Knee Ligaments

Within the knee are 3 bones connecting the knee joint to the thigh bone. Bones are connected to each other with ligaments. Ligaments are like a strong band or rope keeping the knee bone stable and in place.

  • A knee ligament injury is considered a “sprain” and is graded by its severity. The severity determines the treatment and also specifies how long one will be in recovery.
