NC93.Z/S83 Dislocation or strain or sprain of joints or ligaments of knee, unspecified



Dislocation or strain or sprain of joints or ligaments of knee, unspecified, can be caused by a direct blow to the knee, a sudden twist of the knee, or an awkward or unnatural movement of the knee.


Diagnosis of this condition typically involves a physical examination and imaging tests such as an x-ray or an MRI.

Differential diagnosis

Differential diagnosis may include other causes of knee pain such as meniscus tear, patellar tendonitis, and osteoarthritis.


Treatment for this condition typically involves rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Physical therapy may also be recommended to help strengthen the muscles around the knee and improve mobility. In more severe cases, surgery may be required to repair the damaged ligaments or joints.


The prognosis for this condition is generally good with proper treatment and rehabilitation. In most cases, the injured ligaments or joints should heal over time and the knee should regain full range of motion and strength. However, it is important to follow the treatment plan prescribed by your doctor to ensure the best possible outcome.
