The joint where thighbone meets the large bone of the lower leg. The knee moves like a hinge, but it can also rotate and move a little from side to side. The knee is more likely to be damaged than most other joints because it is subject to tremendous forces during vigorous activity.
The patella (kneecap) is a small, flat, triangular bone in front of the joint. It is not directly connected with any other bone. Muscle attachments hold it in place.
The femur (thighbone) and the tibia (large bone of the lower leg) are connected in three ways. These ways are (1) by ligaments (strong, cordlike tissues); (2) by muscles; and (3) by a synovial capsule. The synovial capsule surrounds the joint.
The knee ligaments are the strongest connections between the femur and the tibia. Ligaments keep the bones from moving out of position. The synovial capsule secretes a liquid called synovial fluid, which resembles raw egg white. The synovial fluid nourishes the joint surfaces and reduces friction between them. If the synovial capsule is injured, it may produce too much fluid. This extra fluid is sometimes called “water on the knee” or “cyst on the knee”.
Joints are often sprained or dislocated. A sprain occurs when ligaments around a joint are torn or badly stretched. Serious sprains are painful, and if neglected may result in instability of the joint. Dislocated joints should be treated as soon as possible by a doctor. Inflammation of the joints may result from infections or from such disorders as arthritis.
