RISKS OF RUNNING WITH A TORN MENISCUS
Meniscus is a rubbery cartilage tissue which cushions the bones making up the knee joints.
It acts as a shock absorber while doing heavy activities like running and weightlifting.
A torn meniscus can cause pain while conducting these activities. Thus, it is not advisable to run with a torn meniscus.
It can not only exacerbate the injury and increase the chances of long-term pain but also increase your risk of developing osteoarthritis in the future.
However, you can use knee supports to stabilise and increase the range of the motion of knee which will aid in recovering the torn meniscus.
We highly recommend GenuTrain S for treating mild meniscus tears. It utilises hard plastic struts on a firm but free moving hinge joint to provide excellent lateral support and stability to the knee joint.Bauerfeind knee braces combine support and medical-graded compression. The targeted compression helps in alleviating pain and improving recovery by removing accumulated lactic acid. This can help with running with a torn meniscus.
