Return to play after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction
After anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, 30% of the patients aged 20 years and younger experience a second injury. Studies imply, that with the right rehabilitation and testing many of these injuries can be prevented. Return to play should not be allowed until nine months after surgery at the earliest and should be based on relevant testing of strength, function and mental readiness.
