I have, what I believe is a torn meniscus in my left knee. I figured it's a meniscus because it doesn't get better with time and it bothers me when I accelerate in a particular direction. I wear a brace and it's helping tremendously, also lately I started doing stability/balance excersizes to strengthen the surrounding muscles/tendons. It seems to be working fine. I'm only a rec player and I was wondering if you could suggest some excersizes that could improve my balance and help take the pressure off the bad portion of meniscus by making my knee as stable as possible. The only excersizes I've been doing for that sort of stability basically involve working out my core muscles, and lateral leaps where I land on one foot, balance myself, and push off hard in the opposite direction. Do you think things like lunges would help?
