Knees are one of the most easily injured parts of the body. In fact, your
tendons, ligaments, the articular cartilage, and the menisci are the most
easily injury components of the knee. In most knee injuries, one or more
of these aforementioned parts are being damaged. In the end, the pain,
swelling, and stiffness from such knee injury can be debilitating.
The knee is not only the largest, but many times is described as one of
the most complicated part of the body, as it is used for comprehensive
body movement, including walking, standing, and running. From a medical
standpoint, it has been described, it is a “weight-bearing joint
that bends, straightens, rotates and twists.” All this motion increases
your risk of acute knee injuries. And any such increased likelihood of
injury also increases the likelihood such knee or leg injuries will occur
on the job.
Ironically, because of its susceptibility to injury, if a work-place knee
injury occurs, frequently employers will deny such claim was job related,
instead concluding such injury was the result of the employee engaging
in outside sports or other strenuous activities wholly unrelated to their
job. Knee injuries, many times are the result of stepping incorrectly,
falling on the job or twisting the knee. Job that include stopping and
twisting or turning, as well as jobs that include lifting, the risk of
incurring an acute knee injury. More times than not, employers do not
provide their workers sufficient protection for their legs, specifically
their knees, or will demand that their workers undertake tasks beyond
what they are capable of doing. Receiving the right care and the proper
compensation and accommodations on the job as the result of a workplace
accident or injury is often hard to do, but is vital to helping you recover
