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

slight pain returning??
I injured my knee last year and have been nursing it myself. I had x-rays and there was no bone damage. I assumed it was my meniscus and/or some issues with my ligaments/tendons. I can sometimes feel minimum grinding in my knee and lateral movements (like going up and down stairs) is still not as comfortable as I would like it to be. My knee is ok for the most part. Still active on it and I am very much mobile.
However. I recently started the BFST treatment and I have noticed slight soreness in the knee after each session. Almost like my knee is getting weaker... Is this normal?
It worries me a bit because I often go to the gym after a treatment and knee feels slightly vulnerable due to its soreness/tenderness.
Also, the warm tingling sensation last the entire treatment, is that normal?
Can you provide any tips on treatment? Like best times to treat? When to ice?
Re: slight pain returning??
Discomfort may be experienced during or after a BFST treatment. This generally occurs if swelling or inflammation is present, as the body is focusing on symptom management and isn?t ready for extra blood flow to be delivered to the area of injury and begin the healing and recovery phase.
Discomfort (or heat) may be experienced after first use of the BFST or if the injury is aggravated or reinjured ? this would be an indication that Cold therapy is required (ie. King Brand ColdCure or an ice pack) to target inflammation or swelling, before resuming BFST treatments again. Moving up BFST levels too quickly without acclimatizing may also create heat or discomfort in the targeted area ? moving back down in level should resolve this.
Improvement of blood flow should alleviate stiffness, soreness and improve range of motion as healing takes place. Also, having optimized nutrient-rich blood will speed up recovery and healing times.
In terms of experiencing a warm tingling sensation, this is perfectly normal. This feeling may decrease or disappear in time, as your body acclimatizes to the improvement of blood flow in and around the area you are targeting.
If you believe your symptoms of inflammation and swelling are under control and that you are using the BFST correctly, and still have concerns about what you?ve been experiencing . We would recommend you cease BFST treatments (in case there?s an underlying health condition) and contact us toll free 1844-400-2525 to discuss this matter in more detail.
In terms of treatment tips, we recommend using the BFST 3-4 times a day, spaced out across the course of the day, for example : first thing in the morning, at lunchtime, late afternoon/early evening and another last thing at night.
In between your planned BFST treatments, you should use Cold therapy to target any pain flare-ups and after any movements you feel might have aggravated your injury, then should follow up by a BFST treatment after your body has returned to its regular temperature - to get back on track with the healing and recovery process.
It is also always best to aim to do activity (like going to the gym or walking) soon after a BFST treatment and to follow activity with Cold therapy, then a BFST treatment.
