ACL Repair – Sports Injury

DID YOU KNOW…

The Bone & Joint Institute of South Georgia specializes in all types of sports injuries. The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is one of the most commonly injured ligaments of the knee. Approximately 50 percent of ACL injuries occur in combination with damage to the meniscus, articular cartilage, or other ligaments.

An injured ACL is associated with the following symptoms:

• An audible pop or snapping upon injury.
• Immediate and sustained swelling in the knee.
• Instability in the knee that can cause it to give out.
• Inability to bear weight.
• Significant pain persists hours following the injury.
• A feeling of fullness in the knee.
• Physical Rehab after ACL surgery may take several months.
The time it takes to return to normal activities or sports is 
different for each person.
