The plantar fascia supports the arch of the foot in carrying the weight of the body.
Approximately 90% of women and 40% of men with plantar fasciitis are overweight.
It frequently affects athletes, people who are on their feet all day and those over 40 years of age.
Among professional athletes, plantar fasciitis is one of the 5 most common foot and ankle injuries.
If left untreated the condition could become chronic and can lead to a host of other issues.
Most sufferers are able to overcome the pain with non-invasive therapy.
Night splints prevent contraction and stretch your plantar fascia while you sleep to help with pain.
Treatment includes avoiding the activity, icing the inflammation, gently stretching and warming the area.
All items purchased (Plantar Inferno and Freezie Wraps) are working out like a miracle. I have been suffering in both feet and the next thing I was looking at was surgery. NO WAY.
I found your web site and pondered over the expense for a couple weeks. I then thought "what the hey, it is cheaper than my co pay portion for any surgery what do I have to lose". So I ordered.
All I have to say is it is working FANTASTIC! Everybody in my household now wants to use my items for their ailments. My room mates Mother came over and noticed how well I was walking and asked me what I was doing with my feet to able to walk again. I shared and now she is thinking about buying the units.

I'm doing well with my Inferno Wraps. I have one for my foot, leg, back, and elbow.
My elbow IS gradually getting better. The foot/ankle/Achilles, leg, and back/hip are helping a lot.
I have a complex soft tissue injury from a fall where my foo[See Full Review]t was asleep and I did not know it ... UNTIL I fell on the floor, having twisted (running on my foot that turned over) my ankle, knee, and hip. I have healed well from the original injury (now 4 years ago) with lots of chiropractic and massage therapy and lots of rehab.
One of my rehabs now is "Ballroom Dancing" with a teacher who understands injuries. I call it "Physio-dance therapy for rehabilitation." I've done this for the last 8 months and have gotten incredibly stronger and improved coordination and balance.
But, 3 weeks ago I "strained" my Achilles/calf/ankle/foot muscles and tendons. I purchased the Inferno Wraps to help expedite my healing, which they HAVE DONE and I've only used them 2 weeks now. I am using them 2 times per day, every day. [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.
I have only used the inferno heat wrap for about 2 weeks for a fairly significant achilles tendon problem that has plagued me for several months. A recent MRI shows partial tears and an irregular shape to part of the tendon.
It seems to me I am ge[See Full Review]tting amazing results already from use of the products I purchased. I am back to playing tennis on a limited basis and realize I need to show restraint but it certainly appears I am on the mend.
I am extremely impressed by the professionalism of your company and the personnel that I have talked to in the ordering process.[Close Review]
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 I[See Full Review]nferno 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.
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 have plantar fasciitis, which began over 20 years ago and has gotten progressively worse. I stand for prolonged periods of time, often 5-8 hrs a day as a fine arts painter.
Spent approximately $1000 for various custom made inserts, tried several t[See Full Review]ypes of expensive shoes supposedly designed for plantar fasciitis, had two sessions of physical therapy at different clinics, sought treatment with a podiatrist who mainly wanted to do an expensive surgical procedure and offered no other treatment than more inserts. None really successful.
After about 2hrs researching plantar fasciitis on Google, I decided to try MendMeShop.
After about two weeks of scrupulous adherence the treatment plan outlined by MendMeShop there was a noticable decrease in pain and I am well pleased with the results so far. If improvement continues at the present rate I should be pain free before years end.[Close Review]

Thank you to Paul and to Darren for your follow-up emails after my product purchase of 3-11-13.
I followed your suggestion of trying the products for 60 days.
I am happy to advise you that I am now able to walk normally again without any pain. [See Full Review] I still use the night splint but now only use the freezie or inferno wraps if my foot feels tired or sore.[Close Review]

I am a 57 year old flat footed female, who has suffered off and on for at least 25 years with a painful plantar/heel.
Slept in the splint the first night, and like a miracle, no pain in the morning! The splint looks unwieldy, but is actually q[See Full Review]uite comfortable. Love the Freezie and the Inferno wraps too. Impressed with the quality materials, and the well thought out construction.
I've been using cushions in my shoes, but they only help a little bit.
I am walking pain free these days and it's almost like a miracle! Thanks again for such a wonderful line of products.[Close Review]

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 kne[See Full Review]e 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.
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[See Full Review], 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! [Close Review]
I also wanted to thank you so much for...
I also wanted to thank you so much for something you casually mentioned. In an email, you mentioned that I might want to look into a test to see if I had one leg shorter than the other because my knee pain was gone. Guess what- you were RIGHT! I wen[See Full Review]t to an orthopaedic specialist who focuses on the foot and ankle. He was very casual and said I was healing fine. I insisted that he send me to someone who could make a brace of some sort. I can see that the same problem (posterior tibial tendonitis) was going to return if we did not get to the root of the problem. I insisted that he at least send me to a person. Fortunately, he sent me to a certified Orthodist. She found a slight discrepency in my right foot. (That's the one with the cast on it.) She is getting new orthodics for me- PLUS I asked about a brace that could keep my feet from over pronating. The Orthopaedic specialist said he could put me in an Arizona brace. I was molded for the brace yesterday.
I truly appreciate your suggestion. No other doctor would have thought to check into it. I am now swimming and have no more pain in the right ankle.
You have been a true blessing to me- in more ways than you will ever know. I know God had you pick up the phone when I called.
Again- THANKS for your kindness and expert advice. Don't forget to send me a link so I can write a review. Now I am on my way to being healthy again.[Close Review]

I am treating plantar fasciitis and I am a professional boxer.
We do a lot of running and jumping rope, which is all very demanding on my feet.
I've tried orthotics and cortisone injections and none gave me the relief i have with the aidmyplantar.[See Full Review]com products! I had searched online for an alternative.
The best part is no co-pay every time I treat myself with these products. You can have relief from pain in your feet and your wallet.
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 whi[See Full Review]ch 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.[Close Review]

I had a diagnosis of a torn ligament in my right foot in July of 2010. After 10 weeks of twice weekly physical therapy, I had limited improvement.
I started using your Ankle Achilles Inferno Wrap. You make a quality product and its continued use[See Full Review] has restored my normal mobility. Your 1-800 telephone staff has provided outstanding support and service. Thank you for this wonderful healing technology.
Thank you. I am still using the (Plantar) inferno wrap and feel it has helped by feet. Thanks for caring.

I've been using the leg inferno wrap to heal my hamstring I recently injured. By no means was it a major injury and it has healed fairly well to this point where I can say I am near 100% recovery.

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 mornin[See Full Review]gs.
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.[Close Review]

I also last year purchased the hot wrap & cold wrap for my planter injury this injury has healed 100%!!![Close Review]
