    ACL Tear Treatment

    Diagnosis of an ACL Tear

    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.

    ACL 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

    Yes, can walk after ACL surgery in Noida. But there’s a catch. However, do not much much strain on your leg and prefer walking less after ACL surgery.

    Why is ACL tear more common in females?

    What is Grade 3 ACL tear?

    Grade 3 ACL tears happen when the ACL is torn completely in half and is no longer providing any stability to the knee joint. Consult the best orthopedic doctors for ACL surgery in Noida at Pristyn Care.

    What does the anterior cruciate ligament do?

    The ACL keeps the knee joint stable and aligned by not allowing the shin bone from sliding out of its position. The ligament also helps prevent extreme twisting or rotation of the joint.

    Only a proper diagnosis can help confirm a tear in the anterior cruciate ligament. The diagnosis is done with a physical examination and diagnostic scans including X-rays and MRI scans.

    Why do I need ACL reconstruction surgery?

    In the case of minor injuries in the knee, when there is a partial tear or an extreme sprain in the anterior cruciate ligament, nonsurgical treatment methods may prove to be effective. However, in more serious injuries when there is a total tear in the anterior cruciate ligament, ACL reconstruction surgery is the only way to properly address the condition. You would be a viable candidate for an ACL reconstruction surgery if:

    • You have an active lifestyle.
    • You are an athlete and wish to return to sports after recovery.
    • The injury is affecting your routine life.
    • The ACL tear is accompanied by another knee injury, like a meniscus tear.

    How long does the ACL Reconstruction surgery take?

    Minimally invasive reconstruction surgery takes about one to one and a half-hour. However, you may be asked to stay in the hospital for a day for observation after the surgery.

    What happens after an ACL reconstruction surgery?

    Post-surgery, your rehabilitation plan will be started, which will go on for about 6 to 8 months. During the rehabilitation period, you would be taught several exercises and stretches by a trained physiotherapist. These exercises will help strengthen the graft and surrounding muscles.

    For how long would I need to use crutches after an ACL reconstruction surgery?

    Crutches are used to provide additional support while walking and standing and should be used according to one’s requirement. However, in most cases, patients can walk and stand without support within a week.

    What is meniscal repair?

    Meniscal repair is an outpatient surgical procedure to repair a torn meniscus using minimally invasive keyhole surgery.

    Can ligament injury heal itself?

    Some ligament injuries can heal with use of medication, exercise, physiotherapy , rest and RICE treatment. Grade 1 and grade 2 ligament injuries can heal on their own but it may take time. The patient would need proper care and an orthopedic specialist’s supervision for proper and quick healing.

    Grade 3 ligament injury is a complete tear of the ligament and typically requires surgical treatment.

    The 4 major ligaments in the knee are-

    • Lateral collateral ligament (LCL)

    What to do in ligament injury?

    Standard medical treatment for knee ligament injury typically includes-

    • Rest
    • Ice pack application (to reduce swelling that occurs within hours of the injury)
    • Compression (from an knee brace or elastic bandage)
    • Elevate the affected leg
    • Prescribed pain relievers

    Proper diagnosis and examination by an orthopedic doctor is important after a ligament injury. Consult the best knee doctor in Noida at your nearest Pristyn Care clinic.

    What is the treatment for complete tear of anterior cruciate ligament?

    Complete tear of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) typically requires ACL reconstruction.

    Is knee cap for ligament injury effective?

    What is ligament repair?

    Ligament repair or reconstruction is the procedure to replace or repair a damaged ligament.

    What to do in case of a ligament injury at home?

    • Compress the knee.
    • Raise the knee on a pillow while sitting or lying down.
    • Wear a knee brace or knee cap to stabilize the knee and prevent further injury.
    • Take prescribed painkillers.

    Can an ACL tear heal on its own?

    Partial ACL tear or a sprained ACL can heal with the use of physiotherapy, RICE treatment, rest and pain medication (to manage pain). A complete ACL tear cannot heal on its own as there is no blood supply to the injured ligament. Surgical reconstruction or repair is usually required for a completely torn ACL.

    Are braces for MCL tears useful?

    A knee brace or knee cap can help to prevent sideways movement of the knee joint and further protects the MCL from instability, strain and pressure. If an MCL tear is severe, the orthopedic doctor may recommend surgery.

    Can you walk with a complete acl tear?

    It might be possible to walk with a complete ACL tear. However, the person might have a lot of pain and knee instability and a risk of further knee injuries.

    What will happen after your ACL reconstruction?

These instructions involve ample rest, avoiding sports activities for 4 to 6 months after the surgery, regularly attending the follow-up appointments, and diligently following through with the physiotherapy plan.

    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.

    What is the goal of ACL reconstruction?

    Complete ACL tear Other parts of the knee or the surrounding area such as PCL or meniscus are also injured at the same time as your ACL Knee instability Unsuccessful physiotherapy or rehabilitation program to repair the torn ACL Restricted activities and mobility because of swelling or knee pain Chronic ACL deficiency due to an untreated ACL tear or injury
