What does the meniscus do exactly?

The meniscus is essentially the “shocks” of your knee. This means that it helps your knee absorb weight and pressure and distribute it evenly. The meniscus is basically two crescent shaped pieces of cartilage that connect the femur and tibia. It also helps your knee move correctly by guiding the movement. The most common way to injure your meniscus is by twisting your knee when your foot is planted.
