Ligaments are strong bands of soft tissue that hold bones together, supporting the joints and preventing abnormal movement. They are important for stability and strength.
It is common for ligament injuries to occur while playing sports like football, basketball and skiing. The classic injury scenario is a change in direction, or jump/landing that goes wrong, twisting the knee causing ligaments to stretch or tear.
Symptoms are varied and dependent on injury type and scenario, a significant number of patients after injury may experience:
- Hearing a ‘pop’ or ‘snap’
- Knee instability
- Inability to bear weight
