More about Knee Injuries

Your knee joint is one of the most complex joints in the body. Men and women who play sports or lead an active lifestyle are more likely to sustain an injury. Some of the most common knee injuries include:

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, football, soccer, and many other sports. The majority of injuries are non-contact

Meniscus Tear: 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.

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.
