Meniscal Tears: What, Where, Why & When (Video)

As I previously discussed, meniscal tears are common causes of knee pain.  Expectedly, most patients don’t always understand what they are, how they occur and the best ways to diagnose and treat them. Below, I’ve included a video in which I try (:-)) to explain all of this.  I hope you find it helpful.

For additional information about meniscal tears, you may also wish to look at these other resources I’ve posted:
  1. Anatomy and Causes
  2. Symptoms and Diagnosis
  3. Treatment Options
  4. Surgery
  5. Knee Arthroscopy

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me either through this blog or in my office.
