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. If your knee is severely damaged by arthritis or injury, it may be hard for you to perform simple activities such as walking or climbing stairs. You may even begin to feel pain while you’re sitting or lying down. Injuries and diseases of the knee require unique expertise for successful treatment. The surgeons at Orthopedic Sports Enhancement Center provide comprehensive knee care, from diagnosis through treatment and rehabilitation.
