Dear MendMeShop,

I just love the Knee Inferno wrap. I honestly feel it has helped my recovery tremendously. I also get acupuncture treatments for it as well as message. Honestly though, the knee Inferno wrap plays the biggest role in my treatment. You are right in saying it's not an overnight miracle cure, but it sure accelerates the process. The fact that you guys are there for us every step of the way matters as well. Your company is wonderful and that's a rarity these days. I cannot say that my knee is totally healed yet, but definitely it has improved greatly and has turned a corner. If I did not have the inferno wrap, I seriously doubt my return to work would have been that speedy. Three weeks with the Inferno Wrap and I was back to work.

Preventing a Meniscus Injury:

It is always better to prevent meniscus injuries rather than try to fix them after they happen, however that is not always the situation. In any case, there are a number of things you can do to keep your knee and leg healthy and prevent further damage.

strength and flex your knee joint

To stabilize your knee joint and increase your range of motion, maintain and build the strength and flexibility of your quadriceps, hamstrings, calf muscles and hip flexors. Strengthening and stretching exercises will help to keep your knee strong and supple, which will prevent further injuries (leg lifts with light weight or exercise bands are very beneficial). Proprioceptive (balancing) exercises will help retrain your position or "joint sense".

A regular exercise program that focuses on total body fitness and includes low-impact aerobic activity such as walking, swimming or biking will also strengthen your knee and keep you healthy overall.

Choose appropriate equipment for your body type and size; for example wear shoes that fit your feet and are suitable for your sport. Use knee supports as required during activities (bracing/strapping/taping your knee for extra support).

Avoid doing too much to soon to give your body an opportunity to build up its endurance. This is especially important when participating in a new activity. Gradually increase your participation to prevent overstraining your muscles. Always warm up and cool down your leg muscles before and after working them, and learn the proper form and techniques for your activity.

If you are suffering from knee or meniscus pain, listen to your body and decrease, modify and/or avoid any activities or motions that cause pain and irritation (twisting, squatting, kneeling, heavy lifting, climbing and running, walking on uneven terrain). If you are required to perform these motions at work or play and cannot avoid them, make sure you take frequent breaks and rest your knee to prevent fatigue.

Ultrasound therapy

Ultrasound therapy can be performed at home with a portable ultrasound device on a regular basis. If you have symptoms or are recovering from a meniscus injury, using ultrasound on a regular basis before your activity will help relax the tissue and prepare your knee and leg muscles for action, reduce scar tissue, and help diminish pain and inflammation after your activity.

If you suffer from mild inflammation or pain after certain activities or movements, implement URICE - use ultrasound therapy when you complete the activity, then rest your knee, apply a cold pack, compress and elevate your knee. You can also use anti-inflammatory medication for pain if required.

If you have been given a treatment plan by your health professional, make sure you adhere to it to ensure pain free living. In general, people who are committed to their therapies and exercises will have the best medical outcomes.

Dear MendMeShop,

My husband, who is in his 50's was feeling pain in his Achilles on one foot. He kept walking on it till it became inflamed and impossible to walk on. My husband sought out help from our Chiropractor, the treatments were very expensive and he could only get one a day. He couldn't walk on it at all. Just moving any part of his body caused him great pain. Going to see anyone would prove unworkable. I couldn't get him in the car as he could not even move his leg. I researched Achilles tendon injury on line. I found an article about the Inferno Wrap. The cost would be far less than trips to the Doctor. It was only a matter of days before he was able to get out of bed once we started the treatments as recommended. It was a week and he was off the crutches. He was able to get back to work after three weeks. He still uses the inferno boot when his Achilles feels sore. I am very grateful for your products and highly recommend them.
