A SMALL LINEAR TEAR IN THE POSTERIOR HORN OF THE LATERAL MENISCI
I met with an accident 2 months ago, had a minor hair line fracture on knee bone and I am walking with knee cap now. I have been suggested to do thigh muscle strengthning exercise now. Today as per MRI scan, I have a small linear tear in the posterior horn of the lateral menisci which frequently locks my knee while I walk. In this condition, can I continue with thigh muscle strengthning exercise or do I need to wait for this menisci tear problem get resolved? Does thigh muscle strengthning exersie worsen my mensici tear problem? Please advice.
I have the same problem - I had a fracture on my knee cap and four weeks later I now need to get an MRI. Doctor thinks my meniscus is tore. My leg locks and I can't bend it.
