ACL Rehabilitation

Layne Physical Therapy, Golden, Colorado

At Layne Physical Therapy in Golden, we know that an injury or chronic issue with your ACL can stop you from playing a sport you love or working at a job you need. That’s why we offer comprehensive ACL rehabilitation to help you restore mobility and function.

In your knee joint, the ACL controls the rotation and forward movement of the tibia under your femur. A sudden twist or stop while running, hard landing from a jump, or direct contact like a tackle can cause an ACL to be stretched or torn. If you’ve damaged your knee in one of these ways, you might recall hearing a loud pop and feeling pain immediately at the time of injury.

What You Need to Know About ACL Rehabilitation

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) has been repaired since the 1970s when it was found that without the ACL the knee was unstable. The sheer forces from the instability result in early degeneration and/or arthritis of the knee as other knee structures fail with additional loads placed upon them.

Our specialists in knee physical therapy will carefully and effectively guide you through a successful ACL rehabilitation, starting at week 1 through the final stage of return to life, sport and work. The following and more will be addressed by our professionals at Layne Physical Therapy in Golden:
