In brief: Depends...

Treatment of meniscus tears depend on your age, the type of tear, the amount of pain you are having, if you have any other issues (arthritis, ligament injures).
Not all tears require treatment --- only some tears require treatment. Some can be treated observation, rest, activity modification, some tears will feel better with therapy, and others may require surgery. Talk w/ your doctor.
