TOP 5 EXERCISES FOR MENISCAL INJURY

Our physical therapists search the internet for the best exercises to keep you active and pain-free. Enjoy.

#1

Quad Sets

The quadriceps are located on the front of your thigh. Following meniscal injury they tend to "shut down", leading to knee instability and pain.

#2

VMO Recruitment

This exercise targets the Vastus Medialis Obliquus or "VMO." It is a critical knee stabilizer that weakens following meniscal injury, leading to knee buckling and pain.

Short arc quads

#3

Quad Strength

The quadriceps are key to activities such as getting out of chairs without pain or difficulty. This exercise strengthens them without adding strain to the medial meniscus.

We're partnering with the world's best gyms to kick joint pain's butt.

#4

Range of Motion

Following an acute meniscal injury the knee tends to swell, restricting the knee range-of-motion. This exercise methodically and safely address this tightness and ROM restriction.

#5

Hamstrings Firing

This exercise is a conservative approach to both improving hamstrings contraction AND your knee's range-of-motion.

BONUS

Knee Icing

Excessive swelling restricts knee range of motion, inhibits the knee musculature and slow the healing process. Icing quickly and methodically for short periods for the first 3-5 days following injury is extremely beneficial.
