Don’t come unhinged by knee pain.

You can find help at the Bone & Joint Center.

According to a 2012 Gallup Poll, more than one-third of Americans 50 years of age or older experience knee pain.

And it’s no wonder.

This complex hinge joint bears your weight with each step. If you run, jump or climb steps, the pounds of pressure on your knee increase significantly.

No matter your age, increased pressure can impact the health of the bones, cartilages, ligaments, and tendons in your knees. When arthritis, inflammation or an overuse injury causes knee pain, daily movements become difficult.

Knee pain is one of the most common reasons people seek care at Bone & Joint.
