A major knee injury or torn ACL changes everything.
Rupturing a ligament in the knee, like the ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament), is not only excruciatingly painful, but emotionally heartbreaking. Most athletes require surgery, plus a year of recovery with extensive physical therapy. The mental recovery can be even worse than the physical.
Too many young athletes miss out on high school and college opportunities as a direct result of a knee injury.
Worst of all, statistics show that most people don’t return to their same level of competition, they have a very high risk of re-injury, and a majority will develop early arthritis.
