What is ACL Tear?
A rupture or sprain of the anterior cruciate ligament commonly referred to as the ACL, one of the strong bands of tissue that connects your thigh bone (femur) to your shinbone, is known as an ACL injury. ACL injuries are most frequent in sports like soccer, basketball, football, and downhill skiing, which entail abrupt pauses or changes in direction, jumping, and landing.
When ACL damage occurs, many patients hear a pop or experience a “popping” feeling in their knee. It is possible that your knee will expand, become unstable, and become too painful to bear weight on.
The following list outlines some of the most common signs and symptoms of an ACL injury that patients might go through:
- The sensation of a loud pop or “popping” in the knee.
- Pain that is unbearable and makes it impossible to continue doing things.
- Rapid enlargement.
- Range of motion loss.
- With weight bearing, a sensation of instability or “giving way”.
If you are afflicted by any of the above, it might be time to visit an ACL doctor in Delhi.
Your ACL doctor will examine your knee for swelling and pain during the physical exam, comparing your damaged knee to your intact knee. He or she may also move your knee into different positions to evaluate its range of motion and general function. They may also request imaging tests, such as CT scans and X-rays, to ensure the accuracy of the diagnosis.
The treatment of such a tear can range anywhere from the RICE model, followed by rehabilitation to surgery, depending on the severity of the injury and resulting tear. Nonetheless, the comfort, accessibility, affordability, and health of our valued patients are of the utmost importance to our experienced staff at Uphealth.We offer advanced laser and laparoscopic surgical treatment.
