Physical Therapy for Knee Injury Recovery

Physical therapy treatments for knee injuries may include:

  • Strengthening exercises
  • Balance
  • Application of heat or ice
  • Kinesiology taping
  • Soft-tissue massages
  • Joint mobilization

My experience with Matt, went far beyond what I expected for my back injury and pain. Matt educated me on how to prevent further injury in any scenario. He would also support my requests for adjustments when I came in and I was in a little more discomfort than normal. His methods of helping a patient recover are vast and not like a PT where you find yourself doing the same exercises every time.

Types of Knee Injuries

Sprains

Injured ligaments, either stretched, partially torn or ruptured, are called sprains. Sprains are classified according to their level of severity. They are classified into grades I, II, and III.

Grade I Sprain

This type of sprain occurs when the fibres of the ligament are stretched, but there is no tear. It is the mildest ACL injury. The symptoms include slight pain in the knee, swelling, tenderness, and a bit of limit to mobility. Your knee is, however, still stable in this case.

This type does not usually require surgery to treat, as rehabilitation specialists can treat it at GoTherex.

Grade II Sprain

Grade II sprain happens when fibres of the ligament are partially torn. The fibres of the ligaments are stretched to the point of getting torn. The symptoms felt in grade I are present in grade II, only that it is more severe. Additionally, your knee might feel unstable and feel like giving out during activities.

This type of ACL injury can be treated with surgery and non-surgical procedures. The procedure that will be opted for depends on the severity and some other factors. Whichever method of treatment is eventually adopted, there is still a need for a physical therapist.

Grade III Sprain

This is also called ACL rupture, and it happens when the fibres of the ligament are completely torn. This type of injury is the most common type of ACL injury. Most times, the knee is usually unstable, and the symptoms are more severe.

Surgery is always almost the case with grade III sprain, but this is only possible when the swelling has gone down, and the leg can be extended fully.

Avulsion Fractures

Avulsion fractures occur when the ACL rips by fracturing either the femur or the tibia from where it attaches to the shinbone. 

Deficient Knee

Some knees do not have ACL, and this impedes stability. The lack of stability which leads to the knee-buckling during activities leads to other injuries.

Surgery is usually recommended for young, active patients or patients whose topography or occupation requires climbing.

Complex and Multi- Ligaments Knee Injuries

This scenario occurs when coupled with ACL injuries; other injuries might be present in the knee. When this occurs, surgery is usually recommended to treat the ACL and other knee injuries present.
