Torn ACL Symptons
80% of athletes have torn their ACL without any physical contact from another athlete. If you feel that you are you suffering from a torn ACL there are a couple prominent symptoms you can mentally check off to verify.
A torn ACL normally makes an extremely loud ‘POP’ at moment of injury, but in the rare case the noise isn’t heard, the person feels a definite ‘shift’ in from the joint. The injured area also swells significantly and rapidly within moments. Lastly, the knee joint becomes quite unstable, giving out at even the simplest movements.
