The knee is a complicated joint comprising of several parts.
The kneecap joins the upper leg bone (femur) to make the patella-femoral joint. The joint between the upper and lower leg is called the tibiofemoral joint. There are several structures within the knee that can become painful. Normally a knee condition will improve with simple management techniques and will not require surgery.
If you have experienced any trauma to your knee and continue to get pain it is important to have this looked at by your physiotherapist or GP. You can self-refer here.
