Colorado Knee Sprain Treatment

The knee is one of the most complex joints in the body and is also the joint that is most commonly injured. Because the knee is great at backward and forward movements but cannot tolerate side-to-side or twisting movements, it is often sprained during skiing and contact sports. Though finding effective Colorado knee sprain treatment can be difficult, we are confident that Structura Body Therapies can help!

Colorado Knee Sprain Treatment and ACL Sprains

ACL injuries are very common, and, unfortunately, you are more likely to have a severe (third degree) ACL sprain than a less severe one (first or second degree). Eighty-five percent of ACL sprains involve a complete rupture.

These ACL injuries most often happen when the knee is violently twisted while the foot is flat on the ground. This type of motion occurs in sports, especially those that involve deceleration, changing direction, or jumping. ACL injuries take time to heal, but our Colorado knee sprain treatment will quicken your recovery!

Less Common Ligament Sprains and Colorado Knee Sprain Treatment

Posterior cruciate and capsular ligament (PCL) sprains occur when the knee has been hyper-extended (forced backward). These injuries, like many other knee injuries, require at least six weeks of healing time.

Medial collateral ligament (MCL) sprains happen when the knee is forced inward during a sport or another activity. For example, if the knee is kicked from the outside, an MCL sprain can occur.

Lateral collateral ligament (LCL) sprains happen when the knee is pushed beyond the little toe. This can occur for a variety of reasons, many of them involving sports and anaerobic exercise.

Once we have identified what the cause of your knee pain is, we can set you up with effective Colorado Springs knee sprain treatment that targets the reason for the pain through massage and trigger point therapies. Every treatment is customized, so you are getting the best treatment for you, your injury, and your lifestyle.
