HOW CAN I RUN WITH A MENISCUS TEAR?
Meniscus tears can be identified by tearing sound accompanied with knee pain.
The meniscus tissue cushions the bones which make up the knee joint, thus running with a meniscus tear is not advisable.
It can exacerbate the injury and increase risk of long-term pain and developing osteoarthritis.
However, using a sports brace such as GenuTrain S Hinged Brace can aid in stabilizing the knee and allow greater range of motion of the knee joint.
The lateral support provided by the side struts and hinge joint improves your proprioception which can become impaired after a knee injury.
This helps in running with a meniscus tear. We advise you to seek professional medical help from a physiotherapist if you are experiencing severe pain in your knees when running.
CAN I WALK WITH A MENISCUS TEAR?
Many people with a torn meniscus can walk and complete daily exercises with no major restrictions.
It is important to see a medical specialist to get it treated right away so you can resume pain-free normal activity as soon as possible.
Bauerfeind’s high-quality supports or braces with medical-grade compression are designed to provide pain relief and stability.
Our knit material and special viscoelastic cushioned pads make for a comfortable brace to complement your recovery process.
