Basement Wall stabilization..?

I would love some input from anyone here who has had to repair damage on a load-bearing basement wall... Mine has developed a long horizontal crack in it and I fear that it is only a matter of time before that wall become too unstable to support the weight of the house above it.

I have done my homework and it looks like I probably have 2 options in order to accomplish this, Fortess Stabilization from AquaGuard or a Wall Anchor System.

Thanks in advance!
