More Tennis Elbow Injury Facts:

Continually 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. The T•Shellz Wrap is a very effective treatment device to aid in scar tissue breakdown of epicondylitis.


To heal as fast as possible:

  • Rest
  • Use a Cold Compress or Ice Pack to reduce pain, swelling.
  • Use T•Shellz 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 T•Shellz Wrap. (stretching=good, straining=bad)


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

Elbow Injuries


elbow pain 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 develop a treatment plan for you that includes conservative treatment methods such as:

  • Rest - This is important for initial healing to reduce pain, swelling and inflammation in the early stage of your elbow injury. Too much rest can also be harmful to elbow injuries because joint immobility can actually cause stiffening in the elbow (and even shoulder) joint. This is why rest should be used when reducing initial pain and swelling, but should not be considered for more long-term conservative treatment.
  • Avoid Activities that Caused Your Injury - While resting your elbow, it's important to avoid activities that may have caused your injury in the first place and this definitely includes pretty much any type of sport where your upper body is involved. Continuing on with regular activities will not only make your injury worse, but trying to 'work around' your injury will eventually give rise to over-compensation injuries in other areas of your body.
  • Use a Cold Compress or Ice Pack - Cold is very effective at reducing pain and inflammation - use at the onset of the injury and during flareups.
  • Use Deep Tissue Regeneration Therapy (DTR Therapy) - You can use your own blood flow to maximize your rehabilitation, maintain healthy blood flow to your arm and elbow, decrease recovery time, and boost overall long-term healing. Promoting blood flow to your elbow joint will help to minimize the growth of scar tissue, increase flexibility and helping prevent atrophy.
  • Physical Therapy - Surgery is usually the last resort. This means doctors or surgeons typically won't perform a surgery until they feel that their patient has put effort into treating their injury with conservative treatment methods. This includes 4 to 6 months of physical therapy. If you haven't experienced any improvement in your condition during that time then surgery may be considered. Agressive physical therapy approaches will focus on forced or manual manipulation of your elbow joint - this means your physical therapists will be trying to move your elbow past the point of comfort as they strive to increase range of motion and prevent further atrophy. This can be painful and end up making your injury worse if not done correctly. (reference: 1)
  • Stretching - Stretching your elbow and arm in physical therapy and at home will help you to regain your range of motion much faster than not stretching at all. Stretching in many ways is key maintaining good Range of Motion (ROM) in the elbow, and stretching can be made much easier with use of a TShellz Wrap before to warm up soft tissue, and a Cold Compress or Ice Pack treatment after to prevent any return of swelling and inflammation.

Unless you have a major tear or rupture, your doctor will prescribe conservative treatments for your elbow 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 and this added scar tissue is problematic. Scar tissue requires significant physical therapy and conservative treatment options post-surgery and outcomes can often be less than what you might hope for. 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.


What Is Wrong With My Elbow?


golfers-elbow-tendinosis-pain-pattern

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. A Cold Compress or Ice Pack will reduce swelling, but overuse will lead to restricted blood flow which is not conducive to healing. So, once swelling is reduced, start treatments with the Elbow T•Shellz Wrap. The T•Shellz Wrap will instill a deep heat in the elbow, stimulating circulation of blood in the area and boosting the healing rate of soft tissue in the localized area. If conservative treatment fails, sometimes arthroscopic surgery is necessary to remove cartilage or bone pieces and smooth cartilage surfaces.


Elbow Arthritis

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.

As you probably know, when it comes to arthritis - the only real cure is surgery. However, we do offer a protocol that most of our clients have used to manage their arthritis symptoms very effectively. First, if there is swelling, get the swelling down through the use of a Cold Compress or Ice Pack on your elbow. After the swelling is down, treat yourself with the Elbow T•Shellz Wrap after getting out of bed, in the middle of the day and before you go to bed at night.

In Between Treatments With T•Shellz Wrap, Apply Our New Fast Acting Pain Relief Cream Called ARNICA INFUSION

Elbow TShellz Wrap boost healing

Dealing with aches and pains affecting the foot, ankle, leg, knee, hamstring, hip, back, arm, shoulder, elbow, wrist, or hand? If so, then applying the Arnica Infusion to any of these targeted areas will bring about fast relief from the pain and sore tissues. Simply apply a small amount of cream to the body and moments later, you will experience a soothing and comforting sensation over the area.

Arnica Infusion is specially designed to relieve pain due to sore muscles and joints associated with arthritis, backaches, sprains, strains, and bruises. No matter if you are dealing with an acute injury, chronic pain, or a general "flare-up" - you will experience fast relief from pain and inflammation.

This is a product that many of our current MendMeShop customers asked us to develop. So we focused our time and resources over the past few years and came up, with we believe, will be one of more effective, fast acting, topical pain relief creams on the market.

You are likely familiar with some of the standard topical agents on the market as most of our customers use them. The are mass marketed and even found in most department stores now.

Well, we are here to say that Arnica Infusion goes many steps beyond what they offer.

Each application of Arnica Infusion feels so comforting and soothing, we are certain it will become an item you will not want to live without.

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.

If your arthritic elbow condition becomes too much to bear, your physician may advise surgery to deal with your arthritic joint. In cases such as this, know that the Elbow T•Shellz Wrap is a fantastic rehabilitation tool 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.

Bursitis

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

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 Deep Tissue Rehab 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 Rupture

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. Know that the use of an Elbow T•Shellz Wrap is highly applicable for reattachment post-surgeries as this treatment stimulates healing and growth while improving elasticity and flexibility of soft tissue. This is explained further in the Post Surgery Rehabilitation & Healing section here.


Elbow Injuries Not Only Affect the Elbow- But Can Lead to Other Conditions and Injuries.

Every time we use our injured elbow, damaged and swollen tendons and muscle tissue move; when they are inflamed, every movement hurts. With injured tissue, pain happens - sometimes a LOT of pain, so we try not to move it. So, when doing something we need to use our elbow for (getting dressed, driving, talking on the phone), we start to use the shoulder and even the neck more. If we can, we use our other elbow instead, even though it is inconvenient and usually the non-dominant elbow.

tennis-elbow-pain-pattern-extensors

A couple days later (after purposefully avoiding movement of our elbow), the pain has gone down (as well as the swelling) and this is where the trouble begins! The pain disappeared with the swelling but we still aren't fully healed! Not knowing this, we start using our elbow normally again and then the pain shows up again like it did before - all because the injury wasn't fully healed in the first place.

Eventually, we use the other elbow more and more - or even use our shoulder and neck instead of our elbow for a lengthy period of time. This is why these other areas start to hurt - they are being overused now. Soon, aches and pain can become commonplace in the upper body - all as a result of the original elbow injury and the body's instinctive nature to "protect" the orginal elbow injury - all because the injury wasn't fully healed in the first place!

We continually re-injure the elbow epicondylitis through our daily activities and now this injury has become a chronic elbow injury.

overcompensation-injury-prevention-and-rehabilitation

Muscle imbalances result, placing tension on bone and softer tissues - leading to a misalignment within the upper body. The extra stress on the opposite side of the body will also result in weakness and fatigue of the tissues - increasing the chances they can eventually be injured or gradually degenerate. This is a textbook example of how you get an overcompensation injury. In some cases, physical therapists warn that overcompensation can be very dangerous as it will affect gait or alignment on a permanent basis.

An injury to one elbow can easily lead to straining in other areas, making an overall recovery hard to initiate. For example, a serious muscle strain in the right elbow can often lead to over-straining of the left elbow. Most commonly, the injury occurs on the dominant side, so the risk of straining the other (weaker) side increases. The longer the injury (and corresponding pain) persists, the greater the chance that you will sustain more strain from overcompensation, eventually leading to issues in those areas as well. To minimize potential secondary injuries, know that it is important to deal with your elbow injury quickly and completely.

Truly, chronic elbow injuries can become a vicious cycle - which is why it is absolutely critical to focus on healing methods designed to rebuild and strengthen the injured tissues in a timely manner. The faster you truly heal, the less chance you have of sinking into a downward spiral of re-injury, scar tissue growth and overcompensation injuries.



Okay, So I Have an Elbow Injury...What Should I Do Now?

Stage 1: If the elbow injury is very recent - use a good quality cold pack and Arnica Pain Relief Cream.

Note: If you are suffering from a soft tissue injury that has been going on for awhile, then skip the cold treatment as inflammation will be minimal. Anytime you are experiencing significant pain, you may find our Arnica Infusion Pain Relief Cream to be quite helpful.

golfers-elbow-tendinosis-pain-pattern

If you are experiencing pain and swelling in the very early stages of the injury (first 48 to 72 hours), the first step in a conservative treatment protocol would be to focus on reducing the discomfort by applying a quality cold pack to the injured elbow, then a high quality pain relief cream such as our Arnica Infusion Cream (after the cold pack treatment).

Not only will you use your cold pack for the first 48 to 72 hours after the injury, but you should also use it during other stages of the healing process. Some examples include...

  • after any activity that stresses the elbow in a moderate way. It is wise to quickly apply cold therapy to not only reduce the pain, but to also minimize tissue damage that may have occurred during the prior event.
  • If you have a job that requires you to place some demands on your injured elbow. If that is the case, use cold therapy immediately following work and if the opportunity allows - use it for 15 to 20 minutes during lunch or another break time.
  • If you are in a post-operative situation where cold compression therapy would be utilized heavily for at least the first few weeks following the procedure. Similarly, if you are scheduled for upcoming surgery, then you will need a high quality cold therapy device to use.

Having a Cold Compress or Ice Pack available at home to use if and when the need arises is helpful. Many of you already do so.

However, too many people over-focus on cold therapy while ignoring the most critical aspect to healing - nourishing the injured tissues with a healthy supply of blood flow needed to repair and rebuild the injured tissues.

This leads to the most important recommendation...

Stage 2: Focus on Increasing Blood Flow To The Injured Tissue - As This is The ONLY Way It Will Heal For the Long-Term

Even though the concept is simple, improving blood flow to injured tissues can be difficult. When the injury is elbow related, the challenges are even greater. Traditional methods require your muscle to move to promote blood flow (exercise), but that same motion that promotes blood flow can at times lead to making your pain and condition worse.

  • Have you reinjured your elbow by returning to work too quickly?
  • How many times in the past have you aggravated your elbow just trying to perform basic tasks around the home?
  • Is your debilitated elbow preventing you from work or activities you love to do?

Most people we deal with tell us these scenarios have happened to them many times in the past. Perhaps it has already happened to you.

Promoting blood flow within a muscle or soft tissue injury to help the body heal itself is a concept that has been utilized for centuries. This is where the focus has to be if you are seeking long-term improvement.

Oxygen and nutrients, carried within the blood, are critical for the body to heal itself. Without proper blood flow, recovering from an injury or condition will be delayed...sometimes for a very long period of time.

The real challenge is how do you promote blood flow to the elbow injury site without causing further injury? This goal is further complicated by the fact the elbow (and muscles controlling the elbow joint) are involved in the majority of the physical movements we perform each day.

When people think blood flow beyond exercise, they instantly think "heating pad". Unfortunately, many individuals make the mistake in believing that a simple heating pad or microwavable gel packs will provide the blood flow needed to heal injured tissues. Nothing could be further from the truth.

how electromagnetic energy heats deep tissue

To begin with, heating pads and warmed gel packs work on conduction. The heat they generate has to be forced through multiple layers of skin and fatty tissues. With each layer of skin the heat passes through, there is a corresponding energy loss because that heat is absorbing into each layer it passes through- the skin is an excellent insulator! Your body responds to this heat by increasing the blood flow near your skins surface (not in your injured tissue) to dissipate the heat and it does so quite effectively.

By the time what little heat reaches below the skin, sub-dermal layer and fat layer into the targeted area (the dense, injured tissues), very little energy remains and this does not effectively enhance blood flow. With little blood flow reaching these injured tissues - healing just doesn't happen.

The heating pad may feel comforting when on the body, but that is because the warmth is absorbing into the skin. Moist heat has been believed to be more effective at warming internal tissues versus dry heat, because it is believed that water transfers heat more quickly than through air. Clinical studies do not support that popular belief.

When you are using a heating pad, all that you are really accomplishing is warming of the skin. The unintended consequence is that you draw blood flow AWAY from the targeted tissues (the injured ones deeper in the body) and direct the blood flow to the surface of the body.

Warming the skin will not significantly contribute to healing of muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, or any other tissues.

 

So If A Heating Pad Is Not The Answer, What Is?

In order to effectively stimulate blood flow to the dense tissue deep within the body, an energy based on an electromagnetic principal (diathermy) is needed. In essence, this is a conversion energy vs a conductive heat (like the heating pad example above - that is conductive heat).

Electromagnetic energy waves are not conductive heat waves - they are a much longer wavelength and hence, penetrate deep into the body. They are very safe and very effective as research over decades has shown. The F.D.A recognizes this as fact.

When these energy waves are emitted,they penetrate right through your skin and fat layers until they are absorbed by tissue high in protein. This means ligaments, muscles, cartilage, tendons and bone. Once they reach the targeted areas, they are absorbed and quickly converted into thermal energy... right at the location of the injury.

This results in relaxation of the vessel walls. The vessels then gently expand, allowing for more nutrient rich blood flow along with extra oxygen and antibodies to reach the damaged tissues. Plus, the enhanced blood flow helps in flushing cell waste and fluid build-up from the injury site - further enhancing the ability of the body to heal.

electromagnetic energy deep tissue repair tshellz

As mentioned above, standard heating pads and heated gel packs accomplish the exact opposite of your goals. They direct blood flow to the skin, not to the injured muscles and soft tissues you are trying to heal.

Electromagnetic energy is a form of energy will easily penetrate through clothing, skin, and fatty tissues... directly into your injured muscles and soft tissues within the elbow. After the energy absorbs into soft tissue around the elbow (tendons,muscles,ligaments), the metabolic response then kick starts the repair and rebuilding process.

More blood now begins to flow effectively to the injured tissues deep within the body. The injured tissue needs the extra blood flow to heal as it is through the blood the body carries the oxygen, nutrients, and antibodies needed for proper and long-term healing.

While the concept of electromagnetic energy is slowly catching on in North America, the truth is, it is a technology that has been utilized in other societies for decades. Over the past 30 years, researchers in Japan and China have completed extensive studies on the use of the modality and their findings have been impressive. In addition, success has been reported in studies from countries such as Sweden and Germany.

Research is continuing and soon, much of North America will know what the Far East and Europe has known for a long time; electromagnetic energy provides a wide range of health benefits for those not only suffering from tendon injuries, but for many other ailments (plantar fasciitis, bursitis, tenosynovitis, frozen shoulder, rotator cuff damage, muscle strain, etc.) as well.

Now, on to recommendation number two in the journey to heal your injured elbow...

The Elbow T•Shellz Wrap - Heal Your Elbow For The Long Term

The best option we came across in our research to accomplish true healing of elbow injuries is the Elbow T•Shellz Wrap. Use of this device results in a dramatic increase in blood flow to the injured tissues located deeper within the body - all in a non-invasive manner.

Using a T•Shellz Wrap will not expose you to the risk of causing further harm to soft tissue like you can when using rigorous exercise. The Elbow T•Shellz Wrap accomplishes the goal of enhanced blood flow without the need for intensive exercise and as such reduces your risk of re-injury.

T•Shellz Wrap = Accelerated Healing Power for Your Elbow Injury

electromagnetic elbow deep tissue repair

The Elbow T•Shellz Wrap is based on the scientifically validated principal of Electromagnetic energy as we discussed previously. This form of treatment is safe and effective as shown in numerous studies which can be referenced through the National Library of Medicine. Professional athletes and those in the medical field have been users of the technology for decades - it really hasn't been until recently that companies like ours introduced the treatment devices to the home user.

The healing energy from the T•Shellz Wrap does not absorb into the skin - it absorbs directly into the damaged muscle and soft tissue (as a result, you will not feel the same level of heat on the skin versus a heating pad). The longer wavelength provides the electromagnetic energy wrap with the capability of penetrating deep into the body (well over two and a half inches).

EM energy emitted from the T•Shellz Wrap is absorbed by high protein tissue (muscle, tendon, ligament, cartilage) and is converted into Kinetic energy - much of this energy being released as heat. Overall, EM energy will warm soft tissues, improve blood circulation, and boost metabolism and enzyme activity. In stimulating localized blood flow to damaged soft tissue, you provide needed oxygen, nutrients, and antibodies to regenerate new, healthy collagen. In addition, you will experience a clearing of toxins and excess fluid build up from the injury site. Over the intermediate term, this helps to reduce incidents of swelling as trapped fluids will be whisked away - reducing pressure on blood vessels.

Using the T-Shell Wrap is truly a unique experience. Within moments of applying a treatment to your injured elbow, you can feel the healing sensation due to the increase in blood flow deep within the area. During a treatment, and for quite some time after you finish, the treated area will feel relaxed and less painful. It's a very soothing sensation and extremely effective.


Who Should Use the T•Shellz Wrap

We recommend the use of a T•Shellz Wrap:

  • If you have injured tendons, muscle or any soft tissue in your elbow, then the T•Shellz Wrap will accelerate your healing.
  • If you are dealing with conditions affecting your range of motion such as tendinosis, tenosynovitis, or even arthritis.
  • If you have a chronic elbow condition that has lasted for years- this device will help start the rebuilding process and help strengthen the surrounding and supporting tissues. Many of our past clients had suffered for years, then were completely amazed at the results only after a few months of treatments.
  • If you are still working with an injured elbow, the T•Shellz Wrap will help relax injured soft tissue prior to work and after a day at the job.
  • If you are still trying to enjoy your favorite activities such as gardening, tennis, golf, etc - use the T•Shellz Wrap prior to activity to help reduce chances of re-injuring or re-aggravating those targeted tissues.
  • If you are suffering from bursitis in your elbow and want to treat the major source of it (secondary damage to the muscle and tendon surrounding the bursa sac). Through overuse or degenerative changes in the elbow, the muscle and tendons surrounding the bursa sacs will tighten and constrict. When they do, they place pressure on the bursa, causing it to become irritated. Applying a soothing and deep penetrating energy to the elbow relaxes the tissues and takes the pressure off the bursa.
  • If you are experiencing atrophy in your elbow and want to reduce the chance of re-injury - this is a perfect treatment to use on a regular basis.
  • If you have had stem cell, PRP or prolotherapy treatments and your physician told you to get a radiant energy wrap, then this is exactly what you need.
  • If you have injured your elbow and need surgery, then this is exactly what you need after your surgery to help the surgically repaired tissues rebuild for long-term health.(once the surgery wound has healed)
  • If you are experiencing atrophy in your elbow and want to reduce the chance of re-injury while stretching - this is a perfect treatment to use every time before you stretch.

Increased Blood Circulation = Increased Healing Rate

 

T•Shellz Wraps contain a unique Carbon Fiber Energy Pad which is flexible and will shape to conform to your body. This Energy Pad emits a uniform wave of perfectly safe electromagnetic energy over its entire surface. This energy travels deep inside to the soft tissue in your elbow and arm, stimulating blood flow your own body needs to heal your injury. It is the electromagnetic energy that is crucial to the healing process.


Best of all...

The Elbow T•Shellz Wrap is an FDA Registered Medical Device and is suitable for use in therapeutic clinics and FROM HOME. It is completely safe for people and patients to use for themselves.

As mentioned earlier, the use of electromagnetic energy is becoming much more commonplace in North America for everyday people. The technology has been used for decades in the worlds of professional and amateur - a contributing factor as to why athletes seem to recover from injuries so quickly.

Have you ever wondered by an athlete can return to activity after 3 or 4 weeks following a severe elbow injury - while your average person takes much longer to return back to normal? The secret isn't really that much of a secret - it involves consistent treatments (meaning multiple times a day) using a diathermy treatment like the T•Shellz Wrap to stimulate blood flow to the injured tissues. Most athletes have the luxury of using in-house therapy facilities many times per day.

How many us can afford the time and money to visit a therapy clinic multiple times a day? Very few indeed. This is how you can gain the same advantage that athletes enjoy in healing their own injuries - by using a device like the Elbow T•Shellz Wrap two or three times a day on a consistent basis.

Consistent Treatments = Consistent And Long Term Improvement

 

What Else Makes the Elbow T•Shellz Wrap So Special?

We believe the T•Shellz Wrap to be one of the most effective treatments to stimulate blood flow to dense, injured tissues such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other similar tissues.

We can promise that you will receive a product that is designed to be safe and does what it is supposed to do...quickly relieve pain and aid in the recovery from tendon, muscle and other soft tissue injuries.

The unit plugs into a standard wall outlet to get its power. The nice thing about the power supply is that the same unit can be used in North America and overseas as well. It has the capability to operate between 110v and 230v.

It has a special signal controller that can be set for 3 different power levels of application (3=High, 2=Medium, 1=Low). The cord is long so you can sit or lie comfortably and watch TV, read or surf the net while you're using it.

Treatments are max 30 minutes in duration and the device can be worn over clothing. This allows you to use the device at work, at home, or really anywhere you have access to an electrical outlet.

When Should I Use My TShellz Wrap During the Day?

The most common question we receive from individuals prior to purchasing is - how many times a day should I be using my elbow wraps and when should I be using them? While treatment plans will differ for each individual and their specific injury, there are general guidelines that should be adhered to.

  • Use a Cold Compress or Ice Pack when you are experiencing inflammation (usually after exertion or movement of the injury area).

The Elbow T•Shellz Wrap would then be used:

  • Right after rising from bed in the morning (as this is when it is most stiff)
  • Prior to going to bed at night (to relax the arm, allowing for better sleep)
  • Before you know you will be using your injured joint (going to work, driving, typing, etc).

Stage 3 - In Between Treatments With T•Shellz Wrap, Apply Our New Fast Acting Pain Relief Cream Called ARNICA INFUSION

Made in the USA at an FDA registered manufacturing facility, you can be assured that Arnica Infusion is both safe and effective. We only source top grade ingredients while implementing strict quality control checks during every step of the production process. Expect the same high quality that MendMeShop customers have been accustomed to since we started the company in 2005.

The "Cool Blue" formula is the perfect balance between the smooth application of a cream and the effective absorbing factor of a gel. It is not too thick and not too thin - just the right texture. Best of all, it feels very nice on the skin!

Each application of Arnica Infusion feels so comforting and soothing, we are certain it will become an item you will not want to live without.

Arnica Infusion Ingredients

The Arnica Infusion formula is based on a combination of scientific research and the use of high quality ingredients. The properties within the formula were chosen for their pain relief, anti-inflammatory, and soothing qualities.

The acting ingredients within the formula include ones many of us are familiar with; along with ones that have not received a lot of publicity (only in research circles). Extensive testing resulted in a blending of ingredients that provides the most synergistic of benefits.

The notable ingredients in the Arnica Infusion formula include:

  • Arnica - powerful anti-inflammatory, speeds recovery, enhances circulation
  • Menthol - provides deep penetrating pain relief with a nice cooling sensation
  • Vitamin B6 - promotes normal nerve function
  • MSM - supports healthy connective tissues, anti-inflammatory
  • Ilex Leaf Extract - increases circulation, skin conditioner
  • Vitamin E - anti-inflammatory, enhances circulation, hydrates the skin
  • Aloe - anti-inflammatory properties, soothes the skin
  • Tea Tree - enhances penetration of ingredients

Extensive quality control procedures during the manufacturing process ensure the ingredients and final product are both safe and effective. We would not stake our reputation on anything but the best.

When Do I Apply the Arnica Infusion?

While At Work

Apply Arnica Infusion at work to help reduce acute discomfort associated with overuse of muscles and joints. No matter if you are in a physical demanding job or work within an office environment, you will be placing stress on different parts of the body and aches and pains will result.

Before Or After Work, Sports, & Activity

If you suffer from a sprained ligament, pulled muscle, strained tendon, or even bruising - apply Arnica Infusion for quick relief of the pain.

Chronic Pain Suffering

Application of Arnica Infusion can be done up to a maximum of 4 times per day on a consistent basis to help bring about relief from various pains and aches.

In-between Treatments With the T•Shellz Wraps

Follow up your T-Shellz and Cold treatments with an application of Arnica Infusion. Combine the pain relieving benefits of Arnica Infusion along with the healing benefits of the wraps to make your recovery go much more smoothly.

Do not apply Arnica Infusion within a 2 hour timespan before a T•Shellz Wrap treatment.

Whether you decide to use the Arnica Infusion in conjunction with the T-Shell and other treatments - or if you decide to use the cream as a stand-alone product - you will not be disappointed with the results. We guarantee it.

A Note On OverCompensation

Since you are reading this, you probably know that serious elbow tendinosis injuries do not just disappear. Over time, they usually wreak havoc on your shoulder & wrist due to lack of movement and over-compensation. It will also wreak havoc on your opposite elbow due to overcompensation. Recovery takes a longer time for such chronic (long term) injuries, but proper healing is essential to regain strength and get you back to the activities you enjoy.

The longer your injury endures, the greater the risk of running into serious overcompensation injuries.

To Stop Re-Injury & Reduce the Risk of a More Serious Overcompensation Injury, You Need to Heal Quickly & Completely!

Anyone in need of rapid recovery and complete healing must consider a comprehensive treatment plan that includes an effective means to minimize swelling and inflammation yet also stimulate healing and tissue elasticity. We have found no better set of tools that can be used at home than this:

What You Definitely Need to Successfully Treat
& Heal Your Elbow Tendon Injury at Home:

  • An Exercise & Stretching Plan to prevent muscle atrophy and shortened tendons. A proper plan will increase elasticity and strengthen the muscles of the wrist, forearm, elbow, upper arm and shoulder of the injured arm.

Conservative treatment tools just like these have been used successfully by thousands of tendinosis injury sufferers - just like you.

Our Devices Are Not Only Used To Help Heal Active Injuries - They Can Also Be Used Post-Operative to Accelerate Healing

Doctors and Surgeons are always improving the techniques used in surgery, and results from surgery now are much more positive than they were in the past. However, all surgeries introduce scar tissue, and recovery from elbow surgery can be less than ideal and take longer than anticipated.

If you do wind up getting surgery, know that rehabilitation at-home while attending regular physical therapy or doctor appointments is vital for your overall recovery.

elbow T•Shellz Wrap

Consistent exercise and conservative treatment on a daily basis during your rehabilitation while working with your doctor or physical therapist is key. This is why you should seriously consider maximizing your recovery by using the T•Shellz Wrap at home once you are approved for physical therapy.

The more consistent you work at enhancing blood flow to surgically repaired soft tissue, the more consistent the healing process will be. Nourishing the tissues will more oxygen and nutrients (which are carried through the blood stream) will give the body a better ability to produce new, healthy collagen. In effect, you will help the body produce stronger tissues while potentially reducing the number of setbacks that can occur following surgical procedures.

The Key Point To Keep in Mind When Treating Your Elbow Injury

Make Sure That Complete Healing is Your #1 Goal

tendinosis-chronic-elbow

We all know that if the injury was healed, the pain would go away but what about the opposite situation? If the pain is gone, does that mean the injury is better? Unfortunately, this is not always true.

Too many people only focus on suppressing pain symptoms while providing less attention to the true healing aspects of the body. Experiencing less pain, while obviously a good short-term goal, never equates to underlying healing. Scar tissue can remain for months after one gets to a point of being relatively pain-free. However, as long the weak and brittle scar tissue remains, you are susceptible to re-injury or re-aggravation. Certain motions or movements can cause the weaker tissue to easily tear - resulting in some reversal of the recovery up until that point.

This is why we recommend for people to continue with their doctor or therapist recommended exercises and to continue with mild treatments of the T•Shellz Wrap for a period of time - to better ensure complete healing.

Ongoing treatments to enhance circulation will soothe, relax and promote healing of your damaged elbow muscles and tendons. Elbow T•Shellz treatments will also allow your soft tissue to extend further due to the deep warming sensation created by the enhanced circulation to the treatment area. The more extensibile your tissues are, the less likely they are to strain or sprain.

The Elbow T•Shellz Wrap is a highly effective therapy tool for people suffering from elbow, forearm, upper arm or general elbow injuries - such as muscle tears, tendon tears, strains, tendonitis, tendinopathy, tendinosis, impingements, elbow bursitis, and any pain associated with trigger points, scar tissue, and arthritis in the arm, elbow or forearm.

Are you still unsure about placing an order? let me address some questions that may causing some hesitation...

What is the success rate of the Elbow T•Shellz Wraps? Do they really work?

The short answer is - yes, the T•Shellz Wraps are very effective at healing muscle and soft tissue injuries. We try and keep in touch with a large percentage of our customers, and we encourage them to do the same. In doing so, we have received a lot of feedback as we have sold Electromagnetic Devices since 2008.

We can say that the return rate on our products is only around 5% any given month. That is exceptional by anyone's standards. Therefore, we can safely indicate that the overwhelming majority of people who purchase from us do achieve benefits with our products.

What is the difference between the T•Shellz Wrap and a standard heating pad?

The differences between the T•Shellz Wrap and heating pads, moist gel packs, etc - is a night and day comparison. There is nothing that compares to the healing capacity of the T•Shellz technology.

To begin with, heating pads and the like work on conduction. The heat has to be forced through multiple layers of skin and fatty tissues. With each layer of skin the heat passes through, there is a corresponding energy loss because that heat is absorbing into each layer it passes through. By the time the heat reaches the targeted area, very little energy is remaining and this does not effectively enhance blood flow. Without the enhanced blood flow effect to the injured tissues - healing just won't happen.

The heating pad may feel good when on the body, but that is because you are merely heating the skin. Moist heat has been believed to be more effective at warming internal tissues versus dry heat, because it is believed that water transfers heat more quickly than through air. Clinical studies do not support the popular belief.

In comparison... The T•Shellz Wrap is based on the scientifically validated principal of Electromagnetic energy. This form of treatment is safe and effective as shown in numerous studies which can be referenced through the National Library of Medicine.

T•Shellz DTR Wrap MendMeshop

The energy from the T•Shellz Wrap ultimately will gently warm deep tissue, improve blood circulation, and boost metabolism and enzyme activity. This is why it works so well - because the body responds very well to this form energy. In stimulating blood flow to the damaged tissue, you provide the tissue with the oxygen, nutrients, and antibodies it needs to regenerate new, healthy collagen. In addition, you will experience a clearing of toxins and excess fluid build up from the injury site. Over the intermediate term, this helps to reduce incidents of swelling as trapped fluids will be whisked away - reducing pressure on vessels.

How much time do I need to dedicate for treatments? Are the products easy to use?

The T•Shellz Wraps are very easy devices to use. After one or two uses, you will engage in the treatments with ease. Very detailed instructions are included and you are always welcome to contact us by phone or email if the need for help arises.

In regards to the T•Shellz Wrap, it is ideal to use the device two or three times a day on average. Each treatment session is a maximum of 20 minutes in duration and the device will turn off automatically at that time. Typically, people use the T•Shellz Wrap before bed, upon awakening (or not long after) and one other time during the day when the opportunity presents itself. For people in an office setting, many will use the device at work (as it can be worn over clothing). For others, they will use the device an our or two after work.

A Cold Compress or Ice Pack is primarily used following activity that stresses the injured tissues (following work, after a sports activity, or just suffering a general re-injury). This is done to reduce inflammation and to minimize tissue damage. Treatments are 15 to 20 minutes in duration.

How long has MendMeShop been in business

We established our firm in December of 2005. Our track record in this field continues to grow and we plan on being around for many decades to come.

What is your return policy? Is it the standard 30 days?

We go above and beyond what other companies offer - we offer a full 60 day money back guarantee with no restocking fees.

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.
