The ligaments around the knee are strong, but sometimes they can be injured. They may be sprained (stretched) or sometimes ruptured (torn). The majority of ligament injuries to the knee are sprains and settle with conservative treatment, including physiotherapy, rest and occasionally a knee brace. Surgical intervention may be required if a ligament is ruptured.

What is Knee Ligament Injury?

There are four ligaments around the knee joint:

  • 1) The medial collateral ligament (MCL)

  • 2) The lateral collateral ligament (LCL)

  • 3) Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)

  • 4) Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL)

  • If you feel you may have suffered more than a minor sprain, it is important to have an examination with an experienced physiotherapist. Our physiotherapists will give you an expert opinion on 1) if a ligament has been injured, 2) whether it has been sprained or ruptured and 3) the most appropriate management of the injury.

    If significant ligament sprains and ruptures are not identified promptly and treated appropriately, the recovery time will either be significantly increased or you may never achieve a full recovery. An ACL rupture and Grade 3 MCL strain are 2 common knee ligament injuries that could stop you ever playing sport again, if they are not identified and treated.
