Anterior Cruciate Ligament ACL

By: Kevin M. Kaplan, MD

In the following video, Dr. Kevin M. Kaplan, describes one of the most common injuries, ACL tears. In addition, he describes ways to improve and prevent ACL injuries. The ACL Reconstruction surgery is the most common ligament which is repaired due to athletic competition. Most often, the ACL ligament is torn by planting the foot and a change of direction.  The athlete experiences a “pop” and immediate pain. Usually, in my experience, the athlete cannot bear weight on the affected leg.  The RICE technique should be used for immediate care. The athlete should also be place in an immobilizer to protect the knee.

If you think you are torn your ACL Ligament, you should be properly evaluated by an Orthopedic Physician.  To learn more about the Knee,  go to torn ACL symptoms,
