Treatment Of Ligament Knee Injuries?
Hello, good afternoon.
Hello, thanks for the question.
Injury to the knee can cause damage to the tissue around the knee, it can be skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments, or bones. This injury most often results from exercise or excessive physical activity. Injury to the knee ligaments indicates an injury to the hard band that connects the bones in the knee, causing the function of the knee joint itself to decrease and a person has difficulty moving his legs. Symptoms caused by pain, swelling, and redness. To ascertain what damage to the knee and its severity needs to be done directly by a surgeon, the doctor will conduct a question and answer, physical examination, and additional examinations such as X-ray examination, MRI and so forth. Handling will be adjusted to the conditions that occur. Handling can be in the form of medicines, physiotherapy, to surgical procedures. Injury to the knee is not recommended to be sequenced because it is feared to worsen the condition that occurs, excessive massage can aggravate tears or damage to the knee so that it can cause permanent damage. We recommend that you immediately consult a doctor to get the right treatment. To reduce complaints, several things you can do include:
Rest your knees, avoid strenuous activities or activities that put excessive strain on the knee
Compress with ice cubes wrapped in cloth on the knee for 20-30 minutes every four hours.
Position the knee higher than the heart when lying down by providing gentle knees to the knee
Use knee pads or bandage to prevent further damage
Thus, hopefully it helps.
