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.

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.

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]

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 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 have nothing but good to say about the Inferno Wrap. I am continuing to use it daily.
My shoulder is better than I imagined it could be in the amount of time I have been using it. Sometimes I go for days with no pain and when it does come back,[See Full Review] it is no where near the intensity it was before the Inferno Wrap.
Thank you so much for tracking my progress. A very happy customer,
I am a retired Orthopedic Surgical Registered Nurse First Asst and I just want to say this Shoulder Inferno Wrap is wonderful.
I have had adhesive capsulitis in my left shoulder several times.
I am 67yo now and I have Arthritis, Lupus and fi[See Full Review]bromyalgia and I had bilat knee replacements in 2001. It has always taken about 6months to get back use of my arm and to get relief from pain.
I read your information and was expecting it to take at least 6weeks to see an improvement. I have used it this short time since receiving it and I am almost painfree.
Occasionally I start to feel a little ache and I put it back on before it becomes pain I have full range of motion when I could not brush my hair or fasten my bra.
Again, I am so pleased and hope it helps others too.
I would like to encourage others to try the products and see if they get the same remarkable results as I did. I continue to improve with full ROM remaining and only occasional episodes of pain; As soon as I feel any pain, I use it 2-3 days in a row and the pain is gone. This is probably Arthritis as it feels different. [Close Review]

I am out there shooting the best scores of the season. I hurt my wrist, put you wrist Inferno wrap and the next marking period, 2 weeks, I was back to a 6 handicapper vs the 9 handicapper I was when I was hurt.
I lent it to my director of golf that[See Full Review] jammed his wrist. He was in serious pain. I gave him my wrist Inferno and in one day he was back to being a scratch golfer.
It's the best therapy and the only one I WILL use from now on. I also have the shoulder Inferno. I had issues and guess what? No more issues! No surgery that was recommended to me because of you guys, period, like we say in NY. Awesome product thank you.
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]

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]
Things are going well with my healing...
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.

I have been using the Inferno & Freezie Wraps...
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 [See Full Review]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.[Close Review]

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]

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 [See Full Review]other way -- except for surgery. And I'm trying to avoid that.
I'd say I have another 30-40% of arm use back.

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.
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.
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.
