How an ACL reconstruction from your orthopaedic surgeons in West Covina, CA, can help your knees
Your knees are important because they help to support your body weight, and help you have the flexibility, mobility, and stability you need to walk around.
One of the main ligaments supporting and stabilizing your knee is called the Anterior Cruciate Ligament, or ACL. If you damage this ligament, your knee will feel unstable, and you may need orthopaedic surgery to reconstruct the ligament.
The orthopaedic surgeons at Samimi Orthopaedic Group offer a wide range of orthopaedic services, including ACL reconstructive surgery to help your knees. They have two convenient office locations in West Covina, and Brentwood, CA, to help you.
Your ACL can tear from a sports accident like skiing, tennis, soccer, or other sports where you have rapid sideways movements.
There are various treatments for a torn ACL, and they vary in effectiveness, depending on the degree of the tear. Physical therapy is often recommended, but without surgery, your knee may still feel unstable. It can be difficult to walk, and you are at higher risk of injuring your knee again.
Surgical ACL reconstruction offers several benefits which often make it the treatment of choice. An ACL reconstruction can:
- Stabilize your knee
- Increase range-of-motion of your knee
- Increase knee mobility and flexibility
- Make it easier to walk, stand, or run
Having an ACL reconstruction can give you your life back by restoring your confidence to do the things you love.
