Special Test for Meniscus – Forced Range of Motion

By Insights No Comments

Physical Therapist Mike Reinold gives community members a test for Meniscus by bringing the knee to full deep knee flexion and full knee hyperextension.

According to Reinold: “With full knee flexion, the posterior aspect of the meniscus is engaged, and with full knee extension the anterior is engaged. This is often painful in people with meniscal pathology, but you could also have a mechanical block of the motion.”
