Biblical application

Biblical Application

  • Ephesians 3:14 “For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,”

  • Good shoes

  • Don’t jump from high places

  • Stretch daily



  • Osteoarthritis - A form of arthritis, occurring mainly in older persons, that is characterized by chronic degeneration of the cartilage of the joints.

  • Infrapatellar Fat Pad - The infrapatellar fat pad refers to a region of fatty tissue lying deep to the patellar tendon, also known as Hoffa's fat pad.

  • Popliteus - A muscle located in the floor of the popliteal space in close contact with the posterior capsule of the knee joint.

  • Orthopaedic Surgeon - Orthopaedic surgeons evaluate and treat bone, joint, tendon and ligament disorders and diseases

  • Prepatellar Bursa - The prepatellar bursa is a synovial-lined potential space lying between the skin surface and the anterior aspect of the patella.
