ACL Injury in Tampa, Brandon, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Lakeland & Neighboring Regions

An ACL injury can be debilitating. Your ACL, or anterior cruciate ligament, is one of the most vital ligaments in the knee. In addition to providing stability when your knee rotates, this crucial ligament is responsible for keeping the tibia from sliding out of place. If you tear this ligament, your symptoms will often be severe enough to prohibit you from actively bearing weight on the injured knee.

Symptoms of an ACL injury can include:

  • Hearing or feeling a noticeable pop in the knee
  • Sudden, severe and lasting pain
  • An inability to bear weight on the injured leg
  • Joint swelling
  • Loss of range of motion

ACL tears occur most often during sports and other extraneous physical activity. However, simple movements can also cause your ACL to partially or completely tear. Oftentimes, simple directional changes or sudden stops in movement can cause the ACL to tear. Other times, direct contact or blows to the knee are the cause of the injury.

If you’ve torn your ACL, there may be no getting out of a surgical repair to restore range of motion, eliminate pain and get back to your normal everyday activities, but you don’t need to schedule a knee replacement surgery. Luckily, your orthopedic specialists at Advanced Regenerative Orthopedics have designed an innovative, three-tiered treatment approach to address your injuries and get you back on your feet.
