More Facts About Achilles Tendonitis:

The Achilles tendon does not have a rich blood supply. Blood supply is weakest at a point between 2 and 6 cm above its insertion into the calcaneus (heel bone).


Ignoring pain in the Achilles tendon (ie. "running through the pain") is the biggest cause of chronic Achilles tendonitis.


For cyclists, initial Achilles tendon stress is often caused by having a low saddle height. This low saddle height can result in excessive dorsiflexion of the foot, which stresses the Achilles tendon.


The Achilles tendon is the connection between the heel and the most powerful muscle group in the body.


Tennis and soccer players over 40 are the most frequent sufferers of tennis leg (calf muscle strain).


Sudden increases in running and or active sprinting sports can cause Achilles tendonitis.


Excessive running up and down hills can aggravate the Achilles tendon.


Stiff shoe soles at the ball of the foot will increase Achilles tendon strain.


Excessive heel shock absorption can overstretch the Achilles tendon.


Tight hamstrings and/or tight calf muscles create excess strain on the Achilles tendon.


For triatheletes, the most common cause of injuries to the Achilles tendon is overpronation, inflexibility, or lack of strength.


Immobility, due to an Achilles injury, may result in a contracted Achilles tendon and an increased amount of scar tissue.

Dear MendMeShop,

I have to admit, I fully expected to be returning my order. (inferno wrap, freezie wrap) I told my wife "this is a lot of money and if doesn't work I'm sending it back", "I've got 60 days". Well after about 9 days of (2) treatments per day my severe case of Lateral Epicondylitis (tennis elbow) is almost pain free. I tried wearing the over the counter tendon support brace with absolutely no results. My elbow pain was so bad I couldn't sleep at night and just knew I was going to have to see a doctor. Then I found your website. I was very impressed with the quality of your wraps, very thick and made form high quality materials. I guess the old adage "you get what you pay for" speaks volumes here. I'm completely sold on your products and won't be returning anything!!! Thank you for helping heal my tennis elbow and I've already told many of my friends about your web site. 100% satisfied Cameron Caldwell from Meriden, KS.

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 optio

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!!

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.

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.

Thank you MendMeShop for creating such a simple and effective product.

I have one of your other products which I use

Thank you for your wonderful products.

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 th

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 Mend Me Shop,
Dear Mend Me Shop,

I was suffering from the beginning stage of plantar fasciitis and the freezie ice compression and the inferno wrap were a great help to me!

The pain and inflammation is gone and if it creeps back up, I use the products for about

I have already recommended it to family members that also have plantar fasciitis.

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 am a very active individual. If I am not running or lifting weights you can usually find me doing various outdoor and home improvement projects.

That is why when I recently started experiencing pain in my shoulder, upper arm and forearm I conclud
[See Full Review]ed that I had aggravated an old rotator cuff injury. Initially I ignored the discomfort, thinking that that would make it magically disappear but, to my disappointment the pain only continued to get worse.

After a couple of months of I pain, I decided to do something for myself. I tried stretching exercises, massage, the heating pad and ibprofen but nothing seemed to be helping.

That's when I went online and found the Mend Me Shop and the inferno wrap for the shoulder seemed like a good way to wrap the heat around the immediate area that needed treating.

When I picked up the package from the post office I was anxious to get started. I was so pleased that after only three days of using the products, I was feeling relief. It's only been a little over a week since I started treatments and I can say that I can once again imagine living without the that constant pain.

Thanks so much for the relief !!!

Achilles Tendon Facts

There are over 250,000 achilles tendon injuries each year in the US.


Achilles tendon ruptures are common in people between the ages of 30 and 50.


In runners, too rapid an increase in mileage, hill training without proper strengthening, and recent or inadequate changes to running gear can cause injuries to the Achilles tendon.


Achilles tendonitis accounts for an estimated 11% of running injuries.


3-5% of athletes are forced to leave their sports career due to Achilles tendon overuse injuries that go untreated.


Medications mask the pain but do very little in the healing of Achilles tendonitis. Anti-inflammatories, cortisone injections, and pain killers can cause Achilles tendonitis to worsen.


A fully ruptured tendon REQUIRES surgery. It will not heal on its own.


Achilles tendonitis and Achilles tendinitis are the same thing.


Continually using your Achilles tendon while it is injured will lead to a more serious and/or chronic injury.
