A question I am asked a lot is, “I hear clicking and popping in my knee, is this something that I should be concerned about?”
The incidence of such tears is about 61 per 100,000 people each year. Yet the repair/replacement ratio is well under 10% for repair and 0.01% for replacement. Why?
It’s possible to repair a chronically unstable ankle but it is best to help people avoid ever getting to that unstable stage by making sure that simple torn ligaments are stimulated to heal properly in the first place.
