Mesotherapy treatment of knee : Tendinopathy
Mesotherapy is a very useful tool in sports medicine, it helps to provide effective rapid drug response, and sustained to numerous common pathologies as long as it is used appropriately
The knee is composed of four main ligaments:
the medial collateral ligament (MCL), which prevents the knee from inside
the lateral collateral ligament (LCL), which prevents the knee from outside
the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) that prevents the tibia from front
the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), which prevents the tibia from behind
The knee stability is dependent on the integrity of its knee sprains ligaments.Les correspond to a more or less serious infringement of each ligament. We are talking about mild sprain when the two collateral ligaments presented an elongation that is to say a stretch of its fibers without breaking. Mesotherapy is a very good indication for trauma.
The pain is not a sign of gravity. In fact there is no relationship between pain intensity and severity of the sprain. Diagnoses of gravity faster, it being understood that knee sprain should suggest a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament until proven otherwise.
It is to clarify the characteristics of the pain: - mode of appearance: usually progressive, sometimes brutal (micro-fracture). - Circumstances of appearance: pulses, deceleration, receptions - onset of symptoms, effectiveness of previous treatments. - Location (tip, body, TTA) - hourly rate and it allows to assess the functional impact of tendinopathy by CLASSIFICATION DE BLAZINA :
