Treatment for a Torn Meniscus
RICE treatment (Rest, Ice, Compress, and Elevate) may be sufficient to a slightly torn meniscus. This will provide comfort to alleviate the pain and lessen the swelling as the meniscus heals over time. A major tear may require surgery.
The best treatment for a meniscus tear is to understand the injury, rest, and wear a knee brace specifically designed to support a meniscus injury. A knee brace ideal for meniscus tears will support the knee in a position to help prevent it from rotating too far in an unnatural direction. It would ideally be worn for daily activities if you have previously had an injury and during sports for prevention whether or not you have previously been injured.
