The knee’s movements are provided mainly by the quadriceps at the front of the thigh (knee extensors) and the hamstrings and calf complex behind (knee flexors). The knees also have soft cartilage pads (the menisci) shaped like moon crescents on the medial and lateral aspect. These act as shock absorbs and give knees greater stability.
