Knee ACL

One of the most common knee injuries is an anterior cruciate ligament sprain or tear. Athletes who participate in high demand sports like soccer, football, and basketball are more likely to injure their anterior cruciate ligaments. If you have injured your anterior cruciate ligament, you may require surgery to regain full function of your knee. This will depend on several factors, such as the severity of your injury and your activity level.

Common symptoms of a knee ACL include pain with swelling, loss of full range of motion, tenderness along the joint line and discomfort while walking.

Treatment options for a knee ACL include surgery, bracing and physical therapy.
