Dear MendMeShop,

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

Dear MendMeShop,

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

Dear MendMeShop,

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 just wanted to let you know that your Inferno and Freezie products worked very well for my elbow problem. It did take more time than the initial warranty so I appreciate your company extending this time period. Your communication via email and telephone, explaining the correct procedure for the use of your products, were key. This allowed me to see that I was not using them exactly as I should and it made a big difference. I used them to the letter and today my elbow pain is gone - completely. I was ready to go to a surgeon so this was a much better alternative. Continue the good work!

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 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.

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 sustained a re-injury to the lateral right knee in a hiking incident on a wet path. Initially, I treated with anti-inflammatory medication, ice, elevation and knee brace. This injury was very similar to the previous knee injury, so I thought my knee would heal without seeking orthopedic evaluation. I started using a heating pad with a massage feature to relieve pain and found that the heat helped tremendously, but did not radiate deep enough into my knee. Since I am a Certified Rehabilitation RN, I started researching the Internet looking for a product that would provide radiant heat. I was happy to discover your Inferno Knee Wrap. I have been using it several times a day for several weeks and I am now pain free and functionally able to resume all activities. I still continue using the Inferno Knee Wrap on a daily basis in hopes that I can prevent another knee injury. Thank you for such a wonderful product.

Dear Sir, I am writing to let everyone know how wonderfully the Inferno Wrap works! I'd been suffering with plantar fascitis for a month, I tried a splint, shoe inserts, rest, ice, stretching. It was improving, oh so slowly. However, once I got my Inferno Wrap, everything changed and within two days I was walking on my foot! I still get pain after being on my feet all night at work, and reapply the Wrap when I go home and am good to go again. It's a miracle! The fact that you have a money back guarantee makes it so safe to purchase. Thank you again, Loretta

Dear MendMeShop,

Dear Mendmeshop, I would like to thank Mendmeshop for being such a blessing. I have always been a runner all my life and last November 2010 it finally caught up to me. I was in severe pain with my foot and I didn't understand why after further investigation I realized that I had tendonitis of my foot. I was devastated because the pain was almost unbearable at times. I could barely sit down or stand up for periods of time without being in excruciating pain. I never thought that I would be able to work out again, until finally, I discovered your shop. Needless to say that after using the inferno wrap and Night tread foot splint I am running again!!!! Every now and then I experience some discomfort with my foot after work out or whatever but that s understandable you guys are truly, truly, truly, a blessing thank you all and God Bless because I got my life back!

Dear MendMeShop,

I have been using the Inferno & Freezie Wraps since November,2012. I saw an orthopedic doctor after Thanksgiving and have been going to occupational therapy (3) days per week. I was told by my ortho doctor to continue to use the items that I had purchased from you (I brought them in on my initial visit with him). I am currently using the inferno wrap as soon as I wake up in the morning, then continue to do my daily wrist and arm exercises. I use the freezie wrap when I am finished. While working I use a tennis elbow brace and I am also using it while doing housework or other chores where I am using my arm alot. My arm is improving slowly as I am working (4) days a week as a chef for 12-14 hours per day. My ortho doctor told me that it would take some time to heal completely. I don't see him until the end of February (3 months since initial visit). So far I am seeing improvement in both pain management and flexibility. I believe the combination of therapy sessions and the use of your wrap treatments are the key to a successful treatment plan. I'll keep you informed of my progress. Thanks again for your help and guidance.

Dear MendMeShop,

Just a little note to thank you for your wonderful products-they really work. Some months ago I was diagnosed with a meniscus tare, after seeing the specialist and getting an injection which only temporarily took away the pain. Facing the possibility of having to have surgery I looked in the internet for an alternative treatment-when I came across Mend Me Shop. Before I started the treatment it was painful and difficult to walk, now I am walking an average of 14,000 steps a day without pain or discomfort. Pastor Geli, Th.D

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 have to say I was very skeptical and only bought this product because of the 60 day return policy, and I waited a long time to send this email. I want to say THANK YOU for this product. I am not completely pain free but would say I am 90 percent better and some days (still rare I admit) I don't think about my feet! I work on my feet all day in the medical field and I was really discouraged about my pain. Even on bad days now, a 20 minute session really helps, and the bad days are far fewer. It seems like a lot of money, but for me it has been worth every penny. Thanks again for this product, and I plan to keep using it and hope to become pain free!

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

Dear MendMeShop,

I still am amazed at how the inferno wrap helped! I don't remember if I told you this, but about 20 years ago I had orthoscopic surgery on my knee. It never got back to normal. Lost a lot of flexibility in that knee and suffered with pain mostly at night. Thought it was arthritis. It felt out of joint and I was painful to straighten it at night. And when I would get up out of bed or after sitting for awhile I would have to "ease" into position to be able to walk on it. Last fall, I injured my knee in the garden. It was very painful to bear weight on it. In fact I was scooting around the house in an office chair on wheels. The doctor said the 'popping' in my knee was due to out-of-place ligament from the orthoscopic surgery. I started using the inferno wrap and ice wrap alternatively and still can't believe how fast my knee heeled. I no longer use either. About a week ago I started doing water aerobics and it feels soooo good! I do have a lot of arthritis, and it's bone-on-bone. However the pain in straightening that knee is no longer there! All those years of pain seem more like a bad dream! It's wonderful to be able to get up from sitting and move freely! Now my goal is to strengthen my knee with exercise. Thank you so much for the wraps!

Dear MendMeShop,

A couple of years ago I helped my husband cut firewood on a hillside. I began to experience pain in my Achilles tendon shortly after we had finished getting all of the firewood cut, split and stacked. I limped through the winter and in the spring began to worry that I wouldn't be able to take care of my gardens. I finally went to the doctor and was prescribed physical therapy. The PT did help with the pain but didn't really "cure" the problem. I continued home physical therapy for another year and began to research therapies to help the tendon. I wanted to avoid surgery if possible. I came across the MendMeShop website and read about the products recommended for Achilles tendon. The cost seemed minimal compared to what I had already spent at the doctor and physical therapist. I ordered the Inferno Wrap and the Freezie Wrap for the ankle and used them according to the directions. I felt great pain relief and the flexibility in my Achilles returned within a few weeks of treatments. I have also been using a night splint following my last Inferno Wrap night treatment before retiring. With that regimen, I have been able to avoid a surgical tendon correction and have been able to resume my normal busy activities. Thank you MendMeShop for your great products and customer service follow-up of the shipment of products.

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,

Dear Paul, I wanted to e-mail you and let you know how things are going. In your last e-mail to me you made a very profound statement that I had never heard before. I have been to several doctors over the past 10 years and not any one of them ever told me that snapping hip syndrome was a manifestation of short leg syndrome. I truly think that many of my problems are layers that have had to have been slowly peeled away to find out what the problem is that is causing each and every one of them. I thought about the statement that you made and I applied it. Several years back I had a chiropractor tell me that I had short leg syndrome and that I had fallen arches in my right foot and leg. He ordered me an orthotic and a lift to make up the difference. My foot hurt all the time and my right hip hurt all the time and so I stoppd wearing them. A few years later I discovered that I had a bad right ovary. Once I had a doctor that agreed that it was bad and removed it and all that pain went away I was left with my right foot hurting. I found arch supports that made that better but then I had the bursitus and snapping hip syndrome symptoms. No Doctor knew what to do for me and basically tried to give me pain medication to cover it up. I don't want to cover anything up. I want to find the root of the problem and treat it. So, I got to thinking about your statement. (I know it seems like I am going around this same tree, but I will get there) My thought was that because of the pain I was suffering from my ovary, maybe with that all gone I should try the lifts again and see what happens. I am telling you...that one little statement you made took care of my bursitis and my snapping hip syndrome. I am no longer suffering from any of that. I am sleeping well at night. Thank you for your statement. You just don't know how much that has meant to me. You don't know me, you have never met me but you literally saved the quality of my life. It took me a few days after I read your e-mail to put two and two together so to speak but it was worth trying again. Thank you so much.

I'm sorry I missed your call to tell you how pleased I am with the [inferno] wrap. I've only had it six days and there is some improvement already. I sprained a ligament in both knees a month ago doing aerobics, and was beginning to feel I would never heal. The thermal wrap is just wonderful. I will certainly recommend it to anyone I know that needs such treatment.

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.

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!


Use BFST® Inferno Wraps®:

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


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.

The Next Step Is Up To You!

Muscle, hamstring, calf muscle injury get back to the quality of life you deserve.

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!

AidMyBursa stands out in this regard as our goal is to help you heal for the longer-term during your post-operative rehabilitation and beyond.

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

Dear MendMeShop,

As soon as I began using the shoulder product much of the swelling and pain went away. I was impressed because I'm a cynical health practitioner. But it does make total sense to move blood flow to tissue that needs to be repaired. There's really no other way -- except for surgery. And I'm trying to avoid that. I'd say I have another 30-40% of arm use back. Thank you MendMeShop for creating such a simple and effective product.

Dear MendMeShop,

I ordered this wrap after finding out I have a Calcium deposit in my shoulder which has turned to Tendinitis. The Freezie wrap is awesome and instantly takes the pain away. The only thing negative I can say is if you are right at a 40 size chest order the SM/LG (under 40'). I am in the process of exchanging sizes because I ordered the LG/XL (40'-48') and the wrap is bulky and very big. I am right on the cute off for 40' and went bigger when I first ordered and should have ordered the small.

Dear MendMeShop,

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

Dear MendMeShop,

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

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,

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 Knee Wrap and I cannot tell you how much I love this product. I have a misalignment in my back and big toe of my right foot - which caused my left knee to swell. I used the Inferno on my knee and it is now fully healed. Keep these wonderful products coming. You saved me from a possible knee surgery! Thank you Mendmeshop - many times over!

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!!!

Dear MendMeShop,

I sustained a re-injury to the lateral right knee in a hiking incident on a wet path. Initially, I treated with anti-inflammatory medication, ice, elevation and knee brace. This injury was very similar to the previous knee injury, so I thought my knee would heal without seeking orthopedic evaluation. I started using a heating pad with a massage feature to relieve pain and found that the heat helped tremendously, but did not radiate deep enough into my knee. Since I am a Certified Rehabilitation RN, I started researching the Internet looking for a product that would provide radiant heat. I was happy to discover your Inferno Knee Wrap. I have been using it several times a day for several weeks and I am now pain free and functionally able to resume all activities. I still continue using the Inferno Knee Wrap on a daily basis in hopes that I can prevent another knee injury. Thank you for such a wonderful product.

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,

I really never expected such good service! I have a trochanteric bursitis, and have been seriously bothered by it for more than a year. My rheumatologist gave me two steroid injections which helped briefly and then the pain started again, and that pain is almost crippling. Celebrex was recommended and it worked for me except that I have IBS and unfortunately couldn’t continue to take it. Besides it is a systematic drug and who knows what else it may effect. I was in pain and decided to check out the internet and that is where I found you. I was uncertain about the use of electromagnetic therapy, it sounded like it might be in the snake oil category, but fortunately for me I got good confirmation about the legitimacy of the product. I have to say I am so glad that I made the purchase. You are right I felt a difference with the first treatment using the inferno wrap. I have continued to use it about two times a day. I am very impressed with you product. I still have pain, more on same days than others, but it is greatly reduced and I am able to walk without severe pain. I also ordered the freeze wrap but haven’t used it yet. I expect a situation will arise when I may want to. I will recommend you and your product to anyone who may benefit. I am so glad I found you!

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,

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.
