The anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL, is one of four major ligaments in the knee. One of the most common knee injuries is a torn ACL, which can result from attempting to rotate the knee while the foot is planted. In some cases, the tear is a result of an impact, but an athlete can also tear the ACL without impact from another player.
Because an intact ACL is required to provide stability in the knee, surgery is typically required in the event of a tear. Although every athlete's injury experience is different, both physically and emotionally, there are some common processes that everybody goes through after ACL surgery.
