Post-traumatic Arthritis

on December 22, 2015
Posttraumatic arthritis is form of arthritis that develops after an injury to the knee.  

For example, a broken bone may damage the joint surface and lead to arthritis years after the injury.

Meniscal tears and ligament injuries can cause instability and additional wear on the knee joint, which over time can result in arthritis.
