Cartilage Injuries & Disorders

see also Meniscal Tears

Whether the cause is trauma or disease, damage to articular cartilage - the smooth cushion that lines the end of the bones where they meet at the joints - can cause significant pain and weakness.

Articular cartilage lines the ends of our joint surfaces and is composed of cells called chondrocytes with a matrix or scaffolding made of collagen and proteins. In healthy joints, this unique and durable material allows bones to move against one another with minimal friction.

When areas of cartilage are worn away or torn away, exposing underlying (subchondral) bone, treatment is designed to fill in the missing area or defect with healthy articular cartilage and provide new protection for the joint surface.

Biomechanical Evaluation

Every visit to our sports medicine foot and ankle doctor, Dr. Robert Sussman, begins with a biomechanical evaluation of your hip, knee, and ankle joints.

No other foot doctor in the Jersey Shore, Neptune, or Monmouth County areas has this capability.

This evaluation utilizes technology to fully analyze the structure and function of your lower body. Tightness or weakness in specific areas, such as your hips or knees, can cause pain and affect your balance or the way you walk (your gait). Based on the results, Dr. Adler can recommend a care plan to include physical therapy, gait training, balance training, or custom-molded orthotics.

At Jersey Shore Podiatry, we also provide many on-site services, such as digital X-rays and fracture care, to expedite a diagnosis and save you time.

An expert evaluation, diagnosis, and comprehensive treatment for your injured foot or ankle is just a phone call away. Call Jersey Shore Podiatry in Neptune, NJ today at (732) 776-7260 or request an appointment online.
