What is Meniscus Tear?
A torn meniscus can be painful and incapacitating. Regrettably, it is extremely frequent. A meniscal tear is, in fact, one of the most common cartilage injuries in the knee. So, what exactly is a meniscus? It's a portion of cartilage that cushions and stabilizes the joint in your knee. It shields the bones from deterioration. A decent twist of the knee, on the other hand, is all it takes to tear the meniscus. In rare situations, a piece of torn cartilage comes away and gets caught in the knee joint, locking it up.
A torn meniscus may manifest itself in the given forms including but not limited to:
Knee Pain and Swelling
During the injury, there was a popping feeling.
Leg bending and straightening are difficult.
A propensity for your knee to become "stuck" or "locked up."
The discomfort may not be severe at first. You could even be able to play despite your ailment. However, once the inflammation has set in, your knee will most likely hurt a lot.
Your meniscus tear doctor will perform a comprehensive examination to determine whether you have a meniscus tear. They'll want to know everything about how you were hurt. To rule out fractured bones and other issues, X-rays may be required. An MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scan, which permits a more comprehensive examination of knee cartilage, may also be required.
