Running Knee Injury Specialists are Friendly and Helpful.

Dear MendMeShop,

I still am amazed at how the inferno wrap helped! I don't remember if I told you this, but about 20 years ago I had orthoscopic surgery on my knee. It never got back to normal. Lost a lot of flexibility in that knee and suffered with pain mostly at night. Thought it was arthritis. It felt out of joint and I was painful to straighten it at night. And when I would get up out of bed or after sitting for awhile I would have to "ease" into position to be able to walk on it. Last fall, I injured my knee in the garden. It was very painful to bear weight on it. In fact I was scooting around the house in an office chair on wheels. The doctor said the 'popping' in my knee was due to out-of-place ligament from the orthoscopic surgery. I started using the inferno wrap and ice wrap alternatively and still can't believe how fast my knee heeled. I no longer use either. About a week ago I started doing water aerobics and it feels soooo good! I do have a lot of arthritis, and it's bone-on-bone. However the pain in straightening that knee is no longer there! All those years of pain seem more like a bad dream! It's wonderful to be able to get up from sitting and move freely! Now my goal is to strengthen my knee with exercise. Thank you so much for the wraps!

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'm regularly using both Leg and Plantar Inferno Wraps now and I'm already seeing extreme/good results. Basically I'm doing lots of running now and enjoy competing 5k's & 10k's. Hopefully full marathon soon and to achieve better results I need to train hard; consequences [of this] are typical running injuries. Obviously I'm treating my Plantar Fascia [with the Plantar Inferno Wrap], and using the Leg Inferno Wrap I'm treating my calf and hamstring. Both Inferno Wraps I should say are user friendly / easy to use except you need to be near electrical outlet to operate this gadget. I should say this equipment is a big help to the runners world.

Preventing Knee Pain

Professional athletes are not the only ones plagued with knee injury and pain. Millions of people experience knee injuries while competing in sports, at work or participating in other daily activities every year. Millions more fall victim to knee diseases and seek relief from chronic joint pain. Although knee pain is common, there are steps you can take to reduce your risk of injury and disease, manage your pain and treat your knee injuries to promote healing.

Whether you have never experienced knee pain, you have recovered from an injury or you are dealing with chronic knee disease, there are steps you can take to prevent injury and minimize your pain. Maintaining a healthy weight, performing appropriate stretching and strengthening exercises and using protective and supportive equipment can protect your knees. With your physician's approval, it is important to stay active to keep your knee joints healthy and functioning.

Maintain a Healthy Weight
Staying within a healthy weight range is important in combating knee injuries.

By maintaining a healthy weight, you are decreasing the burden on your knee joints. Less strain on your knees decreases the risk of injury and degenerative diseases. The Mayo clinic states that if your Body Mass Index (BMI); that is, the ratio between your height and weight, is between 25 and 29.9 you are considered overweight. To measure your BMI, click here.

If you find that your BMI is above the healthy range there are simple steps you can take to get you to that healthy range. Making nutritional food choices and becoming more active will result in safe weight loss. For more info on how to get started, click here.

When considering how to become more active, remember choosing an activity appropriate for your knee pain is important to ensure you can participate and to prevent further damage. For instance, consider swimming or other low-impact activities over running and volleyball. If your pain allows you to participate in higher-impact activities, do not overdo it. Let your body be your guide and if you experience pain take a break or decrease your level of intensity.

Strengthening and Stretching Exercises
Strengthen your knee tissues with exercise.

Knee injuries often occur because there is not sufficient muscle support around the joint. By strengthening the quadriceps and hamstrings your balance and stability increases and chance of injury decreases. Just a few minutes of leg strengthening exercises, 3 times per week will help prevent injury. Ask your physician, the trainer at your gym or your coach for exercises recommended for your specific injury. Don't forget to warm up your muscles before beginning any strengthening exercises with 5 minutes of walking or other low-impact aerobic exercise. For general strengthening exercise suggestions, click here.

Stretching is often considering an add-on when exercising, however, muscle flexibility also prevents injury. When ligaments and muscles are flexible they are less likely to be twisted, pulled or torn. Include stretching exercises in your program after your strengthening routine to prevent tightness in your muscles and decrease your risk of damage. Be sure to stretch slowly and do not overstretch the muscle. For stretching exercise suggestions, click here.

Use the Proper Equipment and Protective Gear
Wear proper knee protection to prevent knee injury and pain.

Spending some time and money to properly prepare yourself for activities will help to keep you from pain and injury. By using protective gear and equipment appropriate for work or play, you will be able to minimize knee damage.

Knee pads shield you from trauma during sports such as volleyball and in-line skating and provide protection and comfort to those with jobs that require excessive amounts of kneeling like plumbing, tiling and landscaping.

Knee guards and shin guards also provide protection from trauma, especially during sports with frequent blows to the knee such as hockey and basketball.

How to Order

Wearing a knee brace in situations where jumping, twisting or heavy lifting is required will provide support to the ligaments, muscles and cartilage and help to prevent hyperextension of the knee joint.

Choosing the proper shoe for your activity can ensure you are receiving support and flexibility where you need it. Although athletic shoes may look similar they are designed with the sport in mind. Court shoes are built for quick turns and stops, however, running shoes provide more cushioning and arch support to protect feet and knees from pounding steps.
