Cartilage lesions

The occurrence of cartilaginous problems is common due to wear caused by the repetition of certain movements, or following a trauma to the area. The erosion of the cartilage, however severe, is called chondropathy and causes an altered sliding of the heads of the bones. This results in pain, swelling and difficulty of movement.

If you have been diagnosed with serious cartilage damage in a joint like the knee, you should be aware that recovery can be a very long process.

After an in-depth clinical examination, the doctor will prescribe a magnetic resonance imaging scan (MRI) that can highlight and quantify the area and severity of the lesion.

4 chondropathy stages have been identified with increasing degrees of severity, that also differ in their therapeutic approach: conservative treatments can be used for the most minor injuries, whilst surgery is usually more appropriate for more severe ones.

The aim is always to stop the vicious circle created by friction, which leads to joint degeneration.

The rehabilitation program will be customised according to the location and severity of the lesion. The intention is to reduce pain and restore the tone and endurance of specific muscle groups that play important protective roles.
