Professional physical therapist treating a patient for jumper's knee.

Physical Therapy for ACL tears

The ACL or ‘anterior cruciate ligament’ is an important internal ligament that stabilizes the knee joint. It can be injured when the ligament is overstretched, as can frequently happen in high impact sports like basketball, football, skiing, and gymnastics.  This can happen easily if an athlete lands flat on their heels, which directs a large amount of force up to the knee joint.  A pop or crack may be heard at the time of injury, followed by symptoms of extreme pain, major swelling and warmth in the joint from bleeding.

Physical Therapy for Jumper's knee

Patellar tendonitis, more commonly known as ‘jumper’s knee’, occurs in the tendon which attaches the top of the shin bone and the knee cap.  Jumper’s knee most often occurs from overuse and repetitive strain, such as with athletes that perform a large amount of jumping movements and quick changes in direction. Symptoms can include pain at the bottom of the kneecap, stiffness after exercise, and a swelling or inflammation of the tendon.
