What is a Meniscus?
It is cartilage inside the knee that allows a cushion for the joint during walking and balancing activities. Also, the meniscus allows the knee to straighten and bend smoothly.
Meniscal Tears are More Common than You Think!
In a recent study 63% of the people WITH knee pain had a meniscal damage while 60% of the people WITHOUT knee pain also had meniscal damage.
What is Arthritis?
Arthritis Means “Joint Inflammation”
Common complaints of Arthritis in the Knee:
- Pain with walking
- Pain with getting out of chair
- Pain going up and down stairs.
Arthritis is a common cause of knee pain. Avoid letting arthritis win the battle with everyday activities by performing simple exercises to strengthen the thigh muscles (quadriceps) and improve the flexibility of the hamstring. This will reduce the force through the knee joint and allow you to participate in daily activities with less pain!
