Basketball players- and other athletes who have a constant need to jump─ will more or less put their legs to constant work and pressure. Aside from a torn meniscus, an athlete who constantly uses his or her legs is exposed to the possibility of ankle sprains and overuse injuries.
Of course, athletes aren’t the only ones exposed to injuries. 1/3 of all doctor’s visits for muscle and bone pain involve the knee, with conditions varying from bone chips to osteoarthritis. Anyone can become a victim of knee injury.
