The knee is the largest joint in the body, and one of the most easily injured. It contains ligaments that control motion and help brace the joint against abnormal types of motion. It also contains cartilage, which serves as cushioning to absorb shock during motion.
Sports medicine experts at University of Miami Health System are experienced in treating conditions and injuries of the knee. Knee problems can result from overuse, trauma, or disease in the joints, ligaments (connect bones together), or tendons (connect muscle to the bones).
