The knee is the largest joint in the body and is vital to mobility. Its stability relies on the delicate ligaments surrounding it. Due to the tremendous forces acting on the knee, injuries to these ligaments are common. Other common knee injuries are cartilage damage and dislocation of the knee cap. While each of these injuries are treatable with our products, it is essential to properly identify your specific injury, in consult with a health care professional, before selecting the best solution for you.Common Knee injury areas:
|The Anterior Cruciate Ligament or ACL, passes through the middle of the knee joint, and forms a "cross" with the Posterior Cruciate Ligament. |
The primary function of the ACL ligament is to prevent the tibia from sliding forward when placed under stress - this phenomenon is known as anterior translation of the tibia.
The ACL also helps in preventing hyperextension of the knee, a common result of a tear in the ACL.
