What is ACL Tear?

A tear in the anterior cruciate ligament is known as ACL tear. It is one of the major ligaments in the knee. Athletes and women who wear high heels for long hours are likely to suffer from an ACL tear often. ACL tear is commonly witnessed in players related to soccer, football, cricket, basketball etc where sudden jumping, landing and other such body movements are required. The surgery to reconstruct a torn or injured ACL is known as ACL Reconstruction.

The knee joint is a complex structure of ligaments, bones, tissues and tendons that jointly makes the knee function. In case of any injury, it is important for the person to get a quick and accurate diagnosis and treatment to repair the injury.

Treatment

Physical examination for ACL-Tear in mumbai

Diagnosis

During the physical examination, the doctor will check the swelling in the knee. The doctor may also ask you to change positions of the knee to check if the knee is functioning properly. The diagnosis, in most cases, can be done on the basis of the physical test alone, but if the injury looks severe, the doctor may ask you to take a few more tests such as - X-rays and MRI.

Surgery

The surgery to repair a torn ACL is known as ACL Reconstruction. During the process, the surgeon operates and removes the injured ligament and replaces it with a segment of tendon tissue. The tendon tissue works similar to that of a ligament which connects the muscle to bone.

The surgeon will use a piece of tendon from another part of the knee or a tendon from a deceased donor. After the surgery, the patient can resume a rehabilitative therapy course for recovery.

For recovery, you can do the following self care at home:

  • Icing
  • Proper rest
  • Use compression
  • Keep your knee in elevated position

What to expect after my ACL tear surgery?

After your ACL tear surgery, rehabilitation will begin immediately in the hospital itself. Your ACL tear surgeon will suggest some specific exercises to do in order to strengthen your knee and restore full knee movement. The aim of physiotherapy is to regain the complete range of knee motion as it used to be prior to the injury and also reduce swelling after the surgery.

Before you are discharged from the hospital, the ACL tear surgeon will prescribe medications to manage pain during the recovery period and will suggest you personalised exercises that suit your needs and goals to boost your recovery. Your rehabilitation after discharge from the hospital will be supervised by the ACL tear doctor and will involve exercises that will focus on muscle strengthening. Activities such as riding an exercise bike, swimming can be very helpful to get back to an active lifestyle after your ACL tear surgery. If you are looking for the best and most successful ACL tear treatment in Mumbai, visit Pristyn Care and get consultation from renowned, board certified ACL tear doctors and surgeons in Mumbai.

When should you undergo ACL tear surgery in Mumbai?

If you have a completely torn ACL, surgery would be needed to repair the torn ACL. For grade 3 or grade 4 ACL tear, ACL tear surgery or ACL reconstruction should be scheduled for between 3 and 6 weeks after having the injury. This will allow the inflammation and swelling in the area to subside. If the ACL reconstruction surgery is performed too early, the patient may develop arthrofibrosis- a complication of injury or trauma where excessive scar tissue response causes painful restriction of joint motion. Typically, orthopedic surgeons scale the appropriate timing of ACL tear surgery based on-

  • Presence of other injuries that may need to be treated first
  • The knee’s physical appearance
  • The level of pain experienced by the patient
  • The knee’s range of motion and quality of muscle control when bending or straightening the leg

To decide the best treatment for ACL tear, the orthopedic doctor will need to thoroughly examine and diagnose the condition. To know the best ACL tear treatment in Mumbai for you or to undergo ACL tear surgery, get in touch with us.
