What can we do to help you?

A doctor will examine the knee joint to determine if you have an ACL injury, or another type of knee injury. In some cases, imaging studies may be ordered.

Depending on the severity of the ACL injury and your usual activity level, you will likely be referred to see a physiotherapist who may prescribe an appropriate knee brace. If you have a complete ACL tear, you will likely be referred to see an orthopaedic surgeon. Surgery involves either repairing or reconstructing the ACL.

Physiotherapy is important for individuals scheduled for surgery as it helps to restore normal motion, strengthen the muscles around the knee and reduces the swelling in preparation for surgery. This will help you to have the best function and recovery possible following the surgery.
