Pain and anti-inflammatory medication
Treatment for knee fractures usually involves painkillers in the early painful phase to help a patient manage the symptoms.
Immobilisation in a cast
Non-surgically treated fractures often require immobilisation in a cast.
While the fracture is healing in a cast, physiotherapy can help maintain the muscles around the knee and in the rest of the limb. Physiotherapy after the fracture has healed can also speed up functional recovery and improve the flexibility and strength of the joint.
