There is no such thing as a partial ACL tear.
Its either torn or its not. Ligaments are avascular, they don't magically heal without a surgical repair. You can stabalize the ligament with therapy through muscle strengthening but that partial nick wont go away.
That's not true at all. It's not a full tear unless it's in two pieces. Otherwise, it's a partial tear.
