Knee Pain – Meniscus Tears

Knee Pain Meniscus Tears

Meniscus tears are among the most common injuries that lead to an orthopedic evaluation for knee pain.  They are typically acute injuries that happen when your foot is planted with weight bearing and you are twisting or changing directions.  This is very common during participation in sports, but can happen during daily life as well.

Many patients actually feel a “tearing” sensation when the injury happens,  but this is not always the case.  The symptoms usually involve sharp, stabbing pain and stiffness of the knee.

Read my most recent post at KNEE PAIN – MENISCUS TEARS to learn more about this very common injury.

If you believe that you have a meniscus tear, call my office at (719) 822-6277.  I would be happy to evaluate you.
