Common Questions and Answers about Knee cartilage cycling

Avatar n tn Thanks a lot for the help, it was very informative. The idea of dashboard knees actually makes a whole lot of sense, after some thought I realized that during cycling I've nailed my bad knee on the cup holder a few times and the pain started after that. The pain had been getting worse almost daily so I think I'm going to set an appointment with an orthopedist. Thanks for the help!
587778 tn?1261397118 In the last two months, I began having pain on the inside of my knee that is tender to the touch. Even when I palpate the bone it hurts. My doctor sent me for an X-ray and it reveal mild osteoarthritis.

Avatar f tn Hi. I am experiencing a noise from my knee every time I walk up stairs or hills. I've been doing some hill work lately and the noise is really starting to get to me. I don't think I had any pain or swelling (but now that I'm worried I feel it may be hurting a little. I'm not sure if this is real or perceived.). It is only in my right knee. Earlier today I felt that it was giving way but this felt minor.
Avatar f tn t ( and never did) jog or play sports that would cause strain on my joints (just occasionally going to the gym, swimming, some yoga and dancing to keep healthy), I do not have close relatives with joint or cartilage issues like arthritis, I do not recall injuring the knee but it's possible I hit it maybe without noticing.
Avatar n tn It hurts when bending knee to chest, or after running, walking, cycling, basically overuse. I use a heating pad which helps at night. Is this a hip flexor injury and how do I treat it?
Avatar n tn A study shows that you can regrow knee cartilage. The technique used in this study spurs knee cartilage to grow back, which could cut pain and improve knee function, wrote Kevin Stone, MD, and colleagues. Stone's study appears in The Journal of Arthroscopic and Related Surgery.
Avatar f tn Having recently torn the cartilage in my left knee and simultaneously diagnosed ‘with a little arthritis’ in the same, and with swelling behind the knee. My Sport’s Ortho said that the swelling was common with the torn cartilage but should go down in time. I began searching on the Web for a magical pain relief remedy (other than my already supplementation of Glucosamine Sulfate, Chondrotin, Taurine, Collagen, HA, Cats Claw, Bromelain, MSM, etc., etc., etc….
Avatar m tn Grade I, softening of the cartilage; Grade II, fissures; Grade III, partial thickness loss of cartilage; Grade IV, exposure of subchondral bone. The problem with hyaline cartilage, which is what covers the bones inside of joints, is that it cannot regenerate itself. It has limited repair capabilities. If it does repair a small portion of the articular cartilage, it is with fibrocartilage. Fibrocartilage is sort of a scar for cartilage.
Avatar n tn The other area in which there is cartilage loss in at the outer part of the main thigh bone at the knee joint. However the rest cartilage disc in between the knee joint appear normal from this report. With regards to treatment, a lot of decisions are based on the clinical picture - how much this is affecting you and your activities and what the knee is like on examination. I hope this has been of some help and has answered your questions.
Avatar m tn I mean the distance between the bones has narrowed in the right knee quite considerably. May I ask is there anything I can do to strengthen the cartilage in the right knee to avoid a possibly inevitable operation? Gemini, I have also started taking cod liver oil, could you please give me your thoughts on that and/if there is any need to take them? Many many thanks again.
Avatar f tn Doing crunches and planks won't get rid of that pesky belly fat, you will have to take up a form of aerobic exercise to burn fat. For a recovering knee injury I'd suggest either taking up swimming or even cycling.
Avatar f tn A meniscal tear that goes untreated is like sandpaper in your knee and will rub on the articular cartilage and cause damage and can lead to arthritis or an exacerbation of any current arthritis. Good luck!
Avatar f tn there is hypertrophy and surface irregularity of the patellar articular cartilage.
Avatar m tn I began to get pain in my toe joints, when this occurred, I must have started to compensate for this by putting more stress on my knees. Currently, I have a lot of knee pain, with my left knee hurting much more than my right. However, my right knee also hurts depending on how it is used; additionally, it also cracks (without pain), when I use it.
Avatar f tn net/sport-injuries/knee-pain/acute-knee-injuries/knee-articular-cartilage-injury Your accident could have caused this or it could have been happening over time. But either way, that is now seen, it's now a fact of your knee. Sorry about that! RICE is often applied to help with it. (rest, ice, compression and elevation) to reduce swelling. Doctor can give a professional ice wrap. If doc says it's okay, you can take ibuprofen. Some people are okay with just that.
Avatar f tn The report describes, 1. Loss of articular cartilage (cartilage covering the bone is a joint), secondary to degenerative changes. 2. Low lying knee cap with associated inflammation and scarring. 3. Increased fluid in the joint space, indicative of inflammation and a possible loose body. 4. Degenerative changes at the inner end. 5. Mild fibrous tissue formation around the graft. 6. Thinning on the articulate cartilage around the tibia. 7.
Avatar f tn Moderately thinned with full thickness denuded cartilage across the central weightbearing aspect measuring 7 mm wide x 11 mm AP. Lateral tibial plateau cartilage: Mildly thinned peripherally. No lateral joint line osteophytosis. Medial meniscus: Grossly intact. Medial femoral condyle cartilage: Mildly thinned. Medial tibial plateau cartilage: Minimally thinned. No medial joint line osteophytosis.
Avatar m tn I just went back the other day for my follow up because my knee pain has gotten worse and he thinks i have damaged cartilage in my knee and if i do he said i need surgery. So if i do have to have surgery how long is the recovery and will i have to wear knee braces if i play these sports from now on?
Avatar m tn Right Knee - There is patchy grade 2/3 chondral thinning of the medial compartment articular cartilage. Grade 2 chondral thinning of the patellofemoral cartilage. The lateral compartment cartilage is intact. Mild marginal spurring of the medial compartment. Small focus of multidirectional tearing of the body of the medial meniscus including a small radial component of tear. Left Knee - There is patchy grade 2/3 chondral thinning of the medial compartment articular cartilage.

Avatar n tn I am a 53 yr old female, who danced & taught Ballet for 36 yrs, now retired. I also have MS & RA. 15 yrs ago, I had arthroscopic surgery on my left knee for torn cartilage; I've never had any problems w/ that knee since. Until several months ago.
1524655 tn?1291420532 The pain has gotten less indeed. However, after reading articles about articular cartilage, I understand that articular cartilage has limited ability for healing, escpecially if its not all the way to the bone (Grade 4). Although the surgeon said "no surgery needed", I still don't undertand how things would get better... How could my grade 2 defect possibly heal, since it is not all the way to the bone?
Avatar m tn While waiting for your dr. appointment, have you taken an x-ray to see if there's noticable damage? In the meantime, there may be a natural remedy for relief; it's helped my torn cartilage and arthritis in my left knee... no pain, no swelling... Here's my story: Castor Oil & Pain??? Call it what you wish, Voodoo, Witchcraft, ‘BS’, whatever….but it DID work for me.
Avatar f tn Also being only 3 months post op, your knee is still healing. I very much think that you aggravated your knee and probably just have some fluid in the joint which is accounting for the popping sensation. It can take a while to get better. I would suggest some over the counter NSAIDs for the discomfort and swelling, as long as there is no contraindication for you doing so. I would expect you should notice some improvement by two weeks. Good luck to you!
