WHY SHOULD I WEAR A KNEE BRACE TO GET BACK INTO RUNNING AFTER A MENISCUS TEAR?
Meniscus tears can be extremely painful and are commonly caused due to increased friction between the bones of the knee joint.
Meniscus has shock-absorbing properties, however excessive exercising and running can cause tears in the meniscus tissue.
However, many runners and elite athletes tend to have minimal symptoms from meniscus tears and lesions. The Journal of Arthroscopic and Related Surgery published a study showing many professional basketball players could play with meniscus tears without any symptoms.
If you are planning to get back into running after a meniscus tear, using sports support and braces can aid in faster healing of the meniscus tear as they stabilise the knee joint and allow greater range of motion.
They can prevent relapse of injury and the feeling of instability you might experience with a torn meniscus.
Bauerfeind’s high-quality supports or braces with medical-grade compression are designed to provide pain relief and stability.
