Tendon and ligament injuries — sprains, strains, ruptures, and tears — occur frequently. The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons estimates about 2.5 million people suffer from a serious Achilles tendon injury each year, and some 200,000 experience ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) damage in the knee. Sports and overuse are the most common causes of these and other injuries, but they can also happen during everyday activities. When conservative treatments like rest and strength-building exercises don’t work, surgery may become necessary.
