Dear MendMeShop,

I have owned the elbow Inferno Wrap for over a year now. I have had tennis elbow in both elbows for over 15 years. After any activity using either arm, both elbows ache...heavily. About 15 months ago, the tennis elbow got so bad in my left arm I had to finally go under the knife for torn tendons both in my elbow and my bicep. I could not even extend my arm while sleeping and the gym was a FAR fetched memory. The process from the first doctor's appointment to the actual operating table took about 4 months. I was also told the recovery would be about 3 months and not fully recovered from the tears for a full year. I was informed that no matter what I did, I would always have this inflammation in my elbow and I needed something to give. Either my activity level, including the gym, would have to be cut down drastically, or I had to find a way to get the inflammation down. I am allergic to all anti-inflammatories and NSAIDS. This is where my researched turned up the Inferno Wrap. As you can imagine, I have tried all sorts of heating pads, cooling pads, ice therapy, and months of physical therapy. I believe I even found the Mend Me Shop and the Inferno Wrap while looking for something along the heating and cooling pad line. My immediate thought was why are these so expensive? What makes them so special? I have to say that initially, I took a chance because I had no other option for relief. The day the Inferno Wrap arrived, I knew I had something I had not had access to before. You can tell IMMEDIATELY tell after turning this on that is is working DEEP into the tissue. The wrap does get warm, but in NO WAY is this a heating pad. THIS IS THE ONLY THING THAT PROVIDED AND CONTINUES TO PROVIDE ME RELIEF. I have not dialed down my activity level. When my elbows ache, the Inferno Wrap goes on, and within one 20 minute treatment, the ache is gone. Believe me when I say I have been looking for this for 15 years steady. I have since recommended to EVERYONE I know the Inferno Wrap, and have purchased one for my back, which works just as well, as expected. This is a product that works. This is a product that is backed by good customer service. This is a product that is worth EVERY PENNY. Knowing what I know now, buying the Inferno Wrap was no chance, but a miracle and nothing less.

Dear MendMeShop,

I have been using the Inferno & Freezie Wraps since November,2012. I saw an orthopedic doctor after Thanksgiving and have been going to occupational therapy (3) days per week. I was told by my ortho doctor to continue to use the items that I had purchased from you (I brought them in on my initial visit with him). I am currently using the inferno wrap as soon as I wake up in the morning, then continue to do my daily wrist and arm exercises. I use the freezie wrap when I am finished. While working I use a tennis elbow brace and I am also using it while doing housework or other chores where I am using my arm alot. My arm is improving slowly as I am working (4) days a week as a chef for 12-14 hours per day. My ortho doctor told me that it would take some time to heal completely. I don't see him until the end of February (3 months since initial visit). So far I am seeing improvement in both pain management and flexibility. I believe the combination of therapy sessions and the use of your wrap treatments are the key to a successful treatment plan. I'll keep you informed of my progress. Thanks again for your help and guidance.

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!

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.

Dear MendMeShop,

It's refreshing to hear your sincere concern for the health benefit of your products to your customers. I'm a repeat customer. I purchased my first elbow inferno wrap about five years ago. I use it all the time, since I play tennis about 4 to 5 times a week. I consider the money well spent for five years of playing lots of tennis. I also have a knee inferno wrap, which I use less often because once my knees healed they hurt only occasionally. Because the pad in the knee wrap is bigger, I can also use it on pain in my lower back, which I sometimes get from pulled muscles. For years I've been recommending your products to tennis playing friends who complain about painful joints, and I'm always surprised how few actually want to invest the money into healing themselves. They'd rather use neoprene sleeves, braces or compression devices, which don't work very well and have no healing effect. I guess they just think it's normal to suffer and stop playing at regular intervals. Thanks for great products.

Treatments for Tennis Elbow

how to cure tennis elbow

You have tennis elbow and now looking for a way to deal with the pain and heal it completely. The good news not every elbow tendon injury or condition requires surgery. With most cases you will notice a great improvement within 6 to 12 weeks; however it can take months in some chronic cases years to return to normal. The more diligent you are with your treatment and rehabilitation, the faster you will see successful results.

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

Most doctors, physicians and orthopedic specialists will recommend conservative therapy for minor elbow injuries before considering surgery.

Some conservative treatment methods recommended include:

Increase blood flow to speed up healing of your tennis elbow.
  • Rest - This is important for initial healing because without an appropriate amount of rest you are at risk for increased inflammation, pain and re-injury of your elbow.
  • Apply Effective Cold Compression
    Effective Cold Compression = Treatment with a Freezie Wrap® Immediate cold (using a Elbow 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 elbow tissue(s) and stop your injury from getting worse.
  • Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) - You can use your own blood flow to maximize your rehabilitation, decrease recovery time, and boost overall long-term healing.



Other Conservative Treatment Methods can be Risky

Cortisone is an injectable anti-inflammatory drug that is intended to reduce swelling and inflammation in the tendon. It is a short-term solution - this treatment does not lead to long-term healing of the tendon.

In some cases, physicians may recommend drugs or medications like NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) to manage pain and inflammation. Alternative medications like cortisone injections will help only with symptoms and not dealing with the actual tissue damage. It is designed to reduce inflammation, by slowing down the blood flow to the area that is trying to heal your injury. Yes, you may have pain relief, but at the high cost of re-injury or your tendon injury is healing at all!

"Medical evidence shows that cortisone shots can damage the surrounding tissue, fray the tendon and ligament tissue, and even trigger a rupture. Most side effects are temporary, but skin weakening (atrophy) and lightening of the skin (depigmentation) can be permanent." (reference: American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons)

 


What About Surgery?

Tennis Elbow open elbow surgery - 90% of people suffering from Tennis Elbow can heal through conservative treatment methods.

It is true that 5% of all people suffering from Tennis Elbow may need to undergo surgery. The other 90 to 95% of all people will recover from their Tennis Elbow symptoms within 12 months of consistently using conservative treatments. (source: WebMD)

Before surgery is even considered, your physician will advise many months commitment to a conservative therapy program at least 6 consecutive months. Why so long? Your doctor will encourage you to stick to your at home treatments, your body has the ability to heal all on its own. In most cases time is needed for the tissue to form and be healthy enough to cope with our busy lifestyles. Surgery is only the last resortoption for the elbow! This is because the elbow joint is very flexible and the skin is thin. This flexibility stretches the tissue and lack of blood flow makes damage to the tissue very hard to heal.

ColdCure Technology® Treatments, Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy, and Physical therapy will prepare your elbow for surgery. Strengthening your arm before surgery will give you the best chance for a successful recovery. Surgery is not the end of the journery with your elbow recovery, but another new chapter that has it's own challenges. You may not return your arm to the complete function and range of motion you had before. After surgery, you will undergo another 6-12 months of conservative therapy to help heal your arm.

Tennis Elbow Supports and Exercises

Your doctor may encourage you to use a tennis elbow cuff or brace. The brace or cuff gently addes compression to the muscles in the forearm to support the tendons in the elbow. This helps to reduce symptoms of the tennis elbow only symptoms. Caution wearing the tennis elbow brace all the times or so that you can continue to work or exercise. The elbow tissue is then not allowed the time to heal, is a certain recipe for your condition to become chronic and your elbow will be move to state of unhealing and it increases your need for surgery. In some cases it may cause increased secondary conditons such as pinched nerves and interruption to the blood flow to the joint.

Restoring Your Elbow's Flexibility and Strength

Physical Therapy is a very helpful way to decrease pain in the soft tissue, restore strength to atrophied muscles and improve elbow, forearm and wrist strength and mobility. Your physical therapist will start you on a program will be tailored for your tennis elbow injury.

Once your pain starts to reduce, a physical therapist will also set up an individualized arm and shoulder strengthening and stretching exercise program for you to perform at home or in the gym.

This will be based on your needs and abilities, and will help you return to performing your normal routines.

A trained physical therapist will help to ensure your rehabilitation process is effective. For best, long term results use the Inferno Wrap® before undergoing physical therapy to gain residual elongation and extensibility of collagen tissue. (reference: Chapter 9 of "Therapeutic Heat and Cold", 4th edition [amazon.com link] Ed. Justus F. Lehmann, M.D., Williams, and Wilkin)

Tennis Elbow Exercises

As you start to return to your activities, it is good to gauge how well you are using your arm in these activities to determine if you can decrease stress on the injured tissue. This may involve changing your technique for sports, for example using a two-handed backhand instead of a one-handed backhand in tennis, or using a properly weighted racquet. Which will take stress off your forearm muscles.

You may also need to change equipment you use at your job, home or even drive your car to help you perform tasks more effectively and safely. Such taking more frequent short breaks at work to rest your wrist when using a hammer or screwdriver.

It is important to speak with a medical professional or occupational therapist to get more information about proper equipment, procedures and tools necessary for the specific activity you participate in or the office/work setting you work in during your normal daily life.


Lifelong Health

The best way to manage the health of your body is to understand the tools for a healthy lifestyle. Using proven conservative treatments, alternative therapies, protection, and self-management (diet, rest, exercise), you can proactively manage your own recovery. Your lifelong health depends on your commitment to living a healthy and safe lifestyle.

Make sure to restrict movement when you are suffering from Tennis Elbow, exercise caution when exercising or performing athletic activities while your elbow heals

You may have to modify some of your activities or movements during your recovery to ensure the long term health of your elbow. Even if you are already feeling less pain and greater mobility, you need to continue with your treatment plan. Until you elbow is healed, you are still at risk for further damage. And not forgetting, the longer you wait to treat your Tennis Elbow injury, the higher the potential is for re-injury or for permanent damage to occur.

Most often, Tennis Elbow injuries are developed after ignoring your body's warning signs. Masking pain and immobility or continuing strenuous repetitive movements cause micro tears to form in your tendons. If your body is not given a chance to heal, scar tissue will form. This weak, inflexible tissue will cause chronic Tennis Elbow symptoms that include constant pain and functional restriction.

Most cases of Tennis Elbow are completely treatable by conservative therapies. If you want to continue to enjoy your activities, sports, or have a physically demanding job, committing yourself to a conservative treatment routine, as soon as possible, will increase your chances of a full recovery.

The more committed you are to your recovery, the faster you can return to your active lifestyle free from pain and immobility.

ColdCure Technology® and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy will benefit your life long health care, whether you have already sustained an injury, or are looking to prevent one from occurring. As long as you participate in activities that have the potential for causing injury to your body, you should participate in effective conservative therapy.

Some conservative treatment methods recommended include:

  • Rest - This is important for initial healing because without proper rest you're at risk for increased pain, inflammation. This can make your elbow even worse and turn an acute injury into a chronic one.
  • Increase blood flow to speed up healing of your tennis elbow.
  • Avoid Activities that Caused Your Injury - While resting your elbow it's also important to avoid all activities that may have caused your tennis elbow (especially any repetitive arm, hand or wrist 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 elbow 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 elbow. This also boost overall long-term healing of this injury.


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

The 1st step for conservative treatment of your elbow 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 an injury and following elbow 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 from tennis elbow.

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 elbow 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 a tennis elbow injury, our Freezie Wraps® provide:

  • The highest-level of cold compression to quickly decrease pain, swelling, inflammation and draw the heat out of your elbow.
  • A tailored wrap that conforms perfectly around your elbow.
  • 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 elbow 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 Elbow 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 tennis elbow 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 elbow 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 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 and it won't budge for the entire treatment period. You'll no longer have to deal with annoying pooling around your elbow or have to hold a hard block of ice on your injury!


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

 

tennis elbow 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 elbow, you also limit the amount of healing that needs to occur. This is a very important step to heal elbow injuries faster and with less pain! This is why you need to treat your elbow injury as soon as possible, when you notice pain / swelling / inflammation, directly after a re-injury or surgery. Applying a Elbow 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 Elbow Freezie Wrap® can get the swelling / inflammation in your elbow under control! After you get rid of the swelling for good you can start actually dealing with your elbow injury and the healing needed.


Use a Cold Compression Elbow Freezie Wrap®:

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



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

There are a lot of people that think their tennis elbow injury is gone after their swelling and inflammation are gone and their elbow 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 elbow injury isn't even close to being fully healed.

After the inflammation in and around your elbow has been reduced, providing extra blood flow and strengthening the tissue in and around your elbow is recommended. Believe it or not, the best time for you to focus on avoiding re-injury and strengthening the weakened tissue in your elbow is when the swelling's gone and your elbow 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 your elbow by returning to your normal daily activities too quickly?
  • How many times in the past have you aggravated your elbow just trying to perform basic tasks around your house?
  • Is your tennis elbow 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 injured elbow without causing further damage. This goal is even more complicated by the fact that you have to use your arm / elbow for almost everything in everyday life.

 


What can you do to actually start healing your tennis elbow?

Increase blood flow to speed up healing of your tennis elbow.

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 elbow 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 elbow 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 elbow injury will be delayed... Sometimes for a very long period of time.

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

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


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

 

When should you use hot or cold for injuries?

Using Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®), will help with your recovery and heal your elbow more completely. BFST® increases the amount of blood that flows naturally to your soft tissue to nourish your elbow, improving elasticity and speeding the healing process. This increased Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy to your damaged elbow 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 Elbow Inferno Wrap®.

The Elbow 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.

healing your elbow injury quicker and avoid surgery

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 tennis elbow, increasing the blood flow right where your injury is!

  • When treating a tennis elbow or any soft tissue injury, an effective therapy will increase blood flow to the injury while your elbow is immobile.
  • This increase in blood flow will accelerate the body's own ability to heal itself.
  • The Elbow 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 Elbow Inferno Wrap® can reduce pain and stiffness from scar tissue and increase overall flexibility in your elbow. Increased blood flow will whisk away damaged tissue, toxins, and any bacteria in or around your injured elbow 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 Elbow 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 elbow. 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 elbow tendon, 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 use 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 those not only suffering from a tennis elbow, but for many other soft tissue injuries as well.

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

  • Your pain will be reduced.
  • Your injured elbow 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® Tennis Elbow Inferno Wrap®:

  • After swelling and inflammation have been reduced with cold compression.
  • Before exercise or workouts to warm up your elbow to prevent re-injury.
  • Before and after tennis elbow surgery, during rehabilitation, to warm up your elbow before physical therapy exercising or stretching.
  • Anytime you feel your elbow 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 elbow.
  • Any other situation where you need to increase blood flow to your elbow to relax your soft tissue, relieve pain, prevent re-injury and enhance flexibility of your tissue.
 

Self-Management

In order to live a healthy lifestyle, it is important to manage your weight, diet, and level of exercise. Self-management of your health will result in lifelong benefits. Information Seeking and being Proactive are key tools to understanding and maintaining your body. It is important to keep a positive attitude and to always seek the guidance of your physician if you have any questions or concerns about your health.

The best way to manage your health is through:

Weight Loss/Weight Maintenance

Eating healthy food, taking vitamins and minerals, and balancing a proper healthy eating diet and nutrition can help to give your body the nutrients it needs to maintain healthy bones, muscles, joints and tendons.

Being overweight or underweight, places unnecessary stress on your body. These stresses can reduce your energy levels and put you at risk of developing injuries, life altering conditions, or disease. Maintaining a healthy body weight will increase your energy, your self confidence, and your ability to complete activities. A healthy weight can be achieved through exercise and a diet rich in vitamins and minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals, protein, fats, and complex carbohydrates. Speak to a registered nutritionist about developing a healthy eating plan catered to your individual lifestyle and favorite foods.

Exercise and Activity

Regular physical activity and exercise can help to promote stronger muscles/tendons and general good health.

Keeping a regular routine of exercise and activity will not only promote weight loss/weight maintenance, but will also make you feel good! Exercise releases chemicals in your brain called endorphins. These chemicals affect your mood and leave you feeling energized, happy, and self-confident. Exercise has been proven to help deal with the effects of depression and other mood disorders. Exercise will strengthen your body to prevent injury and allow you to accomplish all of your physical goals - whether those goals are for athletic activity or being able to lead a normal, active, healthy life.

Understanding your Tennis Elbow Injury

The best way to tackle a problem is to face it head on. To do this, you have to understand what you're up against. It is important to know how you sustained your injury and the effects it is having on your body. This will allow you to take the steps you need to treat your symptoms and prevent further injury. Sometimes this involves modifying or limiting the way you participate in activities.

Dealing With Negative Emotions and Planning for Success

Half of the battle when facing an injury is how you feel about your restricted movement and the pain you are experiencing. It is important to stay positive when dealing with a Tennis Elbow injury.

It is important to keep a positive attitude, but sometimes that can be difficult. Focus on your goals and create a realistic plan on how to achieve them. Speak to your physician to fully understand your recovery process. Talk to other people who are experiencing Tennis Elbow symptoms like you. Look at all of the things you can/have accomplished and reward yourself for achieving your goals. Remind yourself that you are in control of your recovery and the commitment to your treatment will help you achieve lifelong health.

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,

I'm a believer in your products. My wife had plantar fasciitis a few years ago. I did some research and came across your website. What impressed me the most and encouraged me to purchase was the response I read from your founder to a naysayer whom had never even tried your wraps. This guy was bashing your products when all others were praising them. Your owner invited him to Canada with airfare included to tour the headquarters! Anyway, I figured it was the real deal and so did he after that! My wife's brother is a chiropractor she literally healed her foot with the use of your inferno wrap and another treatment in a couple of weeks! I personally have Golfers elbow in both arms. I've been using the Inferno wrap for about 5 days so far. I haven't used the Freezie wrap yet as I really haven't much pain and no swelling. I definitely feel that it's working already. I'm confident that within a couple of weeks or more I'll be good as new! Thanks again for being part of such a wonderful company that stands behind its product! Sincerely, Jim Rossi

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

Dear MendMeShop,

I learned about your product from surfing the net looking for natural ways to heal tendon injuries. What I read on your site made sense to me. Your explanation of soft tissue injury healing, plus your money back guarantee led to my purchase of your products. I am very happy with both of the items I bought from your company! The pain in my elbow, which was a constant shooting pain, is gone! I am still using the Elbow inferno 2x/day. Thank-you so much for offering this kind of a product. With your company's help I succeeded in mending at home and am back to my work out routine as before.

Dear MendMeShop,

I am a very active individual. If I am not running or lifting weights you can usually find me doing various outdoor and home improvement projects. That is why when I recently started experiencing pain in my shoulder, upper arm and forearm I concluded that I had aggravated an old rotator cuff injury. Initially I ignored the discomfort, thinking that that would make it magically disappear but, to my disappointment the pain only continued to get worse. After a couple of months of I pain, I decided to do something for myself. I tried stretching exercises, massage, the heating pad and ibprofen but nothing seemed to be helping. That's when I went online and found the Mend Me Shop and the inferno wrap for the shoulder seemed like a good way to wrap the heat around the immediate area that needed treating. When I picked up the package from the post office I was anxious to get started. I was so pleased that after only three days of using the products, I was feeling relief. It's only been a little over a week since I started treatments and I can say that I can once again imagine living without the that constant pain. Thanks so much for the relief !!!

Dear MendMeShop,

It's refreshing to hear your sincere concern for the health benefit of your products to your customers. I'm a repeat customer. I purchased my first elbow inferno wrap about five years ago. I use it all the time, since I play tennis about 4 to 5 times a week. I consider the money well spent for five years of playing lots of tennis. I also have a knee inferno wrap, which I use less often because once my knees healed they hurt only occasionally. Because the pad in the knee wrap is bigger, I can also use it on pain in my lower back, which I sometimes get from pulled muscles. For years I've been recommending your products to tennis playing friends who complain about painful joints, and I'm always surprised how few actually want to invest the money into healing themselves. They'd rather use neoprene sleeves, braces or compression devices, which don't work very well and have no healing effect. I guess they just think it's normal to suffer and stop playing at regular intervals. Thanks for great products.
