A-Z of Injuries

Knee - Anterior Cruciate Injuries

(ACL)

The anterior cruciate lies deep in the knee joint, injury to this ligament is fairly common in sports that involve twisting and changing direction.

Signs & symptoms:

  • Knee pain
  • Knee instability especially on turning
  • Swelling of knee

Treatment for most ACL injuries is surgical reconstruction to restore knee joint stability and reduce the risk of developing arthritic changes. Physiotherapy is required to supervise the rehabilitation process following surgery and can last up to 1 year.
