Knee Injury FAQ
What are the symptoms of a knee injury?
Knee injuries often result from sports accidents or athletic injuries. But sometimes, knee injuries occur without warning or a clear explanation. Symptoms of a knee injury may include:
- Joint stiffness
- Pain when standing or walking
- Pain that gets worse as the day goes on
Knee injuries often get worse over time. In some cases, your pain may also go away and then return. But for any lasting or worsening pain, you should report to your medical provider right away. The sooner you get a diagnosis for your knee injury, the better your chances for a full recovery.
What causes knee injuries?
Athletes are at an especially high risk for knee injuries. Most knee injuries occur when you change direction when playing sports like football. If you’re a dedicated athlete, intense daily exercise can put you at risk for various knee problems. But there is also a link between knee injuries and joint overuse.
Knee injuries usually affect the ligaments within the joint, including:
- The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL)
- The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)
- The medial collateral ligament (MCL)
It’s easy to strain or sprain these ligaments during your daily activities. But more severe injuries or accidents can sometimes result in a complete ligament tear. If your ligaments are torn, you may need surgery to repair them.
What treatments can help with knee injuries?
Many knee injuries require surgery. But post-surgical care is also essential for a full recovery. At The Injury Center, LLC, Dr. Wyrwas specializes in both pre-surgical and post-surgical treatments. These treatments are designed to boost your body’s healing processes and improve joint function.
