Can deterioration of the knee cartilage affect the whole leg? (by way of muscle strain, cramps, or weakness when stepping)
Very Good Chance!:
If your knee cartilage is damaged, your knee will not function correctly. Most folks will favor the other knee, or alter their body mechanics to compensate. This may with time lead to dysfunction in other areas. Your body can also involuntarily stop firing muscle groups to try to protect the injured knee.
A good physical therapy program or home exercises may be an option if early enough. ...Read more
