Conservative Meniscus Injury Treatments
To decrease inflammation and relieve pain for a chronic or diagnosed meniscus injury, adhere to the RCCE philosophy within the first 48 - 72 hours
- Rest your knee and limit your activity (if you are able to move your knee); you may want to use crutches or a cane to prevent weight bearing on the joint.
- Treat your knee with Cold 2-3 times/day for approximately 15 - 20 minutes at a time to reduce blood flow to your injured area.
- Compress your knee if possible by adding light pressure to minimize swelling (make sure the compress is snug, but not too tight as it could cause numbness, tingling or more pain).
- Elevate your knee above chest level to relieve the pressure from swelling and allow fluid to drain from your injured area.
Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™ improves tissue elasticity by promoting circulation (blood flow) and brings oxygen and nutrients to your injured knee area. This cleans your tissue by getting rid of cell waste products and allows your meniscus injury to heal correctly. If not treated properly injured tissue can heal with a weakened state, which can lead to scar tissue or calcification. Inferno Wrap® waves penetrate deep into your tissues, relax your muscles, decrease chronic pain, and accelerate your recovery rate so you can return to your daily activities as soon as possible.
BFST™ - Using Your Body's Natural Healing System
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.
