Meniscus (Cartilage) Injury

Meniscus (Cartilage) Injury - Essential info, expert advice and product recommendations

What is it?

The meniscus is a piece of cartilage that provides cushion between the femur (thighbone) and tibia (shinbone). A meniscus injury may include symptoms of pain, swelling and stiffness, and difficulty bending/ straightening the patella (knee).

Why do I have it?

Meniscus injuries occur when sudden stops and changes in direction take place. This injury is commonly seen in addition to other knee injuries.

When does it hurt?

Weight-bearing activities are likely to cause increased pain. Avoid impact injuries such as running and jumping.

The Bracing Experts Advice:

Many light-weight, hinged bracing options are available to provide additional support the sides of the patella. These braces are intended for daily use and allow functionality while the meniscus heals.
