Cartilage Injuries Can Be Healed
Cartilage is the tough, flexible tissue found in many areas of the body, including the ends of bones at a joint, the bronchial tubes, the intervertebral discs (in your back), the ears and the nose.
Cartilage is an important structure composed mainly of a tough connective tissue and water; it has no nerve endings and no blood supply of its own. The smooth surface of cartilage allows bones to slide easily against each other and provides a cushion within joint spaces.
Injured, inflamed or damaged cartilage leads to abnormal joint movement and pain in adjacent structures, such as bone. Because cartilage has no blood supply, injured or damaged cartilage can take a long time to heal relative to muscle or bone. Learn More
Many healthcare professionals have found that Cartilage Injury symptoms can be eliminated with sustained results. With their innovative treatment approaches, patients can experience symptom elimination in 2 weeks to 1 month for mild and moderate conditions.
The healthcare professionals listed here have published their case studies. You can contact them for help or contact us for doctors near you.
List of healthcare professionals who have published clinical studies and provide treatment for Cartilage Injury:
Cartilage structures and functions can be relatively easily harmed, often resulting in damage. Such damage can result from a variety of causes, resulting from a bad fall or sport-accident (traumatic), previous knee injuries (post-traumatic) or wear and tear over time. Immobilization for long periods can also result in cartilage damage.
Articular cartilage damage might be found on its own, but it will more often be found in conjunction with injuries to ligaments and menisci. People with previous repairs to ligaments and or menisci often face more chances to articular cartilage damage due to altered mechanics of the joint.
Though articular cartilage damage is not life threatening, it does strongly affect the quality of life. Articular cartilage damage is often the cause of severe pain, swellings, strong barriers to mobility and severe restrictions to the patient's activities. Over the last decades, however, surgeons and biotech ventures have elaborated promising procedures that contribute to articular cartilage repair.
