What is the Meniscus
A meniscus is a crucial part of the knee as it provides cushioning between the femur and the tibia (aka between the thighbone and the shinbone)
It often gets injured following a rotational injury like twisting whilst playing netball/basketball. After the initial trauma to the knee, swelling and then knee locking can occur unfortunately.
How Can Health Wise Chiropractic Help
The good news is if it is a vertical stable tear, it will most often heal.
Chiropractic adjustments maybe helpful in reducing meniscus symptoms.
I often find that ultrasound therapy in the acute stages can help with the pain and swelling.
