Example text

It is a veritable picture of what’s going on inside the knee, isn’t it? The answer has to do with the image properties of scar tissue. While an MRI will never display an intact ACL shortly after an acute ACL injury, chronic ACL deficiency in some cases can be more difficult to identify using this imaging technique. Over time, even a torn ACL can produce scar tissue that, in some cases, creates the appearance of a wholly intact ligament on MRI. Unfortunately, this scar tissue may not provide much in the way of ligamentous function.

This, however, is when the similarities among different patients may end. There is a huge amount of variability in the way that patients respond to an ACL tear. Naturally, this depends on the severity of the tear itself. But it also depends on the level of mental distraction, associated injuries, and the movements involved in the particular sport being played. Some athletes finish out the game or even play for weeks before experiencing the kinds of symptoms that bring 27 The ACL Solution them into the doctor’s office.

This shift can be very obviously abnormal, and it indicates that the ACL is not functional. The exception is the rare patient who is loose-jointed and thus has a natural amount of pivot shift. In this scenario, however, the knee in question can simply be compared to the patient’s other knee and examined for a greater amount of shift. The only shortcoming of these physical examinations is their requirement that the patient relax the joint being tested. This is difficult to do with a sore, swollen knee that is fresh from a recent injury, as mentioned earlier when I highlighted the importance of MRI.
