What are the treatment option for ACL tear?
Hello, my friend is suffering from ACL tear. He plays a lot. But he is in bed rest now. What are the treatment option for ACL tear? Please suggest.
@nilabjo Nonsurgical treatment such as a brace to protect from instability and physical therapy to strengthen the surrounding ligaments to provide greater stability.
Surgical reconstruction of the ACL to restore the internal structures of the knee to enable maximal stability. Your choice of treatment will depend on such factors as your age, your activity level, and the severity of your injury. You should also talk to your doctor about any preferences and concerns you may have. Patients usually choose reconstruction if they want to continue their sport or other activity, or if they are younger and want to prevent or prolong the time until they develop arthritis in the area. An older adult who just wants to walk and work out on a treadmill may choose to avoid surgery.
Dear Nilabjo, Due to advanced technique the Arthroscopic ACL reconstruction can get you back on track if you are in Sports. There are various other modalities available for those who are unfit for surgery or wish to change their lifestyle. Better consult an expert and take an opinion. Thanks
