Dear MendMeShop,

I spent 7 years in the gym walking one hour and working out. I lost 85 pounds in about 2 years with a lot of hard work and dedication. After I left the gym in 2008 due to it closing I started having problems about a year later. I recently had surgery on my left shoulder on Jan 4th of this year to shave down the bone to leave enough space for my shoulder joint to work. It seemed to be healing slowly, until I probably reinjured it trying to cut down a small tree. I went back to my Orthopedic Surgeon for my follow up and had to have a cortizone shot in June so I could be painfree while on a long awaited vacation. The shot lasted until September and had another shot October 26 with a warning from the Dr that if I couldn't get any better through therapy by Jan 6 2011 I would have to have the full surgery with my tendons and muscles sewn up to the top of my Rotator Cuff. I told him I don't want to go through the pain again, since I can't take pain medication due to my daily med I have to take for PTSD and can't take them both at the same time. So I did some research for the last 2 months and kept coming up with the MendMeShop Left Shoulder Inferno Wrap. I printed all the material and showed it to my OS and he said to try it if I think it will help me. I received it in 2 days last Friday and was out of town overnight.So I didn't get to try it until Saturday night. I tried it wrapped over a sweater with a thermal shirt underneath and the heat went right through and felt like I was at the physical therapist. The next day I did a few 60 minute sessions and I could feel my muscles ache a little bit, but NO PAIN praise God !!! I was buying a large tube of Extra Strength Muscle Rub with 16 % Menthol once a week to bear the pain along with 800 ML of Ibuprofen.Today is Thursday and I haven't had to put any rub on my shoulder since coming home Saturday night. This Inferno Wrap is incredible and is worth every penny. I am on Disability so I can't afford to waste a penny, but this purchase is becoming a lifesaver for me. Sometimes I just unplug from the charger, tuck the little 8 inch connector, then I tighten the wrap to make it a compression support and the heat stays in it for hours and allows me to be able to function a lot less painful since I am left handed also. If I could give it a 10 star rating instead of a 5 star I would. I will keep you all up to date a few times a week as I progress, along with any replies I might receive. Sun Nov 14, 2010 2:51 pm

More Tennis Elbow Injury Facts:

Contintually using your elbow while it is injured will cause further damage and result in a slower recovery.


Left untreated, tennis elbow injuries or golfers elbow injuries can be extremely debilitating and lead to life long complications.


Incomplete healing and re-injury can lead to a build up of scar tissue in the elbow causing further injury. BFST is a very effective treatment to aid in scar tissue breakdown of epicondylitis.


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)


Tennis Elbow is the most common overuse injury for the elbow joint.

Dear MendMeShop,

I recently went to a Rheumatologist and was diagnosed with DeQuervains tenosynovitis. I was tested and treated with a cortizone shot, pain medication and was told to continue using the brace I bought previous to the visit. The shot may have lasted all of 4 hours. I went online to research the condition and treatment. I ordered the Wrist Inferno Wrap immediately after reading the reviews and what it could do for the pain I was experiencing. To my surprise this wrap starting working within a couple of days. I could not believe it! Although this treatment indicates it would take atleast 4 to 6 weeks, I am experiencing relief already. The nodule beneath my thumb where I was experiencing the spasms has disappeared. THIS PRODUCT really works. I am so greatful to you and endorse this product 100%. I am hoping to be completely healed with continued use soon. Thank you so much for creating a product that TRULY WORKS. I use as recommended 3 times a day including in the office. I rate this product as EXCELLENT!

Elbow Injuries

golfer elbow medical image

There are many injuries and conditions that can be caused by or present similar symptoms as a Tennis Elbow injury. Only a proper examination by your doctor will help you know for sure what the cause of your discomfort or mobility issues are. It is important to seek medical attention when suffering pain, unfamiliar sensations (like tingling or numbness), and range of motion issues. Your doctor will help to develop a treatment plan for you including conservative treatment methods:

  • Rest - This is important for the overall healing of your elbow is resting. Do as much as possible, even this can be difficult when you have to carry on with daily activities, but resting is very important. During your recovery you will probably have to modify or avoid the activities that put stress on your elbow until your pain and inflammation settles.
  • Elbow Freezie Kit
  • Avoid Activities that Caused Your Injury - While resting your injury it's also important to avoid all activities that may have caused your tissue damage (especially any repetitive movement). Continuing on with regular activities will not only make your injury worse.
  • Apply Effective Cold Compression
    Effective Cold Compression = Treatment with a Freezie Wrap® Immediate cold (using a Freezie Wrap®) will help you to manage pain while getting rid of the pain and inflammation. Reducing inflammation can also relieve some of the pressure that's being placed on your tissue(s) and stop your injury from getting worse.
  • Use Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy - After any inflammation and/or swelling has been reduced, you can use your own blood flow to maximize healing of damaged tissue and maintain healthy blood flow to your tissue. This also boost overall long-term healing of this injury.


Your doctor has given have conservative treatments before even suggesting surgery. It is generally understood by doctors and surgeons, that surgery will introduce more scar tissue into the any already damaged tissue. This added scar tissue will be problematic, requiring more physical therapy and conservative treatment options post-surgery. If not dealt with properly, your elbow injury could end up in worse condition than before the surgery! This is why surgery is only performed as a last resort.

Professional athletes have had access to state of the art treatment therapies for years that allow them to heal more quickly and completely than you or I. This is why athletes that have a serious elbow injury can often get back in the game in a matter of weeks while you could suffer for months or even years (in chronic cases).

With some breakthrough products we have engineered, professional treatment is now available to anyone who needs it. The Elbow Freezie Wrap® is a fantastic home-therapy tool for quickly reducing pain and swelling. Once swelling has reduced somewhat, initiate Elbow Inferno Wrap® treatments to boost the body's own healing process, minimize scar tissue growth (scar tissue will form from surgery) and counter elbow atrophy by maintaining soft tissue elasticity.


What is wrong with my Elbow?

golfer elbow
 where does the pain start and go?

Medial Epicondylitis (Golfer's Elbow) will show the same symptoms as Tennis elbow, except that pain will be experienced on the inside of your elbow. Only a certified medical professional will be able to determine if you are suffering from Medial Epicondylitis.

OsteoChondritis typically affects children and teenagers between the ages of 10-16. In fact it is sometimes referred to as "Little League Elbow".

This condition, caused by loss of blood supply, causes pieces of bone or cartilage to become loose from the elbow. The loose bodies may stay in place or fall into the joint cavity. This can cause intense pain and immobility. You may feel a catching and locking, or popping sensation when you move your arm. An Elbow Freezie Wrap® will reduce swelling leading to restricted blood flow. The Elbow Inferno Wrap® will stimulate circulation of blood to your elbow preventing potential injury caused by restricted circulation. It is important to stimulate circulation before and after exercise or activity. If conservative treatment fails, sometimes arthroscopic surgery is necessary to remove cartilage or bone pieces and smooth cartilage surfaces.

Arthritis & Osteoarthritis (OA) of the Elbow occurs when elbow cartilage is damaged or worn down and arthritis can be happen even from a fracture or elbow dislocation. However, just like with Tennis Elbow, the most common way to develop arthritis in your elbow is from overuse. Repeatedly exerting more stress on the elbow than it can handle can, over time, cause degeneration of the bone and tissues in your elbow. Undue strain could also cause an injury to the surrounding ligaments and if a ligament or other structure is injured, your body will compensate with improper movements (generally, referred to as "compensation"). When your elbow is forced to move in improper or unnatural ways, the potential of developing arthritis greatly increases.

Symptoms of arthritis typically include pain and restricted range of motion. You could feel a "grating" sensation caused by uneven inner-elbow surfaces moving against each other. A 'locking' sensation can be felt if loose pieces of cartilage or bone breaks away and sits in-between the moving structures of your elbow. In latter stages of the condition, arthritis sufferers may experience swelling and swelling associated pain. You may even experience numbness or a tingling sensation in some fingers or around your elbow.

Your physician will typically use an X-Ray machine to determine if you are suffering from arthritis. In the early stages of the condition, arthritis symptoms can be effectively treated with conservative therapies. Your doctor may suggest a corticosteroid injection. While a corticosteroid injection can provide pain relief it will not treat the underlying cause of your condition. Like any medication, there are side effects.

Natural pain relief without the use of medications can be achieved with the Elbow Freezie Wrap®. ColdCure Technology® Technology will provide therapeutic cold exactly where you need it, and the gel will not squish away as it does with ice packs. The Freezie Wrap® is a superior cold compression therapy treatment that will reduce pain and swelling while allowing your body to continue healing your elbow. Manage your elbow pain by using an Elbow Freezie Wrap® and promote your body's natural healing process using the superior treatment.

Elbow Inferno Device

If you have suffered a severe injury or the cartilage of your elbow is worn out, you may need to have surgery. Arthritis Elbow surgery can involve smoothing out and removing loose pieces of cartilage or bone, constructing thicker surfaces with your own tissues, or if necessary, a total joint replacement.

The best way to prevent arthritis from occurring is to take pre-injury steps of regular cooling and heating therapy, combined with stretching (under the supervision of your physical therapist) if possible. If your condition no longer responds to these conservative treatments, your physician may advise surgery to deal with your arthritic joint. In cases such as this, R.C.C.E.® and BFST® can help your body prepare for the surgery by minimizing swelling and maintaining soft tissue elasticity, but even better - the Elbow Freezie Wrap® and Elbow Inferno Wrap® are fantastic rehabilitation tools for your post-surgery recovery plan. Speak to your doctor, surgeon and/or physical therapist make sure that these tools are recommended home treatment therapies for your specific case.

Elbow Bursitis is a condition involving the thin, liquid filled capsules in the elbow called bursae. Bursae are located throughout the body acting as a cushion between bone and soft tissue. The bursae rest between the pointy end of your bone and the tissues of your elbow, allowing tendons, muscles and ligaments to move across bony areas without fraying or encountering friction.

Bursitis can be caused by -

  • consistently exerting pressure on the elbow for long periods of time
  • an accident or injury that causes a hard blow to your elbow
  • bacterial infection caused by a scrape, cut, burn, puncture wound, or insect bite

Olecranon Bursa Anatomy

Septic Elbow Bursitis - If elbow bursae are infected, the elbow will typically become red, feel warm and possibly swell noticeably. If left untreated, a bacterial infection in the bursae can turn liquid to pus which can randomly open and drain; this infection can move into the bloodstream causing serious illness. If your physician believes you have an infection, they may remove some of the liquid using a needle. This will reduce swelling and help test for bacterial growth. If bacteria are the cause of your bursitis, your physician may prescribe an antibiotic medication.

Important! If you think you may have an infected bursa, (known as septic bursitis) see a physician right away - it is a very serious condition that could quickly become life-threatening.

Most cases of bursitis, however, are not septic. They are still extremely painful injuries that will seriously debilitate you if you in fact are experiencing it.

If your bursitis is not septic (your doctor will tell you whether it is or not), your doctor will opt for the safest and best plan which is conservative treatment - Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation (RICE) and possible anti-inflammatory medications to reduce swelling and provide symptom relief.

Nerve Entrapment Syndromes - Pinched nerves, also known as 'nerve entrapment' is caused when the bones, muscles, tendons, or other inner-elbow structures place pressure on small tubes surrounding a nerve. These tubes squeeze tightly around the nerve resulting in pain, limited arm mobility, and weakness in the hand, wrist or fingers. Some pinched nerves can cause a tingling or numbing sensation in your hand, forearm, or elbow. The similarity of these symptoms to those found in Tennis Elbow is why pinched nerves are easily mistaken for the same condition.

There are three main nerves in your arm that can be affected by a nerve entrapment syndromes: the medial, radial and ulnar nerve.

The specific symptoms that occur are based on which of these nerves is entrapped. Two well known nerve entrapment syndromes specifically associate with the elbow are Cubital Tunnel Syndrome (Cell Phone Elbow) and Radial Tunnel Syndrome.

Typically a pinched nerve can be treated with anti-inflammatory medications, rest, and stretching. Cold compression and BFST® therapies will reduce swelling and increase blood flow naturally. Sometimes, surgery is needed to treat nerve entrapment. If conservative treatments fail, your physician may recommend surgery as a last resort.

Bicep curls weightlift

Bicep Rupture: This is not a common injury but can occur from lifting heavy weight. The bicep attaches at your shoulder and a tendon near the elbow. If too much force is exerted on the tendon it can rip causing the bicep to rupture. You may even hear or feel tearing when this injury occurs. Symptoms can include:

  • elbow pain
  • bruising around the elbow
  • deformity in the muscle (Popeye Condition)
  • difficulty turning your forearm or rotating your hand palm up
  • noticeable weakness compared to your other arm

Bicep Rupture is almost always treated through surgery to reattach the torn tendon. The type of surgery used depends on the damage done to the tissue and the amount of time that has elapsed since injury. Postoperative treatment will include physical therapy exercises, a protective brace or splint, and conservative treatments such as the Elbow Freezie Wrap® cold compression and the Elbow Inferno Wrap® are highly applicable for reattachment post-surgeries. If you feel this is a applicable to your case, speak with your physician or physical therapist about incorporating these home treatment devices into your post-surgical rehabilitation.

An Elbow Freezie Wrap® can help manage pain and swelling from your bicep rupture or postoperative pain. Natural pain management will help you to participate in physical therapy exercises to strengthen your muscle and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (via the Elbow Inferno Wrap®) is known to increase the elasticity (flexibility) of your elbow soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments) - helping minimize chances of strain or re-injury during stretches and exercise. BFST® will also minimize post-surgery scar tissue growth and boost the healing rate.. something we talk more extensively about on our post-op page.

Your arm will need to be immobilized and protected before and after surgery. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy will increase circulation to help heal your injury even while at rest. If you want to achieve the same circulation effects that exercise produces while at rest use an Elbow Inferno Wrap® in addition to surgery to treat your Bicep Rupture.


How Do You Treat Elbow Injury?
What You Can Do!

Regardless of the condition affecting your elbow, you will find that the conservative treatments your doctor give are the best choice for natural healing. Building strong healthy tissue and allows you to regain strength in your arm, wrist and hand. Some conservative treatments include:

  • Rest - This is important for the overall healing of your elbow is resting. Do as much as possible, even this can be difficult when you have to carry on with daily activities, but resting is very important. During your recovery you will probably have to modify or avoid the activities that put stress on your elbow until your pain and inflammation settles.
  • Elbow Freezie Kit
  • Avoid Activities that Caused Your Injury - While resting your injury it's also important to avoid all activities that may have caused your tissue damage (especially any repetitive movement). Continuing on with regular activities will not only make your injury worse.
  • Apply Effective Cold Compression
    Effective Cold Compression = Treatment with a Freezie Wrap® Immediate cold (using a Freezie Wrap®) will help you to manage pain while getting rid of the pain and inflammation. Reducing inflammation can also relieve some of the pressure that's being placed on your tissue(s) and stop your injury from getting worse.
  • Use Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy - After any inflammation and/or swelling has been reduced, you can use your own blood flow to maximize healing of damaged tissue and maintain healthy blood flow to your tissue. This also boost overall long-term healing of this injury.


The Elbow Freezie Wrap® and Elbow Inferno Wrap® are home treatment medical devices that stun many of our customers with how effective they really are! Even with chronic elbow cases such as arthritis - these products cannot cure arthritis, but they sure can bring down the swelling (and pain) when it flares up. Maintaining elasticity in the joint is a major concern for arthritis sufferers, and the Elbow Inferno Wrap® will help fight atrophy (shrinking of soft tissue due to lack of movement) and strains as it is known to increase elasticity of soft tissue during and for some time after treatments. You simply won't find another product on the market that has the comfort, ease of use, and effectiveness of an Inferno Wrap®.

Your doctor has given have conservative treatments before even suggesting surgery. It is generally understood by doctors and surgeons, that surgery will introduce more scar tissue into the any already damaged tissue. This added scar tissue will be problematic, requiring more physical therapy and conservative treatment options post-surgery. If not dealt with properly, your Achilles tenosynovitis injury could end up in worse condition than before the surgery! This is why surgery is only performed as a last resort.

Step 1 - Reduce Pain & Swelling with a Freezie Wrap®
Treat yourself with effective cold compression to reduce pain and swelling.

The 1st step for conservative treatment of your elbow injury when treating conservatively or even after surgery is to reduce swelling to "open up" the area for more blood flow. Anyone in the health-care business knows that your blood supplies the oxygen and much needed nutrients required for your body to heal naturally after surgery. This is why doctors and surgeons recommend cold compression therapy within the first 72 hours of any injury and following surgery.

Cold compression therapy is recommended to reduce pain, swelling and tissue damage. Many doctors, surgeons and physical therapists consider cold compression therapy to be the gold standard for treatment of inflammation and pain. On-going cold compression treatments can reduce, or even eliminate, the need for NSAIDs or other medications that can be harmful to your body.

Cold compression therapy is known and trusted by most medical professionals. This is why for years doctors, trainers and other medical professionals have recommended RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) to treat the pain and swelling of fresh injuries, chronic pain, after any re-injury, and especially after surgery.

Treat yourself with effective cold compression to reduce pain and swelling.

Although RICE can help to treat these symptoms, ice and inferior gel packs reach temperatures so low they can cause cryoburn, an ice burn on your skin. The problem is, up until now there hasn't been any other option to treat painful conditions and injuries with effective cold compression, so ice and blue gel packs (full of antifreeze and chemicals) have been the only choice up until now.

Fortunately you no longer have to settle for these ice cold methods that are uncomfortably cold against your skin, provide short term relief, cause ice burns, and numb your skin and underlying tissue beyond feeling so you don't even notice the ice burn until it's too late. You can also get rid of those cold packs that warm up soon after you pull them out of the freezer and gel that pools around your injury putting the short-term cold everywhere except for where you need it most - on your injury!

The Freezie Wrap® is the cold compression tool you need for your post-surgical recovery to treat yourself in an effective and convenient way.

When used on any soft tissue injury, our Freezie Wraps® provide:

  • The highest-level of cold compression to quickly decrease pain, swelling, inflammation and draw the heat out of your injury.
  • A tailored wrap that conforms perfectly around your injury site.
  • Effective cold compression that's unlike any other cold compression wrap out there.
  • Cold temperatures that stay right over your elbow injury for the entire length of your treatment.
  • A home-based solution with consistent (daily) cold treatments that reduces swelling fast, decreases tissue damage after injury or surgery, and opens up the vessels in and around your injury to receive the blood flow circulation needed to heal quickly and naturally.
  • Heavier, more substantial gel packs containing a special formulation of gel - called RigiGel®.

What's RigiGel®?

RigiGel® is our trademarked name for a unique gel formula that's made out of food-grade, non-toxic material which holds the cold for an extended period of time. This specially formulated gel also features non-migrating gel technology that makes our Freezie Wrap® truly different from any other wrap available on the market.

RigiGel® is a patented formula that gives you:

RigiGel's unique gel formula offers non-migrating gel that stays put over your  injury.
  • More cooling power per pound of gel than standard cold compression wraps.
  • More gel than other wraps, meaning every time you put one on it will keep your injury cold for a longer period; pain relief is enhanced and swelling is better controlled.

Our special RigiGel® packs can be chilled in the fridge or freezer to tailor the amount of cold that you need for your elbow injury. It doesn't matter how you cool it down, because our gel packs are chock full of gel that's designed to cool down into millions of tiny snowflakes. This method of cooling means our gel packs aren't icy-cold, just perfectly cold enough to give you the most effective cold compression available.

The cushioned gel will wrap around your elbow injury and it won't budge for the entire treatment period. You'll no longer have to deal with annoying pooling around your elbow injury or have to hold a hard block of ice on your elbow!


Effective Cold Compression Therapy slows nerve and cell function - reducing the swelling that blocks blood vessels from doing their job.

 

tissue healing completely and get back to your life

This is important because once blood vessels are blocked or damaged, they can no longer carry oxygenated blood through the tissue and tissue cells begin to break-down. Without cold compression therapy cellular break-down and tissue damage continues as the cells don't 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 heal injuries faster and with less pain! This is why you need to treat your injury as soon as possible, when you notice pain / swelling / inflammation, directly after a re-injury or surgery. Applying a Freezie Wrap® right away will stop the damage immediately and unblock your blood vessels to let your body's natural blood flow in to start healing the tissue.


The Freezie Wrap® = Effective Cold Compression Therapy

 

It'll seem weird for you to read this, but there are a LOT of people out there that don't understand how fast cold compression with Freezie Wrap® can get the swelling / inflammation in your injury under control! After you get rid of the swelling for good you can start actually dealing with your injury and the healing needed.


Use a Cold Compression Freezie Wrap®:

  • 24 to 72 hours after your initial injury or when you first notice pain and swelling around your injured area to stop cellular damage, relieve pain, and decrease swelling.
  • After exercise, workouts or activity of any kind to prevent re-injury.
  • Before and after surgery during rehabilitation to control pre and post-surgery pain and swelling.
  • Anytime you feel your elbow injury is making your injury feel tender, painful or you're having a flare-up of an old injury.
  • Anytime you have swelling, sharp throbbing pain or inflammation.
  • Any other situation where you need to draw the pain and inflammation out of your tissue.
 



Step 2 - Improve Circulation, Soften Scar Tissue & Prevent Re-Injury with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy
Increase blood flow to speed up healing of your  injury.

There are a lot of people that think their injury is gone after their swelling and inflammation are gone and their injury feels better. They also make the mistake of returning to regular activities too soon without proper time for healing. The truth is that healing takes time and after the swelling is gone your injury isn't even close to being fully healed.

After the inflammation in and around your tissue has been reduced, providing extra blood flow and strengthening the tissue in and around your injury is recommended. Believe it or not, the best time for you to focus on avoiding re-injury and strengthening the weakened tissue is when the swelling's gone and your tissue has started to heal. It's vital that you don't go back to activities too soon because you might bring on a major setback in your recovery...

  • Have you recently re-injured yourself by returning to your normal daily activities too quickly?
  • How many times in the past have you aggravated yourself just trying to perform basic tasks around your house?
  • Is your injury preventing you from work or activities you love to do?

If this sounds like you - You're not alone...


Most people we deal with tell us these scenarios have happened to them many times in the past. The real challenge is how to promote blood flow to your injury site without causing further damage. This goal is even more complicated by the fact that you have to use your injury site for almost everything in everyday life.

 


What can you do to actually start healing yourself?

Increase blood flow to speed up healing.

The answer is simple. Your body can heal itself and it's the blood in your body that makes it all happen. Your blood is how everything that's good inside of you is transported directly to your injured tissue. Your blood carries oxygen, nutrients, water and antibodies right to the source of your injury and pain. Bringing proper blood flow to your injured tissue is essential for healing.

Promoting blood flow around injured tissue to help the body heal itself is a concept that's been used for centuries. Oxygen and nutrients, carried in your own blood, are critical for the body to heal itself. Without proper blood flow, recovering from your injury will be delayed... Sometimes for a very long period of time.

Even though the concept is simple, improving blood flow to your tissue can be difficult, when an injury occurs. Traditional methods require you to move your sore/stiff injury site in order to promote blood flow. This same motion that promotes blood flow can also make your pain and injury much worse. Relying on movement alone to increase blood flow puts you in danger of re-injuring yourself.

So what do you do when you need to increase blood flow, but you can't move your without re-injuring your tissue?


This is where the Inferno Wrap® and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) come in!

 

Using Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®), will help with your recovery and heal your tissue more completely. BFST® increases the amount of blood that flows naturally to your soft tissue to nourish your tissue, improving elasticity and speeding the healing process. This increased Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy to your damaged tissue is greatly needed to complete your healing and avoid re-injury once and for all.

The only way to get BFST® is through use of a Inferno Wrap®.

When should you use hot or cold for injuries?

The Inferno Wrap® is the only treatment method that improves blood flow and circulation on a deep tissue level. Other methods of warming / heating tissue (hot water bottles, hot baths, etc) will only ever increase blood flow on a surface / skin level. These methods need a LOT of time to even reach your damaged tendon on a deep tissue level. And even if you were to use them this long your skin would heat up to an uncomfortable level and it may even burn you.

The best source of heat treatment is from a product where you don't even feel that much heat. When you don't feel the heat, it means the therapy is working in your deep soft tissue which is really where you need it. It's kind of like how your heart works in your body. You can't "feel" your heart pumping blood all around your body to your arms and legs. You can't even hear your own heartbeat without listening very closely. This is exactly how deep tissue BFST® works too!

You're not supposed to "feel" a lot of heat because the heat isn't treating your skin, it's treating your tissue, increasing the blood flow right where your injury is!

  • When treating any soft tissue injury, an effective therapy will increase blood flow to the injury while your injury site is immobile.
  • This increase in blood flow will accelerate the body's own ability to heal itself.
  • The Inferno Wrap® is the most highly effective blood flow stimulation device that you'll find on the market that is approved by the FDA for use in the home or hospital.

Regular treatments with a Inferno Wrap® can reduce pain and stiffness from scar tissue and increase overall flexibility in your tissue. Increased blood flow will whisk away damaged tissue, toxins, and any bacteria in or around your injured tissue to promote more effective healing. Getting rid of toxins will allow all of the positive healing processes to start in your injury. Increasing blood flow will also increase the amount of oxygen that's being sent to your injured tissue AND boost your tissue's ability to absorb oxygen. (reference: 1)


How Does the Inferno Wrap® Promote BFST®?

Electromagnetic energy increases blood flow on a deep tissue level.

Every Inferno Wrap® contains a patented Energy Web® that's flexible and shaped to conform around your injury site. The Energy Web® provides a uniform wave of healing electromagnetic energy over the entire treatment area. This energy travels deep inside your soft tissue to stimulate blood flow on the deep tissue level where it's needed to heal your injury. It's the electromagnetic energy provided provided by our Inferno Wraps® that's crucial to the healing process.

Electromagnetic energy is the only way to get your blood flow moving on a deep tissue level for these reasons:

  • Electromagnetic energy waves are not heat waves.

  • When emitted from the Inferno Wrap®, electromagnetic energy waves penetrate right through your skin and fat layers until they get to your damaged tissue.
  • Once these energy waves reach your injured tissue(s), they're absorbed and quickly converted into heat energy right at the location of your injury.
  • The idea of electromagnetic energy waves is slowly catching on in North American, but the truth is, it's a technology that's been used for decades.
Electromagnetic energy has been studied by researchers for decades.

Many people just don't know that over the past 30 years, researchers in Japan and China have completed extensive studies on the usoe of electromagnetic energy for healing and their findings have been impressive. Success has been reported in studies from countries like Sweden and Germany. Research is continuing and soon, much of North American will know what the Far East and Europe has known for a long time...

Electromagnetic energy provides a wide range of health benefits for many other soft tissue injuries.

Regular treatment with the electromagnetic energy in our Inferno Wraps® will ensure:

  • Your pain will be reduced.
  • Your injured tissue will heal at an accelerated rate with reduced potential for re-injury.
  • Your knee will have a larger range of motion and increased extensibility of collagen tissue in your joint and around your meniscus. (Chapter 9 of "Therapeutic Heat and Cold", 4th edition. (amazon.com link - Ed. Justus F. Lehmann, M.D., Williams, and Wilkin)


Electromagnetic Energy = Increased Blood Flow = More Oxygen, More Nutrients and Less Toxins = Faster Healing

 

Our Inferno Wraps® are uniquely patented designs that are better than other alternatives out there for more than just the electromagnetic energy they provide! Our wraps are made from medical-grade material - this should be as important to you as it is to us. Other products that are sold in stores are considered "consumer goods" meaning the material only needs to be as good as a sweater that you wear. Clothing articles like this don't need to meet high standards of production or materials and may include materials that irritate your skin.

Since our wraps are medical-grade products registered with the FDA, they are of a higher quality and need to meet way more standards for manufacturing (ISO 10993 - biocompatibility testing). This makes our wraps the safest product to increase blood flow circulation.

Our manufacturer has spent years perfecting the wrap design to make sure you get the treatment you deserve!


Use A BFST® Inferno Wrap®:

  • After swelling and inflammation have been reduced with cold compression.
  • Before exercise or workouts to warm up your injury site to prevent re-injury.
  • Before and after surgery, during rehabilitation, to warm up before physical therapy exercising or stretching.
  • Anytime you feel your tissue has stiffened up, is tight and your mobility is reduced causing you more pain.
  • Anytime you have sore or aching tissue in and around your injury site.
  • Any other situation where you need to increase blood flow to your tissue to relax your soft tissue, relieve pain, prevent re-injury and enhance flexibility of your tissue.

Tennis Elbow Injury Facts:

Tennis Elbow is a common name used for an acute form of tendonitis in the tendon fibers that attach the forearm muscles to the elbow.


Overuse injuries of the elbow are commonly associated with athletes however, overuse injuries are most common in occupational areas.


Symptoms of epicondylitis include pain, swelling, bruising and tenderness. Other symptoms may also include hand numbness or hand weakness.


Only 5% of people diagnosed with Tennis Elbow actually play tennis.


Cell Phone Elbow (a.k.a Cupital Tunnel Syndrome) can develop from excessive cell phone use where the ulna nerve is stretched for a long period of time.

This restricts the blood flow to the elbow and can cause the nerves to become weakened and scarred. If you feel pain or numbness in the hand (in particular the pinky and ring fingers) whilst using a cell phone, change hands or use a bluetooth.


Elbow injuries can be secondary to an injury elsewhere in the body. The elbow injury may be caused by the body compensating for an injury to the neck, shoulder or wrist.

Dear MendMeShop,

After more than a year of pain in my left arm I was at my wit's end! I was tired of taking pain pills every time I exerted myself. My doctor had prescribed anti-inflammatory drugs and a brace for my elbow, but after a year, and numerous visits to the doctor, it kept getting worse. Then my wife found the Inferno Wrap. I was leery and I told her so. She said - well it will cost you $150.00 to visit the doctor again and it hasn't helped yet, so why not give it a try?" She ordered it and the first couple of times I used it my elbow hurt a bit more than before, but after a week, I began to see some improvement. By 3 months it was much better, and today it doesn't bother me at all. I recommended it to my doctor on my next visit! Now I tell everyone to get one! My wife and I both use it now (as she recently injured her elbow). Getting old is not fun, but the Inferno Wrap definitely works and definitely helps! I highly recommend it!

Dear MendMeShop,

I just wanted to let you know that your Inferno and Freezie products worked very well for my elbow problem. It did take more time than the initial warranty so I appreciate your company extending this time period. Your communication via email and telephone, explaining the correct procedure for the use of your products, were key. This allowed me to see that I was not using them exactly as I should and it made a big difference. I used them to the letter and today my elbow pain is gone - completely. I was ready to go to a surgeon so this was a much better alternative. Continue the good work!

Dear MendMeShop,

I'm doing well with my Inferno Wraps. I have one for my foot, leg, back, and elbow. My elbow IS gradually getting better. The foot/ankle/Achilles, leg, and back/hip are helping a lot. I have a complex soft tissue injury from a fall where my foot was asleep and I did not know it ... UNTIL I fell on the floor, having twisted (running on my foot that turned over) my ankle, knee, and hip. I have healed well from the original injury (now 4 years ago) with lots of chiropractic and massage therapy and lots of rehab. One of my rehabs now is "Ballroom Dancing" with a teacher who understands injuries. I call it "Physio-dance therapy for rehabilitation." I've done this for the last 8 months and have gotten incredibly stronger and improved coordination and balance. But, 3 weeks ago I "strained" my Achilles/calf/ankle/foot muscles and tendons. I purchased the Inferno Wraps to help expedite my healing, which they HAVE DONE and I've only used them 2 weeks now. I am using them 2 times per day, every day.
