Abstract

Most athletes with damaged ACLs returned to the field within the same season after conservative treatment. However, conscious performance was only about 60%. It is possible that knees giving way caused secondary meniscus and joint cartilage damage. Therefore, conservative treatment of individuals with ACL injuries should be considered carefully.
