ACL Injuries Raleigh NC
If you tear or sprain the anterior cruciate ligament, this type of knee injury is commonly referred to as an ACL injury. The ACL is one of the most important ligaments of the knee. ACL injuries are mostly associated with athletes who compete in sports such as soccer and long jump, due to the involvement of sudden stops.
However, anyone can suffer ACL injuries, so it is important to seek an assessment from Dr Kanaan if you suffer related symptoms. You may experience symptoms including:
- An audible “pop” sensation in the knee
- Significant pain that prevents further participation in activity
- Rapid swelling around the knee
- Limited mobility
- Instability when bearing weight
These symptoms do not necessarily indicate an ACL injury, but they may indicate another type of injury or illness. Dr. Kanaan will provide a comprehensive examination to determine whether you have suffered an ACL injury.
