What are Knee Ligaments?
Knee Ligaments are bands of tough, elastic connective tissue that surround a joint. Ligaments connect the bones in the body, giving support to a joint and limiting the joint’s movement.
If a knee ligament is damaged, the knee joint may become unstable. Often, ligament damage happens from a sports injury, trauma or from a fall and can cause severe pain. Torn ligaments can severely limit normal knee movement, making it difficult to turn, pivot or twist the leg. Patients in Vail, Aspen and the surrounding Denver, Colorado communities can see Armando Vidal, MD, complex knee surgeon, for the best and most innovative knee ligament treatment.
