Running Knee Injury Specialists are Friendly and Helpful.

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.

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.

 


Treating a Meniscus Injury

Some small meniscus tears have no symptoms at all and may disappear on their own. Other less severe or non-complex tears will subside with conservative treatments, especially if your knee is stable and doesn't lock. These tears are often located on the outer edges of your meniscus and have access to a lot of blood supply.

anatomy meniscus blood supply

It is the blood in your body that heals and repairs damage to your tissue. By transporting oxygen and nutrients to the damaged tissue and flushing away dead cells, your blood helps your body to heal itself. Unfortunately, when a meniscus injury occurs and you have knee pain you need to prevent further injury and rest the area to allow it to heal. By resting, you actually limit the flow of blood and slow the healing process. The trick is to slow tissue damage, reduce scar tissue, and generate blood flow to speed healing and prevent further damage.

Younger patients tend to have higher success rates with meniscus injuries than older individuals, as their conditions are generally a result of trauma to healthy tissue rather than degeneration over the years. Individuals with a discoid meniscus will often receive conservative treatments if they experience no major pain. However, surgery is often used if symptoms do not subside as they grow.

Cold Compression Therapy

Cold Compression Freezie Wrap Therapy for your ACL tear

When a tear first occurs or when it is irritated by overuse or re-injury, you experience swelling and inflammation in your knee. Using ice compression to treat a meniscus injury and knee pain reduces pain, swelling, and tissue damage.

Ice compression therapy works by slowing nerve and cell function in the knee. This is important because once blood vessels are damaged, they can no longer carry oxygenated blood to the meniscus and tissue cells begin to break-down.

The Knee Freezie Wrap® allows you to treat yourself in an effective and convenient way and the frigid temperature provided by the Knee Freezie Wrap® slows cell function thereby reducing cellular break-down. Furthermore, because the ice wraps serve to numb the nerves, the wraps also reduce pain!

The ice gel packs inside the Freezie Wrap® have been designed with ColdCure Technology®. This allows the pack to be supercharged in the freezer and keep a frigid temperature for the duration of the treatment. This unique technology, inside a soft and completely adjustable neoprene wrap, gives you comfortable, convenient, and effective ice cold compression therapy.

The Knee Inferno Wrap® = Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy

Once inflammation and swelling have been reduced in your knee, nourishing and strengthening the tissue in your joint is the goal. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) promotes blood flow to the treatment area bringing the necessary oxygen and nutrients to your meniscus and other weakened tissue. BFST® speeds up the body's natural repair process for faster healing and stronger tissue.

Remember, the meniscus is cartilage and does not receive much blood flow naturally and when you rest your knee, you are not creating the natural blood flow your knee usually receives. With the use of Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy you can increase your body’s blood supply to the knee and healing power.

In addition, the fresh blood flow whisks away dead cells and toxins (including lactic acid, commonly found in trigger points) that have built up from the injury leaving the area clean and better prepared for healing. Our Knee Inferno Wrap® provides effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief with no side effects.

Keeping your knee as healthy and strong as possible throughout the healing process will allow you to get back to your regular activities faster. The Knee Inferno Wrap®, available exclusively from MendMeShop®, provides effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief and healing with no side effects.

The benefits of BFST® do not end once your knee pain stops! Even when your meniscus has healed, your activities can put your knee at risk of an overuse injury, tightness, or another tear. An Inferno Wrap® treatment before activity is an easy way to warm up the knee tissues and prepare them for use. Then, end your day with another treatment to prevent tightness from setting in overnight. This incredible healing tool will be the ticket to healthy knees for years to come!

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. With these therapies you will notice great improvement within a few weeks, with most meniscus patients seeing some improvement quickly. The more diligent you are with your treatment and rehabilitation, the faster you will see successful results. If you start using your knee before it has a chance to heal properly (even though it may feel better), you can end up doing a lot more damage than good!

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy is a beneficial way to help decrease pain in the soft tissues, restore atrophied muscles and improve knee and leg strength and mobility. The type of physical therapy and the duration will be dependent on the extent of your meniscus injury.

Gentle massage around the injured knee area or small flexing or extending knee movements (if not painful) will also help increase blood flow, oxygen, nutrients, and will prevent stiffness.

Theraputic exercise

Once your pain starts to diminish, a physiotherapist will set up an individualized knee and leg strengthening and stretching exercise program for you to perform at home or in the gym. This will be based on your needs and abilities, and will help you return to performing your normal routines. Individuals will often exercise or lift weights on their own to try and build up their strength; however in doing so, they can do more damage. It is extremely important to strengthen your muscles properly, as they may have weakened during the period of non-use. A trained therapist will help to ensure your rehabilitation process is effective. For best, long-term results use physical therapy along with an exercise program.

Once your therapist has recommended stretching exercises for the knee, you will find that the Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device is one of the most widely used methods of knee rehabilitation that can be used in your own home. To learn more about the Knee-Flex® click here.
