Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury is a common and painful injury that occurs approximately 250,000 times annually in the U.S. . Articular cartilage and meniscal injuries are also associated with ACL injuries . ACL injuries can often lead to degenerative osteoarthritis of the articular cartilage . An epidemiology study of athletic injuries by Majewski et al.  determined that out of 19,530 sports injuries, 20% were ACL injuries and 8% were medial collateral ligament (MCL) injuries.
