Knee and ankle injuries are not just limited to sports and athletes. They occur very frequently in the workplace. You could just be walking and with one awkward step or fall, boom, you have a knee or ankle injury.
These injuries can turn out to be very serious as there are many ligaments and tendons and even potential for cartilage tears or they could be fairly mild, like a sprain or strains. Nonetheless, all of these injuries should receive proper medical treatment as they can worsen as time passes and have the potential to keep you out of work for extended periods of time.
