Knee

Knee

The knee joint is a simple joint that predominantly moves in two directions, bending and straightening. Above and below this joint are found two biomechanically complex joints, the hip joint that is a ball and socket joint, and the foot and ankle complex made up of many smaller bones and joints adapting to the ground and surfaces we stand, walk or run on. Should the knee be put under strain in other directions it can be injured. If this happens repeatedly over time you will encounter overuse type injuries.

Early diagnosis and determining reasons and cause to the pain will set you on the path of recovery allowing you to return to what you love doing sooner
