    Anterior cruciate ligament rehabilitation

    by Dr Nicki Philips, PhD, Msc, MCSP

    Abstract
    Anterior Wikipedia reference-linkcruciate ligament (ACL) injury is a frequent occurrence in sport, often resulting in ACL reconstruction (1,2,3). Surgeon preferences for choice of techniques and grafts will vary considerably, sometimes creating a challenge for physiotherapists planning rehabilitation programmes for these individuals post-operatively. An increasing media interest in the recovery progress of high performance athletes, such as footballers, has also led to a changed level of expectation amongst the average recreationally active individual undergoing the same procedure. The following text will attempt to address some of these issues by discussing the parameters that could affect rate of progression and choice of exercise.
