Knee Pain

The knee is not only the largest joint in the body, it is in fact two joints. The larger of the two is the joint between the thighbone and the larger of the lower leg bones. The kneecap or patella is a bone within the tendon of the quadriceps muscle. The patella forms a joint with the femur that shares the same capsule as the joint between the femur and tibia. The latter joint has two half-moon-shaped pieces of cartilage called menisci that both guide the bones as they move and take about 60 percent of the weight going through the knee. In addition, there are a large number of muscles, ligaments, and tendons acting to move or stabilize the knee. Pain may arise from all these structures either singly or in combination. Some causes of knee pain are obvious while others may require expert examination and special investigations to diagnose. Some may arise outside the knee. A well-known source of pain referred to the knee is arthritis of the hip. Below are the list of hip problem:
