ABOUT KNEE PAIN
Your knee issues don't need to own your every move.
The knee is a vulnerable joint that bears a great deal of stress from everyday activities, such as lifting and kneeling, and from high-impact activities, such as jogging and aerobics. Whether your knee pain is the result of an injury or a sudden movement that strains the knee , Dr. Matti Palo is here to provide expert care that can help you get back doing the things you love.
About your Knees
The knee is the largest joint in your body. It is made up of four main things: bones, ligaments, cartilage and tendons. In a healthy knee, the surfaces of the thigh and shinbones are smooth and lubricated by joint fluid so they can roll, rotate, and glide easily over each other. Cartilage covers the bones evenly, allowing smooth movement. Protected by the kneecap and held in place by muscles and ligaments the joint bends freely.
You're in Good Hands.
