Question by sportsfreak: What is the treatment for a minor medial meniscus tear?
I think, from a previous question, that i have a minor tear in my medial meniscus. What would the treatment of this be, and would i have to wear ab brace to play soccer again?
Answer by Bree
It depends how severe the tear is. If it is truly minor, the doctor can prescribe a specialized brace for you to wear. You will have to stop play soccer for a while to allow the meniscus to heal. If the tear isn’t so minor, you could need surgery. The only way to tell is by MRI or at least a thorough orthopedic exam. Make an appointment with your doctor soon. A meniscus tear is not a small matter and proper treatment is crucial for you to keep playing soccer.
