Cartilage Injury

What is cartilage?

Most joints are lined by a layer of cartilage. In the knee and the hip this cartilage is yaline articular cartilage which is a very smooth and strong type of cartilage. The cartilage is lubricated by a thin layer of fluid (synovial fluid) and this produces a joint surface that has minimal friction and is able to bear a very heavy load for many years.
