Ortho consult: Acl tears are common. People who manage poorly with a torn acl are younger, active people particularly those involved in pivoting or contact sports. Initial treatment is to decrease swelling and regain motion. After that, a discussion with an ortho surgeon is important to review non-surg vs surg options.
