Injury to the meniscus and knee ligaments is one of the most common knee injuries.
What is the meniscus? The meniscus is a crescent-shaped disk that provides stability to the knee.
A knee meniscus injury significantly impairs knee function, leading to severe pain and instability while walking.
We successfully conduct treatment for both medial and lateral meniscus injuries using modern methods and equipment.
Recognize the Symptoms
of Meniscus Injury
Damage to the meniscus can occur when lifting heavy objects or, more commonly, during sports activities.
The resilience of the meniscus to injuries weakens as the body ages due to a decrease in its elasticity. The following 11 symptoms are characteristic of a meniscus injury:
- Stiff knee
- Instability while walking
- Knee pain when bending
- Knee pain and swelling
- Knee pain without swelling
- Knee pain below the kneecap
- Knee pain when squatting
- Knee pain when walking
- Knee pain on the inner side
- Knee slipping out of place
A third-degree medial meniscus injury can be extremely uncomfortable and lead to overall instability while walking.
