Meniscus Tear Homeopathic Treatment
Meniscus tear homeopathic treatment helps in painless, speedy and effective repair of laceration in knee joint meniscus without surgery. Meniscus tear is one of the commonest injuries of the knee.
Contact Sports and Meniscus tears
Contact sports require players to be in close proximity and physical contact with one another while playing. Some of the examples of this kind of sports are rugby, martial arts, football, basketball, hockey, kabaddi etc.
Most of these sports include sudden, swift and agile movements and majority of these movements involve the knee joint. Smooth bending, twisting, extending and flexing of the knee is a crucial part of such sports.
Meniscus or cartilage of the knee is a rubbery structure that facilitates smooth movements of the knee and acts like a shock absorber reducing friction between the thigh bone (femur) and the shin bone (tibia).
Non-sports Meniscus Tear
Meniscus tear occurs when there is sudden and uncontrolled movement involving the knee joint.
This could happen during a seemingly harmless action like raising yourself up from a squatting posture, or an accidental twisting of your knee joint while walking or running or during a slip and fall on the floor.
This can affect children, teens, young adults and elderly alike.
Osteoarthritis Meniscus Tear
Chronic inflammation of the knee joints that is typical of the disorder called Osteoarthritis brings about excessive wear and tear of the joint and related structures. Degeneration of the knee meniscus is often seen in patients suffering from Osteoarthritis.
Meniscus Tear of Elderly
With progressing age, there are certain natural physiological changes that occur throughout the body. As a part of this process, there is also wear and tear of the meniscus and the knee joints. This can also cause laceration of the meniscus.
Meniscus Tear Symptoms
The first sign of a meniscus tear is a popping sound in your knee joint. Other symptoms could follow as listed below:
- Tenderness and painfulness on touch
- Visible swelling
- Discomfort in knee movements.
- Limitation in range of movements of the knee.
- Locking up of the knee joint.
- Unsteadiness and instability of your knee joint during weight bearing.
- Slipping or popping sensation if there is dislodgement of the meniscal cartilage.
- Inability to flex the knee after extending your leg.
Types of Meniscus Tears
Meniscus tears are classified or named using different criteria. If the position of the tear on the meniscus is considered, then there are 6 possible variations as follows:
- Bucket handle tear
- Radial tear
- Intrasubstance/ incomplete tear
- Horizontal tear
- Complex tear (this is a combination of 2 or more types of tears)
If the classification is based on severity of the laceration or wound, then there are three types, namely Grade I, Grade II and Grade III. Grade 1 is less severe, and Grade III is complete tear.
Meniscus Tear Treatment
Meniscus tear treatment in conventional medicine is based on various factors, but the severity and position of the tear determines whether or not surgery is advised.
Analgesics are prescribed for pain relief and to reduce inflammation.
Home Remedies for Meniscus Tear
Acute symptoms of meniscus tear can be helped with certain self-help measures at home. Rest to the affected knee is essential in the acute phase and helps in preventing further injury and laceration.
Crutches can be used to avoid weight-bearing on affected knee.
Ice packs can be used to relieve pain and swelling.
Bandage the affected knee joint with knee bandages or compress.
Elevate the affected part to minimize swelling.
Surgery for Meniscus Tear
Surgery is advised if the tear is very severe or complete. Grade I and II tears usually do not call for surgery. Arthroscopic repair, Arthroscopic partial meniscectomy and Arthroscopic total meniscectomy are the 3 types of surgery performed to deal with the lacerated meniscus.
It usually takes 4-6 weeks after surgery to be able to walk without pain and discomfort.
Complications of surgery are infection or injury to joint, nerves, muscles etc. and knee stiffness.
