Everything we do with our legs needs our knees. Their movement allows the leg to turn, twist and set straight which we generally require for standing, walking, jumping and turning. We all know how important part the knees are. But we might miss out on some crucial part and its role in our whole body. Some fact that will make you think are:

Babies are born with no kneecaps: When the babies are born, there is no kneecap. However, they have the shield of soft cartilage that is yet not transformed into hard strong bones.

The knee connects two bones. Tendons connect the knee bones to the leg muscles that are helpful in moving the knee joint. Ligaments join the knee bones and provide flexibility to the knee. The joint permits the leg to do activities like kicking, jumping, running and hopping. The best surgeons specializing in Orthopaedic joint reconstruction, use minimally invasive approach and provide efficient and quality care with least possible pain and faster recovery time.

Knees require resistance training: Resistance training through a full and correct range of motion is essential to maintain healthy knees. Weight-bearing exercises can help promoting joint steadiness and add more strength to it.

Wrong sized shoes can be disastrous: One of the major cause of knee pain stems from wrong sized shoes or footwear. Wearing wrong shoes cause unnecessary stress on ligament, cartilage and knee cap resulting in early erosion of knee bones.

Knees call for support from hip and inner thigh muscles. If the muscles in this particular region are weak, the pressure of walking falls directly on the knees, causing you extreme pain in the knee. So, it is better to follow a workout routine that makes the hip adductor muscles stronger.

Squats are good for Knees: Your knees thank you when you bend forward in a sit on your heels or squat position. But stretching them beyond 90 degrees could be disastrous. Do not stretch it too far else your knees can hurt. It is very essential to know the right way to do the squats; else it might turn out to be worse.

Joint reconstruction surgery involves elimination of the injured portion of the joint and replacing it with an artificial joint. In current scenario, joint prostheses are designed to fit and function just like your natural joint. Patient will finally be able to live without the knee joint pain.

The most complicated and biggest joint in human body: There are two joints, tibiofemoral joint and patellofemoral joint that take the heavy lift, carrying most of the weight and enabling the knee to bend and move. The knee obtains the strength and firmness from four bones - namely tibia (shin bone), patella (kneecap), femur (thigh bone) and fibula. On top of those, there are ligaments that fasten the bones together - ligaments act like flexible bands. There are 5 chief ligaments that keep the knee securely in place and allow it to move around appropriately.

Joint Stiffness due to ligament pull: Some people experience increasing rigidity after surgery. Usually patients get relief with mild exercise. Pain may prevent the patient from doing physiotherapy workout. Knee stiffness may be treated by the management of the joint under anaesthetic, followed by intensive physiotherapy.
