The ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) is a broad thick band which stops the tibia sliding forwards in relation to the femur.
It starts from the bottom of the femur, and passes down and forwards to attach to the top of the tibia.
As the ACL is situated inside of the joint capsule, when you rupture your ACL it causes bleeding. This is why your knee quickly swells after the rupture.
Physiotherapy treatment is very important as they are designed to help you regain your full range of movement and strengthen the muscles around your knee.
