What is Inside Knee Joint?

The knee joint is a complex joint that consists of several structures, including bones, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and synovial fluid. The primary bones that make up the knee joint are the femur (thighbone), the tibia (shinbone), and the patella (kneecap).

The ends of these bones are covered with a smooth layer of cartilage, which helps to cushion the joint and allow for smooth movement. The knee joint also contains several ligaments, which are strong bands of tissue that help to connect the bones and provide stability to the joint. The four main ligaments of the knee joint are the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), medial collateral ligament (MCL), and lateral collateral ligament (LCL).

In addition to ligaments, the knee joint also contains tendons, which are tough bands of tissue that connect muscles to bones. The primary tendons of the knee joint are the quadriceps tendon, which connects the quadriceps muscle to the patella, and the patellar tendon, which connects the patella to the tibia.

The knee joint is also surrounded by a membrane called the synovial membrane, which produces a fluid called synovial fluid. This fluid helps to lubricate the joint and reduce friction during movement.

Overall, the complex structure of the knee joint allows for a wide range of motion and stability, but it also makes it susceptible to injury and conditions such as osteoarthritis.
