Dear MendMeShop,

My ankle wraps (Inferno and Freezie) have done me good. I used to have pain so intense that I could not sleep. I still work and when I come home from work, I would be in such pain that I could not find a way to get comfortable or relax. I use my freeze wrap for fifteen minutes and my inferno wrap for another fifteen minutes and I can relax the rest of the night. I have also been getting a full night of sleep and wake up pain free. I shall continue to use the ankle wraps along with my (medication) and my stretching exercises, I'll be able to go on working until my retirement in three years. Thank you so much for making this product available to Achilles pain sufferers.

More Facts About Knees:

Babies are born without knee caps. They appear when the child reaches 2-6 years of age.


The knee is the largest articular joint in the body.


Each knee has two tough, rubbery menisci that act as shock absorbers in the joint.


One meniscus sits on the inside of the knee joint and is referred to as the medial meniscus. The other meniscus rests on the outer part and is referred to as the lateral meniscus.


Arthritis is one of the most common causes of knee bursitis.


BFST is a highly effective treatment for knee bursitis.


Runner's knee is not exactly a condition in itself. It sums up a multitude of knee disorders with different causes all centering around the kneecap.


Obesity and improper body alignment are responsible for many knee injuries.


Optimal knee treatment includes avoiding activity, icing the inflammation, gently stretching and warming the area.


BFST treatments can speed ACL, PCL and meniscus recovery significantly.

Dear MendMeShop,

Dear MENDMESHOP People: I just want you to know what miraculous relief your products gave me. I had a torn ligament near the inside ankle of my left foot (called "posterior tibial tendonitis" after a long series of non-effective treatments). I received this injury last OCTOBER!!! (This is August!) My podiatrist had put me in an immovable "boot" the first 2 months (from about Nov. 1, 2011, to Jan 8, 2012. Then he put me in a lesser type of brace till the middle of May. I was not getting any better, so he put me in a "permanent" molded brace which supposedly would do the trick (according to him). But I asked the one who fitted me with this brace how long he thought I would need it, and he plainly said, "The rest of your life!" I yelled, "NOOOOOOOOOO! I will not!!! I WILL BE HEALED!" However, I didn't know how. I then began researching on the internet some other means of healing this type of injury. I found out that tendons do not heal well by themselves, so all I was doing was propping up my injury to a lifestyle of pain and hardship. By the grace of God, I had acquired a motorized chair (I called it my "Chariot") to use, which was a life-saver for about 9 months, or I would have been virtually apartment-bound in this retirement complex where we now live. So I was grateful for the chariot, but it wasn't helping my injured foot to heal. I thought it surely MUST BE healing, but that brace-fitter gave me a rude awakening that it was not, nor would it ever be! Wow! So I researched on the internet any possible alternatives for healing my foot. The MENDMESHOP had the most promising way of healing torn tendons, or tendonitis, that I could find. However, we had already spent lots of money on braces, etc., so I didn't purchase it right away. But that allowed me to see that truly, I was NOT getting any better, even in that fancy, molded-to-my foot-and-calf brace. So after more careful research and printing out the articles in your website to study, my husband and I agreed to take the plunge and order the products. Right off the bat, I found that this was a company that was honest in its dealings, because your sales rep/counselor said it had been too long since my original injury for the Freezie Wrap to be effective, and I only needed the Inferno Wrap. That was a big PLUS in my opinion, which indicated to me that MENDMESHOP was not just out to SELL if I would buy. I even argued somewhat with the rep, but he stood firm, saying I didn't need the Freezie at this point! So I followed his advice and he was so right! I received my Inferno Wrap on July 14 and began using it right away. I used the Inferno Wrap at Medium intensity, at about 2 PM and 11 PM. I followed that routine faithfully for about 10 days, and then increased the procedure to 3 times per day for about 5 more days. On August 2 (only 2 weeks and 5 days into the program) I became truly healed! TRULY HEALED, can you imagine?!? I could hardly believe it, but it was so! There was no pain even without my brace on. And I have not worn the brace since! For a couple of days I still used my "Chariot" for the longer walks I had to do, but then I began leaving it behind and walking normally -- no brace, no pain, no problem! I've even been shopping now without having to use one of those motorized chairs to get around. Thank you SO MUCH!!! I hope you will use this letter to encourage others like me to "take the plunge" and order the equipment and do the routine. It works, and I'd be happy to help anyone do it. In fact, yesterday as I was shopping, I met a woman who had a "boot" on just like the one I first had. I could sypathize greatly with her, so I told her all about you and how to access you on the internet. I pray she will. God bless all of you who run the MENDMESHOP. Gratefully yours, Peggy

Quadriceps Tendinitis

Quadriceps tendonitis can lead to tendinosis if left untreated.

Quadriceps tendinitis (also spelled tendonitis) is a painful condition affecting the quadriceps tendon above the patella (kneecap). The quadriceps group of muscle (individually called the vastus lateralis, vastus intermedius, vastus medialis and the overlying rectus femoris) is the largest in the front of the thigh and is very important for stabilizing the leg. The quadriceps tendon connects the quadriceps to the tibia (shins) via the patellar tendon, which surrounds the knee cap itself. The movement of the knee known as the quadriceps mechanism involves the patella (knee cap), the patella tendon, the quadriceps and its tendon. They all work together to extend the leg to straight.

Quadriceps tendonitis is caused by repetitive use of this tendon. This condition is most common in an athlete who is in involved in sports that require lots of jumping such as basketball, volleyball and jogging, or in a sport that requires a lot of stopping and starting. Little tears in the tendon and tendon sheath will present as pain and inflammation if these tears are not allowed to heal with rest.

Quadriceps tendinitis - inflammation of the quadriceps tendon is caused by tiny tears that are not giving the proper rest to heal.

Inflammation in the quadriceps tendon is often due to irritation and/or micro-tearing of the collagen fibers. When the fibers tear, they become weaker, inflamed and swollen causing pain and tenderness in the area.

There are 2 types of tendonitis, acute and chronic. Acute quadriceps tendonitis refers to inflammation that comes on suddenly, usually from a tendon strain or overloading it during exercise. Chronic quadriceps tendonitis occurs over time and generally results from long term repetitive use of the quadriceps tendon.

With both types of tendinitis, scar tissue develops on the tendon as the tears begin to heal. This scar tissue mends the tears in an abnormal way leaving the collagen fibers weaker and more prone to further injury. In the case of chronic quadriceps tendinitis, a build up of scar tissue over a long period of time will make the tendon and the entire knee joint more prone to re-injury.

Other conditions which can be a cause of anterior (front) knee pain are commonly confused with quadriceps tendonitis. These conditions include patellar tendonitis, synovial plicae, chondromalacia, patello-femoral subluxation and hyper-pressure, fat pad impingement or Hoffa's syndrome and patello-femoral arthritis.

Quadriceps Tendinitis Risk Factors

  • Participating in "jumping" sports such as basketball, volleyball and jogging.
  • Having diabetes, gout or para-hypothyroidism.
  • Age can be a factor because as we grow older our tendons become more brittle and therefore prone to injury.
  • Activities that require sharp, sudden changes of direction or lots of stopping and starting.
  • Mis-alignment of the foot, ankle, and leg including flat feet, leg length discrepancy, tracking abnormalities, etc.

Quadriceps Tendonitis Symptoms

  • Pain when tightening or flexing the quadriceps with a straight leg.
  • Pain when the top of the kneecap is pressed.
  • Irritation or pain when moving from a crouched position to a standing position.
  • Stiffness or tightness the day following any activity or exercise that irritated the area.

Treating Quadriceps Tendinitis

Scar tissue builds on the quadriceps tendon as the tears heal. The build up causes pain and inflexibility in the tendon making it less flexible and more prone to further injury.

The best way to treat quadriceps tendonitis is to start by resting your knee, especially avoiding the particular activity that produced the condition. Regular cold compression wrap application, Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy and gentle stretching and physiotherapy are all helpful.

In the case of mild tendinitis, the body should be able to heal the tendon fibers normally with proper rest. Unfortunately, this is not the usual result, due to the injured tendon being used frequently in everyday activities.

Because of this stress on the quadriceps tendon, the body heals the injured fibers by binding them together with fibrotic adhesions, or scar tissue. This is a normal, protective response of the body, done in an attempt to prevent further damage to the injured area. Unfortunately, this leads to inflexibility in the knee and possibly chronic knee problems.

Customer Reviews

The trick to healing quadriceps tendonitis is getting it to heal with minimal scar tissue formation - something our Inferno Wraps® are great at! Even with optimum healing there is always less elasticity in a previously injured quadriceps tendon. You need to make sure you heal this as best you can- that way, your chance of re-injury and chronic knee problems down the road is much lower than average.

Cold Compression Therapy
Cold Compression Freezie Wrap Therapy reduces the pain, inflammation and swelling of quadriceps tendonitis.

Using cold compression to treat quadriceps tendinitis reduces pain, swelling, and tissue damage.

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 quadriceps tendon and tissue cells begin to break-down. The Knee Freezie Wrap™ allows you to treat yourself in an effective and convenient way and rid yourself of the pain of quadriceps tendinitis above the knee.

How to Order

The deep cold provided by the Knee Freezie Wrap™ slows cell function thereby reducing cellular break-down. Furthermore, because the cold wrap serve to numb the nerves, the wrap also reduces 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 surround your kneecap with soothing cold.

Once the inflammation and swelling of quadriceps tendonoitis has been alleviated, nourishing and strengthening the tendon tissue in the knee is recommended. Using Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy will speed your recovery and heal your soft connective and muscular tissue more completely preparing your knee for strengthening exercises. Talk to your doctor or physical therapist to find out which exercises are appropriate for your situation.

Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™
MendMeShop Knee Inferno Wrap speeds the healing of the soft tissue surrounding the patella to strengthen your entire knee following quadriceps tendinitis.

After the inflammation and swelling above your kneecap and around your quadriceps tendon is reduced, you can begin to treat your entire knee with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy, or BFST.

BFST increases the amount of blood that flows naturally to your knee to nourish your meniscal cartilage, tendons, ligaments and muscles and speed healing.

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 tissue damage of quadriceps tendinitis leaving the area clean and able to heal faster.

The Knee Inferno Wrap™ provides the most effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief and healing with no side effects. During your recovery, you will probably have to modify and/or eliminate any activities that cause pain or discomfort in your knee until your pain and inflammation settle. Taking the time to care for your knee properly will have your quadriceps tendon back to normal faster and allow you to get back to the activities you enjoy.

How to Order

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!
