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.
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!!

I purchased the Inferno and Freezie because on August 28th my life changed, I was in Florida at the beach taking my last skimboarding run when I heard the dreaded pop and hit from behind. I had in fact after an MRI 2 weeks later ruptured my Achilles [See Full Review]Tendon 100%.
I was devastated...being 50, an athlete, former track record holder, my life came to a complete standstill. I found your site from an Achilles site with Blogs and I am very grateful.
My current condition is nothing short of a miracle.
I had surgery two and half weeks ago , surgery was open to repair tendon and was one hour 20 minutes. I was placed in a hard cast with toes down for 1 week, I observed all rules and used crutches 100%.
After 1 week cast was removed then I was back in my air cast, I could put absolutely no pressure whatsoever on the repaired leg for 4 days.
I received your products and immediately used them. The inferno wrap and freezie are my favorites, I just drove home 200 miles with the inferno wrap on via a 12 volt inverter.
Last Saturday night I went out in a flip flop with the injured foot to just get used to having some weight on it. This past week i experimented with different shoes and sneakers and when I attended my second PT session all the swelling and bruising was gone and I had great side to side motion still working on stretching the achilles.
Yesterday I drove with sneakers on and walked 1.5 miles on my sons college campus with no crutch, can, etc. Today I wore docksiders and drove home another 200 miles, I am now laying in bed with the Inferno on my left foot which has the intact achilles but it is sore due to disruption of weight from injury, at the same time I have the Freezie on my repaired leg.
After reading all the stories on the internet and talking with people as well as knowing of the seriousness of this injury, I believe your products have played a key role to getting me back on my feet and my life headed back to normal 1000 times faster than the average achilles rupture patient.
Thank You so much for great products and superior service as well as unprecedented guarantee. I will let you know when I am walking normal without any limp[Close Review]

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 bo[See Full Review]th 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. [Close Review]

The knee Inferno Wrap did a lot to help me and actually got me back to walking normally.
Prior to the Inferno, I was limping really bad to the point where I probably should have gotten crutches or[See Full Review] a wheelchair because of the pain. Though I do walk normally, I still have issues with my knee and in some rare instances. I've just started thinking about doing minor exercises to keep in shape.
I do want to say thank you for the Inferno and what your company has created as a substitute for surgery for me. I was injured in September, and started using the wrap that same month, By the beginning of November I felt so much better it was incredible.
I doubt my knee is completely healed but it is a definite improvement.[Close Review]

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 duri[See Full Review]ng the early days of my recovery.
Your product did meet my personal expectations and i would recommend it to anyone seeking a solution to aid in the healing of soft tissue injuries.[Close Review]

I just LOVE your products and have great respect for a company that actually stands behind their products! GREAT JOB!!!
Customer service was FANTASTIC! They diagnosed an issue and sent out a replacement part before I could blink! The part solved [See Full Review]the problem and I'm an EXTREMELY HAPPY customer!
You folks make great stuff, ship quickly, and respond fast if I ever have any questions. You just can't do better than that!
I have had my Inferno Wrap for nine days and I love it. I noticed a small difference in only two days. I have a small tear in my meniscus and was in pain most of the time. My knee would slip a lot and it was extremely painful. After one treatment[See Full Review] I noticed the difference. I am looking forward to how much better I will get after I really use it for a period of time.[Close Review]

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

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 most[See Full Review]ly 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.
I just wanted to compliment you on what excellent, thoughtful and efficient service you have given to this customer. I have lots more trust and belief in you guys than before I called. Thanks for your help.
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 [See Full Review]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.[Close Review]

As usual, I'm quite thrilled with the latest MendMeShop products that I've purchased.
After suffering an injury to my meniscus, my knee is much better after using the Knee Inferno Wrap and the Knee Freezie Wrap for the past four weeks.
The Inferno ankle wrap & the Freezie ankle...
The Inferno ankle wrap & the Freezie ankle wrap have done wonders for me.
My foot dr did prescribe orthotics for me being that I walk on concrete floors for 9+ hrs a day.
It did take some time, but these two products have tremendously helped me w[See Full Review]ith reducing inflammation & increasing blood flow to my Achilles area which has greatly aided in the healing process.
Great products, they have both helped me out by keeping my knees healthy while i get ready for Marine corps boot camp. Thanks again! God bless
Your Knee Inferno Wrap arrived in the UK last...
Your Knee Inferno Wrap arrived in the UK last Monday and my son has been using it for the past week. He has just emailed to say it is making a great difference already and he is able to bend his knee much further than before.
He is delighted as the[See Full Review] leg feels stronger too and he will continue to use it while he under goes physio which starts tomorrow.
Fingers crossed his recovery will be quicker than expected because he has been able to use your product.
We thank you for your excellent product and will keep you updated over the following weeks.
A follow up received from Kim a few months later:
The wrap continued to do its good work and my son made a really quick recovery much to the surprise of the medical professional.
He has now returned to work with full mobility although he continues to use the wrap prior to excercise as it warms the muscles thoroughly.
I also wanted to thank you so much for something you casually mentioned. In an email, you mentioned that I might want to look into a test to see if I had one leg shorter than the other because my knee pain was gone. Guess what- you were RIGHT! I wen[See Full Review]t to an orthopaedic specialist who focuses on the foot and ankle. He was very casual and said I was healing fine. I insisted that he send me to someone who could make a brace of some sort. I can see that the same problem (posterior tibial tendonitis) was going to return if we did not get to the root of the problem. I insisted that he at least send me to a person. Fortunately, he sent me to a certified Orthodist. She found a slight discrepency in my right foot. (That's the one with the cast on it.) She is getting new orthodics for me- PLUS I asked about a brace that could keep my feet from over pronating. The Orthopaedic specialist said he could put me in an Arizona brace. I was molded for the brace yesterday.
I truly appreciate your suggestion. No other doctor would have thought to check into it. I am now swimming and have no more pain in the right ankle.
You have been a true blessing to me- in more ways than you will ever know. I know God had you pick up the phone when I called.
Again- THANKS for your kindness and expert advice. Don't forget to send me a link so I can write a review. Now I am on my way to being healthy again.[Close Review]
I would like you to know that after landing...
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 [See Full Review]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![Close Review]

I am loving the products and have gotten a significant amount of relief. Thank you!
In August of 2009, I suffered a severe...
In August of 2009, I suffered a severe meniscus tear in my left knee, pain level 9.5 out of 10. This occurred in my sleep while trying to untangle sheets that had wrapped around my ankles. I had awoken suddenly to severe pain that that only got wors[See Full Review]e as the injury began to swell under my kneecap. This injury rendered me unable to walk and getting out of bed took 5 - 10 minutes. I would prop myself up on crutches with a pillow in my mouth to bite down on and stifle my yelling as to not disturb the rest of my family, while I straightened my leg. I needed to do this every time before I could begin a trip to the bathroom; which at 49 years old is a 3am occurrence every night.
I knew I was a candidate for arthroscopic surgery. I had major and minor surgies over the past two years and was not excited about another one. I started to research options online when I stumbled upon The MendMeShop. After reading the testimonies and weighing the cost, I decided to give the Knee Inferno and Knee Freezie a try!
BOY! AM I GLAD THAT I DID!!
Within a couple of weeks, I was able to get rid of the crutches and was 95% pain free in 8 weeks, completely healed and back on a treadmill two weeks after that. I have a friend at church who had the same injury, opted for surgery, and took 12 weeks to heal.
Purchasing the wraps was by far the wisest medical treatment decision I have ever made for two reasons. Once you have surgery you are never the same,(with knee surgery you are almost guaranteed arthritis in the affected area within ten years or less), and the healing process was quicker without having to undergo invasive surgery. Thank you MendMeShop!! Fan For Life [Close Review]
Approximately 19.4 million visits to physicians' offices in the US per year are due to knee problems.
The knee is a complex joint with many components, making it vulnerable to a variety of injuries.
Oral medications can mask the pain but do not aid in the healing of knee injuries.
Most knee injuries can be successfully treated without surgery.
Sadly, regardless of treatment, ACL injuries in high-school youths are associated with a 10-fold increased risk for degenerative knee arthritis later in life.
