ACL Surgery rehab... 5th phase injury prevention

Recovering from surgery, restoring strength and neuromuscular control, reintroducing running, agility and landing and finally returning to sport. These are seen as the key phases of ACL injury rehabilitation over the initial 9-12 months. However, following such a significant injury, our rehabilitation continues following our return to sport. 

The 5th phase of ACL rehab includes 'prevention of re-injury'. It is recommended that an injury prevention program that focuses on plyometric, balance and strength exercises is performed more than once a week for at least 6 weeks following return to sport. 

Women are up to 8x more likely to sustain an ACL injury compared to men playing the same sport. Modifiable risk factors such as training desirable movement patterns form the basis of an injury risk reduction program. 

If you are seeking guidance for ACL rehabilitation, our team can help you progress through the various stages of rehab in a 1:1 or class setting. 

Contact us at or for guidance through your ACL rehabilitation or for an injury prevention program.
