I am getting results by following the protocol MendMeShop laid out for plantar fasciitis. Last week I thought I would have to see a doctor or go to an emergency room as I could not bear weight on my foot it was so painful, first thing in the mornings. This week I'm much improved in the mornings, especially with wearing the splint at night. I am aware I'm not the least cured, but am moving in that direction and am relatively pain free. I'm very hopeful if I stick with what I'm currently doing, I will be able to get my long walks back into my life.

I had a very painful torn plantar fascia where it inserts into the heal. Basically I twisted my foot coming down the steps and then had to downsize from a larger house to a smaller house. I was on my feet everyday after work for a month to move which made the tear worse. Then I got misdiagnosed by my doctor who ordered no testing.. I was in agony until I found the mend me shop website. I ordered the plantar inferno wrap and have used it religiously every morning and evening and noticed a gradual improvement immediately. It also feels nice and toasty on my foot. I did finally go to the podiatrist and was in a CAM Boot for 10 weeks, along with my inferno wrap use. I know that the inferno wrap works because I felt no improvement until I started using it. I highly recommend this product for anyone suffering from plantar fascia pain or injury. I would say I am about 80% healed and continue to use this great product--and my physical therapist approves and has encouraged me to continue to use the product.

Chronic Tendonitis (Tendinitis)

Occurs when a tendon near a joint becomes inflamed, usually because of repetitive overuse. The condition will typically affects patients in the shoulder, elbow, knee, ankle and foot areas, as these are the most active and stressed joints.

Stretching is important for your tendons

Close to 4 million people in the United States seek treatment each year for symptoms of tennis elbow alone! This one of the most common locations for chronic tendonitis and is quite common among athletes. Swinging a golf club or a tennis racquet repetitively can wear on a person's tendons and cause them to become inflamed.

In the past, treatment options for patients with chronic tendonitis have been limited to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, and stretching exercises, but that is changing due to new treatment methods such as ultrasonic therapy and blood flow stimulation therapy, or BFST®. Ultrasound treatment is quickly becoming very popular for treating this problem, as results have been very positive as long as the patient (1) keeps the area inactive throughout the healing process and (2) sticks to the treatment properly until healing has completed.

Ultrasound, effective treatment for your plantar fasciitis

Ultrasound therapy not only kick starts the healing process, more importantly it treats the scar tissue that has been forming on your tendon with ever healing cycle. Ultrasound therapy will naturally "work" the tendon, increasing its flexibility while softening and breaking down scar tissue - which is not something you want on your tendon. This is an important step in your recovery as scar tissue that is left untreated makes a tendon stiff, weak and at risk of further chronic pain. You will have less movement in the tendon, more soreness and a tendon that is prone to continued tendonitis pain. Even with optimum healing there is always less elasticity in a previously injured tendon. The trick is to make sure you heal this the best you can by treating the scar tissue. It is the best way to get rid of your chronic tendon pain.

Success

When treating chronic tendinitis rest the area, and apply cold compression for 10-20 minutes at a time, as needed throughout the day whenever a flare up or re-injury occurs. A Freezie Wrap® is the best option to receive this type of treatment. The adjustable wrap allows you to control the compression to a level that is comfortable for you and the gel packs are chilled in the fridge not the freezer. This eliminates the risk of cryoburn, or 'cold burns', on your skin that can be cause by ice and freezer gel packs. You can also wear the Freezie Wrap® for longer treatments so you can enjoy even more relief from your plantar pain.

Blood flow stimulation therapy, or BFST®, is recommended for use after the acute swelling has improved. The increased blood flow with speed the healing of the tendon while improving the health of any surrounding tissue. An Inferno Wrap® is one of the most helpful tools for healing an injured tendon. Through the absorption of high energy waves, tissues are safely and gently heated - stimulating blood flow within the heal. Your body's natural response to this increased temperature is to try to maintain a condition of homeostasis - a balanced environment or state of equilibrium throughout the body. To do this, your body responds with a rapid increase in blood flow to the area, increasing the supply of nutrients to injured cells and flushing out toxins to promote healing. Our Inferno Wraps® provides effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief with no side effects.

A cold compression Freezie Wrap® will reduce the initial inflammation and swelling. Therapeutic ultrasound will treat your scar tissue. The Inferno Wrap® circulates blood through the area to speed the healing process. These 3 therapies will treat tendinitis and improve the health of your tendon.

Patients with chronic tendonitis are instructed to avoid activities that aggravate the condition, as the tendon will not heal properly if it is constantly stressed through overuse. Occasionally, physicians performed surgery on patients or give them injections of corticosteroids, but this is invasive and can weaken the tendon tissue after repeated injections.
