Knee Braces for ACL Tear
An anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL, injury is a tear in one of the knee ligaments that joins the upper leg bone with the lower leg bone. The ACL keeps the knee stable and can be injured if your knee joint is bent backward, twisted, or bent side to side. An ACL injury often occurs during sports and the injury can happen when your foot is firmly planted on the ground and a sudden force hits your knee while your leg is straight or slightly bent. This can happen when you are changing direction rapidly, slowing down when running, or landing from a jump. This type of injury is common in soccer, skiing, football, and other sports with lots of stop-and-go movements, jumping, or weaving. Our knee braces can help prevent injury to the Anterior Cruciate Ligament or help support your knee after an ACL tear or injury.
