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. The bottom line: Delaying treatment will only worsen your ACL injury .

Top Notch ACL Injuries Treatment Center

The ACL is one of four very important and integral parts comprising the structure of the knee. Of the four ligaments holding together the integrity of the knee joint, the ACL tends to be the one most commonly torn in sports-related injuries. Labeled as anterior ligament, the ACL is found toward the front side of the knee. The ACL joins the bottom of the femur – thigh bone – to the tibia – shin bone. The ACL is an important internal stabilizer of the knee joint – restraining hyperextension – the injury resulting when its biomechanical limits are exceeded/over-stretched.

Partial or complete tear of the ACL, can occur over time or immediately.

  • Repetitive swiveling on the knee
  • Sudden blows to the knee

Accurate Diagnosis of ACL Tear

Only a licensed Doctor of Physical Therapy has the ability to diagnose and treat an ACL tear to the knee. If one’s ACL injury is not diagnosed properly, the best treatment will be worthless.

A thorough diagnosis 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

For serious ACL tears, an X-Ray or MRI is likely to be ordered to determine the extent of bone or ligament damage. This is especially true when the patient does not seek immediate medical after the injury and additional damage has been sustained due to movement of the knee. Unstable ligaments holding the knee joint together allow cartilage to rub together through movement. This cartilage will become worn and cause irreparable damage to the knee, such as osteoarthritis.
