What is the best treatment for a torn ACL?
In most cases, a torn ACL, unlike most other torn ligaments, does not heal well on its own. Some patients might be able to heal with conservative, non-surgical treatments. However, in most cases of aACL tears, the most appropriate treatment option is a surgery. For those patients who have an active lifestyle, ACL reconstruction is usually the best option for their torn ACL.
ACL reconstruction surgery involves replacing the damaged ligament of the knee joint with a tendon taken from another part of the body in a procedure known as a tendon graft. In case the patient has a complete knee extension, surgery may safely be performed immediately after the ACL injury. However, in most cases, orthopedic surgeons recommend having ACL reconstruction surgery some weeks after the ACL injury in order to allow time for the initial swelling to subside and the knee’s range of motion to improve.
