Ayurvedic Treatment For Medial Meniscal Tear In Nagpur

About Meniscal Tear:

A meniscus tear is a common knee. Each knee has two menisci (plural of meniscus)- one at the outer edge of the knee and one at the inner edge. The menisci keep your knee steady by balancing your weight across the knee. A torn meniscus can prevent your knee from working right.

SYMPTOMS AND SIGNS:

The patient’s chief complaints are usually knee pain and swelling.These get worse when the knee bears more weight(for example, when running).
Another typical complaint is joint locking.When the patient is unable to straighten the leg fully.This can be accompanied by a clicking feeling.Sometimes, a meniscal tear also causes a sensation and that the knee gives way.
A tear of the meniscus commonly follows a trauma which involves rotation of the knee while it was slightly bent.These maneuvers also excite the pain after the injury; for example, getting out of a car is often reported as painful.
The cooper’s sign is present in over 92% of tears.It is a subjective symptom of pain in the affected knee when turning over in bed at night.Osteoarthritis pain is present with weight bearing, but the meniscal tear causes pain with a twisting motion of the knee as the meniscal fragment gets pinched, and the capsular attachment gets stretched causing the complaint of pain.
