Common knee injuries include:
- Fractures
- Dislocations
- Ligament tears
- Meniscal tears
- Tendon tears

A healthy heart = a happy YOU!

For World Heart Day, we’ve composed a list of heart-healthy foods you can’t beat:
- Feast on oatmeal with flaxseed and berries such as blueberries, strawberries, cranberries, or raspberries for breakfast
- A spinach salad with broccoli or carrots and hummus dip makes a great lunch
- Grab a snack of almonds, walnuts, or Brazil nuts
- High omega-3 fish or tofu lighten up any supper, as does veggie chili with dark beans, fresh tomatoes, and red peppers
- Fruit up your dessert with cantaloupe, oranges, and papaya
