ACL Rehabilitation Summit: Session 1


Join us as we dive deeper into the world of ACL rehabilitation and share evidence-based insights from industry experts. Through lectures, video examples, and interactive Q&A sessions with each speaker, you’ll learn best practices on complex topics to support your clients’ ACL rehabilitation journeys.
Remember to sign up for both sessions if you’re available since each session will cover different topics.

In Session 1, we’ll cover:
• Presentation 1: How to Test and Train Psychological Readiness to Return to Sport
• Presentation 2: A Comprehensive Approach to the Use of BFR in ACL Rehab

Be sure to register for Session 2 to hear from experts on leveraging measurement to inform athlete readiness in ACL rehab, evaluating knee extension ROM and open-chain strengthening, and implementing motor learning strategies.
