The knee is the most complex and yet important joint that connects the two largest bones in a human body (Femur and Tibia) and a small bone (Patella or knee cap). These help enhance our lower limb movements and enables us to stand, walk, run, jump, bend, twist, turn, and most of all, it is a pillar in holding our body weight upright against gravity. Knee pain problems are relatively very common and can occur in anyone of all ages that interfere with many things and can have a big impact in our life.
