Common Knee Injuries
Your knee is comprised of several important structures, any of which are
susceptible to injury. Pain and swelling are the most common indications
of a knee injury.
The following are common knee injuries we treat at QualCare Rehabilitation:
- Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Injuries
- Collateral Ligament Injuries
- Posterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries
- Meniscal Tears
- Tendon Tears
Many of knee injuries can be treated with simple measures, such as immobilization,
physical therapy, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines. On other
occasions, fractures and ACL injuries require surgery. If you hear a popping
sound and feel your knee give out, suffer severe pain, cannot move your
knee, or begin limping, you must seek treatment right away.
