Tests and diagnosis

MRI

MRI uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the organs and tissues within your body.

Treatments and drugs

ACL reconstruction

If you tear your ACL, a major ligament in your knee, ACL reconstruction surgery to repair the damage may help restore your knee function.

Knee braces

A knee brace may reduce osteoarthritis pain in your knee by shifting the force of your weight off the damaged part of your knee when you walk.
