ACL Tears and Treatments
July 13, 2018
An ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) tear can be a devastating injury to an athlete or to anyone else who lives an active lifestyle. Dr. Andrew Razzano offers successful treatment options for ACL tears as well as other types of damage to the knee. Contact our Dayton office for an appointment so you can get back to your activities sooner.
The anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL, runs along the middle of the knee and prevents the shin bone from shifting forward causing instability to the knee joint. This is sometimes referred to as a “blown” knee. If the ligament receives extensive damage, the odds are high that other parts of the knee may have also been injured.
Treatment options may include bracing and physical therapy as well as surgical reconstruction of the damaged ligament.
