Dr. Chris Dougherty answers questions Thursday, after performing an ACL procedure on a cadaver leg at Bentonville’s Arend Arts Center.

ACL injuries

The ACL can be injured if your knee joint is bent backward, twisted, or bent side to side, according to WebMD.com. The chance of injury is higher if more than one of these movements occurs at the same time. ACL injuries often occur in sports. The injury can happen when the foot is firmly planted on the ground and a sudden force hits the knee while the leg is straight or slightly bent.
