Damage to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) of the knee is one of the most highly publicised injuries in Sport.
These injuries can be associated with dramatic footage of the injury occurring.
They are injuries that often result in the surgery known as knee reconstruction.
Physiotherapists and sports medicine doctors/physicians regularly deal with this major injury.
Lifecare centres and the physiotherapists, and sports medicine doctors regularly diagnose and treat ACL injuries, before and after surgery, and are critical in getting athletes back to normal after this injury.
Sports Medicine Australia is a not for profit member organisation has released an excellent information brochure about ACL injuries.
As most of the sports medicine doctor, physiotherapists, and podiatrists are active members of Sports Medicine Australia, we recommend you view this brochure, and it’s contents.
