ACL Rehabilitation Programme

A comprehensive series of short courses exploring ACL rehabilitation after surgery

Introduction

ACL injuries are unfortunately common in many sports. The consequences following the injury are devastating and can be career-ending for many athletes. By planning a thorough rehabilitation program, physiotherapists have a major role to play in a successful outcome and preventing future complications.
