The ACL Symptoms You Need To Know Atlanta, GA
Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians logo

ACL tears are one of the most common sports injuries experienced by athletes – especially those playing agility sports, such as basketball, soccer and football. And while an ACL injury occurs in greater numbers in males, female athletes are 2-8 times more likely to suffer an ACL injury while playing their sport.

ACL tears happen as a result of quick, sharp, twisting or pivoting motions, or when a person hyperextends the leg. And without prompt and proper treatment, it’s the type of injury that can sideline a player for months.

These are the symptoms you need to know:

  • A popping sound or feeling a pop at the time of injury
  • Intense, sudden, or sharp pain
  • Inability to walk, move, or stand following injury
  • Swelling within 5 – 6 hours of injury
  • Inability to bend or straighten the knee

If you’ve suffered an ACL injury, Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is here to help you get back on your feet and in the game. We offer only the most advanced ACL reconstruction techniques, performed by highly trained sports medicine physicians.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

The Morrow location was a great experience for me. The staff was nothing less than perfect to me. I'm glad I chose this location.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
