Running Knee Injury Specialists are Friendly and Helpful.

Dear MendMeShop,

In August of 2009, I suffered a severe meniscus tear in my left knee, pain level 9.5 out of 10. This occurred in my sleep while trying to untangle sheets that had wrapped around my ankles. I had awoken suddenly to severe pain that that only got worse as the injury began to swell under my kneecap. This injury rendered me unable to walk and getting out of bed took 5 - 10 minutes. I would prop myself up on crutches with a pillow in my mouth to bite down on and stifle my yelling as to not disturb the rest of my family, while I straightened my leg. I needed to do this every time before I could begin a trip to the bathroom; which at 49 years old is a 3am occurrence every night. I knew I was a candidate for arthroscopic surgery. I had major and minor surgies over the past two years and was not excited about another one. I started to research options online when I stumbled upon The MendMeShop. After reading the testimonies and weighing the cost, I decided to give the Knee Inferno and Knee Freezie a try! BOY! AM I GLAD THAT I DID!! Within a couple of weeks, I was able to get rid of the crutches and was 95% pain free in 8 weeks, completely healed and back on a treadmill two weeks after that. I have a friend at church who had the same injury, opted for surgery, and took 12 weeks to heal. Purchasing the wraps was by far the wisest medical treatment decision I have ever made for two reasons. Once you have surgery you are never the same,(with knee surgery you are almost guaranteed arthritis in the affected area within ten years or less), and the healing process was quicker without having to undergo invasive surgery. Thank you MendMeShop!! Fan For Life

More Facts About Knees:

Babies are born without knee caps. They appear when the child reaches 2-6 years of age.


The knee is the largest articular joint in the body.


Each knee has two tough, rubbery menisci that act as shock absorbers in the joint.


One meniscus sits on the inside of the knee joint and is referred to as the medial meniscus. The other meniscus rests on the outer part and is referred to as the lateral meniscus.


Arthritis is one of the most common causes of knee bursitis.


BFST is a highly effective treatment for knee bursitis.


Runner's knee is not exactly a condition in itself. It sums up a multitude of knee disorders with different causes all centering around the kneecap.


Obesity and improper body alignment are responsible for many knee injuries.


Optimal knee treatment includes avoiding activity, icing the inflammation, gently stretching and warming the area.


BFST treatments can speed ACL, PCL and meniscus recovery significantly.

 

Dear MendMeShop,

I sustained a re-injury to the lateral right knee in a hiking incident on a wet path. Initially, I treated with anti-inflammatory medication, ice, elevation and knee brace. This injury was very similar to the previous knee injury, so I thought my knee would heal without seeking orthopedic evaluation. I started using a heating pad with a massage feature to relieve pain and found that the heat helped tremendously, but did not radiate deep enough into my knee. Since I am a Certified Rehabilitation RN, I started researching the Internet looking for a product that would provide radiant heat. I was happy to discover your Inferno Knee Wrap. I have been using it several times a day for several weeks and I am now pain free and functionally able to resume all activities. I still continue using the Inferno Knee Wrap on a daily basis in hopes that I can prevent another knee injury. Thank you for such a wonderful product.

Treating knee osteoarthritis

Medical Professional can diagnosed your osteoarthritis

Once your medical professional has diagnosed your osteoarthritic condition, they will recommend the most effective treatment for your knee arthritis based on you and your lifestyle. They will consider your activity level, your age, the location and severity of your knee arthritis, as well as how long you have had it, the symptoms you experience and any other associated knee injuries. The therapy for a 34-year old athletic, working woman will not be the right treatment for a 75-year old retired man. Also, the treatment for a high energy, competitive or aggressive type-A personality, may not be suited to an easy going, relaxed and patient type-B personality.

Success Stories

There really isn't a cure for osteoarthritis. Generally the focus of treatment is to relieve and control your knee pain and inflammation, slow down your arthritis progression, minimize your knee joint damage and the risks of therapy, maximize your knee mobility and function, improve your muscle strength and control, prevent work disability, and improve or maintain your quality of life.

How to Order

Conservative treatments are usually recommended in the beginning. However, as your arthritis progresses, treatments that once worked may no longer be effective. Surgical options are used if the conservative treatments fail, and your knee damage and pain severely interfere with your daily living. 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.

The best way to manage your knee arthritis is to be one step ahead of the process, combining conventional practices and medicines with alternative treatments, joint protection, patient education, lifestyle changes if required, and self-management (diet, rest, exercise). The more diligent you are with your treatment and rehabilitation, the faster you will see successful results.

Tai chi can strengthen and stretch your leg muscles to support an osteoarthritic knee

People with early osteoarthritis in the knee tend to have higher success rates than individuals with later onset, as their conditions are generally a result of trauma to healthy tissue rather than degeneration over the years. Scar tissue will often develop as a result of injuries once acute inflammation begins to decrease. As your damaged knee tissues heal this dead, fibrotic tissue will develop instead of forming brand new healthy tissue. This tissue adheres to your muscle fibers, tendons, ligaments, fascia, nerves, and joints causing pain and preventing them from moving properly (this limits your range of motion, flexibility and strength).
