To better understand the onset and progression of osteoarthritis, Nadeen Chahine, PhD, and collaborators at other institutions looked at cells from articular cartilage using atomic force microscopy

High-Impact Activities Can Damage Cartilage
2013-04-18 05:04:02

A new paper published in the Biophysical Journal explains why cartilage may be more susceptible to damage from high impact physical activities such as jumping or running during the early stages of osteoarthritis. The results could lead to early diagnostic tests or new designs for replacement cartilage.
