Sprained Ligaments

Sprained Ligaments

The knee joint is supported by four major ligaments, which are crucial for providing stability and strength to the joint. Ligaments are elastic bands of connective tissue that link bones together. In the case of the knee, these ligaments play a pivotal role in connecting the femur (thighbone) to the tibia (shin bone). The four primary ligaments in the knee are:

  1. Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL): Located in the center of the knee, the ACL prevents the tibia from sliding too far forward and helps stabilize rotational movements.
  2. Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL): Situated next to the ACL, the PCL prevents the tibia from moving too far backward and works in conjunction with the ACL to maintain stability.
  3. Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL): Positioned on the inner side of the knee, the MCL provides stability and prevents the knee from buckling inward.
  4. Lateral Collateral Ligament (LCL): Found on the outer side of the knee, the LCL helps prevent the knee from buckling outward, contributing to overall stability.

These ligaments collectively contribute to the intricate balance and functionality of the knee joint. Injuries to these ligaments, such as sprains or tears, can result in instability, pain, and limitations in joint movement. Proper diagnosis and management are crucial in addressing ligament injuries and restoring optimal function to the knee.
