The knee is one of the largest and most complex joints in the body and is most easily injured. It is made up of: bones, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. Many knee injuries can be successfully treated with simple measures, such as bracing and rehabilitation exercises. Other injuries may require surgery to correct. The most common knee injuries include fractures around the knee, dislocation, and sprains and tears of soft tissues. Pain and swelling are the most common signs of knee injury.
