Knees are by their nature susceptible to injury. As with shoulders, knees are a complex system of bones, ligaments, muscles, and soft tissues that must work in tandem to ensure full range of motion when walking. The physical dynamics of a car accident can cause damage to the underlying structures of the knees. Typically, we see injuries to the:
- medial collateral ligament (MCL);
- anterior cruciate ligament (ACL);
Knee injuries can result in the serious instability of the joint leading to disability. Often surgery is required to repair an injured knee.
