Torn knee cartilage


Torn knee cartilage injuries are relatively common personal injuries. They can cause considerable pain, suffering and loss of mobility, making it difficult for you to make the most of your home and work life.

What are the main causes of torn knee cartilage injuries?

You can tear your knee cartilage in two main ways:

  • As a result of a sudden, direct blow to the knee joint, for example, following a bad fall
  • As a result of gradual wear and tear

If you suspect you have torn your knee cartilage, you should visit your GP. He or she may send you for a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, which will detect any damage sustained to the cartilage in your knee joint.

What is the treatment for torn knee cartilage?

If a scan confirms that you have torn the cartilage in your knee joint, your doctor may refer you to a physiotherapist. He or she will provide you with exercises to strengthen the muscles inside of your knee. If you have sustained severe damage, non-surgical treatment options may fail to resolve your symptoms. In this instance, you may need to undergo invasive surgical procedures.
