How Does the Knee Work?
The three bones that comprise the knee joint are the femur (thighbone), the tibia (shinbone), and the patella (kneecap). The knee can be described as a modified hinge joint, similar to the hinge on a door. However, the knee not only bends back and forth like a hinge, it has a complex rotational component that occurs with flexion and extension of the knee. The knee is a major weight-bearing joint that is held together by muscles, ligaments and other important soft tissue. Cartilage is the material inside the joint that provides shock absorption to the knee during weight-bearing activities such as walking or stair climbing.
Considering Hip Surgery in Atlanta?
Aside from knee pain treatment, hip pain is also one of the most common complaints for orthopedic patients, and hip surgery at our Atlanta facility can relieve the discomfort associated with this common problem. Hip pain caused from an injury or degenerative disease can often be treated with rehabilitation and non-surgical solutions. Listen in as Dr. William Craven talks about when to use ice or heat for an injury. More severe issues or persistent chronic pain may need to be addressed with a surgical solution such as: hip resurfacing, hip arthroscopy, hip replacement and hip fracture surgery. To understand the best treatment option for hip pain, it’s important to get a professional evaluation from a physician who specializes in lower-extremity knee surgery and hip surgery and can pinpoint the cause to make appropriate recommendations.
