Dear MendMeShop,

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 began 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.

What is Phonophoresis?

Phonophoresis is the use of ultrasound to enhance the delivery of topically applied drugs.

Effectively, medicines contained within or under the ultrasound gel are pushed by the sound waves of the ultrasound and driven deep below the skin.

Phonophoretically administered medications can penetrate the body at a much deeper level than those massaged by hand over the surface of the skin.

What Medications Can Be Used?

Not all medications can be delivered phonophoretically. The process is dependent on many, many factors. For example, the type of drug and molecule size are critical.

The drug molecule has to be just the right size to be picked up by the ultrasound waves, and the right size to pass through the body tissue. As well, the medicinal molecule can't react negatively with the ultrasound gel.

It must also be able to survive the thermal and vibrational effects of the ultrasound. The delivery of medications via ultrasound is truly a science unto itself.

The duration of the treatment, and the need to adhere to a specific dosage, is also a large consideration. Obviously, the longer ultrasound is used over a topical phonophoretic drug, the more medication is delivered and the deeper it goes.

Drugs that require very exact doses, like insulin for example, cannot be controlled accurately enough to be delivered via phonophoresis. Many natural analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs, are excellent candidates for phonophoretic application though.

Avoid Harming Your Body With Pain Killers!

One of the greatest benefits to delivering medications via phonophoresis is that the medication can be delivered locally to a desired area.

Oral pain killers and anti-inflammatory drugs are introduced to the entire body in equal amounts. Even if you only need pain relief in your tennis elbow, or an anti-inflammatory in your swollen bursa, when using oral medications, you end up drugging your entire body - including your brain, your heart, and your lungs - even if they might not need the drug.

With phonophoresis, the part of the body that receives the medication is the precise part of your body that needs it.

Where is Phonophoresis Typically Used?

Phonophoresis is most commonly used by Physical Therapists and Chiropractors for the treatment of localized physical injuries. As a very cutting edge technology, phonophoresis is currently being studied for the use of a vast array of medications.

Dear MendMeShop,

Thank you to Paul and to Darren Cole for your follow-up emails after my product purchase of 3-11-13. I followed your suggestion of trying the products for 60 days. I am happy to advise you that I am now able to walk normally again without any pain. I still use the night splint but now only use the freezie or inferno wraps if my foot feels tired or sore.
