Keep your Meniscus it is a part of You
3 REASONS YOU PROBABLY THINK YOU NEED KNEE SURGERY BUT PROBABLY DON'T
Most people usually rush to the conclusion that since their doctor says they have a meniscus tear and the MRI shows that there is a meniscus tear that they have no other choice but to have surgery. OK, lets get started. First off, many types of meniscus tears can heal without surgery. The Meniscus is made of fibrocartilage which is known for its rigidity and strength. A tear does not mean that there is something inherently wrong with how your knee is working and this is something I would like to stress. The implications of a meniscus tear are not as dire as many people seem to think. In fact, many people currently have tears and are functioning just fine. They may not even know they have a meniscus tear.
