Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury can have devastating long-term impacts for young, active individuals. Despite two recommended management options with similar long-term outcomes (ACL reconstruction and postoperative rehabilitation or initial rehabilitation with optional delayed ACL reconstruction), ACL reconstruction is the most common treatment strategy in many countries and surgical rates are increasing exponentially. This webinar will draw upon current evidence to debunk a range of misconceptions related to ACL injury management options. We will address questions including... Can a ruptured ACL heal? Is surgery needed to return to pivoting sport? Is the risk of knee re-injury higher if you don't have an ACL reconstruction? Strategies for identifying individuals at risk of poor long-term outcomes after ACL injury will be presented. This webinar will provide clinicians with knowledge to inform patients about ACL injury management options to improve management decisions.
