The ACL is an important internal stabilizer of the knee joint – restraining hyperextension – the injury resulting when its biomechanical limits are exceeded/over-stretched. Only a premier Doctor of Physical Therapy has the ability to diagnose and treat an ACL tear. If your ACL tear is not diagnosed properly, the best treatment will be worthless.
ACL Tear Diagnosis
A correct diagnosis of an ACL tear requires:
- Expert physical examination of the knee
- Analysis of the patient’s medical history
- Explanation and assessment of the circumstances surrounding the cause of the injury
Partial or complete tear of the ACL, can occur over time or immediately.
- Repetitive swiveling on the knee
- Sudden blows to the knee
Pre and Post ACL Surgery Therapy Rehabilitation
The Multidisciplinary Therapeutic Treatment Team at Spine and Sports Medicine have the specialization to stabilize and rehabilitate your torn ACL pre- and post-surgery. Extensive Physical Therapy is essential both before and after ACL surgery for one’s injury to heal properly. If instability of the knee persists – especially rotary instability – progressive and degenerative arthritis of the knee will ensue.
