As an expert orthopedic specialist at Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive care for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. Our practice is committed to delivering personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient's unique needs.

An anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear is a common knee injury, often occurring during sports activities that involve sudden stops, changes in direction, or direct blows to the knee. ACL tears can range from partial tears to complete ruptures and can cause significant pain, swelling, instability, and difficulty bearing weight on the affected knee. At Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of ACL tears, offering comprehensive care to promote healing and restore knee function.

When you experience an ACL tear, it can be a devastating injury that affects your ability to participate in sports or perform daily activities. Our team of orthopedic specialists begins the evaluation process with a thorough assessment of your injury, often utilizing physical examination maneuvers and imaging studies such as MRI to accurately diagnose the extent and severity of the tear.

Treatment options for ACL tears at Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists may include:

  • Conservative management: For patients with partial tears or low-demand lifestyles, conservative treatments such as physical therapy, activity modification, and bracing may be recommended to alleviate symptoms and improve knee function.
  • Surgical intervention: For patients with complete ACL tears or high-demand lifestyles, surgical reconstruction of the ACL may be necessary to restore knee stability and function. Our orthopedic surgeons specialize in minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques for ACL reconstruction, using autografts or allografts to reconstruct the torn ligament and restore knee stability.
  • Rehabilitation: Regardless of the treatment approach, we provide comprehensive rehabilitation programs focused on strengthening the muscles around the knee, improving range of motion, and enhancing joint stability to facilitate recovery and prevent future injuries.
  • Return to sport protocol: We offer specialized rehabilitation programs tailored to athletes, focusing on sport-specific training, agility drills, and neuromuscular re-education to safely return to sports activities and prevent re-injury.

Our team of experts will work with you to find the best treatment plan for your needs.

We offer everything from chiropractic care to massage therapy to acupuncture. And our state-of-the-art facilities are equipped with the latest technology to ensure you get the best possible care.
