Dear MendMeShop,

Thank you for spending time answering my questions and concerns on the Knee Inferno Wrap and wrist products and how to use them. I appreciate that, and I am impressed with your company's personal availability to personally talk with customers. In a fast pace, seemingly no care, 'all out for my benefit' mentality in our society it is refreshing to know I can go on-line and there are people doing business who do care for their product and the people buying them.
I went on-line to find help in treating my very painful meniscus and other issues Arthroscopic surgery on my right knee, that were more severe that my left knee issues had been, so I could find help in speeding up my recovery and get back on my feet again. Having had the same surgery on my left knee only 6 months prior, I was not able to recover as fast as my left knee had not yet fully recovered enough to take the full load of both knees. The Dr. said nothing about recovery only that I could not even put toe weight on my right knee for 4 weeks. So, with my left knee still in recovery this made life extremely difficult. So much so, I had to go to a wheel chair so I would not ruin either of my knees or my back which is suffering from degenerative discs. My knee issues stem from aging and over-use over the years. They are just wearing out.
I am an active person and was not going to consign myself to a wheel chair for the rest of my life. I had no access to physical therapy treatments in my personal situation. So, I took the bull by the horns and got busy finding out what I could do to help myself recover faster and get back in action physically. And I found your company.
I started my personal quest on Internet, which is all I was able to do physically at the time, and found your company, MendMeShop.com. I read all your info and was impressed with what I read and felt comfortable that you were genuine and were out to help me fully recover. The fully guaranteed refund was a plus to me so that I would not spend a lot lf money for something that I would be stuck with and as well did me no good.
You also had a personal way to contact your company to discuss any concerns I might have in using it. You also had expedited mailing so that I could have your product in a few days so I could get started in my recovery. I was willing to pay the extra mailing cost to get the product faster. You really came through on your end and I had my Inferno Knee Wrap in just a few days. That really firmed up to me that you back up your claims about your product and that you truly cared about me and so I could get onto faster recovery sooner.
After receiving the Inferno Knee Wrap, I was having personal issues in how often to use the Knee Wrap and so I called you to help me with this. I felt that the knee wrap was helping me, but I was finding that I could not use it to the fullest degree the instructions mentioned. You helped me and told me to call you back. From your recommendations, I started experimenting on my own to see what would work for me and I found a workable solution for me personally. Each person is unique and what works for one person may not work for another. So, I recommend not giving up and returning this product until you find what works for you.
Because my knee issues are so severe, it will take longer than I want it to, but I am plugging away and using the Inferno Knee Wrap along with stationery bike exercise and I am seeing progress each day.
Thank you for being there when I needed help in recovery of Arthroscopic Knee Surgery. I appreciate you and your company.

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 kneešs 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.

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,

We are very pleased with the results we have both achieved with the Inferno back wrap and Inferno shoulder wrap. Great products.
