  • I recently had an MRI of my knee in which the impression reads ACL tear. However it doesn’t state if it’s partial or complete. In the summary it says multiple ligament out fibers demonstrating discontinuity, while others appear intact. Does this mean it’s not a complete tear? I feel no instability in my knee, and I would like to complete my senior year of cheerleading.

    • that seems to be describing a partial tear… but your examination would be able to determine that even better.
