What does this lab report indicate?
I have an partial ACL tear. Iattached is my diagnostic report. I would like to knwo what should i do next ? One doctor suggested rest for 3 month. I would also like to know what kind of exercise inshould do, what diest etc . What kind of movements i should avoid what caution should i take.
Absolute rest is needed.
Thanks for posting your query.
You have a big knee joint effusion with partial ligament tear. The ligament tear can heal with rest. The joint effusion may need to be drained by your orthopedician if there is a visible knee swelling.
Right now you need to use a knee brace and provide complete rest to your knee. Avoid weight bearing on the knee. Avoid driving or even walking for at least 6 weeks.
Right now you cam do only passive non weight bearing exercises to maintain a good blood circulation in the area under the guidance of a physiotherapist.
Taking a calcium and protein rich diet will help.
Compress your knee. Use an elastic bandage, straps, or sleeves on your knee to control swelling.
*Elevate your knee on a pillow when you're sitting or lying down.
*Wear a knee brace to stabilize the knee and protect it from further injury.
*Take anti-inflammatory painkillers. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), like Motrin to reduce pain and swelling.
Surgical repair may be needed if it does not heal with rest.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.

I dont have any visible swelling and no major pain also. I am taking rest by reducing walking and driving. There are medicins which my docotr gave which are suppliments and anti inflamatroy. The injury happened 3 weeks back when i was playing football. I do some oush ups and stretchs in morning as if i avoid that i will fell too bored :)
You can do push ups.
Thanks for writing again.
If there is not too much of pain then you can continue with push ups and stretches. Do reduce any exercises that cause any sudden pain in the knee.
Hope my answer is helpful.
