High impact sports can be murder on knee joints. Among all the joints in your body, the knee joint supports the most weight. Add to that the stress and pressure of high impact sports, and you have ripe conditions for knee injury.
When it comes to getting injured, this is not something you’ve planned, and set a date for on your icalendar. Injuries happen suddenly, and with no prior planning. You’re walking into the meeting. You check your watch to make sure you’re on time. You trip, and your face meets the sidewalk, and your knee dislocates at some point in the fall. Or, your sporty teen decides that today is the day to “show off” and jump off the back of the metal spectator stands and a fracture occurs.
