ACL rehab

Following ACL reconstruction, to make the swiftest, safest gains, the following programme is recommended.  On occasion this will vary and is only suggested as a broad framework.  Throughout the process the therapists and surgeon may make other suggestions.

Advantages of early mobilisation include the prevention of stiffness and nutrition to the cartilage.  Using the graft stimulates healing but exercises must remain closed chain in order to protect against the sliding displacement of the tibia.  

A knee brace is often not used.
