Our Cartilage services
What is cartilage?
Cartilage is strong and flexible connective tissue that works to protect your bones when using your joints to prevent them from rubbing together. It can become damaged over time from wear and tear through repetitive movement, arthritis, or as a result of an injury. Cartilage damage is a common problem in the knee joint and if left untreated, it can lead to a full knee replacement.
Symptoms of knee cartilage damage
There are multiple common symptoms you might be experiencing if you have damage to your cartilage including:
· Stiffness and less range of movement in the joint
· Pain in the knee joint (both when resting and during movement)
· Swelling in your knee
· The joint gives way, locks, or catches
· A clicking or grinding sensation in the knee
Treatment for cartilage damage
There are different treatment options available when it comes to cartilage damage including cartilage repair, regeneration, and cartilage replacement surgery. The best treatment option for you will depend on various factors including your age, activity level, and the severity of the damage. Book a consultation with one of our cartilage specialists to discuss your symptoms and potential treatments.
