What is it and how do we treat it?
Knees are large, complex joints that connect the femur to the tibia. Your patella and fibula are the other major bones in your knee. The knee joint moves because of tendons that connect the knee bones to your leg muscles, and ligaments stabilize the knee. Cartilage provides shock absorption between the bones, and bursae are fluid-filled sacs that allow your knee to move smoothly. When all of these bones, tendons, ligaments, and bursae are healthy, your knee moves fluidly and without pain.
