Dear MendMeShop,

Last spring, I aggravated an old injury in my right knee and I was in pain. My brother-in-law had recovered from knee inflammation using the Knee BFST wrap. So he loaned me his to use and I was pain-free within six weeks. I apparently stressed the knee again recently. I decided to order my own Knee BFST wrap this time - so that I would be prepared in the years to come. I am experiencing relief already and I am very grateful!

Types of Sprains

Grade 1, 2, 3

Success Stories

Ligaments stabilize joints during motion and rest as well as limit directional movement. When a joint, such as the ankle, moves too forcefully in a direction not allowed by the ligaments there is great risk of injury. The degree of the injury depends on the severity of the trauma sustained by the ankle ligaments. In most cases an ankle sprain does not warrant a trip to the doctor but it may become necessary if the symptoms do not diminish. Furthermore, a proper diagnosis of a grade 1, 2 or 3 sprain will allow for a more tailored treatment program. A grade one sprain, which is the mildest and most common, consists of minimal pain and swelling around the ankle and is a result of the ligaments being stretched without tearing the dense fibers of the ligament. Second-degree sprains involve minor tearing of the ligament without complete rupture and because of the torn tissues and blood vessels there is more swelling from the excess blood. Third-degree sprains are the most traumatic and painful with a complete rupturing of the ligament. There will be severe inflammation and potential for bruising around the area and depending on the cause of the injury, the ankle may look twisted in more serious cases. Putting weight on the ankle will be very painful, and if this is the case you should see your doctor immediately and try not to put any pressure of any kind on the injured ankle. A third-degree sprain requires extensive rehabilitation and may include surgery.

Inversion ankle sprain

Inversion
Inversion ankle sprains, the most common sprain, occurs when the foot rolls over onto the lateral side, in an inward motion. This motion puts added stress on the ligaments of the outer ankle and often this stress proves to be too much and you will suffer a sprain. Pain is always felt on the outside of the ankle, simply because that is where the injury has occured. There are three ligaments, the anterior and posterior talofibular ligaments and the calcanefibular ligament, that make up the lateral collateral ligament (LCL) on the outside of the ankle; these are the ligament(s) that are stretched or torn during an inversion sprain.

Eversion ankle sprain

 

 

Eversion
Eversion ankle sprains occur much less frequently than inversion injuries. While eversion sprains do occur it is just much more difficult to twist your foot outwardly when taking part in regular and sports related activities. Eversion sprains involve the ligament on the inside of the ankle, known as the deltoid ligament.



High Ankle Sprain
A "high" ankle sprain, also known as syndesmotic sprain, is an inury to the syndesmotic ligament that joins the tibia and fibula bones of the lower leg. The distinction exists because a "high" ankle sprain occurs above the ankle joint and is more severe than a sprain of the joint ligaments.

High ankle sprain

"High" ankle sprains typically occur when the foot is forced upward and outwardly. Syndesmotic sprains are also subject to degrees of trauma but they may effect activity differently than joint sprains especially when it comes to putting weight on the ankle. Severe sprains, such as serious second degree and third degree sprains of the syndesmotic ligament, may allow for the bottoms of the tibia and the fibula to spread apart which is called diastasis. Sprains of this type are serious in terms of rehabilitation time but can usually be treated similarly to typical ankle sprains. With regard to surgery it will depend on the stability of the injured ankle and whether or not diastasis is present.

Dear MendMeShop,

My name is Bridget, and I am the one that received the Inferno Wrap that Doug purchased. I had stepped off of my front steps early on Halloween day, I missed the entire bottom step somehow.... and seriously rolled my ankle. I am a avid runner and try to get somewhere between 25-40 miles in a week depending on what I am training for at the time. My ankle swelled like a balloon and stayed that way for 2 solid months! I was unable to run, and believe me I tried. I could barely even walk. I was unable to go to the Dr. because of some insurance issues that were being delt with, so I got on the Internet and started doing some research to see what I could do... That is when I came across your web site. I am not gonna lie, I didn't believe it. I thought it all sounded to good to be true. I actually thought about it for a week before I decided to give it a try, the $ back guarantee is what the deciding factor was for me. OMG!!! I have nothing but praise for your products! It is an amazing thing, it only took 1 week for the swelling to go down and stay down! I was back on the trails, running again on the 8th day! I am continuing to use the Inferno Wrap on a regular basis, thank you so much for getting me back out where I belong... running the Trails.
