Common Knee Injuries
The knee is the largest joint in the body and has many complex components that can be easily injured. These injuries often include:
- Anterior cruciate ligament injuries
- Medial collateral ligament injuries
- Posterior cruciate ligament injuries
- Torn cartilage (meniscus)
- Fracture or dislocation of the knee cap (patella)
Doctors and orthopedic surgeons use a variety of methods to treat knee injuries, including extensive physical therapy and surgery. Every serious knee injury requires rest, however, and for many individuals, this means that they are unable to work. Lost wages from a knee injury can make it difficult to pay for medical treatment, therapy and other expenses.
