About Knee & Lower Leg Injuries

According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), knee injuries are among the most common joint injuries. The knee is the largest of the body’s joints and is held together through a network of ligaments, cartilage, and tendons. While fractures are possible, the most common athletic injuries to the knee are the result of damage to the ligaments or cartilage.

Similarly, the tibia is the most commonly broken long bone of the human body. Due the placement and structure of the knee and lower leg, it is reported by the AAOS to be the most likely to require orthopaedic care. Fractures here require specialized care to make sure they return to full health and load-bearing strength.
