RETURN TO RUNNING AFTER ACL (ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT RECONSTRUCTION)

$15

Aim

The aim with this early ACL program is to share some ideas to exercises you can do in the early phase of your rehabilitation. Talk with your physio about as every surgery is slight different and have different restriction from different surgeons. However, many of the thing are common exercises the the early phase and these exercise are built up as if you can do them painfree you can continue.

At the end of your first 4-6 weeks (depending of your type of surgery) you are expected to have:

  • Pain free or controlled pain,
  • little to no effusion
  • range of motion flexion (0-120°) and full active extension.
  • restore balance
  • minimize loss of muscle strength.
  • active dynamic gait pattern without crutches
  • ability to hold terminal knee extension during single leg.

I hope that it will inspire you and health professionals to optimize recovering from ACL injuries.

You are always welcome to each out to me on social media.

All the best

Description

About

Clinical criteria are important indicators of adequate loading when returning to running. This is typically around 3-4 month post ACL surgery

We suggest that these clinical criteria:

Pain <2 out 10 in oain,

95%knee flexion RoM (side to side difference)

Full extension RoM (0° knee extension)

No effusion/trace of effusion/swelling

We propose the term return-to-running activities to describe the phase of RTR at a slow speed (8–10km/ hour).
