As the largest joint in the body, the knee is essential for competing in almost every sport, but it is also the most common site for injury in young athletes. Overall, knee injuries make up about 55% of all sports injuries.

An injury to the knee can cause an athlete to experience pain in many areas of the knee joint. The knee is formed by the convergence of three bones: the femur (upper leg bone), the tibia (lower leg bone) and the patella (kneecap). Two cartilage discs called menisci allow the bones to glide smoothly against each other, absorb shock and act as a cushion between the femur and the tibia. Fluid-filled sacs called bursa surround the outside of the knee. The knee joint is stabilized by muscles, tendons and four critical ligaments: the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), the medial collateral ligament (MCL), and the lateral collateral ligament (LCL).
