The knee contains two menisci one medial and one lateral. The menisci are tough cartilage structures that function as cushions between the femur and tibia. The menisci (cartilage) are contoured to accept the femur, this contouring aids in stabilizing the knee joint and weight distribution along the joint line.
Injuries to the menisci (cartilage) can be either traumatic, as seen with sports injuries, or brittleness due to aging. The menisci (cartilage) have a very poor blood supply and do not respond well to surgical repair. Typically the smallest portion of the cartilage is removed when torn.
Meniscus tears can be treated with RICE
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) such as Ibuprofen, Motrin, Naprosyn and Celebrex may be used to decrease pain and swelling. Be sure to talk to your doctor before starting these medications.Surgical treatment
