Meniscus Braces and Supports
The meniscus is a crescent-shaped piece of cartilage in your knee that helps disperse weight and cushion the friction between your femur (thigh bone) and tibia (shin bone) during movement. A meniscus tear is actually among the most common knee injuries. When you injure or tear your meniscus, it is important to wear a meniscus brace to prevent further injury to your knee and the surrounding ligaments. Meniscus tear braces can also help support your knee after surgery and can be worn any time the knee is at risk. Braces for meniscus injuries are recommended for athletes and active individuals because of the added strain that sports can have on your knees.
