Understanding Knee Pain: The Crucial Role of Your Kneecap

Understanding Knee Kinesiography: A Revolutionary Approach to Knee Health

Have you ever thought about why you have a kneecap? Our kneecap gives us an advantage to move more efficiently with each step. When our kneecap isn’t tracking smoothly across the end of the thigh bone, it can cause pain and discomfort. This sliding down and back motion happens four times with every step you take. Imagine how faulty mechanics with each step, at 5000 steps daily, can lead to various forms of anterior knee pain. Having a better understanding of how your knee moves, while you’re walking, can help your orthopedic surgeon individualize the treatment plan for anterior knee pain. 

Understanding the intricacies of how your knee moves, particularly during activities like walking, is pivotal. It not only sheds light on the underlying causes of discomfort but also provides a roadmap for tailored treatment plans aimed at alleviating anterior knee pain. This is where the KneeKG system enters the picture, offering a groundbreaking approach to diagnosing and managing knee-related issues.

KneeKG: Precision Diagnosis for Anterior Knee Pain

The KneeKG System is a cutting-edge diagnostic tool that revolutionizes the assessment of knee biomechanics. By precisely measuring and analyzing gait and knee function, Knee Kinesiography with the KneeKG system enables orthopedic surgeons to identify biomechanical abnormalities that influence patellar tracking. The “catching mechanism” is a critical moment where the patella glides down and back across the end of the thigh bone into a stable groove. Walking is the perfect functional task to assess your anterior knee pain as the catching mechanism occurs 4 times with every step. Any impairment in this mechanism can impact the smooth tracking of the patella, leading to pain and symptoms.

Unveiling the Catching Mechanism

Through sophisticated motion-tracking technology, KneeKG captures real-time data on patellar movement dynamics during various functional activities, including walking, squatting, and stair climbing. This comprehensive assessment provides orthopedic surgeons with invaluable insights into the underlying mechanisms contributing to anterior knee pain, allowing for more accurate diagnosis and targeted treatment interventions.

The Patient at the Center

The core philosophy of our practice at Sachdev Orthopaedics is patient-centric care. The KneeKG System aligns perfectly with this philosophy, offering a more personalized and precise understanding of each patient’s knee health. It acknowledges that each knee, like each patient, has its own story. This approach allows us to tailor our treatments to the individual, not just the condition, fostering a more holistic approach to knee health.
