Knee Injuries

Call OrthoTexas Today To Start Your Recovery

As any athlete knows, knee injuries are particularly complex and can severely limit your activity. Tears to the ligaments of the knee, including the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) are among the most well-known sports injuries, but non-athletes can suffer these injuries as well. These conditions used to have much more serious long-term implications, but modern treatment options have made it possible for athletes to return to their pre-injury form. When you visit OrthoTexas, our doctors will make sure that the functionality of the knee is restored through the use of the most advanced treatment options.

Soft Tissue Knee Injuries

Although injuries to the bones of the knee, including the kneecap, do affect many athletes and non-athletes alike, it is injuries to the soft tissue of the knee that can be particularly debilitating. Injuries to the aforementioned ACL are the most notorious, but the lateral collateral ligament (LCL), medial collateral ligament (MCL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), and meniscus are also relatively common. Proper treatment of these injuries typically involves surgery, as well as, a thorough rehabilitation program to help strengthen the surgically-repaired ligament.
