Every day, in many different jobs across Minnesota, workers are required to twist, turn and put pressure on joints in ways that they do not think too much about — until a work injury occurs. Only then do many workers realize just how important being pain free is to their jobs. Unable to perform the tasks necessary for their jobs, they worry about how to make ends meet and support their families.

Advice on Treatment From a Minneapolis Area Meniscus Tear Attorney
Many people do not know that they have experienced a meniscus tear until the problem has become serious. Meniscus cartilage has no nerve endings, so people do not feel small tears. It is only when the tears become larger and the area around them becomes swollen and painful that people realize they have a problem.
At that time, the knee injury must be treated with ice, anti-inflammatory medicines, physical therapy and rest. Serious knee injuries may even require surgery. If you have experienced one, it is important to take advantage of your medical benefits and get the treatment you need.
