Dear MendMeShop,

I'm usually a bit of a skeptic but I am absolutely amazed at the improvement in my knee. I was diagnosed with Lateral tendonitis - never knew it could be so painful. I actually started walking again yesterday and look forward to getting back to Bootcamp soon. Thank you for an amazing product!

Medial Collateral Ligament Sprain (MCL Sprain)

The Medial Collateral Ligament otherwise more commonly referred to as the MCL is the ligament found on the inside of the knee. This important ligament of the knee joins the end of the femur (thigh bone) and the top of the tibia (shin bone). It is tightly drawn when the leg is straight thereby preventing the 'opening up' of the knee joint.

Causes
This Medial Collateral Ligament is very commonly injured while participating in sports such as football and skiing. It often accompanies an ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) injury. When the leg is hit from the outside of the knee joint, the knee tends to twist and buckle thus causing the ligament to over-stretch or tear. The cartilage or meniscus of the knee may also be torn during an MCL injury. Clipping during a football game is an excellent example of how this type of injury may occur.

MCL Sprain can be healed with MendMeShop Ultrasonic Device.

Minor tears may not be noticed immediately but rather appear anywhere from a few hours to 2 days later. Common symptoms 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 MCL ligament may also make the knee feel unstable and leave the individual unable or unwilling to walk.

Treatment
Immediate treatment of the MCL injury include 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. Light compression of the knee joint with the use of an elasticized support bandage may also be directed by your care giver.

Very occasionally an individual with an MCL injury will require surgery. More often though, individuals with mild or moderate tearing will wear a hinged knee brace and will be advised to seek physiotherapy treatment. A common technique used in the treatment of MCL 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.

Not only does ultrasound aid in the duration of healing, but it helps to prevent long term complications. Pain, scar tissue, lack of mobility and arthritis are some of the more common long term complications from an MCL injury. By speeding up the healing process with ultrasound, less scar tissue is formed, swelling and pain are reduced.

For those who suffer from long term complications of existing Medial Collateral Ligament injuries, ultrasound can help. Ultrasound therapy can help to break up scar and fibrous tissue in the affected area. For those with chronic pain and inflammation ultrasound will help to reduce these and free the individual.

Prevention

Success
Gradually increasing the intensity of exercise and being aware of the movement of the knee are key factors in reducing the risk of injury to the knee. Regular exercise and maintaining good physical condition, particularly when participating in sports such as football and skiing are also excellent ways to avoid injury. Avoiding sudden movements such as twisting or overstretching of the joint will help keep the knee stable.

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.

Dear MendMeShop,

Dear Mend Me Shop, I was suffering from the beginning stage of plantar fasciitis and the freezie ice compression and the inferno wrap were a great help to me!
