Description
According to the literature, ACL rehab is struggling in returning the athlete back to play. Meta-analysis studies that reviewed over 5800 cases indicated that less than 50% of the patients returned to their sport. During this webinar we will examine current trends and considerations for improving rehabilitation following ACL surgical repair. Topics to be discussed: *Eccentric loading concepts in remodeling collagen fibers *Improving the three balance systems somatosensory, ocular motor – vestibular, and vision *Knee flexion angles to facilitate hamstring control of anterior shearing forces *Strengthening the posterior lateral hip muscles.
