HOW CAN I RUN AFTER A MENISCUS SURGERY?
The meniscus is one of the most common knee structures to be injured. It’s role is to provide support as a shock absorber, particularly to rotational forces. Often meniscus tears go unnoticed in younger population as the trauma is caused by sports or recreational activities. In the older generation, the tear could be from age-related degradation of the meniscus. To repair a torn meniscus, meniscus surgery is conducted. Depending on the severity of the the tears, arthroscopic meniscus repair is done to preserve the healthy tissue.
We recommend using an advanced orthosis SecuTec Genu if you intend to run after a major meniscus surgery. 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.
To manage pain during rehabilitation and for quick recovery from a mild repair surgery, we recommend using GenuTrain S. It is a hinged knee support which provides steadiness in movement while running.
