Dear MendMeShop,

Your Knee Inferno Wrap arrived in the UK last Monday and my son has been using it for the past week. He has just emailed to say it is making a great difference already and he is able to bend his knee much further than before. He is delighted as the leg feels stronger too and he will continue to use it while he under goes physio which starts tomorrow. Fingers crossed his recovery will be quicker than expected because he has been able to use your product. We thank you for your excellent product and will keep you updated over the following weeks. Regards Kim Frame P.S. A follow up received from Kim a few months later: The wrap continued to do its good work and my son made a really quick recovery much to the surprise of the medical professional. He has now returned to work with full mobility although he continues to use the wrap prior to excercise as it warms the muscles thoroughly. Many thanks for an excellent product.

Dear MendMeShop,

In February of this year, I injured my knee while exercising. Since I lost my health benefits through my job due to the economy, I wasn't able to afford a professional diagnosis. The outside area of my left knee was swollen, stiff and painful and I could not put any weight on that area. After mowing my lawn, gardening, exercising or any other physical activity the swelling, stiffness and pain were much worse. I was using a bag of frozen crinkle cut carrots attached by a rubber band around my knee to help alleviate the pain & swelling - not a very high tech solution! I searched online to find what if anything I could do myself to rehab and repair my injury and thankfully I found your web site. From the information your site provided, I determined I had a torn meniscus as the symptoms associated with that were exactly what I was experiencing. I ordered the Knee Therapy Kit, received it in less than one week and began using the kit immediately. It has now been 7 days since I started using the kit and I have already noticed results. My swelling has gone down, the pain is gone and the stiffness is occasional instead of constant. I am so delighted with these results as I am very active and this knee problem was really affecting my lifestyle. Not only that, but I was looking forward to doing a lot of surfing this summer and I am excited as I believe I will be able to without any problems! I will be telling everyone about your web site and products and that is saying a lot because it is rare and refreshing for me to find products that work so well. I'm obviously rating this 5 out of 5 stars!

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 had a diagnosis of a torn ligament in my right foot in July of 2010. After 10 weeks of twice weekly physical therapy, I had limited improvement. I started using your Ankle Achilles Inferno Wrap. You make a quality product and its continued use has restored my normal mobility. Your 1-800 telephone staff has provided outstanding support and service. Thank you for this wonderful healing technology. I will never be without my Inferno Wrap.

Dear MendMeShop,

I have been using the Freeze Wraps to reduce the inflammation, for which they worked great. Last week was the first time I tried the Infernowrap on my right knee and it seems to help just from one treatment. I plan to use it every night when I get back from work. I used the knee Inferno wrap again last night and put it on the medium power and it's helping tremendously. I'm able to bend my knee better and walk with more stability without leaning too much on my left knee to compensate for the injured knee.

Dear MendMeShop,

First I have a bad knee with arthritis and loss of cartilage. Over a year ago I was advised by my doctor to get a knee replacement. I am 70 years old using a arthritis drug, it is not effective as it once was, so I have been getting special shots in my knee, This combination brought my pain level down quite a bit. But I was looking for more because I didn’t want a knee replacement yet. I found you add on the internet for the Freezie and Inferno Wraps. I bought both. When my knee swells from too much activity I use freeze to help bring down the swelling. The freeze really works great and relieves the pain. On a Daily basis when I get up, I use the Inferno Wrap and I immediately can become active for most normal activities for the day without pain, unless I overdo then I do the Freezie. I also use the heat at night when I go to bed which relieves any pain I might have then. I have since bought an Inferno knee wrap for my wife and she says it is the best thing she has ever used to comfort her bad knees. Both her knees are bad with arthritis, and she is wanting another one so she can do both knees at the same time. I also have a lower back that for years was either causing spasms in either side when I would overdo activities, I bought the back Inferno after having such great success with it, each morning I lay it on the bed and lie on it for 20 min before I start my Daily activities. As long as I do this every day I have not had back problems. If I go for a few days without it, my back will start to tighten up again. I then lie on it for relief. One time my back went out completely when not using it and instead of the 2 weeks to get back in shape it only took a few days while using the Inferno. I now use it every morning and night and my back has not went out for some time. My only concern is now my wife is using it so we have to fight for it. Soon we will have to get her one. I am very active in sports and daily activities that require lot of stress on body parts, and as you get older, these body parts don’t work as good as they used to and causes pain. So any help I can get I will go for it. I have also used these wraps on leg muscle cramps for very fast relief and for stiff necks. Anywhere I get a pain I try to wrap one of these Inferno Wrap around it for relief. Great Product!

Dear MendMeShop,

I found the Freezie and Inferno Wraps very effective - my knee is much better now. I was able to discontinue use of the Inferno some weeks ago because of the improvement. However, knees being what they are, I expect that sooner or later I will twist something and have pain. It is just a matter of time before my active lifestyle catches up to me. When it does, I will get out the Cold wrap then switch off to the Inferno again.

Dear MendMeShop,

Thank you for spending time answering my questions and concerns on the Knee Inferno Wrap and wrist products and how to use them. I appreciate that, and I am impressed with your company's personal availability to personally talk with customers. In a fast pace, seemingly no care, 'all out for my benefit' mentality in our society it is refreshing to know I can go on-line and there are people doing business who do care for their product and the people buying them.
I went on-line to find help in treating my very painful meniscus and other issues Arthroscopic surgery on my right knee, that were more severe that my left knee issues had been, so I could find help in speeding up my recovery and get back on my feet again. Having had the same surgery on my left knee only 6 months prior, I was not able to recover as fast as my left knee had not yet fully recovered enough to take the full load of both knees. The Dr. said nothing about recovery only that I could not even put toe weight on my right knee for 4 weeks. So, with my left knee still in recovery this made life extremely difficult. So much so, I had to go to a wheel chair so I would not ruin either of my knees or my back which is suffering from degenerative discs. My knee issues stem from aging and over-use over the years. They are just wearing out.
I am an active person and was not going to consign myself to a wheel chair for the rest of my life. I had no access to physical therapy treatments in my personal situation. So, I took the bull by the horns and got busy finding out what I could do to help myself recover faster and get back in action physically. And I found your company.
I started my personal quest on Internet, which is all I was able to do physically at the time, and found your company, MendMeShop.com. I read all your info and was impressed with what I read and felt comfortable that you were genuine and were out to help me fully recover. The fully guaranteed refund was a plus to me so that I would not spend a lot lf money for something that I would be stuck with and as well did me no good.
You also had a personal way to contact your company to discuss any concerns I might have in using it. You also had expedited mailing so that I could have your product in a few days so I could get started in my recovery. I was willing to pay the extra mailing cost to get the product faster. You really came through on your end and I had my Inferno Knee Wrap in just a few days. That really firmed up to me that you back up your claims about your product and that you truly cared about me and so I could get onto faster recovery sooner.
After receiving the Inferno Knee Wrap, I was having personal issues in how often to use the Knee Wrap and so I called you to help me with this. I felt that the knee wrap was helping me, but I was finding that I could not use it to the fullest degree the instructions mentioned. You helped me and told me to call you back. From your recommendations, I started experimenting on my own to see what would work for me and I found a workable solution for me personally. Each person is unique and what works for one person may not work for another. So, I recommend not giving up and returning this product until you find what works for you.
Because my knee issues are so severe, it will take longer than I want it to, but I am plugging away and using the Inferno Knee Wrap along with stationery bike exercise and I am seeing progress each day.
Thank you for being there when I needed help in recovery of Arthroscopic Knee Surgery. I appreciate you and your company.

Dear MendMeShop,

I have been using the inferno and freezie on my knee (torn meniscus) for several weeks now and have been very happy with the results. Less pain and less inflammation. I have been using the inferno before a work out and up to 3 times a day. I use the freezie after my work out or if I feel my knee is inflamed. I am very pleased that I found your advertisement on my facebook page. I have tell everyone about this product and I can't imagine how my knee will feel in another month. I also use it on my other knee for arthritis. It seems to help. Thanks again and I will continue to endorse your product. Because I believe it works. I showed my physical therapist your product and he was impressed. Yours truly Jacenta Friesen

Post-Operative Rehabilitation
for Knee Surgery

We Have Advanced Treatment Tools to Help You
Get Back on Your Feet!

soft tissue knee anatomy

Not every knee injury or condition requires surgery.

It's generally understood by doctors and surgeons that surgery will introduce more scar tissue into your knee. This added scar tissue will be problematic, requiring physical therapy and conservative treatment options post-surgery. If not dealt with properly, your knee could end up in worse condition than before the surgery! This is why surgery is only performed as a last resort.

Most doctors, surgeons and orthopedic specialists will recommend conservative therapy for minor knee injuries before even considering surgery.

Some of the most effective conservative treatment methods you will find are:

  • Rest - This is important for intial healing because without an appropriate amount of rest you are at risk for increased inflammation, pain and re-injury to your knee. This can make your knee injury even worse, turn an acute injury into a chronic case, or even damage other soft tissue in your knee.
  • Avoid Activities that Caused Your Injury - While resting your knee it's also important to avoid all activities that may have caused your injury in the first place (especially if you are active in any sports or activites that require pivoting or twisting of your knee). Continuing on with regular activities will not only make your injury worse, but limping to 'work around' your injury can also wind up giving you over compensation pain in other areas of your body (like your opposite/healthy knee).
  • Apply Effective Cold Compression
    Effective Cold Compression = Treatment with a Freezie Wrap®

    Immediate cold compression using a Knee Freezie Wrap® will help you to manage pain while getting rid of swelling, inflammation and edema in your knee. Immediate pain relief and reduced inflammation can also relieve some of the pressure that's being placed on the soft tissue in your knee and stop your injury from getting worse.
  • Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) - You can use your own blood flow to maximize healing of damaged tissue, maintain healthy blood flow to your knee, decrease recovery time, and boost overall long-term healing.
  • Stretch your Knee - Stretching will maintain flexibility of your tissue and help to break up scar tissue that forms during healing. Consistent stretching of your knee during conservative treatment pre or post surgery will increase your range of motion and speed up your overall recovery.




Other Conservative Treatment Methods can be Risky

Cortisone is an injectible anti-inflammatory drug.

In some cases, your doctor may recommend drugs or medications like NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflamatory drugs) to manage pain and inflammation. Alternative medications like cortisone injections are NOT advised for most knee soft tissue injuries to the tendon, ligament, or cartilage. This is because there is an increased risk of rupture of a tendon following a cortisone injection.

"Medical evidence shows that cortisone shots can damage the surrounding tissue, fray the tendon, and even trigger a rupture. Most side effects are temporary, but skin weakening (atrophy) and lightening of the skin (depigmentation) can be permanent." (reference: American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons)

Resting too long, or using bracing to restrict movement for extended periods of time, can decrease mobility of your knee and increase pain.

For acute (new or recent) knee injuries that have the ability to heal on their own - your doctor may even suggest use of a removable knee brace. A removable knee brace can be very helpful to prepare you for physical therapy sessions and mobility exercises.

Prolonged use of a removable knee brace or long-term rest (restricted movement) without proper exercise or stretching can make your knee injury worse. If your knee remains completely immobilized and at constant rest, the edges of your soft tissue tear will begin to fill in with massive amounts of scar tissue as part of the healing process. You may also have on-going symptoms of pain, swelling, inflammation, and even poor blood flow circulation.

Lack of proper blood flow and growth of scar tissue will tighten the tissue in your knee, changing your flexibility and range of motion. Your ability to put weight on, flex, twist or pivot your knee in certain activities such as running, jumping, or going up and down stairs all become compromised. You're also at an increased risk of re-injuring your knee, if the initial injury was large and required surgery in the first place.

 


Why won't My Knee Injury Heal?


Serious knee injuries require more intensive surgery.

Have you ever asked yourself this question? Here at MendMyKnee we've had this question asked of us for years. We've created this webpage to answer this any many other related knee injury questions.

If we're born to heal our own injuries, why does our body take so long to heal?

When we have a ligament, tendon, meniscus or other soft tissue knee injury, the tissue and cells are damaged. Your body responds to this damage with healing right away. During this healing process your knee's tissue spasms and this contraction is meant to hold the tissue still to prevent any further injury. Swelling and inflammation is your body's way of sending blood to the area to start healing. Healing at this point will also expand the blood vessels in the injured tissue - they enlarge and swell causing you pain. This pain is a signal for you to lessen activity that would put anymore undue stress on your knee injury. It also acts as a reminder that you have an injury.

Why are knee injuries so hard to overcome?

Knee injuries that won't heal might have a build up of scar tissue

In two words - scar tissue.

Tendons, ligaments, the menisci and other soft tissue in the knee are all meant to be soft and flexible, ready to work and move extreme forces in everyday activities. Damaged tissue heals with scar tissue; little tiny band-aids that overlap each other on the tissue mending the injury. With the added scar tissue the tendons/ligaments/menisci become rigid, less ready to move and unable to recieve the full force of your movements. If you're suffering with scar tissue now you may feel the effects with stiffness, tightness, weakness and tiredness in your knee.

Scar tissue can form fast to bring together the edges of a 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.

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.

Using conservative treatment methods will help to soften scar tissue and bring more blood flow to allow your body to convert this scar tissue to normal, healthy tissue much more quickly. Stretching also helps to organize the scar tissue, increasing the strength of this tissue so it's more like the weave of a basket. Using conservative treatment methods and stretching regularly are both key parts of your recovery and your physical therapy after surgery.

If Surgery is Required...


The type of surgery you will have depends on the type of knee injury you're suffering from. The longer you've waited to have surgery will also be a factor that determines the type of sugery that's needed.


Has it been weeks or months since the injury?

 

Acute ACL injuries can be caused by a sudden twist or pivot in movement.

With acute (recent) tearing the stretch or tear in your tendon/ligament or the damage to your bursa/meniscus may be minimal. If you have an acute tear that is relatively small you may qualify for less invasive surgery (like an arthroscopic procedure). Surgeons will always choose a shorter, less invasive procedure if it's possible to do so. Most surgeons know that a less complicated procedure will have less trauma to your knee and a much quicker rate of recovery after the surgery.


If you're suffering from a chronic knee injury or tissue tear that's been going on for a while (from overuse/repetitive movement) or has been damaged due to aging of your tissue then you may have less options available for surgery. A repair of the tissue, for example, is usually only ever performed for newer (acute) tissue tears where it is possible for the tissue to heal back together. If you have a chronic knee injury there may be more fraying to your ligament or tendon tissue. If you suffer from chronic knee bursitis, it's likely that you also have another soft tissue knee injury (like tendonitis or a torn ligament) that keeps causing your bursitis to recur. In either case arthroscopic surgery may be enough to fix your knee but the amount of tissue that can be repaired will depend on how worn away/frayed (degenerative) your tissue damage is.

Physical therapy is used as conservative therapy instead of surgery.

Your age will also be a factor. Surgery is generally used more often for younger patients requiring a repair to a tendon or ligament tear. Conservative treatment methods and physical therapy are recommended (instead of surgery) for older patients suffering from the same type of injury. (reference: 1)

Even if surgery is required to treat your knee injury, your surgeon may still recommend physical therapy before the procedure. This is sometimes recommended so you may strengthen your quadriceps and hamstring muscles. This is done to help with your post-surgery rehabilitation and speed up post-surgery healing of your knee.


Arthroscopic Knee Surgery


arthroscopic knee surgery

There are 2 main types of surgery: knee arthroscopy and open knee surgery. Arthroscopy is by far the most common procedure used when performing a knee surgery. It's a doctor or surgeons preference to perform an arthroscopy whenever possible, because it's the least invasive surgical procedure and usually has the quickest form of rehabilitation afterward.

Whether you'll qualify for an arthroscopy depends on the severity and type of injury that you have. In many cases, arthroscopy is also used to examine an injury for diagnosis, because this procedure is done with a thin tube containing a camera and light inserted through an incision near the knee joint. This type of surgery will provide the surgeon with a direct look into your injury and help to limit the amount of additional damage from surgery. During this surgery your doctor will only make 2 to 3 keyhole incisions (less than 1 inch in length) to insert the thin tube with the camera, an irrigation instrument and any surgical tools they will need to fix your knee. There will be minimal surface damage to your knee and in some cases; the tiny incisions wont even require stitches to heal.

If you suffer from a more severe knee injury you may need to have an open knee surgery to give the surgeon a better view of your injury and more room to move the surgical tools around if your injury is complicated to fix.

Open Knee Surgery


When researching your options for surgery you may find more information available about arthroscopic surgery. This is because arthroscopy is considered to be the gold standard for knee surgery, meaning that many surgeons prefer to perform an arthroscopy to minimize the how invasive your surgery is. Most doctors and surgeons will automatically consider you for arthroscopy whenever possible to provide you with the fastest rehabilitation and recovery option after surgery.

knee pain location map

If, however, you have a severe injury like a full tissue tear, an open wound from a traumatic event or an accident, bone damage, displacement or fracture, or require a full knee replacement then you will probably have to undergo an open knee surgery.

In an open knee surgery your incision could be 6 to 10 inches in length, or longer if you already have an open wound. During the surgery, instead of making a few keyhole incisions like in the arthroscopy, your surgeon will open up your knee to see the inside joint. This means your surgeon will cut through your skin and the muscle underneath to see your injury. Open knee surgery will probably leave a scar on your knee. The possibility of a scar is yet another reason why surgeons will avoid open surgery wherever possible.

Arthroscopy is considered an outpatient surgery (most of the time you can leave the hospital the same day as your surgery), open surgery is considered an inpatient surgery (you'll have to stay overnight or maybe even longer).

Stability of your Knee after the Surgery

wearing a knee brace after surgery

During the first 24 to 72 hours after surgery your knee will be tender, sweollen and very painful. Your knee may be weak and unstable, and depending on your surgery, you may have to weara knee brace or use crutches for a few weeks. One of the things to keep in mind when recovering from knee surgery is the importance of resting in the beginning, but getting active and going through rehabilitation when it's needed. When you're recovering from surgery and using tools to keep weight off of your knee (like a knee brace or crutches) then your knee and the surrounding muscles aren't as active as they once were.

If you fail to deal with proper rehabilitation of your knee after surgery, muscles loss (atrophy) will occur in your leg. The soft tissue and cartilage in your knee joint may start to wear away (a process called degeneration). There is always a possibility of re-injuring your knee even after a surgical procedure has been done.

Ask any doctor and they'll tell you that the success of your surgery depends on your level of dedication to regular at home care of your knee. Most of our knee post-op clients have treated themselves succesfully through regular use of the Knee Freezie Wrap® and Inferno Wrap®.

Using these therapies will lessen the chance and/or severity of knee joint degeneration and surrounding muscular atrophy during your rehabilitation process. In some cases our customers have prevented the onset of degeneration through regular use of these treatments. They will even combine these therapeutic treatmetns with the rehabilitation plan recommended by their doctor, surgeon or physical therapist.



Getting Started with Your Post-Operative Rehabilitation

knee rehabilitation exercises

If you've had surgery on your knee then your doctor will quickly get you on the path to rehabilitation. The aggressiveness of your rehabilitation efforts and your injury's ability to heal will depend on a variety of factors including (but not limited to):

  • your age, overall health, and activity level
  • the state of your knee injury before surgery... Severe injuries like a full tissue tear, open wound, bone damage or fracture, and partial or full knee replacement will require more intense surgery.
  • the type of surgery you had
  • how soon you need to return to normal activity

Know that no 2 rehabilitation plans are alike - The less invasive your surgery is, the quicker your road to recovery will be.

The goal of a rehabilitation plan is to manage pain and swelling while improving function, strength, and range of motion. Ultimately at the end of your recovery you'll regain strength and return to full activity. In order to achieve this you'll most likely spend a lot of time with a physical therapist after your surgery, but as your healing progresses, emphasis will be placed on your conservative treatments at home.

knee rehabilitation exercises

The success of your rehabilitation will depend on your dedication to working with your physical therapist while also managing your recovery on a daily basis at home.

No matter what type of surgery you've had (or even if you don't need surgery at all) you home therapy routine can be improved by controlling initial and on-going pain/swelling, increasing blood flow to heal your knee injury, and incorporating daily stretches to increase range of motion so that you can achieve long-term, positive results.

All of this can easily be done by incporating a Knee Freezie Wrap® and Inferno Wrap® into your rehabilitation routine. Regular treatment with a Freezie Wrap® and Inferno Wrap® will decrease your time spent in recovery.


Your Post-op Recovery Time can be Reduced...


Treat yourself with effective cold compression to reduce pain and swelling after surgery.

With the use of a Knee Cold Compression Freezie Wrap® and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy with a Knee Inferno Wrap® following surgery.

Cold compression is recommended by doctors following surgery to treat your pain in a natural, non-addictive way and to reduce swelling. It's hard to find the most effective from of Cold Compression. Ice and sub-par wraps warm up too quickly or numb your skin beyond feeling - causing even more damage in your already-damaged joint! Effective Cold Compression can only be achieved with regular use of a Knee Freezie Wrap®.

After the incision site has healed (if there is one), speak with your doctor about using our Knee Inferno Wrap® to get Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy. Using our Knee Inferno Wrap® as soon as you can following your surgery will minimize scar tissue growth in your knee that will form as you heal. Treating scar tissue is the most important step following surgery, especially in a joint to improve its range of motion.

Get a superior level of blood flow circulation with a BFST Inferno Wrap.

Leaving the scar tissue untreated can lead to stiffness, chronic pain, osteoarthritis or other chronic conditions. You're more likely to end up with another knee injury if you choose not to treat the scar tissue that develops in your knee. BFST® encourages more oxygen and nutrients to flow to the area to speed healing and improve the strength of the soft tissue in your joint.

As you maintain healthy blood flow circulation in your knee it's also important to keep moving. If you stop moving your joint will stiffen up and surrounding muscle and soft tissue will begin to atrophy (waste away). You can strengthen your knee through stretching and exercise with a Knee-Flex®.

Get a superior level of blood flow circulation with a BFST Inferno Wrap.

The Knee-Flex® is the only sturdy, easy gliding, wooden track device available to give you the consistent, passive stretching you need to improve your range of motion. Consistent stretching at home without the help of a physical therapist is hard and might even end up hurting your knee.

Only MendMyKnee offers a 3-Step Recovery Process that gets you on your feet faster, speeding up your overall healing with long-lasting, sustainable results.




Post-OP Phase 1 - Protect your Knee & Start Moving

Rehabilitation and physical therapy after an arthroscopic or open knee surgery will first focus on protecting your knee and initiating simple movement. Directly after your surgery has been completed, your knee will go through Step 1 of the healing process by stopping the bleeding that has started because of the incisions and work done inside of your knee. Depending on the type of procedure you have just had, your tissue may be sutured together, reconstructed or removed to fix your underlying condition. In any case, as with any injury to your tissue, the tissue in your knee will be bleeding again. Depending on the type of injury you have, your surgeon may even stimulate bleeding during your surgery to trigger the healing process.

Typically your body will have begun to stop the bleeding as soon as your surgeon has completed your surgery. This means that the veins carrying your blood will close off, and your blood will coagulate (condense to seal the bleeding off) in order to reduce the amount of blood loss in your body. Your body knows to do this automatically because blood is so vital to the healing process. Blood is basically the vehicle for oxygen, nutrients, white blood cells and anti-bodies that travel directly to the injury in your knee where these things are needed most.

If you have undergone an arthroscopic surgery, you may have less blood loss and your doctor or surgeon will check before you leave to make sure your bleeding at the incisions has stopped. If you have undergone an open knee surgery, your doctor and/or surgeon will check your incisions periodically over the next few days of your hospital-stay to ensure that your body has stopped the bleeding on its own and also make sure that your incisions are starting to heal.

After your incisions, repaired and/or removed tissue has stopped bleeding; your knee will become tender, swollen, red and hot to the touch. These are all symptoms of inflammation (Step 2 of the healing process). At this point you will be home if you have had arthroscopic surgery, or you may still be in the hospital if you have had open knee surgery. In order to reduce pain, swelling and inflammation your doctor will prescribe an anti-inflammatory drug to be taken during the first week or 2 after your surgery. Your surgeon will also recommend a cooling therapy, like R.C.C.E. (Rest, Cold, Compression, Elevation). You can use the Knee Freezie® for 15 to 20 minutes at a time, several times a day, to control your inflammation and reduce your pain.

Rest at this point is vital to your rehabilitation plan depending on the surgery you have undergone. If you have had arthroscopic surgery with minimal work from your surgeon, you may be encouraged to start movement early or as soon as possible. Walking with the aid of crutches and a knee brace will be required in most cases after the surgery. If you have had an invasive open surgery, then you may be encouraged to rest longer at first before starting movement with you knee brace and crutches.

Your doctor or surgeon will advance you to the next Phase of rehabilitation when there is no evidence of inflammation or swelling in your knee. If you have had arthroscopic surgery, your doctor may expect that you are able to walk around pain free (with the aid of crutches or a knee brace if needed) before moving onto the next Phase of rehabilitation.

Post-OP Phase 2 - Gain Back Range-of-Motion (ROM) and Stability

After the initial healing of your knee injury (when Step 1 and 2 of the healing process is done), temporary tissue will start to grow to replace any veins, nerves and tissue that were damaged during your injury or the surgery (Step 3: Temporary Tissue Growth). This temporary tissue will also pull together the two sides of your tissue tear, and strengthen any area where you will have sutures. This tissue will lay the foundation for stronger, healthier tissue to come, but it will be soft and not as strong as regular healthy tissue. This is why you really need to be on "re-injury watch" and make the most of your home therapies for the rest of your rehabilitation. After all, it would be devastating for you if over-doing it at any point during the next few weeks or months of rehabilitation will send you right back into the operating room.

knee flex rehabitation therapy post op knee

Once your new tissue has begun to grow you will be encouraged to gain back some of your range of motion (ROM) and increase the stability of your knee. Your doctor or surgeon may also introduce regular physical therapy appointments. You may still be expected to wear your knee brace to reduce the amount of stress you are placing on your knee during movement (reducing your risk of re-injury).

You will start gradual movement of your knee in a free (non-forced) way with very low impact exercises. Your knee may be stiff at first, and you should expect simple and easy movement to be a bit more difficult for you to master and painful. Exercise of any kind is a method of increasing blood-flow in your knee to increase the amount of oxygen, nutrients, white blood cells and anti-bodies that travel to your injured tissue. You can increase your blood flow before exercise to warm up your tissue and increase your ease of movement. Use of the Knee Inferno Wrap® for approximately 15 to 20 minutes (finishing 15 minutes before exercise) will warm up your knee, relax your muscles and encourage tissue elasticity.

Some of the basic exercises you will start with may include controlled flexing (bending) of your knee by sliding your heel away from your body then back toward your body. A Knee-Flex® Passive Stretch Device will help you to move your knee in a safe and passive way by providing consistent knee flexing exercise to strengthen and stretch the different muscle groups in your leg, hip and back while stimulating blood flow. Other exercise and strengthening may focus on the use of a stationary bicycle, or stretching of the leg muscles surrounding your knee (quadriceps, hamstrings, thighs and calves) to increase the overall stability of your knee joint.

Controlling post-exercise swelling and inflammation is crucial during this Phase. Any sign of swelling or inflammation after exercise may be an indication of minor re-injury to your knee or to the surrounding tissues and muscles. Controlling your inflammation immediately after exercise for at least 15 to 20 minutes with a Knee Freezie Wrap® may prevent any chance of re-injury to your knee. If you are not careful to treat your swelling or inflammation immediately after exercise you will experience a set-back in your recovery.

Your doctor, surgeon or physical therapist will advance you to the next Phase of rehabilitation when you show measured improvement of range of motion (ROM), strength, stability and flexibility of your knee. The level of improvement will depend on the severity of your injury and the type of surgery you have had. For example, if you have had a relatively simple arthroscopic repair of tissue, you may be expected to walk normally (no limping) before moving to Phase 3 of your rehabilitation.

Post-OP Phase 3 - Gain Back Full Capability of Your Knee

After temporary tissue has grown in Step 3 of the healing process, this temporary tissue will go through different stages of conversion into healthy, normal, flexible tissue during Step 4 (Complete Tissue Re-Growth). Before converting into healthy tissue, temporary tissue will often become tough, dense, fibrous scar tissue. Scar tissue has a weak and unorganized tissue structure, which makes it brittle. Scar tissue will provide your injury with more long term fusing together, but will also stick to surrounding healthy tissue in your knee. The growth of this scar tissue is what stiffens your knee, restricting movement and flexibility.

This Phase of your rehabilitation will focus on an increase in activity level in order to regain full range of motion (ROM) and muscle strength in your leg. Continued exercise and activity will break up and soften scar tissue. Your doctor of physical therapist will increase your activity by introducing regular use of a stationary bicycle (or other cardiovascular exercise), and additional stretching exercises (lunges, hamstring curls, quadriceps stretching and movement of your hip and lower leg). Continued use of the Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device will minimize the growth of scar tissue and also increase the elasticity and strength of your knee joint. After using the Knee-Flex® over time, your knee joint will be better prepared to handle higher and higher loads.

freeze wrap knee

You will probably be able to stop using your crutches at this point as long as you focus on walking slowly and normally. Limping during rehabilitation should be avoided at all costs, because abnormal walking could result in re-injury of your knee, or even injury to your opposite leg, feet, hip or your back. If you have been limping to speed up your recovery, you will probably start to notice compensation pain in your opposite leg, hip or back. You can easily treat compensation pain with your doctor of physical therapist during your regular appointments, and can even further reduce this pain at home with an Inferno Wrap®. Inferno Wraps® will relax your muscles, effectively getting rid of any stiffness and aching caused by compensation pain.

Continued use of cooling therapy (R.C.C.E.) after exercise and activity may still be recommended by your doctor. Like we mentioned before, controlling your pain and inflammation will go a long way to reduce your risk of re-injury. If you are noticing any recurring inflammation, you can continue R.C.C.E. treatments with a Knee Freezie Wrap® 2 to 3 times per day for 15 to 20 minutes at a time, or as recommended by your doctor.

Your doctor or physical therapist will advance you to the next Phase of rehabilitation when they feel that you have regained full ROM (range of motion) without pain in your knee. You may also have to pass clinical exams or tests of your muscle strength, balance, stability and flexibility in order to be cleared for Phase 4.

Post-OP Phase 4 - Return to Regular Use & Activity

When your overall condition and range of motion has improved your doctor or physical therapist may clear you for a return to work or athletic activity. In many cases, they may recommend that you continue muscle strengthening and stretching instructed during your rehabilitation in order to maintain healthy ROM of your knee. Additional cardiovascular exercise will also be encouraged. If you are an athlete or have a job that requires extensive physical capability, your doctor or physical therapist will likely advise a very gradual return to previous activity.

Scar tissue may plague you for weeks, months and maybe even years after your surgery depending on your level of activity and the amount of conservative therapy you have undergone during your rehabilitation. Scar tissue will be a major problem, especially when it comes to re-injury of your knee. Even if you have been cleared to get back to activity you still must be careful with the activity you take on. You need to keep in mind that your knee wont be back to 100% for some time (if at all) and so continued stretching with the Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device and treatment with Knee Inferno® and Freezie® Wraps will maintain good health of the knee and significantly reduce your risk of re-injury.

Dear MendMeShop,

Just a little note to thank you for your wonderful products-they really work. Some months ago I was diagnosed with a meniscus tare, after seeing the specialist and getting an injection which only temporarily took away the pain. Facing the possibility of having to have surgery I looked in the internet for an alternative treatment-when I came across Mend Me Shop. Before I started the treatment it was painful and difficult to walk, now I am walking an average of 14,000 steps a day without pain or discomfort. Pastor Geli, Th.D

Dear MendMeShop,

I had gone to 3 different doctors, with no results. So I decided to do something myself. Looked up on internet and ran across your information. Which covered everything and with the 2 month guarantee I thought it couldn't hurt to try. Boy, am I glad I did. My knee improved in a two weeks time. I wasn't able to use the wrap 3 times a day, but I did try. I could not believe the difference it made and how soon it healed. I had been using a cane. I'm back to normal. Thank you so much, Katherine

Specialized Knee Pain Treatment Options

Dear MendMeShop,

Dear MENDMESHOP People: I just want you to know what miraculous relief your products gave me. I had a torn ligament near the inside ankle of my left foot (called "posterior tibial tendonitis" after a long series of non-effective treatments). I received this injury last OCTOBER!!! (This is August!) My podiatrist had put me in an immovable "boot" the first 2 months (from about Nov. 1, 2011, to Jan 8, 2012. Then he put me in a lesser type of brace till the middle of May. I was not getting any better, so he put me in a "permanent" molded brace which supposedly would do the trick (according to him). But I asked the one who fitted me with this brace how long he thought I would need it, and he plainly said, "The rest of your life!" I yelled, "NOOOOOOOOOO! I will not!!! I WILL BE HEALED!" However, I didn't know how. I then began researching on the internet some other means of healing this type of injury. I found out that tendons do not heal well by themselves, so all I was doing was propping up my injury to a lifestyle of pain and hardship. By the grace of God, I had acquired a motorized chair (I called it my "Chariot") to use, which was a life-saver for about 9 months, or I would have been virtually apartment-bound in this retirement complex where we now live. So I was grateful for the chariot, but it wasn't helping my injured foot to heal. I thought it surely MUST BE healing, but that brace-fitter gave me a rude awakening that it was not, nor would it ever be! Wow! So I researched on the internet any possible alternatives for healing my foot. The MENDMESHOP had the most promising way of healing torn tendons, or tendonitis, that I could find. However, we had already spent lots of money on braces, etc., so I didn't purchase it right away. But that allowed me to see that truly, I was NOT getting any better, even in that fancy, molded-to-my foot-and-calf brace. So after more careful research and printing out the articles in your website to study, my husband and I agreed to take the plunge and order the products. Right off the bat, I found that this was a company that was honest in its dealings, because your sales rep/counselor said it had been too long since my original injury for the Freezie Wrap to be effective, and I only needed the Inferno Wrap. That was a big PLUS in my opinion, which indicated to me that MENDMESHOP was not just out to SELL if I would buy. I even argued somewhat with the rep, but he stood firm, saying I didn't need the Freezie at this point! So I followed his advice and he was so right! I received my Inferno Wrap on July 14 and began using it right away. I used the Inferno Wrap at Medium intensity, at about 2 PM and 11 PM. I followed that routine faithfully for about 10 days, and then increased the procedure to 3 times per day for about 5 more days. On August 2 (only 2 weeks and 5 days into the program) I became truly healed! TRULY HEALED, can you imagine?!? I could hardly believe it, but it was so! There was no pain even without my brace on. And I have not worn the brace since! For a couple of days I still used my "Chariot" for the longer walks I had to do, but then I began leaving it behind and walking normally -- no brace, no pain, no problem! I've even been shopping now without having to use one of those motorized chairs to get around. Thank you SO MUCH!!! I hope you will use this letter to encourage others like me to "take the plunge" and order the equipment and do the routine. It works, and I'd be happy to help anyone do it. In fact, yesterday as I was shopping, I met a woman who had a "boot" on just like the one I first had. I could sypathize greatly with her, so I told her all about you and how to access you on the internet. I pray she will. God bless all of you who run the MENDMESHOP. Gratefully yours, Peggy

Dear MendMeShop,

I'm 52 & in fairly good shape, I mountain bike for hours - at least twice a week. I kayak offshore for hours twice a week. I also snorkle & work out. So when my son invited me to play paint ball, my leg muscles were strong enough to do what my mind told them...to a point where my left leg (the one that got bent backwards playing little league baseball 29 years ago) became so painful the next day. I was shocked & amazed how I had gone from in great shape to a hobbling old man. A bit of research I re-learned hot before & cold after a workout/activity. Cold packs are cheap at the drug store & heat pads are too, but destroyed a few of these in the microwave oven to heat. I found the frozen packs seemed a bit too much & the heat pads ether nearly burned me or wasn't hot enough to get deep. I then went back & ordered your hot & cold products AND MY PRODUCTS GOT HERE IN MAUI IN TWO DAYS ARRIVING ASTONISHINGLY ON A SATURDAY !!!! I now heat up both my knees before a workout or just as good treatment & cool 'em down after. I feel like I'm 99% better but I'll continue to use these products as I feel it'll keep me from getting a knee injury. The relief is so wonderful...I paddle for hours and I have no issues.

Dear MendMeShop,

I purchased the Inferno Knee Wrap and I cannot tell you how much I love this product. I have a misalignment in my back and big toe of my right foot - which caused my left knee to swell. I used the Inferno on my knee and it is now fully healed. Keep these wonderful products coming. You saved me from a possible knee surgery! Thank you Mendmeshop - many times over!

Dear MendMeShop,

I am very pleased with the results that I received from my purchase of the Knee Inferno and Freezie Wraps. I applied the treatments to my left knee every day for about 2 1/2 months. I am healed completely and back to load bearing movements to my left leg. Currently I am suffering from Piriformis Syndrome on my right side/leg, upper hamstring area. I have just ordered the leg/arm inferno wrap. I hope to receive good benefits of pain relief as soon as I can get this wrap. I will be waiting impatiently. Thank you. Angi Perretti Orlando, FL

Dear MendMeShop,

I've had the Inferno Wrap for knees just one week. I could feel a big difference in just a few days. It seemed like surgery was the only option, but now I'm pretty sure my knees will heal. I'm using it faithfully 2-3 x/day. Amazing! Your telephone support was excellent too. I called before the wraps arrived, and was given good information and guidance. Thank you!! Virginia

Dear MendMeShop,

A couple of years ago I helped my husband cut firewood on a hillside. I began to experience pain in my Achilles tendon shortly after we had finished getting all of the firewood cut, split and stacked. I limped through the winter and in the spring began to worry that I wouldn't be able to take care of my gardens. I finally went to the doctor and was prescribed physical therapy. The PT did help with the pain but didn't really "cure" the problem. I continued home physical therapy for another year and began to research therapies to help the tendon. I wanted to avoid surgery if possible. I came across the MendMeShop website and read about the products recommended for Achilles tendon. The cost seemed minimal compared to what I had already spent at the doctor and physical therapist. I ordered the Inferno Wrap and the Freezie Wrap for the ankle and used them according to the directions. I felt great pain relief and the flexibility in my Achilles returned within a few weeks of treatments. I have also been using a night splint following my last Inferno Wrap night treatment before retiring. With that regimen, I have been able to avoid a surgical tendon correction and have been able to resume my normal busy activities. Thank you MendMeShop for your great products and customer service follow-up of the shipment of products.

Dear MendMeShop,

I am most satisfied with the products that I purchased. It is clearly high quality and I am positive it will heal my knee in the long run. I am really looking forward to getting my knee sorted out permanently. I did have a knee operation about two years ago but there were no time to give it a decent recovery time. Unfortunately as a mechanic working on the power plant here in Salerno, we work on gravel surfaces 24/7 for 85 days before returning home for a 3 week vacation. At the age of 53 it becomes real stress full and I also had to put away my running shoes, which was also a blow to me. I am very confident that your products will get me back on the road again and I would love to do the Comrades ultra marathon in South Africa for the third time.
