Orthopedic Knee Conditions Treated
In terms of the joints that keep our bodies moving, the knee is one of the largest and most complex. This hinge joint is essential for movement, playing a crucial role in our body’s ability to function every day. The knee is composed of a number of bones, bursae (fluid-filled sacs), ligaments, and tendons. Some tendons (like the patellar tendon) reinforce the structure of the knee while others ligaments (like the anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL) provide stability. All of the components of the knee must be fully functional and healthy in order for the knee to work properly. Knee pain and injuries are very common and can arise from something as simple as regular wear and tear to an injury or medical condition.
