The knee is a commonly injured joint especially given the Lake Tahoe region’s many outdoor recreation activities in both the summer and winter months.

Sudden, or acute, knee injuries are the most common and may include sprains, strains, dislocations, fractures or tears to the ligaments or meniscus. Overuse injuries are less common and can cause inflammation, irritation and pain.

Advanced knee arthritis can be treated surgically with a partial or total joint replacement.
