About Knee Pain
The knee joint is a hinge between the femur and the tibia that allows movement forwards and backwards with some limited rotation possible.
The knee is the largest joint in the human body and can be fairly easily injured.
The knee is a weight-bearing joint and is supported by ligaments on each side which cross over the knee cap.
Its hinged design is less stable than a ball-and-socket joint and more prone to injury. Luckily, because the knee is comparatively accessible, treatment may be more easily administered compared to other joints like the shoulder and hip joints.
