ACL Injuries, Rehab & Recovery

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is an important structure inside the knee that connects your thigh and shin bone and provides passive stability.

Sports that typically see this type of injury include football, netball, rugby and skiing. The ACL can be injured during a change of direction, cutting or pivoting task and around 70% of these are non-contact.

We are highly experienced in assessing and rehabilitating people with these injuries and helping them from the day of injury back to the field of play.

We use our multidisciplinary team throughout the process to optimise their rehab, and provide testing and feedback throughout their journey to make data driven decisions about return to play.
