Knee Conditions

Home/Conditions/Knee Conditions

The knees sustain a considerable amount of stress each day as they are responsible for carrying a great deal of the load for the human body. Knee injuries are a common occurrence among athletes, but they are also very common among the general population from injuries sustained in extracurricular activities (such as snow skiing and running) or simple accidents (twisting, falling, etc.). Most individuals who sustain a knee injury do so by tearing or rupturing a ligament. Knees that have sustained previous injuries or who are subjected to years of overuse or athletic training are also at risk for cartilage defects, meniscus damage, and degenerative diseases such as arthritis.
