Will a torn meniscus heal without surgery? How long does this take?
Hi, I've been through sort of a meniscus tear also. I tore mine in April-2011 (couldn't walk without crutches for 3 weeks) And then wore a knee brace for 2 months…. After that I was able to walk normally but not run ( I didn't take any pysiotherapy)
Id say depends how much of a tear you have the longer it will take. To this date I can run, but not without feeling a slight pain when I finish running.
Just my two cents, and experience.
Depends how bad but probably 6-8 weeks just to get back to walking and fairly normal routine. Active release techniques will help loosen he surrounding areas like quad, ham, Lcl, petelar tend, even some tensioning that would happen in the lower leg that needs to be released so there is less torque on the knee. If you have any questions about this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope you feel better
