Knee Sprain Injury
A sprain in the knee joint is an injury to one of the ligaments in the knee.
Causes of Knee Sprain Injury:
Knee Sprains are most commonly diagnosed in athletes. Knee Sprains occur when the ligaments (which are made up of fibrous bands) move beyond their normal range of motion, and as a result the ligament stretches or tears. When a person stretches or tears a ligament in the knee it is classified as follows:
- Grade I- Mild sprain. It is a stretched ligament that causes pain and swelling
- Grade II- Moderate sprain. Partially torn ligament and it is more disabling
- Grade III- Severe sprain. Complete rupture of the ligament and it needs surgical intervention
Knee Sprain Symptoms:
- Mild to Severe knee pain that worsens with movement
- Knee Swelling
- Difficulty walking
- Knee Sprains are knee injuries most commonly seen in athletes
Knee Strain Injury
A strain in the knee is a type of knee injury that effects the muscle or tendon around the knee joint.
Causes of Knee Strain Injuries:
Knee Strains are most commonly diagnosed when there is prolonged overuse of the muscle or tendon. Knee Strains can also occur if there is a severe blow to the knee. Strains are classified according to their severity.
- Mild strain. Slightly pulled muscle. No tearing or loss of strength.
- Moderate strain. Tearing of fibers in muscle. Tendon strength diminished.
- Severe strain. Rupture of muscle/ tendon from the bone attachment. Severe strains require surgical repair.
Knee Strain Symptoms:
- Mild-Severe knee pain when moving or stretching the knee
