There are many ways to treat an ACL sprain

An ACL sprain has the potential to keep you off your feet for an extended period of time, as bearing weight alone can be a challenge.

Fortunately, there are many ways to treat an ACL sprain, all of which you can discuss with your medical team. Some of your options include:

  • Medication: This alone is not typically enough, but the right medication can help reduce pain and swelling. If over-the-counter medication doesn't work, your doctor may prescribe something stronger.
  • Physical therapy: After you've given your knee time to rest, physical therapy is typically required to get it back to full strength. And not only does therapy strengthen your knee, but it also improves your range of motion.
  • Surgery: This is not typically required to treat an ACL sprain, but it could come into play depending on the pain and impact on your life. In most cases, surgery is only required for an ACL tear.

If you have any reason to suspect an ACL sprain (or worse), it's critical to stop what you are doing and seek immediate medical attention. Continuing with your activity increases the risk of a tear, which typically requires more advanced treatment.

If you suffered an ACL sprain at work, report the injury to your employer, and share your treatment schedule with them. For example, your doctor may suggest that you take several weeks (or longer) away from your job while you recover.

In this case, filing a claim for workers' compensation benefits is something to consider, as you'll want to seek compensation for the time you're out of work.
