Anterior cruciate ligament rupture

What is the anterior cruciate ligament?

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a ligament located on the inside of the knee that joins the posterior-lateral part of the femur to the front-middle part of the tibia.

The most common mechanism of ACL rupture is an inward twist of the knee (valgus) and is usually common in physical activities.


How is a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament treated?

Improve muscle strength and control, as well as nerve control, through a combination of treatment based on manual therapyrehabilitation exercises and technology.

For this purpose, at Clínica Sohail we carry out a previous global, exhaustive and complete assessment of the musculoskeletal and nervous system, and depending on the results, we evaluate which type of treatment is the most appropriate for the patient. In a cross-cutting manner, the rehabilitation team will carry out an intervention through therapeutic exercise.

Depending on the degree of injury, and together with the application of technology such as ultrasound-guided percutaneous intratissue electrolysis (EPI), and Echoguided Percutaneous Percutaneous Neuromodulation, Shock waves, Imoove or Magnetic Resonance Therapy (MBST), we will work with a program of control exercises, global postural reeducation (RPG) and/or strength exercises.

The Hyperbaric Chamber can be a great ally in recovery, thanks to the oxygenation produced in the tissues, it reduces the recovery times of breaks, wounds, muscle injuries and bone fractures.
