The knee joint with its numerous ligaments and surrounding muscles is the largest joint in the body. It is considered to be particularly susceptible and therefore often causes complaints. Knee pain often means a loss of quality of life. Knee pain in young or athletically active people is mainly due to injury, while in older people it is mainly due to wear and tear.
The following symptoms are more common in daily practice:
- torn meniscus
- cartilage injuries
- injury to the anterior and posterior cruciate ligament
- injury of the collateral ligaments
- patellar complaints
- leg axis malalignment
- knee arthrosis
In addition to this selection of knee joint diseases, many others can be diagnosed by means of a corresponding examination by a specialist.
