“I landed funny or twisted awkwardly on my knee, and now it catches or locks when I walk”. Well you very may well have a meniscal injury. What is it exactly? The meniscus is soft cartilage within the knee joint that absorbs force as you walk, run, squat etc. A tear in this structure is often painful, can cause the locking sensation (along with the associated swelling), and can be quite debilitating.
