ACL – Anterior Cruciate Ligament
Physiotherapy plays a crucial role in the treatment and rehabilitation of an ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) injury. While physiotherapy cannot replace the need for surgical intervention in many cases, it is an integral part of both pre-surgery and post-surgery care.
From reducing pre-surgery discomfort to guiding the return to activities post-surgery, our experts are dedicated to empowering individuals with the tools and exercises essential for an ACL recovery.
