What to do with a degenerative meniscal tear?

30 second example of an obstructive meniscal tear that often continues to cause knee dysfunction despite nonsurgical treatment. The degenerative tears have been shown in multiple studies to get better most of the time without surgery, orthobiologics, or anything more than physical therapy. A meniscus tear diagnosis on a MRI reading is not a reason for any invasive procedure….rest, rehab….time…will allow most patients to return to their “baseline” knee function.

With orthobiologics, although there may be a degenerative meniscal tear…we are usually treating the joint milieu by chronic inflammation and the chondral catabolic processes.

Just the first 30 seconds of this video!:
