Your question is a bit confusing. There's really not much you can do to your ACL -- you can sprain it or tear it. That's about it. ACL sprains are uncommon, because they usually go all the way into a partial tear. A torn ACL typically requires a reconstruction, as it is a major ligament in the knee with significant stabilization responsibilities.

Your doctor should go over all your treatment options with you. After you appointment, come back and check out the Cruciate Ligaments board, a short scroll down the list from this one. Lots of good info and fellow ACL'ers there.

Good luck!
