Contintually using your elbow while it is injured will cause further damage and result in a slower recovery.
Left untreated, elbow tendonitis injuries can be extremely debilitating and lead to life long complications.
Incomplete healing and re-injury can lead to a build up of scar tissue in the elbow causing further injury. BFST is a very effective treatment to aid in scar tissue breakdown of epicondylitis.
To heal as fast as possible:
Use a cold compression wrap to reduce pain, swelling.
Use BFST treatments to accelerate the body's natural healing.
Avoid pain killers
Once swelling is reduced and healing has begun, start stretching the injured joint after warming up with a BFST wrap.(stretching=good, straining=bad)
Contintually using your elbow while it is injured will cause further damage and result in a slower recovery.
Tennis Elbow is the most common overuse injury for the elbow joint.

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.

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 te[See Full Review]lephone, 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.
Hello, I'm reporting into you that the shoulder wrap is working so good. Most of my pain is gone now.
I have good movement of the arm. Can raise it up over head now and around to the back. Before I started the treatments I was not able to do these t[See Full Review]hings.
I am a believer of your product and I will continue to use it.
I went to my Doctor today for my yearly physical and I told her about me ordering this wrap, as I did not want to go through another surgery on the rotator-cuff. I just got done doing my overhead pulley exercises on my arms and then I put on the wrap and it felt so good. I still am being very careful as to not over use the arm. I was able to run my vacuum today with the right arm and did great.
Ok, just thought you would like to hear my progress and I am very happy with the results so far[Close Review]

As a professional athlete, my body takes a lot of abuse during training. Boxing is very strenuous on the arms and shoulders and I have had a rotator cuff injury for the past two years. The shoulders don't get a lot of blood flow, so injuries don't he[See Full Review]al properly on their own. The injury had gotten so bad, I thought I might have to retire from the ring. Then I started using the Inferno Wrap and the Freezie Wrap every day.
I use the Inferno Wrap before my workouts to relax and loosen up the muscles in my shoulder and increase the circulation. After a hard training session (sometimes up to 3 hours), I use the Freezie Wrap to deal with any remaining inflammation. My shoulder has felt better in the past two months than it has in the past two years! I highly recommend both of these products to anyone with a chronic injury who is saddled with daily pain.

I just wanted to reply by saying that I love your products.
I have purchased 2 wraps from you (Wrist Inferno and Ankle/Achilles Inferno) and they have worked for me better than I ever thought they would.
I believe I completely healed my heel an[See Full Review]d I am still receiving treatments for my carpal tunnel. But your products are really wonderful.
I am very pleased, especially with the inferno wrap. At first when I received it, I was wondering if it was going to really help, more than my heating pad.
I can tell you today, my wrist has gotten so much better!
I use the inferno wrap every even[See Full Review]ing in my down time before heading to bed, on the weekend did use it much more and believe that did help. I had severely stretched/pulled the tendons in my wrist, became very painful, going about the routines of life.
I am so very happy with the purchase and am a big fan of the Mendmeshop, thanks for helping me to get my life back on the road to being somewhat normal!
I do like the freezie wrap too, being able to put it on and leave it there but still move around.
I will surely recommend your site to anyone I know in the future that injures themselves and wants to be on the road to recovery as soon as possible.[Close Review]

In fact, I don't know what we would do without them, as all the injuries are improvin[See Full Review]g gradually.
Thank you for these wonderful products, and thank you, too, for the personal attention to your customers. A rarity, in today's world![Close Review]

I just wanted to let you know how happy I have been with my wrist wrap.
I broke my leg, the tibia and fibula January 10, 2013. I had a lot of soft tissue damage to my foot since I fell off a pier and landed on gravel with my foot. My tendons ar[See Full Review]e so tight and at night they wake me up a lot, had a metatarsal lump on the bottom of my foot which gave me issues.
I was going to order the foot pad but the lady advised me to get the wrist wrap since the top of my foot was involved and she said I could probably wrap it around different places and she was so right. I am much better. I have been using it about a month now and I can tell you that I am much better. The energy from the wrap helps my tendons to stretch out and although I am not 100%, I have gone from 50% to 75% in this one month.
I only wish I had found you earlier in my ordeal and I would probably be 100% by now.
I would recommend your product to anyone who is having tendon issues after an injury. Thank you so much[Close Review]
I am a 44 year-old woman in good health. I...
I am a 44 year-old woman in good health. I eat a fresh diet and take high-quality supplements, including MSM, glucosamine, Zyflamend, and all the usual joint-recomended supplements.
I injured both knees two years ago while kneeling to tile my fami[See Full Review]ly room and entry. Subsequently, a simple twisting squat ripped my left meniscus with a huge bucket tear that required surgery to trim so it wouldn't keep catching and re-tearing. I am not one to undergo surgery unless it is unavoidable, and even after a "simple" scope operation, it took me a full year to get full extension back on that knee, and I doubt I will ever be able to squat again.
I run a cleaning business. A couple of months ago an employee had forgotten to return equipment to my van, and I had to mop some hardwood flooring for a client on my hands and knees. That simple ten-minute job put me back out of commission. The kneeling pre-injured the area, and when I stepped back onto my good leg two days later, I felt that familiar burn of a fresh meniscus tear. I was heartsick, dreading another surgery and the attendant expense, pain, and down time. I know from my previous experience that cartilage is hard to heal because of the poor blood supply, especially to the center. I knew it was just a matter of time before I tore it further. (My dad had multiple knee scopes before finally getting a replacement, but I was not going down that path if I could help it!)
I got online and researched alternatives that would get me back on my feet. Delighted to discover Mend Me Shop and their professional athletic healing devices, I ordered the Inferno Wrap and Ice Wrap. $400 would be a pittance relative to the $13,000 it costs to repair a torn meniscus (and that doesn't include rehab and lost income). During the week it took the package to arrive, I stayed off my feet as much as possible and iced the injured knee several times a day. My big hope was simply to avoid tearing the cartilage further before the stuff came. (With my surgery knee, I had re-torn it repeatedly before surgery.)
The minute that I put that Inferno wrap around my bad knee, I was in love! The penetrating warmth felt amazing. I kept it by my desk and strapped it on when I would sit and work at the computer. And I kept icing the knee. Within a couple weeks I was walking evenly on both legs, if gingerly lest I inadvertently twist or bounce. But I was definitely healing. I didn't miss any work after the first week, though I moved more slowly than usual and occasionally felt that piercing reminder of the tear. I had to lie down and elevate my knee every two hours to get through the day, but it was slowly healing. Four weeks later I was feeling so good, and the day was so sunny, that I went skipping off the front porch and was reminded I have a torn meniscus!
And so it goes to this day, some six weeks later: the injury is there, but it is gradually improving. The more I use the therapy devices, the faster it improves. The more I get lazy and feel perfect and neglect them, the more I slow down. But I work a full schedule without breaks and only occasionally am reminded of the injury. By God's grace and with many thanks to Mend Me Shop, I have avoided surgery!
I am elated with the Shoulder Inferno and Freezie Wraps. I purchased. My shoulder is regaining strength, albeit slowly.
Until I found your products I was in tremendous throbbing pain from a rotator cuff injury. For three months I used Chiropract[See Full Review]ors and exercise bands to no avail.
The terrible throbbing has subsided and I am once again able to throw the ball with my two German Pointers!
If I over do activity, the freeze wrap helps to calm the shoulder down. An hour after that I do the Inferno Wrap. [Close Review]

I thank the One Above for having your website befall on me.
My Inferno Wrap is absolutely perfectly designed, and absolutely perfectly works as advertised. My first-20 minute treatment tells it all: My Inferno Wrap, from the get-go, provided complet[See Full Review]e relief, and unquestionable will keep doing the same on the other parts of my injured body.
My Inferno Wrap: Just Perfect. Period.
Also, thank you for your patience, as I unloaded my many questions on you.
Over the past eight months I have been suffering from shoulder and arm pain. I just kept thinking that the pain would go away on its own. When I reached the point where I was unable to raise my arm over my head without assistance and forget about [See Full Review]putting my arm behind my back.
I decided that a trip to the doctor was due. She ruled out that I had an injury to the Rotator Cuff itself and determined that I had a soft tissue injury. Due to repetitive movement and heavy lifting.
She suggested that I try physical therapy. With my work schedule and family obligations I knew that was going to be very difficult and I wanted something that I could fit into my schedule. So I began doing research on the internet for alternative treatments and exercises.
That's when I found your product on the internet. I was somewhat skeptical as to rather it would perform as stated, but decided to give it a try. It was stated that it could take up to three weeks to feel results.
BUT I am here to say that for myself it has done better. I have been using the Freezie Wrap for a week and have already felt some improvement. I can now raise my arm to just about shoulder height unassisted, and can now almost get my finger tips back behind my back.
I make a point of using Freeze Wrap as soon as I get home from work to relieve the stress to my muscles from work and to keep the inflammation down. Now that I have gotten some of the inflammation gone I intend to incorporate the Inferno Wrap treatment to my regiment to just before going bed to aid the healing process and aid in a better night's sleep.

I have been a hairdresser and esthetician for over 20 years now. I can not tell you how happy I am to have found your products. The Inferno Wrap for my wrist is a MIRACLE to me. I have suffered intense pain for the past 3 years due to overuse of my h[See Full Review]ands. I had been having acupuncture for the past 3 years. It helped for a while but the pain always returned. I was told I would need surgery and physical therapy.
After only a week using the inferno wrap I have no pain. I have 3 other hairdressers in my salon hooked on your products too. One for shoulder and back pain. We are all so happy now. I will tell everyone I know about MendMeShop.
This Steve's wife, Sam, writing to thank you for your follow-up and for making these great products available.
I had been suffering from tendinitis for MONTHS. The pain had gotten so bad, I could not find any comfortable position for my arm which w[See Full Review]ould throb and ache constantly. If I moved it wrong, I'd get a searing, stabbing pain that was truly excruciating. I was taking 8 ibuprofins a day and still not getting relief.
My husband was quite concerned and researched my condition on line. That's when he found your website.
He ordered the inferno wrap. I've been using it for just over a week now and my arm is almost back to normal. It is miraculous. That pain is GONE. If I move wrong, there is still some soreness, but my arm hasn't felt this good in months!
I intend to go online and write a review to encourage others to give your products a try. For less than the cost of one visit to the doctor (actually, I DID go to my doctor who just prescribed a strong pain killer...) I got a long-term solution to my problem. Thank you thank you thank you!
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 "mai[See Full Review]n" 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! [Close Review]

I recently went to a Rheumatologist and was diagnosed with DeQuervains tenosynovitis. I was tested and treated with a cortizone shot, pain medication and was told to continue using the brace I bought previous to the visit. The shot may have lasted al[See Full Review]l of 4 hours. I went online to research the condition and treatment. I ordered the Wrist Inferno Wrap immediately after reading the reviews and what it could do for the pain I was experiencing.
To my surprise this wrap starting working within a couple of days. I could not believe it! Although this treatment indicates it would take atleast 4 to 6 weeks, I am experiencing relief already. The nodule beneath my thumb where I was experiencing the spasms has disappeared. THIS PRODUCT really works.
I am so greatful to you and endorse this product 100%. I am hoping to be completely healed with continued use soon. Thank you so much for creating a product that TRULY WORKS. I use as recommended 3 times a day including in the office. I rate this product as EXCELLENT![Close Review]

MendMe products are the Cadillac of at-home treatment options.
They are robustly constructed to provide superior heat or cold contact to the injured area and the fit is incredibly precise and adaptable.
My husband and I use them repeatedly as t[See Full Review]ypical ageing athletes with lots of old injuries. I have loaned them to friends on my paddle tennis team and everyone raves.
Yes, they cost a bit more but save untold thousands in visits to chiropractors, physical therapists and doctors.
Things are going well with my healing sessions. I had it three times daily with each session lasting 20 minutes maximum for two weeks. I noticed reduction of pain in my third day using the Inferno Wrap. In my Second week I reduced the sessions to jus[See Full Review]t one (20 Minute) per day. The pain is almost gone except when I make a wrong and abrupt move on or of my right (problematic) shoulder.
Hopefully, I do not have to use the Freeze Wrap this summer when I do most of my heavy yard work, but I am assured that there is this cold treatment if in case I hurt my shoulder again.
I now have decided not to have an MRI on my shoulder and undergo more expensive treatments or therapy from my specialist ortho doctor . I think his diagnosis of "Frozen shoulder" or possible rotator cup tear are correct. I will be watching my progress and if condition gets worse, I will call him again for appointment.
But for the mean time, I am satisfied with my Inferno Wrap treatment on myself. I am glad to have save time and money at least for now.
Thanks again for your wonderful products and support.
Warm Regards to your Team.

It's refreshing to hear your sincere concern for the health benefit of your products to your customers.
I'm a repeat customer. I purchased my first elbow inferno wrap about five years ago. I use it all the time, since I play tennis about 4 to 5 [See Full Review]times a week. I consider the money well spent for five years of playing lots of tennis.
I also have a knee inferno wrap, which I use less often because once my knees healed they hurt only occasionally. Because the pad in the knee wrap is bigger, I can also use it on pain in my lower back, which I sometimes get from pulled muscles.
For years I've been recommending your products to tennis playing friends who complain about painful joints, and I'm always surprised how few actually want to invest the money into healing themselves. They'd rather use neoprene sleeves, braces or compression devices, which don't work very well and have no healing effect. I guess they just think it's normal to suffer and stop playing at regular intervals.
I really appreciate y'all emailing and responding. I'm in business myself so I know the importance of customer service. Your company has done a superb job and it's really appreciated. I know it takes a lot of time but it's very well worth the time y[See Full Review]ou spend.[Close Review]
Overuse injuries of the elbow are commonly associated with athletes however, overuse injuries are most common in occupational areas.
Tennis Elbow is a common name used for an acute form of tendonitis in the tendon fibers that attach the forearm muscles to the elbow.
Symptoms of epicondylitis include pain, swelling, bruising and tenderness. Other symptoms may also include hand numbness or hand weakness.
The most effective way to get healing nutrients and oxygen back into your elbow is via the use of Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy.
Cell Phone Elbow (a.k.a Cupital Tunnel Syndrome) can develop from excessive cell phone use where the ulna nerve is stretched for a long period of time.
This restricts the blood flow to the elbow and can cause the nerves to become weakened and scarred. If you feel pain or numbness in the hand (in particular the pinky and ring fingers) whilst using a cell phone, change hands or use a bluetooth.
Elbow injuries can be secondary to an injury elsewhere in the body. The elbow injury may be caused by the body compensating for an injury to the neck, shoulder or wrist.
