About ACL Injuries
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries occur when there is a swift blow to the knee or when the leg is subjected to intense pressure and twisting. During a car crash, knees may bang into the dashboard. In a rollover, the knees may hit the dashboard, door, window, or even the roof of the car.
The level of ACL injury depends on whether the ACL is torn or ruptured. An ACL tear may be painful, but the knee will be stable and able to bear weight. On the other hand, if the ligament ruptures, you will have severe pain and complete loss of joint stability.
ACL Injury Treatment and Recovery
X-rays or MRIs are helpful in diagnosing an ACL injury. But, early diagnosis is not always possible because of the extensive pain and swelling. An unrepaired, torn ACL will make you more likely to develop arthritis in that knee and leave you prone to a meniscus tear. So, for the best long-term prognosis, surgery is usually recommended.
With or without surgery the recovery time is lengthy — many months. You will have to wear a supportive brace and physical therapy is necessary to regain range of motion and strength.
