About your knee

In order for your knee to flex freely, articular cartilage must protect where hard surfaces come into contact. Healthy cartilage allows bones to glide over each other with very little friction.

This durable tissue covers the bone ends, providing a smooth, impact-resistant covering during activities such as walking, kneeling, running and jumping.
