A Google search on "ACL tears" show a lot of results that are, at best, intimidating to read through. It's been a while since I dove into the latest knee injury research, but I find myself going back into it again recently.
ACL tears have a stigma to be "career-ending". In the case of martial artists, this can range from retirement from competition, or a complete discontinuation of practice. I'll share my personal feelings about this toward the end, but I realize that life happens, and it's perfectly OK to want a change unapologetically.
Here are some ACL tear statistics in hope of providing educational value and a quick reference. I hope you find this helpful, either for yourself or in supporting your student through the rehab process.
