Example text

Other sports, such as handball, volleyball, gymnastics, skiing, and tennis, also leave the knee vulnerable to ACL tears for the same reasons. If you’ve had previous knee issues, or you want to protect your child from tearing her ACL, sports such as swimming, golf, baseball, and ice hockey offer you a safer athletic arena. In these sports, the non-contact “at-risk” athletic moves with a planted foot either do not occur, or do so much less frequently. It is virtually impossible to tear one’s ACL while swimming or golfing and relatively uncommon to do so while playing baseball or ice hockey.

Filled with blood and biochemical mediators of inflammation and healing, the environment is highly responsive to further trauma. In a stiff, painful and swollen knee, the response can come in the form of massive scarring that’s not limited to the injured ligament, what we call a “global” response.

In fact, I have found that patients who have the surgery later are often among my happiest patients. Unlike an ACL patient who has surgery soon after the injury and returns to all sports following the operation, as expected, these people have had their knee give way repeatedly. They are then overjoyed to have that problem go away.
