Knee Injury Information

The knee is a complex system of supportive and moving parts including bones, cartilage, muscles, tendons and ligaments, each of which is subject to injury or disease. It is a hinge and quite able to supply enough strength for running, squatting, jumping and turning. But it doesn’t have the range of motion of other joints like the shoulders, wrists or even the elbows. In fact, it has almost no ability to rotate. Injuries and diseases of the knee require unique expertise for successful treatment.
