Leg Injuries

Leg and Knee Injuries

The knee is the largest joint in the body and is often the site of injury and pain. There are four bones that come together at the knee, however only the femur (thigh bone) and the tibia (shin bone) form the joint itself.

There are two major muscle groups that support and allow movement of the knee joint. The quadriceps muscles on the front of the thigh extend the knee and the hamstring muscles on the back of the thigh flex the knee when they contract.
