Are you recovering from an ACL injury? Are you looking for effective rehabilitation with lasting results? Our sports physiotherapists will help you regain strength and mobility, pain-free!

Your ACL Rehab Solution

ACL injuries are among the most challenging setbacks for athletes, often resulting in significant pain and impaired mobility. Common in sports like football, soccer, tennis, and gymnastics, these injuries occur due to the intense demands of sudden stops and directional changes, increasing the risk of severe knee damage.

If you’ve recently suffered an ACL tear, understanding your treatment options is crucial. Without the right rehabilitation, there’s a significant risk of re-injury or even long-term knee instability, which could permanently impact your athletic performance and daily activities.

ACL injuries not only limit your ability to move and perform but can also lead to frustration due to slow recovery times. You may be facing the prospect of a lengthy recovery and the threat of ongoing knee issues.

When Should I Start ACL Rehabilitation?

It’s crucial to consult with a sports physiotherapist as soon as you can after an ACL injury. Based on the severity of the injury, your sports physiotherapist might begin rehabilitation exercises right away or could recommend further consultation with a sports doctor or orthopedic surgeon for additional diagnostics, like an MRI.

How Long Does ACL Rehabilitation Take?

The duration of ACL rehabilitation varies widely depending on several factors specific to each individual. These include:

  • Severity of the Injury: More severe injuries may require longer rehabilitation.
  • Age of the Patient: Younger patients often recover quicker due to higher regenerative capabilities.
  • Activity Level: Active individuals may experience different recovery timelines based on their pre-injury activity levels.
  • Physical Condition: Overall health and fitness can influence how quickly someone recovers.
  • Desired Outcomes: Goals such as returning to competitive sports can extend the rehabilitation process to ensure full functionality.


Typically, patients start to notice a significant decrease in pain and swelling within the first few weeks of rehabilitation. Returning to sports after an ACL injury usually takes about 9-12 months, although some may return sooner, within 6-9 months, depending on their recovery progress and the specifics of their rehabilitation program.
