Knee Conditions Treated At IPRC

Different knee conditions treated at IPRC include the following:

Knee Arthritis

Osteoarthritis of knee is degenerative joint disease characterized by loss of cartilage which is protective tissue covering the end of bones. Latest technologies and appropriate conservative treatment will eradicate your knee pain and improve function.

Patello-femoral Pain Syndrome

This condition is also known as Jumpers knee or Runners knee as it is common in athletes and runners. Pain occurs in front of your knee around patella. It is more common among young female athletes but it can affect anyone.

Frontal Knee Pain

Frontal knee pain occurs on center and anterior aspect of knee.

Patellar Tendonitis

Patellar tendon attaches quadricep muscle to tibia or shin bone. The patellar tendon helps in straightening knee by pulling on tibia. Tendonitis refers to inflammation of tendon but the term tendinosis more accurately describes jumpers knee as it is degenerative condition rather than inflammatory.

Knee Bursitis

Knee bursitis occurs when there is inflammation of one of the bursa in your knees. Bursa are small fluid filled sacs located near your knee. It is characterized by pain and tenderness at knee joint.

Inner Knee Pain

Different conditions can cause pain on the inner aspect of your knee. These can include injuries of ligaments, damage of cartilage and degenerative changes at knee like osteoarthritis. These conditions are mostly caused by repetitive overuse, sports and injuries at your knee joint.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) / Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) Tear

Rupture or tear of ACL is very common among athletes. Ligaments are important for holding your bones together at a joint, ligament damage can lead to instability and decreased performance. ACL prevents your shin bone from sliding out of femur during physical activities. It also provides rotational stability. During sport activities, your knee joint undergoes increased force loads that demands stable and strong knee joint. Proper training reduces risk of ACL injury.

Meniscus Tear

Meniscus is a cartilage that cushions joint. Each of your knee has two menisci, that are horseshoe shaped and works as shock absorbers between your shin bone and femur. High intensity sports like football and rugby lead to traumatic meniscal tear. Degenerative tears can occur among older adults. Most of the meniscal tear do not require surgery. Top notch physical therapy at IPRC can help to accelerate healing and prevent further meniscal injuries.

IT Band Syndrome

Iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS) is very common among athletes like runners and weightlifters. Knee pain in runners is mostly due to ITBS. The iliotibial band is a thick band of fascia that runs on lateral side of leg from hip to just below your knee. This band provides stability during running. Repetitive movement of knee causes continuous rubbing of IT band on lateral condyle of femur which causes inflammation of IT band, causing pain on the side of knee, the main symptom of ITBS.
