Dear MendMeShop,

I am very satisfied with the Freezie wrap and the Inferno wrap. I just played in a tournament - total five games in two days and used the freezie as soon as each game ended. In the evening I used the Inferno. I am having surgery to remove the "flap" from a torn meniscus last day of July and purchased these two items to help get me through three tournaments before the surgery and to use as remedial therapy following surgery. Thank you for a very good product.

Dear MendMeShop,

Last spring, I aggravated an old injury in my right knee and I was in pain. My brother-in-law had recovered from knee inflammation using the Knee BFST wrap. So he loaned me his to use and I was pain-free within six weeks. I apparently stressed the knee again recently. I decided to order my own Knee BFST wrap this time - so that I would be prepared in the years to come. I am experiencing relief already and I am very grateful!

Dear MendMeShop,

The cold (Knee Freezie Wrap) & hot (Knee Inferno) wrap combo, along with the knee-flex allowed me to get back to work in half the time I was expecting. My older son injured his knee & I was able to help him during his visit. He was amazed, & had more recovery progress in a week than he had the 2 weeks prior. I would recommend the products to anyone. Thank you, JT

Dear MendMeShop,

The first time I used the shoulder inferno wrap and the freezie wrap was to treat a rotator cuff injury I sustained from over use and aging. I was in my early 60's and an avid tennis player,kayaker, skier, hiker and biker for most of my life. Doctors were recommending surgery but I opted for physical therapy. This helped but did not give me the relief I needed to continue with all of my athletic activities. Then I started using your product. After activities where I used my shoulder, even weight training, I used the freezie wrap followed by the inferno wrap. Then I used the inferno wrap periodically throughout the day while at work. I'm a therapist and my clients were OK with me wearing the wrap during sessions if I felt the need to. I experienced the ability to use my shoulder and be completely pain free. I was thrilled. Then at age 65 I began to have achilles tendon inflammation which became extremely painful. Doctors explained to me that as we age tendons lose flexibility and are more prone to injury. I bought that explanation to a point but again tried physical therapy, prolonged stretching, Ibuprofen and rest. I had relief if I used large regular doses of anti-inflamatory medications but was concerned about the long term negative affects of the meds. I purchased the Ankle inferno and freezie wrap and began the same routine I had used with my rotator cuff injury. I'm happy to say the results were the same. Even this aging body was able to repair and stretch my achilles tendon with exercise, and the cold and warm treatments from your products. Now I am still playing tennis and doing all of my other activities and I remain pain free. After athletics I use the freezie wrap followed by the inferno wrap. Also, before I play racket sports or hike I use the inferno wrap on my ankle and follow with gentle stretching. When I get home I use the freezie wrap. Who knows how long I will be able to continue my active life style. But right now I know that these products are enabling me to be an active, vibrant, aging woman who can (almost) keep up with my kids. I should add that I also maintain a healthy weight, train with weights, exercise every day and eat a plant based diet with lean protein. Even my healthy lifestyle wasn't enough to prevent these nagging injuries that become more prevalent as we age. So....thanks for making a great product ...... and my life more manageable.

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,

The products have been great for my athletic injuries (achilles tear and a meniscus tear). The products have definitely helped me recover faster and get back to my active lifestyle.

Dear MendMeShop,

Dear Paul, Thank you so much for your Courtesy email. I have used the wraps, alternating the treatments as your information advised. I am absolutely thrilled with the results. For over a month, I could not get up out of my chair without assistance and I thought my knee was never going to heal. I have used them for 9 full days and I am able to get up by myself. I have never had any problem like this before and I have a new appreciation for the disabled. This treatment has been unbelievably successful for me and I have told everyone I know about this product. It has been like going from night to day....I am at least 85% better. Thank you again for these most wonderful products. I having been thanking my wonderful God and Savior of this universe for you people.

Dear MendMeShop,

First I have a bad knee with arthritis and loss of cartilage. Over a year ago I was advised by my doctor to get a knee replacement. I am 70 years old using a arthritis drug, it is not effective as it once was, so I have been getting special shots in my knee, This combination brought my pain level down quite a bit. But I was looking for more because I didn’t want a knee replacement yet. I found you add on the internet for the Freezie and Inferno Wraps. I bought both. When my knee swells from too much activity I use freeze to help bring down the swelling. The freeze really works great and relieves the pain. On a Daily basis when I get up, I use the Inferno Wrap and I immediately can become active for most normal activities for the day without pain, unless I overdo then I do the Freezie. I also use the heat at night when I go to bed which relieves any pain I might have then. I have since bought an Inferno knee wrap for my wife and she says it is the best thing she has ever used to comfort her bad knees. Both her knees are bad with arthritis, and she is wanting another one so she can do both knees at the same time. I also have a lower back that for years was either causing spasms in either side when I would overdo activities, I bought the back Inferno after having such great success with it, each morning I lay it on the bed and lie on it for 20 min before I start my Daily activities. As long as I do this every day I have not had back problems. If I go for a few days without it, my back will start to tighten up again. I then lie on it for relief. One time my back went out completely when not using it and instead of the 2 weeks to get back in shape it only took a few days while using the Inferno. I now use it every morning and night and my back has not went out for some time. My only concern is now my wife is using it so we have to fight for it. Soon we will have to get her one. I am very active in sports and daily activities that require lot of stress on body parts, and as you get older, these body parts don’t work as good as they used to and causes pain. So any help I can get I will go for it. I have also used these wraps on leg muscle cramps for very fast relief and for stiff necks. Anywhere I get a pain I try to wrap one of these Inferno Wrap around it for relief. Great Product!

Dear MendMeShop,

I am most satisfied with the products that I purchased. It is clearly high quality and I am positive it will heal my knee in the long run. I am really looking forward to getting my knee sorted out permanently. I did have a knee operation about two years ago but there were no time to give it a decent recovery time. Unfortunately as a mechanic working on the power plant here in Salerno, we work on gravel surfaces 24/7 for 85 days before returning home for a 3 week vacation. At the age of 53 it becomes real stress full and I also had to put away my running shoes, which was also a blow to me. I am very confident that your products will get me back on the road again and I would love to do the Comrades ultra marathon in South Africa for the third time.

Dear MendMeShop,

I'm 52 & in fairly good shape, I mountain bike for hours - at least twice a week. I kayak offshore for hours twice a week. I also snorkle & work out. So when my son invited me to play paint ball, my leg muscles were strong enough to do what my mind told them...to a point where my left leg (the one that got bent backwards playing little league baseball 29 years ago) became so painful the next day. I was shocked & amazed how I had gone from in great shape to a hobbling old man. A bit of research I re-learned hot before & cold after a workout/activity. Cold packs are cheap at the drug store & heat pads are too, but destroyed a few of these in the microwave oven to heat. I found the frozen packs seemed a bit too much & the heat pads ether nearly burned me or wasn't hot enough to get deep. I then went back & ordered your hot & cold products AND MY PRODUCTS GOT HERE IN MAUI IN TWO DAYS ARRIVING ASTONISHINGLY ON A SATURDAY !!!! I now heat up both my knees before a workout or just as good treatment & cool 'em down after. I feel like I'm 99% better but I'll continue to use these products as I feel it'll keep me from getting a knee injury. The relief is so wonderful...I paddle for hours and I have no issues.

Ice vs Heat for Treating Your Knee Injury


Use ice and heat to deal with your knee pain.

When dealing with a knee injury it's hard to know what treatment will work best for you. You might be wondering if ice and heat will work for you. Or maybe even which will work better - ice OR heat.

Icing and heating are 2 of the most natural treatment options available. Compared to medications, surgery and other treatment methods - icing and heating have been around for centuries and have always been used for knee injury healing as a means to soothe and heal.

We understand that it can get pretty confusing to figure out what conservative treatment method will work best with all of the treatment options available to you today. To get started, you should think about the benefits you'll get from using these therapies.

What's Better to Treat Your Knee: Ice or Heat?

Ice and heat are the best treatment combination for you if:

What's better for your knee injury? Ice or heat?
  • You're looking to heal quickly and want to boost the natural power of pain relief and healing in your body.
  • You don't want to repeatedly pay the cost (both from your wallet and time needed for long-term healing) of injections, medications, hospital visits or surgery.
  • You want to prevent any future injury, pain, tear or swelling in your knee.
  • You want to control your own treatment and healing at home, on your own time.
  • You're looking for a tried, tested, and true method of healing that's been used for centuries and has worked for countless other knee pain sufferers.

How to Use Superior Temperature Treatments to Heal & Relieve Pain from Your Knee Injury!

 

Use BFST with an Inferno Wrap to increase blood flow circulation in your knee.

Combining cold and warmth is a simple yet effective way to get immediate pain relief and promote long-term healing. In your lifetime you've probably had your mom, family doctor, nurse, surgeon or physical therapist tell you to use ice right after you're injured and something warm from time to time once the swelling's gone down. It's a simple yet very effective way to relieve pain and promote healing in your knee.

Knee injuries can happen to anyone, right now there are thousands of doctors and physical therapists dealing with patients that require a solution to treat their knee injury fast and heal it (where possible).

If you want to be proactive about properly dealing with your knee pain, speak to your doctor about adding conservative temperature treatments to your recovery with MendMyKnee's system using a Cold Compression Knee Freezie Wrap® and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy with a Knee Inferno Wrap®.


The MendMyKnee at-home temperature therapy healing system gives you:

  • Products that are approved by the FDA for use in the hospital or at home.
  • A Cold compression Knee Freezie Wrap® that relieves pain, inflammation and swelling fast with consistent cold temperatures that WON'T reach temperatures so low that it causes cryoburn (like ice or blue gel packs full of anti-freeze and chemicals).
  • Boost healing efforts with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy for increased circulation.
  • Food-grade, non-toxic gel packs that can be chilled in the fridge or freezer.
  • A Knee Inferno Wrap® with deeply penetrating Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy right into your damaged soft tissue where you need treatment most (unlike other methods that just heat your skin - like hot water bottles, hot baths, etc.)
  • Medical-grade, soft, plush, neoprene wraps that meet ISO 10993 biocompatibility testing - providing the safest product for cold compression and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy treatment.
  • A Treatment Formula used by physical therapists and doctors - with an Inferno Wrap® used to increase blood flow circulation before activity and a Freezie Wrap® used to relieve pain / swelling after activity.


These tools will help you achieve long-term healing results and prevent re-injury.

Both Hot & Cold Treatments are Important


Is heat better for treating knee pain?

People get confused with how ice and heat work to relieve pain and heal. They also get confused with which temperature treatment is better for their injury and how to get the right amount of "ice" or "heat" for effective treatment.

When it comes to using ice and heat for treating knee injuries, it's important to keep in mind that both ice AND heat are very effective ways to relieve pain and heal. Most people will think one is better over the other from their own experience or what a doctor / physical therapist has previously told them.

The only difference between using ice and heat is that 1 is better for you at a specific time in your healing cycle. Ice is used first, right when you get your injury, to decrease pain / swelling and inflammation. Heat comes later, to increase blood flow circulation and stimulate the body's healing response.

Is ice better for treating knee pain?

So which is better?

They'll ultimately work for you in the same way. Each temperature has its own unique benefits for your knee, and when used togther they provide a powerful advantage to long-term healing. You may already know that ice or heat feels better on your knee, and this could influence your decision too.

The bottom line is that ice and heat are exceptional, natural, pain relievers and healers for your knee injury.

There are cases where some injuries will respond better to 1 temperature over the other. We want to help clear up the confusion so you know which is better (icy cold or gentle heat) and how to get the most from your treatment at home.



How Do You Use Ice / Cold as Pain Relief for Your Knee Injury?


Cold should be used for new injuries or right after re-injury.

COLD (ice) is used to treat injuries or conditions that are red, hot, inflamed, swollen and suffering from tissue damage (a tear or recovering from surgery). Cold therapy is a natural / organic pain reliever that numbs pain right at the source of your injury. While doing this the cold also stops cellular break-down and reduces the amount of scar tissue forming (this is very important after surgery).


Cold can Make Your Knee Injury Worse - How?

Applying cold can restrict blood flow and stiffen / tighten soft tissue. Cold is NOT a good treatment method for your knee when the tissue is already tight and constricted, because the cold will just stiffen the tissue further.

If you feel you have contricted or tight tissue, you should use a therapy that will increase blood flow instead - like Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®). Increasing blood flow at this time will help to relieve any tightness or stiffness. BFST® used at this time will also help to relax / elongate your tissue making it much more pliable for activity.

 


When Should You Use Cold to Treat Your Knee Pain?

Cold compression works best to relieve pain, swelling and inflammation for new injuries, re-injury and during immediate post surgery recovery. Cold therapy should also be used during the first 24 - 72 hours of treatment, combined with resting your injury.

Cold should be used for new injuries or right after re-injury.

If you've been suffering for some time with a chronic knee injury you should only use cold after activity causes you more pain or triggers more inflammatory response symptoms (red, hot, inflamed, swollen). This would be when your knee starts to hurt at the end of the day after you've been on your feet, active in athletics, or performing any other tasks that has put a lot of weight or stress on your knee. When used at this time cold compression becomes a natural / organic pain reliever, treating the site where you feel the pain.

Get consistent cold compression with one of our Freezie Wraps.

Sometimes we feel pain while doing a certain activity - should you still use cold? Too much cold therapy can reduce your ability to heal correctly, because cold is a short term pain reliever not a deep tissue healer.

We put milk in the fridge so it will stay fresh longer. We do this so it will stay in the same condition as when we bought it. Your injury is no different. Too much cold will keep your injury in the same state - slowing down the healing process. This can sometimes make chronic injuries linger even longer. Heat (Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy) should be used when you suffer from a chronic, tight or stiff knee injury and after you reduce swelling, pain and inflammation with cold.

Here are a couple of examples for when to use cold (ice):

You have an ACL (anterior crucial ligament) injury that's been on-going for quite some time.

You're having a "good day" (your injury is feeling fine) and decide to walk the dog a few extra blocks for a longer route. You realize afterwards that was a bad idea because your knee is throbbing and even more painful than the day before.

You should use COLD on your ACL to stop additional tearing or damage in your ligament and help ease the pain.

 

You previously suffered from a sprain in your patellar tendon.

Now you're trying to bring your vaccum cleaner up a set of stairs in your house to clean your bedroom. You forgot about your injury but realize it's there when you try carry, push or pull the vacuum up the stairs with you... Flexing and putting weight on your knee just reminded you of the sprain, and now you feel a dull ache in your knee. You stop and ask someone else to bring the vacuum upstairs for you (you stopped the activity that will cause more tearing in your patellar tendon). The pain was temporary and is now gone which means NO cold compression is needed.

In this case heat (Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy) should be used to relieve the dull ache in your patellar tendon and encourage healing of your damaged tissue.

 

It's crucial to use cold after any sort of activity causes you on-going pain.

 

When is Ice too Cold?
When are Blue Gel Packs not Cold Enough?

using cold for pain relief

Ice is frozen water. That might sound like a silly statement - but water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit and becomes a solid. Using ice straight out of your freezer may drop the ice to a chilling 10.4 degrees Fahrenheit. If you put something that cold on your skin (below freezing) the extreme icy cold will start to damage your cells and may burn your skin (this is something called 'cryoburn').

Ice is also a solid, making the surface hard and rigid. When you're in pain, placing a rock hard block of ice onto a painful area causes a totally uncomfortable feeling. Sometimes you'll have to hold your knee in weird angles in order to get the ice in the exact right place where you need the cold most.

Ice is freezing cold when it hits your skin, this is too cold for effective cold compression therapy.

Traditional blue gel packs contain dyes and anti-freeze (a very harsh toxic chemical). With so many chemicals it's impossible for these packs to freeze at all. They only cool down a little instead of getting to cold enough temperatures for effective treatment. Without the ability to freeze how is the temperature going to provide you with the cold you need to help you? After you pull it out of the freezer is it going to actually stay cold as long as you need it? Is it safe? Liquid gel will pool away from your injury in the bottom of the bag when you put pressure on your knee - not providing you with cold coverage where you need it most.

using cold for pain relief

The problem is, up until now there hasn't been another option to treat knee injuries, so ice and traditional ice packs have been the only choice. 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.

We've designed a cold compression wrap that gets you the cold you need, holding the cold in place over your knee and reaching cold enough temperatures for effective treatment without running the risk of burning your skin (cryoburn).


What Makes the Knee Freezie Wrap® Different?
Get consistent cold compression with our Knee Freezie Wrap.

This is where the Knee Freezie Wrap® stands apart. Our gel packs are made with a food-grade PVC shell, food-grade non-toxic gel, there are no dyes or chemicals and they're FDA approved medical devices.

The coolest part about the Freezie Wrap® is the patented gel formulation that allows millions of tiny snowflakes to form inside the gel when chilled. This network of cold snowflakes in the gel gives you 3 times more cold therapy than any other traditional blue gel pack available on the market today.

Every Knee Freezie Wrap® comes with 3 very large packs of gel that weigh about 1.5 lbs each to fit inside the soft neoprene shell. That's truly stunning when compared to most other wraps on the market that weigh in at only about 1lb or less... including the wrap!


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

 

Get consistent cold compression with our Freezie Wraps.

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 knee, you also limit the amount of healing that needs to occur. This is a very important step to heal knee injuries faster and with less pain!


Effective Cold Compression Therapy = the Freezie Wrap®

 

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 a Freezie Wrap® can get the swelling & inflammation in your knee under control! After you get rid of the swelling for good you can start dealing with your knee injury and on-going pain head on.


Use a Cold Compression Knee Freezie Wrap®:

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

How Do You Use Heat / Warm Temperatures to Heal Your Knee?


Heat should be used for older, chronic injuries or when your knee feels stiff and strained.

HEAT (warmth) is used after you've reduced your swelling / inflammation and the sharp pain is less intense (you have more of a dull / nagging ache and soft tissue tightness in your knee). Warming up your tissue is a natural way to encourage healing of your deep tissue. Increasing the temperature of your deep tissue will result in increased blood flow circulation. It's the blood in your body that will bring oxygen, nutrients, antibodies and energy to your injured knee to help with healing.


Heat can Make Inflammation, Swelling and Newer Injuries Worse - How?

When we injure ourselves, we start healing right away. The body will naturally raise the temperature at the site of the injury resulting in the inflammatory response (redness, heat sensation, inflammation and swelling). This 'fake fever' leaks blood flow to the area to cool it down and start the healing process.

Adding 'heat' to the injured tissue in your knee when it's already inflamed and tender may make your body think there's a new threat to your tissue and increase the pain in order to get you to stop. For some people applying heat on inflamed / swollen tissue will cause the injury to swell-up even more (as much as 3 times larger than normal). You'll feel even more pain as the pressure builds in your knee.

Heat is NOT a good treatment method for inflamed soft tissue injuries, new injuries (within the first 24 to 72 hours), right after surgery or right after a re-injury (over-use and/or sharp, throbbing pain). In these cases, heat should be applied later on in the healing cycle. In the meantime, cold compression with a Knee Freezie Wrap® should be used to decrease any inflammation induced pain.

 

When Should You Use Heat to Heal Your Knee?

Heat / warming temperature treatment works best to increase blood flow circulation and stimulate healing for older (chronic) injuries, re-injury (after swelling has been reduced) and during long-term post surgery recovery. Warmer temperatures should be used approximately 3 to 5 days after you first have the injury. Heat should not be started for a least 2 weeks after surgery because inflammation levels will be very high as the healing process starts over again. Any use of heat should also be combined with gradual movement to stretch out your knee and increase range of motion.

Increase blood flow in and around your knee with a Knee Inferno Wrap.

If you have a chronic knee injury that keeps getting re-injured you should use heat before activity to loosen up your tissue (making it more flexible). When used at this time the warm temperatures naturally extend the elasticity (elastic-nature) of the soft tissue in and around your knee, making it more movable / pliable for activity.

Sometimes we feel pain while doing a certain activity - should you still use heat? Using heat in the morning before you start your day or before activity can help to boost the healing process and reduce your risk of re-injury. Too much heat (especially when you suffer a set-back with swelling / inflammation) can make your inflammation worse. Cold compression with a Freezie Wrap® should be used part-way through your day when you suffer from on-going pain and inflammation as a natural pain-reliever.

Using heat is a good long-term plan because it will help to stimulate healing and can also be used on a preventive basis to relax constricted soft tissue. We use warm temperatures / heat to speed up the process of baking something in the oven or melting the snow outside, your injury is no different. Heat will speed up the natural healing rate in your knee by increasing your blood flow circulation. This in turn brings all the components your tissue needs to heal - oxygen, nutrients, anti-bodies and energy.

Here are a couple of examples for when to use warm temperatures (heat):

Get Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy with an Inferno Wrap.
  • You had a meniscus tear 2 years ago but that injury has healed and you no longer feel pain everyday. You just went to a new fitness / aerobics class and notice your knee feels stiff the day after your first class. There's no pain, inflammation or swelling, just stiffness / soreness where your old injury was. You should use HEAT (Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy) on your knee before you work out to loosen up your soft tissue. Heat can be used again the next day if you notice any residual stiffness. If the stiffness remains, you should continue to use heat to make sure your old meniscus injury doesn't get worse.

  • You occasionally feel sharp shooting pain under your knee cap that goes down your shin. You're not sure if you have an injury, but the pain seems to come and go only when you're on your feet for an extended period of time or walking, jogging, jumping or running. When you feel the sharp pain, the pain will continue to build up and afterwards your knee may feel weak or unstable. In this case cold compression with a Knee Freezie Wrap® should be used as a natural pain-reliever. The cold compression will also decrease the amount of damage being done to your soft tissue. Rest may also be needed by avoiding the activities that make your knee pain worse.

Keep using Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy before activity and when you notice any stiffness in your knee to 'warm up' your tissue and stimulate healing.

 

When is Heat too Hot?
When are Other Heating methods not Hot Enough?
Hot water bottles are awkward to use and don't penetrate the heat deep enough for effective treatment.

Hot water bottles, hot baths / showers and other heating methods have been used to soothe sore joints and soft tissue forever. The problem with using traditional heating devices is that the low-level energy gets too hot for our skin but not hot enough for the deep tissue in our knees.

Your skin is like your armor - it's a protective shield. This means the heat energy needs to pass through your protective shield to reach deep enough into the tissue to promote blood flow for healing. Turning up the heat with hot water bottles, hot baths or other heating methods that heat up the skin first means we're trying to push the energy inside by force. It's just like when you use your oven to bake a cake for 45 minutes. The heat energy starts cooking the cake on the outside to work it's way in. You have to stick a toothepick in the cake to know when the inside's done.

Applying therapy that heats your skin first will make your skin feel too hot before the heat even penetrates deep into your knee.

Using heat when the energy is only pushing into the top layers of the skin won't give you deep tissue healing. In this case, the blood is actually rushing AWAY from your knee to the surface of your skin. This makes you really FEEL the heat.

If you feel the heat is the therapy really helping you on deep tissue level? NO, feeling the heat means it's only warming your outter layers of skin - much like baking a cake. There's even a condition for overuse of a skin-level heat source called toasted skin syndrome, hot water bottle rash, fire stains, laptop thigh, or granny's tartan (reference: 1).


What Makes the Knee Inferno Wrap® Different?

This is where the Inferno Wrap® is a wholesome healer!

Instead of having the heat energy force itself into your body by heating up the skin first, the Knee Inferno Wrap® emits an electromagnetic energy that penetrates deep into your tissue creating the heat right down in your injured tissue. This means that instead of using an oven to cook a cake from the outside in, you're using another method to cook the cake evenly from the inside out. After the timer's up you know your cake is fully-cooked without having to use a toothpick to check!

Increase your blood flow circulation with our BFST Inferno Wraps.

What exactly has changed the way heat therapy works? With modern medical advancements electromagnetic energy is used to generate deep tissue heat for healing with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®).

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 injury, increasing the blood flow right in your soft tissue.

With regular use of the Knee Inferno Wrap®:

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

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


Use a BFST® Knee Inferno Wrap®:

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

A Summary of How Ice & Heat Affect Your Blood Flow


Imagine you're standing in your living room at home. When the air in that room is at normal room temperature (ambient temperature), your body is in a comfortable state. Your heart rate and blood pressure are normal (or whatever 'normal' is for you').

Imagine the air has cooled down to freezing...

Applying cold constricts your blood vessels decreasing fluid retention and swelling in your knee.

When the room becomes cooler your heart rate begins to slow down and your blood pressure increases. Your body does this automatically to retain heat in your body. At this time your soft tissue will also start to squeeze on and contract all of the veins in your body carrying blood flow. This also helps to decrease the amount of blood flowing throughout your circulatory system and retains the heat.

When cold is applied to a knee injury, all of your soft tissue will squeeze on the veins to slow down your blood flow. This in turn clamps down on the amount of fluid leaking into your injured tissue, decreasing your swelling. This is why cold is used immediately to treat newer knee injuries or re-injuries. The cold slows down your body to stop the amount of damage happening to your tissue and decrease your swelling. This cold also has a nice side benefit of numbing the nerves in and around your knee injury thereby decreasing your pain.

In the medical world this is something called 'Vasoconstriction'.

Now, imagine the air has warmed up enough that you start sweating...

Applying heat expands your blood vessels increasing blood flow to your knee injury.

When the room becomes warmer your heart rate speeds up and your blood pressure decreases. Your body is trying to increase your blood flow to cool down your body.

When heat is applied to your knee, your veins will start to get bigger (expand) to allow more blood flow through to your damaged or torn soft tissue. This in turn relaxes your knee, making the tissue more flexible and elastic. This is why heat is used on older (chronic) injuries, to loosen tissue and bring in the blood flow needed for healing. Your body will begin to heal itself after its' injured. Increasing your blood flow with heat will actually speed up this natural process.

Doctors usually call this process 'Vasodilation'.



Some other things happen when you're hot and cold...

When you're cold you'll start to shiver and your fingers, nose and/or toes will get coldest first. This again, is your body trying to retain the heat so all major organs can still function. When you're hot you'll start to sweat. Sweating is the body's natural way of cooling itself down.


Knowing when to use hot and cold and which is better for your blood flow is easy when you remember how your body reacts to cold weather vs hot weather. Both temperatures are helpful for natural injury healing when used at the right time in the healing cycle.



How to Use Consistent Deep Tissue Stretching to Improve Knee Strength & Health


Stretch your knee to boost healing.

For many people, the treatment won't just end there. Stretching is also an important part of tendon healing - and it's the final step needed when healing your knee injury with conservative treatment methods.

You would be suprised by how many people there are that don't understand the importance of stretching a knee injury. Before returning to full activity after an injury, physical therapists prescribe gentle stretching... This is because stretching is the secret of healing any soft tissue injury. Consistent stretching is one of the only solutions available to break up scar tissue that forms on your knee as it heals.

Stretching with use of a Freezie Wrap® and Inferno Wrap® is even better!



Stretching your knee with a Knee-Flex® is
even more powerful when combined with:

  • A Deep Tissue Therapeutic Knee Inferno Wrap® to increase elasticity of tissue and stimulate blood flow before stretching.
  • A Professional Cold Compression Knee Freezie Wrap® to reduce pain and inflammation stretching.
 

There is a Unique Formula used for Knee Injury Recovery...

We're going to let you in on a key piece of information... In every physical therapy appointment your physical therapist will use conservative treatments, massage, manual manipulation and/or stretching exercises to give you this Professional 3-Step Treatment Formula:


Step 1 - Warm Up Your Knee

Physical therapists will warm up your muscle by performing deep tissue massage.

For this 1st step many physical therapists will use heat, manual manipulation, deep tissue massage, clinical ultrasound devices or a warm bath to warm up your knee. The goal during this first step is to increase healthy blood flow circulation and relax your soft tissue.

'Warming up' your knee will increase the elastic-nature of your soft tissue fibers making it much easier to stretch and when needed, hold the stretch. This will also extend the amount that you will be able to stretch your knee.


Increase Your Blood Flow Circulation at Home

The Perfect BFST Knee Wrap

Use a Knee Inferno Wrap® for 15 to 20 minutes at least half an hour before stretching your knee. An Inferno Wrap® will promote Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) - a therapy that will increase the blood flow to your knee while warming up and relaxing your injured tissue. BFST® will make your soft tissue fibers more elastic and pliable, allowing for more ease of movement when you're stretching and/or exercising.

Continued treatment with BFST® will also deliver much-needed oxygen, nutrients, antibodies and energy to your knee. This will boost your own natural healing ability and speed up your time for recovery.


Step 2 - Stretch Your Knee

After your knee is warmed up your physical therapist will guide you through stretches to improve mobility.

The main goal of physical therapy is to exercise (stretch out) your knee to improve flexibility and range of motion. After the physical therapist has warmed up your soft tissue, they'll get you to do a series of exercises that are focused on stretching the area and surrounding soft tissue.

This exercise may include heel slides that are focused on moving your knee, quadriceps, groin, hip, hamstring, calf, shin and Achilles tendon.

Sometimes cardiovascular exercise, like using a stationary bike or treadmill, will be recommended under the supervision of your physical therapist.


Improve Your Range of Motion at Home

The Knee-Flex® can be used to perform consistent stretching that's beneficial to all of the tendons, ligaments and muscles in and around your knee joint. Start off with 10 repititions of the Knee-Flex® stretch at least once everyday. Increase your repititions as the movement becomes more fluid and natural for you.

Amazing Stretching with Knee-Flex

You can easily modify these stretches to further work out specific soft tissue in your knee and leg by pointing your toe forward when sliding your heel out, away from your body. You can then flex your foot up (pointing your toe to the cieling) when flexing your knee and bringing your heel back toward your body. Pointing your toe forward and backward will activate stretching in the soft tissue in your knee and all of the surrounding muscles in your leg (quadriceps, hamstring). When stretching your knee it's important to also develop the surrounding soft tissue in your leg as they will be taking on some of the work that your knee can't handle. Strengthening your entire leg will also give you a better chance of slowly improving the mobility of your knee.

Why are knee injuries so hard to over come? In two words - scar tissue.

Scar tissue builds in your knee as the tears heal. The build up causes pain and inflexibility making your knee more prone to further injury.

Soft tissue is meant to be soft and flexiable, ready to work and move extreme forces in everyday activities. A sprain, tear, or stain in your knee will heal with scar tissue; little tiny band-aids that overlap each other on the tissue mending the injury. With the added scar tissue the soft tissue in your knee becomes rigid, less ready to move and unable to recieve the full force of your movements. If you're suffering with scar tissue now you may feel the effects with stiffness, tightness, weakness and tiredness in your knee.

Scar tissue can form fast to bring together the edges of a tear, but working fast doesn't mean that the job's done right. When scar tissue forms it doesn't come together as neatly as regular (healthy) tissue would. Scar tissue fibers will lay down over top of your tear in a cluttered, messy and jumbled up way.

Imagine throwing a bunch of drinking straws in the air... When those straws hit the ground they'll land in a random, unorganized way. It even seems silly to think that those straws could land perfectly straight and all in the same direction.

Stretching helps to organize the scar tissue, increasing the strength of this tissue so it's more like the weave of a basket.


Step 3 - Cool Down Your Knee

Toward the end of your appointment your physical therapist may introduce cold compression, acupuncture, or TENS to relax your knee after the intense stretching and exercise.


Relieve Your Knee Pain & Swelling at Home

Knee Injury Cold Compression Treatment

Use a Knee Freezie Wrap® after using your Knee-Flex®, stretching your knee, or whenever you feel sharp pain. The Freezie Wrap® will relieve any on-going pain and swelling while preventing full-blown inflammation from returning after your stretching.

Start with a 20 minute treatment directly after activity and apply more cold compression whenever you need to relieve pain and inflammation in your knee.

Every Knee Freezie Wrap® has non-migrating RigiGel® that keeps the cold over your knee where it's needed most. With 3 extra large gel packs you also have the ability to swap out gel packs to extend your post-stretch cool down however long you need it.



Our Knee Therapy Formula is

It may seem hard to believe, but our Knee Freezie Wrap® and Inferno Wrap® home therapy products will assist you in recovering from your injury by reducing your swelling and inflammation induced pain and maximizing blood flow where it's needed most.

Dear MendMeShop,

My knee is completely healed and I am back more than 100%. I had surgery on that knee several years ago and it had not been very flexible since then. Between the ice wrap and the inferno wrap, my knee is better than it was before I injured it this time. I had been to the doctor and had scheduled an MRI about the time I ordered the ice and Inferno wraps. I kept moving the MRI date up because I could tell my knee was beginning to heal. I cancelled my MRI appointment a couple of weeks ago and I am back to my full workout schedule. Thank you so much for such a wonderful product. I tell everyone who will listen how great your product is and the excellent results I received. I still use both products every day. I have arthritis in my right shoulder and will be ordering the shoulder wraps in the near future. Again, thank you for a product that has saved me hundreds maybe even thousands of dollars had surgery been the result of the MRI, not to mention the risks associated with surgery. I am a lifelong fan! Thank you! Jerie

Dear MendMeShop,

I found the Freezie and Inferno Wraps very effective - my knee is much better now. I was able to discontinue use of the Inferno some weeks ago because of the improvement. However, knees being what they are, I expect that sooner or later I will twist something and have pain. It is just a matter of time before my active lifestyle catches up to me. When it does, I will get out the Cold wrap then switch off to the Inferno again.

Dear MendMeShop,

My husband, who is in his 50's was feeling pain in his Achilles on one foot. He kept walking on it till it became inflamed and impossible to walk on. My husband sought out help from our Chiropractor, the treatments were very expensive and he could only get one a day. He couldn't walk on it at all. Just moving any part of his body caused him great pain. Going to see anyone would prove unworkable. I couldn't get him in the car as he could not even move his leg. I researched Achilles tendon injury on line. I found an article about the Inferno Wrap. The cost would be far less than trips to the Doctor. It was only a matter of days before he was able to get out of bed once we started the treatments as recommended. It was a week and he was off the crutches. He was able to get back to work after three weeks. He still uses the inferno boot when his Achilles feels sore. I am very grateful for your products and highly recommend them.

Dear MendMeShop,

I still am amazed at how the inferno wrap helped! I don't remember if I told you this, but about 20 years ago I had orthoscopic surgery on my knee. It never got back to normal. Lost a lot of flexibility in that knee and suffered with pain mostly at night. Thought it was arthritis. It felt out of joint and I was painful to straighten it at night. And when I would get up out of bed or after sitting for awhile I would have to "ease" into position to be able to walk on it. Last fall, I injured my knee in the garden. It was very painful to bear weight on it. In fact I was scooting around the house in an office chair on wheels. The doctor said the 'popping' in my knee was due to out-of-place ligament from the orthoscopic surgery. I started using the inferno wrap and ice wrap alternatively and still can't believe how fast my knee heeled. I no longer use either. About a week ago I started doing water aerobics and it feels soooo good! I do have a lot of arthritis, and it's bone-on-bone. However the pain in straightening that knee is no longer there! All those years of pain seem more like a bad dream! It's wonderful to be able to get up from sitting and move freely! Now my goal is to strengthen my knee with exercise. Thank you so much for the wraps!

Dear MendMeShop,

A couple of years ago I helped my husband cut firewood on a hillside. I began to experience pain in my Achilles tendon shortly after we had finished getting all of the firewood cut, split and stacked. I limped through the winter and in the spring began to worry that I wouldn't be able to take care of my gardens. I finally went to the doctor and was prescribed physical therapy. The PT did help with the pain but didn't really "cure" the problem. I continued home physical therapy for another year and began to research therapies to help the tendon. I wanted to avoid surgery if possible. I came across the MendMeShop website and read about the products recommended for Achilles tendon. The cost seemed minimal compared to what I had already spent at the doctor and physical therapist. I ordered the Inferno Wrap and the Freezie Wrap for the ankle and used them according to the directions. I felt great pain relief and the flexibility in my Achilles returned within a few weeks of treatments. I have also been using a night splint following my last Inferno Wrap night treatment before retiring. With that regimen, I have been able to avoid a surgical tendon correction and have been able to resume my normal busy activities. Thank you MendMeShop for your great products and customer service follow-up of the shipment of products.

Dear MendMeShop,

I'm 52 & in fairly good shape, I mountain bike for hours - at least twice a week. I kayak offshore for hours twice a week. I also snorkle & work out. So when my son invited me to play paint ball, my leg muscles were strong enough to do what my mind told them...to a point where my left leg (the one that got bent backwards playing little league baseball 29 years ago) became so painful the next day. I was shocked & amazed how I had gone from in great shape to a hobbling old man. A bit of research I re-learned hot before & cold after a workout/activity. Cold packs are cheap at the drug store & heat pads are too, but destroyed a few of these in the microwave oven to heat. I found the frozen packs seemed a bit too much & the heat pads ether nearly burned me or wasn't hot enough to get deep. I then went back & ordered your hot & cold products AND MY PRODUCTS GOT HERE IN MAUI IN TWO DAYS ARRIVING ASTONISHINGLY ON A SATURDAY !!!! I now heat up both my knees before a workout or just as good treatment & cool 'em down after. I feel like I'm 99% better but I'll continue to use these products as I feel it'll keep me from getting a knee injury. The relief is so wonderful...I paddle for hours and I have no issues.

Dear MendMeShop,

You guys are tremendous. I've purchased 3 items from you and have told many others about you. I was overwhelmed by your speed and thoroughness regarding my problem. Everything is working just fine with the new Knee wrap. Thanks again.

Dear MendMeShop,

MendMe products are the Cadillac of at-home treatment options. They are robustly constructed to provide superior heat or cold contact to the injured area and the fit is incredibly precise and adaptable. My husband and I use them repeatedly as typical ageing athletes with lots of old injuries. I have loaned them to friends on my paddle tennis team and everyone raves. Yes, they cost a bit more but save untold thousands in visits to chiropractors, physical therapists and doctors. We are among the sites biggest fans.
