Knee Problems Can Be So Painful!
The knee has four significant ligaments: the inner and outer (medial and lateral) collateral ligaments and the anterior and posterior (front and back) cruciate, or crossing, ligaments in the center of the knee. Any or all of these can be injured.
Additionally the menisci, or “mobile knee cartilage”, are important disks that act as bearings transmitting weight from the thigh bone portion of the knee to the tibial or lower portion of the knee. There are two of them; a medial or inner side meniscus and the lateral or outer side meniscus.
Additional knee problems that are seen at our clinics include bursitis and knee replacement for arthritis.
