Knee injuries are some of the most difficult injuries to recover from. Often, the injury goes unnoticed right after an accident. A knee injury might be overshadowed by other injuries. Sometimes, symptoms grow slowly until the knee becomes bothersome, and eventually the problems become debilitating. Unfortunately, many people are not aware that a knee injury could have been caused by the fault of another.
The mechanism inside the knee is one of the most simple and yet complicated systems in your body. Made up of bone, muscle, cartilage, ligaments and fluid, everything must be in top shape, or you experience discomfort. Most bone injuries to the knee require surgery of some kind, and even the smallest strain, sprain or tear can seriously affect your ability to walk and perform other normal daily activities. A knee injury can make walking up or down stairs, stepping on or off a curb, climbing or going down a hill, lifting heavy objects, crawling or even stooping to pick up something from the floor can be painful, or even impossible.
Causes of Knee Injuries
Knee injuries can be caused in any number of ways. Most associate a knee injury with some kind of a fall or a twisting injury, such as stepping in a hole or falling from one level surface to another. But knees can be struck, twisted or turned in an automobile accident or wrenched out of place when struck by a large object.
Medical advancements in the field of orthopedic medicine have made knee injuries very treatable and the long term results significantly more promising than they once were. However, even though the injuries can appear to be healed, the result of the injury can leave a knee in a weakened condition, resulting in future problems with conditions such as arthritis or other long-term joint conditions.
