Knee Pain

Home > Know your Pain > Knee Pain

Pain in the knee can turn into a major block in your life and prevent you from moving ahead and doing what you love. Knee pain has the tendency to even disrupt your entire life if not treated.

Composition of the Knee Joint?

The reason the knee is called complex is that it comprises of cartilage, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels and three bones namely the fibula and tibia (lower leg), and the femur (thigh). It has two separate joints and relies on 12 muscles at least to perform its function. Its tendons make the knee joint move while the ligaments provide stability, the two C-shaped pieces of cartilage act as shock absorbers and numerous bursae, or fluid-filled sacs, help the knee to move smoothly.

‘All knees are different. They may be as unique as fingerprints’

The knee is one of the largest, complex and most important joints in the body that carries our entire body weight. Its functioning can be compared to that of a hinge where our lower leg moves relative to the thigh providing us with movements like walking, running, sitting, climbing and standing, that keeps us going.
