"ACL injury is now being treated with regenerative medicine at he center for regenerative medicine." According to A.J. Farshchian MD an orthopedic regenerative practitioner at the center for regenerative medicine.
There are four ligaments holding the knee in its place, one at each side (collateral ligaments) and two crossing over in the middle (Cruciates). The Cruciate ligaments stop the bones sliding forwards and backwards. Typically ACL gets injured through twisting the knee by a forceful motion. Pain and swelling usually are the cardinal manifestations of the tear. The best way to diagnose is doing an MRI. Also the Lachman Test (see above picture) which can be done during physical exam by which, the examiner Bends the knee to about 30 degrees. Then, stabilizing the femur with one hand, placing the other hand behind the proximal tibia (shin bone) at the level of the joint line and then pulling the Tibia forward, noting degree of anterior Tibial displacement, and looking for instability, can help while diagnosing the ACL tear.
