Knee ACL Ligament

I think now there's a strive to return to sports, soccer, whatever it may be. Sometimes, you know, you're going to get back with your running group or your cycling group or whatever it is. And I think the automatic as to want to go back to what we were before, let's say before the pandemic, if we'd been less active during that time. And so the knees are often a joint that takes a lot of the brunt of activity. Sometimes they're often the victim, even if there's problems up or down the chain. And so it's easy to get overuse injuries or knee pain, or sort of ligament injuries can even happen in the knee if you jumped back to activity too quickly.
