Arthritis isn’t the only problem that can afflict your knees. As we age, tears and strains become more common. Tears and strains are also common injuries on the basketball court, soccer field or track, regardless of age.
WakeMed Orthopaedic providers are experts in sports and geriatric medicine and care for hundreds of ligament strains and tears each year. For the most severe tears, our orthopaedic providers have expertise in the most advanced minimally invasive surgical techniques. So whether you’re 18 or 88 or whether your injury occurred on the soccer field or from a fall, we can fix what ails you.
It is our goal to get you back on your feet and on the carpet or the field as soon as possible.
WakeMed and the Capital Area Soccer League (CASL) are partners in providing young athletes and their families with information on nutrition and injury prevention, including proper stretching before activities. A little stretching can go a long way to preventing a tear. Learn more about protecting your knees from injury.
