What is an ACL sprain?

An ACL sprain is an injury in which the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears or stretches beyond its normal range of motion. This can occur during any activity that causes a sudden twist, pivot, or change in direction of the knee joint.

What are the symptoms of an ACL sprain?

Symptoms of an ACL sprain may include swelling and pain in the knee, instability and a feeling of “giving way” when attempting to move the injured knee, and occasionally signs of neurological damage such as tingling or numbness. While rest, ice, compression and elevation are common methods for treating ACL sprains, medical attention should also be sought to properly assess the severity of the injury. Depending on the extent of the tear, more serious treatments may involve physical therapy to regain mobility or even surgery to repair the damaged ligament.
