ACL Injuries Directory

The ACL is one of four ligaments in the knee that connect the upper and lower leg bones. An ACL injury is almost always related to sports such as soccer or football. After your doctor diagnoses an ACL injury with tests such as an arthroscopy or an MRI, he or she will prescribe treatments. These may include rest, rehabilitation, or surgery.
