UNLOCKING THE DANCE OF JOINTS: EXPLORING YOUR LEG ANATOMY AND OSTEOARTHRITIS

Like the playful tune of 'Dem Bones,' let's unravel the interconnected marvels of human leg anatomy, where your hip joint swings with rhythm, your knee joint grooves with flexibility, and your ankle joint taps the beat of movement.
As we can see below, the human leg consists of several bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints that work together to provide stability, support, and movement.1

The leg is divided into two major segments: the upper leg (thigh) and the lower leg, but there is a specific connection between the hip, knee, and ankle joints: 1
The hip, knee, and ankle joints, which connect all the bones together, are classified as weight-bearing joints due to their crucial role in supporting and distributing the weight of the body during activities like standing, walking, and running.3

These joints are particularly susceptible to OA due to the constant stress and pressure they endure over time. OA is characterized by the breakdown and loss of cartilage. With age and wear and tear, the cartilage in weight-bearing joints can become damaged or deteriorate, leading to OA.4
