Ligament Injury

Knee ligament injuries occur when one of the ligaments that support the knee joint is stretched or torn. The knee joint is stabilized by four main ligaments: the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), the medial collateral ligament (MCL), and the lateral collateral ligament (LCL).



  • Sudden twists or turns from direct contact or landing awkwardly from a jump.


  • Knee ligament injury include pain, swelling, difficulty walking, and a feeling of instability in the knee.
  • Diagnosis is made through a physical exam and X-ray or MRI


  • Conservative measures like rest, ice, and physical therapy.
  • Surgical options like ligament reconstruction can be suggested in worst cases

Rehabilitation and physical therapy are crucial components of the recovery process to help strengthen the knee and prevent future injury.Preventing knee ligament injuries involves engaging in regular exercise to strengthen the muscles surrounding the knee, using proper technique during physical activities, and wearing proper equipment to reduce the risk of injury.
