Producing Meniscus Joint Healing Solutions
Meniscus-cartilage is present in all human joints: knees, shoulders, angles and hips. It is a weight bearing medium that can suffer tear injuries and disintegrates over time. A torn meniscus is one of the most common knee injuries. Any activity that causes you to forcefully twist or rotate your knee, especially when putting your full weight on it, can lead to a torn meniscus. When the meniscus-cartilage is damaged, or when friction and compression occurs within the joint the result can be pain, arthritis onset and immobility.
Following a meniscus injury, the body will attempt to repair the damage with a scar-type tissue called fibrocartilage. Sometimes this is effective but often the meniscus-cartilage is unable to completely heal on its own. As a result, symptoms may worsen, increasing the risk of further damage, with pain, swelling and the development of arthritis. Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis. Some people call it degenerative joint disease or “wear and tear” arthritis. It occurs most frequently in the hands, hips, and knees.
