We have chosen the Reaction Brace by Don Joy which is considered one of the best knee braces for Meniscus pain. Designed by a physician, the unique webbing and light stays (hinges) work to give you the perfect combination of support and wearability.

This care kit includes a complete Strength and Stretch plan created by Mike Verplancke, DPT. It provides you with a widely accepted exercise program through booklet and video. To assist you with the exercises, the kit also includes a Therapist Choice stretch strap and a five pack of resistance bands with increasing levels of resistance. The plan and tools replicate the activity Mike would recommend if you went to see him.

Fast Freeze: Your injury hurts and as you get back to activity your muscles will be sore. The Care Kit contains Fast Freeze, a powerful fast working topical analgesic that provides you immediate relief with a simple spray.

About Meniscus Injury

Meniscus tears are among the most common knee injuries. Anyone at any age can tear a meniscus, but is more common in athletics, especially for contact sports. When people talk about torn cartilage in the knee, they are usually referring to a torn meniscus.

Anatomy

The knee is one of the strongest joints in your body. It is made up of three main parts; the femur, the tibia, and the patella. Each of the ends where they touch are covered with a smooth, slippery substance that protects and cushions the knee called articular cartilage. The articular cartilage is a tough and rubbery substance in the shape of two wedges called meniscus and act as your knee’s shock absorbers.

Description

Menisci tear in different ways. They are designated by their look:

  • Bucket Handle
  • Flap
  • Radial

In sports, most tears occur with other injuries such and ACL or PCL tears.

Cause

Sudden meniscus tears often happen during sports. While at play, people tend to squat and then twist rapidly.

Degenerative meniscus tears are more likely to occur in older people. As the cartilage weakens over time, the aged tissue is more prone to tears. A small movement, like an awkward step, may be enough to cause a tear.

Symptoms

The most common explanation of meniscus tear is, “I heard a pop.” Most people can still walk on their injured knee and athletes can play the rest of the game. However, over the next 2 to 3 days, your knee will gradually become more stiff and swollen.

The most common symptoms of meniscus tear are:

  • Pain
  • Stiffness and swelling
  • Catching or locking of your knee
  • The sensation of your knee "giving way"
  • You are not able to move your knee through its full range of motion

A piece of meniscus may come loose and drift into the joint. This can cause your knee to slip, pop, or lock. If the tear is in the outer edge where there is increased blood flow you might not need surgery. If the symptoms described below don’t continue, conservative treatment might be all you need. The core to conservative treatment is based on RICE:

  • Rest. Take a break from the activity that caused the injury. Your doctor may recommend that you use crutches to avoid putting weight on your leg.
  • Ice. Use cold packs for 20 minutes at a time, several times a day. Do not apply ice directly to the skin.
  • Compression. To prevent additional swelling and blood loss, wear an elastic compression bandage.
  • Elevation. To reduce swelling, recline when you rest, and put your leg up higher than your heart.

FAQs
      1. How are these products any better than what I can by at my local pharmacy? We curated only medical grade products found in clinics, but the true power is the combination of the products and full instructions that will allow you to get back to what you love.

      2. How often should I wear my brace?  Wear during all activities initially and then during rigorous activity over time.

      3. How long will the injury take to heal? It can take six to eight weeks, but depending on injury it might be longer and/or require surgery.

      4. Can all Meniscus Injuries be treated conservatively? No, your injury can vary by the size of the tear and the location of the tear which can significantly impact your ability to heal without the need of surgery.
      5. I think I have a meniscus tear, but I’m not sure. Can I do any damage to my knee by trying this kit?
        It is important to always consult a physician for any medical advice and a diagnosis. However, most knee injuries will benefit from the therapies in this kit and if used appropriately, by not pushing yourself to pain, the risk of additional injury is limited.
