Conservative cruciate ligament therapy

Not every torn anterior cruciate ligament needs or should be treated surgically. After detailed examination the attending physician discussed the findings with the patient, taking into account the clinical and radiological diagnostic. If one concludes that due to the nature of the injury, the age of the patient, the professional and or sporting demands and the degree of instability, a surgery is not indicated, the adequate conservative treatment strategy will be initiated. Starting with pain therapy and cryotherapy (cold applications), intensive physiotherapy and targeted muscle building workout will attempt to restore the painless movement of the knee joint.
