In brief: Usually

The "grind" is a test typically with the patient laying on their belly and knee bent and the doctor presses down on the foot while grinding the knee.
It is a simple aid and is not an absolute diagnosis. Occasionally a cartilage can roll but typically a displacement is from a tear.
