ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) injuries are one of the most common and debilitating knee injuries. Infinity Health Centre's ACL rehab program is designed to provide you with the fastest and best outcomes post- injury.
Maximizing strength, range of motion and flexibility are essential components before having ACL surgery. Post surgical outcomes are vastly improved if your knee has had proper pre-operative rehabilitation. An individualized program will be designed to improve recovery post surgery.
After surgery, rehabilitation should begin as soon as possible. Reducing discomfort and swelling, increasing range of motion, joint mobility, and strength need to be achieved at certain milestones post surgery, or may never be regained. Each stage of recovery and tissue healing will be well monitored over the 6 month period.
In some cases, surgery is not required, and rehabilitation is the best option to recover from an ACL injury. Various treatment options can be implemented like various soft tissue therapies, IMS (Intramuscular Stimulation), neuromuscular re-education, progressive resistive exercises, and modalities as needed – All will aid in improving knee function, tissue healing, and strength without surgery.
Custom sport bracing is often an important part of the rehabilitation process. When applicable, you will be custom fitted with a brace that will help you during all stages of your recovery and return to sport. Bracing helps to speed up recovery time and protects against re-injury.
