The knee joint is a complex joint formed between three bone - the thigh bone, the leg bone and the knee cap.
The knee joint is held in position by four main pillars - the two cruciate ligaments and the two collateral ligaments.
When one or more of the pillars gets torn, the knee starts 'giving way' or is unstable.
These are 4 reasons why 'giving way' of the knee can be harmful:
- Abnormal movements cause damage to the cartilage. Cartilage damages are permanent and don't heal.
- Excessive movements can strain the remaining normal ligaments and damage them.
- The meniscus or the shock-absorber of the knee gets crushed between the thigh and leg bones when the knee is unstable.
- The risk of reinjury is high when you play with a torn ligament, because the knee is no more completely stable to support you.
Know when you should consult your doctor! Avoid further damage to your knees!!!
