Strength is the name of the game when recovering from an ACL surgery. The strength phase is the longest and most important phase of the recovery process and should last into the return to sport phase of rehab. The stronger you can get quads, hamstrings, glutes and core the better the body will be prepared to go into the next phase of rehab. There should be defined criteria meet to move on not just a time based program.


There are many other exercises and variations these are my go-to’s. I prefer to follow the MOON ACL protocol which is a functional based protocol instead of a time based one. Each individual is different and should be treated as an individual.

If you have had or know some one who has had an ACL reconstruction, who better to do the rehab that some one that has gotten NFL players back to their best on the field. Scott Worked 2 seasons in the NFL with the Denver Broncos doing rehab on the players helping them get back to their best.
