Dear MendMeShop,

My back is feeling better. Regular heating pads don't seem to work as well as the Inferno - I would assume due to their lack of penetration. The Inferno Wrap is of good benefit at this point. Thanks for a great product.

Dear MendMeShop,

I have been a hairdresser and esthetician for over 20 years now. I can not tell you how happy I am to have found your products. The Inferno Wrap for my wrist is a MIRACLE to me. I have suffered intense pain for the past 3 years due to overuse of my hands. I had been having acupuncture for the past 3 years. It helped for a while but the pain always returned. I was told I would need surgery and physical therapy. After only a week using the inferno wrap I have no pain. I have 3 other hairdressers in my salon hooked on your products too. One for shoulder and back pain. We are all so happy now. I will tell everyone I know about MendMeShop. Judy Barry

Bursitis Injury Facts Part 2:

Normally, bursa are flat and contain very little fluid. An injured bursa however, is swollen with fluid and not so flat anymore.


The most common bursitis injuries are:
Prepatellar Bursitis (housemaid's knee),
Superficial Infrapatellar Bursitis (clergyman's knee),
Trochanteric Bursitis (hip),
Olecranon Bursitis (student's elbow) and
Subacromial Bursitis (shoulder bursitis).


Deep Bursae separate bare areas of bone from overlapping muscles.
Superficial Bursae separate bare areas of bone from skin or tendons.


Deep Bursae develop in the womb.

Superficial Bursae develop within months to several years after birth.


Household names for various bursitis injuries include: Popeye's Elbow, Miner's Elbow, Weaver's Elbow, Housemaid's Knee, Hod-Carrier's Shoulders, Dustman's Shoulders, Student's Elbow, and Clergyman's Knee

 

Dear MendMeShop,

I have purchased several pieces from your shop (Tortoise Shellz Full Body Therapy Pad along with two Wrist Inferno Wraps) and we are very happy with all of them. In fact, I don't know what we would do without them, as all the injuries are improving gradually. Thank you for these wonderful products, and thank you, too, for the personal attention to your customers. A rarity, in today's world!

Bursitis Injury Facts Part 3:


On occasion, bacteria can invade a bursa and cause an infection. An infected bursa is known as septic bursitis and can be life-threatening if left untreated. So make sure you see a physician!


Septic bursitis is most common in knee joints and elbow joints as the bursae in these locations are close to the skin and most susceptible to bacterial invasion.


It is not uncommon for bursitis to be misdiagnosed as arthritis.


Bursitis is best avoided by staying in shape, taking frequent breaks from repetitive or laborious tasks and cushioning joints if on them for long periods (ie. kneepads for gardening).


A Bursa can swell to a surprisingly large size. In cases of heavy swelling, your physician may choose to drain fluid from the swollen bursa. If a lump is present in chronic bursitis cases, excision may be required.


Clergyman's Knee comes from a more upright posture when kneeling in comparison to Housemaid's Knee. Patients suffering from gout or syphilis can be at higher risk of contracting Clergyman's Knee.

What is Goosefoot (Pes Anserine) Bursitis?

Pes anserine bursits is a painful, inflammatory condition affecting the tendons between your shinbone and the hamstring tendons at the inside of your knee. The pes anserinus is the area where the tendons of 3 muscles (sartorius, gracilis, and semitendinosus) come together. The three tendons merge together in the skin of the bone on the inside surface of the shinbone. These three muscles are the dominant knee flexors; they influence the rotation of the tibia and protect the knee against rotary stress.

Repetitive bending can cause pes anserine bursitis and pain in the knee.

The pes anserinus is the area where the tendons of 3 hamstring muscles (sartorius, gracilis, and semitendinosus) come together. The three tendons merge together on the inside surface of the shinbone. These three muscles are the dominant knee flexors that function to allow movement of the leg towards the body and control rotation of the tibia, protecting the knee against stress when it is turned. The pes anserine bursa lies beneath these tendons close to the shinbone, providing cushioning between the tendons and the tibia.

A condition in which the pes anserine bursa sac inside the knee becomes irritated and inflamed. A bursa is a sac of synovial fluid, rich in protein and collagen. These fluid-filled sacs are located in areas where 2 surfaces in your body, most often where a bone and tendon or a bone and muscle, rub together during movement. Bursae play an important role in leading a healthy, active life as they allow your joints to move smoothly and painlessly.

With too much pressure or friction on a bursa, excess fluid can build up in the sac and/or the the lining of the sac can thicken, causing inflammation. When the pes anserine bursa becomes inflamed, moving your knee becomes very painful and movement can be difficult.


What is the difference Bursitis vs Tendonitis?

Bursits: Each joint in the body has a bursa (Bursae is plural) are flattened fluid-filled sacs that function as cushions between your bones and the muscles (deep bursae) or bones and tendons (superficial bursae). When the joint is over overusing or overstressed the bursa may become damaged with small micro-tears on the surface or become squeezed by tissue which has become tight.

Tendonitis: Overusing or overstressing any area of the body will damaged the tendon tissue. The tendons connects muscles to bones, and the damage is small micro-tears on the tendon fibers.

It is possible to have both bursitis and tendonitis as the same time in any joint in the body.

 

What Causes Anserine Bursitis

Inflammation of the pes anserine bursae or the surrounding tendons usually develops due to overuse, trauma, or degeneration of the protective tissue in the knee. The most common cause of pes anserine bursitis is hamstring tightness due to a lack of warming up and stretching properly before activity, particularly long distance running or excessive climbing.

When there is too much pressure or excessive rubbing on the pes anserine bursa, excess fluid can build up in the sac and/or the the lining of the sac can thicken, causing inflammation. When the pes anserine bursa becomes inflamed, moving your knee becomes very painful and movement can be difficult. Any actions that put pressure on the inflamed bursa can increase irritation and cause further inflammation and pain.

Excess Stress on the Pes Anserine Bursa; Sports that require athletes to make frequent side-to-side or quick back and forth movements can put athletes at risk of pes anserine bursitis. This is due to the repetitive, sudden pressure applied to the bursa during these movements.

Kneeling for extended periods of time can cause bursitis in the knee.

Alternatively, not doing any exercise or activity allows muscles to become weak and your knees begin to lack the proper muscle support. This can cause excess load on the knee joints or may cause your weight to be unevenly distributed. Uneven distribution of weight will put extra stress on some areas compared to others leading to abnormal wear and tear on the stressed areas.

In addition, if you are overweight, the knee joints have to work harder to carry a greater load causing more stress on the tendons, ligaments, muscles, bones, and bursae in the knees. The excess stress can lead to irritation and inflammation of any of the soft tissue over time, including the pes anserine bursa.

The overall structure of your knee and leg, such as foot rolling, out-turned knees, or limping can cause excessive friction, or rubbing, on the pes anserine bursa as your weight shifts onto the inner part of the knee. (Biomechanical problems or Abnormal Knee Mechanics)

A direct blow to the knee cap and pes anserine bursa during athletics or when falling on the knee can result in bursitis. In such cases, blood may leak into the bursa causing irritation, inflammation, swelling and pain.

AidMyBursa Online Shop

Excessive friction, or rubbing, on the prepatella bursa can aggravate it over time. If your work or exercise routine requires frequent climbing, running, jumping, or hiking you may be at higher risk of prepatella bursitis. This risk increases if there is anything that many cause abnormal wear and tear within the joint.

Infection (Septic Bursitis). The closer the bursa is to the surface of the skin, the more likely the chance of infection from specific bacteria (staphylococcus epidermis or staphylococcus aureus) that are commonly found on the surface of the skin. This bacterial infection is known as septic bursitis. Septic bursitis occurs most commonly in men (85% of all cases occur in men) and you are at a higher risk of contracting this if you:

  • have diabetes
  • have recently experienced trauma
  • are undergoing steroid treatments
  • have a certain kidney condition

If the bursitis in your pes anserine bursa is septic, you will require antibiotics from your doctor to treat the infection. Warmth and redness in the area are signs of an infection as well as a fever. If you suspect your bursitis is septic, be sure to see a doctor immediately.

If you suffer from osteoarthritis in your knees, as your knees experience wear and tear, there is a release of destructive enzymes which break down the cartilage to the point where the bones of the knee joint rub together and develop sclerosis (a hardening of tissue) as well as tiny fractures, cysts and bone spurs. The excess wear and tear can cause abnormal pressure on the bursa leading to irritation and inflammation.

 


What are the Symptoms of Pes Anserine Bursitis

Pain, Tenderness and Swelling - If you suffer from bursitis in your pes anserine bursa you will feel pain or tenderness over your tibia, approximately 2-3 inches below the patella, or kneecap. The pain often felt down to the back and inside of the thigh.

Pain to the lateral side of the knee cap is commonly caused by pes anserine bursitis.
  • Pain becomes worse during exercise or when you are climbing stairs, but can also increase by simply bending and straightening your knee. Pain usually starts gradually and develops over a few days or even months.
  • Swelling is usually evident over and around the bursa that is inflamed. This swelling may appear immediately following trauma, over a couple of hours, or up to 7-10 days after the incident.
  • You may also notice warmth and visible redness on your skin in the area as inflammation in the pes anserine bursa and along the tendons becomes more severe.
  • You may be suffering from knee bursitis may also have interrupted sleep patterns. Simply bending your knee or rolling over during sleep can cause pressure on the inflamed bursa, increasing your pain. The pain can range from mild to very sharp depending on the amount of inflammation in your knee. Many knee bursitis sufferers recommend placing a pillow between your knees/thighs while you sleep to reduce pain throughout the night.
  • You may have limited range of motion and weakness in your leg and knee. The pain is often limiting as you stop performing motions that make the pain worse. If bursitis is left untreated the inflammation can increase, causing more pain, limiting movement even more and eventually weakness in the leg muscles and tendons can set in. As you lose strength in your quadriceps, your legs may begin to give out during daily activities.

Bursitis pain and swelling can limited the range of motion in the knee.

It is important to treat pes anserine bursitis in the early stages to reduce the symptoms, minimize damage and maintain motion and strength in your knee. Eliminate any squatting, repetitive knee bending, crossing your legs, kneeling or any other activities that add pressure on your bursa. By treating your knee bursitis in the early stages with cold compression therapy and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy, you are more likely to prevent long-term damage and chronic conditions from setting in.


How Do I Diagnose Goosefoot Knee Bursitis?

When you are experiencing knee pain, a visit to the doctor is always recommended, as there are many conditions that can cause knee pain such as a meniscus tear, an ACL sprain, patellar or quadriceps tendinitis, a fracture, and yes knee bursitis. Getting a proper diagnosis is important so you can treat your condition correctly.

A doctor visit is always recommended.

To begin with, your doctor will gather a medical history about you and your current condition and symptoms. He/she will ask about the amount pain you are having with your knee. How long you have had your symptoms and if you are have range of motion loss with you leg and knee. Details about what caused the pain in the knee, when it started, and whether or not you have ever had treatments for this or a similar condition in the past, are very helpful in assessing your injury.

A physical examination will be performed to determine if you have any signs of knee bursitis or other knee injury. He/she will visually assess and palpate (feel) the bones and soft tissue in both your knees to evaluate any differences between the two of them. This will identify any abnormalities, such as swelling, bone deformities, atrophied muscles, redness and/or warmth on the skin. In many cases, the first sign that you have knee bursitis is swelling at the joint.

The doctor will discuss your symptoms and visually assess the bones and soft tissue in your knee.

If a soft tissue injury is suspected, an MRI will likely be done to view where and how extensive the damage is. An x-ray may be recommended to rule out a bone spur or other foreign body as the cause of your knee pain.

As the bursae in the knee are close to the surface of the skin, they are more susceptible to septic, or infectious, bursitis caused by a cut or scrape on the knee. Septic bursitis requires antibiotics to get rid of the infection. Your doctor will be able to determine whether there is an infection or not by drawing a small sample of the bursa fluid with a needle.

(Goosefoot) Bursitis?
What You Can Do!

We Have Advanced Treatment Tools to Help You
Speed Up Healing of Your Knee Bursitis!

The good news is that most cases of goosefoot knee bursitis will heal with simple home conservative treatments and surgery is often not needed!

It's generally understood by doctors and surgeons, that surgery will introduce more scar tissue into the tendons and ligaments in your knee. This added scar tissue will be problematic, requiring physical therapy and conservative treatment options post-surgery. When it comes to goosefoot bursitis there's only a few surgical options for treatment - removal of the bursa sac, scraping of the bone(s) to allow more room for the new bursa to grow back. This is why surgery is only performed as a last resort for chronic knee bursitis that won't heal with conservative treatment methods.

Some conservative treatment methods recommended include:

quickly relieve goosefoot knee pain with Infra-Red Knee Wrap
  • Rest - This is important for initial healing because without proper rest you're at risk for increased pain, inflammation. If you are not pro-active with your resting of your knee you may even worse and turn an acute injury into a chronic one.
  • Avoid Activities that Caused Your Injury - While resting your knee and leg it's also important to avoid all actvities that may have caused your knee bursitis.
  • Apply Cold Compression - Immediate cold (using a ColdCure Wrap®) will help you to manage pain while getting rid of the pain and inflammation. Immediate pain relief and reduced inflammation can also relieve some of the pressure that's being placed on your knee tissue(s) and stop your injury from getting worse.
  • Use Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy - After any inflammation and/or swelling has been reduced, you can use your own blood flow to maximize healing of damaged tissue and maintain healthy blood flow to your all your knee bursa. This also boost overall long-term healing of this injury.


Effective Conservative Treatment Options
are Available

MendMeShop Customer Reviews

The most important factor in healing bursitis is resting your knee. This can be difficult when you have to carry on with daily activities, but resting whenever you can is recommended. During your recovery you will probably have to modify or avoid the activities that stress your bursa until your pain and inflammation settle.

Treatments should involve decreasing swelling, relieving stress on the knee, treating scar tissue, and then restoring strength and movement in your leg and knee. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) is recommended once inflammation has been calmed to heal the bursa and surrounding tissue faster and reduce the risk of bursitis returning.

Step 1 - Reduce Pain & Swelling with Cold Compression

The 1st step for conservative treatment of your pes anserine bursitis is to reduce the swelling to "open up" the area for more blood flow. Anyone in the health-care business knows that your blood supplies the oxygen and much needed nutrients required to heal bursitis injuries. This is why for years doctors, trainers and other medical professional have recommended RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) to treat the pain and swelling of fresh injuries, chronic pain, and after any re-injury.

The Knee Freezie Wrap treats pain, swelling and inflammation caused by bursitis while reducing tissue damage.

Although RICE can help to treat these symptoms, ice and freezer gel packs reach temperatures so low they can cause cryoburn, an ice burn on your skin. The problem is, up until now there hasn't been any other option to treat painful conditions and injuries, so ice and blue gel packs (full of anti-freeze and chemicals) have been the only choice up until now.

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, numb your skin and underlying tissue beyond feeling so you don't even notice the ice burn until it's too late and pool around your injury putting the cold everywhere except for where you need it most.

AidMyBursa Online Shop

A Knee ColdCure Wrap® allows you to treat your knee in an effective and convenient way. Our ColdCure Wraps® will wrap around your knee keeping the cold right over your bursitis injury for the entire length of your treatment. Our food-grade, non-toxic gel packs can be chilled in the fridge or freezer to tailor the amount of cold that you need for your injury. It doesn't matter how you cool it down, because our gel packs are chock full of gel that's designed to cool down into millions of tiny snowflakes. This method of cooling means our gel packs aren't icy-cold. The cushioned gel will wrap around your knee and it won't budge for the entire treatment period. You'll no longer have to deal with annoying pooling around your knee or have to hold a hard block of ice on your injury!

Step 2 - Improve Circulation, Soften Scar Tissue & Prevent Re-Injury with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy

After the inflammation in your bursa has been reduced, providing extra blood flow and helping to heal your damaged bursa is recommended for complete healing.

The Knee Inferno Wrap speeds the healing of bursa tissue and the surrounding area.

Using Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®), will help with your recovery and heal your damaged tissue more completely. BFST® increases the amount of blood that flows naturally to your bursa and soft tissue to nourish your injury, improving elasticity and speeding the healing process. This increased Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy to your bursa is greatly needed.

The only way to get BFST® is through use of a Knee BFST Wrap®. The Knee BFST Wrap® is the only treatment method that improves blood flow and circulation on a deep tissue level. Other methods of warming / heating tissue (hot water bottles, hot baths, etc) will only ever increase blood flow on a surface / skin level. These methods need a LOT of time to even reach your bursae on a deep tissue level. And even if you were to use them this long your skin would heat up to an uncomfortable level and may even burn you.

how blood flow stimulation therapy works.

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 damaged bursa by increasing the blood flow right in your soft tissue. Over time with consistent treatments you'll even notice that the warmth you feel from BFST® will decrease. This is a sign that you've successfully increased blood flow right at the source of your pain and your body is doing everything it can to speed up the healing process.

Our knee BFST Wrap® is 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 BFST® BFST Wraps®:

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

Continue the healing process by resting your knee. Limit the activities that may be aggravate your knee. Without proper rest and limitation on activities, being active as if your knee is healthy can lead to re-injury. To get back to doing the things you love you need to give your body proper care and attention. Why risk having to limit or give up your favorite weekend activity, your exercise routine, or even your job due to a bursitis injury?

Prevention and Promotion of Lifelong Health

promote likelong health to overcome your bursitis and get back to enjoying life with family

If you want to avoid re-injury, or manage pain and increase circulation for lifelong health benefits, a Knee ColdCure Wrap® and Knee BFST Wrap®, will provide exceptional results.

Bursitis Inflammation Facts:

Bursitis is the inflammation or irritation of the bursa.


Bursitis is most often caused by repetitive, minor impact on the area, or from a sudden, more serious injury.


Bursitis high-risk activities include gardening, raking, carpentry, shoveling, painting, scrubbing, tennis, golf, skiing, throwing, and pitching.


If bursitis persists and is left untreated, calcium deposits can form within the bursae. These calcium deposits limit range of motion and can lead to a permanently stiff joint.


Incorrect posture at work or home and poor stretching or conditioning before exercise can also lead to bursitis.

 

Dear MendMeShop,

Over the past eight months I have been suffering from shoulder and arm pain. I just kept thinking that the pain would go away on its own. When I reached the point where I was unable to raise my arm over my head without assistance and forget about putting my arm behind my back. I decided that a trip to the doctor was due. She ruled out that I had an injury to the Rotator Cuff itself and determined that I had a soft tissue injury. Due to repetitive movement and heavy lifting. She suggested that I try physical therapy. With my work schedule and family obligations I knew that was going to be very difficult and I wanted something that I could fit into my schedule. So I began doing research on the internet for alternative treatments and exercises. That's when I found your product on the internet. I was somewhat skeptical as to rather it would perform as stated, but decided to give it a try. It was stated that it could take up to three weeks to feel results. BUT I am here to say that for myself it has done better. I have been using the Freezie Wrap for a week and have already felt some improvement. I can now raise my arm to just about shoulder height unassisted, and can now almost get my finger tips back behind my back. I make a point of using Freeze Wrap as soon as I get home from work to relieve the stress to my muscles from work and to keep the inflammation down. Now that I have gotten some of the inflammation gone I intend to incorporate the Inferno Wrap treatment to my regiment to just before going bed to aid the healing process and aid in a better night's sleep.

Dear MendMeShop,

I wanted to write and extend my thanks for having such a great product! I have been suffering from Plantar Fasciitis for over two years. My Podiatrist had given me all the Steroid shots he was willing to do and said that surgery was the only option left. After just 7 days of treatment with your products, the swelling is almost all gone. The intense pain has subsided substantially. I can already go most of a whole day without even thinking about (or feeling) the intense pain. I'm keeping up the therapy and have a lot of confidence that in a month or two, I can resume my life as usual again! Thanks again!! A very satisfied customer, Dave Stanfield Texas USA

Dear MendMeShop,

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

Dear MendMeShop,

I'm treating a recent ankle sprain. The injury occurred while playing volleyball. RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) alone or in the past did not seem to really help. I've tried other herbal remedies that didn't appear to help or still took a long time to recover. I did an internet search for a quicker recovery process. I can tell immediately after each use that there is definitely less pain to the touch. And I always felt heat therapy worked better for me. Now I know why, because it promotes circulation and healing. That's why I also purchased the Inferno Ankle Wrap. At first I did not feel it was providing enough heat. However, my foot was always sweating after each use! With other solutions the temperature was never constant and sometimes I would burn my foot. I knew from my past ankle sprain on my other leg that it took forever to heal. Even 2 years later, I still felt it move. This time I wanted to make sure it did not happen again. I'm doing surprisingly well with my ankle so far. I played volleyball the following week and back to usual routine the week after, snowboarding one day and volleyball the next. Even though I'm not 100% yet after 3 weeks, I feel the Inferno Ankle Wrap has greatly attributed to my quick recovery! I would definitely recommend it and the customer service has been truly exceptional! Thank you!

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.
