Dear MendMeShop,

I have nothing but good to say about the Inferno Wrap. I am continuing to use it daily. My shoulder is better than I imagined it could be in the amount of time I have been using it. Sometimes I go for days with no pain and when it does come back, it is no where near the intensity it was before the Inferno Wrap. Thank you so much for tracking my progress. A very happy customer, Louise Schiotis

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.

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 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.

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 Prepatellar Bursitis in the Kneecaps

How to Use Superior Home Treatments to
Heal & Relieve Pain from Knee Bursitis Injuries!

 

You might be suffering from Prepatellar Bursitis if:

  • You have sharp pain right over your kneecap.
  • You have increased pain when doing anything
  • exercising or even climbing a set of stairs.
  • Your sleep has been interrupted rolling over causes point pressure and more pain in the knee.
  • You have weakness in your knee and leg from the pain.
  • You can see your knee is warm, red and swelling on your kneecap.
Infrapatellar bursitis causes pain in the knee.

If any of those statements are true for you or you're suffering from on-going pain on the inside of your knee then you might have an injury called Prepatellar knee bursitis.

Many people don't know that Prepatellar knee bursitis is a very real injury affecting the bursa sac in your knee. This form of knee bursitis; can happen to anyone often caused by acute trama to the knee. A re-occuring injury to the bursa, repetitive pressure to on the knee bursa as part of your job; crawling, scrubbing floors, kneeling on the knees; as in carpet laying.

Fortunately for you, professional athletes have had access to state of the art treatment therapies for years that allow them to heal more quickly and completely than you or I. This is why athletes that have a serious knee infrapatellar bursitis injury can often get back in the game in a matter of weeks while you could suffer for months or even years (in chronic cases).

With some breakthrough products we have engineered, professional treatment is now available to anyone who needs it.

What You Need to Treat Your Bursitis Injury:

  • A Professional Cold Compression ColdCure Wrap® to reduce inflammation of the muscle tissue (as soon as possible).
  • A Deep Tissue Therapeutic BFST Wrap® to increase Blood Flow Stimulation Therapyto the injured soft tissue (BFST®).
  • A Professional, Minimal Impact Stretching Device, known as the Knee-Flex® to prevent muscle atrophy and gently allow stretching of your affected leg muscles (hip, thigh, quadriceps, hamstring, groin, calf, shins, politeus, IT band, etc).
 


What is Prepatellar Bursitis of the kneecap?

Prepatellar bursitis (also referred to as patellar bursitis) is a painful condition affecting the front of the kneecap (patella). The prepatellar bursa is usually very thin and serves as a cushion between the patella and your skin, protecting your kneecap and the soft tissue that holds it is place.

Prepatellar bursitis causes knee pain at the front of the knee due to the bursa sac becoming irritated and inflamed. This bursa is just one of many bursae (plural for bursa) in your body. Bursae are sacs of synovial fluid that are rich in protein and collagen. They are located in areas where a bone and tendon, or a bone and muscle, rub together during movement.

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

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

The prepatellar bursa is commonly affected by bursitis due to repetitive pressure on the kneecap during frequent kneeling. Prepatellar bursitis is also known as Clergyman's Knee, Carpet Layer's Knee, or Housemaid's Knee due to the nature of their work requiring kneeling for long periods of time. Once injured, fluid and/or blood is allowed to enter into the bursa and inflammation will increase overtime. When this happens, the bursa sac walls may thicken and form scar tissue or calcium may collect in the bursa.

If you are experiencing a significant amount of swelling or pain, it is possible that you have a broken or chipped patella. In this case, your doctor may recommend an x-ray to examine this further.


What causes Prepatellar Bursitis?
Kneeling for extended periods of time can cause bursitis in the knee.

Repetitive pressure on the prepatellar bursa is the main cause of prepatellar bursitis. Although the bursae in your knee function as cushions to protect the tendons and other soft tissue, frequent kneeling during your work or activities often creates more stress than the bursa can handle. Kneeling on hard surfaces, knee pads are recommended to treat or prevent prepatellar bursitis. Without exercise or activity, muscles weaken and you begin to lack the proper muscle support. This can cause excess load on the knees and hips or your weight may be distributed unevenly within your knee. This added extra stress on some areas compared to others leading to abnormal wear and tear.

If you are overweight, the knee joints have to work harder to carry a greater load causing more stress on the knees. 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.

A blow to the knee can cause prepatellar bursitis.

A direct blow to the prepatella 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.

The closer the bursa is to the surface of the skin, the more likely the chance of infection from specific bacteria that are commonly found on the surface of the skin. This bacterial infection is known as septic bursitis and common bacteria that create this infection are known as Staphylococcus Epidermis (or Staphylococcus Aureus).

This bacteria can affect the bursa if the knee is cut or scraped, allowing it to get under the skin. Septic Bursitis occurs most commonly in men (85% of all cases occur in men).

Pain below the knee cap is commonly caused by prepatellar bursitis.

If you suffer from osteoarthritis in your knees, as your knees experience wear and tear there is a release of destructive enzymes. These enzymes 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 Prepatellar Bursitis?
Pain below the knee cap is commonly caused by prepatellar bursitis.

You will experience knee pain and tenderness just below and over top of the kneecap. The pain may radiate up your inner knee and thigh and/or down to your mid-calf. Those who suffer from prepateller bursitis complain of increased pain when crossing their legs or when rising after sitting for several hours. Due to the location of the bursa, pain makes kneeling difficult.

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.

You may suffering from knee bursitis may also have interrupted sleep. 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.

Regular knee movements can be painful which limits your range of motion. 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.

You may experience swelling at the front of the knee and often appears as an abscess on the kneecap. This swelling may appear right following trauma, over a couple of hours, or gradually over time as the bursa becomes more irritated.

You may also notice warmth and visible redness on your skin in the area as inflammation in the bursa and along the tendons becomes more severe.

bursitis knee pain can be life changing

It is important to treat bursitis in the early stages to reduce these symptoms, minimize tissue damage, 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 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 Prepatellar 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.

How Do I Treat Prepatellar Bursitis -
What You Can Do!

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

Relieving the pain of your sore knee and the symptoms of bursitis initially focuses on keeping the pressure off the bursa. If your bursitis is caused by an infection (septic bursitis), the doctor will drain the bursa sac with a needle and prescribe antibiotics to treat the infection. For non-infectious bursitis, the preliminary treatment starts with conservative treatments.

Some conservative treatment methods recommended include:

Cold Knee Wrap treats pain, swelling and inflammation caused by tendon strain.
  • Rest - This is important for initial healing because without an correct amount of rest you are at risk for increased inflammation, pain and re-injury of your meniscus.
  • Apply Effective Cold Compression
    Effective Cold Compression = Treatment with a ColdCure Wrap® - Immediate cold compression (using the Knee ColdCure Wrap®) will allow you to manage pain while getting rid of swelling, inflammation and edema in your knee.
  • Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) - You can use your own blood flow to maximize your rehabilitation, decrease recovery time, and boost overall long-term healing.

The most important factor in healing prepatellar 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.


Step 1 Effective Cold Compression Therapy, Your natural pain reliever!

The 1st step for conservative treatment of your infrapatellar 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.

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.

Knee Freezie Wrap treats pain, inflammation of knee bursitis while reducing tissue damage.

A ColdCure Wrap® allows you to treat your knee in an effective and convenient way. 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. 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 injury or have to hold a hard block of ice on your knee!

Cooling your inflamed prepatellar bursa as needed throughout the day will reduce pain and tissue damage. The Knee ColdCure Wrap® can be used to apply cold in a safe, convenient and effective way - and the gel pack is reusable. The gel pack sits gently over the inflamed bursa to reduce swelling and redness.

The wrap is soft and adjustable so it fits your body properly, without irritating the bursa, and allows you to adjust the compression. This is important when treating an inflamed bursa because too much pressure can cause you further pain. You control how much pressure the bursa receives so you can benefit from the compression to hold the cold where you need it, without increasing your pain.

Applying cold to your tender bursa and knee is the 2nd step in treating your bursitis. Next, you can begin using the BFST Wrap® to accelerate the healing process.


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

After the inflammation in your knee has been reduced, providing extra blood flow and strengthening the tissue around your knee is recommended.

The only way to get BFST® is through use of a BFST Wrap®. The BFST Wrap® is the only treatment method that improves blood flow and circulation on a deep tissue level. Other methods of increasing circulation in your 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 tendon 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.

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

Unfortunately, when you are suffering from bursitis it can be painful to even walk or lift your leg. When you limit movement in your knee joint the blood flow is reduced, starving your tissue of the necessary oxygen and nutrients.

The trick is to find a way to increase blood flow without causing pain and/or further inflaming the bursae. This is where Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy, or BFST®, becomes a powerful tool.

BFST® compliments your body's natural healing process by promoting blood flow while you give your knee the rest it needs.

The best source of improved blood flow 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 around your patella tendon increasing the blood flow right in your tendon tissue.

  • When treating any soft tissue injury, an effective therapy will increase blood flow to the injury while the joint is immobile.
  • This increase in blood flow will accelerate the body's own ability to heal itself.
  • The BFST Wrap® is the most highly effective blood flow stimulation device that you will find on the market that is approved by the FDA for use in the home or hospital.

Our 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!

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,

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 developed tendonitis in my left ankle about a year ago, after having some pain and realizing I needed to go to the doctor to see what I’d done! In November, I was told it was tendonitis and to wear a “boot” or air cast and that they would prescribe physical therapy. I was told that I did not need to wear the boot 24/7, but anytime it was painful or would be using my feet a lot, I should use it. Even though I’m a type A and like to multi-task and move quickly, I wore the boot, but boy did it get in my way. The physical therapy definitely helped, and they gave me some exercises to do at home and while gone for about two weeks. I graduated from physical therapy in January, and although my ankle did not really feel stable, the pain had diminished. However my body had aches and pains, some sciatica, my legs had cramping and those worsened whenever using the boot for long walking periods, as suggested by PT’s and doctor. Basically, we dediced that all this had helped, but anytime there was a strain put on that ankle, it was back to swelling and pain. And, the boot helped to keep pressure off the injury, but basically caused more damage to the rest of me. Frustrated, I decided to search tendonitis on line, and was looking for other modalities for healing. Voila! This lead me to the MendMeShop. With their 60 Day Money Back Guarantee, Free Shipping on orders over $200.00 and great support – I decided to purchase (I mean how could I go wrong)! I got the Achilles Inferno Wrap (for pain), the Achilles Freezie Wrap (for swelling, although after using the Inferno really didn’t have a swelling problem) and the 5 Year Extended Warranty on about the 20th of June this year. Read the instructions, called with a couple of questions and got great personalized service, and started using the Inferno Wrap as directed! Immediately my ankle was back to its more normal size and most of the pain was gone. I am able to move freely, actually am working a few days a week on my feet 8-9 hours, and although I don’t believe my tendon is totally healed yet – I believe it will be as I continue to use the Inferno Wrap. I simply saw that the PT (which included some ten treatments) was giving me snippets of relief. The boot left me wondering if it wouldn’t cause other damage even though it took the pressure off the tendon when I was unable to walk on it. The Inferno Wrap, and the few times I’ve needed the Freezie Wrap, have done more for me and has been worth every penny spent. I know I’ve saved 100’s in PT had I not met TheMendMe Shop and their products.

Dear MendMeShop,

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 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.
