Bursitis Injury Facts Part 2:

Normally, bursa are flat and contain very little fluid. An injured bursa however, is swollen with fluid and not so flat anymore.


The most common bursitis injuries are:
Prepatellar Bursitis (housemaid's knee),
Superficial Infrapatellar Bursitis (clergyman's knee),
Trochanteric Bursitis (hip),
Olecranon Bursitis (student's elbow) and
Subacromial Bursitis (shoulder bursitis).


Deep Bursae separate bare areas of bone from overlapping muscles.
Superficial Bursae separate bare areas of bone from skin or tendons.


Deep Bursae develop in the womb.

Superficial Bursae develop within months to several years after birth.


Household names for various bursitis injuries include: Popeye's Elbow, Miner's Elbow, Weaver's Elbow, Housemaid's Knee, Hod-Carrier's Shoulders, Dustman's Shoulders, Student's Elbow, and Clergyman's Knee

Bursitis Injury Facts Part 3:


On occasion, bacteria can invade a bursa and cause an infection. An infected bursa is known as septic bursitis and can be life-threatening if left untreated. So make sure you see a physician!


Septic bursitis is most common in knee joints and elbow joints as the bursae in these locations are close to the skin and most susceptible to bacterial invasion.


It is not uncommon for bursitis to be misdiagnosed as arthritis.


Bursitis is best avoided by staying in shape, taking frequent breaks from repetitive or laborious tasks and cushioning joints if on them for long periods (ie. kneepads for gardening).


A Bursa can swell to a surprisingly large size. In cases of heavy swelling, your physician may choose to drain fluid from the swollen bursa. If a lump is present in chronic bursitis cases, excision may be required.


Clergyman's Knee comes from a more upright posture when kneeling in comparison to Housemaid's Knee. Patients suffering from gout or syphilis can be at higher risk of contracting Clergyman's Knee.

Before you decide on a treatment path, an understanding of the three major stages of the healing process is critical. With the right knowledge and the right treatment options, you can accelerate your recovery without the fear of re-injury or setbacks (which unfortunately, happens a LOT with bursa injuries - we will explain why further down the page).



The 3 Stages of Healing Bursitis

Regardless of what bursitis you may be suffering from (knee, hip, shoulder, elbow, ankle), the treatment stages are the same. The location of the treatment is wherever the inflamed bursa may be.

Step 1: Reduce The Initial Inflammation

knee tendonitis pain areas

Inflammation is the body's natural response to a soft tissue injury and is a normal part of the healing process, helping to reduce tissue infection in the early stages of injury. Swelling, pain, heat sensation, redness, and loss of function are the main symptoms experienced and it is your body's way of telling you there is something wrong.

The combination of rest, topical pain relief cream and the use of a Cold Compress or Ice Pack (when there is swelling) is the gold standard in medicine for minimizing tissue damage and reducing inflammation after injury or activity. It serves as a critical starting point before continuing into the next phase of the healing process.

Step 2: Enhance Blood Flow to the Injured Bursa and
Surrounding Tendons, Muscles & Ligaments

Bursae, tendons, and ligaments are considered soft tissue although they are also very dense. As a result, they naturally receive very little blood flow and this is precisely why injuries to these tissues take so long to heal. The challenge is - how do you effectively increase blood flow to tissues in the area?

  • Rigorous exercise is out of the question as it will lead to further injury.
  • Visits to the clinic are helpful, but that only happens a few times a week.
bursitis recovery via stimulation of blood flow

It is through the blood the body carries the oxygen, nutrients and water that injured tissues rely on for recovery.. It is well known that increased blood flow helps your body accelerate the healing process.

When you have a bursa injury, there is reduced blood flow to the injury site. Inflammation and reduced movement (lack of activity or on-going immobility) will reduce the flow of blood - and if you think about it, this makes sense. Moving the joint(s) where there is bursitis is very painful, so it is very common for bursitis sufferers to have significantly reduced mobility; over time, this leads to atrophy - a shortening of muscles, tendons and ligaments of the joint. As your bursa heals, you run a high risk of straining your muscles and tendons as they have become shortened due to lack of use - leading to more soft tissue injures and possibly putting you into a chronic soft tissue injury cycle.

As such, an optimal treatment for such injuries would be one that boosts localized blood flow in the area, which is why we reommend the T•Shellz Wrap®.


Step 3: Recognize That Healing is a Process

With dedication, the right tools, and the right information - you will achieve your goal of a sustainable recovery. A combination approach of cold applications, T•Shellz Wrap® treatments, and functional movements will make it happen much more quickly.

Hip Bursa Locations

In our experience, soft tissue repair rates via conservative home treatment methods using a dedicated, comprehensive approach have surprised many of our clients, but will differ from person to person. In nearly all cases, however, it is very important to stop whatever you were doing that created the injury in the first place (ie. running).

What is a Bursa?

Most of you are reading this because you suspect you have a bursa injury, or perhaps you have already received a confirmed diagnosis. Either way, you are most likely interested in learning; what are the steps I need to take to properly heal bursitis?

We receive questions like this on a daily basis. The approach we take is based on years of experience and based on sound, scientific principles. We discuss these approaches in-depth further down the page and throughout the rest of the website. Before getting into that however, it is important to understand the characteristics of the bursa and the role it plays within the body.

it-band bursitis

A bursa is a closed, fluid-filled sac that functions as a cushion and provides a gliding surface to reduce friction between tissues of the body around joints. Essentially, a bursa provides a slick surface so that tendons and ligaments can "slide" across a bony prominence so they won't catch or rub against bone.

The major bursae (bursae is plural for bursa) are located adjacent to tendons near large joints, such as in the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees, though there are hundreds of them throughout the body. Bursae will typically develop as the body needs them, and it is not uncommon for some people to have bursae in an area where others do not. Once a bursa becomes inflamed, the condition is known as bursitis; if the bursa becomes infected, it is known as "septic bursitis". Septic bursitis is not something to take lightly, as an infected bursa can quickly spread infection throughout the body and become life-threatening.


So I Think I Have Bursitis - What Should I Do?

If you suspect you may have bursitis, go consult your physician. Only your physician can truly diagnose bursitis, and from this, determine a course of proper treatment.

After seeking medical advice, your physician may opt to aspirate the bursa, remove the bursa (known as a bursectomy), do a steroid injection, or recommend conservative treatment options.


How Long to Recover from Bursitis?

If you have pain and/or swelling within or around a joint, you may have bursitis. See your physician if symptoms do not go away within a few weeks. It can take several months to get rid of bursitis, though conservative treatments and/or medical treatment can speed up the process. It is important to deal with bursitis quickly - the longer bursitis continues, the greater the chance this injury will cause secondary injuries such as tendinitis or muscle strain due to decreased Range of Motion that will eventually occur.

Pre/Post-Surgery Recovery

If a bursectomy is undertaken, you will find we have effective solutions for post-surgery recovery. Reduction of inflammation reduces pain, enhances range of motion and minimizes scar tissue growth. You can read more about effective options for pre/post bursitis surgery here.


Why is Fast Healing Important for Bursitis?

Once a bursa becomes irritated and inflamed, recovery time is lengthy, requiring a reduction in activity for a long period of time to allow the bursa to heal. This is why many bursitis sufferers start having muscle atrophy and tendonitis problems near the injured bursa. An inflamed bursa will often spread into nearby soft tissue, and your immobile joint will begin to lose more flexibility as unused muscles shorten over time (atrophy). This is why it is important to heal your bursitis as quickly as possible - you need to avoid the vicious cycle of tendonitis and decreased Range of Motion that will occur with chronic (long term) bursitis.


The Good News: the Body uses Blood to Repair Itself

iliopsoas bursitis pain

Before we go further, it is important to understand that your body is capable of healing itself. This is why your physician will always try to opt for the conservative treatment first - usually, it works although it takes time to heal. Your blood flow carries oxygen and much needed nutrients to injured tissue in the body while also flushing away toxins and waste at the same time. When you have a bursitis injury, however, there is not much blood flow in the bursa, and since you are not moving the area much, the blood flow to the area is further minimized. Also, joint movement where the bursitis is can increase the severity of the injury. If there has been some healing, you could re-injure yourself if your joint is not immobile. Blood Flow (the natural healing process in your body) needs assistance for such injuries because blood flow is greatly restricted when you are immobile. For bursitis, an effective treatment will increase blood flow to the injured area while the joint is immobile. The increased blood flow will accelerate the body's own ability to heal itself.


Re-injury of the Bursa Must be Avoided

It goes without saying that anyone suffering from bursitis should want to minimize their chance of worsening the injury, or re-injuring the bursa once it has started to get better. Obviously, a worsening injury will delay the healing process, but what's worse is that every re-injury and additional healing cycle increases the amount of time that your joint is immobilized. Time is not kind to an immobilized joint - you lose strength in the joint but worse than that, you lose the range of motion in your joint via atrophy (your flexible tendons, muscles and ligaments slowly shrink, decreasing joint elasticity). The more time that goes by with an immobile joint, the more likely you will wind up with a chronic joint problem (long term injury such as tendonitis or persistent bursitis pain). Basically it means that your joint will not perform as well as it once did and it becomes more prone to injury again later on.

If you have an inflamed bursa in one of your joints, it's very important to heal it quickly and completely. Minimizing the healing time of your bursitis should be an obvious goal, as bursitis typically limits your ability to go about your daily routine. As stated here (MedicineNet.com), if your long-term (chronic) bursitis is left untreated, calcium deposits can form within the bursae. These calcium deposits can lead to permanent stiffness in the affected joint.

2: Visits to Physio (PT) Help - We Always Recommend It - But It Can Be Costly And Inconvenient

While the benefits of PT are very real and we believe it to be integral for recovery from soft tissue injuries, the problem is that people only attend sessions a few times a week.

To truly provide a long term solution to combat bursitis induced soft tissue damage, you need to be receiving multiple treatments on a daily basis and get rid of your bursitis asap. Not just any type of treatments, but ones that focus on generation of new healthy tissue - along with proper synthesis of that tissue as well.

Treatments for soft tissue injuries are cumulative in nature...meaning the more the treatments are administered, the faster the benefits can be experienced.

Who these days has time to visit a clinic on a daily basis? Not only is your time limited, but the cost of daily PT sessions is out of reach for most people.

Therefore, the focus needs to be on adding treatment options that can be done frequently, from the comfort of your own home (and even the workplace if the opportunity presents itself). We will discuss these options later on down the page.

3: People Tend To Focus Too Much On Cold Treatments

This is the final reason for extended bursitis and soft tissue injuries. We see it all the time - people for weeks and even months only focus on using cold.

Doing too much cold will actually inhibit the recovery because you are starving the injured tissues of the blood flow they need to repair and rebuild the collagen. Cold restricts the vessels - reducing the blood flow to the tissues that truly need it most.

Cold treatments should be more focused on in the earliest stages of an injury with much less focus in the mid and latter stages.

The truth is, there will always some mild inflammation associated with tissue injuries. However, some of that inflammation will remain UNTIL you begin to focus on healing the soft tissue (muscle). Once this begins to heal, the inflammation will then subside more permanently - not just temporarily like with cold treatments.

As an analogy, think of a home with a leaky roof. You can place a bucket on the floor of the attic whenever it rains - and this will help temporarily, but does it truly address the situation? Obviously the answer is no. Not until you focus on repairing the structural issues with the roof - will the problem be actually solved.

The same concept applies to injured soft tissue - you need to focus on reinforcing growth of flexible, strong tissue. To do this, you need more blood flow reaching them, not less.

4: Injections Can Cause Harm If You Are Not Careful

This can be VERY helpful in alleviating pain and when it comes to bursitis, pain relief alone can make a huge difference. However, some people get a false sense that their injury is healed because they are not experiencing the pain they once did. Some individuals even engage in activities they should not be doing because they "no longer feel pain". Once the effects wear off, people often find their bursitis persists . This of course, results in a prolonged recovery. Be very careful about your activity after the injection because there is little, if any, pain feedback to tell you that you're overdoing it.

Merely masking the pain can be very helpful temporarily, but it is not a solution; it is just a temporary fix.


Bursitis Injuries - They Certainly Are Life Changing Aren't They...

If you've been living with the agony of bursitis for some time now, it's almost a sure thing that you're feeling discouraged, tired, and worn-out. Some bursitis sufferers we have spoken with have been confined to a wheelchair - just due to the pain of their bursitis! Seemingly simple chores are now impossible - like getting in and out of a car, cooking a meal, or just standing and walking for significant periods of time. The constant pain has no doubt interrupted your sleep, just adding to the long-term misery that this condition can bring on.

Inflamed bursae cause extreme pain and reduce your ability to move. It can be very challenging to keep a positive attitude and outlook when suffering from the pain and immobility that bursitis can bring.

If you choose not to deal with your bursitis, you may end up in a long term downward spiral. What ends up happening is that bursitis will often freeze you up over a long period, cause overcompensation injuries and decrease the range of motion in your affected joint (which can by itself cause secondary soft tissue injuries). This will definitely set back your recovery and in some cases, it can trigger a long term problem that never goes away (reduced joint mobility, tendonosis, permanent limp). In the case of one of our previous clients, he was confined to a wheelchair for over 2 years specifically due to a chronic bursitis problem - believe me in saying this - it is important to not ignore bursitis.


Yes, Bursitis Is A Painful, Persistent Injury - AND It Can Also Lead to Other Conditions and Injuries

Every time we use our joint where there is painful bursitis, tendons and muscle tissue move; when they disturb an inflamed bursa, every movement hurts. With injured tissue, pain happens - sometimes a LOT of pain, so we try not to move it. So, when doing something we need to use our affected joint for (climbing stairs, getting up from the sofa, moving a car wheel, walking to the mailbox), we start to use the non-affected joints more. In the case of shoulder bursitis, we use our other shoulder instead even though it is inconvenient. In cases of hip bursitis, you may find you are using your knees and back more - and so forth.

Subacromial Bursitis Pain PatternTrochanteric Bursitis Pain Pattern

A couple days later (after purposefully avoiding movement of affected joint), the pain has gone down (as well as the swelling) and this is where the trouble begins! The pain disappeared with the swelling but we still aren't fully healed! Not knowing this, we start using our joint again and then the injury swells up again like it did before - all because the injury wasn't fully healed in the first place.

Eventually, we use the other leg/shoulder/arm more and more, over a lengthy period of time. This is why the other joints start to hurt - they are being overused and taking the load that your affected joint once did. Soon, aches and pain can become commonplace elsewhere in the body - all as a result of the original bursitis injury and the body's instinctive nature to "protect" the original injury - all because the injury wasn't fully healed in the first place!

We continually re-injure ourselves through our daily activities and now we are dealing with long term chronic injuries due to atrophy and overcompensation.

overcompensation-injury-prevention-and-rehabilitation

Muscle imbalances result, placing tension on bone and softer tissues - leading to a misalignment within the body. The extra stress on the opposite side of the body will also result in weakness and fatigue of soft tissue - increasing the chances they can eventually be injured or gradually degenerate. This is a textbook example of how you get an overcompensation injury. In some cases, PTs warn that overcompensation can be very dangerous as it will affect gait or alignment on a permanent basis.

An injury to one bursa can easily lead to straining in other areas, making an overall recovery hard to initiate. For example, a serious case of bursitis in the right knee can often lead to over-straining of the left knee and even hip. Most commonly, the injury occurs on the dominant side, so the risk of straining the other (weaker) side increases. The longer the injury (and corresponding pain) persists, the greater the chance that you will sustain more strain from overcompensation, eventually leading to issues in those areas as well. To minimize potential secondary injuries, know that it is important to deal with your bursitis injury quickly and completely.

Truly, bursitis pain can trigger a vicious overcompensation and re-injury cycle - which is why it is absolutely critical to focus on methods that improve and strengthen the injured bursa in a timely manner. The faster you truly heal, the less chance you have of sinking into a downward spiral of re-injury, scar tissue growth, atrophy and overcompensation injuries.



Okay, So I Have Bursitis ...What Should I Do Now?

If you suspect you may have bursitis, the first thing to do is consult your physician; only your physician can give you a proper diagnosis and from this, determine a course of proper treatment. After seeking medical advice, your physician will determine the degree of severity and whether or not it is infected (important!). An infected bursa is known as septic bursitis and can be life threatening - so get it checked out! In some cases of bursitis, your physician may recommend removal (known as a bursectomy) in which case a conservative treatment protocol would be recommended after your skin heals up from surgery.

In most cases however, your physician will recommend conservative treatment options. A general outline of our conservative home treatment recommendations follow..

Stage 1: If the bursa injury is very recent - use a good quality cold pack and Arnica Pain Relief Cream. If the injury has been going on for awhile and inflammation is reduced, then skip to Stage 2 below.

If you are experiencing pain and swelling in the very early stages of the injury (first 48 to 72 hours), the first step in a conservative treatment protocol would be to focus on reducing the discomfort by applying a Cold Compress or Ice Pack to the injured bursa along with a high quality pain relief cream such as our Arnica Infusion Cream.

Not only will you use your Cold Compress or Ice Pack for the first 48 to 72 hours after the injury, but you should also use it during other stages of the healing process. Some examples include...

  • after any activity that puts stress on your bursa (and surrounding soft tissue) in a moderate way. It is wise to quickly apply cold to not only reduce the pain, but to also minimize tissue damage that may have occurred during the prior event.
  • If you have a job that requires you to place some demands on your injured joint. If that is the case, use cold immediately following work and if the opportunity allows - use it for 15 to 20 minutes during lunch or another break time.
  • If you are in a post-operative situation where cold compression would be utilized heavily for at least the first few weeks following the procedure. Similarly, if you are scheduled for upcoming surgery, then you will need a cold pack to use.

Having a Cold Compress or Ice Pack available at home to use if and when the need arises is helpful. Many of you already do so.

However, too many people over-focus on cold in later stages while ignoring the most critical aspect to healing - nourishing the injured tissues with a healthy supply of blood flow needed to repair and rebuild the injured tissues.

This leads to the most important recommendation...

Stage 2: Focus on Increasing Blood Flow To The Injured Bursa - As This is How the Body's Healing Process is Stimulated

Even though the concept is simple, improving blood flow to injured soft tissue (bursae, muscles, tendons) can be difficult. When talking about blood flow in the bursa, challenges are even greater as bursae receive very little blood flow. Traditional methods require your muscle to move to promote blood flow (exercise), but that same motion that promotes blood flow can at times lead to making your pain and condition worse.

  • Have you succumbed to re-injury by returning to work too quickly?
  • How many times in the past have you aggravated your bursitis just trying to perform basic tasks around the home?
  • Is your bursitis preventing you from work or activities you love to do?

Most people we deal with tell us these scenarios have happened to them many times in the past. Perhaps it has already happened to you.

Promoting blood flow within a soft tissue injury to help the body heal itself is a concept that has been utilized for centuries. This is where the focus has to be if you are seeking long-term improvement.

Oxygen and nutrients, carried within the blood, are critical for the body to heal itself. Without proper blood flow, recovering from an injury or condition will be delayed...sometimes for a very long period of time.

The real challenge is how do you promote blood flow to your bursa and surrounding soft tissue without causing further injury?

how TShellz heats soft tissue

This is why the T•Shellz Wrap®is such an important tool. The whole purpose of the wrap is to provide localized heat while also significantly increasing blood flow to tissue in the treatment area. The result of this is as follows:

  • Blood vessels within the treatment area relax and naturally expand (this is termed "vasodilation") permitting more blood flow to reach the very tissues you are trying to heal.
  • When tissue temperature increases, the tissues increase both in length and flexiblity. Elongated and flexible tissue is less likely to strain and tear, so your risk of further injury and/or reinjury is reduced when this occurs. Less injury during recovery means 1) your recovery will be streamlined and not sidelined due to recurring injury, and 2) less re-injury will mean less scar tissue should grow in the area.
  • Enhanced blood flow benefits tissue in a number of ways: 1) It is likely to clear the area of toxins and excess fluid build up more quickly, thereby reducing inflammation and 2) Scar tissue can form in areas that are starved for blood flow - an enhanced blood flow is more likely to reduce such occurrences.
tshellz blood flow soft tissue

Once energy from the T•Shellz Wrap® absorbs into the treatment area, the metabolic response then kick starts the process - more blood now begins to flow in and around the application area. Injured soft tissue needs the extra blood flow to heal as it is through the blood the body carries the oxygen, water and nutrients needed for proper and long-term healing.

Now, on to recommendation number two in the journey to heal your bursitis...

The T•Shellz Wrap® - The Blood Flow Boost Your Body Depends On For The Long Term Healthy Tissue

The best option we came across in our research to accomplish a safe, substantial boost in blood flow to tissue in the treatment area is the T•Shellz Wrap®. Use of this device will results in an increase of blood flow to the treatment area - all in a non-invasive manner.

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

Using a T•Shellz Wrap® will not expose you to the risk of causing further harm to soft tissue like you can when using rigorous exercise. The T•Shellz Wrap® accomplishes the goal of indirectly stimulating blood circulation without the need for intensive exercise and as such reduces your risk of re-injury.

The T•Shellz Wrap® - Accelerated Blood Flow

tshellz for hamstring

The purpose of a T•Shellz Wrap® is to ease pain by dilating blood vessels, decrease stiffness by elongating soft tissue, improve blood circulation, and boost metabolism and enzyme activity. In stimulating localized blood flow to damaged soft tissue, you provide needed oxygen, water and nutrients to grow strong healthy collagen. In addition, you will experience a clearing of toxins and excess fluid build up from the injury site. Over the intermediate term, this helps to reduce incidents of swelling as trapped fluids will be whisked away - reducing pressure on blood vessels.

Using the T•Shellz Wrap® is truly a unique experience. Within moments of applying a treatment, you can feel the healing sensation due to the increase in blood flow within the area. During a treatment, and for quite some time after you finish, the treated area will feel relaxed and less painful. It's a very soothing sensation and extremely effective.


Who Should Use the T•Shellz Wrap®

We recommend the use of a T•Shellz Wrap®:

  • If you have injured tendons, ligaments or muscle, then the T•Shellz Wrap® will provide the all-important function of boosting blood circulation where it is needed most.
  • If you are dealing with soft tissue conditions affecting your range of motion.
  • If you have a chronic soft tissue condition that has lasted for years- this device is intended to kick start the recovery process and help strengthen surrounding and supporting tissues.
  • If you are still working with an soft tissue injury, the T•Shellz Wrap® will help relax injured soft tissue prior to work and after a day at the job.
  • If you are still trying to enjoy your favorite activities such as gardening, tennis, golf, etc - use the T•Shellz Wrap® prior to activity to help reduce chances of re-injuring or re-aggravating those targeted tissues.
  • If you are suffering from bursitis and want to treat a major source of it (inflammation and damage to tissue surrounding the bursa sac). Through trauma, overuse or degenerative changes, muscle and tendons surrounding the bursa sacs will tighten and constrict. When they do, they place pressure on the bursa, causing it to become irritated. Applying a T•Shellz Wrap® to the area will help relax tissue in the treatment area, taking pressure off the bursa.
  • If you have been to a clinic for some form of massage or stretching and your PT or physician has recommended stretching and/or conservative treatments for home.
  • If you have upcoming surgery scheduled for your soft tissue injury, then you will find a blood circulation booster to be a powerful tool after surgery to help surgically repaired tissues recover for long-term health. (once the surgery wound has healed and your physician has given the ok - minimum 6 weeks after surgery)
  • If you are experiencing atrophy in your joint and want to reduce the risk of re-injury (or further injury) while stretching - we recommend its use every time before you stretch.

Increased Blood Circulation = Increased Healing Capability


T•Shellz Wraps® contain a unique Carbon Fiber Energy Pad which is flexible and will shape to conform to your body. This Energy Pad emits a uniform wave of perfectly safe energy over its entire surface. This energy is absorbed by soft tissue in the treatment area, opening blood vessels, resulting in an increase in blood flow. Increased blood circulation is what your body needs to accelerate the healing of soft tissue and this is why we recommend the T•Shellz Wrap®.

The Leg T•Shellz Wrap® is an FDA Registered Medical Device and is suitable for use in therapeutic clinics and FROM HOME. It is completely safe for people and patients to use for themselves.

The technology found in a T•Shellz Wrap® has been used for decades in the worlds of professional and amateur sports - a contributing factor as to why athletes seem to recover from injuries so quickly.

Have you ever wondered by an athlete can return to activity after 3 or 4 weeks following a tendon or muscle injury - while your average person takes much longer to return back to normal? The secret isn't really that much of a secret - it involves consistent treatments (meaning multiple times a day) using a treatment like the T•Shellz Wrap® to stimulate blood flow to the injured tissues. Most athletes have the luxury of using in-house facilities many times per day.

How many us can afford the time and money to visit a clinic multiple times a day? Very few indeed. This is how you can gain some of the advantages that athletes enjoy in their injury recovery - by using a device like the T•Shellz Wrap® two or three times a day on a consistent basis.

Consistent Treatments = Consistent And Long Term Improvement

When Should I Use My T•Shellz Wrap® During the Day?

The most common question we receive from individuals prior to purchasing is - how many times a day should I be using my T•Shellz Wraps® and when should I be using them? While treatment plans will differ for each individual and their specific injury, there are general guidelines that should be adhered to.

  • Use a Cold Compress or Ice Pack when you are experiencing inflammation (usually after exertion or movement of the injury area).

The T•Shellz Wrap® would then be used:

  • Right after rising from bed in the morning (as this is when your joint is most stiff)
  • Prior to going to bed at night (to relax the joint, allowing for better sleep)
  • Before you know you will be using your injured joint (going to work, driving, walking/running, etc).

We Guarantee That If You Use Our Products for 60 days as Directed, Your Bursitis Pain Will be Greatly Reduced or Eliminated and Your Joint Flexibility will Increase. If This Does Not Happen, We Will Refund Your Money.

 

We are an FDA Registered Company, and our TShellz Wrap is an FDA Registered Medical Device suitable for use in hospitals and therapeutic clinics. Since it is deemed safe for patients to use themselves, the TShellz Wrap can be used for home treatment.


Stage 3 - In Between Treatments With T•Shellz Wrap®, Apply Our New Fast Acting Pain Relief Cream Called ARNICA INFUSION

Dealing with aches and pains affecting the foot, ankle, leg, knee, hamstring, hip, back, arm, shoulder, elbow, wrist, or hand? If so, then applying the Arnica Infusion to any of these targeted areas will bring about fast relief from the pain and sore tissues. Simply apply a small amount of cream to the body and moments later, you will experience a soothing and comforting sensation over the area.

Arnica Infusion is specially designed to relieve pain due to sore muscles and joints associated with arthritis, backaches, sprains, strains, and bruises. No matter if you are dealing with an acute injury, chronic pain, or a general "flare-up" - you will experience fast relief from pain and inflammation.

mendmeshop arnica pain relief cream

This is a product that many of our current MendMeShop customers asked us to develop. So we focused our time and resources over the past few years and came up, with we believe, will be one of more effective, fast acting, topical pain relief creams on the market.

You are likely familiar with some of the standard topical agents on the market as most of our customers use them. The are mass marketed and even found in most department stores now.

Well, we are here to say that Arnica Infusion goes many steps beyond what they offer.

Made in the USA at an FDA registered manufacturing facility, you can be assured that Arnica Infusion is both safe and effective. We only source top grade ingredients while implementing strict quality control checks during every step of the production process. Expect the same high quality that MendMeShop customers have been accustomed to since we started the company in 2005.

The "Cool Blue" formula is the perfect balance between the smooth application of a cream and the effective absorbing factor of a gel. It is not too thick and not too thin - just the right texture. Best of all, it feels very nice on the skin!

Each application of Arnica Infusion feels so comforting and soothing, we are certain it will become an item you will not want to live without.

Arnica Infusion Ingredients

The Arnica Infusion formula is based on a combination of scientific research and the use of high quality ingredients. The properties within the formula were chosen for their pain relief, anti-inflammatory, and soothing qualities.

The acting ingredients within the formula include ones many of us are familiar with; along with ones that have not received a lot of publicity (only in research circles). Extensive testing resulted in a blending of ingredients that provides the most synergistic of benefits.

The notable ingredients in the Arnica Infusion formula include:

  • Arnica - powerful anti-inflammatory, speeds recovery, enhances circulation
  • Menthol - provides deep penetrating pain relief with a nice cooling sensation
  • Vitamin B6 - promotes normal nerve function
  • MSM - supports healthy connective tissues, anti-inflammatory
  • Ilex Leaf Extract - increases circulation, skin conditioner
  • Vitamin E - anti-inflammatory, enhances circulation, hydrates the skin
  • Aloe - anti-inflammatory properties, soothes the skin
  • Tea Tree - enhances penetration of ingredients

Extensive quality control procedures during the manufacturing process ensure the ingredients and final product are both safe and effective. We would not stake our reputation on anything but the best.

When Do I Apply the Arnica Infusion?

While At Work

Apply Arnica Infusion at work to help reduce acute discomfort associated with overuse of muscles and joints. No matter if you are in a physical demanding job or work within an office environment, you will be placing stress on different parts of the body and aches and pains will result.

Before Or After Work, Sports, & Activity

If you suffer from a sprained ligament, pulled muscle, strained tendon, or even bruising - apply Arnica Infusion for quick relief of the pain.

Chronic Pain Suffering

Application of Arnica Infusion can be done up to a maximum of 4 times per day on a consistent basis to help bring about relief from various pains and aches.

In-between Treatments With the T•Shellz Wraps®

Follow up your T-Shellz and Cold treatments with an application of Arnica Infusion. Combine the pain relieving benefits of Arnica Infusion along with the healing benefits of the wraps to make your recovery go much more smoothly.

Do not apply Arnica Infusion within a 2 hour timespan before a T•Shellz Wrap® treatment.

Whether you decide to use the Arnica Infusion in conjunction with the T•Shellz Wrap® and other treatments - or if you decide to use the cream as a stand-alone product - you will not be disappointed with the results. We guarantee it.


A Note On OverCompensation

Since you are reading this, you probably know that serious bursitis does not just disappear. Over time, it will usually wreak havoc on you due to lack of movement and over-compensation. It will often cause secondary strains and tendon injuries on your other joints due to overcompensation. Recovery takes a longer time for such chronic (long term) injuries, but proper healing is essential to regain strength and get you back to the activities you enjoy.

The longer your bursitis endures, the greater the risk of running into serious overcompensation injuries.

To Stop Re-Injury & Reduce the Risk of a More Serious Overcompensation Injury, Heal Your Bursitis Quickly & Completely!

Anyone in need of rapid recovery and complete healing must consider a comprehensive treatment plan that includes an effective means to minimize swelling and inflammation yet also stimulate blood flow and tissue elasticity. We have found no better set of tools that can be used at home than this:

Conservative Treatment Tools Our Clients Have Used to Help
Limit Damage & Boost The Body's Soft Tissue Repair Process at Home
(What You Need For Your Soft Tissue Injury)

  • A Cold Compress or Ice Pack to reduce inflammation wherever there is pain and/or swelling (as soon as possible).
  • A TShellz Wrap to increase blood-flow to the treatment area (Circulatory Boost).
  • MendMeShop Arnica Pain Cream for temporary relief of pain due to sore muscles and joints.
  • An Exercise & Stretching Plan to prevent muscle atrophy and shortened tendons in the leg. A proper plan will increase elasticity and strengthen the muscles and tendons in the ankle, calf, knee, and upper leg.

Conservative treatment tools just like these have been used successfully by thousands of soft tissue injury sufferers - just like you.




T•Shellz Wrap® = Enhanced Blood Flow in the Treatment Area

 

We believe the use of T•Shellz Wraps® for boosting blood flow to soft tissue in the area of application is one of the most under-utilized home treatment options available on the market today. We have client after client that have tried many options out there and have been amazed at how effective and fast the TShellz Wrap treatment can relieve pain and increase blood flow in the treatment area.

With regular use of the TShellz Wrap:

  • Your pain will be reduced*.
  • Due to increased blood flow, soft tissue in the treatment area will be expected to recover at an accelerated rate with reduced potential for re-injury*.
  • Tissue in the treated area should experience a larger range of motion and increased extensibility of collagen tissue* due to the heat effect on soft tissue. This should translate into a reduced rate of re-injury occurrence as soft tissue is known to lengthen and become more flexible when exposed to warm temperature. (*Chapter 9 of "Therapeutic Heat and Cold", 4th edition. (amazon.com link - Ed. Justus F. Lehmann, M.D., Williams, and Wilkin)

Reduction of Swelling (and Swelling Associated Pain)...

Would you know you injured yourself if there was no pain? Probably not! Pain and swelling perform a useful role in letting you know that you did, in fact, injure yourself. Pain and swelling are what get you to seek out medical attention in the hopes of finding a way to reduce the pain and heal your injury.

Inflamed bursae cause extreme pain and reduce your ability to move. We all know that if the injury was healed, the pain would go away but what about the opposite situation? If the pain was gone, does that mean the injury is better? Unfortunately, that is not always true. Just remember that an injury is not healed just because the swelling is gone - this is why you need to keep working on the bursa area consistently with your home conservative treatment regimen that includes a Cold Compress or Ice Pack, a T•Shellz Wrap® and a good exercise/stretch routine.

Most sufferers of bursitis or chronic bursa pain will recover more quickly if they treat their injury correctly. If you have a bad bursitis injury and/or tendonitis condition, you will benefit greatly by treating your injury correctly. That means using the right therapies every single day.



Post-Operative Recovery Options

Doctors and Surgeons are always improving the techniques used in surgery, and results from surgery now are much more positive than they were in the past. However, all surgeries introduce scar tissue, and recovery from surgery can be disappointing and take longer than anticipated.

If surgical intervention is required, you will find we have effective solutions for before and after surgery. Key areas for pre surgery is reduction of inflammation, while post surgery the focus is on pain reduction, inflammation reduction, range of motion increases, and minimizing of scar tissue growth. You can read more about effective options for pre/post surgery here.

If you do wind up getting surgery, know that rehabilitation at-home while attending regular PT or doctor appointments is vital for your overall recovery.

leg T•Shellz Wrap

Consistent exercise and conservative treatment on a daily basis during your rehabilitation while working with your doctor or PT is key. This is why you should seriously consider talking with your doctor or surgeon about maximizing your recovery by using the T•Shellz Wrap® at home once you are approved for PT (this is typically a minimum of 6 weeks after a significant surgery).

The more consistent you work at enhancing blood flow to surgically repaired soft tissue, the more consistent the healing process will be. Nourishing the tissues will more oxygen and nutrients (which are carried through the blood stream) will give the body a better ability to produce new, healthy collagen. In effect, you will help the body produce stronger soft tissue while potentially reducing the number of setbacks that can occur following surgical procedures.

Blood Flow & Its Association with Soft Tissue Health


Promoting blood flow around an injured area to help the body heal itself is a concept that has been utilized for centuries. Oxygen and nutrients, carried within the blood, are critical for the body to heal itself. Without proper blood flow, recovering from an tendinitis injury or bursitis condition will be delayed...sometimes for a very long period of time.

Even though the concept is simple, improving blood flow can be difficult. When the injury is bursitis related, the challenges are even greater. Traditional methods require your joint to move to promote blood flow, but that same motion that promotes blood flow can also lead to making your pain and condition worse.

  • Have you aggravated your bursitis doing light exercises/stretching?
  • Have you aggravated your bursitis just trying to perform basic tasks around the home?
  • Is your bursitis injury preventing you from activities you love to do?

Most people we deal with tell us these scenarios have happened to them many times in the past. The real challenge is how to promote blood flow to the joint without causing further injury. This goal is further complicated by the fact that most bursitis injuries arise in our most commonly used joints.

The Fight Against Atrophy

Shortened muscles and tendons due to lack of use is a real problem during recovery. When you start to feel better and use the joint, the shortened muscles and tendons get over-strained, introducing small microtears. These microtears start the formation of scar tissue, which unlike muscle or tendon, is completely inflexible. Once there is scar tissue in there, the tears will continue; eventually you've got a serious problem with a joint that does not flex as much as it did before and this becomes a chronic condition. You'll know you have scar tissue when you get shooting pain if you stretch your joint too far... it is something that PT's often deal with (ie. shoulder manipulation).

To prevent this, use the TShellz Wrap before undertaking any significant activity, as this type of treatment is known to increase flexibility and length of tissues in the area of application. This is actually why we advise plantar fasciitis sufferers to treat themselves with a Plantar TShellz Wrap first thing in the morning before walking (walking stresses the plantar ligament on the bottom of the foot). After treatment, tissue in the bottom of the foot will be more flexible - this means it will be able to handle higher walking stresses before it starts to micro-tear. The ability for soft tissue to stretch further before micro-tearing will allow you to gently stretch your recovering joint without re-injuring it yet again. This is a huge boon for recovery. We also highly advise the TShellz Wrap it for post surgery recovery, as surgery will always introduce scar tissue and TShellz Wrap treatments in post-op recovery will reduce scar tissue growth, increase joint flexibility and get you back on your feet faster.


The Key Points To Keep in Mind When Treating Your Injury

Make Sure That Complete Healing is Your #1 Goal

We all know that if the injury was healed, the pain would go away but what about the opposite situation? If the pain is gone, does that mean the injury is better? Unfortunately, this is not always true.

Too many people only focus on suppressing pain symptoms while providing less attention to the true healing aspects of the body. Experiencing less pain, while obviously a good short-term goal, does not equate to underlying healing. Scar tissue can remain for months after one gets to a point of being relatively pain-free. However, as long the weak and brittle scar tissue remains, you are susceptible to re-injury or re-aggravation. Certain motions or movements can cause the weaker tissue to easily tear - resulting in some reversal of the recovery up until that point.

This is why we recommend for people to continue with their doctor or PT recommended exercises and to continue with mild treatments of the T•Shellz Wrap® for a period of time - to better ensure complete recovery.

Ongoing treatments to enhance circulation are intended to soothe, relax and stimulate the body's ability to heal damaged tissue. T•Shellz treatments also result in the ability of soft tissue to extend further due to the effect of heat on soft tissue. As your muscles and tendons become longer, the pressure they exert on your bursa will decrease - thus reducing the aggravation and friction on your bursa. Further to this, longer and more flexible muscles are less likely to strain or sprain - further reducing your risk of new, secondary injury complications due to bursitis.

Resting Will Help, But Only Temporarily

People tell us all the time, "I was told that if I stay off my feet for a few weeks, my pain will disappear for good."

The truth is, bursitis will often arise due to a culmination of numerous factors such as alignment issues, poor posture, acute injuries and overcompensation issues resulting from other muscle and soft tissue ailments.

It may take weeks or months for these pain triggers to surface. When they , however, merely resting will solve the underlying issues. You need to utilize actions and options that actually treat the source of the pain and help reverse the damage that has been done.

Resting has a role to play, but it is only one small factor in a recovery plan.

What is the success rate of the T•Shellz Wraps®? Do they really work?

We try and keep in touch with a large percentage of our customers, and we encourage them to do the same. In doing so, we have received a lot of feedback as we have been in the business since 2008.

T•Shellz Leg Wrap MendMeShop

The energy from the T•Shellz Wrap® ultimately will gently warm soft tissue, improve blood circulation, and boost metabolism and enzyme activity. This is why it works so well - because the body responds very well to this energy. In stimulating blood flow to damaged tissue, you provide the tissue with the oxygen, water and nutrients to grow strong healthy collagen. In addition, you will experience a clearing of toxins and excess fluid build up from the injury site. Over the intermediate term, this helps to reduce incidents of swelling as trapped fluids will be whisked away - reducing pressure on vessels.

How much time do I need to dedicate for treatments? Are the products easy to use?

The T•Shellz Wraps® are very easy devices to use. After one or two uses, you will engage in the treatments with ease. Very detailed instructions are included and you are always welcome to contact us by phone or email if the need for help arises.

In regards to the T•Shellz Wrap®, it is ideal to use the device two or three times a day on average. Each treatment session is a maximum of 20 minutes in duration and the device will turn off automatically at that time. Typically, people use the T•Shellz Wrap® before bed, upon awakening (or not long after) and one other time during the day when the opportunity presents itself. For people in an office setting, many will use the device at work (as it can be worn over clothing). For others, they will use the device an our or two after work.

A Cold Compress or Ice Pack is primarily used following activity that stresses the injured tissues (following work, after a sports activity, or just suffering a general re-injury). This is done to reduce inflammation and to minimize tissue damage. Treatments are 15 to 20 minutes in duration.

How long has MendMeShop been in business

We established our firm in December of 2005. Our track record in this field continues to grow and we plan on being around for many decades to come.

What is your return policy? Is it the standard 30 days?

We go above and beyond what other companies offer - we offer a full 60 day money back guarantee with no restocking fees.

Bursitis Inflammation Facts:

Bursitis is the inflammation or irritation of the bursa.


Bursitis is most often caused by repetitive, minor impact on the area, or from a sudden, more serious injury.


Bursitis high-risk activities include gardening, raking, carpentry, shoveling, painting, scrubbing, tennis, golf, skiing, throwing, and pitching.


If bursitis persists and is left untreated, calcium deposits can form within the bursae. These calcium deposits limit range of motion and can lead to a permanently stiff joint.


Incorrect posture at work or home and poor stretching or conditioning before exercise can also lead to bursitis.
