Did You Know?
An injury to the anterior cruciate ligament usually happens to athletes in sports where a sudden stop and change in the direction is needed. Repetitive movements like that put a long of strain on the knee and the ACL. Ligaments connect bone and muscle together and the ACL connects the femur to the tibia, stabilizing the knee joint. Any twisting or hyperextension of the knee can cause a tear to the ligament, such as during a jump or a fall. When the injury happens, most people feel a “pop” from the knee, followed by inability to the knee to bear any weight and movement. Pain and swelling develop soon afterwards.
Participants that enrol in standard first aid and CPR classes in Calgary will learn to manage victims of bone injuries as well as sprains and strains. Participants will learn to recognize these injuries and provide effective methods of preventing further harm.
