ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) Rupture
This most serious of ligament injuries can cause the knee to become unstable particularly when twisting – a key action for turning on the slopes. Longer term, it can also increase the risk of the knee wearing out early (osteoarthritis).
At Yorkshire Knee Clinic, we can manage these injuries with physiotherapy alone or a combination of physiotherapy and ACL reconstruction surgery. It’s important to get advice from a specialist knee doctor quickly but beware of being pressurised into early ACL surgery abroad as this can be counterproductive.
