Lowell Knee Injury Attorney
Knee injuries can be difficult to heal and can make performing simple daily tasks very difficult. The knee contains four bones and many ligaments, muscles and tendons. These parts make the largest joint in the body, and one that has to accomplish many types of performance. The knee is important in tasks as simple as sitting and walking and as complex as skiing, jumping and swimming.
Because there are so many parts and the functioning of the knee is so complex, there is much that can go wrong. In fact, knees are the most easily injured parts of the body. Knee injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Dislocated kneecaps
- Torn or stretched ligaments and tendons
Knee injuries occur because of aging joints, overuse, impact sports, sports that strain the joint, car accidents, work-related injuries, slips and falls, and many other types of incidents. When knee injuries occur, they can be painful, difficult and expensive to heal. They often require surgery, medication and substantial physical therapy.
It is possible to get a knee replacement in extreme cases of knee injury. Some injuries can be treated surgically or with rest and physical therapy.
