  • Meniscus Tear

    The meniscus is a C-shaped piece of tough, rubbery cartilage that acts as a shock absorber between your shinbone and thighbone. It can be torn if you suddenly twist your knee while bearing weight on it. A torn meniscus is one of the most common knee injuries.

  • What is a Meniscus Tear Knee Injury

    Meniscus injury is an injury to the meniscus cartilage of the knee. Some people refer to it just as cartilage. But the meniscus are two C-shaped cushions within the knee that help shock absorb the joint cartilage of the knee.


    This is your thigh bone, and your shin bone. And as you can see, inside the knee, the meniscus cartilage can easily be seen. You’ve got your medial meniscus. You’ve got your lateral meniscus.
