Meniscus Bruise

While playing in my local rec league I fell on my knee and felt a sharp pain, after seeing my doctor he said it was a bruised Meniscus and i could still play hockey as long as i can handle the pain.

What i was wondering is if this has happened to anyone, and have you tried to skate with the pain, and if there's any tips to help lessen the pain(brace etc..)

There is a cream and spray called Deep heat and Deep Freeze here in england, but it either numbs or heats the area, and takes away the pain, check ur nearest sports shop or chemist

I don't think a brace will do anything. You're probably just gonna have to play through it.

I kinda tore up my miniscus when I did my ACL, and sometimes my knee will lock straight because of it when I play. But I guess there's no further damage you can do to it by playing, or the doctor would have told you.

Rhus Tox is a homeopathic remedy that works wonders for back and joint pain.

I tore my meniscus

I just tore mine and it was 3 months rehab.

I played through it for like 5-6 games but it kept locking when i bent it and EXCRUCIATING pain when i tried to straighten it until it popped (like cracking ur knuckles). I would've kept playing but finally it locked and wouldn't release so i had surgery. So if it doesn't hurt, play.

My recommendation is let it heal. I have a cyst that's built up(2 in my right knee actually) but one is right on my outer miniscus on my right knee, always has pain. There are 2 things that modern science will NEVER be able to perfect at its current state, and thats your KNEE and your BACK. For your own health, and trust me I KNOW how it feels to sit back and want to play. Let it rest. If you want more detail, go to a knee specialist and have an MRI done. Trying to play through the pain for a few games truthfully isn't worth screwing up your knee for the rest of your life.

Yeah, I'd say let it heal. and wear a brace when you're out and about. I had tendonitis in my knee earlier this year. Took a couple days off and it was better. Guy on my team tore his meniscus and came back a week before his doctor told him to. He's pretty much done for the season now. Rest and let it heal.

Trust your doctor's advise, that's why he gets the big bucks. A bruise and a tear are two different animals, thus the doctor's OK to continue play. Stay away from using a brace unless you really need it, which doesn't appear to be the case.
