An Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) tear is one of the most common knee injuries, especially in athletes that play high demand sports (IE. soccer, football, basketball). ACL tears can be caused by changing direction rapidly, stopping suddenly, slowing down while running or landing from a jump incorrectly. Symptoms include: pain with swelling, loss of full range of motion, tenderness along the joint line, and discomfort while walking.
