In brief: Repair

Torn meniscus cartilages should be saved if at all possible.
While exercising with a bike and a pool are usually safe, repair is preferred.

In brief: Meniscal tear

Straight leg lifts ( with or without ankle weights) performed on your backs and sides combined with rest may help reduce your symptoms.
Unfortunately most meniscal tears at your age will not heal and will remain symptomatic without surgery.

meniscal tears have responded very well with healing of the tears and relief of all symptoms using prolotherapy. visit www.getprolo.com or www.aaomed.org for information and for a doctor to help you get better without surgery.
