About Meniscus Injuries

We consider ourselves to be highly experienced when it comes to the management and treatment of Meniscus Injuries. This is due to our broad range of research based techniques.
Within the knee contains cartilage that helps to provide support and cushioning for the knee joint. The cartilage is also known as the knees meniscus. The healing ability and rate will depend on where the meniscus tear is located. If the tear is more on the inside of the knee, there is a low likelihood that healing will occur due to poor blood supply.
It is for this reason that after a meniscus tear occurs, physiotherapy is required to improve the pain and treat the meniscus.
You may feel pain in the knee when walking, walking uphill, descending stairs, twisting the knee and squatting. Clicking, popping and locking is also something one can experience.
Techniques performed in our clinic to assist patients with meniscus tears include specific muscle strengthening around the knee and hip, and low intensity ultrasound therapy for chondrocyte (cartilage cell) formation.
