I’m not much into sports but I do hear news about some athletes like how they made it to the finals of this event or how they are suffering from injuries and what-not. Through it all, one injury I often hear about is the ACL injury.
The ACL or Anterior Cruciate Ligament is one of the main stabilizing ligaments of the knee. Since its main function is to stabilize the knee, it’s very important to take care of it. If it gets damaged, the knee could feel unstable and eventually give out. Once a person sustains an injured or torn ACL, his best option is to undergo surgery especially if the damage is severe. After the ACL reconstruction, the person would then undergo therapy and he must wear ACL braces. These braces have light-weight frame and hinges at the knee joint and are designed to reduce knee instability following an ACL injury.
An ACL brace is the sure-fire protection for ACL injuries. So if you’re an athlete or if you regularly perform strenuous activities at work and you suffer from ACL injury, it’s best to wear the brace for added support and protection.
