Apart from the hips, knees are technically designed to carry the entire weight of the person. As a result, knee problems and pain in the knees are typical scenarios that often everyone experiences. Knee problem can lead to swelling in the knees and can limit the usage of the knees dramatically. A person's free flowing movement can be severely hampered due to this. An injury can also cause knee problems in a person. The Orthopedist will give a complete physical examination for identifying the problem. X-Rays and MRI would be taken to identify the root-cause and to check for any ligament tear. It is better to consult an Orthopedist immediately if the symptoms are found. The initial knee injury treatment will be to solve the problem with the use of conventional methods like placing ice on the swelling and compressing the knee with the usage of elastic bandage and Straps. These along with muscle relaxants and anti-inflammatory painkillers can reduce the knee injury to a considerable extent. Also in most of the cases, physical therapies have to be undertaken to get back the momentum. Surgeries are rare, and if performed, they will be done in the form of a reconstructive knee surgery, where the tendons from other parts of the leg are cut and compressed in the places of the torn ligaments for the tissue to build. Extreme sports and doing heavy works have to be avoided till the recovery period and post the recuperation, a person can get back to his normal activities.
