There are many causes of ACL tears

Common causes of ACL tears are instances of trauma, such as a hard hit to the side of the knee, sudden stops or sharp turns, or landing awkwardly after jumping. Many times, these injures are caused by a combination of weak hamstrings and tight quadriceps muscles which lead to increased pressure on the ligaments and can prevent proper coordination during sporting motions. Depending on the severity of the tear, chiropractic care, physiotherapy sessions, and massage therapy may be used in tandem to help reduce swelling while allowing for re-stabilization of the affected knee. If you are experiencing any discomfort in your knees and suspect an ACL tear has occurred, it is important to see a chiropractor right away as delayed diagnosis may impair proper healing.

What is an ACL tear?

An Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) tear is a relatively common knee injury among athletes, typically from a sudden directional change or direct contact to the knee. The ACL is an important ligament that is located in the middle of the knee and provides stability for the knee joint. A tear can occur when the ligament is over-stretched or if it experiences a direct hit. Depending on the severity of the tear, symptoms range from mild instability to complete rupture of the ligament.

What are the symptoms of an ACL tear?

Symptoms of an ACL tear include immediate and severe pain that often requires a person to stop their activity right away. While some acute knee injuries can cause the knee to swell immediately, an ACL tear may not create noticeable swelling until after several hours or even days. The affected area may also feel weak and unstable when weight is applied, such as when attempting to stand or walk. Individuals with an ACL tear may also hear a “pop” sound at the time of injury due to the tearing of the major ligament in the knee.
