A meniscus injury damages the tissue between the femur and the shin bone. This can happen when the knee joint rotates too far during sports or other vigorous activities and often occurs at the same time as other knee injuries. Since the meniscus weakens with age, the risk increases for older athletes. More than 40 percent of people 65 years of age or older experience a meniscus injury.
