Your body can heal itself! In fact, your body started healing itself the moment your rotator cuff injury started, and it's the blood in your body that makes it all happen.
Your blood is the transport mechanism for everything that is good inside you. It carries oxygen, nutrients, water and antibodies.
Proper blood flow to your shoulder is essential for complete healing. When you have reduced muscle mobility (as is the case with a serious rotator cuff (or any soft tissue shoulder injury), you stop moving and the swelling sets in. This means that your vital blood flow is reduced to a trickle.
Swelling, inflammation and lack of joint movement reduce the flow of blood to your injury. If you are moving your injured muscle around you run a risk of increasing the severity of the injury via muscle strain. If there has been some healing, you could re-injure the muscle tissue all over again.
Blood Flow - the natural healing process in your body - needs assistance for such injuries because blood flow is greatly restricted when you are immobile. When treating a rotator cuff injury or really any type of shoulder soft tissue injury (ie. capsulitis, impingement, shoulder separation recovery), an effective therapy will increase blood flow to the injury while the joint is immobile. This increase in blood flow will accelerate the body's own ability to heal itself.
There are a LOT of people out there that do not understand how effective A TShellz Wrap really is. Once initial swelling from the injury has reduced by using a Cold Compress or Ice Pack - this is where the Deep Heat effect from a Shoulder T•Shellz Wrap® really starts to shine!
Swelling and inflammation is your body responding to an injury. A lot of pain will probably disappear as the swelling disappears, and many people think that the injury's gone as soon as the pain is gone. Once you have reduced the swelling with cold compression, your injury is still there.
This is a critical time! After the inflammation is gone it may feel like you can return to your regular sports, hobbies, exercise or other activities - but your shoulder is in a weakened state, unstable, and prone to re-injury. Even the slightest arm movement or twist in the wrong direction can worsen the injury and increase the swelling yet again. Most "weekend warriors" and amateur athletes will start going back to what they were doing before they injured themselves, and that's where they get it wrong. Medical professionals know that the injury is still there even if the pain is gone.
Building strong healthy tissue is part of the healing process and needs to be dealt with first! You can help your tissue during this healing process by increasing your blood flow with a Shoulder T•Shellz Wrap®.
With regular use of the TShellz Wrap:

No matter what has caused your rotator cuff injury, it's important to reduce pain, swelling and inflammation as soon as possible. Getting rid of your swelling is the 1st, most important, step in your recovery process. Getting rid of swelling will reduce the amount of tissue damage happening to your shoulder and open up the blood vessels in your soft tissue so your joint can receive more blood flow.
Increasing blood flow is then a priority to bring in all the essential elements needed for natural healing within your own body. You blood flow is the key to speeding up the healing process of your shoulder tendinitis, increasing your range of motion, and ensuring that you won't suffer from this painful condition for years.
As we have mentioned above, blood flow is the critical delivery system of oxygen and nutrients that your body requires, and this is especially true when it comes to healing. This becomes a problem when there is an injury, as blood flow is usually restricted significantly. It is important to recognize that recovery speed from a soft tissue injury (tendon,muscle,ligament) is dependent on blood flow circulation. If you want better blood flow circulation, get rid of the inflammation first then apply the Deep Tissue Therapy treatments directly over the injury area as outlined in the instructions. For most injuries, we recommend 3 to 4 Deep Tissue Therapy treatments per day.
Since the Deep Tissue Therapy devices are circulatory system enhancers, Deep Tissue Therapy treatments should not be applied until the inflammation and pain are gone from the affected area. This is because you want to restrict blood vessels when you have pain and swelling and which is why we recommend usage of a Cold Compress to get the pain and swelling down from the area fast. Only then should the TShellz Wrap be applied.
Health is general term, but most of you would say that athletes are more healthy than the average person. Why is this? Probably because an athlete undergoes much more physical activity and because of this, they have more healthy soft tissue. As you exercise muscles in your body, they increase in size and strength; they also require more bloodflow. The circulatory system is also "exercised" during physical activity, and it benefits from this as well by becoming stronger and delivering more bloodflow throughout the body. The more physical activity you undergo, the stronger your circulatory system becomes, delivering more oxygen and nutrients to your body in a more efficient manner.
You might also notice that athletes usually heal more quickly from soft tissue injuries than non-athletes. This is a prime example of how better blood flow circulation will have an impact on healing time. The circulation system of athletes bring a healing advantage that can be quite considerable. The TShellz Wrap is how you can literally gain that bloodflow advantage that only athletes usually have - just around the treatment area rather than through the whole body.
When you are physically active you probably notice that your blood is pumping harder. Your heart is increasing blood flow to deliver more oxygen to starved muscles, as well as take away waste materials (metabolic byproducts such as lactic acid) so they don't start collecting in your soft tissue. If your blood flow cannot keep up with your activity, your muscles tire and waste materials will build up, causing temporary weakness and soreness in the overused muscle groups. It is a very practical example of why blood flow is important; the best athletes generally have the best and most efficient circulatory system. They can keep going (ie. riding a bicycle up a mountain in the Tour De France) when others simply cannot.
The increased flow of blood from a TShellz Wrap treatment is much the same as would be gained from physical activity, only it occurs in the localized treatment area rather than the whole body. Electro-Magnetic Energy from the TShellz Wrap is absorbed at the injury area, inducing blood flow exactly where you need it most.
The great advantage of Deep Tissue Therapy treatments is that you are increasing your healing rate via enhanced bloodflow without the physical activity that can and does often lead to re-injury. TShellz Wraps allow to heal quickly while reducing your chance of re-injury.
You were playing football with some friends over the weekend, fell and landed funny -- dislocating your shoulder. The shoulder has been popped back into the joint, but you are experiencing pain and cannot sleep.
The connective tissues have been heavily strained due to the disclocation, so use a Side Shoulder Cold Compress to get the swelling down. A lot of the pain may disappear with the swelling.
Once swelling has diminished, you need to work on the range of motion in your shoulder and work out any scar tissue that may be in your connective tissue.
A T•Shellz Wrap® should be used on the shoulder, as this treatment will increase elasticity and flexibility of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and surrounding soft tissue. This treatment should happen multiple times per day and over a couple months will decrease your chance of re-injury, increase your ROM and get your shoulder back close to the condition it was before the injury.
You had a partial rotator cuff tear 2 years ago but that injury has healed and you have no longer felt any pain from that injury for over a year.
You just went to a new fitness / aerobics class and notice your shoulder feels stiff the day after your first class. There's no pain, inflammation or swelling, just some stiffness / soreness where your old injury was.
In this case, we would recommend a T•Shellz Wrap® on your shoulder before your next work out to loosen up the shoulder, increase elasticity and flexibility of your shoulder tendons, muscles and ligaments. Continue treatments until this problem disappears. the T•Shellz Wrap® can be used multiple times per day if you notice residual stiffness. If stiffness remains, continue to use the T•Shellz Wrap® to make sure your old injury doesn't come back.
If swelling starts up, calm down the swelling with a Cold Compress or Ice Pack after the workouts.. so basically, Deep Tissue Therapy before activity, a Cold Compress or Ice Pack after the activity if it caused swelling.
If you want to heal quickly, you need to keep your blood moving and that's where Deep Tissue Regeneration Therapy(DTR Therapy), comes in.
What is DTR Therapy? It's a substantial increase in the flow of blood to your injured muscles, tendons, and ligaments without the need to exercise your already damaged shoulder.
Have you seen what happens when you add water to a flower wilted from drought? In essence, an injured shoulder is much like a "wilted" flower; your body wants to heal its injury, but needs lots of nutrients to do it. Blood brings new life to your cells by delivering healing nutrients and oxygen that are vital to your tissue. In addition, the blood carries away toxins and cellular waste cleaning the area and healing it faster. Without a good supply of blood, your injury simply won't heal properly.
In order to get maximum blood flow to your rotator cuff, you need to help your body stimulate blood flow. DTR Therapy is the fast, easy and pain-free way to increase blood flow and speed healing. It's the key to dealing with your injured tissue properly.
When you apply a Shoulder TShellz Wrap to your rotator cuff, you'll receive immediate healing benefits and provide increased blood flow to your damaged tissue. During a treatment, and for quite some time after you finish, the treated area will experience increased blood flow even though your body is at rest. It's a soothing sensation and extremely effective.
During a treatment, and for quite some time after you finish, your injured tendons, ligaments, bursae and muscles will experience increased blood flow even though your body is at rest. It's a soothing sensation and extremely effective.
With DTR Therapy your shoulder injury is constantly being fed with healing, nutritious, oxygen and energy filled blood. That's exactly what your body needs to heal.
A Shoulder TShellz Wrap is purely a DTR Therapy workhorse! It's why we made them. They have been specifically designed for the treatment of deep, soft tissue and joint problems such as tendinitis of the rotator cuff, bursitis, adhesive capsulitis and many more soft tissue injuries.
T•Shellz Wraps contain an Energy Pad which is flexible and shaped specifically to conform to around your upper arm and shoulder. The Energy Pad emits a uniform wave of healing electromagnetic energy over the entire treatment area. This energy travels down deep inside your muscle, cartilage and tendons/ligaments - into the underlying tissue surrounding your shoulder joint; stimulating the blood flow needed to heal your injury. It's the electromagnetic energy that's crucial to the healing process.
The unit plugs into a wall outlet to get its power. It has a special signal controller which can be set for 3 different power levels of application (3=High, 2=Medium, 1=Low). The cord is long enough that you can sit or lie comfortably and watch TV, read or surf the net while you're using it.
Electromagnetic energy waves aren't Heat Waves. When they're emitted from the TShellz Wrap they penetrate right through your skin and fat layers until they get deep down into the soft tissue surrounding your shoulder joint. After the electromagnetic energy is absorbed by your tissue it transforms into Deep Tissue Regeneration Therapy. That's Healing Power - Right at the Source of your Injury!
The TShellz Wrap significantly increases bloodflow at the source your rotator cuff - period.
With regular use of a Shoulder TShellz Wrap:
We field a lot of calls from our customers that want to know why our T•Shellz Wraps don't come with a battery powered option. The simple answer is that our T•Shellz Wraps use a lot of power. We tried looking at batteries, but we found that a high capacity (and high cost) lithium-ion battery would last barely long enough for an adequate treatment time - and then it would need to be recharged. The amount of power that our wrap uses over such a short span of time should really drive home the fact that our T•Shellz Wraps are real, industrial strength treatment devices; currently, for us to provide a battery option for our wraps we would have to reduce the level of electromagnetic energy (ie. treatment power) emitted from this product. The lower the energy output, the less effective the device will be which is why our TShellz Wrap units are plug-in units only.
When treating a shoulder with hot and cold treatments there are a couple of points to consider. Take breaks between ice pack treatments to ensure you do not freeze your skin - this rarely happens but it is important to look out for. As for heat, regular heat waves are only absorbed into the top layer of skin providing little to no effect to healing internally - this is why the ElectroMagnetic energy that is found in the T•Shellz Wrap® wrap is far superior - it delivers the heat down deep, where it is needed.
To heal fast we need the right temperature at the right time. Combined therapy using ice packs to minimize swelling (at onset of injury or during flare ups) and T•Shellz Wraps will give you the greatest chance for a complete recovery.
Do you have a rotator cuff tendon or muscle tear, a sprained shoulder, bursitis in your shoulder, frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis), a SLAP tear, or any other shoulder injury that's painful, sore and always seems to get re-injured? This could be a sign that there is scar tissue in there wreaking havoc. The growth of scar tissue is ultimately what causes stiffening in your arm and shoulder, restricting movement and flexibility.
During the healing process your body will fill in tears in your ligaments, tendons (supraspinatus, infraspinatus,subscapularis,teres minor) or bursae (subacromial, semitendinous/subscapularis) with dense, brittle tissue called "scar tissue".
Your body uses scar tissue as a quick repair solution for soft tissue strains and tears, and it will build scar tissue as fast as possible to heal a strain or tear.
Scar tissue is one of the MAIN reasons why your shoulder injury just hasn't healed. Even when the inflammation is gone, scar tissue will still be there to wreak havoc on your shoulder movement and range of motion. On-going issues with scar tissue can even result in a rotator cuff tear, a full rotator cuff tendon rupture, frozen shoulder, or some other shoulder injury.
Scar tissue will form fast to deal with a strain or tear to one of your tendons, or one of the ligaments in your shoulder, but working fast doesn't mean that the job's done right. When scar tissue forms it doesn't come together as neatly as regular (healthy) tissue would. Scar tissue fibers will lay down over top of your tear in a cluttered, messy and jumbled up way.
This is how scar tissue works. The scar tissue that forms to fix your tear will be unorganized and won't line up properly with the healthy tissue surrounding the injury site. This scar tissue will also attach to everything in that area, including the surrounding healthy tissue as well. This can result in a long-term fusing together of the soft tissue in your shoulder that stiffens your joint reducing your mobility and making your injury even more painful!
Scar tissue is a major problem especially when it comes to rotator cuff injury - causing your injury to take months or even YEARS to completely heal!
Treating yourself with a Shoulder TShellz Wrap is the easiest and most effective way to accelerate your recovery and reduce the growth of stubborn scar tissue.
We are constantly being asked, is it like a heating pad, is it like infra-red, is it like ultrasound, does it use a magnet? The truth is that the wraps are what we believe to be the most highly effective Deep Tissue Regeneration Therapy products out there, directing electromagnetic energy (EMEnergy) to the treatment site. The application of EMEnergy has a direct effect of 1) boosting blood circulation and 2) releasing heat energy deep within injured soft tissue.
It is a product that has been developed specifically to heal soft tissue in this fashion. IT WORKS unbelievably well! You can be certain of this, as we give full refunds if this is not the case.
While you're treating your rotator cuff with a TShellz Wrap, the increase in blood flow will also whisk away inflammation.
The Energy Pad stimulates all the tissue beneath it evenly. The parts of your body that are healthy will rapidly respond with increased blood flow and there will be little sensation in that area.
As your body continues to heal from treatment to treatment you'll also notice a decrease in pain and your shoulder's range of motion will improve. So not only do you heal, but with every treatment you can feel the difference - you can tell your injury is getting better.
When applied before activity or work, the Shoulder TShellz Wrap will also relax and lengthen your soft tissue to help improve your range of motion and prevent atrophy (wasting away) of the tendons and ligaments in your shoulder and arm.
Overall, continued treatment with the Shoulder TShellz Wrap will maintain good health in your shoulder and significantly reduce your risk of re-injury.
It may seem hard to believe, but regardless of what type of shoulder injury you have our Shoulder TShellz Wrap will assist you in recovering from your injury faster and reduce the chance of degenerative conditions by maximizing blood flow where it's needed most, preventing further damage, and dealing with scar tissue.

Not only do professional atheletes use ElectroMagnetic Therapy Treatments, but professional doctors do too! In fact, we have had great feedback from NFL pros, professional Hollywood stuntmen, Workout Instructors, many professional Trainers both in North America and Europe, long distance professional runners and the list just keeps going on...
If you have injured soft tissue in your shoulder that you want to heal quickly, harness the power of your own body to heal itself and boost blood flow in the shoulder. This brings more nutrients and oxygen to the injured soft tissue, accelerating the body's own healing biomechanism.
With a TShellz Wrap you help your body heal without medications - you heal your body organically.
For Post-Surgery Recovery, cold is recommended by doctors to treat your pain in a natural, non-addictive way and to reduce swelling.
After the incision site has healed, use our TShellz Wraps to achieve a fast healing rate via Deep Tissue Regeneration Therapy. Using the TShellz Wrap as soon as pain & swelling has reduced following your surgery will minimize scar tissue growth in your shoulder that will form as you heal. Treating scar tissue is the most important step following surgery, especially in a joint as scar tissue growth will impact range of motion in the joint.
Leaving post-surgery scar tissue untreated can lead to stiffness, chronic pain, osteoarthritis or other chronic conditions. You're more likely to end up with another shoulder injury if you choose not to treat the scar tissue that develops in your shoulder. DTR Therapy encourages more oxygen and nutrients to flow to the area to speed healing and improve the strength of the soft tissue in your joint.
The Shoulder T•Shellz Wrap® is designed to treat top, front and back portions of the shoulder - basically the whole shoulder. Our Shoulder T•Shellz Wraps are universal, meaning one "Shoulder wrap" can be used to treat the left shoulder and/or the right shoulder.Our Shoulder T•Shellz Wrap® can and has been used for treatment of all soft tissue shoulder injuries. Some of these injuries, treatment areas and conditions are as follows:
Our TShellz Wraps are designed to produce a lot of ElectroMagnetic Energy, and in doing this, some surface heat on the wrap might be present. You will find the treatment comforting and relaxing and there will be no shocks, pulses or vibrations. You may feel some of the by-products of increased blood flow, and this is usually manifested through a slight tingling or a warming sensation. The more treatments you do, the more this will lessen, and this is a good sign! It means the bloodflow in the treatment area is improving and your bloodflow is removing the heat byproduct much more efficiently.
After treating your soft tissue injury with TShellz Wraps, you will arrive at a point where there is no longer any pain and you find that you can get around much more easily without pain. This often happens after a couple days of treatments and some rest on the sofa. Be careful! This is often where trouble can start.
Since the pain is gone, you can mistakenly start thinking your injury is healed. Not knowing this, we start become active like we used to again and in so doing, interrupt the healing process and start to stress the partially injured shoulder, often re-injuring it again. We continually re-injure the rotator cuff injury through our daily activities and now this injury has become a chronic shoulder injury.
Eventually, we use the other shoulder more and more - or even use our elbow instead of our shoulder for a lengthy period of time. This is why the elbow and opposite shoulder start to hurt, and then really hurt - they are being overused now. Soon, aches and pain can become commonplace in the upper body - all as a result of the orignal shoulder injury and the body's instictive nature to "protect" the orginal rotator cuff injury.
With a chronic soft tissue injury, odds of surgery increase as do the odds of more soft tissue injuries due to overcompensation. What I'm saying is this: once you start feeling better and the pain has disappeared, your injury is still there. Depending on the type of injury and/or condition, it may take another 4 months to heal. Keep treating the area with TShellz Wraps at least twice per day as Deep Tissue Therapy will continue healing your injury.
When applied before activity or work, the TShellz Wrap will also relax and lengthen your soft tissue to help improve your range of motion and prevent atrophy of the injured shoulder. Continued treatment with a TShellz Wrap will maintain good health in the soft tissue and significantly reduce your risk of re=injury.
It's generally understood by doctors and surgeons that surgery will introduce more scar tissue. This added scar tissue will be problematic, requiring physical therapy and conservative treatment options post-surgery. If not dealt with properly, your shoulder could end up in worse condition than before the surgery! This is why surgery is only performed as a last resort.
There are some shoulder conditions where surgery is really unavoidable. Often, such surgeries will be for repairing full tears or bone spur removal. When it comes to bone spurs, you may be interested to know that there are many people with bone spurs that are not even aware they have them. It is only when there is inflammation (usually tendonitis or an impingement) that the bone spur often becomes noticeable and irritating. This is why a physician will often tell you that bone spur removal is not necessary - if you can remove the inflammation around the bone spur, then there is no longer an issue with it. In cases where surgery happens, know that the use of a Cold Compress or Ice Pack and a Shoulder T•Shellz Wrap® are excellent home treatment tools for recovery from shoulder surgery. The treatment will depend on when and where the surgery occurred. Click here to learn more about post-surgery.
Most doctors, surgeons and orthopedic specialists will recommend conservative therapy for soft tissue injuries before even considering surgery.
Some of the most effective conservative treatment methods you will find are:
We are very confident our TShellz Wraps, ebooks and accessory products will assist you in recovering from your injury by reducing swelling and inflammation induced pain, maximizing blood flow where it's needed most and increasing flexibility / range of motion in your shoulder. All these treatment options are home-based treatments that are very cost effective - especially when you start to consider the real cost of a long term debilitating injury.
