Stretch of ligaments: Sprains occur when ligaments (tissues holding joints together) stretch. The ACL is a ligament in the inside of the knee. The MCL is on the middle side of the knee. Disruption os ACL means it was probably/partially torn. Patella alta means that your knee cap is higher than usual. You should discuss these findings with the ordering physician so she/he can determine appropriate treatmen

What is treatment for a contusion hair line fracture in your knee cap?

Depends on direction: This depends on the direction of fracture. If the fracture is horizontal, the knee has to be immobilized to prevent possible displacement of the fracture and disruption of the knee extensor mechanism. If the fracture is vertical, you don't have to do much. Just don't do anything that causes pain in the knee and try to prevent any further trauma for about 2-3 months.
