Talk to me about meniscus tears
Apparently I tore my meniscus. Right now it doesn't need surgery and I have been doing RICE but how long should I expect it to take to heal? Can anyone recommend a brace to help with things. Instead of running I am walking (to me that is take it easy and resting) and know I can swim but what else can I do while I am healing? The last time I tore my meniscus (other knee) I also tore my MCL and ACL and needed surgery so I couldn't do anything until after rehab but this time it is just the meniscus so I not sure what my liimitations really are or should be.
