“What Happens When the ACL Tears?” – from elarasystems.com

The anterior cruciate ligament, or “ACL” is a commonly injured area of the knee in soccer, as well as in many other sports.

We were recently contacted by Elara Systems Inc., a full-service design studio based out of California that works with medical and performance specialists.  They have sent us  a recently created a new animation showing the process of an ACL tear. Given that this is one of the most common injuries in soccer and almost always forces a player out for extended recovery times, I thought it would make for an interesting post in our blog.  Below is a link to the video from the http://www.elarasystems.com website:
