Dear MendMeShop,

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

Dear MendMeShop,

Just a quick note to say thanks for your products......even though it was I who purchased them, lol. I have been dealing with a small meniscus tear (left knee) for almost a year and a half and didn't want the surgery and the down time, crutches and also that I have stairs in my home and at my gym. I believe I have been useing your products for 3-4 weeks now and am really pleased with the results thus far. I am still taking stairs one at a time to reduce any impact on the knee and only do low impact cycling at the gym. It is my understanding that I should continue treatment for 4-6 months. Warm regards, David

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,

I wanted to get back to you with feedback about the Inferno Wrap. So far we are very pleased with the size, light weight, flexibility and comfort of the wrap. It is very convenient the way the cord is set up. If one has to leave the area for a moment it is much easier now because instead of removing the entire wrap or unplugging the whole thing from the wall, you can just detach at the segment. I like the on/off switch, too. It is much easier to see which setting it is on. Everything about this new product seems more intelligent and user friendly. A lot of thought was put into improving on the old product. Well done to all involved!!!

Dear MendMeShop,

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 went 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.

Dear MendMeShop,

I am a retired Orthopedic Surgical Registered Nurse First Asst and I just want to say this Shoulder Inferno Wrap is wonderful. I have had adhesive capsulitis in my left shoulder several times. I am 67yo now and I have Arthritis, Lupus and fibromyalgia and I had bilat knee replacements in 2001. It has always taken about 6months to get back use of my arm and to get relief from pain. I read your information and was expecting it to take at least 6weeks to see an improvement. I have used it this short time since receiving it and I am almost painfree. Occasionally I start to feel a little ache and I put it back on before it becomes pain I have full range of motion when I could not brush my hair or fasten my bra. Again, I am so pleased and hope it helps others too. Jane P.S. I would like to encourage others to try the products and see if they get the same remarkable results as I did. I continue to improve with full ROM remaining and only occasional episodes of pain; As soon as I feel any pain, I use it 2-3 days in a row and the pain is gone. This is probably Arthritis as it feels different.

Dear MendMeShop,

I just wanted to let you know how happy I have been with my wrist wrap. I broke my leg, the tibia and fibula January 10, 2013. I had a lot of soft tissue damage to my foot since I fell off a pier and landed on gravel with my foot. My tendons are so tight and at night they wake me up a lot, had a metatarsal lump on the bottom of my foot which gave me issues. I was going to order the foot pad but the lady advised me to get the wrist wrap since the top of my foot was involved and she said I could probably wrap it around different places and she was so right. I am much better. I have been using it about a month now and I can tell you that I am much better. The energy from the wrap helps my tendons to stretch out and although I am not 100%, I have gone from 50% to 75% in this one month. I only wish I had found you earlier in my ordeal and I would probably be 100% by now. I would recommend your product to anyone who is having tendon issues after an injury. Thank you so much

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 with reducing inflammation & increasing blood flow to my Achilles area which has greatly aided in the healing process.

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

Dear MendMeShop,

Two years ago, after returning to the gym for the first time in over a decade, I developed intense lower back pain which radiated into my left hip and leg. I also developed snapping hip syndrome. After many expensive visits to a chiropractor and physical therapist, I gained some relief, but still experienced constant low level pain in the injured areas with episodes of intense debilitating pain which interfered with my sleep and work. After searching online for alternative and cost effective self treatment methods, I discovered your website and purchased your Back/Hip Inferno Wrap and Back/Hip Freezie Wrap. Within a short period of time of using these products, I noticed a huge reduction in pain. Two months later, the pain is barely noticeable, the snapping hip syndrome is an unpleasant memory and I feel that significant long term healing of chronic injuries is taking place. I absolutely LOVE your products, and enthusiastically recommend them to everyone I meet who is experiencing similar pain issues. Kudos to Paul and everyone in your customer service department which is beyond compare in terms of knowledge, promptness and genuine concern for your customers!

Dear MendMeShop,

I have been using the inferno wrap for about 3 weeks now and the results are outstanding. I could feel relief after the first use of the inferno wrap. About 2 years ago the doctor told me I had plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. The heel of my feet hurt so badly, I could hardly walk. Getting out of bed in the mornings was pain beyond belief. I would hold on to the bed railings to take a step. After going to the doctors and getting cortizone injections, ordering custom made insoles, exercises, taping my arch, and therapy, my feet were still hurting. I stopped the doctor visits for lack of relief. I was paying out so much money with no results. Not knowing what else to do, I prayed and asked God to show me what I could do to get releif. I came across the mend me website and read the entire article on foot problems and the products. What it said made so much sense to me. I felt it would be the right thing for me. I love the way it talks about the body and explain how it should work. What really drew me the most and encouraged me to order was: the site said your body was designed to heal itself. I am a firm believer in organic healing and avoiding medication and surgery whenever possible. When I read about the blood flow I was sold on the product. I know that blood is the life of the body. When I wear the inferno wrap I don't want to take it off. It gives relief and warmth right where it hurts. I will be ordering other products for the feet as well. Thanks for the information you give on each part of the body. I have referred your website to several people for different ailments.

Dear MendMeShop,

I fell down on ice last March, hit my left shoulder on the ground pretty hard and stirred up an old injury that hadn't bothered me for twenty years. I was in a great deal of pain and tried everything I could think of that might help. I only found temporary relief from the pain. It wasn't until I began using your Shoulder Inferno Wrap that I truly began to heal and the pain slowly began to subside. After several months, I still use the Wrap daily to maintain the healing and progress I've made. I then also sought the advice of a physical therapist because in addition to the pain I used to have before using the Wrap, I was still dealing with stiffness and a very limited range of motion. After examining me, the therapist said I didn't have rotator cuff issues just muscle issues, a thing called "frozen shoulder". For seven weeks now I have received help from a massage therapist and am slowly improving the range of motion. I chose to work with her because her sessions include massage and stretching. A session leaves my shoulder feeling slightly sore. I use the Inferno Wrap afterwards and the heat I feel as it works relieves the soreness. I am sure using the Wrap also helps the muscles "remember" longer the right way they are supposed to feel and function. Combining the Wrap with massage therapy has been a winning combo for me! Do I dare confess...I love the Wrap so much that I will definitely buy another one. The Back Wrap will be my next purchase from you. I mean this whole-heartedly - thank you for the Wrap! I am also pleased with your customer service. Dealing with you was a pleasure. You really do care about your customers! I am delighted and impressed with your product and your people. __________________

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.

Bursectomy - Surgical Bursa Removal
Post-Operative Rehabilitation

We Have Advanced Treatment Tools to Help You
Get Back on Your Feet!

Olecranon bursectomy removes the elbow bursa and any bone spurs.

You have a seemingly small, nagging bursa injury that's not properly healed and has become chronic.

Your doctor has given have conservative treatments before even suggesting surgery. It is generally understood by doctors and surgeons, that surgery will introduce more scar tissue into the any already damaged tissue. This added scar tissue will be problematic, requiring more physical therapy and conservative treatment options post-surgery. If not dealt with properly, your bursitis injury could end up in worse condition than before the surgery! This is why surgery is only performed as a last resort.

Most doctors, surgeons and orthopedic specialists will recommend conservative treatment methods for minor bursitis injuries before even considering surgery.

Some of the most effective conservative treatment methods you will find are:

  • 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 injury you may even worse and turn an acute injury into a chronic one.
  • Avoid activities that caused your injury - While resting your bursa injury it's also important to avoid all activities that may have caused your bursitis.
  • Apply Effective Cold Compression
    Effective Cold Compression = Treatment with a Freezie Wrap®

    Treat yourself with effective cold compression to reduce pain and swelling from bursitis.
    Immediate cold (using a Freezie 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 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 bursa. This also boost overall long-term healing of this injury.


Effective Conservative Treatment Options
are Available

If your doctor has decided that your bursitis can be treated with conservative treatment, you can join our many customers who have had great success treating themselves with the powerful, conservative treatment products we offer through AidMyBursa.


What You Need to Treat Your Bursitis:

  • A Professional Cold Compression Freezie Wrap® to reduce inflammation around your bursa (as soon as possible).
  • A Deep Tissue Therapeutic Inferno Wrap® to increase Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy to the injured soft tissue (BFST®).
  • A Professional, Minimal Impact Stretching Device, known as the Knee-Flex® to prevent soft tissue atrophy and gently allow stretching of your affected soft tissue (hip bursitis, trochanteric bursitis, iliopsoas bursitis, knee bursitis, prepatellar bursitis, infrapatellar bursitis, pes anserine bursitis, achilles bursitis, heel bursitis, foot bursitis, etc).
 

Bursitis injuries can happen to anyone and right now there are thousands of doctors and physical therapists dealing with patients that require a solution to treat their bursa injury fast and heal it (where possible). If you want to be pro-active about properly addressing your bursitis, speak to your doctor about adding to your treatment with AidMyBursa's system utilizing BFST®, Freezie Wrap® Cold Compression and Passive Heel to Hip Stretching with the Knee-Flex®.

  • Consistent stretching will help to break up scar tissue.
  • Inferno Wraps® with deeply penetrating Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy right into your damaged bursa and surrounding joint where you need treatment most (unlike other methods that just heat your skin - like hot water bottles, hot baths, etc.)
  • Cold Compression Freezie Wraps® that relieve 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).
  • Food-grade, non-toxic gel packs that can be chilled in the fridge or freezer.
  • 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.
  • Controlled, comfortable, passive movement and stretching with the Knee-Flex® - producing the exact same, safe, stretch every time!




If Surgery is Required...

Most doctors, physicians and orthopedic specialists will recommend conservative therapy for minor bursa injuries before considering surgery. If you've been suffering and you've tried everything to completely recover from your bursitis injury, you and your doctor may decide to move forward with more drastic treatments to cure your bursitis pain.

If possible, avoiding surgery is the best option, however in some extreme cases the bursa remains thick and swollen causing chronic bursitis pain. Surgical removal of a bursa (a procedure called a bursectomy or resection of a bursa) may be necessary if the bursa has become chronically inflamed. The type of surgery you will have depends on the type of injury you're faced with.

If you need to have surgery to deal with your bursitis injury you need to incorporate the AidMyBursa conservative treatment products during your post-surgery recovery. While using theese conservative treatment methods when recovering from surgery you'll find them to be extremely beneficial for:

  • Reducing post-surgery inflammation with the most effective Cold Compression Wrap available on the market today.

    Treating with effective cold compression means using the Freezie Wrap®.

  • Get a superior level of blood flow circulation with a BFST Inferno Wrap.
  • Enhancing range of motion and elasticity of your soft tissue by increasing healthy blood flow circulation with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy.

    The Inferno Wrap® is the only home treatment method available to receive on-going, daily treatment from Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®).

  • Minimizing scar tissue growth with continuous, consistent, passive movement. You will only ever be able to achieve the same stretch, every time, with little to no resistance that is ideal for healing your bursitis injury with the Knee-Flex® Passive Stretching Device.

    The easy gliding and sturdy wooden track of the Knee-Flex® gives you the same stretch every time for consistent movement of all of the joints, muslces, tendons, ligaments, bursae and soft tissue in your legs from your heel to your hip.

As with any surgery there are risks to every procedure depending on a lot of factors, including your age, the severity of your injury and your level of health going into the procedure. It is always best to discuss all possible risks and complications with your doctor, orthopaedic specialist and/or surgeon before the procedure.

It's important to be aware of the risks you may face with any procedure intended to fix or your bursa.


Generally when it comes to bursitis surgery you'll be faced with options for non-invasive procedures and more invasive solutions. If it's possible to do a non-invasive proceudre, your doctor may suggest a less aggressive procedure such as draining or aspiration of your enlarged bursa.

Drainage of elbow (olecranon) bursitis.

The hope is that the removal of extra fluid from your bursa will reduce your pain, but it may only be a temporary fix if the bursa sac has thickened walls and has chronic inflammation. The cause of fluid build-up will also require treatment with conservative treatment methods following the procedure.


Bursitis Aspiration Surgery

This procedure is most commonly used for elbow bursitis. Your doctor will use a syringe filled with liquid (1% lidocaine) to raise the skin over the bursa and to freeze/numb the area. Your doctor raises the tissue to protect the tendons and ligaments in the elbow. A new needle will then be inserted into the bursa to drain the fluid and reduce the over all size.


Joint Arthrocentesis Surgery

Drainage of shoulder (subacromial) bursitis.

Your doctor will insert a needle into the bursa and drain the fluid. This type of joint aspiration is common for treating bursitis in the knee, wrist, hip or shoulder. This type of procedure is used to protect the joint from further (more invasive) surgery and a more complicated outcome.

Once you've had your bursa drained of the extra fluid, the pressure on your surrounding soft tissue (ligaments, tendons, muscle) should be reduced. Even though this procedure may ease your pain, you'll still need to rest the injury and continue with conservative treatment methods for post-surgery recovery. Your doctor will encourage you to continue with effective cold compression, exercise, blood flow stimulation, and most importantly - rest.

Draining extra fluid from your bursa isn't a cure for your bursitis injury. Your bursa might re-fill with fluid and re-injury is a very large risk to you. If you find that your bursitis has come back and you're suffering even more than before, you may need to have the bursa removed from the joint.


Open Bursitis Surgery (Bursectomy)

Removal of the trochanteric bursa, hip bursectomy.

Traditional open surgery is used when there's a large amount of damage to the bursa tissue, bone fractures in the joint as a result from an acute injury, bone spurs or other injuries from degeneration (aging) of your joint and/or extensive damage to the surrounding soft tissue (tendons, ligaments, muscle). During this procedure one long incision(s) is made in the area of your injury. An open incision this large provides enough room for the surgeon to remove the bursa, shave down any bone spurs and repair any damaged tissue. Open surgery is only ever used for knee and shoulder bursitis.

An open procedure is rarely used for elbow bursitis (only the most extreme cases). In some cases, an open procedure will also be used for larger, more involved hip bursitis removal. However if it's possible to do so, a surgeon will usually remove one or more of the bursae in the hip with arthroscopic surgery.


Arthroscopic Bursisits Surgery (Bursectomy)

A bursectomy will be done arthroscopically if your damaged bursa is accessible through 2 to 4 keyhold incisions in your joint. This type of procedure is common for shoulder (subacromial) bursitis, knee (prepatellar, infrapatellar, pes anserine) bursitis, and hip (iliopsoas, trochanteric) bursitis.

Arthroscopic bursitis surgery will provide the surgeon with a first hand look into the nature of the injury and what work must be done to remove your bursa. During this procedure a thin tube containing a camera and light is inserted through an incision near the joint. Additional surgical tools required to remove/fix your bursa will be inserted into the other keyhole incisions. A shaver is sometimes used to cut the bursa free from the surrounding tissue and then the bursa will be removed. If a bone spur or other problem has caused the bursitis, the spur is removed or the problem is corrected to prevent further issues.

This is a minimally invasive procedure so it may limit the amount of tissue damage from surgery, helping promote a more effective recovery. Your surgeon will preform bursectomy surgery with the goal to have you on the road to recovery faster. Rehabilitation from a bursectomy will depend on your healing ability, rest, your diet, tissue damage, and other procedures done during the surgery.

Generally, recovery time is relatively fast after a bursectomy with normal movement.



Do You Even Need Surgery for Your Bursitis?

If You Need Bursitis Surgery - What's Recovery Like?


Wrist Bursitis Surgery & Recovery

Arthroscopic surgery for chronic wrist bursitis.

Your surgeon will start with a less aggressive approach to deal with your wrist bursitis first. This is done to avoid open surgery to remove the bursa from your wrist. Usually an arthrocentesis procedure is used to treat wrist bursitis. This is where a needle is inserted into the bursa to drain the fluid. If you're suffering from chronic wrist bursitis your doctor may decide to have you undergo an arthroscopic surgery to remove the bursa sac alltogether. No matter what type of procedure you have for your wrist, you'll need to wear a splint on your wrist for 1 to 2 weeks after the surgery. You'll also need to limit weight bearing and lifting of the affected hand and wrist.



Foot Bursitis Surgery & Recovery

Bursae in the foot are known as adventures. This means that your body will create some bursae in the foot in response to damage to the foot (to help compensate for other soft tissue injuries in the foot).

Some of the places where "adventure" bursae will grow in the foot include:

  • the first metatarsal phalangeal joint (the base of the big toe), often associated with a bunion and Morton's Neuroma
  • the base of the second metatarsal phalangeal joint (the base of the second toe)
  • the base of the fifth toe, often associated with a bunionette
  • the bottom of the heel and the bottom of the forefoot
  • the ankle area

Metatarsal bursa and intermetatarsal bursitis injuries respond best to conservative treatments (rest, effective cold compression with a Freezie Wrap® and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy with an Inferno Wrap®).

Conservative treatment methods are the best way to treat foot bursitis of any kind.

Physical therapy will focus on restoring the correct position of bones and soft tissue in the foot. Your doctor won't consider surgery without you first trying conservative treatment methods and correcting the mechanics of your foot in physical therapy. Shoe modification with an orthotic may be the only treatment required, although in severe cases, surgical realignment of the metatarsal bones may be required.

Surgery is considered the last resort! Why? Scar tissue in the foot will cause more problems to the soft tissue in your foot, even more so than the original bursa injury.



Achilles (Ankle or Heel) Bursitis Surgery & Recovery

Achilles/ankle/heel bursitis (retrocalcaneal bursitis), also known as Haglund's Syndrome, can only be treated through open surgery. The medical community has not come up with the most effective type of surgery to deal with Retrocalcaneal Bursa surgery. What is known is there are two different approaches to solving retrocalcaneal bursa pain. (source: US National Library of Medicine and Health)

1. Open surgery with the removal of the retrocalcaneal bursae

Calcaneal (heel) or Achilles bursitis can be very painful - pain can be managed with conservative treatments.

The surgeon may or may not carefully cut away any dead tissue in the Achilles tendon and shave down the calcaneal bone. After the surgery you'll be placed in a short leg cast for 2 weeks with your ankle in a flexed down position. Then you'll be placed in a neutral ankle position for another 2 weeks. To protect the tissue while healing you won't be allowed to bear any weight on your ankle and take part in activities that place weight on your ankle for the first 4 weeks following surgery.

Approximately 6 weeks after surgery, you'll be placed in a walking boot for another 2 weeks. It will be important to stick to your physical therapy appointments and continue exercise at home during your entire recovery process. Complete recovery time for heel bursitis surgery is between 6 months and 2 years.

2. Open surgery by splitting the Achilles tendon to allow access to drain the bursa, cut away dead tissue on the bursa sac or completely remove the bursa.

This tendon-splitting approach has some major drawbacks because it weakens the Achilles tendon and the recovery process to return to full function of the foot is very slow. A build-up of scar tissue may cause more irritation to the foot after recovery, possibly requiring additional conservative treatment methods or even more surgery.



Elbow (Olecranon) Bursitis Surgery & Recovery

The elbow has very poor blood supply and may not heal correctly after open surgery. A build up of scar tissue in the elbow can affect range of motion later on so your doctor/surgeon may opt to use this less invasive procedure for your elbow bursitis...

Elbow bursitis surgery rehabilitation.

If your condition is chronic a small incision will be made over the bursa. Surgery is only done when the bursa is not red, hot, and inflamed. If the bursa has become thickened and enlarged this procedure will involve lifting the skin on your elbow up, over the swelling. If this is the case, there will be a considerable empty 'dead space' left behind where the enlarged bursa once was. This space often fills with blood and fluid after the operation. Your surgeon will apply a firm bandage to reduce the amount of fluid that collects. You may need to visit the doctor to have additional fluid drained from your elbow with a syringe.



Hip (Trochanteric / Iliopsoas) Bursitis Surgery & Recovery

Recovering from iliopsoas (hip) bursitis.

During this procedure your surgeon will make 2 to 3 small incisions in and around your hip. Your surgeon will insert small tools into the hip joint to repair, remove and/or shave your damaged bursa tissue. If trochanteric surgery is being performed, the surgical team will apply pressure to your hip to help open up the area allowing your surgeon access to tissue. If you're suffering from a secondary condition along with bursitis, your surgeon may need to add 1 to 2 more incisions for additional soft tissue repair.

If one of the tendons in your hip need to be cut to allow your bursa to be removed, this tendon may also be lengthened or released (cut) to give your bursa more room in the hip joint. If the tendon is not repaired, the edges will heal and fill in with scar tissue. The tendon will end up being much looser than before you had surgery. Generally, the surgeon wants to make sure your greater trochanter tissue isn't rubbing on the surface of the other tissue in your hip.

Recovering from trochanteric (hip) bursitis.

During post-operative recovery from hip bursitis surgery you'll be on crutches for 2 to 4 weeks. You'll also need to wear a brace for 2 weeks to protect the delicate tissues in your hip and prevent extreme movement. The brace will need to be worn over your clothing during weight bearing activities while still using your crutches. You may also need to wear the brace while you sleep for the first week after surgery.

Recovering from hip bursitis surgery is a slow process. You'll have to attend physical therapy sessions quite a few times a week during your post-surgery recovery. Physical therapy may even take several months. You'll be encouraged to move around as soon as possible, but with care placed on protecting your hip and the tissues as they heal.

During physical therapy you can expect to practive range-of-motion exercises and work your way up to active stretching and strengthening of the muscles and tendons in your hip, thigh and leg. Your physical therapy will include riding a stationary bike 2 times a day, every day, for 5 to 10 minutes.



Shoulder (Subacromial) Bursitis Surgery & Recovery

Suffering with pain from shoulder bursitis?

Shoulder bursitis can be surgically treated with an arthroscopic procedure, using a small camera to see your shoulder joint. Your surgeon will make 2 keyhole incisions at the front of your shoulder. Small instruments will then be inserted into the the shoulder joint. Your surgeon will use these tools to see any tears, bone spurs or loose material, and remove or shaving away dead tissue on your damaged bursa sac (this is also called debridement).

During your intial recovery from surgery you'll have to protect your shoulder and arm by wearing a sling or splint. You'll be encouraged to do normal daily activities, raising your arm waist high, after a few days. Attending physical therapy appointments will help with range of motion, stiffness and swelling. Recovery for shoulder bursitis surgery is usually between 2 to 6 months depending on the amount of work your surgeon had to do to repair / remove the bursa sac in your shoulder.



Knee (Prepatellar, Infrapatellar, Pes Anserine) Bursitis Surgery
& Recovery

Heal after knee bursitis surgery with conservative treatment methods.

If your bursa needs to be removed your surgeon will make an incision into the skin over the length of your bursa. The surgeon will use care to remove the bursa from the surrounding tissue to make sure they don't tear or rupture the bursa itself. Once the bursa is removed the surgeon will use strong 'mattress' sutures on your inner soft tissue and the skin to close the opening. Mattress sutures are used to help fill in the gap ('dead space') left from the bursa that's been removed. These sutures also allow the surgeon to apply tension to the inner tissue and reduce the build-up of scar tissue inside the joint.

Post-operative care after knee bursectomy (removal of the bursa) will begin with a large compression dressing that's applied to your knee. Your whole leg, from groin to ankle, will be completely immobilized for 2 weeks until the wound from surgery is completely healed. Your surgeon may have you start quadricep exercises the day after surgery, this depends on the amount of repair required during the surgery.

Recovery from draining your knee bursitis.

Another option for surgery is drainage of the bursa in your knee. After this procedure your knee and leg will need to be immobilized in a splint. If your surgeon has used gauze to catch any additional fluid that leaks, this gauze dressing will need to be changed at least twice a week. There will now be some 'dead space' left inside of your knee where the bursa fluid once was. As your body tries to heal the area, even more fluid may collect inside this space in your knee joint. If this happens your surgeon will tell you to continue immobilizing your leg and knee to reduce the build up of fluid.


What Happens After the Surgery?

Ask any doctor and they'll tell you that the success of your surgery depends on your level of dedication to regular at home care of your bursa injury. Most of our bursitis post-op clients have treated themselves successfully through regular use of the Freezie Wrap®, Inferno Wrap® and the Knee-Flex®.


Using these therapies will lessen the chance and/or severity of joint degeneration and muscular atrophy during your rehabilitation process. In some cases our customers have prevented the onset of degeneration through regular use of these treatments. They will even combine these therapeutic treatments with the rehabilitation plan recommended by their doctor, surgeon or physical therapist.

 



Getting Started with Your Post-Operative Rehabilitation

If you've had surgery on your bursitis injury then your doctor will quickly get you on the path to rehabilitation. The aggressiveness of your rehabilitation efforts and your injury's ability to heal will depend on a variety of factors including (but not limited to):

  • your age, overall health, and activity level
  • the state of your bursitis injury before surgery (severe injuries like thickened bursa sac, tendon or ligament damage, an open wound, bone damage or fracture will require more intense surgery)
  • the type of surgery you had
  • how soon you need to return to normal activity

Know that no 2 rehabilitation plans are alike - The less invasive your surgery is,
the quicker your road to recovery will be.


Physical therapy after your bursitis surgery is important for recovery.

The goal of a rehabilitation plan is to manage pain and swelling while improving function, strength, and range of motion. Ultimately at the end of your recovery you'll regain strength and return to full activity. In order to achieve this you'll most likely spend a lot of time with a physical therapist after your surgery, but as your healing progresses, emphasis will be placed on your personal at home treatment.

The success of your rehabilitation will depend on your dedication to working with your physical therapist while also managing your recovery on a daily basis at home.

You will need to wear a cast or brace after achilles bursitis surgery.

No matter what type of surgery you've had (or even if you don't need surgery) your home therapy routine can be improved by controlling initial and on-going pain/swelling, increasing blood flow to heal your bursa injury, and consistent, passive movement to increase range of motion so that you can achieve long-term, positive results.

All of this can easily be done by incorporating a Freezie Wrap®, Inferno Wrap®, and Knee-Flex® into your rehabilitation routine. Regular treatment with a Freezie Wrap®, Inferno Wrap®, and Knee-Flex® will decrease your time spent in recovery.


Your Post-op Recovery Time can be Reduced...


Treat yourself with effective cold compression to reduce pain and swelling from bursitis.

With the use of Freezie Wrap® cold compression, Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy with an Inferno Wrap®, and consistent stretching with a Knee-Flex® following surgery.

Cold compression is recommended by doctors following a bursectomy to treat your pain in a natural, non-addictive way and to reduce swelling. It's hard to find the most effective from of Cold Compression. Ice and sub-par wraps warm up too quickly or numb your skin beyond feeling - causing even more damage in your already-damaged joint! Effective Cold Compression can only be achieved with regular use of a Freezie Wrap®.

Get a superior level of blood flow circulation with a BFST Inferno Wrap.

After the incision site has healed, speak with your doctor about the use of our Inferno Wraps® utilizing Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy. Using our Inferno Wraps® as soon as you can following your surgery will minimize the growth of scar tissue that forms as you heal. Treating scar tissue is the most important step following surgery, especially in a joint to improve its range of motion.

Leaving the scar tissue untreated can lead to stiffness, chronic pain, osteoarthritis or other chronic conditions. BFST® encourages more oxygen and nutrients to flow to the area to speed healing and improve the strength of the soft tissue in your joint.

Consistent stretching will help to break up scar tissue.

As you maintain healthy blood flow circulation in your affected joint it's also important to keep moving. If you stop moving your joint will stiffen up and surrounding muscle and soft tissue will begin to atrophy (waste away). You can strengthen your joint, muscles and soft tissue in your hip, knee, ankle and foot after bursitis surgery by stretching consistently with a Knee-Flex®.

The Knee-Flex® is the only study, easy gliding, wooden track device available to give you the consistent, passive stretching you need to improve your range of motion. Consistent stretching at home without the help of a physical therapist is hard and might even end up hurting your joint and damaging your bursa/tissue even more.

Only AidMyBursa offers a 3-Step Recovery Process that gets you on your feet faster, speeding up your overall healing with long-lasting, sustainable results.




Pre-Surgical and Post-Surgical Treatments

Step 1 - Reduce Pain & Swelling with the Freezie Wrap®

The 1st step for conservative treatment of your bursitis before and after surgery is to reduce 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 requiredfor your body to heal naturally after surgery. This is why doctors and surgeons recommend cold compression therapy within the first 72 hours of an injury and following bursitis surgery.

Reduce pain and swelling after hip bursitis surgery with a Freezie Wrap

Cold compression therapy is recommended to reduce pain, swelling and tissue damage. Many doctors, surgeons and physical therapists consider cold compression therapy to be the gold standard for treatment of inflammation and pain. On-going cold compression treatments can reduce, or even eliminate, the need for NSAIDs or other medications that can be harmful to your body.

Cold compression therapy is known and trusted by most medical professionals. This is why for years doctors, trainers and other medical professionals have recommended RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) to treat the pain and swelling of fresh injuries, chronic pain, after any re-injury, and especially after surgery.

Although RICE can help to treat these symptoms, ice and inferior 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 with effective cold compression, so ice and blue gel packs (full of anti-freeze and chemicals) have been the only choice up until now.

The Freezie Wrap treats pain, swelling and inflammation while reducing tissue damage.

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. You can also get rid of those cold packs that warm up soon after you pull them out of the freezer and gel that pools around your injury putting the short-term cold everywhere expect for where you need it most - on your bursitis injury!

The Freezie Wrap® is the cold compression tool you need for your post-surgical recovery to treat yourself in an effective and convenient way.

When used on a bursitis injury after surgery, our Freezie Wraps® provide:

  • The highest-level of cold compression to quickly decrease pain, swelling, inflammation and draw the heat out of your affected joint.
  • Tailored wraps that are available to conform around and treat bursae for every joint of the body.
  • Effective cold compression that is unlike any other cold compression wrap out there.
  • Cold temperatures that stay right over your bursitis injury for the entire length of your treatment.
  • A home-based solution with consistent (daily) cold treatments that reduces swelling fast, decreases tissue damage after surgery, and opens up your joint to receive the blood flow circulation needed to heal quickly and naturally.
  • Heavier, more substantial gel packs containing a special formulation of gel - called RigiGel®.

What's RigiGel®?

RigiGel® is our trademarked name for a unique gel formula that's made of food-grade, non-toxic material that holds the cold for an extended period of time. This specially formulated gel also features non-migrating gel technology that makes our line of Freezie Wraps® truly different from any other wrap available on the market.

RigiGel® is a patented formula that gives you:

RigiGel's unique gel formula offers non-migrating gel that stays put over your bursa injury.
  • More cooling power per pound than standard cold compression wraps.
  • More gel than other wraps, meaning every time you put one on it will keep your joint cold for a longer period; pain relief is enhanced and swelling is better controlled.

Our special RigiGel® 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, just perfectly cold enough to give you the most effective cold compression available.

The cushioned gel will wrap around your joint and it won't budge for the entire treatment period. You'll no longer have to deal with annoying pooling around your joint or have to hold a hard block of ice on your injury!


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

 

Treat yourself with effective cold compression to reduce pain and swelling from bursitis.

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 bursa and joint after surgery, you also limit the amount of healing that needs to occur. This is a very important step to heal bursitis injuries faster and with less pain after surgery! This is why you need to treat your bursitis injury after surgery, when you notice pain / swelling / inflammation, or directly after a re-injury. Applying a Freezie Wrap® right away will stop the damage immediately and unblock your blood vessels to let your body's natural blood flow in to start healing the tissue.

The Freezie Wrap® = Effecive Cold Compression Therapy

 

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 joint under control! After you get rid of the swelling for good you can start actually dealing with your bursitis injury and the healing needed after surgery.


Use Cold Compression Freezie Wraps®:

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



Step 2 - Improve Circulation & Prevent Re-Injury with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy
Increase blood flow to speed up healing of your hip (trochanteric, iliopsoas) bursitis during surgery recovery.

There are a lot of people that think their bursitis injury is gone after their swelling and inflammation are gone and their joint feels better. They also make the mistake of returning to regular activities too soon without proper time for healing. The truth is that healing takes time and after the swelling is gone your bursitis injury isn't even close to being fully healed.

After the inflammation in and around your bursa has been reduced, providing extra blood flow and strengthening the tissue around your bursitis is recommended. Believe it or not, the best time for you to focus on avoiding re-injury and strengthening your weakened joint is when the swelling's gone and your injury's started to heal. It's vital that you don't go back to activities too soon because you might bring on a major set-back in your recovery...

  • Have you recently re-injured your bursa by returning to your normal daily activities too quickly?
  • How many times in the past have you aggravated your bursitis injury just trying to perform basic tasks around your house?
  • Is your bursitis preventing you from work or activities you love to do?

If this sounds like you - You're not alone...


Most people we deal with tell us these scenarios have happened to them many times in the past. The real challenge is how to promote blood flow to your injured bursa without causing further injury. This goal is even more complicated by the fact that your bursitis is most likely located in one of your most commonly used joints in everyday life (your shoulder, wrist, elbow, hip, knee, ankle or toes).

Tendonitis, strained muscles, torn ligaments and overall joint pain can often occur at the same time - weakening not only your damaged bursa, but also all of the soft tissue surrounding your bursitis in your weakened joint.

 


What can you do to actually start healing your bursitis injury?

Increase blood flow to speed up healing of your shoulder (subacromial) bursitis during surgery recovery.

The answer is simple. Your body can heal itself and it's the blood in your body that makes it all happen. Your blood is how everything that's good inside of you is transported directly to your injured bursa tissue. Your blood carries oxygen, nutrients, water and antibodies right to the source of your injury and pain. Bringing proper blood flow to your injured bursa is essential to healing.

Promoting blood flow around injured tissue to help the body heal itself is a concept that's been used for centuries. Oxygen and nutrients, carried in your own blood, are critical for the body to heal itself. Without proper blood flow, recovering from your bursitis injury will be delayed... Sometimes for a very long period of time.

Even though the concept is simple, improving blood flow to your bursa can be difficult. When an injury occurs to the bursa in one of your major joints, the challenges are even greater. Traditional methods require you to move your damaged bursa and sore/stiff joint in order to promote blood flow. This same motion that promotes blood flow can also make your pain and bursitis much worse (especially if you need to immobilize your joint during surgery recovery). Relying on movement along to increase blood flow puts you in danger of re-injuring your bursa.

So what do you do when you need to increase blood flow, but you can't move your joint without re-injuring your tissue?


This is where the Inferno Wrap® and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) come in!

 

The Inferno Wrap increases blood flow to speed up healing, soften scar tissue and prevent re-injury.

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

The only way to get BFST® is through use of an Inferno Wrap®.

The Inferno 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 damaged bursa 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 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 bursitis, increasing the blood flow right where your injury is!

Increase blood flow to speed up healing of your elbow (olecranon) bursitis during surgery recovery.
  • When treating bursitis or 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 Inferno Wrap® is the most highly effective blood flow stimulation device that you'll find on the market that is approved by the FDA for use in the home or hospital.

Regular treatments with an Inferno Wrap® can reduce pain and stiffness from scar tissue and increase overall flexibility in your joint. Increased blood flow will whisk away damaged tissue, toxins, and any bacteria in or around your injured bursa to promote more effective healing. Getting rid of toxins will allow all of the positive healing processes to start in your injury. Increasing blood flow will also increase the amount of oxygen that's being sent to your injured tissue AND boost your tissue's ability to absorb oxygen. (reference: 1)


How Does the Inferno Wrap® Promote BFST®?

Electromagnetic energy increases blood flow on a deep tissue level.

Every Inferno Wrap® contains a patented Energy Web® that's flexible and shaped to conform around the area you're treating. The Energy Web® provides a uniform wave of healing electromagnetic energy over the entire treatment area. This energy travels deep inside your soft tissue to stimulate blood flow on the deep tissue level where it's needed to heal your injury. It's the electromagnetic energy provided provided by our Inferno Wraps® that's crucial to the healing process.

Electromagnetic energy is the only way to get your blood flow moving on a deep tissue level for these reasons:

  • Electromagnetic energy waves are not heat waves.

  • When emitted from the Inferno Wrap®, electromagnetic energy waves penetrate right through your skin and fat layers until they get to your damaged tissue.
  • Once these energy waves reach your injured bursa, they're absorbed and quickly converted into heat energy rgith at the location of your injury
  • The idea of electromagnetic energy ways is slowly catching on in North American, but the truth is, it's a technology that's been used for decades
Electromagnetic energy has been studied by researchers for decades.

Many people just don't know that over the past 30 years, researchers in Japan and China have completed extensive studies on the use of electromagnetic energy for healing and their findings have been impressive. Success has been reported in studies from countries like Sweden and Germany. Research is continuing and soon, much of North American will know what the Far East and Europe has known for a long time...

Electromagnetic energy provides a wide range of health benefits for those not only suffering from bursitis, but for many other soft tissue injuries as well.

Regular treatment with the electromagnetic energy in our Inferno Wraps® will ensure:

  • Your pain will be reduced.
  • Your injured bursa will heal at an accelerated rate with reduced potential for re-injury.
  • Your joints will have a larger range of motion and increased extensibility of collagen tissue in your joint and around your bursa. (Chapter 9 of "Therapeutic Heat and Cold", 4th edition. (amazon.com link - Ed. Justus F. Lehmann, M.D., Williams, and Wilkin)


Electromagnetic Energy = Increased Blood Flow = More Oxygen, More Nutrients and Less Toxins = Faster Healing

 

Get a superior level of blood flow circulation with a BFST Inferno Wrap.

Our Inferno Wraps® are uniquely patented designs that are better than other alternatives out there for more than just the electromagnetic energy they provide! Our 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 to increase blood flow circulation.

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

Step 3 - Use the Knee-Flex® to Exercise At Home & Prevent Scar Tissue Build-Up
Stretching is needed for recovery after bursitis surgery

The final step in bursitis surgery rehabilitation is stretching - this is a critical step for complete recovery from your bursitis!

When you're bursa is injured, stretching plays a huge role in treating your injury with or without surgery... This is especially true if you're immobilizing your joint after surgery with a cast, brace or by using crutches. Long-term immobilization of your joint can lead to massive amounts of scar tissue that stiffens the entire area and causes your surrounding tissue to atrophy (waste away).

For many people stretching seems like a basic thing but you'd be surprised by how many people there are that don't understand the importance of stretching any bursitis injury, especially after surgery.

Each of your legs support an intense amount of weight everyday. When you suffer from a bursitis injury in your hip, knee, ankle, heel or foot you're unable to support your own weight in the same way you used to. This can make simple tasks like walking or even standing extremely difficult for you. A full recovery from your bursitis injury (especially after surgery) depends on your commitment to stretching and strengthening exercises.

Physical therapists will manually manipulate your leg to increase flexibility of your bursitis after surgery.

Physical therapists prescribe gentle stretching of these major joints in your legs before making the transition to crutches after surgery and as you recover from having to use immobilization tools like a brace. They don't prescribe this to annoy you - it's in fact the most important part of your bursitis recovery. You probably know someone that chose not to do any stretching - an they paid a high price for it. By not listening to their therapist (ie. not stretching), there is a huge chance of re-injurying your bursa or even getting a more serious injury than your original bursitis.

Ask any physical therapist and they'll tell you the key to a successful recovery is commitment to at home exercise!


Our Knee-Flex Passive Strething Device will increase flexibility of your healing tissue and help to break up scar tissue that forms.

It may seem hard to believe but it's true... Stretching is the secret of healing your bursa after surgery. Consistent stretching is one of the only solutions to break up scar tissue that forms in your joint as it heals.

You can achieve safe, consistent, controlled leg movement and stretching with the Knee-Flex® Passive Bursitis Stretching Device. This device is designed to provide you with a sturdy track to move your hip, knee, ankle and foot; allowing you to stretch out and elongate the soft tissue in your leg, work out scar tissue in your joints and increase your overall flexibility / mobility.

Stretching is amazing for your joints and will bring your overall post-op rehab to a whole new level. Stretching with a Cold Compression Freezie Wrap® and BFST® Inferno Wrap® is even better!

 


The Knee-Flex® is a Special Design Created for People Just Like You

The Knee-Flex is a unique design that gives you the consistent bursa stretching you need after surgery.

I spent a very long time searching for this treatment option to specifically aid in the recovery of bursitis. I was introduced to a carpenter (let's call him Paul) about 1 year ago. Paul had designed and created this device especially for his friend Earl that was trying to recovery from a bad knee injury. The muscles, tendons and ligaments in and around his knee joint were seizing up from decreased use (immobility).

Earl was instructed by his doctor to put his foot in a plastic garbage bag while sitting. After his foot was in the bag, Early was supposed to stretch his leg and strengthen his knee by sliding his foot forward and backward across the floor. Earl complained of the intense pain he felt when the bag would crase, fold over, and jerk his knee around with inconsistent movement. If Earl had continued down this path, he would've re-injured his knee and end up with even more serious injuries in his hip, lower back, thigh and foot!

The Knee-Flex sturdy hardwood track gives you an easy gliding motion that helps you exercise and stretch after surgery in the comfort of your own home.

Luckily for Earl, his friend Paul created the very first Knee-Flex® Passive Stretching Device. Early's knee recovered 10 years ago, but John continues making more and more of the Knee-Flex® devices every year - mostly for therapy clinics and hospitals in Canada that keep asking for his Knee-Flex® Device.

This seemingly simple device has assisted in the recovery of thousands of patients that have suffered many various injuries. Once a patient is on the path to healing, this device assists the patient in making a fast and full recovery.

The Knee-Flex® Passive Bursitis Stretching Device helps with:

  • Bursitis post-surgery rehabilitation efforts.
  • Recovery from serious bursitis injuries in the hip, knee, ankle and foot.
  • Increasing flexibility in surrounding joint tissue (tendons, ligaments and muscles).
  • Stretching out scar tissue that forms in the joint while your bursitis heals with or without surgery.
  • Decreasing joitn stiffness.
  • Preventing atrophy in surrounding soft tissue from joint immobilization.

The value of this device cannot be underestimated.

Anyone suffering from hip, knee, ankle, heel or foot bursitis knows the importance of stretching their joints smoothly and without excessive load. The Knee-Flex® operates without the use of tension bands or any added force aside from the weight of your own leg. Basically, if you're on the road to recovery from a bursitis injury or recovering from surgery, this device is the first thing your would start using to gain flexibility back in these joints.

 


The Knee-Flex® = A Medical Grade Device Used by the Experts

The Knee-Flex is extremely portable, giving you the option to bring it in to your physical therapists office.

The Knee-Flex® Bursitis Stretching Device was created to allow your heel to slide smoothly in a controlled environment, minimizing the chance of re-injury and additional pain. Physical therapists encounter the same issues every day when attempting to work with people who are undergoing therapy from a serious bursitis injury or recovery from bursitis surgery. This is why most therapists in Canada instantly purchased these same devices for their own clinics and have been ordering this device for 10 years!

If you're recovering from serious pain, it allows a more controlled and comfortable method to stretch and strengthen your hip, knee, ankle, heel and foot as well as all of the soft tissue (tendons, ligaments, muscles) in your entire leg. The sliding mechanism is extremely smooth and durable, as well as linear - something that becomes very important in such cases.


The Knee-Flex is an FDA registered device, under facility number 30006334471 and product listing number D150272

The Knee-Flex® is an FDA Registered Medical Device and is suitable for repetitive, industrial usage in hospitals and therapeutic clinics. This device is deemed safe to use without medical assistance and is also available for use at home.


When used properly, the Knee-Flex® has a proven track record of assisting in the speedy recovery of many people suffering from bursitis. With regular use of the Knee-Flex® at home, you'll be able to:

Our Knee-Flex Passive Strething Device will increase flexibility of your healing tissue and help to break up scar tissue that forms.
  • Build muscle strength in your hip, thigh, calf, and Achilles.
  • Increase hip, knee, ankle, heel and foot joint mobility and range of motion (ROM).
  • Speed overall healing of your trochanteric, iliopsoas, olecranon, Achilles, calcaneal, and/or metatarsal bursitis.
  • Prevent soft tissue (tendon, ligament, muscle) loss (atrophy) around your hip, knee, ankle and foot.
  • Improve soft tissue / muscular function and capability.
  • Encourage overall joint flexibility in your entire leg.
  • Facilitate a proper warm up for regular exercise.
  • Promote healthy circulation in all of the joints in your leg (hip, knee, ankle, foot).

Knee-Flex® Stretching = The Best Way to
Deal With Scar Tissue

 

Scar tissue grows to protect your bursa injury after surgery.

Even when you're injured and in pain you need to keep moving to break up scar tissue that's forming around your bursa. Moving when you're injured is hard. Since moving while injured can be painful - most people think it's better to stop moving, rest their body and hope that their bursitis will heal all on its' own after surgery. Even though rest is important to recovery too much rest during the recovery process will increase the amount of scar tissue in your joint.

During the healing process your body will fill in tears in your soft tissue and bursa sac with dense, brittle tissue called "scar tissue". This process is no different after you've had surgery to remove your bursa or drain fluid from your joint. The human body will use scar tissue as a temporary solution and will try to build the scar tissue as fast as possible to heal the area. Scar tissue can form fast to bind everything together in your joint, 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) soft tissue would. Scar tissue fibers will lay down over top of the damage in and around your bursa in a cluttered, messy and jumbled up way.

Imagine throwing a bunch of drinking straws in the air... Those straws will land in a random, unorganized way. It seems silly to think that those straws could land perfectly straight and all in the same direction.

This is how scar tissue works. The scar tissue that forms on your bursa will be unorganized and won't line up properly with the healthy tissue surrounding your joint. This scar tissue will also attach to everything in and around your bursa, including the surrounding healthy tissue as well. This can result in a long-term fusing together of your tissue that stiffens up your entire joint, reducing your mobility and making your bursitis injury even more painful!

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

This is why scar tissue is weak and only a temporary solution to heal your bursitis injury. Scar tissue is something that needs to be dealt with fast. If you try to get back into your regular daily activities after surgery with a mound of scar tissue in your joint you'll have a higher risk of re-injury. Scar tissue is just not built to withstand the pressures of regular activity.

If you have an injured bursa with a lot of scar tissue and re-injure that tissue, even more scar tissue will grow to fill in those tears. If you keep falling into the dangerous cycle of re-injuring your bursa without proper treatment you could end up with massive amounts of scar tissue in your joint. Your ability to move your affected joint in a normal way will be impaired as the amount of scar tissue increases.


The only solution to truly repair your pulled muscle for good is to break up scar tissue and avoid re-injury.

 

This can easily be achieved with regular use of the Knee-Flex®. This device provides a sturdy hardwood track with an easy gliding motion giving you the same stretch everytime. Your movement is controlled reducing your risk of re-injury. The result is a consistent stretch that helps to break down your scar tissue and improve flexibility during your post-op recovery.



Are You Dealing with Rehabilitation After Bursitis Surgery (Bursectomy)?

We Have Answers that can Help...

Most cases of chronic bursitis injuries will respond well to conservative treatments, however, surgery will be needed in some cases (especially if your bursa needs to be removed). Undergoing bursitis surgery, whether you're having your bursa drained or removed, can be a scary and challenging time for most.

The Internet and any medical professionals available to you (your surgeon, orthopaedic specialist and/or physical therapist) will provide a wealth of information and details on the surgery itself, but it can be a challange to fully understand the medical terminology used, how your body reacts to the surgery and what comprehensive rehabilitation plan will get your body healed as soon as possible.

Surgery in itself is not the end of the journey, it is merely
the beginning of a new chapter. Your rehabilitation efforts will have an important impact on how soon you can return to living and enjoying your normal daily life.

It truly takes a cohesive rehab plan after surgery - incorporating conservative therapy, rest and physical therapy/exercise - to ensure a complete recovery takes hold. There is no single answer and each individual experience in rehabilitation is different.

We here at AidMyBursa provide suggestions and options for people to help get them through this life changing event. We assist many people in shaping an individual course of action to help them heal after surgery.

Living with pain is never easy as it affects your entire lifestyle. Living with pain during or after intensive surgery with a lengthy rehabilitation period can be even harder! Nothing is more important than making the proper decision when it comes to treating your bursitis and joint pain after surgery.

Rehabilitation at home, while attending regular physical therapy or doctor appointments, is vital for your overall recovery. Consistent exercise and conservative treatment on a daily basis during your rehabilitation, while working with your doctor, surgeon or physical therapist, is key!

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,

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,

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 went 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.

Dear MendMeShop,

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

Dear MendMeShop,

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

Dear MendMeShop,

I am very pleased, especially with the inferno wrap. At first when I received it, I was wondering if it was going to really help, more than my heating pad. I can tell you today, my wrist has gotten so much better! I use the inferno wrap every evening in my down time before heading to bed, on the weekend did use it much more and believe that did help. I had severely stretched/pulled the tendons in my wrist, became very painful, going about the routines of life. I am so very happy with the purchase and am a big fan of the Mendmeshop, thanks for helping me to get my life back on the road to being somewhat normal! I do like the freezie wrap too, being able to put it on and leave it there but still move around. I will surely recommend your site to anyone I know in the future that injures themselves and wants to be on the road to recovery as soon as possible.

Dear MendMeShop,

I'm a believer in your products. My wife had plantar fasciitis a few years ago. I did some research and came across your website. What impressed me the most and encouraged me to purchase was the response I read from your founder to a naysayer whom had never even tried your wraps. This guy was bashing your products when all others were praising them. Your owner invited him to Canada with airfare included to tour the headquarters! Anyway, I figured it was the real deal and so did he after that! My wife's brother is a chiropractor she literally healed her foot with the use of your inferno wrap and another treatment in a couple of weeks! I personally have Golfers elbow in both arms. I've been using the Inferno wrap for about 5 days so far. I haven't used the Freezie wrap yet as I really haven't much pain and no swelling. I definitely feel that it's working already. I'm confident that within a couple of weeks or more I'll be good as new! Thanks again for being part of such a wonderful company that stands behind its product! Sincerely, Jim Rossi

Dear MendMeShop,

The Knee Inferno Wrap is single-handily the best investment I have ever made for my knees, ever! Allow me to explain why, starting with a little knee history. In 1989 I tore my right ACL playing intramural basketball at a local community college. The college picked a cheap doctor & treated me as if I only had a torn meniscus. As a student, I did not have insurance of my own & I thought it was normal for my knee to keep popping out of socket after having surgery. About five years later, I’m now living in Houston Texas, I broke my knee again, really bad, couldn’t walk, severe damage. Had insurance this time and really great doctor (little did I know he was the Houston Oilers Team doctor) and he finds that my ACL had been torn all these years & I would be lucky to save it but probably have to have a cadaver ACL, sorry but that was out of the question, it freaked me out thinking about it. Doctor saved my knee, made it really tight & rehab was really difficult. Since 1994 I have not been able to bend my knee & put the back of my heal to my hip, always had about a 3-4 inch gap. After the first two days using the Inferno Wrap I was touching my heal to my butt, WOW! I have also had my left meniscus operated on & had the same issue, but not as bad, now I can completely sit down on my left knee with no pain, the right is still coming along but at least I can still sit down on top my feet. I’m 48 years old, I am extremely active for my age, I’m a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instructor & competitive fighter. I starting competing this summer & won my first tournament in June, not long after I got the Knee Inferno. I was able to take it with me, use it before my match & able to fight like never before. I took up long-boarding as well as a means of cardio training since I hate to run for the oblivious reasons, and it has been a great joy to do that. The Knee Inferno is a part of me now for the rest of my life, I use it every night (sometimes I forget) and the difference in the morning is incredible. I tell everyone in my gym that have knee problems, & as you can imaging we have knee issues in an MMA gym. Please let me know what I can do to do that. Thank you.

Dear MendMeShop,

At the end of the 2009 school year, (I'm a teacher) I developed plantar fasciitis in my right foot. I remember literally being in agony the last day of school and calling my orthopedic surgeon for an emergency appointment. He saw me, prescribed ice, supportive shoes, and offered to give me a shot of corticosteroid. He informed me that the shot might help but it also might make it worse! Needless to say, with that comment, I passed on the shot. I was really having a hard time with the pain. I began to search on the internet to find out all I could about plantar facsciitis and possible regimens to follow to aleviate my problem.. One site led to another and I finally found MendMeShop. MendMeShop offered a foot wrap that sounded like the perfect way to ice my foot. The plantar Freezie gel pack didn't freeze solid and the wrap molded perfectly to my foot. It certainly beat a tub full of hard ice! The condition is now gone from my right foot. I routinely exercise fairly vigorously including jogging on the treadmill. I would never have been able to do that last summer!

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 Freeze Wraps to reduce the inflammation, for which they worked great. Last week was the first time I tried the Infernowrap on my right knee and it seems to help just from one treatment. I plan to use it every night when I get back from work. I used the knee Inferno wrap again last night and put it on the medium power and it's helping tremendously. I'm able to bend my knee better and walk with more stability without leaning too much on my left knee to compensate for the injured knee.

Dear MendMeShop,

I'm regularly using both Leg and Plantar Inferno Wraps now and I'm already seeing extreme/good results. Basically I'm doing lots of running now and enjoy competing 5k's & 10k's. Hopefully full marathon soon and to achieve better results I need to train hard; consequences [of this] are typical running injuries. Obviously I'm treating my Plantar Fascia [with the Plantar Inferno Wrap], and using the Leg Inferno Wrap I'm treating my calf and hamstring. Both Inferno Wraps I should say are user friendly / easy to use except you need to be near electrical outlet to operate this gadget. I should say this equipment is a big help to the runners world.

Dear MendMeShop,

Thank you!!! So far it's helping. My daughter is a pitcher and has been having treatment on her forearm. We are trying to get her well before the season begins at school. It is always a pleasure doing business with a company who genuinely cares about the quality of it's product, it's effectiveness and customer service. Please don't change a thing about how you do business there are not enough companies like yours in that respect! My family has owned small businesses through out the years and quality of work/product, customer service, satisfaction and respect were always our main concerns too! Angela

Dear MendMeShop,

I can tell you I have already seen the difference and good effect, and i only used them (Back/Hip Inferno and Leg/Arm Inferno Wraps) for one week. Big test was Saturday when I went to cut my grass and after had no pain in my leg. I am glad I found you on the internet and it made sense to me to try it.

Dear MendMeShop,

So far, so good! I've used the shoulder treatment 4x a day for a week now and seen a marked improvement in my shoulder with both flex ability and pain relief. P.S. As a follow up one week after the initial comments... Indeed, after a couple weeks of use, the pain totally subsided. Thanks!!!
