Braces for ACL Tears
The ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) stabilizes and protects the ligament of the knee. With one sudden stop, sharp turn, jump or fall in sports, athletes may hear a “pop” or hyperextension of the knee, causing the ACL to tear and leaving athletes in a great deal of pain. Most ACL tears occur from non contact in basketball, football, soccer, skiing and other agility-like sports. While the recovery time may take 12 to 18 months to fully heal, athletes can use protective braces to speed up recovery and get back to their sport with the ultimate support and confidence they need to prevent re-injury. Whether you’re looking for post-surgery stabilization or compression sleeves, DonJoy Performance braces offer maximum protection.
