What causes a knee injury?

Athletes often experience knee injuries from sudden impacts or overuse. Promptly seek advice from a Sports Medicine Specialist to avoid worsening conditions. Most injuries can be treated without surgery via physical therapy, injection therapy, and bracing. Severe cases may require minimally invasive surgery by our Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeons.


In most cases, athletes suffer knee injuries as the result of a sudden trauma or impact such as a direct hit to the knee or from a change of direction while the foot is planted.  In other instances, knee injuries may be the result of overexertion and muscular imbalance which forces the knee to be repetitively strained.

No matter what the sport or activity, limited motion or flexibility in the knees has a direct impact on speed and power and can compromise your performance.

It is important to see a Sports Medicine Specialist at the first sign of knee pain as many knee conditions are progressive and will worsen if left untreated.

Common knee injuries include:

  • Meniscus Tears
  • ACL Injuries
  • MCL / PCL Injuries
  • Tendonitis of the Knee
  • Patellofemoral Pain (Jumper’s Knee or Runner’s Knee)
  • Hamstring Injuries
  • Knee Instability
  • Patellar Dislocation
