This video demonstrates a basic approach to examining the knee joint, please note the handling control and use of the operators body contact and movement which helps to facilitate the examination routine. Also worthy of mentioning is the care and control of the Hip joint, which is kept as static as possible as the two joints share a similar nerve supply and often pain can be referred from the hip to the knee, so the hip is controlled to avoid this!
