At Ballarat Sports Medicine, we have strong systems in place to support your return to sport after ACL reconstruction. Patients who have had an ACL reconstruction receive Physiotherapy, strengthening and a progressive return to sport plan. Periodic advanced progress testing with our Ballarat OSM & Ballarat Sports Medicine ACL return to sport testing protocol occurs at 3, 6, 9, 12 and if needed 15 months post operatively with our physiotherapist and orthopaedic surgeon. They check that patients are making good progress and to help keep on track for optimal results with performance and to reduce the risk of re injury.

If patients are receiving physiotherapy outside Ballarat Sports Medicine test results and recommendations going forward in rehabilitation are passed on to the treating team. These are some interesting finding from La Trobe University regarding return to pivoting sports after ACL reconstruction.
