ACL Injury Treatment – Find a Doctor You Can Trust

If you need to undergo ACL injury treatment, it is crucial to find a doctor that you trust.

If your family doctor is willing and able to treat you, trust will most likely not be an issue.

However, if your regular doctor thinks you should see a specialist for your injury, you might be a little uncertain as to how to find another doctor that you can trust.

There is no question that choosing a doctor can be a daunting decision.

Fortunately, there are some ways you can find a reliable doctor that you can trust to supervise your treatment.

One of the best ways to find a trustworthy doctor is to ask for recommendations from your friend.

This can be especially beneficial if you have friends who have previously received ACL injury treatment.

Your friends are likely to be honest with you since they care about your safety and well-being.

There is an added advantage of asking your friends for advice about which doctor you should see as well.

Even if they do not know of any doctors that specialize in sports medicine or knee injuries, they can help you look for information, and this could save you some time.

The internet is another way to learn about doctors who provide ACL injury treatment.

ACL Injury Treatment – Why You Need To See A Specialist

More and more doctors’ offices are getting their own websites so potential patients can learn about their practice at their own convenience.

This also undoubtedly cuts down on phone calls from people who are seeking information.

A website for the doctor’s office should have information about any fields they may specialize in, as well as the specific services they offer.

This is also a quick and easy way to find contact information for the doctor you choose.

However, you should keep in mind that not all doctors’ offices have a website.

Finally, if your doctor thinks you should see a specialist, you can ask them for a recommendation.

It is likely that your family doctor knows another doctor who specializes in sports medicine or is skilled in treating ACL injuries.

This might prove to be the best way to choose a doctor to treat your knee, especially if your insurance company requires a referral before you see a specialist.

The important thing is to remember to choose your doctor with care.

An ACL injury is a serious matter, and you want to see the doctor who can provide the most help.

    I’m 17 years old, female and yesterday i think i injured my ACL skiing. I landed a jump funny and my left knee hyperextended, and i felt a sort of popping sensation. i was able to get up and ski the rest of the (blue) run down keeping the weight on my other leg. I got to the bottom, took my skis off and then couldnt put pressure on my injured leg enough to put my ski back on. I haven’t noticed any major swelling, thought it’s a little bit bigger than my other knee, nor is there much bruising. I can put a bit of pressure on it but can’t straighten it with my foot on the floor, yesterday i could limp but my knee would often buckle-out and hurt. It’s more stiff today so i’m just hopping around! I’m in Switzerland but home to the UK tomorrow so was just going to wait until then to get it checked out. I play netball often and ski every year. Just looking for a rough idea of what it is, how bad it is and my options for recovery!??

    Hi Sir,
    I met an accident on 13th May. My OS inspected MRI report and he told that my ACL was torn completely and meniscus was partially broken.
    Surgery was performed on 15th June. Post-Op, I wasn’t allowed to bend knee and was told to do 4 exercises(knee press, ankle press, lifting leg and sideways). On 30th June my stitches were removed.
    From July 3rd I was allowed to bend knee and I was put on CPM. However, I am still not allowed to put full body weight. OS has advised to put 50 % weight only. I am using walker to move. OS has given 30th July as the date to put full weight.

    What worries me is the experience of other people which I have read on blogs and other sites. Almost everyone of them started walking without walker or any support 2 weeks post-op.

    Its been 4 weeks after the surgery. I am able to extend my leg and flexion is 100. Is there any thing that I should worry about.

    Thank you.

    I have a high grade ACL tear. Does this mean complete tear? I can’t imagine that it does because I have zero instability. My knee does not “give out” at all. I can run and walk, get up and down with no problem. I am still practicing with my team. The only thing that hurts, and bad, is if I cut really hard to the left or make sudden changes in direction at a high rate of speed. Also if I twist it hard or fall on it in a certain way it will really hurt. Falling hard straight down does not bother it, but if I fall with it bent all the way down then it’s a nightmare.

    I play roller derby and am not ready to stop. Do you think surgery is necessary?
