Meniscus Injury Treatment
Here's How to Heal:
In order to get your torn meniscus fully healed as fast and effectively as possible, you need to treat the injury. Painkillers and anti-inflammatories DO NOT help you heal and can even make the healing process longer, and having surgery will mean long-term consequences and prevent full recovery. Instead, you need to alleviate the swelling and discomfort, then promote bloodflow to the area to heal the injury.
It's recommended you use ColdCure® and BFST® (Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy) wraps. Both are high quality medical devices that set the industry standard for injury treatment.
Here's what you need to do:
- Use ColdCure® to reduce the pain and reduce the swelling
- Use BFST® every day to improve blood flow and repair the damaged tissue
- Avoid putting strain on your meniscus
BFST® Repairs the Tissue
Using advanced technology, Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) medical devices promote increased circulation, accelerating the healing process to the next level. Blood flow is crucial to fast tissue repair! Use BFST® to heal the tissue after your swelling.Click here for more information!
ColdCure® Treats the Pain
ColdCure® cold packs relieve pain and reduce inflammation after your injury. These wraps can hold the cold longer than other cold wraps using RigiGel® technology which also distributes cold evenly over the injured area. Cold is much safer than ice, which is too cold and can burn skin.Click here for more information!
Certified Medical Devices
ColdCure® and BFST® Meniscus Wraps are FDA registered, and are certified safe medical treatments for meniscus tears. You can rest easy knowing you are using only professional treatment to heal your injury.
The Ultimate Solution
Recovery can be easy if you use the right treatment. Simply follow these steps to get you and your injury on the road to fast recovery.
Step One: Reduce the Swelling
To reduce the inflammation or pain following an meniscus tear, use a ColdCure® Meniscus Wrap for the best post-injury treatment. Before you can start healing, you need to make sure the swelling is gone. ColdCure® wraps, unlike other gels, hold their shape and spread the cold out evenly over the damaged meniscus. Cold is better than using ice, which burns the skin and is uncomfortable to wear. ColdCure® wraps are stored in the fridge and keep that cold in longer than other wraps, so you can wear it without switching out gels as often.
Step Two: Heal the Tissue
In order to heal quickly, you need to take action to accelerate the healing process. One of the best ways to do this is to improve your circulation. Better blood flow means that your body can deliver oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood to the tear in the meniscus, for the fastest treatment. A Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) Meniscus Wrap offers the best solution, as it penetrates deep under the skin to the damaged tissue.
REMEMBER: If you are still experiencing swelling, you need to reduce the inflammation before using BFST® to heal the tissue. Using heat or BFST® before the swelling in your knee has gone down will only make your injury worse. Do not combine cold and hot treatments at the same time.
Comfortable High Quality Wraps
Both wraps uphold a high standard of comfort. Each is made of soft, high quality Neoprene and crafted specifically for meniscus tears. These devices are shaped with your injury in mind. The ColdCure® gel itself is no ordinary design. It is made to surround the entire injured area, enveloping it with the pain relieving power of RigiGel®. The BFST's® patented Energy Web® is also designed to provide coverage across the whole injury, and improves circulation throughout the area.
These wraps work great for:
- Meniscus Tears
- Post-surgery meniscus recovery
- Knee pain and swelling
- Other Knee injuries

Re: Baker Cysts
I've had a Bakers cyst behind my right knee for over six years. The golf-ball size cyst has remained constant during this period except when it occasionally swells slightly, usually following leg exercises like walking, jogging, biking and plyometric jumping exercises. I've never done anything to treat it short of laying off leg workouts when my knee becomes too stiff and inflexible. Its never very painful, but can become extremely uncomfortable.
Will BFST still heal this longstanding Bakers cyst ?
Re: Baker Cysts
Hi Drrandy51, Thanks for your enquiry.
As you've had the Bakers Cyst for so long, you may want to follow-up with your doctor to find out why the cyst has remained a constant golf-ball size. Often times medical professionals may recommend intervention for Bakers Cysts (such as drainage of fluid), plus usage of cold / ice to reduce inflammation and swelling behind the knee is usually also recommended.
- If you tend to notice an increase in swelling post-activity, you will likely benefit from using cold therapy when this occurs; to help reduce the new swelling and inflammation.
- Cold therapy may even help you right now, to target the underlying inflammation you may not necessarily be aware of behind the knee.
A Bakers Cyst is usually a symptom of an underlying condition in the knee itself (often a meniscus tear or injury). As far as the BFST is concerned, this can be used to harness faster recovery and healing by improving blood flow and circulation - it doesn't matter how new or mature the issue is. We advocate for using the BFST when underlying inflammation and swelling is under control. Using the BFST too soon (with these symptoms) won't cause any harm or further injury, however, the body would become quite hot during a treatment - signifying that the blood flow is being overstimulated and there's nowhere for the additional blood flow to be delivered to.
- The BFST isn't a heating pad, therefore, heat is not a desirable effect. The sensation experienced during a BFST treatment should be a very minor warming (and some people feel a bit of tingling); this is how your body is responding to improvement of blood flow in the targeted area.
