Strengthening and stretching exercises can help ease medial (inner) knee pain caused by chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis and knee tendon bursitis or acute injuries such as a sprained medial collateral ligament (MCL) and partially dislocated kneecap.
Chondromalacia patella occurs when the cartilage at the back of the kneecap begins to soften and break down. This breakdown causes the kneecap to grind against the leg bones that join to form the knee joint, resulting in pain that worsens with activity.
Neal Glaviano, assistant professor of kinesiology in the College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources, has discovered that rehabilitation to address chronic knee pain may not be targeting all the right muscles.
Advances in the application of wearable sensors for gait analysis after total knee arthroplasty: a systematic review
Wearable sensors have become a complementary means for evaluation of body function and gait in lower limb osteoarthritis. This study aimed to review the applications of wearable sensors for gait analysis after total knee arthroplasty (TKA).
