Dear MendMeShop,

Dear Mendmeshop, My husband and I are thrilled with the results he's getting from using the Plantar Inferno wrap. He has suffered from an unusually large bone spur in his foot for the last 13 years, which understandably has severely limited his ability to walk comfortably. He was told by several podiatrists that shoe inserts or surgery were his only option. The shoe fittings helped minimally at best and he was pondering foot surgery until he recently tried your foot wrap. Even after the first treatment he noticed his foot felt better. He has been using it daily now for over a week and he can't believe how wonderful his foot feels. Thank you for making a product that is really helping him.

Dear MendMeShop,

Tear of the anterior horn of the lateral meniscus and transverse meniscal ligament. I first want to say that after 6 full weeks of twice daily treatments, I am experiencing a tremendous improvement to my knee stability. No more weakness and loss of balance nor pain. Thanks to all.

Dear MendMeShop,

When I use the knee Inferno wrap consistently it makes a difference. I need a knee replacement but because of my weight issues I can't get the surgery. The wrap gives me much relief. I also tore my rotator cuff and had major reconstructive surgery and 1 year of rehab. Over the years I have stiffness and the shoulder wrap has helped to maintain range of motion. In addition, I have the tortoise shell for the back and I can't say enough. It hits the whole back up to the neck. Wonderful. My sister has planter fasciitis she used the foot wrap consistently for several months, now she only needs to use periodically. I love and use all the products I have purchased and would recommend.

Heal Your Heel With
Cold Compression and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy!

A heel spur is an osteophyte (bony outgrowth or calcium deposit) that develops on the heel bone (calcaneus). You may have a heel spur and not experience any symptoms at all, however, the spur may causes pain and inflammation when it pushes into the soft tissue at the bottom of the heel.

Plantar fasciitis and heel spur inflammation

Heel spurs are strongly related to plantar fasciitis. 70 percent of patients with plantar fasciitis have a heel spur that can be seen on an x-ray. The bottom of the foot is supported by a shock absorber called the plantar fascia. Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of this connective tissue. Plantar fasciitis is caused by excessive wear and tear on the fascia. Every time your foot strikes the ground your plantar fascia is stretched, when your heel lifts off the ground your plantar fascia experiences tension. Any extra tension coming from excessive training can result in overstretching, inflammation and/or micro-tearing of the fascia at your heel, the weakest point.

As your body tries to heal the fascia, a heel spur develops around the bottom and/or the back of your heel which protrudes into the soft tissue. It can vary in shape from a flat, shelf-like growth to a hook-shaped, pointy projection, and can extend forward up to a half inch. Your body hopes this extra bone and tissue will help to relieve the pressure on your plantar fascia. Heel spurs can affect your ability to do your usual work and/or activities, and can also trap and irritate the nerves in your heel area. They can change the way you walk and can lead to knee, hip and low back injuries. If severe, they may require medical intervention

Ease spur pain with MendMeShop Therapeutic Products.

Heel spurs are considered a self-limiting condition, which means you can control the pain and the progression of the condition by making some simple changes to your lifestyle. For example, improper shoes such as high heels and training too hard and too suddenly can put excessive strain on the plantar fascia. However, sometimes heel spurs and plantar fasciitis are related to other conditions like faulty foot mechanics such as being flat footed or having a high arch which affects the way you walk and run.

If you have inflammation in your heel or plantar, it's very important to heal it quickly and completely. If you don't, it may plague you forever.

Treatments for heel spurs and plantar fasciitis are aimed at reducing inflammation, pain, increasing the fascia's range of motion, and speeding recovery time. A speedy and effective recovery should be your highest priority, not only so you can return to a high level of performance, but also because prolonged injuries can lead to scar tissue and a higher risk of re-injury.

At the onset of heel spurs and/or plantar fasciitis immediate measures should be taken in order to avoid serious damage. Ignoring the symptoms, thinking they will go away naturally, and continuing with activities that cause foot pain will certainly lead to more serious problems in the future.

MendMeShop Success Stories

Therapeutic products from MendMeShop® provide you with the tools necessary to relieve the pain of heel spurs and plantar fasciitis and dramatically speed the healing.

Heel Spur and Plantar Fasciitis Treatments

Conservative treatments tend to be the best way to treat heel spur inflammation and plantar fasciitis. To improve healing time and treat your pain naturally, cold compression therapy, and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy are recommended.

Although you can not get rid of the spur with home treatments, you can treat the tissue around it to reduce the inflammation and pain. For sharper spurs that consistently irritate the heel tissue, surgery may be required to remove it. But regardless of whether you will need surgery, proper treatments at home can reduce damage, pain, and inflammation and allow you to carry on with your activities.

Cold Compression Therapy

When you are experiencing pain, swelling, and inflammation in your heel and at the bottom of your foot, doctors recommend cold compression therapy. Cold compression therapy reduces tissue damage caused by swelling and inflammation and treats your foot pain quickly.

Plantar Fasciitis Treatment with Cold Compression Wraps

Cold compression therapy works by interrupting and slowing nerve and cell function in the damaged area. This is important because once blood vessels are damaged, they can no longer carry oxygenated blood to the plantar fascia and tissue cells begin to break-down.

The Plantar/Spur Freezie Wrap® allows you to treat yourself in an effective and convenient way and the deep cold provided by the Plantar/Spur Freezie Wrap® slows cell function thereby reducing cellular break-down. Furthermore, because the cold wraps serve to numb the nerves, the wraps also reduce pain!

The cooling gel pack inside every Freezie Wrap® have been designed with ColdCure Technology®. The specially formulated gel allows the pack to be supercharged in the fridge, not in the freezer like ice or other freezer packs. The Freezie Wrap® gives you deep cold compression therapy without the risk of 'cold burns' or cryoburn to the layers of your skin. This unique technology, inside a soft and completely adjustable neoprene wrap, gives you comfortable, convenient, and effective cold compression therapy.

In addition, the specially designed foot wrap has an adjustable compression band so you can control the amount of pressure that feels good around your foot.

Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy

Once inflammation and swelling have been reduced in your heel and plantar fascia, nourishing and strengthening the tissue in your foot is the goal. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) promotes blood flow to the treatment area bringing the necessary oxygen and nutrients to your plantar fascia and other weakened tissue. BFST® speeds up the body's natural repair process for faster healing and stronger tissue.

MendMeShop Inferno Wrap and how it works.

Extremities of the body, like the foot, do not receive much blood flow naturally and when you stop moving your foot because it hurts, you are not creating the natural blood flow it usually receives. With the use of Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy you can increase your body's blood supply to the plantar fascia.

In addition, the fresh blood flow whisks away dead cells and toxins (including lactic acid, commonly found in trigger points) that have built up from the injury leaving the area clean and better prepared for healing. Our Plantar/Spur Inferno Wrap® provides effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief with no side effects.

Keeping your planter fascia and foot as healthy and strong as possible throughout the healing process will allow you to get back to your regular activities faster. The Plantar/Spur Inferno Wrap®, available exclusively from MendMeShop®, provides effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief and healing with no side effects.

The benefits of BFST® do not end once your foot pain stops! Even when your foot has healed, your activities can put it at risk of an overuse injury, tightness, or another tear. An Inferno Wrap® treatment before activity is an easy way to warm up the tissues and prepare them for use. Then, end your day with another treatment to prevent tightness from setting in overnight. This incredible healing tool will be the ticket to healthy feet for years to come!

How to Order

During your recovery, you will probably have to modify and/or eliminate any activities that cause pain or discomfort in your foot until your pain and inflammation settle. With these easy-to-use, home therapies you will notice great improvement within a few weeks, with most patients seeing some improvement quickly. The more diligent you are with your treatment and rehabilitation, the faster you will see successful results. If you start using your foot before it has a chance to heal properly (even though it may feel better), you can end up doing a lot more damage than good!

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.

Dear MendMeShop,

I have been a hairdresser and esthetician for over 20 years now. I can not tell you how happy I am to have found your products. The Inferno Wrap for my wrist is a MIRACLE to me. I have suffered intense pain for the past 3 years due to overuse of my hands. I had been having acupuncture for the past 3 years. It helped for a while but the pain always returned. I was told I would need surgery and physical therapy. After only a week using the inferno wrap I have no pain. I have 3 other hairdressers in my salon hooked on your products too. One for shoulder and back pain. We are all so happy now. I will tell everyone I know about MendMeShop. Judy Barry
