Charge of the Meniscus?

In addition to a damping function, the meniscuses also have a proprioceptive function. This means that the knee joint sends information to the brain, to indicate in which position the knee joint is located. For example, whether the knee is bent or stretched. This connection is disrupted in an (acute) meniscus injury. In an acute meniscus injury, a tear develops in the inner or the outer meniscus (during sport). This meniscus can tear in many different ways, but important to know is: when the meniscus is torn, it will often hurt a lot when subjected to a load.

A meniscus can also become "worn". The body becomes older during the years. Similarly the meniscii. This process of aging is called degeneration. When the meniscus is damaged by an acute trauma, this is immediately noticed. If, however, meniscus injuries are caused by degeneration, complaints will build up over the years. This is because the quality of the meniscuses is deteriorating. The menisci are then 'worn out'.

Causes meniscus injury

A meniscus often gets damaged during exercise. The body rotates where the lower leg remains (for example because the studs in grass or artificial grass in sports such as hockey, rugby, football etc.). There is a crackling sound or feeling after which the knee becomes thick and painful.

Symptoms in an acute meniscus injury

  • Acute trauma (during sport)
  • Swelling / getting thick of the knee
  • Moisture in the knee
  • Pain at the knee
  • Crepitations (cracking noise in the knee when moving)
  • Climbing stairs is painful
  • Squatting is painful

You can also request strengthening exercises from your physiotherapist to strengthen the muscle strength around the knee.
