Knee Injury Treatment Questions

I tore my posterior horn of medial meniscus few days ago (grade 3). My doctor recommended physiotherapy after clinical inspection. My understanding for doing physiotherapy is making the muscles around the hips, quads, hamstring etc stronger so that there wouldn't be much stress to the torn meniscus. But once we stop doing physiotherapy, won't the muscles become weaker again? As we are not training them and this in turn would cause the pain to come back. Can someone let me know how physiotherapy performs in the long run?

Hi lybrate-user, firstly, physiotherapy treatment is not just restricted with muscle strengthening, it also corrects the biomechanical changes occurred due to the meniscal tare. Secondly, its takes eight weeks to develop muscular strength but once the muscle memory is developed, it will take 5-6 months for it be forgotten. Hence, maintenance exercises done ocassionally, can help you to keep up with the strength levels.

Grade 3 falls in complete tear category. It may take several weeks. In such case one should not bear weight on affected leg. Regular investigation will tell how much recovery need to be done. Rest is important, bandage cast according to the severity is necessity. For better understanding I need to see reports. You can play soccer but before that your ankle need proper rehabilitation. Ankle sprain are recurrent in nature, hence should be dealt with extreme care & proper rehabilitation protocol. Regards.

I am suffering from patellofemoral syndrome. Please suggest treatment and how long it take to cure it?
In many cases, patellofemoral pain will improve with simple home treatment. Activity Changes Stop doing the activities that make your knee hurt until your pain is resolved. This may mean changing your training routine or switching to low-impact activities that will place less stress on your knee joint. Biking and swimming are good low-impact options. If you are overweight, losing weight will also help to reduce pressure on your knee. The RICE Method RICE stands for rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Rest. Avoid putting weight on the painful knee. Ice. Use cold packs for 20 minutes at a time, several times a day. Do not apply ice directly on skin. Compression. To prevent additional swelling, lightly wrap the knee in an elastic bandage, leaving a hole in the area of the kneecap. Make sure that the bandage fits snugly and does not cause additional pain. Elevation. As often as possible, rest with your knee raised up higher than your heart. Medication Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen and naproxen can help reduce swelling and relieve pain. If you pain persists or it becomes more difficult to move your knee, contact your doctor for a thorough evaluation. Prevention quad extension exercise Leg extension exercises help to strengthen and stretch the quadriceps, the muscles in the front of the thigh. Patellofemoral pain syndrome is usually fully relieved with simple measures or physical therapy. It may recur, however, if you do not make adjustments to your training routine or activity level. It is essential to maintain appropriate conditioning of the muscles around the knee, particularly the quadriceps and the hamstrings. There are additional steps that you can take to prevent recurrence of patellofemoral knee pain. They include: Wearing shoes appropriate to your activities Warming up thoroughly before physical activity Incorporating stretching and flexibility exercises for the quadriceps and hamstrings into your warm-up routine, and stretching after physical activity Increasing training gradually Reducing any activity that has hurt your knees in the past Maintaining a healthy body weight to avoid overstressing your knees.
