What are Knee Ligament Injuries?

With the knee being the body’s largest joint, it’s no wonder that over 5.5 million people per year have medical visits due to knee problems. Ligament injuries are common in adults and older adolescents. The stability of the knee is dependent on the muscles which act as active restraints and ligaments which act as passive restraints. Ligaments are strong cords of tissue that connect bone to bone across joints. Ligament injuries are graded by severity:

  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is the most commonly injured knee ligament. It connects the thigh bone to the shin bone.
  • Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) also links the thigh bone to the shin bone in the knee. (It’s rarely injured except in car accidents).
  • Lateral collateral ligament (LCL) connects the thigh bone to the fibula, the smaller bone of the lower leg on the outer side of the knee.


Common Knee Ligament Injury Symptoms

Below is a short list of symptoms that patients experience when they are diagnosed with knee ligament injuries:

  • Sudden and severe wave of pain
  • Inability to put weight on the joint without pain
  • A feeling of looseness in the joint
  • Swelling within the first 24 hours after the injury
  • A loud pop or snap during the injury


About Our Knee Ligament Injury Solutions

A mild to moderate knee ligament injury may heal on its own, in time. To speed the healing, you can:

  • Practice stretching and strengthening exercises if your doctor recommends them. Never stretch so much that it hurts. Ask your doctor to recommend a physical therapist for guidance.
  • Wear a knee brace to stabilize the knee and protect it from further injury.

When a cruciate ligament (ACL or PCL) is completely torn or stretched beyond its limits, the only option is reconstructive knee surgery. In this procedure, a surgeon will take tendons from other parts of your leg to replace the torn ligament.
