Surrounding the knee joint is the synovial membrane, which consists of soft tissue folds that lubricate the knee joint with synovial fluid. For a number of reasons, the synovial membrane can become inflamed — a condition called knee synovitis.
When the synovial membrane becomes inflamed, the medial plica (part of the membrane) can be pinched, requiring knee synovitis treatment.
The goal of knee synovitis treatment is to remove the inflamed, irritated area of the synovial membrane, as the following video shows.
The orthopedics departments of John C. Lincoln Hospitals invite you to watch this interactive knee synovitis treatment video.
