Seeking Treatment For Knee Injuries
After you are in an accident, you may go to the emergency room and get an x-ray. The doctor may tell you that you have no fractures and did not suffer any broken bones. It is important to follow up with a specialist to make certain that you did not suffer an injury to a knee ligament or cartilage. MRIs and CT scans are helpful in determining internal injuries to the knee and the surrounding tissue.
Doctors usually treat knee injuries conservatively. If you have suffered a torn meniscus or partial ligament tear, your doctor may treat it with rest, ice and medication, followed by physical therapy. If you have suffered a torn meniscus or a torn ligament, your knee may need an injection, arthroscopic surgery or a different type of surgical procedure.
