Everyone who enjoys activity, from the weekend warrior to the professional athlete, counts on his or her knee joints to tolerate a terrific pounding. In 2006, approximately 12 million visits were made to physicians' offices due to knee problems.¹ And, with the arthritic population growing, the need is bound to become greater.
