Is it safe to skate with Meniscus tear?
First of all, I apologise for opening two threads at the same time, I just have to ask this. Thanks for your patience with me.
I've experienced the same degree of bearable pain on my right knee for 9 months now, and I can still skate and do intense practice, of course, I do give myself breaks often and avoid doing heavy practices on some sessions, sometimes I even refrain from jumps. I practice my jumps probably twice or three times a week.
I haven't been diagnosed but, I'm assuming it's a meniscus tear for the reason that I've experienced it for 9 months now, and that I feel pain bending the knee, or sometimes walking. They're bearable pains, and even when I do intense practice, I don't feel it that much, only slightly. I feel it afterwards when I'm done practicing.
Anyway, has anyone here experienced or is experiencing Meniscus tears? What did you do about it?
I'm not sure what to do at this point, I just want to know how do I avoid not making it worse, or how do I treat it? I heard about surgery and I'm not keen about that. :(
Any other helpful advice will be greatly appreciated.
