Rehabilitation following ACL reconstruction surgery has changed significantly over the last 30 years. We have advanced from casting the knee to allowing instantaneous motion and weight bearing in just a short period of time. As per our understanding of rehabilitation concepts continue to change, our attention has shifted towards functional workout and rehabilitation progressions, which is essential to maximize results following ACL reconstruction surgery. We are now seeing professional athletes completely dominate their postoperative rehabilitation. While everyone wants to talk about advanced training and return to sport, it is probably infinitely more significant to reassure that the early phases of rehabilitation go well to avoid problems and allow more advanced drills down the road. If the initial phases of ACL rehab go below par, you will surely be behind for the duration of your rehab.
