Kneecap dislocations are a common type of knee injury and can be caused by events such as a sudden twist of the leg during a basketball game or through a blow to the knee on the soccer field. Some common treatment methods include the RICE method, physical therapy and kneecap surgery.
ACL injuries often result in a “pop” in the knee, followed by a feeling like your knee is about to give out. While ACL tears may be managed with physical therapy/rehabilitation alone, they may typically require surgery in order for athletes to return to competitive sports.
