Meniscus Tears Non-Surgical Recovery
A torn meniscus can cause pain, swelling, stiffness, catching or locking sensation in your knee, making you unable to move it through its complete range of motion. It’s very common to have meniscus tears appear on MRI, especially as we age, but these tears are often not the source of the patient’s knee pain. Many meniscus surgeries are performed every year, but they may be no more effective than physical therapy or no surgery at all.
Due to these limitations in surgery management, there is a trend toward maintaining as much vital meniscal tissue as possible to avoid rapid deterioration of cartilage.
At Pure Health, we offer a great range of orthobiological treatments, including Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, to help improve pain and promote meniscal regeneration. The alternatives that we use are minimally invasive, natural tissue-derived products to help restore function, allowing your body to heal more quickly. These types of care are far less invasive than traditional surgical approaches and mimic the body’s natural healing process by accelerating the maturation of the healing tissue.
