Ligament Instability in the Knee

There are various ligaments on the knee. They stabilise the joint in conjunction with muscles encompassing the knee joint. The ligaments must have a certain strength in order to ensure stabilisation and proper mobility in the joint.

Ligament weakness (laxity) may occur due to congenital or acquired factors. This frequently results in weakness of the joints. In case of a ligament rupture, stability in the joint may even be lost entirely.
