Meniscal Tears

meniscus tear

The meniscus is a structure made up of cartilage that is located in your knee joint. In each knee, there are two C-shaped menisci. They have the important function of acting as shock absorbers in your knee.

Your meniscus can be torn with a twisting injury to the knee. In older adults, the meniscus can be injured through a wear and tear process.
