Meniscus damage and meniscus tear – treatment

In the event of meniscus damage or a meniscus tear, the choice of the right therapy depends on where and how severely your meniscus is injured. This is determined by various tests during the physical examination and may need to be confirmed by further examinations.
Smaller meniscus tears in areas with a good blood supply can be treated conservatively with pain medication and physiotherapeutic exercises as well as by relieving the strain on the knee. In the case of more extensive meniscus damage with symptoms such as pain and restrictions in extension and flexion, you should consider surgery – including to prevent long-term joint damage. Our experienced specialists at Schoen Clinic Bad Aibling Harthausen near Rosenheim use the latest arthroscopic surgical methods. In combination with outpatient rehabilitation in the form of effective physiotherapy, you will soon be fit for everyday life again.
