How Compression Garments Can Help with Meniscus Surgery Rehabilitation
Meniscus surgery is a common procedure used to repair the cartilage in the knee joint. The recovery process can be long and painful, but compression garments can help reduce swelling and pain, as well as speed up the healing process. In this blog post, we'll discuss how compression garments can help with meniscus surgery rehabilitation to get you back on your feet in no time, just like Elliot Dee!
“I used CRX Compression Tights every day after rehab sessions”
Compression garments are designed to provide support and reduce swelling around the affected area. This helps to reduce pain and inflammation, which in turn speeds up the healing process. Compression Tights are recommended for patients who have undergone meniscus surgery, as they provide extra support to the knee joint and help reduce swelling. Additionally, cold therapy is often used in conjunction with compression garments to further reduce inflammation and pain.
Rehabilitation exercises are also important for recovering from meniscus surgery. These exercises help strengthen the muscles around the knee joint and improve range of motion. Compression Tights can also be beneficial during these exercises, as they provide extra support while you move your leg through its range of motion.
Elliot's Injury & Return to Play Journey
Elliot shares his experience with meniscus surgery and the rehabilitation process, highlighting the importance of targeted compression and lymphatic drainage in achieving a successful recovery.
"My most recent injury was a medial meniscus repair in my knee. It was pretty straightforward with my surgery. There were a few ups and downs, but I’m glad to be back from it now!"
Elliot's rehab journey included gradual progression from gentle flexion and extension exercises to more advanced bodyweight loading, occlusion training, and plyometrics, ultimately leading to his return to training and playing.

Elliot also used our CRX CarePump Lymphatic Drainage Devices for his rehabilitation. A Red Dot 2023 Award Winning piece of technology that is a form of compression therapy which, can be used to help with knee injuries. Compression therapy works by applying pressure to the affected area, which helps reduce swelling and inflammation, as well as increase circulation. This increased circulation helps to speed up the healing process and reduce pain.

The pulsing massage helps to reduce pain and improve mobility in the affected area.
In addition to providing relief from pain and inflammation, CRX CarePumps can also help with range of motion and flexibility in the knee joint.

Overall, CRX CarePumps can be an effective tool for helping with knee injuries. The combination of compression therapy and pulsing massage can provide relief from pain while also helping to improve range of motion and flexibility in the affected area.
Overall, compression garments are an effective way to help with knee rehabilitation by providing support, reducing pain and inflammation, improving circulation, and protecting the knee from further damage.
