Question normal

As the largest joints in your body, your knees carry your weight and provide stability and flexibility for your everyday movements. They are the focal points of your upper leg bones (femur) and your lower leg bones (tibia and fibula), as well as the discs (menisci), ligaments, tendons and muscles. Inside your knee joint, articular cartilage covers the bones to absorb shock and provide a smooth, gliding surface.

Swollen knees and the need for cartilage injury knee treatment aren’t just the bane of the elderly. Daily wear and tear can eventually lead to common knee injuries and unfortunate knee pain. Overuse or an injury during sports or recreational activities also sets the stage for potential short-term or long-term issues. Given the fragility of your knees, you have plenty of reasons to develop a relationship with your Midtown Manhattan sports medicine and pain management doctor.
