Dear MendMeShop,

I ordered an Achilles/Ankle “Inferno Wrap” and a Back/Hip “Inferno Wrap” which arrived within 48 HOURS. These wonderful products produced remarkable results from their very first application! Day One: Initial Treatment @ 9:00 AM on the Low Setting for 20 minutes Second Treatment (same day) @ 12:00 NOON for 20 minutes Third Treatment (same day) @ 3:00 PM for 20 minutes Fourth Treatment (same day) @ BEDTIME for 20 minutes “Rinse & Repeat” every day now… My range of movement and the reduction of discomfort in my Achilles Tendons improved by at least 90% IMMEDIATELY. As for my chronic lower-back trouble that is the long-term result of a “minor exercising mishap” 45 years ago, which randomly flares up on a regular basis.. I am now enjoying Instant Relief thanks to the application of my Back Inferno Wrap whenever I experience any episode of neuro-muscular discomfort !!! I’ll keep you posted as time goes by, but I wanted to say right away, “THANK YOU so much for everything”!

What Causes a Meniscus Injury?

Although knee injuries are more common in women than men, men experience more meniscus injuries and tears (the ratio is approximately 2.5 males: 1 female). This is believed to be due to men's participation in more aggressive sports and manual activities. The peak incidence of meniscal injuries for males is between 31 - 40 years, whereas for females peak incidence is between 11 - 20 years.

The 2 most common causes of meniscus injuries are acute trauma to the knee and degeneration of the knee joint. Occupations such as mining or carpet-laying (where you spend a lot of time in the squat position), or participation in contact sports or repetitive stress activities (such as running and skiing) are prone to meniscus injuries.

Aggressove sports can lead to meniscal injuries

Acute or traumatic meniscus damage can result from forceful rotating of a straight or bent knee while your foot is firmly planted and bearing weight, or from hyper flexion or hyperextension of your knee (flexion or extension beyond your knees normal range of motion). These injuries are experienced most frequently in activities such as rugby, football, baseball, soccer, basketball or racquet sports when you twist or pivot on your knee, or slow down too quickly. The result will generally be a partial or complete medial meniscus tear. This type of tear generally affects athletes or those under 40 years of age. A medial meniscus tear will frequently occur along with other injuries such as an MCL or ACL tear. The combined injuries are seen most often in contact sports, when an athlete gets hit on the outside of a bent knee. A lateral meniscus tear will result more often from a knee that is bent (flexed) excessively and experiences full weight bearing, while the thighbone is turning outward; seen in sports such as skiing. It can also be injured in collisions that involve deep knee bends.

Wear and tear over time can form degenerative meniscus tear

Degeneration of the knee joint involves weakening of your tissues with age, which results from small repetitive movements such as squatting or pivoting positions, or a minor meniscus injury that never healed properly. When you are young your meniscus is very flexible and pliable (like a new rubber tire), as you get older it becomes less flexible and more brittle, it also develops cracks in it (like those seen in an aged car tire). Your articular cartilage and meniscus deteriorate as you age, which can eventually lead to a degenerative tear without any major trauma. You will also experience a 20% decrease in blood supply to your menisci by age 40 due to weight bearing over time; this inhibits your body's ability to heal itself. This wear and tear over the years can lead to an osteoarthritis condition. Destructive chemical substances are then released in the joint cavity, which further breakdown these collagen fibers. Approximately 60% of people over 65 years of age will experience some form of degenerative meniscus tear.

Active seniors can experience some from of degenerative degenerative meniscus tear

A piece of the meniscus can loosen or tear due to the above causes and move about in your joint. When the tear interferes with normal knee mechanics, the torn fragment of meniscus can catch, lock, or slip between the femur and tibia as your knee moves. As it tries to work its way out, you will normally experience pain, weakness and/or immobility.

How to Order

A Discoid meniscus occurs when you are born with a more flat, disc shaped meniscus rather than a crescent shaped, wedge meniscus. It is generally found in the lateral meniscus and in kids less than 11 years of age. The symptoms associated with a discoid meniscus can range from very mild to continuous clicking, snapping, buckling and/or locking of the knee joint, decreased range of motion, joint pain and tenderness, and atrophied quadriceps (muscles wasting away). The meniscus will often change to a c-shape with maturity and kids/teens will grow out of their symptoms; however failure of normal development can be experienced.

Dear MendMeShop,

I had suffered (really suffered!) with Achilles Tendonitis for almost two years, and spent much time and money going to orthopedists and finally a podiatrist. That last visit made me feel there was no hope, but I decided to go on the internet and I found the MendMeShop. I read about the Inferno Wrap, and decided to call and ask more. I figured that the cost of this would be a drop in the bucket to what I'd already spent in co-pays over the past couple of years. The person at the MendMeShop was knowledgable and very helpful. She advised me on a plan of use, and offered to be a continuing resource for me. Once I received the Inferno Wrap I followed the advice I'd been given. I used it on my elevated ankle/foot three times a day for 20 minutes each time. (First applying ice for 10 minutes when my ankle was particularly swollen.) Within 3 months of faithful use, I was able to walk without pain. What a relief! And now whenever I feel the slightest indication of discomfort, I use the Inferno Wrap for 20 minutes -- sometimes twice a day. I have recommended the MendMeShop to friends without hesitation. I feel so appreciative that I found the website on the internet. I also told my primary physician about it so that he could tell other patients to try this wonderful resource. Today I'm writing from Georgia where I am visiting friends and family. Guess what I packed to come with me?! Right! My Inferno Wrap! You all met and exceeded - not just my expectations, which were pretty modest, but my hopes at a time when I felt almost desperate! My best wishes, Chris Kelsey
