The Effect of knee pain (Meniscus tear)

A meniscus tear is a common sport injury Which occurs in knee, Meniscus tears usually happen when you lift something heavy or involve in sports activities.
The symptoms of a meniscal tear in sports are:
1.) Impact on the side or front of the knee, causing the knee joint to move to the side, can result in a tear of either menisci and occasionally the anterior cruciate ligament
(ACL), as well. An athlete might experience this when diving onto a basketball court for a loose ball or getting tackled in a football game…
2.) Unexpected, quick force can lead the knee joint to flex too far back and tear the meniscus. For example, colliding with the leg of another basketball player while coming down from a rebound might cause this…
3.)  A moderate tear can cause pain at the side or center of your knee. Swelling slowly gets worse over 2 or 3 days. This
may make your knee feel stiff and limit how you can bend your knee, but walking is usually possible..
4.)  If you are older and your meniscus is worn, you may not know what you did to cause the tear. You may only remember feeling pain after you got up from a squatting position, for example. Pain and slight swelling are often the
only symptoms..
5.) Over rotation of the knee due to planting or cutting on the leg too aggressively can cause a tear in either of the menisci. This type of pivoting is common in sports such as soccer, basketball, and football.
