The Knee: Injuries Unique to Knee Structure and Function

presented by Terry Malone

Accreditation Check:

There are four primary ligamentous restraints of the knee (MCL, LCL, ACL, PCL) working with the menisci to provide soft tissue constraint. This module is designed to present the other conditions associated with this unique functional unit. The sequence will be related to function, and will move from soft tissues to articular cartilage.

  3. Articular Issues

    3. Articular Issues

    Articular cartilage possesses many unique qualities that make it beneficial for low friction articulation and load distribution to underlying subchondral bone. What happens when this network is disrupted? Join Dr. Terry Malone as he discusses the various zones of articular cartilage, and the essential components that keep each layer functional.

  4. Osteoarthritis

    4. Osteoarthritis

    In this chapter, Dr. Terry Malone addresses how articular cartilage issues can lead to the development of osteoarthritis in many individuals. Participants will learn the fundamentals of osteoarthritis anatomically, as well as intervention methods that are currently implemented to bring patients and athletes, back to pre-injury ability.
