The ACL is a ligament located inside the knee joint that helps maintain stability in the forward direction, preventing the shin bone (tibia) from moving too far forward in relation to the thigh bone (femur). This type of knee ligament injury is the most common and can occur suddenly due to a twisting motion, such as during physical activity or in everyday life.

Symptoms of Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Tears

Symptoms may include rapid swelling, severe pain, reduced range of motion, and an inability to continue activity. You may also experience a loud pop or "popping" sensation in the knee, as well as a feeling of instability or "giving way" when bearing weight.

Diagnosis of Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Tears

ACL tears can be identified by a physical examination. An MRI can help to confirm the diagnosis and rule out other potential reasons of knee discomfort.
