The anatomy

The anatomy

The knee is a hinge joint, composed of the femur (the thighbone) with its condyles and the tibia (the shinbone) with the tibia plateau; fixed in the tendon of the quadriceps muscle and ending in the the patellar tendon is the knee cap or patella. The smaller bone of the lower leg, the fibula, is really not part of the knee joint. It does have a small joint that connects it to the side of the tibia, but his joint normally moves very little. Cruciate and collateral legaments stabilize the knee joint while the hamstring and quadriceps muscles move it.
