Re: Torn Maniscus

meniscus tears can either be treated surgically or non surgically. the main reason you would get the meniscus treated surgically is if you were experiencing a lot of instability. i'm not completely sure what the non surgical treatment entails, it might include some physical therapy or it could just be to monitor and proceed as usual.

Silicone inserts leave radius and ulna pressure-free and provide intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
