IT Band Syndrome and Other Knee Pain

Do You Have These Symptoms of ACL?

If your knee pain is moderate to severe, and you got it while jumping, twisting, or making other rapid movements that put a strain on your knee, it's very likely you could have an anterior cruciate ligament injury. 

Not sure if you or a loved one have an ACL injury? Here are some of the signs:

    • A "pop" or "popping" sound and/or sensation in the affected knee
    • The knee feels weak, unstable, or otherwise unable to support the weight it usually supports, sometimes referred to as a "trick knee"
    • The range of motion is severely reduced
    • Severe pain after an accident
    • Swelling after an injury

What Causes Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries?

ACL injuries usually occur when the knee is twisted out of its normal range of motion. This can happen from a quick turn or from jumping and then landing at a hard or awkward angle. ACL can also be caused by hyperextension or by sudden stops in movement. In nearly all cases, it is associated with rapid movement in a sport or other activity.
