Getting You Back in the Game
The job of the sports medicine specialist is to not only fix your ACL but to get you back in the game as quickly and safely as possible. This unique ACL rehab program was created by Dr. John Xerogeanes, Chief of Sports Medicine at the Emory Orthopedic & Spine Center, along with physical therapists Mike Newsome and Dan Kraushaar, to guide an injured athlete through each of the phases of rehabilitation after an ACL injury. While our attempt is to make each of the steps self-explanatory, it is very helpful, if not vital, to have a physical therapist or certified athletic trainer with whom to work.
After an ACL injury it is very important to start exercising as soon as possible.
From day of surgery to 3 months post surgery
This is an imperative part of your surgical recovery and important to focus on meeting post operative goals.
Return to Play
These exercises will guide you from 3 to 6 months post surgery. It is vital to faithfully adhere to the following program to avoid re-injury to the ACL reconstruction.
