Knee Injuries

The knee is a complex joint with many ligaments and cartilages , making it vulnerable for a variety of injuries. Most common knee injuries include knee joint sprains, ligament tears, fractures, and dislocations.

Most of the knee injuries can be treated with simple measures, such as bracing and exercises. Other injuries which are severe may require surgical intervention.


Most common knee injuries include:

  • ACL(Anterior Cruciate Ligament) injury - This is most common type of knee injury .It is a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) — one of four ligaments that support the knee. An ACL injury is particularly common in people who are active in sports and play basketball, soccer or other sports that require sudden knee movements.
  • Fractures/Dislocations - The bones of the knee tibia , fibula and including the kneecap (patella), can be dislocated / fractured during falls or accidents.
  • Mensical Tears - The meniscus is the tough cartilage that acts as a shock absorber of the knee . It can be torn if you twist your knee suddenly while weight bearing.
  • Knee bursitis - Knee bursae, the small sacs of fluid that cushion tendons and ligaments of knee joint may get inflamed or get injured.
  • Patellar tendinitis - Tendinitis causes inflammation of one or more tendons — that attach muscles to bones and usually runners, cyclists, and those playing in jumping sports may develop patellar tendinitis.

Diagnosis of knee injury (ACL)

The orthopedist conducts a thorough diagnosis that includes a physical examination which assesses the tenderness, swelling, and inflammation in the affected knee and the orthopedician may also suggest passive movement tests to check the severity of the ligaments or joint injury. There are a few diagnostic tests an orthopedist would recommend to suggest the best-suited treatment to repair it. Some of the diagnostic tests are-

  • X-Rays- for bone injuries
  • MRI- for torn ligaments and tissues
  • Some knee joint movement tests – To know the intensity of pain , restricted mobility and deciding clinically on whether bones , ligaments or meniscus is injured.

Treatment of Knee Injuries

When you are injured, the RICE protocol can help speed your recovery:

  • Rest- Avoid putting weight on the painful knee.
  • Ice - cold packs for 20 minutes at a times repeated several times a day.
  • Compression - Wrap the injured area in a soft bandage
  • Elevation - To reduce swelling, elevate the injured limb by keeping support higher than your heart while resting.
Nonsurgical Treatment

Non surgical methods include:

  • Immobilization - Your orthopedician may recommend a brace/cast to prevent your knee from moving.
  • Physiotherapy - Exercises will strengthen the muscles supporting the knee and may restore function .
  • Anti- inflammatory drugs help in reducing pain and swelling.
Surgical Treatment

Some injuries around the knee require surgery either open or minimally invasive to restore knee function-

In some cases — such as for many ACL tears or meniscal injuries — surgery can be done Arthroscopically removing the torn /damaged ligaments or meniscus and repairing them using miniature instruments and small incisions.

Surgery is followed by physiotherapy to reduce the chances of re-injury. Surgeon evaluates the joint’s strength, stability, and movement before allowing the patients to return to their sports activities .


Benefits of arthroscopic ACL reconstruction surgery

  • Smaller incisions
  • Less harm to the surrounding tissues
  • Faster post operative recovery
  • Day care surgery
  • Less hospital stay duration

Knee Injuries

Your knees are made up of bones, ligaments, tendons and cartilage. The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), which is located in the front center of your knee, connects the thigh bone (femur) to the shin bone (tibia). It is one of four primary ligaments located in your knee:

  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).
  • Medial collateral ligament (MCL).
  • Lateral collateral ligament (LCL).
  • Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL).

The main function of the ACL is to stop forward movement and rotation of the shin bone on the thigh bone.

Some people feel stable enough to walk, as long as they do it slowly and carefully. Others choose to use crutches in case their knee “gives out” (collapses or buckles).

Yes. You will feel pain and may hear or feel a pop when the injury happens.

Six to nine months is typically how long it takes to recover from ACL surgery.

With time, surgery and physical therapy, you should regain full use of your knee within six to nine months.

You can re-tear your ACL, yes. The risk or re-tear is generally considered to be five to seven percent.

Yes, but it may take some time before you’re completely back to how you were before the injury. Whether you choose to have surgery or not, with physical therapy you will eventually be back to normal and able to live your life.
