Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury (ACL Injury)
Anterior Cruciate Ligament or ACL tear and injuries are prevalent in sports, including rugby, football, basketball, tennis, and badminton. The sudden change of direction or sudden stops while running full speed is the culprit. Tearing the anterior cruciate ligament is not easy! The difficulty is due to associated injuries to other knee ligaments, as well as cartilage, meniscus, bones, and knee joints.
ACL injuries are rarely limited to the anterior cruciate ligament. To recovery, you will need comprehensive therapies for the whole knee. It requires focused therapy options for the ACL as well as other knee ligaments. ACL tear often presents with minor or severe damage to other structures, including PCL (Posterior Cruciate Ligament), MCL (Medial Collateral Ligament), and LCL (Lateral Collateral Ligament) as well as cartilage and meniscal damage within the knee. As the name applies, Anterior Cruciate Ligament is a ligament. Its purpose is to keep your leg from a forward or anterior dislocation. Prevention of posterior or backward displacement is through the PCL or the posterior cruciate ligament.
ACL and PCL strain are acutely painful. Pain from a torn anterior cruciate ligament can be felt in front of the knee, lower thigh, and may even cause significant lower leg pain. Regardless of severity, anterior cruciate ligament injuries require the utmost targeted attention for a speedy recovery. If the care you get is not sufficient, the degrees of tear may progress. The most common cause of anterior cruciate ligament injury is the neglect of minor damages. If you have an injured knee, visit our center.

ACL is the essential ligament in the knee. For this ligament to function at or near 100%, other ligaments and structures must also be functioning near optimum levels. Anterior cruciate ligament injuries rarely occur in the absence of damage or injury to other knee ligaments or structures. The human knee joint has four main ligaments:
- Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL)
- Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL)
- Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL)
- Lateral Collaterally Ligament (LCL)
Together, the four main ligaments connect the thighbone to the leg bone; forming the knee joint and provide stability as well as protection. Knee pain, leg pain, thigh pain, hip pain are common conditions treated by our non-surgical experts and advanced technology.
The Symptoms Of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury
Sudden pain in the knee is the most common symptom of a cruciate ligament tear. Most of the time, the athlete becomes aware that something serious has happened in the knee region when a “pop” is heard in the knee. The popping sounds are the snapping of the cruciate ligament. ACL or PCL does not have pain-sensing nerves, and as such, the tear in itself will not hut. But, the pain is the result of bleeding, which leads to knee joint swelling. Instability, weakness, and an inability to walk may be experienced soon after an ACL tear.
