How To Avoid ACL Scar Tissue (and Rehab Like a World-Class Athlete) in 3 Steps

Rehabbing from an ACL Injury is a huge topic. This week on "The SportsMedicine Minute", I dive into some of the steps you can take to rehab like some of the world-class athletes that I work with on a regular basis. Here's what I talk about in the video:

1. Avoiding ACL Scar Tissue #ACL #Rehabiliation

During your recovery, one of the things we want to try to minimize is the development of scar tissue that can lead to additional inflammation.

2. Regaining Motion and Mobility #ACLTearRecovery

Getting your range of motion and general mobility back is a key in the early stage of your rehab.

3. Strengthening the Leg #ACLStrengthening

You might want to get the strength in your leg back immediately (who wouldn't), but the truth is that you may have to wait a few weeks for this phase. However, once the time is right, it's time to start re-building the strength in your leg.

4. Building Back to Full Strength #ACLRehab

Once the leg begins to strengthen, we introduce a category of exercises that will help you get back to full strength, and, in some cases, be in better shape than ever.

Enjoy the video!
