Meniscus Tear

The meniscus is the rubbery, C-shaped disc on your knee. A meniscus tear is a common knee injury often caused by twisting or turning quickly with the foot planted and the knee bent. Meniscus tears can also be caused when lifting something heavy. Common symptoms include knee pain, swelling, stiffness in the knee, and popping or locking of the knee.
