Rebound Meniscus tear with Best Treatments

What is a meniscus tear?

A meniscus is a piece of cartilage that functions as the connecting tissue between the thigh bone (femur) and shin bone(tibia). Each knee point has two menisci. The menisci keep your knee steady. Performing activities that involve aggressive twisting and pivoting of knee puts you at a risk of a torn meniscus.

Non - surgical treatment

RICE protocol is effective for most sports-related injuries. It stands for 

Rest- Take rest from the activity 

Ice-Usage or cold pack several times a day 

Compression-To prevent additional swelling and blood loss wear an elastic compression bandage 

Elevation-To reduce swelling, put your leg up higher than your heart 

Non-surgical treatment also includes intake of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines. 

Surgical Treatment

In Knee arthroscopic surgery, a miniature camera is inserted through a small incision into the knee. This provides a clear view of the inside knee. The doctor trims or repairs the tear by inserting surgical instruments through other portals. 

Partial Meniscectomy: The damaged meniscus tissue is trimmed away in this procedure 

Meniscus repair: This can be done by suturing the torn pieces together.
