Sports Knee Injuries
Early diagnosis, collaboration and understanding – the keys to your recovery
Whether you’re an elite athlete or a committed ‘weekend warrior’, it can be tempting to put up with knee injury for as long as you can. Yet whether you delay visiting your knee injury clinic as a result of competitive spirit, the team ethic or a ‘stiff upper lip’, it’s doing you harm.
Early and accurate diagnosis is essential to recovery from a knee injury. Delay seeing your knee consultant, even for a short while, and your recovery could be less successful, or take longer.
Speed is just one of Yorkshire Knee Clinic’s keys to a full recovery. Another is having the right
team of knee specialists, together with a broader pool of expertise including musculoskeletal
radiologists (who use the latest imaging techniques) and specialist physiotherapists who
can provide rapid diagnosis and a clear treatment plan for all knee injuries from
simple cartilage or ligament injuries to major dislocations.
The final element in recovery is helping you understand the nature
of your knee injury, so you make the right recovery choices.
