Dear MendMeShop,

I purchased this product recently for my plantar fasciitis. I've been using it about a week, and it has helped a lot with the pain when I first get out of my bed in the morning. I previously tried something else, that was more like a sock, that pulled the toes, and that only caused pain. This [night splint] is very comfortable to wear, and I love how much I'm able to adjust it! I would recommend this to anyone!

Surgery for Quadricep Injuries

There are always risk with surgery

Surgery is not frequently required for quadriceps injuries, and is usually reserved for complete tears, especially involving the quadriceps tendon. These surgeries generally require day surgery, although some will require an overnight stay.

A quadriceps tendon rupture repair involves making an incision on the front of your knee, over the top of your tendon. Sutures are then placed through your quadriceps tendon, threaded through drill holes in your patella and secured in place to bring the torn part of your tendon back to its proper location on your kneecap. After surgery, a cast or brace is generally used for approximately 6 weeks followed by rehabilitation.

A quadriceps muscle repair will fix a complete tear in the quadriceps muscle. This surgery involves making an incision on the front of the thigh over the torn quadricep and sewing or reattaching the 2 torn ends together.

Neurolysis of the femoral nerve involves breaking up adhesions (scar tissue) to free the nerve and relieve the pressure and pain from inflammation. Radio frequency, heat, or chemical injection, have also been used.

There are always some risks and/or complications involved with surgery such as infection, stiffness, suture reaction, failure of healing, adverse reactions to anesthesia, blood clotting, persistent pain and continued weakness. Please discuss these in more detail with your surgeon.

Surgery enforces a mandatory rest period, which is one of the main treatment recommendations for quadriceps injuries. Keep in mind the longer you have your symptoms prior to surgery, the longer it will take to recuperate. If you return to your activities too soon, you could cause permanent damage. You want to ensure the strength, flexibility and stability of your quadriceps muscles, before taking on too much.

Dear MendMeShop,

I recently ordered the Inferno Wrap and wanted to tell you how great it worked. I had a minor MCL tear and bursitis of the knee from a fall on ice in February, yes here in the Southern US, we do have ice sometimes and we don't know how to walk on it. Well, to make a long story short, I healed much faster and will recommend your product to others. Also, a representative from Mendmeshop called and asked how the product was working. This is unheard of in today's world. I never realized how long or involved a knee injury could be. Thank you for such a wonderful product.
