It contains a bone-cartilage interface and a synovial body.[doi.org] Exercises that will increase quadriceps, hamstring and calf strength include ¼ squats, leg press and leg extension.[pamf.org]

  • Bunion

    […] for limiting flexion and extension following ACL reconstruction.[en.wikipedia.org] Rehabilitation braces are used to limit the movement of the knee in both medial and lateral directions- these braces often have an adjustable range of motion stop potential[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Bursitis

This may be confused with a meniscal tear on physical examination.[emedicine.com] Physical examination reveals pain with resisted hip abduction and external rotation.
