The knee is the largest joint in the body and the most commonly used. It provides stability and flexibility for your body, and allows your legs to bend and straighten. The components of the knee – cartilage, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bones – work together to protect the joint during everyday activities such as walking and running.
