Signs & symptoms

Symptoms of meniscal subluxation may include pain in the knee, swelling, stiffness, clicking or popping sensations in the knee, difficulty straightening or bending the knee, and a feeling of instability or giving way.


Diagnosis of meniscal subluxation is typically made by a medical professional, such as an orthopedic surgeon, through a physical examination of the knee and possibly imaging tests such as an MRI or X-ray.


Treatment for meniscal subluxation may depend on the severity of the condition, but can include rest, ice, compression, and elevation (known as the RICE method), physical therapy, and/or surgery. In some cases, a brace or knee immobilizer may be recommended to help support the knee and prevent further damage.
