Your meniscus is the cushion in your knee. It acts as a shock absorber. Meniscus tears are one of the most common injury to the knee. Very common to happen with contact sports or can happen with a sudden movement such as twisting and squatting at the knee. Degenerative tears most likely happen as the cartilage wears over time with age. You may have pain, swelling, decreased range of motion, or locking of the knee. There are non-surgical and surgical treatment options.
