THE function of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is to
provide stability to the knee and minimize stress across the knee joint. It restrains excessive forward movement of the tibia in relation to the femur. It also limits rotational
movements of the knee. A hard twist or excessive pressure on the ACL can tear or rupture the ligament, resulting in high levels of short-term disability and extensive rehabilitation. The cost of treatment & rehabilitation of an ACL injured person is also phenomenal.
