Ligament and tendon injuries
Ligaments and tendon injuries frequently occur both after blunt trauma (impact on the knee, twisting of a joint), but also after injuries with open wounds (deep cuts).
An injured ligament or an injured tendon cannot function properly. Suspicious signs for a ligament or tendon injury can be:
- Pain and swelling in the injured area
- Bruising in the injured area
- Instability in the corresponding joint
- Loss of strength or complete inability to move in the injured joint
If ligament or tendon injuries are suspected, prompt clarification should be carried out. Especially if there is a wound or open injury, the clarification must be carried out immediately.
