Best Knee Braces For Running With A Meniscus Tear

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.

Our knit material and special massaging cushioned pads makes for a comfortable brace to complement your recovery process.

HOW TO TREAT PAIN CAUSED BY A TORN MENISCUS?

  • Regularly apply ice packs in the first few days to the affected area to help reduce swelling and pain.
  • Stretching and strengthening exercises, especially for your quadriceps muscles. Your doctor can recommend a physical therapist to teach you what to do.
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications and analgesic may be helpful.
  • Severe or persistent pain should be investigated by your doctor.
  • For more advanced meniscus injuries, surgery may be recommended by your doctor.

Play it safe: Consult a doctor if you experience unusually intense and persistent tendonitis pain.
