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.

Use Your Body's Natural Healing System
to Treat Your Achilles Tendonitis or Ankle Sprain Injury!


Deep Tissue Regeneration Therapy & Why You Need It


Your body can heal itself! In fact, your body started healing itself the moment you injured your achilles and it's the blood in your body that makes it all happen.

Your blood is the transport mechanism for everything that's good inside you. It carries oxygen, nutrients, water and antibodies.

Bringing proper blood flow to your achilles is essential for healing. Unfortunately, when you injure your achilles, you stop moving and the swelling sets in. That means your vital blood flow can be reduced to a trickle!

Swelling, inflammation and lack of joint movement reduce the flow of blood to your injury. If you are moving your injured muscle around you run a risk of increasing the severity of the injury via muscle or tendon strain. If there has been some healing, you could re-injure the muscle tissue all over again.

Blood Flow - the natural healing process in your body - needs assistance for such injuries because blood flow is greatly restricted when you are immobile. When treating an achilles injury or really any type of soft tissue injury (ie. calf strain, muscles spasms, overextension), an effective therapy will increase blood flow to the injury while the joint is immobile. This increase in blood flow will accelerate the body's own ability to heal itself.

There are a LOT of people out there that do not understand how effective A TShellz Wrap really is. Once initial swelling from the injury had reduced by using a Cold Compress or Ice Pack - this is where the Deep Tissue Regeneration Therapy (Deep Tissue Therapy) effect from an Achilles TShellz Wrap really starts to shine!


The MISSING Piece of the Puzzle....
where SO MANY get it WRONG!

Swelling and inflammation is your body responding to an injury. A lot of pain will probably disappear as the swelling disappears, and many people make the wrong assumption that their achilles injury must be healing as most of the pain is gone. Once you have reduced the swelling with cold, your injury is still there.

This is a critical time! Once the inflammation is gone it may feel like you can return to your regular sports, hobbies, exercise or other activities - but your achilles is in a weakened state, unstable, and still injured. Even the slightest movement or twist in the wrong direction can worsen your injury and increase the swelling yet again. Most "weekend warriors" and amateur athletes will start going back to what they were doing before they injured their achilles, and that is where they get it wrong. Medical professionals know that the injury is still there even if the pain is gone.

Building strong healthy tissue is part of the healing process and needs to be dealt with first! You can help your tissue during this healing process by increasing blood flow with an Achilles T•Shellz Wrap.

With regular use of the TShellz Wrap:

  • Your injury will heal at an accelerated rate (due to enhanced blood circulation) with reduced potential for re-injury*.
  • Soft tissue in the treatment area will have a enhanced range of motion and increased extensibility of collagen tissue. (Chapter 9 of "Therapeutic Heat and Cold", 4th edition. (amazon.com link - Ed. Justus F. Lehmann, M.D., Williams, and Wilkin)

No matter what has caused your achilles injury, it's important to reduce pain, swelling and inflammation as soon as possible. Getting rid of your swelling is the 1st, most important, step in your recovery process. Getting rid of swelling will reduce the amount of tissue damage happening to your lower leg and heel, and open up the blood vessels in your soft tissue so the area can receive more blood flow.

Increasing blood flow is then a priority to bring in all the essential elements needed for natural healing within your own body. You blood flow is the key to speeding up the healing process of your achilles, increasing your range of motion, and ensuring that you won't suffer from this painful condition for years.


Deep Tissue Therapy - Accelerated Healing Power for Your Achilles Injury

If you want to heal quickly, you need to keep your blood moving and that's where Deep Tissue Therapy comes in.

What is Deep Tissue Therapy? It's a substantial increase in the flow of blood to your injured achilles without the need to exercise your already damaged joint.

Have you seen what happens when you add water to a flower wilted from drought? In essence, an injury in achilles is much like a "wilted" flower; your body wants to heal its injury, but needs lots of nutrients to do it. Blood brings new life to your cells by delivering healing nutrients and oxygen that are vital to your tissue. In addition, the blood carries away toxins and cellular waste cleaning the area and healing it faster. Without a good supply of blood, your achilles injury simply won't heal properly.

In order to get maximum blood flow to your achilles, you need to help your body increase blood circulation in the targeted area. Deep Tissue Therapy - through use of a T•Shellz Wrap is the fast, easy and pain-free way to increase blood flow and speed healing. It is the key to dealing with your injured achilles properly.

Both during and after the treatment, your injured tendons, ligaments, bursae and muscles will experience increased blood flow even though your body is at rest.

When you apply the Achilles T•Shellz Wrap you will receive a boost to localized blood flow in the treatment area. During a treatment, and for quite some time after you finish, the treated area will experience increased blood flow even though your body is at rest. It's a soothing sensation and extremely effective.

T•Shellz Wrap = The Perfect DTR Therapy Delivery Tool

With Deep Tissue Therapy your injured achilles is constantly being fed with healing, nutritious, oxygen and energy filled blood. This is exactly what your body needs to heal.



How A T•Shellz Wrap Works

A TShellz Wrap is purely a DTR Therapy workhorse! It's why we made them. They have been specifically designed for the treatment of deep, soft tissue and joint problems such as tendon damage (tendinosis), bursitis, tendonitis and ligament damage.

T•Shellz Wraps contain an Energy Pad which is flexible and can easily conform to fit around your ankle and heel. The Energy Pad emits a uniform wave of healing electromagnetic energy over the entire treatment area. This energy travels down deep inside your muscle, cartilage and tendons/ligaments - into the underlying tissue surrounding your ankle joint; stimulating the blood flow needed to heal your injury. It's the electromagnetic energy that's crucial to the healing process.

Electromagnetic Energy = Increased Blood Flow = More Oxygen, More Nutrients and Less Toxins = Faster Healing

The unit plugs into a wall outlet to get its power. It has a special signal controller which can be set for 3 different power levels of application (3=High, 2=Medium, 1=Low). The cord is long enough that you can sit or lie comfortably and watch TV, read or surf the net while you're using it.


T•Shellz Wraps - The Secret to Accelerated Healing

Electromagnetic energy waves aren't Heat Waves. When they're emitted from the TShellz Wrap they penetrate right through your skin and fat layers until they get to your ligaments, muscles, and tendons. After electromagnetic energy is absorbed by your soft tissue it transforms into Deep Tissue Regeneration Therapy. That's Healing Power - Right at the Source of your Injury!

Increase blood flow with an achilles heat wrap

The TShellz Wraps significantly increase bloodflow in your achilles - period.

Attach the T•Shellz Wrap around your ankle, plug it in and let the Energy Pad do the work!


Why is our DTR Therapy a Plug-In Unit and not Battery Powered?

We field a lot of calls from our customers that want to know why our T•Shellz Wraps don't come with a battery powered option. The simple answer is that our T•Shellz Wraps use a lot of power. We tried looking at batteries, but we found that a high capacity (and high cost) lithium-ion battery would last barely long enough for an adequate treatment time - and then it would need to be recharged. The amount of power that our wrap uses over such a short span of time should really drive home the fact that our T•Shellz Wraps are real, industrial strength treatment devices; currently, for us to provide a battery option for our wraps we would have to reduce the level of electromagnetic energy (ie. treatment power) emitted from this product. The lower the energy output, the less effective the device will be which is why our TShellz Wrap units are plug-in units only.


T•Shellz Wrap = The Best Home
Treatment for a Fast Recovery!

Achilles TShellz Wrap boost healing

When treating an achilles with hot and cold treatments there are a couple of points to consider. Take breaks between ice pack treatments to ensure you do not freeze your skin - this rarely happens but it is important to look out for. As for heat, regular heat waves are only absorbed into the top layer of skin providing little to no effect to healing internally - this is why the ElectroMagnetic energy that is found in the T•Shellz Wrap wrap is far superior - it delivers the heat down deep, where it is needed.

To heal fast we need the right temperature at the right time. Combined therapy using ice packs to minimize swelling (at onset of injury or during flare ups) followed up later with T•Shellz Wraps will give you the greatest chance for a complete recovery.

Use the Achilles TShellz Wrap to
Deal with Scar Tissue & Prevent Re-Injury!


Do you have an achilles tendon or muscle tear, bursitis in your heel, muscle strain, or any other soft tissue injury in the lower leg that's painful, sore and always seems to get re-injured? This could be a sign that you have scar tissue in the injury location. The growth of scar tissue is ultimately what causes stiffening, restricting movement and flexibility.

ankle ligament and tendon tissue tears heal with scar tissue - brittle, inflexible and painful

During the healing process your body will fill in tears in your tendons, muscles or ligaments with dense, brittle tissue called "scar tissue". The human body will use scar tissue as a temporary solution and will try to build the scar tissue as fast as possible to heal a strain or tear in your achilles tissue.

Scar tissue is one of the MAIN reasons why your achilles injury just hasn't healed. Even when the inflammation is gone, scar tissue will still be there to wreak havoc on your ankle movement and range of motion. On-going issues with scar tissue can even result in a tear or full tendon rupture - basically a worsened injury that may require surgery.

Scar tissue will form fast to deal with a strain or tear to one of your tendons, or one of the ligaments in your achille, but working fast doesn't mean that the job's done right. When scar tissue forms it doesn't come together as neatly as regular (healthy) tissue would. Scar tissue fibers will lay down over top of your tear in a cluttered, messy and jumbled up way.

This is how scar tissue works. The scar tissue that forms to fix your tear will be unorganized and won't line up properly with the healthy tissue surrounding the injury site. This scar tissue will also attach to everything in that area, including the surrounding healthy tissue as well. This can result in a long-term fusing together of the soft tissue in your achilles that stiffens your joint reducing your mobility and making your injury even more painful (tenosynovitis)!

Scar tissue is a major problem especially when it comes to chronic, RSI injuries - causing your injury to take months or even YEARS to completely heal!


Time is the only way for your injury to truly heal, but as we have stated earlier, the DTR Therapy will help promote your body's own healing process & reduce your risk of re-injury, helping reduce the growth of new scar tissue.

You can quickly soften scar tissue and prevent further injury to your achilles by increasing blood flow to that area. Treating yourself with an Achilles TShellz Wrap is the easiest and most effective way to accelerate your recovery and deal with stubborn scar tissue.

When applied before activity or work, the Achilles TShellz Wrap will also relax and lengthen your soft tissue to help improve your range of motion and prevent atrophy (wasting away) of the tendons and ligaments in your ankle.

Overall, continued treatment with the Achilles TShellz Wrap will maintain good health in your achilles and significantly reduce your risk of re-injury.

It may seem hard to believe, but regardless of what type of achilles injury you have our Achilles TShellz Wrap will assist you in recovering from your injury faster and thereby reduce the chance of degenerative conditions by maximizing blood flow where it's needed most, preventing further damage, and dealing with scar tissue.



When to use a Cold Compress or Ice Pack:

  • 24 to 72 hours after your initial injury or when you first notice pain and swelling to stop celluar damage, relieve pain, and decrease swelling.
  • After exercise, workouts or activity of any kind to prevent re-injury.
  • Before and after surgery during rehabilitation to control pre and post-surgery pain and swelling.
  • Anytime you feel your achilles or lower leg has been over-extended, over-worked, twisted, strained or sprained causing pain and swelling.
  • Anytime you have swelling, sharp throbbing pain or inflammation.
  • Any other situation where you need to draw the pain and inflammation out of your achilles.

When to use an Achilles TShellz Wrap:

  • When the swelling is down (usually after applying cold to the injury over 24 to 48 hr period).
  • BEFORE getting out of bed in the morning. BEFORE going to bed at night.
  • BEFORE exercise, workouts or activity of any kind to increase elasticity of achilles tendons, ligaments & muscles and decrease chances of re-injury due to overstraining.
  • AFTER surgery (once the skin wound has healed over) to increase post-surgery healing rate and minimize scar tissue growth at the surgery location.
  • Anytime BEFORE you feel you might undertake activity that will put significant strain on the injury area.

New Technology For The Best Therapy Available!

Achilles TShellz Wrap Achilles Tendinitis

We are constantly being asked, is it like a heating pad, is it like infra-red, is it like ultrasound, does it use a magnet? The truth is that the wraps are what we believe to be the most highly effective Deep Tissue Regeneration Therapy products out there, directing electromagnetic energy (EMEnergy) to the treatment site. The application of EMEnergy has a direct effect of 1) boosting blood circulation and 2) releasing heat energy deep within injured soft tissue.

It is a product that has been developed specifically to heal soft tissue in this fashion. IT WORKS unbelievably well! You can be certain of this, as we give full refunds if this is not the case.

While you're treating your achilles with a TShellz Wrap, the increase in blood flow will also whisk away inflammation.

The Energy Pad stimulates all the tissue beneath it evenly. The parts of your body that are healthy will rapidly respond with increased blood flow and there will be little sensation in that area.

As your body continues to heal from treatment to treatment you'll also notice a decrease in pain and the range of motion in your achilles will most likely improve. So not only do you heal, but with every treatment you can feel the difference - you can tell your injury is getting better.



T•Shellz Wraps:

T•Shellz Wraps for Recovery from Achilles Surgery

click to buy achilles tshellz wrap

For Post-Surgery Recovery, cold is recommended by doctors to treat your pain in a natural, non-addictive way and to reduce swelling.

After the incision site has healed, use our TShellz Wraps to achieve a fast healing rate via Deep Tissue Regeneration Therapy. Using the TShellz Wrap as soon as pain & swelling has reduced following your surgery (make sure you get the go-ahead from your physical therapist or surgeon) will minimize scar tissue growth in your achilles that will form as you heal. Treating scar tissue is one of the most important steps following surgery, especially in a joint as scar tissue growth will impact range of motion in the joint.

Leaving post-surgery scar tissue untreated can lead to stiffness, chronic pain, osteoarthritis or other chronic conditions. You're more likely to end up with another injury if you choose not to treat the scar tissue that develops in your achilles. DTR Therapy encourages more oxygen and nutrients to flow to the area to speed healing and improve the strength of the soft tissue in your joint.

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.
