Reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is widely accepted as the treatment of choice for individuals with functional instability due to an ACL-deficient knee. It is estimated that anywhere between 60,000 and 75,000 ACL reconstructions are performed annually in the United.
ACL RECONSTRUCTION REHABILITATION PROTOCOL ACCELERATED DAVID R. MACK, M.D. INTRODUCTION Proper rehabilitation after ACL surgery is essential to success. The approach recommended by Dr. Mack follows five stages, and begins within 1-4 days of surgery: x Phase 1: Immediate (weeks 1-2) x Phase 2: Early (weeks 2-6 Introduction This booklet is designed to provide you with advice and guidance on your rehabilitation after reconstruction of your anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). It contains detailed exercises appropriate for the different phases of rehabilitation. The exercises will help to strengthe Rehabilitation after reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament can be divided into several stages, which have different goals and assumptions, and also differ in the methods of work. Immediately after the procedure the early postoperative phase begins, which lasts about 2 weeks - until the sutures are removed There are insufficient data in the literature about the postoperative regime and rehabilitation after combined repair [9, 14]. The aggressive rehabilitation protocol after ACL reconstruction and osteochondral grafts are similar but many doubts persist about the timing of weight-bearing, use of a brace, return to sporting activities, etc InTRODuCTIOn Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructive surgery is a very common operation.1 Patients may choose ACL reconstruction because they believe it may increase their likelihood of returning to compet-itive sport2 and that it may mitigate the risk of post-traumatic knee osteoarthritis.3 However, not al

Recent research, however, shows that 35 % of athletes do not return to this level within 2 years [4, 48]. After 3 or more years, this number even increases to 50 % [5, 31, 32] Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is a well-established treatment for functional instability of the knee. Among the associated complications, bone tunnel widening has been reported in recent studies, despite the technique used [1, 7, 14, 23, 32].Although many studies have described this phenomenon, there is no evidence of its potential deleterious effects in terms of recurrent.

Introduction:The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is the most commonly injured ligament in the knee with annual incidence rates of ruptures reported at 68.6 per 100,000. Prior to ACL reconstruction (ACLR), preoperative rehabilitation, commonly termed prehabilitation (PreHab), has been suggested to physically and mentally prepare patients. Interestingly, the timing of ACL reconstruction and autograft choice can also influence rehabilitation strat-egy. Early ACL reconstruction has been linked with delay in quadriceps recovery. Specifically, 80% of patients treated with delayed ACL reconstruction (mean 40 days) reached a 65% quadriceps strength at two months versu Kate E. Webster PhD, Julian A.

Return to any sporting activities after ACL reconstruction occurs in 80% of cases and return to the same level of activity is experienced by 65% of patients. 41 Makhni et al., 22 in a recent meta-analysis, reported a 67% return to sports, 13% knee instability, and a median score of 82.1 in the Lysholm Knee Scoring System after infection. Introduction In the majority of cases, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries require specialist surgical and physiotherapeutic treatment. The fact that the patient regains a full range of flexion and extension in the knee joint as well as the reduction or elimination of pain is a significant determinant of successful physiotherapy
