Kneecaps - Do we need them? 

Have you ever looked at your kneecaps and wondered what its for? What is the point?


The kneecap or patella is a sesmoid bone which a very important structure to help increase the lever arms in knee movement. It is very common for people who have poor movement patterns to experience pain within the knee area.


Watch this basic example and model experiment (of course this isn't and couldn't compare to the intricate knee).
