Take a Knee Give a Knee show

Oct 11, 2017

Every weekend, football teams across our great country struggle with the decision to take a knee, and Health Matters can help. Orthopedic surgeons have been making this same decision for years. We present our salute to knee replacement surgery, including information on fall prevention, children and slides, physical activity, and fun facts about knee replacement.

Tip: Most knee replacements are done for osteoarthritis, due to long term where on the knee, and not due to trauma.
