Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Injuries
Other treatment for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries includes physical rehabilitation (rehab) to:
- Restore function and stability in the knee.
- Strengthen muscles around the knee.
- Protect the ACL and your knee joint from further injury.
- Allow you to return to most activities that you did before the injury. If rehab is done without surgery, the knee might not be stable during some movements.
You may choose to treat an ACL injury with rehab alone. If you have surgery, rehab will also be part of your treatment.
