Knee Injuries Clinic

The knee holds the kneecap in place and attaches the lower end of the thighbone to the upper end of the shinbone. The knee functions as both a hinge and a shock absorber. Because it supports nearly the entire weight of the body during walking, running and jumping, the knee is vulnerable to a variety of injuries.

Our multidisciplinary team works with you to explore the best solutions for repairing, strengthening and rehabilitating your knee joint.

Our clinic typically cares for:

  • ACL tears or other ligament sprains
  • Meniscal tears
  • Cartilage injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome, pain under the front of the knee or kneecap
  • Overuse injuries
