What Is a Meniscus Tear?

Each of your knees has two menisci, which are C-shaped pieces of cartilage that act like a cushion between your shinbone and your thighbone. Meniscus tears usually take place when an athlete twists or turns their upper leg while their foot is planted and their knee is bent. They usually cause pain, swelling and stiffness and you also might feel a block to knee motion and have trouble extending your knee fully.
