A-Z of Injuries

Knee - Cartilage Tear

Meniscus Tears

Torn meniscus is a common injury in sports, where the cartilage between the thigh and shin gets nipped or torn. It can cause knee locking or giving way and if does not recover in 6-8 weeks may require surgical intervention.

Signs & symptoms:

  • Swollen knee joint
  • Knee joint pain laterally or medially depending on the cartilage injury.
  • Knee giving way

Physiotherapy treatment pre or post-surgery is to improve the pain free movement of the knee joint and address any alignment issues that may have contributed to the injury.
