Cartilage is the fine, rubbery tissue that acts as a cushion between bones or joints. Cartilage has several functions in the human body but it is often subject to injury between joints. When cartilage in a joint is damaged, it can cause severe pain, inflammation and permanent injury. If you have suffered a traumatic injury and you have swelling, stiffness or loss of range of motion in a joint, then you need to seek medical care. Cartilage can be damaged by a direct blow or heavy impact such as a bad fall or a car wreck. Doctors can diagnosis cartilage damage with specialized tests such as MRIs or arthroscopy. Treatments can be non-surgical, such as physical therapy and treatments with medicine or surgical. Cartilage damage should not be left untreated.
