A ligament sprain or tear in the knee is an injury that commonly affects athletes, but nonathletes can also experience these conditions due to accidents or trauma. These injuries typically occur with sudden twisting, stopping, jumping, or direct hits or falls to the knee.
Some ligament tears may require surgery, but physical therapy will continue to play a crucial role in your return to function.
Common symptoms related to ligament sprains or tears include:
Sharp or intense pain
Snapping or popping sound upon injury
Difficulty walking or placing weight on the leg
Feelings of the knee “giving out.”
