The knee joint is one of the strongest and most important joints in the human body. It allows the lower leg to move relative to the thigh while supporting the body's weight. Movements at the knee joint are essential to many everyday activities, including walking, running, sitting, and standing.

The knee includes muscles, nerves, bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and other connective tissue. Many musculoskeletal conditions and injuries cause pain, and often, our specialists can help reduce or eliminate pain.
