Rehabilitation of an ACL deficient knee starts with prehabilitation! Physiotherapy prior to undergoing ACL reconstructive surgery has been shown to be effective in improving strength and balance and influences the chances of successful rehabilitation post surgery. As our understanding grows and our techniques of rehabilitation improves, more and more athletes are even performing at a high level without the need for reconstruction.
Rehabilitation following ACL reconstruction surgery is a process that starts immediately after surgery when your knee is painful, swollen, and limited in motion, strength and control and leads you till return to your chosen sport or activity.
At every stage of the rehabilitation, our 4D lab allows us to take measurements of range of motion, strength, neuromuscular control, proprioception and balance, so that treatment and exercise is directed to areas needing most attention.
