Doctor insights on: Can you play volleyball with a torn acl if you use a brace or something
Yes: At age 47 I'm assuming you are playing recreational football. If you have a well-fitted functional acl brace (don-joy defiance for example)and no other intrarticular injuries (meniscus tear) then u can try to play. Test it first by doing some hard 'cutting' on it at home or your local park. If it feels like its going to "give way' then u shouldn't play and possibly consider having it reconstucted.! ...Read more
Not Recommended: Football is a contact sport. The risk of sustaining a subluxation (partial dislocation) event is high with cutting and pivoting. When this happens further damage can occur to the knee in terms of meniscal tears, cartilage damage, and tears of other ligaments. A brace won't protect you. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Maybe: Some people can do ok with activities which don't involve cutting or pivoting. If your knee is giving out after a course of rehab the acl should be addressed. Would lean toward reconstruction at 35 though. ...Read more
Yes: If you get your acl repaired with a surgery or conservatively with physical therapy if surgery is not indicated, usually the recovery after surgery is between 3 to 6 months and you can gradually start exercising. There are a lot of professional athletes that go back to the same level of athleticism 9 to 12 months after an acl repair. ...Read more
We don't know: Studies have shown that about thirty percent of people who tear their acl can function quite well without it. The vast majority of people cannot perform at a high enough level to participate in athletics after an acl tear, but there are a few who do. We think it is a combination of small anatomic differences, muscle strength and control and discipline. ...Read more
Can I still play soccer with a partially torn ACL? Do I need to have surgery to fix it or are there other ways to fix it without surgery? Thank you!
I jumped up in the air while playing basketball and I heard a pop. I can bear weight on my knee but not bend it. I don't think I have any symptoms of a torn acl or anything like that?
Incomplete tear?: If the tear is complete, forget it. If the tear is minor, sufficient rehab can be done and strength assured so that an athlete may feel confident to return to full participation. However, the risk of then suffering a complete tear would certainly be worth considering. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It's Possible: After any surgery, it takes time to heal from it. Most people with ACL repair surgeries will take 3-4 months to feel like the knee feels stable and stronger as the graft sets in. Obviously following your doctor's orders are key and when rehab starts follow it to a T. You will do just fine. If you are concerned talk to your doctor. If surgery not planned consider Regenexx Stem Cell Therapies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 17 yr old son tore his ACL and wants to play football. Ss it reasonable to play with a torn acl?
Risks worse injury: Playing with a torn ACL in sports that require cutting and rapid changes of direction is not generally recommended. The intact or reconstructed ACL allows a return to such sports, but more importantly, protects against further meniscal or cartilage damage. Your son risks further irreparable damage to his meniscii and joint cartilage if he tries to play with a torn acl. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I played soccer with a torn ACL and lateral meniscus for 3 months and didn't have any trouble. Are there any consequences that I could have later on?
Absolutely: Athletes with torn ACL's are at significantly higher risk of injuring other structures in the knee due to instability including other ligaments, meniscus tears, and cartilage damage. Your meniscus tear also puts you at higher risk for arthritis later in life. Athletes who are still playing should have ACL reconstruction surgery. You should see an orthopedic surgeon asap. ...Read more
