AT A GLANCE
- Too much physical activity may damage knee cartilage over time, but too little activity may also accelerate degeneration.
- Along with the findings on changes in knee cartilage, the study also highlighted the potential of MRI-based T2 relaxation times as an early indicator of cartilage degeneration.
- T2 relaxation times can potentially detect cartilage changes at an earlier stage when still reversible.
