Knee cartilage erosion

Common Questions and Answers about Knee cartilage erosion


Avatar m tn I had an MRI and it showed only low grade chondromalacia (slight erosion of the cartilage under the kneecap). After a few days of this the pain went away and I was fine for 3 months, at which point it came back as bad as before. I've seen orthopedic specialists who have only recommended NSAIDs and physical therapy. Hope you all find relief!
Avatar n tn Chondromalacia of the patella (knee cap) is a common degenerative process of unknown etiology that involves the cartilage (thinning and erosion) of the articular surface of the patella. Rest, heat, and protection from further injury by strapping or a brace should be done. Isometric quadricep-strengthening exercises performed with the knee in the extended position should be instituted. I hope this information will help you.

Avatar f tn You might try glucosamine/chondroitin supplements to support the cartilage in the knee. Over the counter NSAIDs may help some but you have to be as careful with those as with prescriptions as long-term use can be hard on the liver.
1550149 tn?1340004330 The joints are created by the ends of bones meeting. At this point they are cushioned by cartilage. The knee, hip, shoulder, and other bigger joints have a fluid-filled sac called a bursa ("burs-itis"). The inner lining of the joint has a grease-like fluid called synovial fluid which reduces friction and allows for freedom of movement. If the joint begins to malfunction, this is often coupled by a loss of synovial fluid that would aggravate the bones meeting in the joint.

About 10 months later my son complained that while at his bus stop something popped in his throat and he couldn't breath for a minute and was forced to place pressure on it to pop it back in. I found it very odd and kind of brushed it off and said you're ok now so. Then a couple of months later it happened again.

The disease often affects the wrist joints and the finger joints closest to the hand. It can also affect other parts of the body besides the joints. (See “What Happens in Rheumatoid Arthritis?”) In addition, people with rheumatoid arthritis may have fatigue, occasional fevers, and a general sense of not feeling well.
