What is a knee ligament injury?
They may be stretched (sprained), or sometimes torn (ruptured). A ligament sprain happens when the fibres that make up the ligament are stretched and just a few fibres are torn. A rupture can be partial (more fibres are torn than in a sprain but the ligament is still intact) or complete (the ligament is torn through completely). The majority of knee ligament injuries are sprains and not tears and they tend to settle down quickly.
There are a number of different things that can cause injury to the ligaments in your knee:
- You may have a direct blow to your knee or knock into something with your knee.
- Your knee may be moved beyond its usual range of movement. For example, this can happen during a fall, if you land awkwardly during sport, or after a sudden movement.

What is the treatment for a knee ligament injury?
This may be helpful for some knee ligament injuries. A physiotherapist or sports therapist may be able to help you to improve the range of movement in your injured knee. Exercises will also be suggested for you to do regularly at home to help strengthen the muscles that support your knee joint. If you are considering surgery to repair a torn knee ligament, you may be advised to see a physiotherapist before the operation.
