• What Are Some Common Causes of Torn ACLs?

    A torn ACL is a common sports injury that is suffered by athletes in a wide range of sports. Part of the typical recovery plan for torn ACLs is usually physical therapy that helps athletes recover their strength and rebuild the muscles that support their knees. There are a number of different things that can cause torn ACLs. Here is a look at some of the most common causes.

    ACL injuries usually occur during the course of athletic activity in which pressure is put on the knee. This includes activities that require pivoting, those that require stopping and quickly changing direction, and those that require stopping suddenly. ACL tears can also occur after a direct blow to the knee.

    The physical therapists at Manhattan Total Health can help you strengthen your core and leg muscles to recover from ACL tears and prevent the risk of future injuries. To make an appointment with a sports medicine provider in New York, NY, call (888) 614-9257.
