Anatomy of My Knee

When thinking about the knee, envision it as a complex structure composed of crucial elements: the thigh bone (femur), the shin bone (tibia), the fibula, and a network of ligaments. Much like a hinge, these components work together to allow for bending and straightening movements, much like the motion of a door hinge. Additionally, surrounding muscles and tendons function as a powerhouse, supporting various movements such as walking, running, and squatting, akin to the intricate mechanics of a pulley system. This understanding of the knee’s structure highlights its intricate mechanics and the interplay between various elements in supporting its functionality and movement.

“I recently had an evaluation with Dr Tyler Kinch due to some ongoing knee issues. He was able to point out some areas that were weak and he recommended some exercises to strengthen them. This is the best that my knee has felt in over 6 months. He was very friendly and very knowledgeable. I recommend that you contact him if you have any ongoing pains!”
