Steve’s Bad Knee. We seem to be having a lot to do with knees at the moment and as we have more and more clients that like to run and knee injuries seem to be a problem, we thought you may want to hear Steve’s story.
The knee is one of the most often injured joints in the human body. Being the biggest joint, it is composed of the femur that rotates on the upper end of the tibia, and the kneecap patella, which slides in a groove on the end of the femur.
The knee also contains large ligaments, which in turn help control physical activity by connecting bones and by holding the joint against abnormal types of motion. Another important formation is the meniscus, is a block of soft cartilage between the femur and tibia that serves to cushion the knee and helps it soak up shock during activity.
