Quick question.
How long will an acl injury effect me?
If torn 3 years ago.

Doctor

A:   Hello
Thank you for posting your query on ATD.

I have gone through your query and understand your concern. You are having ACL tear. It is likely to have some effect throughout the life but it is likely to compensation by quadriceps and likely to be having least effect now as it has already 3 years past.Hope your query get answered.

Wishing you a good health.
Take care
