Researchers take a step towards less invasive ACL injury therapy

Anyone who follows sport will know what the dreaded phase "ACL tear" means. When an athlete "does their ACL" it often means at least a year on the sidelines, or may even end an athlete's sporting career.
But now Associate Professor Stephanie Filby, with the help of Dr Jane Rooney, is researching the benefits of a less invasive way of potentially treating ACL injuries. Her focus is a therapy called the "Cross Bracing Protocol" which was originally developed by the late Dr Mervyn Cross and his son Dr Tom Cross based in Sydney.
