ACL Injury

knee anatomy

The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is an important ligament which is found in the middle of your knee joint. Its purpose is to keep your knee stable, especially when doing movements like running quickly in different directions.

A tear in this ligament can make your knee feel loose or not stable, and your knee can feel like it may give out.
