Knee Pain 4 .jpg




Ligament tears in knee hurt a lot and may limit what you want to do daily. Ligaments are tough band of tissues that connect the bones in your knee joints. There are four ligaments in the knee that are prone to injury:

  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is the most commonly injured knee ligament. It connects the thigh bone to the shin bone.

  • Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) also links the thigh bone to the shin bone in the knee

  • Lateral Collateral Ligament (LCL) and Medial Collateral LIgament (MCL) connect the thigh bone to the shin bone on the inside of the knee.

All these ligaments play roles in providing strength and stability to the knee joint, keeping the bones in alignment as muscles move the joints.


When trauma happens, ligaments might be injured known as sprain. Signs and symptoms of a knee ligament sprain include:

  • Pain

  • Swelling

  • Loss of knee range of motion (ROM)

  • Decreased strength of the muscles surrounding your knee
