The anterior crucial ligament (ACL) is a key component of overall knee stability and prevents excessive motion of the knee joint while the legs are in motion. ACL tears are typically sports related, but may also occur as a result of a motor vehicle collision, a fall, rough play, or a work-related injury. When injury occurs, most patients might feel a “pop” and then feel as if the knee has simply given out from under them.
