Fact about the Knee

Did you know…..


The knee joint is made up of 4 bones femur, tibia, patella and fibular.


The patella's job is to extend the length of the femur to allow a long fulcrum of the femur to allow the Quadriceps muscle group to produce more force.


Knee the is one of the most overloaded joints.


The knee works with the ankle and hip. If either the ankle or the hip is not functioning correctly the knee takes the pressure and force which regularly leads to pain.

The knee joint contains and large bundle of lymph nodes and these play a key part in drainage ensuring we recover well. If these are blocked It can cause pain in the flexion of the knee.
