HOW CAN I RELIEVE PAIN AND DISCOMFORT CAUSED BY A TORN MENISCUS?
The meniscus is one of the most common knee structures to be injured. It’s role is to provide support as a shock absorber, particularly to rotational forces.
For the younger population, damage to the meniscus can result from trauma, either from sports or recreational activities that involve high impact twisting motions. In the older adult, the tear could be from age-related degradation of the meniscus.
Meniscus tear pain can be debilitating and keep elite athletes on the sidelines for weeks to months. It is important to get on top of these issues as soon as they arise to avoid further muscle imbalance, weakness or a progression in the injury.
A good knee brace for an advanced meniscus tear is the GenuTrain S, which is a hinged knee support that provides extra stability.
