Gliederung

Text

Austria managed more than 84 thousand knee surgeries in 2009 (Statistic Austria). Anterior knee pain is a common preexisting condition to arthritis and joint destruction. With this case report we are presenting the benefit of specific muscle exercise in order to achieve a balanced Extension/Flexion ratio and to strengthen the medial portion of the m. quadriceps. We want to accentuate the early improvement and the long lasting benefit with only daily routine movement.
