ACL Tear

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is the central ligament of the knee, which stabilises the joint especially in pivoting movements.

ACL can be torn following an injury ranging from a trivial fall during sporting activities or road accidents etc. Knee pain and swelling following an ACL injury usually settles down in a week, but the knee might feel unstable with an uncomfortable feeling especially in slippery or uneven surface or during activities. Every time the knee slips there is a risk of damaging other normal structures in the knee including meniscus and cartilage.

Cure to this issue is to prevent the knee from slipping further on.

This could be achieved by various means such as :

  • Rehabilitation Exercises,
  • Braces,
  • Arthroscopic ACL Repair,
  • Arthroscopic ACL Reconstruction,
  • Augmented ALL Reconstruction,
  • Augmented Alignment Correction Osteotomy.

Methods of the above treatment is essential for an individual depending on multiple factors which will then be evaluated by the Knee Specialist at Ortho One.
