Meniscus tears – A common source of knee pain

Did you hurt your knee recently? There are some easy ways to figure out if you have a meniscus tear. Learn how to get this problem fixed.

The knee is an important joint for movement. Each component of the knee protects the joint during motion. One important component, the menisci, are prone to injury. A meniscal injury can cause pain, hinder everyday activities, and may even cause long-lasting damage. Orthopedic surgeons can offer different treatment options based on the extent of the injury and the patient’s goals.
