Injuries Can Leave You Weak in the Knees

By

Some people who face chronic problems grumble that knees are the weak link in the chain. Doctors disagree. “The knee is actually very strong,” said Dr. Ed Laskowski, co-director of the Mayo Clinic’s Sports Medicine Center. “It can handle most physical extremes. We’re all playing sports at a higher level than we used to. We’re bigger, faster and stronger. All things considered, it’s a very strong and stable joint.”
