ACL Tear

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is the most important stabilizing ligament in the knee. A tear in the ACL disrupts the knee’s stability. The ACL is located behind the kneecap in the central part of the knee.  This injury often occurs when the knee hyper-extends with a twist. Cutting and twisting sports such as skiing, tennis or soccer see a high occurrence of this injury with relatively low force.
