KNEE

Your knee is a complex joint with many components, making it vulnerable to a variety of injuries. Some of the most common knee injuries include fractures, dislocations, sprains, and ligament tears.
Many knee injuries can be successfully treated with simple measures, such as bracing and rehabilitation exercises. Other injuries may require surgery to correct.

Knee injuries often cause instability and can make normal day to day activities difficult. At Orthopedic Associates of Dutchess County we have a team of many skilled board-certified orthopedic surgeons, doctors and pain management specialists whose goal is to get you mobile again in the fastest and safest way possible. Our providers are specialty-trained to quickly diagnose your cause of pain and establish a course of treatment that meets your individual needs and goals.


When you are first injured, the RICE method -- Rest, Ice, gentle Compression and Elevation - can help speed your recovery.

Be sure to seek treatment as soon as possible, especially if you:

  • Hear a popping noise and feel your knee give out at the time of injury
  • Have severe pain
  • Cannot move the knee
  • Begin limping
  • Have swelling at the injury site
