Main Forums Body Forum Knee & Lower Leg Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Tears

  • ACL tearThe anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the four major ligaments in the knee. It runs through the middle of the knee and connects the thigh to the shin, giving stability to the knee joint. It provides the primary restraint to the femur (thigh bone) moving on the tibia (shin bone). It also provides stability by helping to control the excessive rotation of the knee.

    Anterior cruciate ligament tears, or ACL tears, are one of the most common knee injuries for athletes. ACL tears often occur in sports that require a lot of agility, or “cutting,” where an athlete suddenly changes directions while moving quickly.

    This ligament can tear, either partially or completely, due to injury.
