I recently injured myself playing tennis and now have a tennis calf(partially torn calf) along with a partial ruptured plantaris tendon. I was then told by a prolific ortho doc that I was non-op and to start PT after nearly 2 weeks. Coming into the third week, I wore the patches as directed and did an 8am change everyday Monday to Friday. Everyday, I was able to increase my range of motion so much so, that by the 6th day I was able to take full strides of steps again. By the next DPT appointment, he was in clear disbelief of how much progress I made. I safely and effectively reduced my recovery timeline by 2 weeks. As I’m in the middle of recovery still, I ordered a second set and will likely order again to keep the progress going. Thank you!
I injured my ilium while running a simple 5K. I was not able to put any weight on the left side where the injury happen for a good two weeks and because this is one of the regions that are hard to reach, things were slooooow. For someone who is active, this was pure torture and I decided to invest in active mend. First and foremost, it works. After five days of continuous use, and yes, you have to use continuously, the difference is tangible. I can walk , I played tennis and I even ran a little. I still have the injury so I am thinking another round of active mend but it really did work for me. Now, here is some things that can get better: the patches do not remain on hence ActiveMend sends the patches along with tape which I used after the second day as the patches were constantly peeling off. So make sure to tape them as they are supposed to remain on the spot for a 24 hour period. I injure myself frequently, that is what happens when you do sports and you are over 40 but I am glad I found this product. I also use salon pas and others but ActiveMend is indeed potent and does not have the menthol smell. Good product . Tape it!
I ran into moderate to severe knee ligament pain from over-exertion due to a 500 mile/7 day cycling fundraiser. I’m in my mid 50s and an avid cyclist but I don’t regularly stretch or condition my body as needed to maintain the rides I take which range from 10 to 70 miles. This 500 mile event took a toll on the right leg but more acutely in the knee area, and the left side.
I applied the 5 day patch regimen and noticed on Day 5 the pain and stiffness on the top of the knee was nearly gone, but the side of the knee was still sore. I started PT exercises to re-build strength, and performing various stretches daily as well. It’s not until a few days after Day 5 when I felt the left ligament finally calm down, along with the entire knee swelling reduced noticeably. There is a delayed effect for me using this preparation. That said, I am back on recovery rides of 30-40 miles with little to no elevation, and I am at 80% strength with no pain. I expect full recovery soon.
I am repeating another 5 day regimen just to help finish the knee portion of the leg. I think once it gets that dosage, I’ll be 100% (inc. exercises and strength training + recovery rides).
Product is definitely worth investigating. I’ve used various preparations and NSAIDs and none provide what seems like “healing” - they simply mask the root cause. $.02.
My elbow pain was chronic. Activmend allowed me to continue with PT and I finally got better!
ActivMend 5 - Gel Patches
These patches got me out of serious pain. Shoulder Tendonosis and impingement and neck arthritis! The relief and healing is incredible.
Soreness in shoulder from baseball pitching has been eliminated. Used as instructions advised.
Thank you Henry for your positive review! I have always thought that this would be excellent for sore pitching arms and I am thrilled that it helped you.
Wore the patches for 5 consecutive days and it was very beneficial and gave me some relief.
the patches are a life saver and very much worth it.
Takes 5 days of constant use but it relieved my tennis elbow. It’s important to use the tape over the patch for best results.
I’ve used this product twice and it really works. First time used on my shoulder and second time on my ankle. Aimee from customer service is great!! She was very sweet and helpful. Give this product a try, you will be amazed!
I work at a big tennis club and was waiting for the first injured player to give this to. James was back on the court in 5 days after suffering a calf pull. He gave me a day by day 5star review and purchased one for himself and reimbursed my order! I will be highly recommending to all members in the future! Even one of our other pros is on board as well! This will be a major help to my clients who need to be in the upstairs gym before hitting the courts! Thank you ActivMend for producing this great product!
My trainer recommended Activmend, so I took her advice. Glad I did. Relieved back pain in one day! More difficult to reach the soas area, but definitely significantly reduced pain in the area. Will do a second course with anticipated results. Buying more just to have on hand!!
Can’t believe how well this has worked on my shoulder! Yes of pain and inability gone …..
ActivMend 5 - Gel Patches
So far so good. Love the cooling feeling.
It works not only on injuries but common soreness and pain from playing sports and exercise
I worked through 2 injuries during my Half-Ironman training, and using Activmend got me back to training in 2 to 3 days. I've tried a lot of fixes and solutions and this one is the one that really allows my body to recover the quickest and gets me back to full strength and flexibility.
I've tried just about everything. This worked better than the drugstore stuff.
So far so good Less pain
It’s easy to use. Set it and forget it. There wasn’t any info on the tape, though!
I had PRP treatment on my knee which worked fabulously. However I gave this knee an accidental twist which brought back previous injury. I had intended to go back to my physician for another injection when I saw your ad. I decided to try before I paid big bucks for a follow up PRP treatment. At first I did not see much improvement, but after 5 days there was less pain and it has continued to improve even though I did not use Activmend after the recommended 5 days. Well worth the cost of the 5 day treatment.
PRP and ActivMend are similar. Both activate the body to heal and the effects last longer than the actual treatment. It is about kicking off the healing response and your body does the rest! We try hard to not promise magical fixes; but for many it is better than anything else they have tried. Be Well, Dr. Jo.
It seems to work, I have rotator injuries for more than 20 years,however, the first 5 patches seemed to repair the majority of ligaments. I’ll order another kit and see the longer term results
