We Do

ACL Tears

(Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tears)

ACL tears are often caused by athletic or non-athletic related activity in which the knee is forced into hyperextension, twisting, or abnormal rotation. Treatments for ACL tears are very individualized. SportsMed’s orthopaedic knee surgeons evaluate the knee and decide if the patient needs ACL reconstruction, physical therapy, bracing, or a combination of these. The goal of both the surgical and non-surgical treatments is to reduce knee pain, swelling, and stability. Our goal is to return the knee’s normal function.
