What is ACL?
Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is one of the four major ligaments on the knee. The other three are medial collateral ligament (MCL), the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and the lateral collateral ligament (LCL). The ligaments control the movement of the knee. Hyperextension of the ACL and other ligaments causes injury, sprain, partial or complete tear.
Causes of ACL Injuries
Professional or amateur athletes and hobbyists who participate in contact sports like soccer, football and basketball are most likely to injure the ACL. Recent studies have shown young women are more likely than their male counterparts to injure ACL.
In non-sports related injuries, ACL get injured when people make a sudden stop or move, change direction quickly or making a sudden stop or landing from a jump. With sudden movements, the knee hyperextends or over-extends and pivots at the same time, stretching the ACL and causing a tear.
Symptoms of ACL Injuries
Patient usually can notice a loud snapping sound as the ligament tears and pain is felt immediately. Swelling on the knee occurs within an hour as blood from the ruptured ligament spreads around the knee joint. The knee becomes unstable and with the pain, walking becomes difficult. Fluid build-up around the joint makes knee movement difficult.
- Loss or limited range of motion
- Tenderness around the knee joint
- Difficulty and discomfort walking
