Immobilization: Initially one is treated non operatively with immobilization with velcro-type knee immobilizer. Graded range of motion then physical therapy.

Torn or sprained?: It depends on if it was fully torn or sprained. If fully torn, may need arthroscopic acl reconstruction (surgery via 'scope'). If sprained, can rehab with physical therapy and use a knee brace.
