Pop! That is not the sound you want coming from your knee. Unfortunately, meniscal injuries happen very quickly on the job. If you bang your knee hard or move your knee awkwardly and feel a pop or burning sensation, you may have a torn meniscus. It is essential to see an Orthopedic Surgeon as soon as possible to assess the extent of the damage. The meniscus is part of the cushion in your knee. If you tear a portion of that buffer, it could lead to the early onset of arthritis.
