Knee Orthopedic Care in Raleigh, NC
Are you concerned about the health of one or both knees? All too often, people who are suffering from treatable knee conditions soldier on, believing that those aches and pains are just a sign of age. Whether you are a star athlete or only engage in light walking, healthy knees are important to preserve.
The knees are major weight-bearing joints. Throughout your life, wear and tear should be expected. However, in many cases, conditions such as osteoarthritis can result in progressive wear and tear that leads to pain, inflammation, and limited mobility.
