Specializes in Orthopedic Surgery

Sounds like an anterior cruciate ligament tear. You should see an orthopedic surgeon to discuss options. We are amidst an epidemic of female ACL tears especially among the young soccer players. This problem is a source of ongoing research with the current focus on pre-injury movement screening and corrective exercise for neuromuscular imbalances that seem to be common among female athletes.
