Knee instability and Prolotherapy

Knee instability can have various causes. Most of the time it results from acute trauma; but even more frequently, instability develops during a degenerative process of the knee cartilages. In fact, in a certain phase of life, the degeneration of the cartilage can proceed faster than the eventual reaction that restores and stabilizes the ligaments. The consequence of this phenomenon, which sometimes falls only in the normal aging process, is a greater disability and laxity of the joint which in turn is responsible for further cartilage damage due to the continuous local irritation caused by the laxity of the ligaments.
