    The ACL - Part 2

    You may have noticed that I have used the terms “ACL rupture” and “ACL injury” interchangeably. That is because the vast majority of the time, ACL’s either rupture or don’t.

When treating an ACL injury, whether partially or completely torn, it's important to understand that the medical community believes the ACL has essentially no self-healing capacity.
