Knee Sprain Causes and Treatment in Dallas, Fort Worth

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.
