In brief: Sprain, strain, tear

Knee sprains, muscles strains and tears of the internal cartilage/meniscus are the most common knee injuries.
The medial collateral ligament (mcl) is the most commonly sprained ligament. The hamstrings are the most strained muscle group, and the meniscus and articular cartilage can often sustain tears that require arthroscopy intervention (surgery).
