Bowed Leg (Varus) and Knock-Knee (Valgus) Malalignment

Leg malalignment, often called “bowed legs” or “knock-knees”, can cause knee pain and limitations. The medical terms for these conditions are varus (bowed legs) and valgus (knock-knees). Leg malalignment is frequently seen in very young children and is usually corrected naturally with growth and physical maturation. In adults, malalignment may occur to one or both […]

Exercises for Patella Pain, Patellar Tendinitis, and Common Operations

Patellar (kneecap) pain is one of the most common reasons patients seek medical treatment at orthopaedic and sports medicine clinics. There may or may not be an injury that causes this problem. Even without a distinct injury, patellar pain may occur suddenly with warning. Or, discomfort may come on gradually over time and slowly become […]

Knee Arthrofibrosis

Knee arthrofibrosis is a complication in which an excessive amount of scar tissue forms that limits the knee’s normal amount of flexion (how far the knee bends) and extension (how far the knee straightens). This problem occurs when the body’s normal healing process after an injury or operation is greatly exaggerated and an excessive amount […]
