The knee is comprised of many supporting parts including muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bones. Each part of the knee is also subject to different kinds of injuries and disease. Just like the elbow, the knee is a hinge joint and is capable of supporting activities like running, squatting, jumping, and turning. However, it lacks the same range of motion as the shoulders, wrists, or even elbows.
Knee pain can make it difficult to perform your normal, everyday activities; and, it can also make maintaining an active lifestyle near impossible. Proper expertise is required for correct treatment and rehabilitation.
