Torn Meniscus and Knee Wrap
« on: February 26, 2016, 02:14:22 PM »
Unfortunately, I did not know of this product when I first tore my left knee cartilage a few years ago...and the docs took out a 3rd of my medial meniscus. I am very active, run, play soccer, ski, and about 2 years later I tore some more cartilage in the same knee.  Docs said that they might have to cut some more out, or I could curtail activity and over a year or 2 there is a slight chance it could heal. Otherwise they ere going to put me on a "pain management" program of cortisone shots and anti-inflammatory's. 

I was not crazy about either option, so after a few minutes of research online I came up onto the Kingbrand website, read the product descriptions as well as the testimonials and decided to give it a try.  3-4 times daily I used the wrap...even at work, where I could fit it under my pants...and if you do it just right, that method seems to generate the most "warmth" without being overly tight. In about 4 weeks the sharp pain in my knee diminished. I did make the mistake thinking all is cured, and a game of soccer, with the running and sudden stops, re-aggravated the injury, so I was back to square one...but knew then I had to lay off for awhile.  So for the next 3 months I used the BFST knee wrap for its 20 min cycle, 3-4 times daily, and even though the pain went away after a month, I waited till the end of 3 months before engaging in some more running and sports...but did not return to full activity till about the 5th month. 

The next month (month 6) I went back to my orthopedic doctor, who did the same diagnostic tests on my knee that diagnosed my torn cartilage the previous year.  However, after he gave my knee a few twists and pulls, and no pain (unlike the year before) he said it seems my meniscus probably healed on its own.  I told him "not quite on its own" and described your knee wrap.  He seemed very interested and said he would go over to your website and take a look. Now I play soccer, ski, pain free, although I still get knee injections every 6 months because unfortunately I did have that original meniscus surgery years before and now there is that small gap.  But the Kingbrand knee wrap helped ensure that I can keep the rest of my cartilage, and hopefully avoid a future knee replacement.

I've recommended this product to my friends who have similar injuries in low blood-flow areas.
