Cure of teared ACL other than surgery
I used to play soccer earlier and at that time there are sudden locking and unlocking of my knee about 8 times in a span of three years. I had taken rest, done excercises but nothing happen well. Now my seniors told me that my ACL is tear. I went to a physiotherapist she told me that my quadriceps muscles are weak. But now i feel that my seniors are right. There is now very minute pain around my knees. I dont want to go for surgery and also i dont want to play further. I dont for any MRI.
How can i avoid surgery? Is it neccessary to go for a surgery? Can physiotherapists cure the teared ACL? If surgery is important how can i buy more time because this time my studies are going are and i dont have time to go for surgery.
PLEASE HELP ME!
