Conditions & Treatments


The knees provide stable support for the body. They provide us with the flexibility and stability needed to stand, walk, run, crouch, jump, and turn.

Knee problems can occur in people of all genders, ages, races, and ethnic backgrounds. They can be the result of an acute injury such as a direct blow or sudden movement that strains the knee. Knee problems can also result from chronic inflammatory conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus).
