RECOVERY FROM PRESERVE ACL SURGERY
After PRESERVE ACL Surgery, you should immediately be able to bear weight with the assistance of a knee brace. In addition, you’ll be able to test the range of motion in your knee to prevent stiffness during and after recovery. Because this surgical option is less invasive than other, more complex forms of ACL restoration, recovery time is generally shorter as long as you follow the same rehabilitation protocol.
During recovery, KneeHab may be prescribed to help with quadriceps contraction, and physical therapy should begin within one week of surgery. The rehabilitation protocol we use for PRESERVE ACL Surgery is identical to the one we use for total ACL reconstructions, including rest, knee extension and exercises, maintenance of a proper range of motion and ultimately, a return to regular daily activities.
