The human knee is made up of four main ligaments, one of which is the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). The ACL is responsible for maintaining the overall stability of the knee. The ACL is vital for normal day to day movement and also for human functioning, as it allows the knee to pivot, rotate and change direction. In the event that the ACL is torn or otherwise significantly damaged, the tibia, which is also known as the shin bone, moves forward under the femur, which is also known as the thigh bone. This effectively causes the knee to give out and the consequences can be quite serious. In the event that a Massachusetts resident suffers a knee injury, or more specifically a torn or partially torn ACL, it can severely affect the person’s mobility and make it very difficult for the individual to walk, get around and perform ordinary tasks.

Massachusetts knee injuries are relatively common. Such injuries can take place in a Massachusetts car accident if the knee collides with the dash of the car or hits something else. The knee may also be injured if there is a sudden change in pressure or impact to the knee, such as may occur in Massachusetts slip and fall accidents, Massachusetts worksite accidents, Massachusetts motorcycle accidents, Massachusetts bike accidents and Massachusetts pedestrian accidents. Additionally, torn or partially torn ACLs can be caused by sports that do not necessarily involve contact, but may require the athlete to quickly change directions. Statistics show that women are at a greater risk of tearing their ACL than are men.

When the ACL is torn, the knee may give out or even create an audible popping sound. Swelling, tenderness and pain are other indications of a Massachusetts knee injury. A torn ACL can take weeks to diagnose because of the knee’s swelling. The injured Massachusetts resident may choose to have surgery performed on the knee if they are, in fact, diagnosed with a torn or partially torn ACL. During surgery, strips of the ligament on the knee cap are used to reconstruct and replace the ACL.

Children who undergo surgery for a torn ACL may experience more severe consequences than adults may sustain. Children may suffer stunted growth or their legs may grow unevenly. Surgery is not always mandatory; however, it is critical for those who want to continue to have an active lifestyle or for individuals who perform manual labor for work. In addition, Massachusetts residents who do not opt for surgery for a torn or partially torn ACL risk repeated knee injuries and arthritis as they age.

Oftentimes, it takes seven months to a year to fully recover from ACL surgery. During this time, some Massachusetts physicians suggest using a brace to help stabilize the affected area. Other Massachusetts physicians recommend using a machine that continuously moves the knee joint throughout the healing period. The recovery period usually requires a substantial amount of time away from work, which can put a significant strain on personal finances. This time off from your job can cause a great deal of financial stress, in addition to the Massachusetts resident’s physical pain.
