Meniscus Injury


Meniscus Injury

Your knees are essential for everyday activities like walking, running, and climbing stairs. However, a meniscus injury can severely impact mobility and quality of life. At Hart Orthopedics, we understand the importance of addressing this common knee condition promptly and effectively. Our experienced orthopedic surgeons specialize in diagnosing and treating meniscus injuries to help you regain your active lifestyle.

Understanding Meniscus Injury

The meniscus, a crescent-shaped cartilage between the thighbone (femur) and shinbone (tibia), acts as a cushion in each knee. In each knee, there are two menisci—the medial meniscus on the inner side and the lateral meniscus on the outer side. Injuries to the meniscus occur from tearing or damage, often due to sudden twisting or impact.

Meniscus injuries can result from various circumstances, such as sudden movements in sports like football, basketball, and soccer, forceful knee impacts, squatting or kneeling with a twisting motion (particularly in older adults), and degenerative changes due to aging. Symptoms include knee pain, swelling, clicking sensations, and difficulty bending or straightening the knee.

Diagnosis involves a physical examination and imaging tests like X-rays or MRI scans. Treatment options, depending on factors like severity, include RICE, NSAIDs, physical therapy, knee braces, and arthroscopic surgery.
Recovery time varies, and at Hart Orthopedics, a personalized plan is crafted for regaining full movement and strength. To prevent meniscus injuries, warm up before activity, maintain leg strength, avoid sudden motions, use proper form, and maintain a healthy weight.
