The industrialization and the traffic development increase the frequency of ligament injuries in people, whereas the sportsmen belong to a category where this type of injury occurs most frequently. The average age of the people exposed to ligament injuries is around the age of 30. A precondition for a successful treatment in patients with ligament lesions is an accurate and timely diagnosis, well-performed surgical procedure and an appropriate and timely rehabilitation. The diagnosis is usually performed with RTG (radiography), CTM (computed tomography) and MRI (magnetic resonance) as the most accurate medical imaging technique. Moreover, this also includes various specific tests by which an accurate and timely diagnosis is established. The successfully performed surgery is followed by a rehabilitation treatment. The rehabilitation is performed in protocols which are especially created and designed for these types of injuries. The protocols comprise specific exercises in different postures by which optimal results are achieved, with regard to the range of movement in the knee joint as well as with regard to the strength of the quadriceps as the biggest and strongest muscle, and also a muscle that has the greatest role in the stability of the knee. The successfully performed rehabilitation in protocols means a fast return of the daily activities in full range, and for the sportsmen a fast return to the sports field and beginning with the trainings in full range and without limitation.
