ACL deficiency : Although some patients do well, this is rare. Without acl reconstruction you can expect instability particularly with decending stairs or turning quickly from side to side. Long term acl deficiency ultimately will end up with severe osteoarthritis in 15-20 years. In the interim, meniscus tears (cartilage"shock absorbers" in the knee) are more likely. ...Read more

Hi there, I have ruptured my ACL and have a tear in my meniscus. I was wondering should my leg stiffen right up between rehab exercises? Thanks

Listen to your body: When muscles become stiff following exercise they usually are too stressed. The injury may be putting more of a strain on muscles not previously used . Topical magnesium oil on stiff muscles can help them relax. Doing shorter sessions can help. Learn the routines taught in rehab and do 10 minutes 4-6 times a day every day to rebuild muscles. Avoid inflammatory foods. ...Read more

The acl is a major knee stabalizer, and can provide security to your knee that may prevent further damage to nearby tendons, ligaments, muscles, articular cartilage, meniscus, & bones when compared to a "loose knee". ...Read more
