What causes anterior cruciate ligament injuries?

An injury to the anterior cruciate ligament can be caused by a range of activities, such as soccer, football or basketball. A sudden deceleration, twisting of the knee in the opposite direction, or a direct blow to the side of the knee can all cause an anterior cruciate ligament sprain or tear.
