Knee Meniscus Tear Treatment

Meniscal tearA common knee injury, this condition refers to the meniscus in your knee getting torn. The meniscus is a rubbery disc that protects your knee and keeps it steady by balancing your weight across it. It can get torn by making a sudden twist or turn, especially when you have kept your foot planted and your knee bent. It can also happen as a result of wear and tear caused by age, or by playing sports or lifting heavy objects.

Meniscal tears can be minor, moderate or severe. Each category comes with its own set of symptoms. Minor tears result in slight swelling and pain. Moderate tears can cause:

  • Pain in the center or side of the knee
  • Swelling that worsens over three days
  • Stiff knees with restricted bending ability
  • Sharp pain when squatting or twisting

The symptoms of severe tears include:

  • The knee popping, locking or catching
  • Inability to straighten the knee
  • A wobbly feeling in knee

  • Range of motion, strengthening and stretching exercises
  • Acupuncture & dry needling for pain management
  • Bracing to unload the joint
  • Return to sport program
  • Pain relieving medications
  • Rest & icing
