Knee: a wonder of nature. Unlike the shoulder or hip joint which provide some degree of stability from the bone structure, the knee depends 100% on ligaments, muscles, tendons and cartilage to hold everything together. This is why the knee is so prone to injury when external forces and stresses are applied (i.e. torque, compression etc.)—Dr. Kessler

As the principal weight-bearing joint in the human body, the knee is susceptible to a wide range of difficulties. Awkward movements, falls and collisions, sudden twists, excessive force or overuse can result in a range of injuries to the knee joint and the structures supporting it. Knee pain can also come from inflammatory and degenerative conditions such as bursitis, tendonitis, or gout, with the most common of these conditions being osteoarthritis, which creates a loss of cartilage and damages the cushioning fluid in the knee joint. Sprain, strain, dislocation of the kneecap, or disorders of other parts of the body, such as the hip, may also cause knee pain.
Osteoarthritis is the most common joint condition worldwide. In America alone, more than 21 million people suffer from osteoarthritis; more than 14 million of those are estimated to have osteoarthritis of the knee.
* Patient Story
"I couldn't keep up with my family. Just walking in the park, my knee would buckle and give way. I was the lagger. I'd have to sit on a bench and watch them doing things I used to do not so long ago myself."
