Patella, more commonly known as the kneecap. It’s a small bone that’s triangular in shape. It’s located at the front of your knee. The bone is lined with a thick layer of cartilage that takes the brunt of the force your knee endures every day.
Meniscus, the fluid-filled discs that serve as shock absorbers. The meniscus prevents your bones from rubbing together. It contains nerves that help you maintain stability and balance. It also distributes the proper amount of weight between your tibia or shin bone and your femur or thigh bone. On each leg, you have one meniscus on the outer side of the knee and another on the inside.
Articular cartilage. This is a layer of cartilage that also acts as a cushion between your femur and tibia. It’s also on the backside of your patella.
Ligaments that keep your knees from moving too much in either direction. These rope-like tissues hold the bones together and keep you stable. These fibrous tissues also hold your knee together, but instead of holding the bones together, they connect your muscles to your bones. The biggest tendon, the patella tendon connects your kneecap to your thigh and quadriceps.
The joint capsule, a small bag surrounding your knee joint that’s filled with synovial fluid. This is where the lubrication comes from to keep your knees nourished.
About 14 bursa sacs surround each knee. Each is filled with fluid to reduce friction and prevent swelling and inflammation.
When you hurt your knee, the pain originates behind your knee, where you can experience back or posterior knee pain. Other injuries include accidental fractures, inner knee pain, overuse strains, and incorrect movement sprains. In all these injuries, your discomfort stems from one of the joint structures above.
