Treatment of meniscus injury includes:
- Rest, ice wrapping with elastic bandage
- Physical therapy
- Surgery – required for larger tears at the outer edge or for removal of torn pieces
An orthopaedic brace assists in providing effective support during the treatment.
Orthopaedic supports or braces advised against meniscus injury are
- Stabimed II
- Collamed II
- Medi hinged knee pro
- Protect.St pro
- Medi hinged knee wrap
Medical supports and braces are prescribed by the doctor if required, and the patients
are measured for the correct fit by specialist medical retailers (e.g. surgical
appliance dealers): the user’s relevant measurements are taken so that an exact
anatomical fit is achieved.
