Knee Treatment

  • ACL Injury
  • PCL Injury
  • Multiligament Injury
  • Knee Arthroscopy
  • Meniscal Repair
  • Lower Limb Re-Alignment
  • Patellar Dislocation

The ACL (Anterior cruciate ligament) is one of the four main ligaments in the knee that connect the upper part of the knee called “femur” to the lower part of the knee called “tibia”. This Ligament is a stretchable tissue that is responsible for providing strength to the knee while it is doing its daily work.

The ACL injury is actually an internal injury to the knee, caused by the tear of the interior knee joint tissue or ligament.

What are the causes of an ACL Injury?

The ACL is injured very easily.  The ACL injury is commonly known as the Ligament Tear and it can occur while playing sports or due to sudden fall.

The ACL injury is generally seen in the people with hyper active lifestyle like playing sports which mainly involves movement of limbs in any direction with great force, thus putting tremendous pressure on the joint ligaments.

Ligaments are strong, tough bands of tissue which attach one bone to another bone and mainly help to stabilize joints. The Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) is a ligament located within the knee. The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) connect the thighbone (femur) to shinbone (tibia). PCL injury generally causes pain, disability and knee instability more than ACL injury ,but PCL injury affects movement for several weeks or months.

Symptoms of a PCL injury

 Most people don't experience a "popping" sensation in the knee after a PCL injury and try to do their usual activities but many symptoms which can develop including:

  • Mild to Severe Swelling
  • Knee pain
  • Wobbly Sensation in the Knee
  • Trouble while Walking

Multi Ligament Knee Injury is a complex, severe and rare injury which mainly occurs due to the tear of one or more ligaments of the knee. The stability of the knee is damaged when an injury affects the combination of the four major knee ligaments including Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL), Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL), Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) and Lateral Collateral Ligament (LCL). Sports related injuries and trauma (vehicle accidents) are major causes of multi ligament knee injuries.

Symptoms of Multi Ligament Knee Injury

  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Knee Instability
  • Disruption in range of motion
  • Injury to nerves and arteries of the leg

Knee arthroscopy is a Key hole surgical method used to first find out and then operate the knee joint for the knee problems using the Arthroscope. The Arthroscope is a very small camera that is inserted into the knee joint via small cut, using which the surgeon can look at on the attached monitor and if possible, can cure the injury.

When is Knee Arthroscopy done?

The knee arthroscopy is advised when a person comes with severe pain or discomfort in the knee and when other diagnosis methods are not able to completely reveal the extent of the injury.

Using the knee arthroscopy technique, the following knee conditions could be diagnosed:

  • The ligament tears i.e. ACL injuries
  • The dislocated knee cap i.e. misaligned patella
  • Factures in the knee
  • Internal knee swelling due to various reasons

The meniscus are soft tissues cartilage placed inside the knee. It is present between the upper part of the knee called femur and the lower part of the knee called tibia. It is responsible for Load and shock handling on the knee area. It balances between the front and back of the knee thus, stabilizing it. It is also responsible for the lubrication and nutrition of the articular cartilage.

 

Every knee joint contains two menisci. The meniscus tear is one of the most common form of knee Injury.

 

What is Meniscal Repair?

 

It is an operating method to repair the torn meniscus. The torn Meniscal could be repaired by Repair or removal of the torn tissues. The removal is done only when the torn Meniscus is beyond repair.

 

Some people have deformed lower limbs that look like“Bow”. This deformity could be by birth (congenial) or acquired over time. Such deformities accelerate the rate of wear and tear tothe lower limb.

The condition can be treated by realigning the lower limb by surgery. The surgery allows the patient to maintain a more dynamicroutine.

What is the Cause Lower Limb deformity?

 There are many types of Lower Limb deformities. There could be numerous causeswhich could have caused them which may include

  • Congenital or by birth
  • Diseases like Rickets
  • A Dwarfism growth condition
  • Renal failure
  • Infections
  • Other metabolic disorders

 The Patella is commonly known as the Knee Cap. It is a triangular bone present at the top of the knee. In the Patellar Dislocation the knee cap moves out of its position in the knee. The Patella or the knee cap could be visually seen as out of place when looked at the knee.

Patellar Dislocation consists of two percent of the knee injuries and is most common in youngsters.

What is the Cause of Patellar Dislocation?

 The injury is caused after a hard hit to the knee, enough to reach to the internal part and tear the middle PCL tissue. The common reasons, not limited to, could be

  • A forceful accidental twist of the lower leg
  • Other injuries where the Patella is hit with bent leg
  • Playing active contact sports like football
  • Previous Patella dislocation injury
  • Congenital dislocation

  • ACL Injury
  • PCL Injury
  • Multiligament Injury
  • Knee Arthroscopy
  • Meniscal Repair
  • Lower Limb Re-Alignment
