After knee trauma, many people suspect that they have sustained an ACL tear, an injury to their knee’s anterior cruciate ligament. This is a serious condition and requires treatment. How does one know whether or not they have an ACL tear?

Because the ACL is in the knee, a torn ACL manifests in the form of a variety of knee issues. A high degree of pain in the knee, instability of the knee, and swelling in the region are common. A torn ACL can cause issues with walking and a popping sound in the knee during movement.

If you’re experiencing these issues, it’s best to contact our office and set up a consultation as soon as possible to find out if you have an ACL tear. During your appointment with our orthopedic knee specialist at Advanced Spine & Orthopedics, you’ll learn about potential treatment methods and more.
