WHAT IS ARTHROSCOPIC KNEE SURGERY?
Knee arthroscopy is done when your doctor wants to diagnose problems in your knee joint. During the surgical procedure, your surgeon will make an incision in your knee and insert an arthroscope - a small camera - into your knee, allowing them to view the inside of the joint on a screen. This allows them to see any problems within the joint.
Arthroscopy is used to diagnose many problems of the knee joint including a torn meniscus. There are limited risks and a relatively short recovery time.
A good knee brace to use after knee arthroscopy is the GenuTrain S, which is a hinged knee support that provides extra stability.
Bauerfeind’s high-quality supports or braces with medical-grade compression is designed to provide pain relief and stability. Our knit material and special viscoelastic cushioned pads make for a comfortable brace to complement your recovery process.
HOW TO TREAT PAIN AFTER KNEE ARTHROSCOPY?
- Regularly apply ice packs in the first few days to the affected area to help reduce swelling and pain.
- Stretching and strengthening exercises, especially for your quadriceps muscles. Your doctor can recommend a physical therapist to teach you what to do.
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications and analgesic may be helpful.
- Severe or persistent pain should be investigated by your doctor.
