Injury to the Soft Structures of the Knee
Being the largest joint in the body, the knee joint is formed by the femur, tibia, fibula and peripheral soft structures. Sprains and contusions often cause injuries to the soft structures. The most frequent are injuries to the collateral and cruciate ligaments, etc.
Tender points (ashi points)
For injury of accessory ligaments: 12.5 - 25 mg. of hydrocortisone Additionally, 2 cc. of 1% procaine may be injected into tender points.
Note: it is not known how "mg" (a measurement of weight) could be directly injected without putting this material into a wet medium measured such as "ml" or "cc". The source text does not provide this information.
Other measures should be taken if there is fracture.
