Rehab after an ACL surgery is a long and hard process, but the therapist here at the RE are specially equipped to guide you through the process and get back to all activities and sports. Rehab starts with gaining back full range of motion while beginning to strengthen your quad. We utilize a full squat rack, kettlebells, and other strength training equipment to make the gains necessary to successfully get back to sport. We also utilize plyometric and agility drills to gain confidence with these movements prior to returning to play.
Our state-of-the-art facility includes a Biodex machine to objective test strength, force plates to measure symmetry of movement, and other objective measures to make the rehab process as evidenced-based as possible. If you are not testing, you are guessing, and we test to ensure that each athlete is ready to get back to sport.
Research has shown that athletes who complete and pass return to sport testing are less likely to reinjure themselves when they return to sport. Our staff includes sports residency-trained physical therapists who have rehabbed high school, collegiate, and professional athletes so they have the experience to give you the highest level of care possible. Each athlete is taken through an individual assessment and crafted a unique plan to match their sport/activities specific demands.
