The ACL and Knee Problems-Chiropractic topics

The ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) is one of the most commonly injured structures of the knee that may be injured in sports. Often problems with the medial meniscus contribute to ACL tears. The ACL and medial meniscus are usually injured by different mechanisms. The meniscus is most often injured by a twisting of the bent knee while the ACL is injured by abrupt stopping motions of the knee.
Tears of the ACL can result in excess motion at the knee including laxity in back to front movements of the tibia (large bone in lower leg). Excess movement in the front to back motion of the knee may indicate injury to the PCL (posterior cruciate ligament).
