Knee sprain

What is knee sprain?

Knee sprain occurs when a strain is generated in the capsular and ligamentous structures of the joint by a forced movement that exceeds physiological limits.

The symptomatology will depend on the severity of the disease:

  • Grade I or mild: Inflammation and pain, with possible sensation of instability.
  • Grade II or moderate: Inflammation and pain, with possible hematoma and functional impotence and instability.
  • Grade III or severe: Inflammation and pain, with possible hematoma, total or almost total functional impotence with instability.


How is this type of sprain treated?

Through a combination of treatment based on manual therapy, rehabilitation exercises and technology.

For this purpose, at Clínica Sohail we carry out a global assessment beforehandWe perform a thorough and complete examination of the musculoskeletal and nervous system, and depending on the results, we assess which type of treatment is the most appropriate for the patient. In a cross-cutting manner, the readaptation team will carry out an intervention through therapeutic exercise

Depending on the degree of injury, and together with the application of technology such as ultrasound-guided percutaneous intratissue electrolysis (EPI), and Echoguided Percutaneous Percutaneous Neuromodulation, Shock waves, Imoove or Magnetic Resonance Therapy (MBST), we will work with a program of control exercises, global postural reeducation (RPG) and/or strength exercises.

The Hyperbaric Chamber can be a great ally in the recovery, thanks to the oxygenation that occurs in the tissues that is produced in the tissues, reduces the recovery times of breaks, wounds, muscle injuries and bone fractures.
