Knee Joint Treatment in New York

The knee joint is a simple single plane of motion joint, connecting the thigh bone (femur) to the shin bone (tibia). It is classified as a synovial hinge joint, and it is designed to help absorb impact during weight-bearing activities like walking, running, and jumping.

The knee joint is supported by four ligaments: the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), the medial collateral ligament (MCL), and the lateral collateral ligament (LCL). In addition, there are two crescent-shaped pieces of cartilage called menisci, which act as shock absorbers and distribute weight evenly across the joint and through the lower limbs.

    In my opinion, what really sets Matthew apart is his ability to pay attention to the individual and understand each person's idiosyncratic needs. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
