I developed tendonitis in my left ankle about a year ago, after having some pain and realizing I needed to go to the doctor to see what I’d done! In November, I was told it was tendonitis and to wear a “boot” or air cast and that they would prescribe physical therapy. I was told that I did not need to wear the boot 24/7, but anytime it was painful or would be using my feet a lot, I should use it.
Even though I’m a type A and like to multi-task and move quickly, I wore the boot, but boy did it get in my way. The physical therapy definitely helped, and they gave me some exercises to do at home and while gone for about two weeks.
I graduated from physical therapy in January, and although my ankle did not really feel stable, the pain had diminished. However my body had aches and pains, some sciatica, my legs had cramping and those worsened whenever using the boot for long walking periods, as suggested by PT’s and doctor.
Basically, we dediced that all this had helped, but anytime there was a strain put on that ankle, it was back to swelling and pain. And, the boot helped to keep pressure off the injury, but basically caused more damage to the rest of me.
Frustrated, I decided to search tendonitis on line, and was looking for other modalities for healing. Voila! This lead me to the MendMeShop. With their 60 Day Money Back Guarantee, Free Shipping on orders over $200.00 and great support – I decided to purchase (I mean how could I go wrong)!
I got the Achilles Inferno Wrap (for pain), the Achilles Freezie Wrap (for swelling, although after using the Inferno really didn’t have a swelling problem) and the 5 Year Extended Warranty on about the 20th of June this year.
Read the instructions, called with a couple of questions and got great personalized service, and started using the Inferno Wrap as directed!
Immediately my ankle was back to its more normal size and most of the pain was gone. I am able to move freely, actually am working a few days a week on my feet 8-9 hours, and although I don’t believe my tendon is totally healed yet – I believe it will be as I continue to use the Inferno Wrap.
I simply saw that the PT (which included some ten treatments) was giving me snippets of relief. The boot left me wondering if it wouldn’t cause other damage even though it took the pressure off the tendon when I was unable to walk on it.
The Inferno Wrap, and the few times I’ve needed the Freezie Wrap, have done more for me and has been worth every penny spent. I know I’ve saved 100’s in PT had I not met TheMendMe Shop and their products.

Osteoarthritis - Conservative Treatments
Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™
After the inflammation and swelling is gone you can begin to treat your osteoarthritic pain with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy, or BFST. BFST increases the amount of blood that flows naturally to your knee to nourish cartilage, tendons, ligaments and muscles to soothe your pain and make the joint healthier.
By treating yourself with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy you can increase your body's blood supply to the knee and your body's natural healing power. In addition, the fresh blood flow whisks away dead cells and toxins that have built up from the deterioration or trauma leaving the area clean and able to heal faster. Our Knee Inferno Wrap® provides effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief and healing with no side effects.
A Knee Inferno Wrap® gives you unparalleled BFST energy. You simply won't find a comparable product on the market. Other therapy products can not come close to offering the comfortable, contoured fit and targeted energy treatment an Inferno Wrap® provides. You will feel the soothing, deep penetrating warmth as it works to stimulate your blood flow and just make your knee feel better, we guarantee it. Now you can reduce your pain anywhere with the comfortable, light weight Inferno Wrap® for your knee.
Cold Compression Therapy
Cold Compression Therapy is used to decrease swelling and relieve the pain for chronic or diagnosed arthritic knees within the first 48 hours of a flare-up or following knee surgery. Cold Compression Therapy is recommended when you are experiencing swelling and chronic pain as it can also make the joint feel stiffer and should be used along with BFST (Knee Inferno Wrap®) treatments.
A Knee Freezie Wrap® allows you to treat yourself in an effective and convenient way.
Cold Compression Therapy works by interrupting and slowing nerve and cell function in the damaged area. This is important because once blood vessels are damaged, they can no longer carry oxygenated blood to the knee tissue and cells begin to break-down.
The deep cold provided by the Knee Freezie Wrap® slows cell function thereby reducing cellular break-down. Furthermore, because the cold wraps serve to numb the nerves, the wraps also reduce pain! The Knee Freezie Wrap® uses a deep cold gel pack with a medical-grade neoprene compression cover to keep the ice off the skin preventing cryoburn and to keep the cold in the area that you need it.
If you do not have access to BFST, gentle massage around the arthritic knee area or small flexing or extending knee movements will also help increase blood flow, oxygen, nutrients, and will prevent stiffness. It is important to move your joints often if possible.
During your recovery, you will probably have to modify and/or eliminate any activities that cause pain or discomfort in your knee area until your pain and inflammation settle.
With these 3 easy therapies you will notice incredible improvement in your knee. The more diligent you are with your treatment and rehabilitation, the faster you will see successful results!
