acl - partial/complete
« on: May 23, 2006, 01:27:54 PM »
Hi -

So, with 30 seconds left in my daughter's soccer game, playing on a soggy field, she steps one way, plants her left foot and twists the other way.
There will be a MRI this week to see if there's a partial tear, or a complete tear. She's not a "happy camper" to say the least. Never had any type of injury, after a week of icing the area - there is no swelling, she's not limping at all, she can extend the leg, but has trouble bending it completely.

What kind of recovery time are we talking if it's a partial or complete tear? Let's put it this way - will she be playing soccer for her high school starting in September?

I sort of know the answer, but would appreciate any feedback from any highly competitive soccer or basketball players out there.

Sorry to hear about your daughter's injury.  This site might help - check out the tabs on the top of their page also.

Good luck and good healing.  ~Shade
