Meniscal Injuries

Managing Meniscal Injuries: Treatment Options And Recovery Strategies

Meniscal Injuries are the type of injury that allows damage to the menisci, which are C-shaped pieces of cartilage located at the knee joints. The knee joints consist of three parts femur ( thigh bone ), tibia ( thigh bone ), patella, and the menisci knee cap, which provide a cushion in between these bones to allow stability, adsorption and distribution forces between the movement and functions and help in the proper range of motion. 

There are mainly two menisci in every knee.  The medial meniscus is located on the inner side, and the lateral meniscus is located on the outer side. Meniscus injuries occur due to several factors, which include trauma,  age factors, wear & and tear,  degradations and many others. Sudden twists of the pivotal joint movements of the knee joints often cause traumatic meniscal injuries. 

Symptoms of Meniscal Injuries 

The symptoms of meniscal injuries vary depending on their stability and their wear and tear location. Common symptoms include stiffness, swelling, and no functions in the knee joints. Some people may also experience difficulty straightening or bending the knee due to this meniscal injury. In the chance of severity, the torn meniscus causes instability in the knee, which causes so much pain during the movement of the knee.

Treatment of Meniscal Injuries 

The treatment options for medicinal injury depend on different factors, such as where the wear and tear occurred, the patient's overall health condition, and surgeon preferences.  In some cases, following conservative measurements and consulting the doctor are mandatory to cure the injury and recover from meniscal injury. 

Some safety measures to heal without much medical attention include ice, elevation compression pain medications and physical therapy exercises to improve strength, flexibility and excellence in a range of motion. 

However, in a case where these symptoms have not made a good impact on the knees, surgical intervention is the most mandatory thing to be followed. In meniscal injuries, a meniscectomy is a type of surgical intervention in which damaged portions of the meniscus are removed.
