Knee Pain Physical Therapy

Knee Pain

The knee is considered to be a complex joint that is formed by the articulation between the femur and tibia. It has a knee cap or the patella that enables the quadriceps to function more efficiently. The joint consists of bones, ligaments, tendons and cartilage that can be subject to injury or wear and tear. The joint is also capable of influencing the hip and the foot and ankle joints.
