Your knee-joint is one of the most complex joints in your body and is more likely to be injured if you are an athlete, or lead an active lifestyle.
Common Knee Injuries:
Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury: Changing direction rapidly, slowing down when running, and landing from a jump may cause tears in the ACL. Risks: Skiing, basketball and football.
Medical Collateral Ligament (MCL) injury: Injuries to the MCL are usually caused by a direct blow to the outside of the knee. Risks: Full contact sports such as football or soccer.
Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) injury: The PCL is often injured when an athlete receives a blow to the front of the knee or makes a simple misstep on the playing field. Risks: Full contact sports such as football or soccer.
Torn cartilage: When people talk about torn knee cartilage, they are usually referring to the torn meniscus. The meniscus is a tough, rubbery cartilage that acts like a shock absorber. Meniscus may also tear with simple activities such as stepping out of a car, working in the garden, or turning in the kitchen. Risks: Full contact sports such as football or soccer.

Treatment: A variety of treatments are available, but if you have persistent pain, catching, or swelling in your knee, a procedure known as Arthroscopy may help relieve these problems. This surgical procedure is often performed on an outpatient basis allowing you to return home on the same day.
