RUNNING AFTER ACL SURGERY- HOW TO GET BACK TO IT?
ACL reconstruction surgery is a knee surgery typically conducted to replace or cut out a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in your knee.
ACL injuries usually occur while playing sports such as soccer, basketball, skiing, surfing, rugby and football. They usually occur in sports where rapid change of movements and frequent stopping takes place.
Physical rehabilitation after ACL surgery is crucial to strengthen the knee and restore mobility.
If you are playing a sport which requires sudden change of direction, pivoting movements and frequent starting and stopping, you are prone to an ACL tear.
Besides knee protection, the medical-grade compression will enhance your performance and improve your muscle recovery.
We recommend using an advanced orthosis SecuTec Genu for post-op care after ACL reconstruction surgery. The hard frame of the orthosis provides additional stability and restricts the range of motion for the knee for rehabilitating the knee after ACL surgery.
