Rehabilitation of the knee plays an important role following reconstruction of the anteruor cruciate ligament.

Accelerated rehabilitation programme has changed the concept of immobilization after operation.

Along with the new techniques of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction and with the most rigid graft fixation systems, rehabilitation programmes continue to be modified with less constraints placed on the graft.

In our protocol we advice a four stage programme:

Early range of motion, and close kinetic chain exercises seem to be safe in the early stage of rehabilitation with this protocol. In addition proprioceptive training is very important for the protection of the graft.

A decreased of post operative morbidity, early return to athletic & daily activities and maintenance of long term stability. are the benefits of above recommended protocol.
