Cartilage / Arthrosis
Osteoarthritis is damage to the articular cartilage, the severity of which can vary greatly. The individual stages of arthrosis range from slight impairment of the cartilage surface to complete wear of the joint surfaces.
Many factors can promote the development of knee osteoarthritis, such as disturbance of the joint statics, instability, increased wear or inflammation. Therefore, it is not only important to treat osteoarthritis according to its stages, i.e. depending on the degree of damage to the cartilage, but also to consider the overall situation in order to find and eliminate the causes of the damage.
