How to Treat Knee Pain & Injury

Subject to a wide variety of injuries – traumatic and inflammatory disorders, the knee is the largest joint in our bodies. The most common injuries to both adults and children are ligament strains and tears, including the patellar ligament as well as the supporting ligaments around the joint.
Meniscus injuries are also a common cause of knee pain. Meniscal damage can be caused by either trauma or gradual degeneration. In fact, one sixth of all knee surgeries are from meniscal damage. Tears are the most common form of meniscal injuries, and have trouble healing because less than 25% of the menisci receive a direct blood supply. Another interesting fact is that the medial meniscus firmly adheres to the deep surface of the medial collateral ligament (MCL), an important stabilizing ligament. Therefore injury to the medial meniscus will very often also result in injury and sprain to the MCL. The cause of the knee pain may be the MCL sprain, but MCL sprains are usually not addressed, especially if the MRI shows a meniscal tear. This could explain pain persisting after meniscal surgery.
