Meniscus (cartilage) Injury
WHAT is it?
The meniscus is a piece of cartilage that provides cushion between the femur (thighbone) and tibia (shinbone). A meniscus injury may include symptoms of pain, swelling and stiffness, and difficulty bending/ straightening the patella (knee).
WHEN does it hurt?
Weight-bearing activities are likely to cause increased pain. Avoid impact injuries such as running and jumping.
WHY do I have it?
Meniscus injuries occur when sudden stops and changes in direction take place. This injury is commonly seen in addition to other knee injuries.
