Knee is a powerful joint that allows the lower body to move freely while supporting the weight of the body. The movements at the knee are critical for daily and athletic activities. The knee is connected to the hip by the femur and to the lower leg by the tibia. Patellae (knee cap) a free bone, is anchored to the front of the knee by the muscles in the area. Knee joint gets its stability from well known ligaments like the ACL, PCL, MCL, LCL and the meniscus. The knee is susceptible to injuries from abnormal muscle forces, repeated stresses, acute injuries, or imbalance stemming at the hip and ankle joints.
