An ACL injury is the tearing of the anterior cruciate ligament, an important ligament in your knee which provides stability during movements that involve sudden stops, rapid changes in direction, and jumps. ACL injuries are common among athletes and people who partake in sport such as football, running and skiing, so it is important to protect the knee ligament where possible. At PhysioRoom, we have a wide range of knee brace supports to help both ACL injuries, and other ligament damage or serious injuries.

Knee Braces for ACL Rehab

A hinged knee brace is the best option for ACL injury recovery. The hinge allows flexion and extension to stabilise the joint and prevent hyper-extension and further injury. Removable pins allow you to set the hinge, limiting the knee's range of movement and speeding up recovery during the rehabilitation period. 

Reduce Strain on the ACL

Knee braces with spring mechanisms cushion the movement as the knee straightens. This dampens stress on the knee during the most at-risk range of motion, reduces strain on the ACL, and eliminates the rigid shock of the knee locking out. It provides protection through the full range of knee motion (0-140 degrees). In addition, simple adjustment to the hinge allows a choice of three restricted ranges of motion so you can control the level of movement required for your injury.

Additionally, braces with smaller and less bulky hinges can still provide optimal support and protection for unstable, injured or recovering knees, during sports or daily activities. An open patella knee support ensures proper patella alignment and stabilization without compromising on motion and range of movement.

ACL Injuries in Sport

Serious ligament injuries are becoming extremely common in both high level, and amateur sports. The number of players on the Premier League injury table that are suffering with an ACL injury is ever-increasing, so it is important to know how to treat and recover from such an injury. 

An ACL knee brace provides advanced protection, and are most commonly built with adjustable straps and built-in supports to provide the ultimate level of protection. They work to reduce pain, and prevent further damage or injury while you are in the healing stage.

Prevent Further Damage

Selecting the right knee brace for ACL injury is a crucial stage of the recovery phase. Braces that provide stability to the knee during movement are a good option, as they help reduce the risk of further injury. However, the most important thing to consider when deciding on an ACL knee support is the fit and comfort, as a poorly fitting brace can cause discomfort and may not offer the right support. 

You should always consult a doctor, healthcare professional, or physiotherapist before deciding on the best knee brace for you and your specific injury, but once you have an idea of which size and support you need, you can trust PhysioRoom to provide the right acl brace for you. 

Returning to Activity After ACL Injury

It is important not to rush your recovery, especially with an injury as serious as an ACL tear. When you do eventually start to move again, this should be gradual with lots of care taken. Returning to activity too quickly can cause further damage to the ligament, so it is important to take it slow and ensure you are ready.

A knee brace for walking is a great option for when you are looking to slowly build up your range of movement and activity again. Wearing this for exercises aimed at strengthening the muscles around the knee, improving flexibility, and increasing stability will provide great support and help you return to full fitness safely.
