Plica SyndromeAre you experiencing any of the following symptoms?

  • Pain in or around the knee
  • Snapping sensation along the inside of the knee when it is bent
  • Tenderness
  • A tender band that can be felt under the skin of the knee
  • Swelling in the knee

Plica Syndrome is a condition in which the knee ligaments thicken or fold and become irritated or inflamed. The ligaments in the center of the knee, called the medial plica, are most commonly affected. When the knee is bent, the ligaments are exposed to direct injury. In addition to resulting from sudden injury, plica syndrome can also be caused by overuse and repetitive motion.
