Submitted by : Under the guidance of: Amandeep Singh(MPT 1

year) Dr. Mithilesh Kumar Roll no.:4802
 
 Anatomy
The knee joint is formed by thefemur, tibia, and patella. The ACL is one of the four mainligaments in the knee that connect the femur to the tibia.The knee is a hinge joint that is held together by the MCL,LCL, ACL and PCL.
The anterior cruciate ligament runs posteriorly and superiorly from its attachment near thefront of tibial plateau to itsfemoral attachment at the posterolateral aspect of theintercondylar notch.
 
hen the ACL is injured, the shinbone can slide forward onthe thighbone causing the knee to ³give way´.
