Description
 
The knee is the largest joint in the body supporting nearly the entire body weight and is highly vulnerable to both acute injury and degenerative diseases. It is a hinge joint formed at the point where the femur and tibia meet which is held together and protected by the following major components:
  • Patella (kneecap) which protects the front of the knee
  • Cartilage (cushioning) at the end of the femur and tibia
  • Menisci - lateral and medial - pads of cartilage which act as shock absorbers
  • Ligaments - ACL, PCL, MCL, LCL - which connect the femur to the tibia to stabilize and control alignment

And, the most common injuries and ailments are:
  • Ligament damage and tears especially ACL and MCL - often through trauma
  • Meniscal Tears - cartilage can no longer disperse weight and reduce friction
  • Patella Tendinitis - overuse injury (Jumper's knee)
  • Bursitis - inflamation of Bursae (synovial fluid sacks which help the joint glide)
  • Osteoarthritis - the most common type of degenerative disease affecting the knee
