Meniscal tears are injuries to the cartilage discs separating the bones in the knees. Meniscal tears can occur from acute trauma, such as twisting or turning quickly on a bent knee, or from degeneration over time. Some meniscal tears may require surgical intervention, but physical therapy will continue to be essential.
Common symptoms of this condition are:
Sharp and intense pain in the knee,
A “pop” or tearing sensation
Difficulty moving the knee or walking.
At Apex, a therapist will assess the joint and work with you to develop a plan of care that best suits your needs and goals.
