Knee injuries in the workplace happen frequently. The knee is a very complex structure and injuries to the knee are not uncommon in the workplace. The knee joint is made up of cartilage, ligaments, fluid and bone. Muscles and tendons help the knee joint move.
Common Knee Conditions
The most common disease affecting the knee is osteoarthritis (when the cartilege wears away and causes pain and swelling.) Preexisting osteoarthritis can be exacerbated by a fall at work. Injuries to a ligament can also cause problems. Injuries to the ACL or anterior cruciate ligament can occur as a result of a fall or twisting movement.
Conservative measures such as medication, icing, rest and physical therapy I recommended first. If this is unsuccessful, arthroscopic surgery may be recommended. Depending on severity of the injury, occasionally a total knee replacement is necessary.
