Couldn't find what I was looking for via search.
So I recently sustained a what my sports PT said was probably a very minor tear in my meniscus(inside one on right knee). I didn't have a MRI and she did lots of movement tests and said there is no indication of significant damage. I don't really notice it at all apart from when i squat right down or basically over extend my leg.
She also said it should heal within a month. I was under the impression a meniscus cannot heal since there is no blood flow? In the first week it healed pretty fast to the point where it has been for about a week, but I figured that might just be because the swelling subsided?
I've been given the green light to ski on it with caution, and thats been fine. But I get kind of bored skiing when I can't push myself and crash without consequences.
My question: Can minor meniscus injuries heal? Or heal enough for you not to notice it? I thought any tear=surgery but she has not even mentioned surgery as a possibility.
