Common Causes For Knee Injuries
Sports-related knee injuries are quite common but they are not the only cause for knee injury:
Suddenly stopping or changing direction quickly can cause injury to the ligaments of the knee.
Jumping off something and landing too hard on your feet can cause tears in the tendons.
Inflammation of the joints of the knee due to overuse or repetitive tasks such climbing stairs or walking.
Weakened quadriceps muscles can add undo stress on the knee, making it more prone to injury.
