Ligament Injuries

Many ligament injuries of the knee are simple pulls. They are commonly referred to as a “sprained knee.” Knee sprains respond very well to our conservative rehabilitation. If a ligament is stretched beyond its elastic limits, it can tear or rupture. In these cases, we provide MRI prescription and referral for surgical consultation.

Doctor's Treatment Plan
The treatment consists of therapeutic strengthening exercises, and stretches, for a more functional range of motion. Physiotherapies, including ultrasound, are utilized to reduce any swelling and/or inflammation. Home exercises to increase the patient’s balance and proprioception are prescribed to help prevent future injuries.

  Note: It should always be considered that not all injuries are spinal related, and therefore not all injuries can be fully corrected with the benefit of chiropractic medicine. Further, the injury profiles and recommendations for treatment should in no way be used as a substitute for the care of a physician.
