Meniscus Tear

What is a Meniscus Tear?

One of the most common knee injuries is a Meniscus Tear. This is also one of the most common sport injuries. The Meniscus refers to the cartilage in the knee, which cushions the joints and absorbs the shock between the shin bone and thigh bone.

Although the Meniscus is very tough, it can tear from a sudden twist or hit to the knee. It is for this reason that athletes in contact sports often suffer Meniscus Tears or torn cartilage of the knee. In addition to athletes, the elderly are more susceptible to Meniscus Tears, as the Meniscus wears away with age.

What are the symptoms of a Meniscus Tear?

While some Meniscus Tears present themselves with a popping of the knee and immediate pain, Meniscus Tears do not always produce symptoms immediately. In fact, many people who suffer a Meniscus Tear do not know they have suffered one until the symptoms begin which can be days after a fall or injury.

The most common symptoms of a Meniscus Tear include:

  • Knee pain
  • Swelling of the knee
  • Stiffness of the knee
  • Locking of the knee
