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
  • Bruise in the injured area
  • Instability in the corresponding joint
  • Reduced 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.
