The Function of Knee

Our knee is a hinge joint that handles weight-bearing and movement. The various crucial functions of the knee include:

  • supporting our body in an upright position
  • assist in lowering and raising our body
  • provides stability
  • shock absorber
  • enables twisting of our leg
  • allows walking to be more efficient
  • helps propel the body forward

Knee Specialist – What is it? 

A knee specialist in Singapore is also known as orthopaedics. These medical specialists focus on injuries and diseases of your body’s musculoskeletal system. The musculoskeletal system includes:

  • joints
  • ligaments
  • tendons
  • muscles
  • nerves

These are the crucial body parts needed to help you move, work and do all the essential things in life. Some orthopaedics only specialise in just one or two parts of the musculoskeletal system, so you must verify with them if they specialise in knees.

Is My Knee Pain Serious Enough for a Visit to a Specialist Orthopaedic Surgeon?

Can I Continue my Sporting Activities if I am Experiencing Knee Pain?
It is generally not recommended to continue with sports activities that led to the injury until the injury has been properly diagnosed and treated. Let pain be a guide for you. Your doctor will guide you to return to your sports. He might recommend alternative sports for you when you are still recovering from a specific sporting injury.
