Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is an important structure in providing stability to the knee joint. It plays major role in preventing excessive anterior tibial translation in various degrees of flexion. The ACL also prevents hyperextension of knee and limits excessive tibial rotation.
Physiotherapy is really important in ACL rehabilitation either post-operatively or without surgery. Physiotherapy helps the patient to regain his normal functional ability to the maximum possible by eradicating pain & swelling, improving joint flexibility & ROM (Range Of Motion), improving muscular strength, improving joint stability and achieving normal functional status.
Pre operative physiotherapy help in good ACL rehabilitation wherein our objective is to reduce the pain & swelling. To maintain and improve maximum ROM possible and to adequate strengthening and improve neuromuscular control.
