What is it & what does it do? The Anterior Cruciate Ligament

The knee has 4 main LIGAMENTS that stabilise the knee.

The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is one of the two ‘crossing’ ligaments within the knee. It attaches to the back of the thigh bone and the shin bone at the front and prevents excessive forward movement of the shin on the thigh bone. It also controls the knee during twisting or rotational movements.

This video looks at the positioning and the role of the ACL within the knee.
