Knee therapy can be a valuable treatment for numerous injuries and disorders, including:
The meniscus cartilage in your knee can rupture because of a trauma or age-related wear and tear. These injuries are typically painful and limiting, as your knee can't operate properly with a meniscal tear.
Degeneration of the joints (osteoarthritis) can occur anywhere in your body, particularly in knees that experience a lot of use. Cartilage and soft tissues in the knee joint begin to dehydrate and deteriorate, so they can't provide a protective cushion between your bones anymore. Friction within the joint leads to inflammation, swelling, and stiffness.
The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) provide strength and stability to your knee joint. Ligament injuries are painful, disabling, and have traditionally been challenging to treat and heal. As a result, it's common for patients with these injuries to undergo arthroscopic surgery and reconstruction.
Chondromalacia is inflammation in the underside of your kneecap and leads to cartilage deterioration. Damaged or worn cartilage makes it difficult to bend or straighten your leg. While it's common in young athletes, chondromalacia also affects older people with arthritis of the knee.
