ACL/MCL/LCL Knee Injury
The Anterior Cruciate Ligament prevents the femur (thigh bone) from moving forwards when bearing weight. It also prevents rotation of the joint. Injuries of the ACL occur most often when sport or exercise involves pivoting, suddenly slowing or stopping or landing a jump.
Most athletes who have experienced a tear of the ACL describes the sound as a loud ‘pop’ or ‘crack’. Hemarthrosis (bleeding into the joint cavity) can often occur with a torn ACL which will be visible as large painful swelling around the injury.
