Meniscus tear in the knee can heal itself depending on many factors like your level daily activity, age, time frame, etc. The faster you want to get back your life before the meniscus tear will determine which route is best for you to pursue.
While most people think that the answer to a meniscus tear treatment is surgery, a lot of the time arthroscopic surgery may not be necessary. Surprisingly enough, our bodies have the capability to repair torn cartilage if you have suffered an injury to the knee.
Meniscus Tear First Step
The first step in attempting to repair a meniscus tear is to provide your body with the proper nutrients it needs to reduce inflammation and mend the torn cartilage. Some foods, however, make the healing process much harder.
When you eat foods that are difficult for your body to digest, you stomach actually has an allergic reaction to the food, causing inflammation in your gut. These types of pro-inflammation foods, like foods that are high in Omega-6 fats like sunflower, peanut, and soybean oils should be avoided. Foods high in trans-fats, refined carbohydrates, and these Omega-6 fats are hard for your stomach to digest and can cause the gut inflammation that will slow down the healing process in your knee.
This type of inflammation is what your body works to fix first, putting the task of fixing the torn meniscus in your knee aside for later. When your body has inflammation, it uses naturally produced stem cells to reduce inflammation and heal the inflamed area. If you eat foods that you body does not have trouble digesting, those stem cells can work to fix the inflamed and torn cartilage in your knee.
There are also certain foods that help your body reduce inflammation. Fruits and vegetables, especially those high in antioxidants and good Omega-3 fats like avocados work to reduce inflammation in the body.
If you feed your body with the proper fuel it needs, it can begin to heal it’s own wounds, leaving not only your knee, but your entire body feeling healthier.
