Re: 3rd degree ACL tear & medial meniscus tear
I agree with Jenny. If your knee is locking either a surgeon or PT may be suggesting some kind of bracing to protect the knee and avoid further problems. Get a consultation with an orthopedic surgeon that is very "sports medicine" oriented. My surgeon works with the local professional hockey team and spring training teams. For things like ACL a doctor who is "performance" oriented is the best.
