Use Your Body's Natural Healing System
To Help Your Meniscus Injury
Circulatory Boost & Why You Need It
Your body can heal itself! In fact, your body started healing itself the moment you injured your knee and it's the blood in your body that makes it all happen.
Your blood is the transport mechanism for everything that's good inside of you. It carries oxygen, nutrients and water.
Proper blood flow to your knee and meniscus 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.
Swelling, inflammation and lack of joint movement reduce the flow of blood to your injury. When you are talking about trying to increase the flow of blood to the meniscus, you are at a huge disadvantage since there is very little blood flow in the meniscus to begin with. This is one of the main reasons why meniscus tears persist over long periods of time.
Swelling and inflammation is your body responding to an injury. If you are experiencing pain and swelling in the very early stages of the injury (first 48 to 72 hours), the first step in a conservative treatment protocol would be to focus on reducing the discomfort by applying a Cold Compress or Ice Pack to the knee.
After a couple days of cold treatment, the swelling should come down - but know that this is a critical time! After the inflammation is gone it may feel like you can return to your regular sports, hobbies, exercise or other activities - but your knee (and surrounding tissue) is in a weakened state, unstable, and still injured. Even the slightest movement in the wrong direction can worsen the injury and increase the swelling yet again. Most "weekend warriors" and amateur athletes will start going back to what they were doing before they suffered from their meniscus injury, and that's where they get it wrong. Medical professionals know that the injury is still there even if the pain is gone.
Blood Flow - the natural healing process in your body - needs assistance for such injuries because blood flow is greatly restricted when you are immobile. When treating a meniscus injury or really any type of soft tissue injury (ie. tendinitis, muscle spasm, etc), an effective treatment will increase blood flow to the injury while the joint is immobile. This increase in blood flow will help maximize the body's own capability to heal itself. This is certainly true with a meniscus tear, as mobility is almost impossible (too painful) and the meniscus receives very little blood flow to start with.
Building strong healthy tissue is part of the healing process and needs to be dealt with asap to minimize your chance or re-injury or overcompensation injuries. You can help your meniscii during your recovery process by increasing blood flow in and around this area of the knee.
Getting rid of your swelling is the 1st, most important, step in your recovery process. Getting rid of swelling will reduce the amount of tissue damage happening and open up blood vessels so the soft tissue in your joint (bursae, tendons, muscles, ligaments) can receive more blood flow.
Increasing blood flow is then a priority to bring in all the essential elements needed for natural healing within your own body. An increased blood flow is key as this maximizes the bodys ability to self heal. An increase in blood flow accompanied with heat in soft tissue is known to help increase range of motion, and improve the flexibility of soft tissue - ensuring that the soft tissue recovery period does not last years.
Circulatory Boost = Accelerated Blood Flow To The Knee
Tto catalyze your body's ability to repair soft tissue, you need to keep your blood moving and that's where Circulatory Boost comes in. What is Circulatory Boost? It's a substantial increase in the flow of blood to soft tissue without the need to exercise your weakened joint. This is what the T•Shellz Wrap® does... you can really feel it work!
Have you seen what happens when you add water to a flower wilted from drought? An injured meniscus is much like a "wilted" flower; your body wants to heal the injury, but needs lots of nutrients to do it. Blood supports and facilitates new life by delivering healing nutrients and oxygen that are vital to your tissue. In addition, the blood carries away toxins and waste cleaning the area and healing it faster. Without a good supply of blood, your cartilage and surrounding tissue simply won't heal properly.
Both during and for a while after the treatment, your soft tissue will experience increased blood flow even though your body is at rest.
In order to get maximum blood flow to your meniscus and surrounding soft tissue, you need to help your body stimulate blood flow - you need BCBT. Circulatory Boost is the fast, easy and pain-free way to increase blood flow. It is a key part of a home conservative treatment plan.
Circulatory Boost = T•Shellz Wrap®
During a treatment, and for quite some time after you finish, the treated area will experience increased blood flow even though your body is at rest. It's a soothing sensation and extremely effective. With a T•Shellz Wrap® application, injured soft tissue is constantly being fed with healing, nutritious, oxygen and energy filled blood. This is exactly the fuel that soft tissue needs to heal.
With regular use of the
- Your pain will be reduced.
- Due to increased blood flow, soft tissue in the area will recover at an accelerated rate.
- The range of motion in the treatment area will increase *

How a T•Shellz Wrap® Works
A T•Shellz Wrap® is purely a Circulatory Boost workhorse! It is why we made them. They have been specifically designed for boosting blood flow, reducing inflammation and relieving pain from strained, spasming or damaged soft tissue (muscles, bursae, tendons, etc). Based on results from past clients, we are confident that they will be very beneficial for most of our future customers.
T•Shellz Wraps® contain an Energy Pad which is very pliable and will conform pretty much anywhere on the body. The Energy Pad emits a uniform wave of energy over the entire treatment area. This energy travels into soft tissue, stimulating blood flow that your body requires to help heal your injury. Blood flow is crucial to the healing process.
Increased Blood Flow = More Oxygen, More Nutrients and Less Toxins = Faster Healing
The unit plugs into a wall outlet to get its power. It has a special signal controller which can be set for 3 different power levels of application (3=High, 2=Medium, 1=Low). The cord is long enough that you can sit or lie comfortably and watch TV, read or surf the net while you're using it.
T•Shellz Wraps® - The Secret to Accelerated Blood Flow
The TShellz Wraps significantly increase bloodflow in soft tissue - period.
With regular use of the TShellz Wrap:
- Your pain will be reduced.
- Due to a substantial increase in blood flow, soft tissue in the area should recover at an accelerated rate.
- Due to increased warmth in soft tissue, the corresponding joint will have a larger range of motion and increased extensibility of collagen tissue. This should translate into a reduced rate of re-injury occurrance as soft tissue becomes more flexible.

Wrap the T•Shellz Wrap® around your knee, plug it in and let the Energy Pad do the work!
Why is our T•Shellz Wrap® a Plug-In Unit and not Battery Powered?
We field a lot of calls from our customers that want to know why our T•Shellz Wraps® don't come with a battery powered option. The simple answer is that our T•Shellz Wraps® use a lot of power. We tried looking at batteries, but we found that a high capacity (and high cost) lithium-ion battery would last barely long enough for an adequate treatment time - and then it would need to be recharged. The amount of power that our wrap uses over such a short span of time should really drive home the fact that our T•Shellz Wraps® are real, industrial strength treatment devices; currently, for us to provide a battery option for our wraps we would have to reduce the level of output (ie. treatment power) emitted from the wrap. The lower the energy output, the less effective the device will be which is why our TShellz Wrap units are plug-in units only.
Use a TShellz Wrap to
Deal with Scar Tissue & Reduce Re-Injury Risk!
Do you have a tender, swollen knee that's painful, sore and never seems to get better? This could be a sign that you have a lot of scar tissue in the knee. The growth of scar tissue is ultimately what causes stiffening in the knee, restricting movement and flexibility in your joint.
During the healing process your body will fill in soft tissue tears with dense, brittle tissue called "scar tissue". The human body will use scar tissue as a temporary solution and will try to build the scar tissue as fast as possible to heal a strain or tear in the knee.
Scar tissue in the knee could be one of the primary reasons why your knee just hasn't got better. Even when the inflammation is gone, scar tissue will still be there around your knee, reducing elasticity of soft tissue and the range of motion in your joint. On-going issues with scar tissue can even result in additional soft tissue injuries to nearby tendons, ligaments, muscles, joint instability, or surgery may be required to scrape out this scar tissue.
Scar tissue will form fast to deal with and temporarily fix any tissue instability (tearing) around your bursa, but working fast doesn't mean that the job's done right. When scar tissue forms it doesn't come together as neatly as regular (healthy) tissue would. Scar tissue fibers will lay down over top of your injury in a cluttered, messy and jumbled up way.
This is how scar tissue works. The scar tissue that forms to fix knee tears will be unorganized and won't line up properly with the healthy tissue surrounding the injury site. This scar tissue will also attach to everything in that area, including the surrounding healthy tissue as well. This can result in a long-term fusing together of the soft tissue that stiffens your joint - reducing your mobility, freezing up your knee, and making the area even more painful!
Time is the only way for your knee to heal, but by applying a conservative treatment protocol at home (rest, cold compression, an T•Shellz Wrap® and stretching routine), you can boost your body's soft tissue healing process, reduce scar tissue growth, reduce your risk of re-injury, reduce your risk of worsening the existing injury, and reduce the risk of secondary injury by overcompensation (ie. overtaxing your left hip and knee because of a minor meniscus tear in your right knee).
You can reduce scar tissue growth and inhibit further injury to your knee by increasing heat and blood flow to the damaged area. We feel that treating yourself at home with a T•Shellz Wrap® is the easiest and most effective way to help improve Range of Motion, reduce pain in the area, reduce risk of worsening the injury while helping minimize the growth of stubborn scar tissue.
The heat effect from the TShellz Wrap will also relax and lengthen soft tissue to help improve range of motion and prevent atrophy (wasting away) of surrounding tissue. This is why we recommend a T•Shellz Wrap® treatment before undergoing periods where there will significant exertion in the injury area. (ie. before going to work, shopping, etc.)
Overall, continued treatment with the TShellz Wrap is intended to relax and lengthen soft tissue while boosting your bodys ability to recover; this helps improve range of motion while combatting atrophy (wasting away) of the tendons and ligaments in the area. The TShellz Wrap is intended to reduce the chance of degenerative conditions by maximizing blood flow where it's needed most, preventing further damage, and dealing with scar tissue.
So, if you're really looking for the best home treatment options to reduce inflammation, increase range of motion and treat the source of pain quickly: a conservative treatment protocol including a rest, Cold Compress or Ice Pack, a T•Shellz Wrap® and a targeted stretch/exercise routine (assigned by your physician or PT) are what you need. This combination of therapies are, in our opinion, the best home based approach to maximizing your soft tissue injury recovery process.
When to use a Cold Compress or Ice Pack:
- 24 to 72 hours after your initial injury or when you first notice pain and swelling to stop tissue damage, relieve pain, and decrease swelling.
- After exercise, workouts or activity of any kind to prevent re-injury.
- Before and after surgery during rehabilitation to control pre and post-surgery pain and swelling.
- Anytime you feel your injured joint has been over-extended, over-worked, twisted, strained or sprained causing pain and swelling.
- Anytime you have swelling, sharp throbbing pain or inflammation.
- Any other situation where you need to draw the pain and inflammation out of the soft tissue in the knee.
When to use a T•Shellz Wrap®:
- When the swelling is down (usually after applying cold compression to the injury over 24 to 48 hr period).
- BEFORE getting out of bed in the morning. BEFORE going to bed at night.
- BEFORE exercise, workouts or activity of any kind to increase elasticity of ligaments,muscles & tendons and decrease chance of re-injury.
- AFTER surgery (once the skin wound has healed over) to increase blood flow in the area and minimize scar tissue growth at the surgery location.
- Anytime BEFORE you feel you might undertake activity that will put significant strain on the injury area.

This brings more nutrients and oxygen to the injured soft tissue, accelerating the body's own healing bio-mechanism.
Recovery from Meniscus Surgery
For Post-Surgery Recovery, cold is recommended by doctors to treat your pain in a natural, non-addictive way and to reduce swelling.
After the incision site has healed and initial inflammation has reduced, use our TShellz Wraps to stimulate blood flow in the area. Using the
TShellz Wrap as soon as pain & swelling has reduced following your surgery will help minimize scar tissue growth that forms as you heal. Treating scar tissue is arguably the most important step following surgery, especially in a joint as scar tissue growth will impact range of motion in the joint.
Leaving post-surgery scar tissue untreated can lead to stiffness, chronic pain, osteoarthritis or other chronic conditions. You're more likely to end up with another injury if you choose not to actively treat the scar tissue that develops in the area - this is why pretty much all post surgery recoveries involve physical therapy.
Circulatory Boost encourages more oxygen and nutrients to flow to the area to help your body in its recovery process. An increase in blood flow should also help improve the strength of soft tissue in the area.
