More Tendon Facts:

Tenosynovitis is a condition affecting the sheath that surrounds a tendon. In many cases, the sheath encounters tearing due to inflammation of the underlying tendon. The majority of tenosynovitis sufferers are female.

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

Except for a fully ruptured tendon, Tendonitis can almost always be cured without surgery.

Left untreated, tendonitis can be extremely debilitating and lead to life long complications.

Continually using your Tendon while it is injured will lead to a worse injury.

To Heal as fast as possible use conservative treatment options at home such as:

Use an Ice Pack to Get Swelling Down
Use a Deep Heat Therapy at Home Once Swelling is Down
Treat the Injury Well Beyond the Point When the Pain Disappears

Ice vs Heat for Treating Tendon Pain

What's Better to Treat Your Tendon Pain - Ice or Heat?
Use ice and heat to deal with your strained tendon.

When dealing with tendon pain it's hard to know what treatment will work best for you. You might be wondering if ice and heat will work for you. Or maybe even which will work better - ice OR heat.

Icing and heating are 2 of the most natural treatment options available. Compared to medications, surgery and other treatment methods - icing and heating have been around for centuries and have always been used for soft tissue (muscles, tendons) injury treatments as a means to soothe and heal.

We understand that it can get pretty confusing to figure out what conservative treatment method will work best with all of the treatment options available to you today. To get started, you should think about the benefits you'll get from using these therapies.

What's Better to Treat Your Tendon Injury: Ice or Heat?

Ice and heat are the best treatment combination for you if:

What's better for your tendon injury? Ice or heat?
  • You're looking to heal your tendon quickly and want to boost the natural power of pain relief and healing in your body.
  • You want to minimize the cost of injections, medications, hospital visits or surgery.
  • You want to minimize the time needed for long-term healing (and get back to work quickly)
  • You want to reduce the chance of re-injuring your tendon.
  • You want to reduce the chance of secondary injuries that long term (chronic) tendonitis can bring.
  • You want to control your own treatment and healing at home, on your own time.
  • You're looking for a tried, tested, and true method of healing that's been used for centuries and has worked for countless other tendonitis pain sufferers.

Combining cold and warmth is a simple yet effective way to get immediate pain relief and promote long-term healing. In your lifetime you've probably had your mom, family doctor, nurse, surgeon or physical therapist tell you to use ice right after you're injured and something warm from time to time once the swelling's gone down. It's a simple yet very effective way to relieve pain and promote healing in your injured tendon.

Tendon injuries can happen to anyone, and right now there are thousands of doctors and physical therapists dealing with patients that require a solution to treat their injured tendon fast... and heal it (where possible).

If you want to be proactive about properly dealing with your tendon pain, speak to your doctor about adding conservative temperature treatments to your home recovery with AidYourTendon's system using a Cold Compress or Ice Pack, MendMeShop Arnica Pain Cream, and Blood Circulation Boost via the T•Shellz Wrap®.

These tools will help you achieve long-term healing results while aiding in the prevention of re-injury and secondary injuries.

Superior Technology

When It Comes to Soft Tissue Injury Treatment, a T•Shellz Wrap® is Superior to Heat; so instead of talking about heat, lets talk about the T•Shellz Wrap®

Use a T•Shellz Wrap®, NOT Heat

The idea of using heat was to try and get your body to circulate more blood into your injured tendon and surrounding soft tissue. The problem is that most heat doesn't get down below the sub-dermal skin layer - as such it is largely ineffective. This is why our Blood Circulation Boost wraps are superior to heat. Each Blood Circulation Boost Wrap emits a uniform wave of healing electromagnetic energy over the entire treatment area. This energy travels deep inside the soft tissue in your joint where it is absorbed. Once this energy is absorbed, some of the energy is converted to heat, whereby the body responds to this heat by increasing blood flow in the treatment area to dissipate this heat. It is just the same as a heat application was intended to do - only the T•Shellz Wrap® does it better. The electromagnetic energy is CRUCIAL to the healing process as this how heat is generated in deep tissue - exactly where you need it.

how blood circulation heals muscle strain

Electromagnetic energy waves (EMR) are not Heat Waves. When they are emitted from the T•Shellz Wrap® they penetrate right through your skin and fat layers until they get to denser soft tissue such as your ligaments, muscles, and tendons. EMR waves are absorbed by this dense soft tissue and this absorption of energy results in increased bloodflow .... that's Enhanced Healing Power (EHP) -right at the location of the injury.

The use of ElectroMagnetic Energy is the only way that will provide the Blood Circulation Boost effect deep in the body where it is needed. The TShellz Wrap is a flexible, therapeutic wrap that can significantly increase bloodflow at the source of your injury! The Deep Tissue Repair process is something you will find nowhere else.

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

Using heat when the energy is only pushing into the top layers of the skin won't give you deep tissue healing. In this case, the blood is actually rushing AWAY from your tendon (and other deep tissue) to the surface of your skin - exactly the opposite of what we want.

If you try and heat deep tissue from the surface, you will find that little, if any, heat will reach there. The skin and fat layer below the skin are very efficient insulators - they protect extreme temperatures from penetrating. There's even a condition for overuse of a skin-level heat source called toasted skin syndrome, hot water bottle rash, fire stains, laptop thigh, or granny's tartan.

Note: If you have an Acute (recent, inflamed) Soft Tissue Injury, Do Not Use Heat.

Your doctor knows that the sooner cold is applied, the quicker you can reduce inflammation and achieve real pain relief. This will help reduce the chance of a much longer lasting chronic injury. Heat and inflammation are a bad mix and should not be used together. Heat is good at the spa - it will help your body relax, but when it comes to a swollen injury it is not a good idea.

When To Use Cold:

A Cold Compress or Ice Pack work best to relieve pain, swelling and inflammation for new injuries, re-injury and during immediate post surgery recovery. Cold therapy should also be used during the first 24 - 72 hours of treatment, combined with resting your injury.

  • 24 to 72 hours after your initial injury or when you first notice pain and swelling to stop cellular 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 swelling in your tendon or nearby muscles have flared up (probably due to activity).
  • Anytime you have swelling, sharp throbbing pain or inflammation.
  • Any other situation where you need to draw the pain and inflammation out of your tendon and surrounding tissue.

When to use a TShellz Wrap (HEAT):

  • When the swelling (and associated pain due to swelling) has been reduced.(usually after applying cold compression 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 joint ligaments & tendons and decrease chance of re-injury.
  • AFTER surgery (once the skin wound has healed over) to accelerate the post-surgery recovery process and minimize scar tissue growth at the surgery location.
  • Anytime you feel your tendon may have stiffened up, is tight and your mobility is reduced causing you more pain.
  • Anytime BEFORE you feel you might undertake activity that will put significant strain on the injury area.
  • Any other situation where you need to increase blood flow to your injury to relax soft tissue in your joint, relieve trigger point pain / spasms, prevent re-injury and enhance flexibility of soft tissue.

Here Are A Couple Of Examples For When To Use Cold (Ice) Or Heat:

You have a achilles tendonitis injury that's been on-going for quite some time.

You're having a "good day" (your injury is feeling fine) and decide to head out for some grocery shopping. You realize afterwards that was a bad idea because you are experiencing more pain in the back of your heel at the point of insertion.

You have aggravated the injury so you should use COLD on your achilles to stop further damage to your tendon and help ease the pain. Consider adding a deep heat treatment later on in the injury cycle once the swelling (and much of the pain) is gone.


You have a painful case of tendonitis in your shoulder.

You're in the kitchen making a cup of tea and reach in your cupboard to get a mug. You forgot about your injury because it's no longer hurting, but oops... Reaching for that mug just reminded you about your shoulder injury with a sharp pain / twinge. You stop and ask someone else to retrieve the mug for you (you stopped the activity that will cause more inflammation).

The pain was temporary and if there is no inflammation, NO cold compression is needed.. In this case heat (via the Shoulder TShellz Wrap) should be used to encourage healing of your tendon injury instead.


Use cold after any sort of activity causes you on-going pain.

When Should You Use Heat to Heal Your Tendon Injury?

Knee TShellz Wrap for Knee Tendonitis

Deep Heat temperature treatments work best to increase blood flow circulation and stimulate healing for soft tissue injuries, re-injuries, and during long-term post surgery recovery - once inflammation has been reduced.

Blood Circulation Boost should not be used directly after an injury, as you must wait for swelling to drop. Blood Circulation Boost treatments should not be started for a least 2 weeks after surgery because inflammation levels will be very high as the healing process starts over again. Any use of Blood Circulation Boost should also be combined with gradual movement to stretch out your joint and increase range of motion.

If you have a chronic tendon injury that won't seem to go away, you should use heat before activity to loosen up soft tissue in the joint (making it more flexible). This treatment is shown to increase the elasticity (flexibility) of the soft tissue in and around the treatment area; further to this, heat will also lengthen soft tissue. The benefits of increased length and flexibility of soft tissue mean it will be more pliable for activity and less likely to re-injure (important).

Sometimes we feel pain while doing a certain activity - should you still use a deep heat treatment (TShellz Wrap)? Applying a heat treatment in the morning before you start your day or before activity can help to boost blood-flow and reduce risk of further strain or injury. Use cold part-way through your day after you have been active so you can decrease pain and inflammation from the flare up.

The application of deep heat via the T•Shellz Wrap® is a good long-term plan as you will find it to be a highly beneficial tool for soft tissue injuries - both in the recovery process as well as for long term re-injury prevention healing. It can also be used on a preventive basis to relax constricted soft tissue. Blood Circulation Boost enhances the local blood circulatory system, increasing the flow of nutrients your tissue needs to heal - oxygen, nutrients, anti-bodies and energy.

What Makes the TShellz Wrap Different?

ElectroMagnetic Energy Increases Flow of Blood

The TShellz Wrap is a wholesome healer!

Instead of having the heat energy force itself into your body by heating up the skin first, the TShellz Wrap emits an electromagnetic energy (EMR) that penetrates deep into your tissue creating the heat right down in your injured tissue. This means that instead of trying to heat from the outside in, you're using another method to to get the energy straight inside; EMR energy passes right through the skin and is absorbed by deep dense tissue - exactly where it is needed.

The only way to get Blood Circulation Boost is through use of a TShellz Wrap. The TShellz Wrap is the only treatment method available for use at home that improves blood flow and circulation on a deep tissue level. As we mentioned before, other methods (like hot water bottles, hot baths, etc) will only ever increase blood flow on a surface / skin level. These methods need a LOT of time to even reach your deep tissue. And even if you were to use them this long, your skin would heat up to an uncomfortable level and you might even get burned!

What exactly has changed the way heat therapy works? With modern medical advancements, electromagnetic energy is used to generate deep tissue heat for healing with Blood Circulation Boost (Blood Circulation Boost).

With regular use of the TShellz Wrap:

  • Your pain will be reduced.
  • Your damaged soft tissue will heal at an accelerated rate while reducing your risk of re-injury.
  • Your injured joint will have a larger 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)

How to Use Ice and Heat to Relieve & Treat Your Tendon

Is heat better for treating tendonitis

When it comes to using ice and heat for treating tendonitis, it's important to keep in mind that both ice AND heat are very effective ways to relieve pain and heal. Most people will think one is better over the other from their own experience or what a doctor / physical therapist has previously told them.

The only difference between using ice and heat is that 1 is better for you at a specific time in your healing cycle. Ice is used first, right when you get your injury, to decrease pain / swelling and inflammation. Once swelling has reduced, we then focus on heat based treatments to increase blood flow circulation in deep tissue which will stimulate the body's healing response.

Is ice better for treating tendonitis pain?

Each temperature therapy has its own unique benefits and when used together they provide a powerful advantage to long-term healing. You may already know that ice or heat feels better on your injured tendon, and this could influence your decision too.

The bottom line is that ice and heat are exceptional, natural, pain relievers and healers for your tendonitis.

There are cases where some tendon injuries will respond better to 1 temperature over the other. We want to help clear up the confusion so you know which is better (icy cold or gentle heat) and how to get the most from your treatment at home.

Part 1: Cold
Ice / Cold as Pain Relief for Your Tendon Injury

Cold should be used for new injuries or right after re-injury.

COLD (ice) is used to treat injuries or conditions that are red, hot, inflamed, swollen and suffering from tissue damage (a tear or recovering from surgery). Cold therapy is a natural / organic pain reliever that numbs pain right at the source of your injury. While doing this the cold also stops cellular break-down and reduces the amount of scar tissue forming (this is very important after surgery).

When cold is applied to a tendon injury, all of the soft tissue in the treatment area will squeeze on the veins to slow down blood flow. This in turn clamps down on the amount of fluid leaking into your injured tissue, decreasing your swelling. This is why cold is used immediately to treat newer soft tissue injuries or re-injuries. The cold slows down your body to stop the amount of damage happening to your tissue and decrease your swelling. This cold also has a nice side benefit of numbing the nerves in and around your hamstring thereby decreasing your pain.

In the medical world this is something called 'Vasoconstriction'.

Cold can Make Your Tendon Injury Worse - How?

Applying cold can restrict blood flow and stiffen / tighten soft tissue. Cold is NOT a good treatment method for your tendon when the tissue is already tight and constricted, because the cold will just stiffen the tissue further and increase strain during movement. This is especially true if you're suffering from any cramping or spasming in the affected joint. Cold applied in areas of muscle cramps or spasms will only make the muscle cramp or spasm even more, again putting more pressure on your injured tendon and increasing the pain.

If you feel you have constricted or tight muscles/tendons and there is little to no swelling, you should use a deep heat therapy that will increase blood flow - like Leg T•Shellz Wrap® (Blood Circulation Boost). Increasing blood flow at this time will help to relieve any tightness, cramping or spasms. A T•Shellz Wrap® treatment, when used at this time, will help relax / elongate your muscles and tendons making them much more pliable for activity and resistant to re-injury.


When To Use a Cold Compress or Ice Pack to Treat Your Tendonitis

Cold works best to relieve pain, swelling and inflammation for new injuries, re-injury and during immediate post surgery recovery. Cold therapy should also be used during the first 24 - 72 hours of treatment, combined with resting your injury.

If you've been suffering for some time with a chronic tendon injury you should only use cold after activity causes you more pain or triggers more inflammatory response symptoms (red, hot, inflamed, swollen). This would be when your the area around your tendon starts to hurt at the end of the day after you've been active or performing tasks that have put friction or stress on your injured tendon. When used at this time, cold compression becomes a natural / organic pain reliever, treating the site where you feel the pain.

Sometimes we feel pain while doing a certain activity - should you still use cold? Too much cold therapy can reduce your ability to heal correctly, because cold is a short term pain reliever not a deep tissue healer.

Cold Therapy slows nerve and cell function - reducing swelling that blocks blood vessels from doing their job.


This is important because once blood vessels are blocked or damaged, they can no longer carry oxygenated blood through the tissue and tissue cells begin to break-down. Without cold compression therapy cellular break-down and tissue damage continue as cells don't get the oxygen they need to survive. By limiting the amount of damage done to your tendon, you also limit the amount of healing that needs to occur. This is a very important step to heal soft tissue injuries faster and with less pain!

Part 2: Heat
Heat for Tendon Recovery

Cold should be used for new injuries or right after re-injury.

HEAT (warmth) is used after you've reduced your swelling / inflammation and the sharp pain is less intense (you have more of a dull / nagging ache and stiffness / tightness). Warming up your muscles and tendons is a natural way to encourage healing while helping reduce re-injury risk. Increasing the temperature of your deep tissue will result in increased blood flow circulation as the body responds to heat by increasing blood flow. It's the blood in your body that will bring oxygen, nutrients, antibodies and energy to your injured tendon to help with healing.

When heat is applied to a tendon injury, your veins will expand, allowing more blood flow through; this in turn relaxes your soft tissue, making it more flexible and elastic. This is why heat is used on older (chronic) injuries and spasms / cramps - to loosen tissue and bring in the blood flow needed for healing. Your body will try to heal itself after experiencing a soft tissue injury; increasing your blood flow through heat will actually speed up this natural process.

Doctors usually call this process 'Vasodilation'.

Heat can Make Inflammation, Swelling and Newer Injuries Worse - How?

When we injure ourselves, we start healing right away. The body will naturally raise the temperature at the site of the injury resulting in the inflammatory response (redness, heat sensation, inflammation and swelling). This 'fake fever' leaks blood flow to the area to cool it down and start the healing process.

Adding 'heat' to your injury when it's already inflamed and tender may make your body think there's a new threat to your tissue and increase the pain in order to get you to stop. For some people applying heat on inflamed / swollen tissue will cause the injury to swell-up even more (as much as 3 times larger than normal). You'll feel even more pain as the pressure builds on top of your injury.

Heat is NOT a good treatment method for inflamed injuries, new injuries (within the first 24 to 72 hours), right after surgery or right after a re-injury. In these cases, heat should be applied later on in the healing cycle. In the meantime, use a Cold Compress or Ice Pack to decrease swelling and inflammation induced pain.


Another Tendonitis Example:
When To Use Cold (Ice) Or Heat:

After spending 3 years as a hardwood floor installer, you are having difficulty.

Over the last couple months you have noticed that your knees are getting harder to bend. It is even starting to affect your ability to walk. After seeing your physician, she has informed you that you have contracted patellar tendonitis, commonly known as "jumper's knee". It is not infected (septic) and you have been told to take some time off to rest and heal up the tendon before it gets worse.

You have switched jobs until the problem goes away (stopped the cause of the problem). Use a Cold Compress or Ice Pack as a natural pain-reliever and for inflammation reduction. The cold compression will also decrease the amount of damage being done to the knee.

Once pain and inflammation have reduced significantly, use the Knee TShellz Wrap to continue the healing process and help reduce the risk of worsening the re-injury.


Keep using T•Shellz Wrap® treatments before activity and when you notice stiffness to 'warm up' your tissue and stimulate healing.

How to Use Consistent Deep Tissue Stretching for Improved Tissue Flexibility & Health

After your tendon is warmed up your physical therapist will guide you through stretches to improve mobility.

For many people, the treatment won't just end there. Stretching is also an important part of of deep healing - and it's the final step needed when healing your injury with conservative treatment methods.

You would be surprised by how many people there are that don't understand the importance of stretching when recovering from a tendon injury. Before returning to full activity after tendonitis, physical therapists prescribe gentle stretching of the affected area... This is because stretching is a major component of healing soft tissue. Consistent stretching is one of the only solutions available to break up scar tissue that forms on your tendon & muscles as it heals.

Stretching soft tissue after a recent treatment with the TShellz Wrap is the best way to gain the stretching you need for recovery while minimizing the risk of re-injury. This is due to the effect that deep heat has on soft tissue - it elongates and increases flexibility of soft tissue which is exactly what you want when you are stretching.


There is a Unique Formula used for Recovery from Tendonitis...

We're going to let you in on a key piece of information... In every physical therapy appointment your physical therapist will use conservative treatments, massage, manual manipulation and/or stretching exercises to give you this Professional 3-Step Treatment Formula:

Step 1 - Warm Up Your Injury Site

golfer warming up shoulder tendon

For this 1st step many physical therapists will use heat, manual manipulation, deep tissue massage, clinical ultrasound devices or a warm bath to warm up your injury site. The goal during this first step is to increase healthy blood flow circulation and relax your affected tissue.

'Warming up' your injury will increase the elastic-nature of your tissue fibers making it much easier to stretch and when needed, hold the stretch. This will also extend the amount that you will be able to stretch your injury site.

Warm it Up At Home

Use a T•Shellz Wrap® for 15 minutes at least half an hour before stretching your injury. A TShellz Wrap will will induce heat deep down in your soft tissue - a therapy that will indirectly increase blood flow in the treatment area while simultaneously warming up and relaxing your injured tissue. Blood Circulation Boost will make your tendon fibers more elastic and pliable, reducing stress and thus reducing your risk of experiencing a new strain . This will allow for pain reduction and ease of movement when you're stretching and/or exercising.

Continued daily treatment with Blood Circulation Boost will also deliver much-needed oxygen, nutrients, antibodies and energy to your tendon and surrounding soft tissue. This will boost your body's own natural healing ability and speed up your time for recovery.

Step 2 - Stretch Your Injury

After your tissue is warmed up your physical therapist will guide you through stretches to improve mobility.

The main goal of physical therapy is to exercise (stretch out) the affected area to improve flexibility and range of motion. After the physical therapist has warmed up your injury site, they'll get you to do a series of exercises that are focused on stretching out your tissue.

These exercises will be focused on "unfreezing" the joint and force soft tissue to both strengthen and become more elastic.

Sometimes cardiovascular exercise, like using a stationary bike or treadmill, will be recommended under the supervision of your physical therapist.

tendinitis scar tissue formation

Why are tendon injuries so hard to over come? In two words - scar tissue.

Tendon and muscle tissue is meant to be soft and flexible, ready to work, and move extreme forces in everyday activities. Damaged soft tissue will heal with scar tissue - little tiny band-aids that overlap each other to bind damaged soft tissue together. With the added scar tissue the tendon becomes more rigid, less able to stretch as much as it did before. If you're suffering with scar tissue now you may feel the effects with stiffness, tightness, weakness and tiredness at the location of the tendon injury site.

Scar tissue can form fast to bring together the edges of a tissue 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) tissue would. Scar tissue fibers will lay down over top of your tear in a cluttered, messy and jumbled up way. Most important of all - scar tissue is very inelastic, meaning that scar tissue will seize you up.

Imagine throwing a bunch of drinking straws in the air... When those straws hit the ground they'll land in a random, unorganized way. It even seems silly to think that those straws could land perfectly straight and all in the same direction. Stretching helps to organize the scar tissue, increasing the strength of this tissue so it's more like the weave of a basket.

Step 3 - Cool Down Your Tendon Injury

Toward the end of your appointment your physical therapist may introduce cold therapy, acupuncture, or TENS to relax your tissue after the intense stretching and exercise.

Use a Cold Compress or Ice Pack after stretches and exercise - or really whenever you feel deep tissue tendon pain. This will help prevent full-blown inflammation from returning after your stretching regimen.

Our Tendon Therapy Formula is Proven to Work!

It may seem hard to believe, but our T•Shellz Wraps® home therapy devices & accessory products will assist you in recovering from your injury by reducing your swelling and inflammation induced pain, maximizing blood flow where it's needed most, and increasing the flexibility / range of motion of your tendon with consistent stretching.

Tendon Injury Facts:

When the tendon gets inflamed it is known as tendonitis, and when the tendons are chronically overused, it may lead to microscopic tears in the collagen matrix and causes a gradual weakening of the tissues.

Achilles tendonitis is a common injury among runners, as the Achilles tendon is responsible for helping you lift off the ground with each stride.

As computers become ever more important elements of the work place and everyday life, incidents of wrist tendonitis are on the rise.

Oral Medications can mask the pain but do not aid in the healing of tendonitis. Anti-inflammatories and pain killers can mask the pain and indirectly cause tendonitis to worsen.

Ice and Compression treatments are the easiest and most effective treatments for tendonitis.
