The knee is integral to staying mobile. It’s one of the most complex joints in the human body due to the overall size as well as the unique way it’s structured. For the same reasons, it’s also one of the most frequently injured joints in the body. The knee is comprised of 5 major components:
Bones – the knee is where the femur meets the tibia and patella (your kneecap.)
Articular cartilage – the ends of the bones listed above and the back of the patella are covered in articular cartilage. It helps your bones glide smoothly as your leg moves.
The Meniscus – You actually have two menisci in each knee. They’re wedge-shaped pieces of cartilage that act as shock absorbers between your femur and tibia.
Ligaments – The bones in your knee are connected by ligaments. The knee has some of the most famous ligaments – the collateral ligaments and the cruciate ligaments.
Tendons – Your muscles are connected to bone via tendons.
The knee is one of the most frequently injured joints in the body. The most common injuries include fractures, dislocations, anterior cruciate ligaments, posterior cruciate ligaments, collateral ligament injuries, and injuries to the meniscus and tendons. If you hurt your knee, it’s important that you make an appointment with an orthopedic knee doctor!
