Physiotherapy for Knee Meniscal Injuries

Knee meniscus injuries, often referred to as meniscal tears, are a common source of knee pain and discomfort. The knee joint is cushioned by two wedge-shaped pieces of cartilage called menisci, which play a crucial role in stability and shock absorption during movement. However, due to various factors such as sudden twisting, pivoting motions, or degenerative changes over time, the meniscus can become torn, leading to pain, swelling, and limited mobility.


Individuals with a meniscus tear often experience symptoms such as pain along the joint line, swelling, stiffness, and a sensation of locking or catching in the knee during movement. These symptoms may worsen during activities that involve bending, twisting, or weight-bearing on the affected leg


Meniscus tears can occur due to acute trauma, such as a sports injury or a sudden twisting motion of the knee. Additionally, degenerative changes associated with aging or repetitive stress on the knee joint can also contribute to meniscal tears.


Diagnosing a meniscus tear typically involves a thorough physical examination by health professionals such as GP’s and Physiotherapist, along with imaging tests such as MRI or ultrasound to confirm the diagnosis and assess the severity and location of the tear.


The treatment approach for a meniscus tear depends on several factors, including the type and severity of the tear, as well as the individual’s age, activity level, and overall health. Options may include conservative measures such as rest, ice, elevation, and physical therapy to strengthen the surrounding muscles and improve joint stability. In some cases, minimally invasive procedures like arthroscopic surgery may be recommended to repair or trim the torn meniscus.


Recovery from a meniscus tear varies depending on the severity of the injury and the chosen treatment approach. With proper rest, rehabilitation, and adherence to a personalized treatment plan, many individuals can experience significant improvement in symptoms and return to their usual activities over time. Physical therapy plays a crucial role in restoring range of motion, strength, and function to the knee joint, promoting a successful recovery.

If you’re experiencing symptoms suggestive of a meniscus injury, it’s essential to seek prompt evaluation and treatment from a Physiotherapist. Contact our clinic to schedule an appointment and learn more about our comprehensive approach to managing knee meniscus injuries.
