What is Meniscus?
Meniscus is a cartilage like tissue that covers the intersection points of the femur and the tibia at the knee. It covers both inside and outside of the joint. It is not as hard as a bone, nor as soft as a cartilage, and it absorbs the pressure applied by our bodyweight to protect the knee.
Meniscus is for :
- Balancing the joint
- Dividing the body weight between the knees
- Connecting tibia and femur bones
- Absorbing the impact of our movements
- Distributing the fluids to the joint area
