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!

Lateral Collateral Ligament sprain (LCL sprain)

Knee diagram

The Lateral Collateral Ligament otherwise more commonly referred to as the LCL is the ligament found on the outside of the knee. This important ligament of the knee joins the end of the fibula, which is located on the outside of the tibia (shin bone), and the bottom outside surface of the femur (thigh bone). This ligament stabilizes the outside of the knee joint.

Common symptoms of an LCL stretch or tear include pain and swelling directly over the ligament. Bruising will often appear 1-2 days after the injury occurs. More serious tears or ruptures of the LCL ligament may also make the knee feel unstable or loose.

Causes

Heal your pain with ultrasound

An injury to the Lateral Collateral Ligament occurs when there is a stretch, tear, or partial tear to the ligament. A blow to the inside of the knee during any number of contact sports will result in pressure being placed in the inside of the knee joint. This pressure pushing inwards on the knee joint results in stress being placed on the ligament on the outside of the knee joint. This stress causes the stretch or tear.

It is also possible that and injury to the LCL will occur in conjunction with injury to other ligaments in the knee such as the ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament), MCL (Medial Cruciate Ligament), or PCL (Posterior Cruciate Ligament).

Treatment

Like most sprains or tears to a ligament, immediate treatment of the LCL injury includes the application of cold or ice packs to the affected area, and elevation of the knee. It is also important to allow the injured knee to rest.

Hinged knee braces and physiotherapy are the most common treatments for injuries to the ligaments of the knee including the LCL. A common technique used in the treatment of LCL injuries by physiotherapists is ultrasound. Ultrasound is a healing technique that has been in existence around the world for many decades. Ultrasound reduces swelling and pain in the knee. At the same time it also increases the blood supply to the affected area stimulating tissues and increasing the rate of healing.

Success

Pain, scar tissue, lack of mobility and arthritis are some of the more common long term complications from an LCL injury. By speeding up the healing process with ultrasound, less scar tissue is formed, swelling and pain are reduced. For those with existing long term complications, chronic knee pain, and inflammation, ultrasound will help to reduce these and free the individual.

BFST™ - Using Your Body's Natural Healing System

Inferno Wrap providing superior blood flow stimulation.

Your body can heal itself! In fact, your body starts healing itself the moment you are injured and it's the blood in your body that makes it all happen. Your blood is the transport mechanism for everything that is good inside you. It carries oxygen, nutrients, water and antibodies. Proper blood flow is essential to healing. Unfortunately, when you injure your body you stop moving and the swelling sets in. That means your vital blood flow can be reduced to a trickle! If you want to heal quickly, you need to keep your blood moving and that's where Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™, or BFST™, comes in.

Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™ promotes the flow of blood through the injured area without the need to exercise your already damaged tissue. You can really feel it work. Within moments of applying an Inferno Wrap™ you can feel the healing sensation and the increase in blood flow. During a treatment, and for quite some time after you finish, your injured area will experience increased blood flow even though your body is at rest. It's a soothing sensation and extremely effective. With BFST™ your injury is constantly being fed with healing, nutritious, oxygen and energy filled blood. This is exactly what your body needs to heal.

Ultrasound therapy is also a helpful tool for pain prevention of knee injuires, and having a portable ultrasound device at home can be a powerful and convenient treatment tool. If you have symptoms or are recovering from a knee related injury, using ultrasound on a regular basis before your activity or throughout the day will help relax your muscles, tendons and tissues, diminish pain and inflammation, soften scar tissue and contribute greatly to the healing of your injury.

If you suffer from mild inflammation or pain after certain activities or movements use ultrasound therapy when you complete the activity and then rest and elevate your area of injury. Limit the application of ultrasound to a couple of treatments per day (the manual will recommend treatment frequency depending upon the injury). In between ultrasound treatments, maximize your pain relief and injury recovery by using an Inferno™ Personal Therapy System. Proven Performance, Proven Relief - only found at MendMeShop.com.

Dear MendMeShop,

I just wanted to reply by saying that I love your products. I have purchased 2 wraps from you (Wrist Inferno and Ankle/Achilles Inferno) and they have worked for me better than I ever thought they would. I believe I completely healed my heel and I am still receiving treatments for my carpal tunnel. But your products are really wonderful. Thank You
