Play Volleyball Acl Brace
What is the definition of full thickness tear to the acl mean? Surgery or No surgery? Im about to be a senior in high school and I play volleyball and run track. If not surgery what's the best thing to do?
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

I took a rest from sports activites these past 2 month can I play sports activites awhile wearing acl brace?
Varies: You can try it, but you need to understand that if you have an ACL deficient knee and play sports, there is a fairly high risk you can damage other parts if your knee such as a meniscus. Con general, patients who are low demand and don't play sports do better with an ACL deficient knee than those that want to stay active. The braces don't do a lot to change that in my opinion. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is it safe to go back to soccer after ACL reconstruction? What type of brace will i need? Would you recommend going back to play soccer and run track?
Yes,: In most cases people can return to sports (including soccer & track) following an acl reconstruction, especially if it is the first time you've had a tear. However, return to play comes after months of rehab, and usually includes bracing. Your surgeon can help you decide which brace is best for your specific needs (may be custom fit bracing).

Is a brace necessary for sports after ACL surgery? I am an athlete and am having ACL replacement surgery so that i can continue to be active. Will i need to use a brace to support my knee for the rest of my life when playing sports?
Hello: Strictly : Hello: strictly speaking you do not need to wear a brace after acl surgery. Some patients like the supportive feel of an acl brace during rehab. In some instances and some sports, a brace may help protect against collision-related reinjuries. I do believe there is no strongly overwhelming evidence to mandate a brace or to avoid a brace, so i discuss the above with the patient and help them decide. I generally advise those who get a brace to use it for the first year back to sports, unless they do some higher-collision-risk sports infrequently (for example, skiing), then i would have no problem with their wearing the brace a couple times a year for those occasions for several years. I would have problems with patients who feel they "must" have a brace: then i would want to rule out residual instability, and if that is ruled out, work with those patients to make sure they are confident on their feet. After all, the acl reconstruction should provide stability! i hope this helps! sincerely, jim hsu, md seattle, wa. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My daughter (15) sublated her patella at a volleyball tourney. she passed the Lachman test and others 4x including right after injury by tourney trainer. Now 8 weeks later her doctor says she tore her acl and ordered a MR. My Q. Is can she play with ?
No!: Unfortunately trainers are not always skilled enough to determine an accurate diagnosis. If she tore her acl as confirmed by an orthopedic surgeon and MRI, she should not return to cutting, jumping or twisting sports until after surgery or she will cause other injuries to the knee that can have long term repercussions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
