The knee is the largest joint in the body and is very vulnerable to injury. The joint consists of the lower end of the thigh bone (femur), the upper end of the shinbone (tibia), and the kneecap (patella) held together by large ligaments. A meniscus (cartilage pad) provides cushioning between the bones and absorbs shock during motion. Injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament, the medial collateral ligament and the meniscus are common in athletes. Learn More.
