    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.

    Meniscus tears are frequent in contact sports like football, as well as non-contact sports like volleyball and soccer that require leaping and cutting. They can develop when a person rapidly changes direction while jogging, and they frequently occur in conjunction with other knee ailments, such as an anterior cruciate ligament injury, more commonly known as an ACL tear.
