ACL Injury Treatment in New Jersey

acl injury treatment ocean county nj

An ACL injury can seem like a dire situation, particularly for those who maintain an active lifestyle. The Anterior Cruciate Ligament is the tissue that connects the thighbone and shinbone along the knee. When the ACL is sprained or torn, the results can be instability, extreme pain, or loss of range of motion.

An ACL injury can severely impact your ability to walk, much less jump, run, and crouch. Receiving treatment for an ACL injury is a must, and the quality of care is of the utmost importance if full range of motion is to be restored.

How Do I Know If I Have An ACL Injury?

When you change direction very quickly, stop suddenly, are stopped by direct collision, or land from jumping incorrectly, you’re at risk of spraining or tearing your ACL. Most patients report hearing a “popping” sound at the time of their injury and then find it difficult or painful to put weight on the affected knee.

Pain is often almost immediate with notable swelling occurring within the first 24 hours of the injury. ACL injuries are often accompanied by a loss of range of motion, tenderness along the joint line, and difficulty walking for an extended period of time.
