Your knee is the largest joint in the human body. The knee joint is comprised of 3 bones, 4 stabilizing ligaments, muscles, tendons, and cartilage. With all of these moving parts, various injuries ranging from acute to chronic are all too common. Most knee injuries fall under one of two categories- gradual onset or a traumatic injury.
