Playing Sports with ACL Tear

by Susan
(Lawrenceburg, In )

My 17 year old daughter who is an All State Keeper was playing a fun game with the high school boys. She ended up with a complete tear of the ACL, Grade I sprain injury of the medial collateral ligament, bone bruise posteromedial tibial plateau but no definite meniscal tear.

She is telling me she can play her senior soccer season and hold on surgery with a brace. Her doctor has said players have done this.

Is this true, what is she risking?

Are their braces out there for ACL tears?
