I had a ACL reconstruction surgery 3 years ago. Recently while exercising it broke again. Should i go for an ACL reconstruction surgery again?
Is there any chance that i may hurt my other ligaments in future?

Avoid sitting Cross legged.
Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain.
Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day.
Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day.
Sports Taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area
Contrast Fomentation (Hot and Cold).
operation or not depends on the stability of the joint kindly visit a qualified, experienced and registered physiotherapist nearby to get ur joint stability checked. know us more at www.physiotherapistdelhi.in
Dear friend it is rare to have acl re tear .but is not impossible. Any pivoting or twisting injury can lead to rotatory knee strain and resultant knee ligament tear.if somebody has got retear then you should not wait for further damage to menisci and cartilage inside Knee. You can become alright with resurgery but your rehabilitation should be prolonged.wish you recovery soon. Regards dr pankaj agrawal

ACL ligament provides stability to the knee joint....weather you opt for surgery or No...you have to strengthn your knee flexor and extesor muscles....you should straight away consult an Arthroscopic orthopaedic surgeon (if the one who previously operated on you is there then thats best)
For the time being wear the knee brace (the onc which u might have) and stop putting undue load/weight on the affected knee.
Regards & Take care.
Acl function is important for stability of knee joint so if you do not address instability by quadriceps muscle strengthening then yes there is chance you may injure your knee further.So strengthen your quads
muscle rigoursily so that it can reduce instability.
Hi there ! Yes you require another reconstruction! And it does affect other tissues too! So to minimise the affect of injury please strengthen your quadriceps as well as hamstrings..thanks
