Lower limb pain

March, 2020 Lower limb pain (thigh, knee, foot)

The lower limb starts from the hip joint and extends to the toes. The hip joint attaches the pelvic bone to the femur (thigh). The ligaments support the femoral head and prevent dislocating.

Unlike the knee joint, the hip joint moves in different directions and allows the legs to perform complex movements. The knee is the largest joint in the body, and it has both hinged and bending movements and can partially rotate around the long axis. The knee joint is more susceptible to injury than any other joint in the body, and this is due to the many forces that the joint has to endure.

Foot: The ankle is a complex network of bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles. Although strong enough to withstand body weight, it can be prone to injury and pain. The lower limb is responsible for direct walking, which can lead to discomfort and loss of function.
