Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears are increasingly common in today’s young athlete, leading to a long course of rehabilitation, hours lost from sports and academic participation and long-term impacts on knee joint health. The increased rate of ACL tears over the past two decades can be attributed to the number of children involved in sports and increased intensity of athletic training. The pediatric population presents with a different pathophysiology that impacts surgical intervention and readiness for return to play. This one-day course will look at a young athlete’s progression through the assessment and treatment of an ACL tear. Topics include immediate on-the-field assessment and treatment by an athletic trainer; an in-depth look at ACL injuries and surgical interventions, including a Q&A with a panel of pediatric sports medicine physicians; sports psychology; physical therapy; return-to-sport testing; and returning the athlete to the field with an athletic trainer.
