In What Way Is the Knee Joint Poorly Protected?

Answer

The knee is the most vulnerable joint in the body. It is also the largest. The knee is a joint at the end of a long bone with no other structure around it. For example, the hip joints have the pelvic bone close enough to help shield them. The knee must also carry all the weight of the body. The knees have to absorb the shock of walking and running. Lastly, the knee is not a ball joint so it does not turn in many different directions like the hip joint. The easiest way to injure your knee is by twisting it.
