Could a torn lateral meniscus in your knee heal, then tear easily a few weeks later?

Acl tears bleed: Anterior cruciate ligaments tears generally cause a significant hemarthrosis( blood in joint) when acutely torn.This is from the tear itself and associated injuries.. Because the ligament is intraarticular it has poor helping potential when the blood supply is disrupted, unlike the medial collateral ligament ( mcl ). Partial ( one bundle) tears have poor healing potential for same reason ...Read more
