A torn meniscus usually occurs after the knee is twisted into an abnormal position. The severity of this kind of injury depends on exactly where the tear is located. This video explains what you need to know about symptoms, treatment, and recovery after a torn meniscus.
If you suffer a torn meniscus, you are likely to experience pain in the area of the tear. You may also notice that your knee feels like it could buckle. If you tear the outer side of your meniscus, then the injury may heal on its own. If the tear is on the inside, surgery may be necessary.
