The ACL Symptoms You Need To Know

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

1975078_1524726404420287_805324537_nACL 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.
