Recent ACL tear

Post by Revanth7621 »

I have full ACL tear recently, but i don't have any instability(as checked clinically), thanks to my hamstring n quadriceps muscles. But, i can play tennis, volleyball(i can jump, but it i jump wrongly, which i did once, i had pes anserine bursitis and okay now after good physiotherapy).
I never tried running very fast, never played any sport because subconsciously I'm scared something happens again.
In this situation, anyway i won't be playing much in life because I'm working for government of India, so in this situation, shall I go for ACL reconstruction or just strength my hamstring more n manage with it??

Please suggest me ... Thanks!

Hi
I think you will find lots of help with exercises in this 'course' by a physiotherapist - /KNEEnotes/articles/general-articles/20 ... acl-injury

Personally I'd go for a reconstruction.

In the early days after my ACL rupture in 2004 - I felt fine - as time goes on you may find your knee giving way whilst you change direction and the wear on your meniscus may well be accelerated with no ACL in place - Rehab isnt easy - but an ACL deficient knee is not an ideal situation
