Sometimes the smallest things make the biggest impact!
The Meniscus is a small thin piece of cartilage in your knee joint and is attached to your Tibia. The function of this tissue is to act as a shock absorber during activities such as running and jumping. When this becomes strained or torn, it can be a very big deal. Sport injuries, work strains, regular wear and tear as we age with improper posture can result in Meniscus tear and sometimes a piece can break off, creating a blockage or a locked joint. The process of recovery from injuries can be simple with rest, ice and support, or complex; requiring surgery to repair a major tear or to remove pieces that are creating the locked joint.
