Thank you for the question.

ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) is a connective tissue located in the middle of the knee, and serves to connect the femur bone with the tibia, thus helping to stabilize the knee joint. Injuries to ACL can occur due to accidents, especially accidents when exercising. This condition can make sufferers feel great pain around their knees, accompanied by swelling, difficulty moving, unstable sensation in the knee, also feels the sensation of "popping" around the knee which is very disturbing activity.


ACL injuries, especially until they are interrupted, if not treated properly, not only limit your activities going forward, but can also increase your risk of developing knee osteoarthritis. Without surgery, this condition will take much longer to heal.


Therefore, it is better for you to consult further with your doctor or orthopedic doctor regarding the proper treatment done according to your condition, yes. The doctor who examines you, with his competence and experience, certainly understands what is the best step that needs to be done. In the meantime, you can relieve complaints that arise due to ACL injuries by increasing the rest, compressing with an ice cube of your knee that has been injured, elevate if your knee is swollen, take paracetamol when pain is annoying, and do not carelessly massage or consume other drugs without doctor's advice.
