WHAT ARE MY TREATMENT OPTIONS?
Rest, ice, compression and elevation (RICE) are prescribed to decrease initial symptom severity. If you partially tear your ACL, nonsurgical treatment options may be prescribed:
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs)
- Physical therapy
If you completely tear your ACL, your injury may require arthroscopic ACL repair surgery. At Active Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, our Board Certified and Fellowship Trained Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Specialists are ACL injury experts who will help you recover as quickly as possible from your injury using the latest non-surgical and surgical treatment options.
How do I make an appointment with Active Orthopedics and Sports Medicine?
Please contact Active Orthopedic & Sports Medicine if you injure your knee and experience ACL tear symptoms. Delaying a diagnosis can make your injury and symptoms worse. We have conveniently located offices in Hackensack, Montclair, Emerson & Elmwood Park.
