The ACL Handbook: Knee Biology, Mechanics, and Treatment

The ACL Handbook By Martha Murray

ACL injuries affect the lives of hundreds of thousands of people each year. Treatment is far from perfect, and physicians and patients face challenges such as high failure rates in adolescent athletes and the inability to slow the accelerated progression of arthritis after an ACL rupture, for example. The ACL Handbook takes a complete view of ACL injuries and treatments, discussing:

  • Normal ACL and knee mechanics
  • The body's response to ACL injury
  • Development of new treatment methods
