The Coloradoan
As fall sports such as football, volleyball and soccer get into full swing, we are seeing more folks with lower extremity injuries. The knee is one of the most frequently injured joints during fall sporting activities. The knee has a number of strong supporting ligaments, including the anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL.
