The knee is one of the largest and most complex joints in the body. The knee joins the thigh bone (femur) to the shin bone (tibia). The smaller bone that runs alongside the tibia (fibula) and the kneecap (patella) are the other bones that make the knee joint.
A joint or articulation (or articular surface) is the connection made between bones in the body. They are constructed to allow for different degrees and types of movement. Sutures between the bones of the skull permit very little movement.
From our head to our toes, bones provide support for our bodies and help form our shape. The skull protects the brain and forms the shape of our face. The spinal cord, a pathway for messages between the brain and the body, is protected by the backbone, or spinal column.

Most people experience knee pain at some point in their lives. Sports, exercise and other activities can cause muscle strains, tendinitis, and more serious injuries to ligaments and cartilage. For some, knee pain can be so severe that it limits daily activities. Knee swelling is sometimes referred to as “water on the knee.” The medical term for this condition is knee effusion. Water on the knee can result from an injury, chronic overuse, or disease.
The knee joint’s main function is to bend and straighten for moving the body. The knee is more than just a simple hinge.
