A few weekends back students in the Chicago Intermediate class learned how to assess for and differentiate between dysfunction in the anterior and posterior horns of the medial and lateral menisci.

Similar to degenerative discs in the spine, some degree of meniscal degeneration over time is quite natural.

As the majority of the meniscus itself carries no proprioception, the discomfort and pain resulting from a meniscal tear is actually due to dysfunctional sensory receptors in the surrounding muscles and structures.

Students learned how to both address existing meniscal trauma as well as correct dysfunctions that would over time lead to an imbalance of passive and active forces opposing each other during movement.

While the P-DTR Foundations series is all about learning the various types of sensory receptors that can lead to various issues, the Intermediate course is all about learning how to organize and apply this information in the context of altered biomechanics.
