injuries

Over the course of their lifetime, many people will experience knee pain and dysfunction. Arthritis, ligament and tendon damage, and osteoarthritis are common culprits. However, traumatic injury also can be a factor.

Common knee conditions include:

  • Meniscus or ligament tears
  • Iliotibial Band Syndrome
  • Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (PFPS)
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Patellar tendonitis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Bursitis
  • Postoperative conditions

As a complex collection of fibrocartilage, ligaments, tendons, and muscles, the knee endures the shocks of daily living, but is also vulnerable to athletic injury.
