Treatment of individuals with meniscus pathology has evolved dramatically in the past 50 years. Much of the evolution has been driven by the arthroscope and advanced imaging that better elucidate lesions. We now address these pathologies through the lens of acute versus degenerative and discuss how to best address the presenting issue. This course will provide a context for the functional requirements that drive management of decision-making for both conservative and operative management (excision/partial/repair). The rehabilitative approaches are individualized to the specific operative or nonoperative sequence.

1. Anatomy and Biodynamics: How and Why the Meniscus Gets Injured or Becomes Degenerative

As the menisci are poorly vascularized, limited healing can be seen. The differing anatomy and shapes of the menisci play roles in their injury mechanisms, but aging dictates degenerative changes that may be inherent.

2. Nonsurgical and Surgical Choices for Meniscal Injury

Our enhanced imaging has now provided better recognition of how we might best manage meniscal lesions. There is evolving evidence from outcome measures that matches patients who will benefit from surgical management and those who may be best managed nonoperatively.

3. Exercise Progressions Considerations

Rehabilitation of patients with meniscal lesions is directed by context (acute tear or degenerative lesion). Conservative management progressions associated with a degenerative meniscus or postoperative management of partial meniscectomy or repair is individually designed specific to presentation or surgery.
