Sponsored content: Dealing with ACL damage

The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is one of the main stabilising ligaments of the knee joint.

With that in mind, it is often one of the most commonly injured ligaments during sport.

The injury can be quite specific, often involving twisting with the foot planted.

This type of injury is often seen within football, netball, skiing and rugby.

Signs you may have damaged your ACL:

1) Immediate swelling at time of injury

2) Struggling to weight bear through the affected side

3) Sensations of instability or giving way
