  • right knee
  • Tina's chief complaint is pain in and around her right knee (pain at best: 2/10) that worsens when she plays tennis and during stair ascents and descents (pain at worst: 8/10). (mhmedical.com)
  • Clinical testing of her right knee revealed increased laxity with a valgus stress test with no pain at the end of range, full tibiofemoral range of motion (ROM), a hypomobile medial patellar glide, and 80% quadriceps strength compared to her left side. (mhmedical.com)
  • MRIs of the right knee obtained with the coronal proton density-weighted fast spin-echo fat-suppression sequence at, A, C, baseline and, B, D, after 48 months. (eurekalert.org)
  • Portland Trail Blazers rookie Greg Oden underwent the procedure on his right knee in early September 2007 and missed the entire 2007-2008 NBA season. (wikipedia.org)
  • Flexion
  • Flexion and extension of the knee may cause crepitus. (wikipedia.org)
  • This mechanism is often seen in sports that involve aggressive knee flexion like ice hockey, skiing, and football. (wikipedia.org)
  • The proximal tibial attachment of the sMCL is the primary stabilizer to valgus force on the knee, whereas the distal tibial attachment is the primary stabilizer of external rotation at 30° of knee flexion. (wikipedia.org)
  • They participate in the formation of the periarticular genicular anastomosis, a network of vessels surrounding the knee that provides collateral circulation capable of maintaining blood supply to the leg during full knee flexion, which may kink the popliteal artery. (wikipedia.org)
  • cartilage degeneration
  • Light to moderate exercise is also recommended to protect against cartilage degeneration in the knee. (eurekalert.org)
  • Compared with the control group, the researchers found that adults who had lost at least 5 percent of their body weight experienced slower knee cartilage degeneration, and this effect was even stronger among participants who lost more than 10 percent of their body weight. (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • inflammation
  • Furthermore, Dr. Gersing and colleagues note that higher levels of body fat can lead to an increase in substances in the blood that trigger joint inflammation , which can raise the risk of OA. (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • Prepatellar bursitis is an inflammation of the prepatellar bursa at the front of the knee. (wikipedia.org)
  • There are several types of inflammation that can cause knee pain, including sprains, bursitis, and injuries to the meniscus. (wikipedia.org)
  • motion of the knee
  • A torn meniscus, which interferes with the normal motion of the knee. (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • Especially acute injuries (typically in younger, more active patients) can lead to displaced tears which can cause mechanical symptoms such as clicking, catching, or locking during motion of the knee joint. (wikipedia.org)
  • Unlike arthritis, prepatellar bursitis generally does not affect the range of motion of the knee, though it may cause some discomfort when the knee is completely flexed. (wikipedia.org)
  • limb
  • Weight-bearing radiographs of the right limb revealed genu varum with moderate joint space narrowing in the patellofemoral and medial tibiofemoral compartments. (mhmedical.com)
  • However, when the stopped limb is extended at the hip joint to a point normally reached at the end of stance during walking, it suddenly flexes and starts walking again provided that the contralateral limb is a position to accept the weight of the hindquarters. (wikipedia.org)
  • Tibial
  • The tibial tuberosity thus forms the terminal part of the large structure that acts as a lever to extend the knee-joint and prevents the knee from collapsing when the foot strikes the ground. (wikipedia.org)
  • One tibial section attaches to soft tissue, 1 cm distal to the joint line. (wikipedia.org)
  • torque
  • The objective of this study is to develop a knee joint model capable of relating electrical parameters to dynamic joint torque as well as knee angle for functional electrical stimulation application. (hindawi.com)
  • Citation
  • citation needed] A meniscus can tear due to an internally or externally rotated knee in a flexed position, with the foot in a flexed position. (wikipedia.org)
  • movements
  • Its organization and biology has a direct relationship with its function as a controller of movements of the knee joint. (indmedica.com)
  • The developed model can be used for simulation of joint movements as well as for control development. (hindawi.com)
  • structural
  • al published a large-scale study claiming that CCI results in better structural repair for symptomatic cartilage defects of the knee than microfracture surgery. (wikipedia.org)
  • Structural correctness is another trait refers to how well the animals skeleton is put together, more specifically their bone structure. (wikipedia.org)
  • sensory
  • It can cause muscle weakness and tightness, in addition to balance and sensory problems, which may all contribute to knee buckling. (medicalnewstoday.com)
