are there any pain pre-cursors to an ACL tear?
 
For those of you who have had an ACL tear and/or have sports medicinal knowledge:

I'm talking about the kind of non-contact tears like in the cases of Rajon Rondo, Derrick Rose, Lou Williams, etc. Where a player plants their foot somewhat normally and the ACL just gives out.

Does it always happen spontaneously or is there ever a sensation in the knee that may warn of an impending tear?

The knee just gives out(pops), i don't think there are any warning signs before the tear
Of course if you don't haven't trained your knee appropriately or warmed up properly you have a higher risk of tearing your acl

That sucks. So unpredictable.

You would think with all that running and cutting from the point guard position, they would have adequately trained their knees as a natural byproduct.

I guess there are no specific exercises to safeguard from an injury like that. Just a freak thing that occurs.

There's no warning. You just feel the pop. Same for MCL, LCL, etc.

Depends people to people but yah for me it was one hell of a pain but I've been through a lot of shit like this anyway went to the doctor and we decided I should just put a brace on it and skip the surgery, I didn't give a fukc about sports anyway.

since there's gonna be sports injury experts reading this thread I'll ask in here:

Lately when I wake up and take my first few steps after waking up I have pain in the middle area of my left foot. What does this mean? makes me think im getting plantar fascitis

They probably have, professional athletes also specifically train their knee ligaments to prevent such injuries but still one weird landing and it's over

I'll wait and let the Phoenix Suns medical staff members answer your question. Some of them are members of this forum.

Strange how one can have a weird landing and just come away with a sprain or knee twist, yet some guys have straight-legged landings with no bends and come away with an ACL tear.

I wish I understood the mechanics of it all. It would seem as if the tear would be a gradual process from such a routine landing causing a devastating result. Hmm, the human body and its mysteries.

Could be the problem, see an expert if the pain worsens

Does the pain disappear after you warmed up or is it persistend?
