treat your back pain in an effective and convenient way. It is so versatile it can be worn anywhere over your chest, back, or hip for treatment where you need it.

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 your soft tissue and 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 tissue, you also limit the amount of healing that needs to occur. This is a very important step to get rid of your back pain faster!

The deep cooling effect provided by the Freezie Wrap® slows cell metabolism thereby reducing cellular break-down and tissue damage. Furthermore, because the cold wraps gently numb the nerves, the wraps also reduce pain!

The Freezie Wrap® uses a supercharged cooling gel pack, that chills in the fridge, not in the freezer like ice or other freezer packs, giving you deep cold therapy without the risk of 'cold burns' or cryoburn.

MendMeShop Success Stories

Once the inflammation of your back injury has been reduced, nourishing and strengthening the muscle tissue and surrounding area is recommended. Using Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy will speed your recovery and heal your muscle fibers and other soft tissue more completely. Talk to your doctor or physical therapist to find out which exercises are appropriate for your situation.

Inferno Wrap® Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy

After severe inflammation and swelling is reduced you can begin to treat your back with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®). BFST® increases the amount of blood that flows naturally to your tendon and muscle fibers to nourish your soft tissue which speeds healing.

The Inferno Wrap speeds the healing of back tendon strain, muscle pulls, and tears.

When you rest your back and stop moving around because it hurts, the natural blood flow is reduced, limiting your body's ability to heal itself.

By treating your back with BFST® you can increase your body's blood supply to the muscle fibers and soft tissue and increase your body's natural healing power.

The Inferno Wrap® is the tool you need to treat your sore back because not only does it speeds healing, it relaxes all you back muscles. With BFST®, tissues are safely and gently stimulated. Your body responds with a rapid increase in blood flow to the area, increasing the supply of oxygen and nutrients to injured tissue cells to promote healing and loosen the tissue. Our Back/Hip Inferno Wrap® provides effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief and healing with no side effects.

In addition, the improved blood flow whisks away dead cells and toxins that have built up from the damaged tissue caused by your back injury, further reducing tightness and pain. When you stop moving your back due to pain, your muscles and other tissue can become weaker and dead cells and toxins in the area can cause further tissue deterioration - this can lead to atrophy (muscle weakness and/or deterioration). By clearing the area of toxins and increasing the amount of oxygen and nutrients to your tissue, the risk of atrophy is greatly reduced. Keeping your muscle tissue as healthy as possible throughout the healing process will allow you to improve muscle strength again once your pain has gone and your back has healed.

With these easy-to-use, home therapies, cold compression and BFST®, you will notice significantly reduced pain and an incredible improvement in your back pain.

During your recovery, you may have to modify and/or eliminate any activities that cause pain or discomfort in your back until your pain and inflammation settle. The more diligent you are with your treatment and rehabilitation, the faster you will see successful results!

Dear MendMeShop,

I received the freezer wrap on Friday and used it Saturday evening after walking on my treadmill. The combination of exercise and the wrap after the session worked wonders. I woke up this morning and did not have the pain in my left heel that I have been experiencing for about 6 months. I also use the Inferno wrap - it works well. I use the Inferno in the evening - it is very comforting. I believe the combination of regular exercise, the heat and the cold may cure the plantar fasciitis. I had this condition several years ago that resolved in about 6 weeks. However, this time it has lasted months, perhaps because I was not exercising regularly. This is the first morning I have not had any pain. As a Nurse Practitioner, I wholeheartedly endorse the heat and freezer wraps for plantar fasciitis and possible for other types of foot pain. Thanks so much for these wonderful products.
