Knee Dysplasia

Disease of the patella (kneecap)

When one talks about knee dysplasia, one usually means the congenital or acquired asymmetry of the patella’s position in the knee, which generally causes knee pain.

If the kneecap is not being used in a uniform manner, this may be because of years of wear and the onset of dysplasia. In this case, the cartilage below the kneecap will have worn out. Knee pain will follow and a timely diagnosis as well as a course of treatment are necessary to prevent this wear on the patella.

Treating knee dysplasia

An x-ray of the kneecap will allude to its symmetry and form, so that dysplasia can either be ruled out or diagnosed and treated quickly. A deformed kneecap can cause pain to develop over many years in the knee, but this may never be the case. Treatment of course is only necessary in cases where pain is present. Through targeted strength conditioning of the knee extensors and stretching of the hamstring, the pain can be stopped. If this fails, depending on the type of condition the patient has, different forms of surgical treatment will be offered to correct this knee dysplasia.
