East Tennessee Spine & Sport is your go-to provider for
Degenerative Meniscal Tears

Degenerative meniscal tears refer to tears that occur in the meniscus, a C-shaped cartilage in the knee joint. Unlike traumatic tears caused by sudden injuries, degenerative tears develop over time due to wear and tear associated with aging or repetitive stress on the knee joint. Common causes include activities that involve repetitive squatting or twisting motions. Symptoms of degenerative meniscal tears may include pain, swelling, stiffness, and difficulty fully extending or bending the knee. If you experience these symptoms, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment options.
