Knee buckling at small angle
« on: July 04, 2017, 02:53:38 AM »
Hyper extended and landed on my knee wrong while playing basketball. The knee gave out in the direction of the ACL and immediately after the MCL inwards. I've attached a video below showing the actual point where there is instability and buckling. Injury was 1 month ago. I think it is a partial ACL tear as I move pretty good with weight bearing and have 90-95% range of motion. I think 1 of the 2 groups of ACL fibers has been torn making this a grade 2 ACL tear.

Hoping for someone to be able to clarify whether the injured ligament is indeed the ACL (I hope it's the MCL but I think it's mostly healed)

With my physician my acl has passed the Lachman's test and my MCL passed the Valgus test... I will see another specialist. Immediately after injury the ER doctor said it was a complete tear. I don't have many issues other than this small angle which is exposed by having the MCL face upwards. The gravity droops my lower limb as I fully extend my leg.
