Ligament Injuries

Child-Friendly Care For Ligament Injuries

We Provide Comprehensive Treatments For Ligament Sprains and tears in Children

At POBAR we understand that a child’s active lifestyle can sometimes lead to injuries. Ligament injuries occur when the bones that form a joint are forced out of their normal position, often due to trauma or excessive force. They can result in severe pain, swelling, and loss of joint function. Without proper reduction and stabilization, ligament injuries can lead to recurrent instability and joint damage. POBAR specializes in the prompt diagnosis and management of ligament injuries in children, providing expert care to restore joint alignment, relieve symptoms, and prevent future dislocations.

Diagnosis and Treatment

Ligament Injuries may manifest with severe pain, deformity, and loss of joint function following trauma or injury. Our specialists at POBAR diagnose dislocations through physical examination and imaging studies like X-rays to confirm the dislocation and assess associated injuries.

Treatment Options:

  • Closed reduction followed by immobilization: Manual manipulation to realign the joint followed by immobilization to allow healing.
  • Rehabilitation for strengthening and range of motion: Physical therapy to restore joint function and prevent recurrence.
  • Surgical intervention for complex or recurrent dislocations: Surgeons repair damaged structures to restore joint stability.

Recovery Time And Treatment Aftercare

The recovery time for joint dislocations varies depending on the severity of the injury and the chosen treatment approach. With proper treatment and rehabilitation, most individuals can expect to regain function within a few weeks to months.

Treatment Aftercare:

  • Gradual return to activity: Progressive reintroduction of activities helps rebuild strength and stability in the affected joint while minimizing the risk of re-injury.
  • Joint protection techniques: Learning proper body mechanics and using supportive devices, such as braces or tape, can help prevent future dislocations and maintain joint health.
