ACL tear: Understanding the injury

The structurally complex knee is supported by four essential ligaments, of which the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) plays a crucial role. Located inside the joint, it controls the advancement of the tibia and the external rotation of the leg. Understanding the function of this ligament is fundamental to assessing the impact of a tear and determining the appropriate treatment plan.

Symptoms of a torn ACL

The signs of an ACL tear can be subtle, but often a sudden sensation of the knee giving way is a key indicator. This is followed by a momentary relaxation until the muscles kick in. The Lachman test is commonly used by medical professionals to diagnose this injury, and magnetic resonance imaging can confirm the diagnosis, enabling rapid, targeted intervention.
