High School Football Injury Evaluation

High School Football

Football season is exciting, but it can result in various debilitating injuries. Among the most prominent are ACL injuries. The ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) crosses from the back of the femur to the front of the tibia. During a game of football, the knee is often twisted beyond its usual range of motion. This makes the ACL highly susceptible to injury.  A complete tear of the ACL is like rope fibers coming apart. A partial tear can also occur. Other parts of the knee may be injured at the same time that you injure the ACL. To learn more about ACL repair, click here.

On Saturdays from 9-10 am starting in August, we are holding a free sports clinic and injury evaluation for school athletes at our Schertz location.
