A member asked:

Where is the medial mensical root in the knee? what is the purpose of a j brace? does popping of the knee joint mean that the meniscus is torn?

The Attachment: The meniscus is c-shaped. At each end is a firm attachment to the bone. That's the meniscus root. A j brace helps stabilize the patella (kneecap). A torn meniscus is one reason for the knee to pop.
