Dear MendMeShop,

I still am amazed at how the inferno wrap helped! I don't remember if I told you this, but about 20 years ago I had orthoscopic surgery on my knee. It never got back to normal. Lost a lot of flexibility in that knee and suffered with pain mostly at night. Thought it was arthritis. It felt out of joint and I was painful to straighten it at night. And when I would get up out of bed or after sitting for awhile I would have to "ease" into position to be able to walk on it. Last fall, I injured my knee in the garden. It was very painful to bear weight on it. In fact I was scooting around the house in an office chair on wheels. The doctor said the 'popping' in my knee was due to out-of-place ligament from the orthoscopic surgery. I started using the inferno wrap and ice wrap alternatively and still can't believe how fast my knee heeled. I no longer use either. About a week ago I started doing water aerobics and it feels soooo good! I do have a lot of arthritis, and it's bone-on-bone. However the pain in straightening that knee is no longer there! All those years of pain seem more like a bad dream! It's wonderful to be able to get up from sitting and move freely! Now my goal is to strengthen my knee with exercise. Thank you so much for the wraps!

Posterior Cruciate Ligament Sprain (PCL Sprain)

Knee diagram

Ligaments are vital structures that connect bones to other bones within the body. The Posterior Cruciate Ligament - otherwise more commonly referred to as the PCL - is a ligament in the knee joining the back of the shinbone (lower leg) to the inside end of the thigh bone (upper leg). It crosses over the Anterior Cruciate Ligament forming and "X" inside the knee. The purpose of this ligament is to aid in stabilization of the front and back movements of the knee.

The Posterior Cruciate Ligament is stronger than some of the other knee ligaments and therefore less prone to injury than these other ligaments. When an individual injures this ligament there is not the popping sound commonly heard with an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury.

Causes

Knee injuries can happen with a sudden twising of the joint.

PCL injuries generally occur as the result of over stretching or pulling of the ligament. It may be injured due to direct physical trauma to the tibia (shinbone) when the knee is bent thereby over stretching the ligament. Something as simple as missing a step also is common among knee injuries.

Symptoms of a PCL Sprain or tear include swelling, lack of motion, and knee pain. Individuals have also experienced that while they can walk on their knee, it is not completely stable.

Treatment

Immediate treatment of the PCL injury include elevation of the knee and the application of cold or ice packs. Rest and minimal use of the injured knee are also important to healing. Light compression of the knee joint with the use of an elasticized support bandage may also be directed by your care giver.

Because of the location of the PCL, surgery is generally not a recommended treatment for this type of injury. More often though, individuals with PCL tearing require physiotherapy. A common technique used in the treatment of PCL injuries by physiotherapists is therapeutic ultrasound. Ultrasound therapy on a Sprained PCL ligament is technique that has been in existence around the world for many decades. Ultrasound can quickly reduce pain and swelling in the knee by increasing blood supply to the affected area, engergizing local tissue and thus stimulating nutrient absorption on the cellular level. All of these combined effects truly increase the rate of healing for a damaged PCL ligament.

There are limited options for treatment of the PCL ligament due to its location, but the therapeutic energy of ultrasound WILL penetrate deep into the knee reaching this interior ligament greatly enhancing its healing rate and immediately decreasing inflammation in the area.

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

Success

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

Prevention

To reduce the risk of injury to the knee regular exercise is an important component. Gradually increasing the intensity of exercise and being aware of the movement of the knee are key factors as well. 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.
