The Meniscus is a cartilage block that connects to the femur via the top of the tibia plateau. It works as a shock absorber and cushions the joint, reducing stress and tension.
Your physician will evaluate your injury and may recommend an MRI which is the best way for seeing a meniscus tear. They may also recommend surgery or physical therapy pending the degree of meniscus damage. However, surgery is not always necessary.
Regardless of whether or not surgery is needed, physical therapy is an effective way to improve movement and reduce pain and discomfort.
