The knee consists of three bones, i.e. femur, tibia, and patella. These bones are covered with cartilage at the ends. Cartilage is a material that acts as a cushion, allowing the bones to move easily, without experiencing any pain. It basically acts as a shock absorber between the knees, known as a meniscus. They are two semicircle discs of connective tissues. The tear in meniscus can be both minor or major. The symptoms of this condition include; pain, swelling, stiffness, and weakness in the knee.
When you take a look at the normal spine, it appears straight from behind. However, the spine affected from scoliosis will look curved like an ‘S’ or ‘C’.
