The knee is one of the largest and most complex joints in the body. The knee connects the upper leg bone (femur) to the lower leg bone (tibia). Cartilage covers the ends of both leg bones and the underside of the knee cap (patella), which also makes up the joint along with the smaller bone that runs alongside the tibia, called the fibula.
The knee also contains large ligaments and tendons which help control the motion of the joint. This joint is more likely to be injured than any other joint in the body one of the reasons being the structures of the knee support nearly the entire weight of the body. These stresses make the knee vulnerable to injury and osteoarthritis.
