Injuries to the knee are among the most common problems seen in football. It is important to make an accurate diagnosis as the treatment of knee injuries can vary widely. For example, anterior knee pain commonly develops insidiously and is best managed non-operatively. In contrast, ligamentous injuries are almost always due to direct trauma and are often best managed with surgery.
In this module, you will learn about how to assess an injured knee and how to manage anterior knee pain, patella instability and significant ligamentous injury.
