longest and strongest bone of the body
a deformity in which the tibia is bent or twisted laterally.
the hip joint is deepened by the?
sudden involuntary painful contraction of muscles of the lower limb. Caused by muscle fatigue, overexertion, dehydration, and depletion or imbalance of salts and minerals.
a deformity in which the tibia is bent medially

ligament that prevents hyperextension of the knee
a condition of limping caused by ischemia of the muscles in the lower limbs and its seen occlusive peripheral arterial diseases particularly in the popliteal arteries and veins
characterized by ischemic necrosis of the muscles in the anterior compartment of the leg. Occurs due to the compression of arteries by swollen muscles following excessive exertion.
