Running Knee Injury Specialists are Friendly and Helpful.

Dear MendMeShop,

I’ve been recommending your Knee Inferno Wrap! I’m getting better! I really didn’t notice much difference until about a month of using this twice a day. But now I’m really feeling so much better. Last weekend I walked 3 miles. I couldn’t walk 3 blocks a few months ago without pain and swelling of my knee. I’m happy to say I won’t be needing surgery. Thank you.

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,

So far so good. After using a variety of ice packs there is no comparison in comfort and success of reducing swelling in the affected areas with these “Freezie Wraps”. We will continue to use them and let you know how it goes!

Dear MendMeShop,

Have been using the knee wrap for about 5 days & it has actually already made a difference. First, there is a lot less pain when walking and secondly the external knee temperature (feeling by hand- not very scientific) is now almost the same for both knees. When I started with the wrap the right knee was obviously the hotter knee indicating inflammation, I guess. I have been using the wrap three times a day for 20 minutes on and at least two hours off with at least 15 minutes each day on the stationary bike. I'm retired & have the time. The wrap seems really well made which it should considering the price and it is large enough to fit the largest knee. I also like the three temperature levels and certainly the built in 20 minute shut off.

Dear MendMeShop,

I've had the Inferno Wrap for knees just one week. I could feel a big difference in just a few days. It seemed like surgery was the only option, but now I'm pretty sure my knees will heal. I'm using it faithfully 2-3 x/day. Amazing! Your telephone support was excellent too. I called before the wraps arrived, and was given good information and guidance. Thank you!! Virginia

Dear MendMeShop,

I purchased the Inferno wrap and Freezie wrap to treat a chronic Achilles tendonosis (MICROSCOPIC TEARS OF THE TENDON AT THE INSERTION). During the later part of 2008 I was experiencing a lot of tight muscle and tendons and usually working out (running) tired and not properly warmed up and limber. I started the new year with good intention and determined to work on stretching that included following a home yoga program. I am familiar with yoga but admit that I was too aggressive with the stretching that comes from the 'downward dog' position. I believe this aggravated an already existing condition in the Achilles insertion area, this combined with the stress of a late January 5KM road race caused enough pain in the Achilles tendon to force me to discontinue running. I sought medical attention from my family physician who referred me to physiotherapy. Through the early stage of therapy I continued to do regular bike workouts. Unfortunately the pain increased to the point that I had to stop both running and cycling. I attended physiotherapy for just over two months going once a week receiving massage to the injured area, ultrasound, cortisone by patch and ice. I was religious in following the gentle stretching and strengthening routine at home between physio visits. After these two months with little improvement they released me with the instruction to continue with the stretching, strength exercises and ice. I was still in pain and could not run or cycle without causing further damage, walking was painful. I search for other solutions and found the information on the MendMeShop web site. Although skeptical, I purchased the wraps out of desperation, received the product, read all the literature for use and started into a daily routine. Within 7 days I started to experience a reduction in the constant pain. Within 9 days I was walking without a constant reminder of the injury. I tried doing a ride and although the short 13 mile ride was enjoyable I started to feel the injury flair up again. The injury is not completely healed but the progress I am experiencing gives me hope that with a continued discipline of home treatment using the products, gentle stretching and the use of wearing a brace on my foot while sleeping to prevent the tendon from retracting, will in time bring about the full healthy healing of the injured area. I have found that you really have to be in tune with what you are feeling during the gentle stretching and often back off the stretch so as not to cause repetitive injury to the already weakened area of the Achilles insertion.

Dear MendMeShop,

I have been using the inferno and freezie on my knee (torn meniscus) for several weeks now and have been very happy with the results. Less pain and less inflammation. I have been using the inferno before a work out and up to 3 times a day. I use the freezie after my work out or if I feel my knee is inflamed. I am very pleased that I found your advertisement on my facebook page. I have tell everyone about this product and I can't imagine how my knee will feel in another month. I also use it on my other knee for arthritis. It seems to help. Thanks again and I will continue to endorse your product. Because I believe it works. I showed my physical therapist your product and he was impressed. Yours truly Jacenta Friesen

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 "Aid My Tendon", I am so happy I found your company when I did an "achilles tendon" search on the internet. The kit has been a Godsend and I can use it in my own home and when it is convenient for me. So far it has given me amazing results. When it starts to flare up again (usually because I have worn the "wrong" shoes) I just go to work on it with the Inferno Wrap. Thanks for making these products available to the public. Yours truly, Glenna

Dear MendMeShop,

What I can report is that the treatments make a difference. I have a bone spur. My routine is to start at 6:00 am because in the morning is when it hurts the most. I have discovered a way to wrap my foot with both the planter ligament wrap and the Achilles tendon wrap at the same time. I do the cold for 20 minutes, let it rest for 20 minutes, then do the hot for 20 minutes. While the pain does not go away, it does go from excruciating to tolerable. Each day I'm able to do a little more in the way of household chores I am even starting to go swimming again. I look out at the garden and dream of the day I can get back to work there. I told my podiatrist about your product and he said that is exactly what he wants me to do, cold then hot, plenty of water. He asked for information about your products, so I am taking it with me at my next visit. So, yes, all in all, I am happy with your product. But mostly I am pleased with your company. Like this letter for example, I am sure that you have hundreds of customers, but you make me feel like I'm the only one, or the most important. I feel like you care that I am experiencing pain and you want your product to help me. I wish you much success with your business. Yours Truly, Peggy *Update* Peggy emailed us 3 weeks after her first comments with a promising update: My bone spur has improved to the point that I use the treatments only once a day in the morning, with an occasional treatment in the evening after dinner. And there are days when there is no pain at all throughout the day!!

Dear MendMeShop,

Last spring, I aggravated an old injury in my right knee and was in pain. My brother-in-law had mentioned he recovered from knee inflammation using the Knee Inferno wrap. 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 Inferno wrap this time so that I would be prepared in the years to come. I am experiencing relief already and I am very grateful! Thank you, Dana Jagoda

I purchased the Knee Inferno Wrap to compliment my MCL recovery program. I believe the Knee Inferno Wrap product greatly aided in the healing process and accelerated my ability to regain functionality in the knee joint by utilizing it regularly during the early days of my recovery.

Dear MendMeShop,

In February of this year, I injured my knee while exercising. Since I lost my health benefits through my job due to the economy, I wasn't able to afford a professional diagnosis. The outside area of my left knee was swollen, stiff and painful and I could not put any weight on that area. After mowing my lawn, gardening, exercising or any other physical activity the swelling, stiffness and pain were much worse. I was using a bag of frozen crinkle cut carrots attached by a rubber band around my knee to help alleviate the pain & swelling - not a very high tech solution! I searched online to find what if anything I could do myself to rehab and repair my injury and thankfully I found your web site. From the information your site provided, I determined I had a torn meniscus as the symptoms associated with that were exactly what I was experiencing. I ordered the Knee Therapy Kit, received it in less than one week and began using the kit immediately. It has now been 7 days since I started using the kit and I have already noticed results. My swelling has gone down, the pain is gone and the stiffness is occasional instead of constant. I am so delighted with these results as I am very active and this knee problem was really affecting my lifestyle. Not only that, but I was looking forward to doing a lot of surfing this summer and I am excited as I believe I will be able to without any problems! I will be telling everyone about your web site and products and that is saying a lot because it is rare and refreshing for me to find products that work so well. I'm obviously rating this 5 out of 5 stars!

Dear MendMeShop,

I used the Inferno wrap diligently for weeks and my knee felt much better. (I did find out I have a torn meniscus as well as an edema on my right knee). Of course, the doctor recommended surgery, which I am trying to avoid. I was feeling much better and went back to line dancing with some pain, but kept going. I now think I went back too soon and I was feeling like I may have injured it further, so I was using the Inferno wrap 4 times a day again. I feel I should have kept on using the wrap more often and not been in such a hurry to get back to dancing. I am totally sold on the Inferno wrap. I purchased one for my achilles heel problem and it has helped it also. I am one satisfied customer.

Dear MendMeShop,

I bought the knee wrap for my husband and he has gotten significant relief from it. He only uses it occasionally now but used it every day for the first couple of months and felt it helped greatly. I have one of your other products which I use on my hip (which I believe has bursitis). It has been a godsend. I used it a lot in the beginning and now only have to use it once in a while--esp when there is a low front going through which usually aggravates my hip and my knee and my husband's knee. Thank you for your wonderful products.

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.

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.

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

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 would like you to know that after landing on my left knee sharply enough to merit two weeks on crutches 12 weeks ago, I am now 95% better. The knee isn't fully recovered in strength, but it is pain free and able to go up and down stairs normally now and in general work as it should. Deep knee bends aren't a recommended activity just yet, though it is comfortable to do that motion at some times but not at others. In any event, your inferno wrap was part of my recovery process, and I feel a very important one! Between the information on your website and the wrap – and the RICE! - I seem to have healed far better than I originally expected, though it has taken time and patience, and I was cautious so as not to re-injure it! Thank you. Just wanted you to know!

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 purchased the Inferno wrap and Freezie wrap to treat a chronic Achilles tendonosis (MICROSCOPIC TEARS OF THE TENDON AT THE INSERTION). During the later part of 2008 I was experiencing a lot of tight muscle and tendons and usually working out (running) tired and not properly warmed up and limber. I started the new year with good intention and determined to work on stretching that included following a home yoga program. I am familiar with yoga but admit that I was too aggressive with the stretching that comes from the 'downward dog' position. I believe this aggravated an already existing condition in the Achilles insertion area, this combined with the stress of a late January 5KM road race caused enough pain in the Achilles tendon to force me to discontinue running. I sought medical attention from my family physician who referred me to physiotherapy. Through the early stage of therapy I continued to do regular bike workouts. Unfortunately the pain increased to the point that I had to stop both running and cycling. I attended physiotherapy for just over two months going once a week receiving massage to the injured area, ultrasound, cortisone by patch and ice. I was religious in following the gentle stretching and strengthening routine at home between physio visits. After these two months with little improvement they released me with the instruction to continue with the stretching, strength exercises and ice. I was still in pain and could not run or cycle without causing further damage, walking was painful. I search for other solutions and found the information on the MendMeShop web site. Although skeptical, I purchased the wraps out of desperation, received the product, read all the literature for use and started into a daily routine. Within 7 days I started to experience a reduction in the constant pain. Within 9 days I was walking without a constant reminder of the injury. I tried doing a ride and although the short 13 mile ride was enjoyable I started to feel the injury flair up again. The injury is not completely healed but the progress I am experiencing gives me hope that with a continued discipline of home treatment using the products, gentle stretching and the use of wearing a brace on my foot while sleeping to prevent the tendon from retracting, will in time bring about the full healthy healing of the injured area. I have found that you really have to be in tune with what you are feeling during the gentle stretching and often back off the stretch so as not to cause repetitive injury to the already weakened area of the Achilles insertion.

Dear MendMeShop,

In February of this year, I injured my knee while exercising. Since I lost my health benefits through my job due to the economy, I wasn't able to afford a professional diagnosis. The outside area of my left knee was swollen, stiff and painful and I could not put any weight on that area. After mowing my lawn, gardening, exercising or any other physical activity the swelling, stiffness and pain were much worse. I was using a bag of frozen crinkle cut carrots attached by a rubber band around my knee to help alleviate the pain & swelling - not a very high tech solution! I searched online to find what if anything I could do myself to rehab and repair my injury and thankfully I found your web site. From the information your site provided, I determined I had a torn meniscus as the symptoms associated with that were exactly what I was experiencing. I ordered the Knee Therapy Kit, received it in less than one week and began using the kit immediately. It has now been 7 days since I started using the kit and I have already noticed results. My swelling has gone down, the pain is gone and the stiffness is occasional instead of constant. I am so delighted with these results as I am very active and this knee problem was really affecting my lifestyle. Not only that, but I was looking forward to doing a lot of surfing this summer and I am excited as I believe I will be able to without any problems! I will be telling everyone about your web site and products and that is saying a lot because it is rare and refreshing for me to find products that work so well. I'm obviously rating this 5 out of 5 stars!

Dear MendMeShop,

I began to have acute tendinitis in my ankle just before Thanksgiving of 2012, and I was told that it might last for 6 months. On line, I found a product from the Mend Me Shop that I thought might be helpful for my condition. I did not have any swelling, so I thought that heat would aide in healing the tendonitis. I ordered the Inferno Wrap. From the time I got it...probably after having the condition for two months with no end in sight for the severe tendonitis, I began to use the Inferno Wrap four times a day. By the end of February, my tendonitis subsided, and I was able to walk my daughter down the aisle for her wedding in March. I had been told I could have a cast or a boot to ease the pain; however, I knew that I didn't want to walk down the aisle in a cast or a boot. After the treatments with the Inferno Wrap, I had no problems with pain. I give Mend Me Shop and the Inferno Wrap credit for ending my pain, so that I was able to walk my daughter down the aisle on March 23

Dear MendMeShop,

I am always amazed by companies who still deliver true customer service to their clients, it blows me away. Me and my husband both have knee issues and would like to purchase additional knee wraps in the future as they truly make a difference after using them. I have recommended your website to my physical therapist for his other patients as he saw a substantial difference in my mobility and decreased usage of pain killers. Thanks again for your superior customer service and attention to detail and follow through. It is sad to say, but in this day and age those are rare qualities to find in a company. Make it a great day! Warm Regards, A.M.

Dear MendMeShop,

WOW! I'm certain that I'm going to be "hard pressed" to fully explain just how "GREAT" my personal experience has been with MendMeShop. I'm in my mid 50's......(really?....it ain't ALL that old!)........and have had many injuries in my past. The "main" injury, that caused me to seek out the information that resulted in my finding these great folks, is my right knee. I tore the meniscus, way back "yonder" in 1973. Over the years I have managed to do MORE and more damage to BOTH of my knees. WHY? Well it's because I used to "Steer Wrestle" (bulldogging). I'm here, now, to tell you that when you jump off of a running horse.....onto a running 500 pound steer.....STOP this steer, and "throw" him to the ground, well.......it's HARD on the knees!
I've had four surgeries on my right knee, and two on the left, to repair torn meniscus, ACL, and other conditions. I shattered my right ankle, in a truck/wild hog accident, in 1975, and have several screws in that one. In 1978, I shattered my right wrist....and have 3 screws in it! Over the years, I've managed to break (according to my Doc.) about 70% of the bones in this tired old body!
I ordered the Knee Inferno Wrap. This was after I re-injured my knee and was slated for surgery. Now....as a rancher, the busiest time of the year is between January 1st, and December 31st! Sometimes it is a bit more busy during the spring, summer, and fall! I simply could NOT afford to be "off" my feet for a month. So.....I limped around on crutches for several weeks and was trying to "get by" until possibly November, or so. It just so happened, that I decided to look on the Internet for some kind of "fix", and found the MendMeShop website. The rest is history!
After placing the order, I made several calls, to some Veterinarian buddies, and asked their opinion about this type of treatment. Every one of them gave me a positive report. I was extremely pleased with the shipment time. I think I had my equipment in about five days.....and I live in South Texas. That's a long ways from Canada. I started treatments immediately! Now, let me tell you this, "I can't explain "HOW" this results happened as quick as it did, BUT..... after the third treatment ... I walked out to my truck without the crutches!" That happened on the second day, in the evening! After another week and a half, I had almost ZERO pain, and NO limp! Amazed? It's like a miracle happened!
I will go so far as to say this, "If the folks at MendMeShop would allow me to buy into their business.....I WOULD!" I believe in this company with every fibre of my being. I can NOT say enough positive "stuff" about this Company and the people that operate it! They are as friendly as Texans, (that's saying something, right there folks!) and their products perform like they say! The equipment is very well built.....their guarantee is exceptional......and the price is extremely reasonable! BUT! Above all, IT WORKS! It's been about six weeks and no pain! Now, I'm not looking forward to another injury, although I know that will happen, but now..... I'm prepared! Bring it on!
One last thing, did I mention that my experience with MendMeShop was a 100% positive experience? When you talk to these folks, you'll soon learn that too! In fact, you have my word that if you use these products, for what they are intended, you will be 100% satisfied also. In my honest opinion, you'll be well satisfied...as I am!

Dear MendMeShop,

I just wanted to send a huge thank you to your company. I suffered a fully torn Achilles and unfortunately the system for retired Army officers is not very good -it was 5 weeks before I was seen by a surgeon. He was furious -- but we had to take the non surgical route. After 12 weeks I was cleared and sent to physical therapy - they were dumbfounded with my progress. I shared your products and gracefully explained I would prefer to trust my health to a process that works rather than continue to gamble with a system that is a crap shoot at best. The Doctor agreed! I love my progress and I work hard each day using the Ankle wrap heat and cold plus the knee flex. Thank you for great products - from a person who DID NOT HAVE SURGERY for a fully ruptured Achilles and the PT is dumbfounded with my progress. I am so far ahead of my surgical repaired contemporaries. This is my first testimonial and it would not occurred -- but when I lost my power connector for my heat ankle wrap it was replaced ASAP with no cost I was floored - thank you for mission impossible!!

Dear MendMeShop,

I wanted to take a minute and write to thank you so much for your extreme kindness and accommodation to help me replace my lost Inferno adapter. Your products literally do heal and can help prevent surgery. I am doing well with my Knee Freezie Wrap and my Knee Inferno Wrap. A heating pad doesn't come close to how the Inferno Wrap works. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Cheryl Dyer

Dear MendMeShop,

I had suffered (really suffered!) with Achilles Tendonitis for almost two years, and spent much time and money going to orthopedists and finally a podiatrist. That last visit made me feel there was no hope, but I decided to go on the internet and I found the MendMeShop. I read about the Inferno Wrap, and decided to call and ask more. I figured that the cost of this would be a drop in the bucket to what I'd already spent in co-pays over the past couple of years. The person at the MendMeShop was knowledgable and very helpful. She advised me on a plan of use, and offered to be a continuing resource for me. Once I received the Inferno Wrap I followed the advice I'd been given. I used it on my elevated ankle/foot three times a day for 20 minutes each time. (First applying ice for 10 minutes when my ankle was particularly swollen.) Within 3 months of faithful use, I was able to walk without pain. What a relief! And now whenever I feel the slightest indication of discomfort, I use the Inferno Wrap for 20 minutes -- sometimes twice a day. I have recommended the MendMeShop to friends without hesitation. I feel so appreciative that I found the website on the internet. I also told my primary physician about it so that he could tell other patients to try this wonderful resource. Today I'm writing from Georgia where I am visiting friends and family. Guess what I packed to come with me?! Right! My Inferno Wrap! You all met and exceeded - not just my expectations, which were pretty modest, but my hopes at a time when I felt almost desperate! My best wishes, Chris Kelsey
