    How can you treat patients who experience knee pain and swelling during and after running? If you suspect their symptoms are caused by a meniscal injury, how can you rehab and return these patients to running without surgery?
    In this Physio Edge: Running repairs podcast with Tom Goom, you’ll explore meniscal injuries in runners, recent research on runners with meniscal tears, and how to provide effective non-surgical management. You’ll discover:
    Initial steps for managing pain and swelling in affected runners. Techniques to restore and maintain range of movement. Strategies for rebuilding strength in key muscle groups. Approaches to improve impact control and tolerance, preparing runners for a gradual return to their sport. When to manage these patients non-surgically, and when to refer for a surgical opinion. Tom explores the physical aspects of recovery, along with the impact of general health, weight management, and gait retraining on knee health. With a realistic timeline for recovery and a focus on individualised treatment plans, this podcast is a must-listen for therapists who treat runners.
