What is Knee Joint Contracture?

Description of the disease

Knee joint contracture is a condition in which the joint becomes less mobile due to the shortening of muscles, tendons, or joint capsules. This limits the full range of motion of the joint and can cause painful sensations.


  • Fixed knee joint contracture
  • Movable knee joint contracture


Symptoms of knee joint contracture may include reduced joint mobility, painful sensations when attempting to flex or extend the leg, swelling, and stiffness of the joint.


The causes of knee joint contracture may be related to injury, inflammation, or prolonged lack of movement in the joint.


The diagnosis of knee joint contracture is carried out through physical examination, X-rays, computer tomography, or magnetic resonance imaging.


Treatment of knee joint contracture may include physiotherapy, muscle stretching, drug therapy, and sometimes surgical intervention may be required.


To prevent knee joint contracture, regular exercise, maintaining a healthy weight, and avoiding joint overuse are recommended.


Orthopedic surgeon or traumatologist is responsible for the treatment of knee joint contracture.
