Torn Meniscus: What You Need To Know About It?

Torn Meniscus: What You Need To Know About It?

Your knees are one of the most vulnerable parts of your bodies. In case of strenuous or vigorous activities, knees are more prone to damage and injury than the other parts. Several of the knee tissues are fairly delicate and often are easily impaired. Among the other knee tissue injuries, meniscus tears are perhaps the most frequent. Meniscus is essentially a cartilage that protects and stabilizes the knee joints. However, an untoward twist or a strain can lead to a tear in the meniscus. Meniscus tears are a common phenomenon among athletes and sportsmen. They have been noted to be more recurrent in older individuals. 

Some of the early symptoms that indicate the onset of a meniscus tear are swelling and difficulty in bending or straightening of the leg. Sometimes a "locking sensation" in the knees also forebodes a torn meniscus. The inflammation potentially causes a lot of pain and irritation. While, it is fairly easy to ignore a meniscus tear for a normal knee injury, prolonged overlooking may only aggravate the pain and worsen the condition. The process of diagnosing a meniscus tear usually involves an MRI scan and an X-ray examination, over and above a detailed evaluation of the wound.

Treating meniscus tears vary according to the extent of the injury. Depending upon the location and the depth of the tear, various cures can be tried. The healing process, however, depends upon other allied factors such as age, level of physical activities and one's medical history. An external and minor injury is easily mendable. Whereas, graver injuries are resolved through surgical means. The other non-operative means include certain prescribed medicines and specific exercises. Some of the recommended ways of battling a meniscus tear can be enlisted as:

  1. Resting the knee by limiting the activities that involve excessive use of the legs or they may potentially strain the leg muscles.
  2. Applying ice pack can significantly bring relief to the swelling and the pain in the injured knee. Doctors advice regular use for a duration of at least 15 days.
  3. Compressing the knee using an elastic bandage or neoprene sleeve reduces the swelling in the knee.
  4. Prescribed medicines in the likes of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can be effective remedies for a meniscus tear. However, one must mandatorily consult a doctor before consuming such medicines.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. It is a very sensitive issue because it requires meticulous clinical examination by a doctor and then to correlate findings with mri investigation report. If there is a compression which is leading to a neurological deficit, then surgery is a good option in his case. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Do a massage on your back with oil named mahadhanwantarum taila. Make it warm and massage with someone's help. After that, give hit fomentation with a hot bottle or a cloth pack filled with salt and heated. Try to keep your posture erect always. Don't kick bike etc if possible for few days. Avoid jerks during journey. Increase calcium intake in form of warm milk, capsicum, paneer etc. When pain subsides, start practicing yoga asanas daily for back ache under guidance. That will prevent reoccurrence.

Hullo Doc! My wife was recently diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis (ra factor less than 10.4,crp 24.5,hb 9.7,esr 40, anti ccp antibodies 61.70). The pain becomes acute after evening. I consulted 2 docs - an orthopaedic surgeon and a physician- both senior specialists. The former gave 1. hydroxychloroquine 400 mg od, 2. Celecoxib 200 mg bd. The latter gave 1.Methotrexate 5 mg/week, 2.Sulfasalazine 500 mg od. Both have prescribed Iron capsules. Am very worried and confused about which course is better to take. PLEASE GUIDE. Can I give her aceclofenac 100/200 mg at night and for how long, along with either course to relieve pain? THANKS SO MUCH.

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease where the body starts attacking it's own self mistaking it as harmful foreign body. Immune system gets weak here, so the formula to get help from this is to STRENGTHEN your immune system , never to suppress. The medications which Doctors Bhavesh prescribed are to be taken religiously , they are immunomodulators , they will help your wife. along with medications, life style modifications and diet modification is equally important and vital in reversing your Arthritis. Adopt Plant based diet to heal your gut and IMMUNITY. Take Vitamin C on daily divided doses of around 2g . ( consult with your doctor before taking this ) Evening Primrose oil/capsules around 500mg twice daily ( Gamma Linolenic acid ) helps immensely. For diets and Nutraceuticals, consult with me in person for detailed information. Remember, Hippocrates had said, " Let Food be thy Medicine and Medicine be thy food " he also said , whenever one is afflicted with disease, first heal the "GUT" Hope it helps. Thanks. Thanks.

Avoid toward bending sit straight and do spine stretching exercise and heat fermentation twice a day. It can be due to bad posture, deficiency of calcium levels, ya muscle strain.
