ACL Tear

acl tear

The anterior cruciate ligament is one of two, thick internal ligaments (the other is the posterior cruciate ligament- PCL) that stabilize your knee internally, limiting forward and rearward movement of the femur relative to the tibia.

A strong shearing force can cause it to tear, or snap in half altogether.  Afterwards, there will be pain and noticeable knee instability.
