Knee Injuries

Injuries can occur from a sudden traumatic event (i.e. torn ligaments, torn cartilage or fracture) or may happen as a result of repetitive overload or over use (i.e. patellar pain syndrome, jumper’s knee, and tendinitis). Injury patterns about the knee will also vary with different sports or activities.

Some of the more common knee injuries or ailments include the following:

  • Knee arthritis
  • Torn ligaments especially torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL tear)
  • Other torn ligaments i.e. MCL, LCL, PCL – or combinations
  • Patellar Pain Syndrome (i.e. chondromalacia patella) – kneecap pain
  • Torn Meniscus (i.e. torn cartilage)
  • Patellar (kneecap) subluxation and/or dislocation
  • Infrapatellar tendinitis – also called “jumper’s knee”
  • ITB friction syndrome (Iliotibial friction syndrome)
  • OCD (osteochondritis dissicans)
  • Chondral Defects (joint surface damage)
