ACL Injuries


When it comes to sports injuries, it is hard to fathom any having as many after effects as an ACL Injury. Not only are there physical challenges to overcome, but mental and emotional challenges an athlete must deal with as well. In our Atlantic Sports Health Medicine Series this month, Dr. Damian Martins of Atlantic Sports Health and Bill Parisi take on this topic head on. They discuss exactly what the ACL is and does in terms of function, and also why this can be such a devastating injury to an athlete on the physical, mental and emotional front.
