How Do You Check Yourself For A Torn Meniscus?

There are a couple of movements that you can perform to quickly screen your knee joints. If pain, popping, clicking, catching, or instability are experienced with these movements, you should follow up with your healthcare provider for further evaluation. 

  1. Standing on the involved leg with the foot flat and the knee slightly bent, twist your body side to side three times. 
  2. Standing with your feet positioned approximately a foot apart and your toes pointing straight ahead, squat down as far as possible and return to the starting position. Repeat this movement with the feet turned in and turned out. You can use support if needed to assist with maintaining your balance.
