How Is The Knee Ligament Solution In The Left Leg Broken So It Doesn’t Feel Disturbing?
Hi I’m a 23-year-old woman who had a motorcycle accident that caused my ligament to break in my left leg in 2011 (at the age of 15). Then I operated on an orthopedic hospital with the addition of a screw in the thigh and around the calf. I used to get physiotherapy for a while. I ask, until now 8 years after my left knee accident, I still can’t bend properly. I can’t pray, I can’t squat, I can’t cross my legs, u0026amp; activities that involve bending the leg. Honestly this is very annoying. Can you practice bending yourself at home? And the best solution for me? Thank you

The knee ligament aims to help sustain the stability of the motion and also help the strength of the human knee movement. Ligaments in the knee consist of the 4 most important types, namely anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments, lateral and medial colateral ligaments. Disorders of the knee ligaments can provide accompanying complaints in the form of pain, pop sounds when moving, swelling, loose joint sensation, decreased ability to withstand the load, and decreased stability of the tulip while moving.
Some of the conditions below often cause knee ligament damage, such as:
1. an accident
2. injury during exercise
3. sudden knee movements that cause injury to the knee
In connection with your question, there is a history of broken knee ligaments and surgery for recovery of knee ligaments, so the thing to know is which ligament has been injured. If you have a screw in your thigh and calf area, then the broken ligament may be a lateral or medial collateralligement; however, this needs to be confirmed directly by your orthopedist.
Patients who have been treated for ligamentous rupture and surgery, then the next step is to recover with stretch training and physio therapy under the supervision of a medical rehabilitation physician or physiotherapist. Because your complaint has been running for 8 years and you are not undergoing optimal physiotherapy, the muscles, ligaments and joints after trama become tense and stiff, which ultimately causes movement disorders especially when bending and squatting, so you should consider consulting again with your bone doctor or your medical rehabilitation doctor. This is necessary to find out the current condition of your knee joint and your doctor can plan further treatment related to the limitations of your knee motion. So with direct doctor's examination and supervision, it is expected that physiotherapy exercises can help adjust the movement of ligaments and muscles in the thigh, knee and calf area.
You can do the exercise yourself at home, however, this exercise should you do according to the direction of a medical rehabilitation doctor. Thus, the exercise movements that you do are more optimal in helping recovery.
