RUNNING AFTER A MENISCECTOMY- HOW TO GET BACK TO IT?
Meniscectomy is one of the most common arthroscopic surgeries performed where in all or a part of the meniscus tissue is removed. It is usually performed when the tear is moderate to large and depending on the age and health of the patient. The meniscus is one of the most common knee structures to be injured, especially in runners.
Usually patients can get back to running after two to three months of recovery period. Consult your physician regarding returning to running after the surgery. Knee braces provide support and stability to get back into running after an arthroscopic procedure such as meniscectomy.
We recommend using an advanced orthosis SecuTec Genu for post-op care after a meniscectomy. It is sturdy, yet lightweight as it is made of a special, very strong light metal alloy which aids in greater stability and range of movement when running. It restricts the range of movement of the knee to aid with healing.
Bauerfeind’s high-quality supports or braces with medical-grade compression are 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.
