Knees Are Knot Knots
By: havilah123

Our knees may look like just a jumble of bones and meat fromt he outside, but we must always bear in mind they are very intricately involved, detailed and enormously important machines. If we start treating our knees more like we treat our iPads, we might have a much longer and happier relationship with them.

    We must be more careful with our knee joints. 

    Consider the care you take with your computers/phones/etc. These machines all have very delicate inner-workings that must be cared for, maintained and preserved in order to ensure they continue working properly for as long as possible. Our knees deserve the same (if not more) attention and care.

    The knee joint is a detailed, constanting moving swing joint with a huge responsibility - keeping us standing and walking. As far as I'm concerned, this is more important than the thing that plays movies for me while I'm on an airplane. 

    Start looking at your knee with the same respect and care you give your computer and you'll be glad you did. Remember: just because you didn't pay for it, doesn't mean it's not worth a million bucks!

    Well said. The knee is made up of a lot of moving parts:

    - Thigh bone (femur)
    - Shin bone (tibia)
    - Knee cap (patella)
    - Cartilage
    - Tendons (3 of them)
    - IT band
    - Ligaments

    The knee is probably one of the weakest joints in the body, and yet it carries more strain than any of the other joints. It's the one that takes the most pounding as we go about our day, so it's the one we need to care for the most.

    Take care of your knees, and they'll stay in good working condition for years to come.
