Welcome to Orthopaedic Surgery india
Knee injury is one of the most common types of sports injury. An injury occurs due to a sudden blow or twist in an area which leads to fractures and tears. Knee injury is associated with tear and breakage of the ligaments, tendons, nerves and cartilages and in the worst case bone fracture.
The very question arises what will you do as a first step to treat an injured knee at home? If there is a sprain in the knee, the first thing you should do is apply ice compression in the affected area for about 20 to 25 minutes. This stops further swelling and reduces the intense pain to a great extent. Also holding the knee in an elevated position can stop further swelling. Now before moving towards hospital treatment options let’s see what are the various types of knee injuries.
Common knee injuries associated with sports may include:
How are various kinds of knee injuries treated in hospitals?
At the very first go medicines are prescribed to reduce swelling and pain. Depending on the intensity of the injury treatments are conducted. For most of the soft tissue injuries, ice compression is used along with some medications. There are various kinds of splints used to provide support to that area. Apart from that Physical therapy is recommended to regain strength and mobility.
But if the knee bone breaks or decays completely, joint replacement surgery is the only option left. Depending on the condition, the doctor decides whether to go for partial knee replacement or total knee replacement.
