What is an Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury?

Anterior Cruciate Ligament or ACL injury is a knee injury of the front of the knee which can happen due to trauma such as falling, hitting, sliding, or jumping. There can be partial or complete tears of the anterior cruciate ligament, causing mild to severe pain.

How does ACL injury affect you?

You may notice a popping sound when walking or have mild to severe pain along with swelling and inability to move. That’s when you may realise you need to see a doctor. Since the anterior cruciate ligament helps in locomotion, injury to the ACL may cost you motion and locomotory function loss.

We at Omni Hospital take care of every need of our patients. Our team of medical experts, specialising in the interdisciplinary branches of medical sciences, has vast experience in treating and caring for patients with a variety of health problems.

How is ACL injury diagnosed?

The first thing our doctors perform is a physical test for your pain to determine the severity and symptoms. Imaging tests might also be performed to determine the extent of damage to the ACL Anterior Cruciate Ligament. These tests include an X-ray and an MRI.

How is ACL injury treated?

We have been dedicated to providing comprehensive patient care and having an amicable patient-healthcare provider relationship for the management and treatment of injuries and various other problems to ensure the holistic recovery of patients. We first advocate non-surgical methods to treat ACL injury, along with physical therapy and the use of knee braces.
