Ryan5_MNif you dont have an ACL you cant tear it. just get it removed and your problems are solved.
kittywampusBest thing you can do is strengthen your legs to take pressure off the joint and support it. The weaker your leg muscles are, the harder your connective tissue (ie. ligaments) has to work. I was having some knee issues last season (patellofemoral pain syndrome), and working on leg strength and endurance has completely mitigated the issue.
This leg circuit below feels terrible and sometimes make me wanna puke, but I swear it makes a huge difference in leg strength. Endurance too, after doing lots of these I've found that I'm not getting sore/distracted by fatigue at all, even on consecutive ski days. All you need is a pair of shoes and a light warm-up. With a 1-mile jog to warm up and a slow walk to cool down, the whole thing takes 30 minutes or less:
