The anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments ensure stability in the knee and prevent forward movement (translation) in the knee joint. With a front cruciate ligament rupture, the lower leg can move forward with respect to the upper leg. In this way there is play on the knee joint. In the case of an injury of the anterior cruciate ligament, the knee becomes unstable and forces from outside are no longer properly absorbed.
A front cruciate ligament rupture is often caused by an acute (sports) trauma. Think of injuries caused by basketball , football , volleyball , rugby , skiing or simply after a fall with the bike. It is possible that the lower leg, with respect to the upper leg, slides too far forward or makes a spinning movement causing the knee ligament to stretch and tear.
If the cruciate ligament has been torn far or torn off completely, surgery will have to be done. If the cruciate ligament is partially torn, it can be sufficient to strengthen the surrounding muscles by training. An unstable feeling in the knee joint can still be present. A knee brace helps to absorb these forces and offers more stability and security during all kinds of activities. Various options for a good knee brace with anterior cruciate ligament (VKB) injuries are shown below.
A torn cruciate ligament, where surgery is not applicable? Then you might be looking for a brace that can provide the most stability for the knee joint? Then the next two braces may be the ideal solution. The braces are provided with hinges, without hindering the freedom of movement.
