Torn ACL Treatment from Orthopedic Specialists in the Quad Cities
If you require treatment for a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), trust ORA Orthopedics. Our team of experienced surgeons, nurses and physical therapists offers patient-focused care and innovative treatments to help people of all ages return to the activities they enjoy following injuries such as ACL tears. If you live in Bettendorf, IA, Davenport, IA, Moline, IL, or any other community in the Quad Cities, we encourage you to choose ORA for the highly advanced and individualized orthopedic care you deserve.
The ACL is one of four major ligaments that joins and stabilizes the bones of the knee joint. ACL tears, which are among the most common musculoskeletal injuries, may occur after abruptly coming to a stop and changing direction, pivoting, landing awkwardly from a jump, or taking a direct blow to the knee. Anyone can experience a partially or completely torn ACL, but athletes are particularly vulnerable to this injury.
At ORA Orthopedics – the largest and most esteemed orthopedic practice in the Quad Cities – our treatment begins with how we treat you. Our diverse team of sports medicine doctors offers the greatest choices in care to patients who require torn ACL treatment. We take a conservative approach to ACL injuries that focus on reducing symptoms and promoting healing with non-surgical therapies, such as physical therapy and bracing. However, in many instances, surgery can provide the best chance for a full recovery. ORA’s experienced sports medicine orthopedic surgeons practice the latest advances in arthroscopic ACL repair procedures to minimize incision lengths, streamline recovery and help patients safely return to the activities they enjoy.
According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS), anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, usually related to sports, have an incidence of approximately 252,000 annually, with women two to eight times more likely to have an ACL injury vs. men. ORA’s Dr. Ryan Dunlay explains this in greater detail in this “Doc Talks” podcast with Newstalk 1420’s Dan Kennedy:
