Anatomy of the Knee
Cushioned by a well designed system of cartilage, ligaments, and muscles, the knee is one of the most complex joints in your body.
The stability of the joint is reliant on the strength of the ligaments that connect the bones. The movement of the knee relies on the tendons that link your leg muscles to the bones.
Importance of the Knee
With the knees being one of the larger joints in the body, it has to take part of the load in your day-to-day activities.
Athletics, work and even daily chores around the home can put a beating on your knees. A sudden lateral or aggressive movement the wrong way or the compounding effect of long-term wear can ultimately lead to failure or injury in one or more of the structures in your knee.
When a disease or injury disrupts the normal functions of a knee, it can cause pain, muscle weakness and limited activity. Whether you’re a weekend warrior or an active individual, at TCO you’ll find customized expert care for all of your knee-related conditions and injuries.
