Knee injuries can occur during sports such as skiing, tennis, football, netball and rugby. ACL injuries are one of the most common types of knee injuries, accounting for around 40% of all sporting injuries
The ACL is one of the four main ligaments within the knee that connect the femur to the tibia. The ACL runs diagonally in the middle of the knee, preventing the tibia from sliding out in front of the femur, as well as providing rotational stability to the knee.
