Meniscus Injury Treatment, like most other treatments will depend on the assessment made by the Orthopedic on the severity of the condition. In addition, the age and the level of activity of the person are also given consideration before finalizing the treatment. Placing ice packs and wrapping up with elastic bandage are some of the milder forms of treatment of the knee for meniscus injury. Physical therapy is another way to relieve the knee pain. But if meniscus surgery is the only solution in the opinion of the doctor, it will be done to complete the treatment. There is an alternative repair surgery also done in some cases for meniscus-affected knees. The time taken for the surgery itself may not be very long, but the overall treatment and the duration to return back to normal levels of activities will widely vary from case to case. The variables include how complicated the surgery was and if it is a repair surgery, it takes even longer. The patient can start walking in about 2 to 7 days after surgery to treat Meniscus. The overall time taken to return to all forms of activity can be 4 to 6 weeks or even 3 to 6 months respectively. If the surgery is performed well and the follow through therapies are followed, the person can return to normal activities, including sports.
