Your knee is guarded and cushioned by a cartilage known as meniscus. A meniscus tear, therefore, is an extremely painful and discomforting situation. It occurs very frequently and has emerged as one of the most commonly occurring cartilage injuries. What makes a meniscus tear an extremely common phenomenon is the way it can tear that is all it takes is a twist of the knee for it to happen.
People involved in sports mostly face the brunt of this form of injury. The risk of getting meniscus torn increases with age and tends to occur at the slightest change of direction of movement.
Some of the symptoms of a torn meniscus are:
- Pain and inflammation: It goes without saying that an internal injury of the cartilage or tearing away of it would inevitably result in extreme pain and inflammation near the knee.
- Immobility: The extreme pain and inflammation, which follows will inevitably make it difficult to move. Since the pain occurs in the joint, you will have difficulty in walking and any forceful movement will only aggravate the pain.
- Locking of the knee: Locking of the knee refers to a situation when you are unable to move your knee. This occurs most commonly after you have your meniscus torn.
Notwithstanding its frequency of occurrence, there are several ways, by which you can treat a torn meniscus. Some of the ways are:
- Apply ice: In order to get some relief, applying ice is a suitable option. If you apply ice every day for some time, it wonders in reducing swelling and the consequent pain.
- Use a bandage: In order to control the swelling, it is important that you cover your knee with an elastic bandage.
- Change the posture: It is important that you keep the affected knee in an elevated plane, in order to ensure an efficient blood supply and a consequent relief from pain.
Some Medical Treatments
There are many things to consider when deciding how to treat your torn meniscus, including the extent and location of the tear, your pain level, your age and activity level, your doctor's preference, and when the injury occurred. Your medical treatment choices are:
- Nonsurgical treatment with compression, elevation, and physical therapy. This may include wearing a temporary shoulder brace.
- Surgical repair to sew the tear together.
- Partial meniscectomy, which is surgery to remove the torn section.
- Total meniscectomy, which is surgery to remove the entire meniscus. This is generally avoided, because this option increases the risk for osteoarthritis in the shoulder.
- Whenever possible, meniscus surgery is done using arthroscopy, rather than through a large cut in the shoulder.
Eating food contaminated with bugs leads to more than half a billion cases of illness a year, the World Health Organization warns.
It says this "global threat" contributed to 351,000 deaths in 2010.
Unsafe foods, for example under cooked meat, can cause 200 problems - from diarrhoea to cancer.
But changes in food production mean there are more opportunities for meals to harbour harmful bugs or chemicals, experts say.
A local food problem can quickly turn into an international emergency
Unsafe foodstuffs can contain many types of harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites or chemicals.
Examples include under cooked meat, fruits and vegetables contaminated with faeces and shellfish containing marine toxins.
But the WHO says investigating these outbreaks has become increasingly challenging as single plates of food often have ingredients from many countries.
In its first WHO report on this issue, its director-general Dr Margaret Chan warns: "A local food problem can quickly turn into an international emergency.
"Food production has been industrialized, and its trade and distribution have been globalized.
"These changes introduce multiple opportunities for food to become contaminated with harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites or chemicals."
The analysis, which pulls together scientific literature from across the globe, shows:
Most deaths are caused by pathogens such as salmonella, E. coli and norovirus
The majority of lives lost are in Africa and South East Asia
40% of the deaths are among the under-5s, the most vulnerable group
Experts say illnesses caused by food also carry major economic risks.
They estimate the E. coli outbreak in Germany in 2011 cost about US$1.3bn (£876m) in losses for farmers and industries.
WHO leaders are calling on governments to urgently strengthen food safety systems.
On April 7, the WHO launches its food safety campaign, From Farm to Plate.
It aims to prompt the public and governments to consider where individual ingredients in meals come from and question whether these are properly and safely handled at every stage.
How to be food-safe:
Wash hands, surfaces and equipment before preparing food
Separate raw and cooked food - use separate utensils for handling raw foods
Safe temperatures - do not keep cooked food at room temperature for more than two hours. Keep food piping hot (above 60 C) before serving
Use safe water to wash raw fruit and vegetables
