If you've played footy, netball or any other sport that's got you moving a lot, it's likely you or one of your team-mates has strained or torn their meniscus. Throwing off your stability, causing pain with almost every movement of the knee, especially on stairs, and taking a long time to heal, meniscus issues often need more than just rest.
Wearing a knee brace for meniscus tear is perfect for your long-term recovery, allowing you to get back into action safely and move with confidence. The right fit for a knee meniscus brace is easy with our measure and buy system, so go right ahead to get your knee supported!
Why can't I just let it heal naturally?
Your meniscus is in a very important but unfortunate position in the knee. While it helps to stabilise and soften movement, reducing pressure between the bones, it also is in an area with incredibly low blood supply. Combined with the matter that it's made of, the meniscus often has incredible trouble healing on it's own. Using a brace to reduce the pain and inflammation and assist your recovery is the best option for this type of knee issue.
