SPORTS INJURIES OF THE KNEE

These commonly present with a sudden onset of knee pain. The knee swells up quite considerably and the pain is too severe to continue with the sporting activity. A diagnosis of the type of injury can be made based on both the history of what took place during the injury and a clinical examination. An MRI scan is useful to diagnose soft tissue injuries, such as cartilage tears or cruciate ligament ruptures.
