Home Conservative Treatments for Meniscus Tears



The good news is that most minor meniscus injuries will heal with simple home conservative treatments and surgery is often not needed.

Some small meniscus tears have no symptoms at all and may disappear on their own. Other less severe or non-complex tears will subside with conservative treatments, especially if your knee is stable and doesn't lock. These tears are often located on the outer edges of your meniscus.

It is the blood in your body that heals and repairs damage to your tissue. By transporting oxygen and nutrients to the area and flushing away dead tissue, your blood helps your body to heal itself. Unfortunately, when a meniscus injury occurs and you have knee pain, you need to prevent further injury and rest the area to allow it to heal. By resting, you actually limit the flow of blood and this slows down the healing process. The trick to healing a meniscus tear (as long as the tear is in a zone that gets blood flow) is to slow tissue damage, reduce scar tissue, generate an increased circulation to the area and find ways to prevent further damage.

If you suspect you may have a medial meniscus tear injury..


Before we go further, it's important to understand that your body is capable of healing itself - though it requires the flow of blood to do so. When it comes to meniscus injuries, the inner third of the meniscus (known as "the white zone") really gets little to no blood flow and if you have a meniscus tear in this area, your physician will probably recommend surgery to fix it. This is one of many reasons why you need to see a doctor - only they will know if the tear is "surgically necessary" (SN). A physician will always try to opt for the conservative treatment first - usually, it works although it takes time to heal. If your meniscus tear is outside the white zone, then, with good blood flow in the area, the damaged fibrocartilage will receive oxygen and much needed nutrients while flushing away toxins and waste - otherwise known as healing. Inflammation and reduced movement (lack of activity or on-going immobility) reduces the flow of blood to an area that's already receiving very little blood flow which is why it is important to keep it down. If you are still active with a meniscus tear, you run a risk of increasing the severity of the injury; if there has been some healing, you could re-injure your meniscus all over again and/or easily make it worse.

Blood Flow - the natural healing process in your body - needs assistance for medial meniscus injuries because blood flow is greatly reduced when you're injured. When treating a medial meniscus injury or really any type of meniscus or knee injury (ie. lateral meniscus tear, bucket-handle tear, posterior horn tear, or anterior horn tear), you need to increase blood flow to your injury while your knee is healing. This increase in blood flow will accelerate your body's own ability to heal itself. We believe the Knee T•Shellz Wrap® is the most highly effective blood flow stimulation device that is registered with the FDA and available for home use.

If you have a medial meniscus injury, it's very important to heal it quickly and completely. Minimizing the healing time should be an obvious goal, as a chronic medial meniscus tear will limit your ability to go about your daily routine for a long period of time.

A seemingly small, nagging injury in your meniscus that's not properly treated can lead to a chronic painful degenerative medial meniscus tear that can persist for years if not properly treated.



Home Remedies via Conservative Treatments for Meniscus Injuries - What You Need To Know

Meniscus surgery is the most commonly performed orthopedic surgery in the United States1. One major reason for this is that the meniscus is very important; knowing the heavy correlation between meniscus deficiency and osteoarthritis, doctors are doing everything they can to try and repair a meniscus instead of removing it. Doctors and surgeons know that meniscus surgery will introduce more scar tissue into the knee - this is why they only recommend surgery as a last resort. This added scar tissue will be problematic, requiring physical therapy and conservative treatment options post-surgery. If you receive good news from your doctor, he or she will predict that your meniscus can be successfully healed through the use of conservative treatment therapies - without resorting to knee surgery. If you have been given news that you're going to need surgery, once surgery is complete your doctor will once again start you on home conservative therapies. Talk to your doctor about when you can incorporating the Knee T•Shellz Wrap® into your home treatment plan during your post surgery recovery.

If you have undergone surgery, we highly recommend you go to our Meniscus Post-Surgery page and learn more about post-surgery rehab.



Some conservative treatment methods recommended include:



Meniscus Tear Home Conservative Treatment Options

Step 1 - Reduce Pain and Swelling with Cold Compression

The first step for conservative treatment of a meniscus tear is to reduce the swelling in the knee to "open up" the area for more blood flow. Anyone in the health-care business knows that your blood supplies the oxygen and much needed nutrients required to heal soft tissue tears. This is why for years, doctors, trainers, and other medical professionals have recommended RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) to treat the pain and swelling of fresh injuries, chronic pain, re-injuries and overcompensation strains.

This is important because once blood vessels are blocked or damaged, they can no longer carry oxygenated blood to your damaged tissue so this tissue begins to break-down. Without cold therapytissue damage and break-down continue as they cannot get the oxygen they need to survive By limiting the amount of damage done to the meniscus (and other soft tissue in the knee), you also limit the amount of healing that needs to occur. Arresting the damage (preventing the injury from worsening), is an extremely important step to get quickly on the path heal both acute or chronic knee injuries faster and with less pain.


Use a Cold Compress or Ice Pack:



Step 2 - Improve Circulation, Soften Scar Tissue & Prevent Re-Injury with a T•Shellz Wrap®

Quite a few people think their meniscus is healed after their swelling and inflammation are gone and their knee feels better. They also make the mistake of returning to regular activities too soon without proper time for healing. The truth is that healing takes time and after the swelling is gone, your meniscus injury isn't even close to being fully healed. Proper healing takes time - especially when it comes to cartilage, and quite often meniscal damage can persist without the presence of pain or swelling.

After the inflammation in and around your knee has been reduced, providing extra blood flow to the meniscus (and other soft tissue in the knee joint) is recommended; this added blood flow increases the transport of oxygen and nutrients to the damaged soft tissue - accelerating the healing process. We created a term for this - we call it Circulatory Boost. It should also be stated that at this time (when swelling and inflammation is gone and your body is trying to heal the damage) it is imperative for you to focus on avoiding re-injury and strengthening the weakened tissue in your knee. It is vital that you don't go back to activities too soon because you can easily bring about a major setback in your recovery...


If this sounds like you - You're not alone...

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 your injured meniscus without causing further damage. This goal is even more complicated by the fact that you have to use your knee for nearly everything in your active life.


What can you do to actually start healing your meniscus?

knee surgery meniscus gauze wrap

The answer is simple. Your body can heal itself and it's the blood in your body that makes it all happen. Your blood is how everything that's good inside of you is transported directly to your injured meniscus tissue. Your blood carries oxygen, nutrients and water right to the source of your injury and pain. Bringing proper blood flow to your injured meniscus is essential to healing.

Promoting blood flow around injured tissue to help the body heal itself is a concept that's been used for centuries. Oxygen and nutrients, carried in your own blood, are critical for the body to heal itself. Without adequate blood flow, recovering from your meniscus injury will be slow... sometimes so slow that it cannot keep up with natural degeneration over time.

Even though the concept is simple, getting more blood flow to a meniscal injury is often harder than it seems. Traditional methods require you to move your sore/stiff knee in order to promote blood flow, but this same motion that promotes blood flow can also make your pain and meniscus injury much worse (especially if you need to immobilize your knee during surgery recovery). Relying on movement alone to increase blood flow puts you in danger of re-injuring your meniscus.

So what do you do when you need to increase blood flow, but you can't move your knee without re-injuring your meniscus?


This is where the Knee T•Shellz Wrap® comes in!

Regular treatments with a Knee T•Shellz Wrap® can reduce pain and stiffness from scar tissue and increase overall flexibility in your knee. Increased blood flow will whisk away damaged tissue, toxins, and any bacteria in or around your injured meniscus to promote more effective healing. Getting rid of toxins will allow all of the positive healing processes to start in your injury. Increasing blood flow will also increase the amount of oxygen that's being sent to your injured tissue AND boost your tissue's ability to absorb oxygen. (reference: link)

Remember, the meniscus is cartilage and does not receive much blood flow naturally. When you rest your knee, you are not creating the natural blood flow your knee usually receives. With the use of Circulation Boost you can increase your body's blood supply to the knee and healing power.

Keeping your knee as healthy and strong as possible throughout the healing process will allow you to get back to your regular activities faster. The Knee T•Shellz Wrap®, available exclusively from MendMeShop®, provides effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief and healing with no side effects.

The benefits of Circulatory Boost do not end once your knee pain stops! Even when your meniscus has healed, your activities can put your knee at risk of an overuse injury, tightness, or another tear. A T•Shellz Wrap® treatment before activity is an easy way to warm up the knee tissues and prepare them for use. Then, end your day with another treatment to prevent tightness from setting in overnight. This incredible healing tool will be the ticket to healthy knees for years to come!

During your recovery, you will probably have to modify and/or eliminate any activities that cause pain or discomfort in your knee area until your pain and inflammation settle. With these therapies you will notice improvement within a few weeks, with most meniscus patients seeing some improvement quickly. The more diligent you are with your treatment and rehabilitation, the faster you will see successful results. If you start using your knee before it has a chance to heal properly (even though it may feel better), you can end up doing a lot more damage than good!

Step 4: Physio

PT is a beneficial way to help decrease pain in the soft tissues, restore atrophied muscles and improve knee and leg strength and mobility. The type of PT and the duration will be dependent on the extent of your meniscus injury.

Gentle massage around the injured knee area or small flexing or extending knee movements (if not painful) will also help increase blood flow, oxygen, nutrients, and will prevent stiffness.

Once your pain starts to diminish, a physiotherapist will set up an individualized knee and leg strengthening and stretching exercise program for you to perform at home or in the gym. This will be based on your needs and abilities, and will help you return to performing your normal routines. Individuals will often exercise or lift weights on their own to try and build up their strength; however in doing so, they can do more damage. It is extremely important to strengthen your muscles properly, as they may have weakened during the period of non-use. A trained therapist will help to ensure your rehabilitation process is effective. For best, long-term results use PT along with an exercise program.

A trained therapist will help to ensure your rehabilitation process is effective. For best, long-term results use PT along with an exercise program.

There are also alternative forms of PT geared to your lifestyle, condition and/or if you have had a surgical procedure done. Some common forms of PT include:

Active PT - Stretching, range of motion, strengthening and pain-relief exercises specifically intended to improve the function of your knee. It is common, when suffering a meniscus injury, for physical therapists to also recommend exercises for your hamstring and quadriceps muscles. Your physical therapist is hoping that strengthening these areas will reduce the amount of weight placed on your knee and increase the level of assistance the rest of your leg gives your knee during movement.

Passive PT - Treating pain, swelling or increase circulation before and/or after active PT. Some passive PT techniques your physical therapist will use include massage or manual manipulation, temperature therapy (warming or cooling of your tissue) or use of clinical devices such as an electrical stimulator or transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) or Therapeutic Ultrasound.

Post-Surgical Rehabilitation - After your meniscus surgery, your orthopaedic surgeon and a physical therapist will provide you with a specific treatment plan for your rehabilitation. This will consist of a time-line detailing conservative treatments intended to relieve pain and stimulate healing, as well as specific PT milestones for strengthening your knee and regaining full movement.

Therapeutic swimming exercise

Aquatic PT provides the same benefits of regular PT, and focuses on improving knee function, endurance and flexibility as well as overall balance, coordination, posture, and muscle strength. This type of PT provides exercise and training in a pool setting that reduces the amount of weight placed on your knee while creating resistance for simple movement.

Athletic or sports therapy is geared toward sports-related injuries, especially if you are an athlete of any kind and wish to return to your sport or athletic training as soon as possible after injury or surgery. Therapy of this kind can be explored both before and after surgery, or can be used to avoid surgery altogether. With these treatments, a physical or athletic therapist will take you through full rehabilitation by designing a program that will focus on increasing strength, endurance and agility specific to the sport that you play. Exercise and stretching regimen may be accelerated to return you to sport sooner, and some drills may be created to ease your body back into athletic performance.

meniscus radial tear progression

Occupational Therapy - There are many forms of occupational therapy, but these treatments generally consist of focused therapy meant to gradually return you to your normal, daily living conditions. In most cases, this means creating a transitional period during your rehabilitation so you may return to your work or job. This is definitely the case if your knee injury has occurred through an acute or chronic event related to your occupation. For this type of therapy your physical or occupational therapist will provide exercises and activities that will prepare you for the activity of your job (if it is physically demanding). Your therapist may even assess your work environment to make sure you are using proper equipment and your working conditions are conducive of your knee healing completely and preventing re-injury.


Step 5: Passive Knee Stretching...
an Essential Tool for Complete Knee Injury Recovery

If you have a significant meniscus injury you may undergo surgery or the doctor may prescribe a course of conservative treatments if he/she feels it can heal without surgery. Either way, your doctor or physical therapist will most likely want to to keep much of your weight off your knee and recommend the use of crutches. Within a course of conservative treatments, they will also prescribe gentle stretching of an injured knee. They don't prescribe this to annoy you - it is in fact the most important part of knee injury recovery. You probably know of someone that chose not to do these stretches as it is common - and they paid a high price for it. By not listening to the therapist (ie. not stretching), there is a huge chance of re-injuring your knee or even sustaining an injury greater than the original injury ever was.

meniscus zones top down view

One of the most important tasks you will be required to complete by our doctor or physical therapist is stretching your knee after injury. 'Working' the tissue, strengthen the tendons, ligaments but the key ingredient is increasing blood flow to the area. The meniscus is a very blood starved area and exercising the area will allow extra blood flow into the tissue. The new flush of blood also helps clear away any dead tissue and waste inside the joint.

Scar tissue develops as part of the healing process. Even when you're injured and in pain you need to keep moving to break-up scar tissue. Regular movement can increase healthy range of motion (ROM) of your knee, guaranteeing you a speedier recovery process and return to regular activities. Moving when you're injured is hard. Since moving while injured can be painful most people think it's better to stop moving, rest their knee and hope that their knee injury will heal all on its' own. Even though rest is important to recovery, too much rest during the recovery process will increase the amount of scar tissue in your knee.

During the healing process your body will fill in tears in your knee 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 patch tears together. Scar tissue can form fast to bring together the edges of a tear, 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) collagen does. Scar tissue fibers will lay down over top of your tear in a cluttered, messy and jumbled up way.

>Imagine throwing a bunch of toothpicks in the air... When they hit the ground they will land in a random, unorganized way. It even seems silly to think that they could land perfectly straight and all in the same direction. This is how scar tissue works - the scar tissue that forms in a tear will be unorganized and won't line up properly with the healthy tissue surrounding the tear. This scar tissue will also attach to everything in and around your knee injury including the surrounding healthy tissue as well. This can result in a long-term fusing together of your ligaments, muscles and tendons; it is this fusing of scar tissue that stiffens your knee, reducing mobility and making the injury even more painful when you move. Using a good passive knee stretching routine at home - every day - will help you heal and ensure your tissue is strong and healthy!

An Untreated Meniscus Injury Leads To Degenerative Changes In The Knee

A complete removal of the meniscus via surgery will change the way your knee functions - this can also occur in partial meniscus removals if the portion is substantial . What has been shown in numerous studies is that when a meniscus is removed (fully or partially) , it is nearly 100% guaranteed that you sooner or later suffer from osteoarthritis in the knee. Osteoarthritis in the knee means that articular cartilage (the smooth cartilage covering the ends of the bones that meet in the knee joint) wears and breaks down, exposing bone and eventually leading to bone wear and breakdown as well. The simple task of using passive knee stretching on a daily basis will retain knee strength and flexibility, helping slow the onset of osteoarthritis (and other degenerative knee conditions). Passive knee stretching has been shown to decrease rheumatoid arthritis pain and slow down the rate of joint degeneration (source Scandinavian Journal of Rheumatology)

Inflammatory response diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis have been known to leave you with 'morning stiffness'. The constant build-up of inflammation in the tissue and joint blocks the tissue with waste matter. Your are left with weakened muscles and the feeling of an unstable joint with your knee and leg feeling 'drained of energy'. By simply increasing the elasticity of soft tissue in the knee via passive stretching, you can change the over-all health of your knee joint. Stretching soft tissue in the knee on daily basis increases blood flow, helping flush out the toxins inside the knee joint; this results in reduced knee pain. (source US National Library of Medicine)

As you slowly start implementing passive knee stretches, you should find that your knee recovery will accelerate as well. The increased joint flexing will help your knee connective tissue to regain elasticity; the stretching movements in the knee joint will increase blood flow to the recovering injury, further aiding in the healing process. Passive stretching is what lies between bedridden immobility and crutches. Using crutches too quickly can be detrimental to your recovering knee, as many patients can certainly attest. A quick slip on the crutch can easily result in your bad knee bearing your full body weight, often causing a worse re-injury or perhaps a fall.

Incorporating passive knee stretches into your treatment routine (when your physician or physical therapists says you are ready to do so) not only helps minimize the growth of scar tissue, but it also increases the elasticity and strength of the joint. After utilizing passive knee stretches over time, your knee joint will be better prepared to handle higher and higher loads. Eventually you will reach a stage where your knee joint can handle crutches or standing for longer and longer period of time. This is the final stage of recovery and depending on age, the nature of the injury, your weight and many other factors, it can take the longest time to complete. But remember, for knee injuries, it pays to be patient! Rushing your knee injury recovery almost never pays.

A Note On OverCompensation

Since you are reading this, you probably know that serious meniscus injuries do not just disappear. Over time, they usually wreak havoc on other joints in the body due to lack of movement and over-compensation. 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 injury endures, the greater the risk of running into serious overcompensation injuries.

To Stop Re-Injury & Reduce the Risk of a More Serious Overcompensation Injury, You Need to Heal 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 healing 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 to the Knee at Home:

  • A Cold Compress or Ice Pack to reduce inflammation wherever there is pain and/or swelling (as soon as possible).
  • A Knee 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 Knee joint. A proper plan will increase elasticity and strengthen the muscles and tendons in the hip, knee, and ankle.

Conservative treatment tools just like these have been used successfully by thousands of knee 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 knee.

With regular use of the Knee TShellz Wrap:

*Know that every personal soft tissue injury is unique and the TShellz Wrap may not work for everyone. This is why we offer a 60-day money back return on all our TShellz Wrap devices.




In examining thousands of pages of research, we can conclude that the T•Shellz Wrap® should produce the following results:


Effectively helps to enhance blood circulation and
increase the levels of oxygen within your blood.

This, in turn, improves immune system function which increases the body's ability to eliminate toxins and other waste by-products resulting from damaged tissue. This allows the body to more easily stimulate the self healing process.

Stimulates the production of collagen,
which is a building block for human tissue.

Many injuries are the result of trauma to a tendon or muscle, usually causing the tissue to tear. As a result of the tear, your body triggers a natural healing process resulting in pain, inflammation, and the creation of scar tissue, then eventually reinforcing that band-aid solution with flexible tissue (proliferation). Increased blood flow will make this process more quick and efficient in the majority of cases.

Heat will enhance the extensibility of damaged (& surrounding) tissue

This is a very important point. Many people often experience re-injury due to the fact the damaged muscle or soft tissue is tight and the range of motion in the unused joint (due to the intial injury) is restricted. Even the most minor of activities can cause a recovering joint to strain, sprain, or even tear. Every time this happens, your recovery is delayed. This is why using the T•Shellz Wrap® not only now, but also into the future, is wise. Heat energy emitted from the T•Shellz Wrap® is absorbed by tissue, gently warming it, and thereby increasing the elasticity...all without risk of causing further harm and greatly reducing your chances of re-injury.

Reduces stiffness in the treatment areas

Osteoarthritis in the knee is quite common and occurs when the articular cartilage begins to degenerate. Over time, the femur (upper leg bone) rubs against the tibia (lower leg bone) with little or no protection from the articular cartilage. This lead to pain in the knee joint. The space within the joint starts to decrease without the cushioning and stiffness in the knee becomes a problem. The T•Shellz Wrap® excels at emitting a soothing heat, allowing for less stiffness and better range-of-motion. It obviously won't fix arthritis, but it will help alleviate the symptoms and perhaps reduce your risk of secondary strain injuries by improving tissue flexibility in the area.

Contributes to your overall well-being.

Use the T•Shellz Wrap® before activity to reduce risk of further injury, before bed to prevent tightness from setting in during the night, and again in the morning to make your tired body come alive.

Believe me when I say this; words alone cannot accurately describe what the T•Shellz Wrap® can do for you. It truly is something you need to experience first-hand.


Key Points To Keep in Mind When Treating Your Knee 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, never equates 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 therapist recommended exercises and to continue with mild treatments of the T•Shellz Wrap® for a period of time - to better ensure complete healing.

Ongoing treatments to enhance circulation will soothe, relax and help promote a healthy recovery of damaged knee muscles and tendons. Knee T•Shellz treatments will also allow your soft tissue to extend further due to the deep warming sensation created by the enhanced circulation to the treatment area. The more extensible your tissues are, the less likely they are to strain or sprain.

The Knee T•Shellz Wrap® is intended to be highly effective medical device for people suffering from bursitis or other soft tissue knee injuries - such as a tear in your muscle, tendon or other soft tissue, strain, Tendonitis, tendinopathy, tendinosis, impingements, instability, knee spasms, bursitis, capsulitis, pain associated with trigger points, scar tissue, and arthritis.

A huge number of people who contact us about knee pain are unsure about the true causes of their discomfort. It is an amazing statistic and really goes to show how important it is to get a proper diagnosis from your physician. To really deal with a injury, you have to know the injury is - so get to the doctor and find out.

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

The truth is, knee pain is usually a culmination of numerous factors, which often include repetitive stress, high load issues due to excess weight, and/or overcompensation issues resulting from other muscle and soft tissue ailments.

It may take weeks or months for these knee pain triggers to surface, but when they do, merely resting will not solve the underlying issues. You need to utilize 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.


Identify What is Causing Your Knee Problem & Fix It
Otherwise, It May Come Back

In order to provide long lasting relief from your knee pain, you need to identify all the factors that are contributing to it. These factors can include muscle imbalances, short leg syndrome, herniated discs, trauma and tightness to surrounding muscle and soft tissue, etc. The list is certainly significant and it can be frustrating for people who may have no idea where to begin. This is one of many reasons why you should always get to a physician and , in some cases, a specialist to identify the source of your problem.

The Reasons For Our High Success Rate - Our Customers!

We will never claim our products will work for everyone. That is simply impossible to achieve. Everyone has a different capacity for recovery and different circumstances behind their injuries and/or conditions.

In addition, some people may have a hard time sticking with recommended protocol in order to achieve benefits from our devices. Quite simply, our clients that have had successful outcomes have made a small effort to invest 60 minutes a day into the program. If you do the same, chances are you will be very happy with the outcome. The fact that our very low return rate speaks volumes as to the confidence we have that our products will be effective for you! I mean with a full 60 day money back guarantee on our wraps, there really is no risk in trying.

Right after you place an order, email us and we will have a plan developed immediately so you will be able to get started upon arrival of your parcel. We can't promise you miraculous results, however, we do promise to do everything we can to help you with your condition.

However, words are meaningless unless a company stands strongly behind the products they sell. This is what sets us apart from others...we offer people a comprehensive, 60 day, full 100% money back guarantee. We take on all of the risk because we know our products work well for the overwhelming majority of people who purchase them.

Are you still unsure about placing an order? let me address some questions that may causing some hesitation...

What is the success rate of the Achilles 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.

We can say that the return rate on our products is only around 5 to 10% any given month. That is exceptional by anyone's standards. Therefore, we can safely indicate that the overwhelming majority of people who purchase from us do achieve benefits with our products.



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.
