Doctor: According to your incomplete description, I am assuming that you mean the ligaments of your knee, you do not specify wh hich part of the knee either, but I strongly recommend you to have a consultation with an orthopedic surgeon in order to perform a complete assessment of your knees to determine which structures have problems and from there proceed with the right treatment.
