A 25-year-old male asked:
Torn left knee meniscus twice, torn right achillis tendon, and symptoms of right knee meniscus tear after mri, no trauma, what could be the cause?!

Some activity: You do not have to have a specific injury to cause a meniscal tear.
Sometimes the meniscus can degenerate and
tear from repetitive activities such as running
basketball and other pseudotraumatic sports
i would work a lot on strengthening and
plyometrics to help prevent further problems.
