Anatomy of Your Knee

Your knee is where your tibia and femur, two long bones in your leg, come together. There’s a lot going on at this joint: muscle, ligaments, tendons and cartilage all work together to keep you moving and keep your body protected.

The muscles of the knee include the quadriceps (the fronts of your thighs) and your hamstrings (on the backs of your thighs). You use your quadriceps every time you straighten your legs and your hamstrings every time you bend your leg at the knee.

Your tendons, meanwhile, connect those muscles to your bones. Ligaments connect bones with other bones and provide stability, protect joints and safely limit your movement.
