If the symptoms are not too much, you may wait. Physiotherapy and yoga based exercises should help. Kindly contact again if no relief in 2-3 wks.

Hi Yes the MRI report says that you have a complete tear of the ACL. ACL is one of the stabilizers of the knee. Without the ACL, the knee will become unstable and the other parts of the knee will undergo more pressure/wear and tear. So it is important to get a surgery... especially at your young age. Had you been above 45-50 years of age, surgery may not have been compulsory. But right now, it is very essential to get it done. If you still don't want surgery, you will need to follow a few precautions to ensure that the knee does not undergo more wear and tear. These are: *Avoid sitting/sleeping on the floor. *Avoid using stairs as much as possible. Use a lift whenever you can. *Avoid using an Indian Toilet. Use a Western style toilet or a foldable toilet chair. *Do the exercise shown in the video below: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=bE3xkOIekiU&t=3s Lastly, PRP treatment will not help in your case because the ACL is torn completely. So don't waate your time and money over it.
Next Steps
Please contact an Orthopaedic surgeon to get your surgery done.

Hello, complete ACL tear is a mechanical issue. This is unlikely to heal with any injection or medicine. The current consensus is that PRP wont achieve much in ACL tears. Regarding surgery, it is a standard procedure now with very good results. So commonly done now a days that we have people who only do these surgeries. But it is advisable to wait for around 3 weeks before going for a surgery to allow other structures (injured in your MRI report) to heal. You dont need to be afraid of anything. I understand that it might be an alien concept to you and that's why the fear. But trust me it is a common surgical procedure with good results and minimal complications. Hope this helps

The best option in your case will be to undergo surgery.. Since it is complete tear of ACL, it won't heal by itself..  All the supportive treatments may help temporarily but will not be a permanent solution.
Next Steps
Surgery for ACL reconstruction is done by Arthroscopy with very small incisions and you will be able to start walking comfortably very soon. Don't worry too much. You should go ahead with surgery..
