Can you walk around with a torn meniscus?
A torn meniscus usually produces well-localized pain in the knee. The pain often is worse during twisting or squatting motions. Unless the torn meniscus has locked the knee, many people with a torn meniscus can walk, stand, sit, and sleep without pain.
Can a meniscus tear heal without surgery?
Surgery for degenerative meniscus tears in adult knees with osteoarthritis is rarely required. Although your degenerative tear will not heal spontaneously, physical therapy and other non-surgical measures are usually effective at minimizing pain and maximizing function as effectively as surgery.
