Introduction

Considering the potential for postoperative complications, a small percentage of patients with ACL injuries might be suitable for non-operative management. An evidence-based set of screening tests can help us identify this group. Rehabilitation concepts are similar for both operative and nonoperative treatment of ACL injuries. However non-operative treatment is different with an increased emphasis on neuromuscular training to restore joint stability.
