It’s one of the most dreaded sounds an athlete can hear - a pop in the knee that indicates something has just gone seriously wrong.
A worst-case scenario is a torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament), which can sideline an athlete for a season and even end their career.
An ACL tear can injure more than the knee. It can fill even young athletes with the fear that they will not be able to play sports again.
