What Is A Knee Ligament Injury?
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is the most commonly injured knee ligament. It connects the thigh bones to the shin bone. Another common injury is the medial collateral ligament (MCL), which connects the thigh bones to the shin bone on the inside of the knee. Also similar to the ACL is the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), which connects the thigh bone to the shin bone
If you have damaged a knee ligament, you may experience severe and sudden pain. You may also hear a snap or pop during the impact causing the injury. It is likely that you won’t be able to put weight on the joint and it will swell within 24 hours.
Sporting activities are a common cause of knee ligament injuries. Many occur when the knee is twisted or is over-extended.
Physical Therapy for Knee Ligament Injury
Depending on the severity of the injury, surgery may be required. Following surgery, physical therapy plays an important part in the recovery process. For milder cases, physical therapy and rest can get you back to full mobility and range.
The goal of physical therapy is to relieve pain, rebuild strength, and increase flexibility. Physical therapy also helps to regain range of motion following a knee ligament injury.
