What is cruciate ligament?
Cruciate ligament is a pair of connective tissue that serves to attach the femur with the shin. The name cruciate itself is derived from the Latin “crux” which in English is called “cross” or crossed because of the form of a pair of ligaments that cross each other. Cruciate ligaments consist of the anterior cruciate ligaments and the posterior cruciate ligaments.
What is the function of cruciate ligament?
Cruciate ligaments are 2 of 4 ligaments that serve to stabilize the knee joint when moving so it is not easy to shift. In addition to cruciate ligaments, there are also medial and lateral collateral ligaments. An anterior cruciate ligament serves to keep the shin from moving forward, while the posterior cruciate ligament serves to keep the shin from shifting backward.
What causes thigh injuries after exercise?
An anterior cruciate ligament injury is caused by a sports injury, either contact or non-contact.
Signs and symptoms of thigh injuries after exercise
At thigh injury specialist clinic, in order for our orthopaedic to diagnose an anterior cruciate ligament injury, our doctors will usually ask about the mechanism of the injury-whether contact or non-contact. The mechanism of non-contact injury is usually associated with a sudden change of running direction or when landing after a jump. The patient will hear the “Pop!” Sound on the knee and usually can not continue the exercise because of unstable thigh pain, swelling, and knee. Within hours will form hemarthrosis. Whereas in contact injuries are usually associated with wider injuries.

A thigh injury (cruciate ligament) should be checked by a doctor for an accurate diagnosis
To see the ligament structure damaged by a thigh injury can be used MRI, arthrogram, or X-ray examination.
MRI is the most sensitive scanning technique (90-98%) and can find a tear in the anterior cruciate ligament. With X-rays, doctors may find a Segond fracture of the anteroposterior, the avulsion fracture of the lateral capsule, which is an indirect indication of anterior krusiatum ligament injury. Meanwhile, X-rays lateral position can be found lateral fracture notch in the lateral femoral condyle. This finding is commonly found in chronic anterior krusiatum ligament injury caused by an anterior subluxation of the lateral tibial base.
In general, arthrogram has been replaced by MRI and arthrogram should be performed by a doctor who is experienced in performing double-contrast arthrography.
