ACL Rehabilitation Summit: Session 2


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 2, we’ll cover:
• Presentation 1: Leveraging Measurement to Inform Athlete Readiness in ACL Rehab
• Presentation 2: ACL Hot Topics: Knee Extension ROM and Open-Chain Strengthening
• Presentation 3: ACL Rehab: Motor Learning Strategies for Adaptive Neuroplasticity

Be sure to register for Session 1 to hear from experts on testing and training psychological readiness to return to sport and using blood flow restriction in ACL rehab.

How to Prepare

Learning Objectives

1. Determine a progressive list of methods that can be beneficial to monitor during ACL rehab.

2. Apply a progressive loading model using ground reaction force data to analyze athlete competency with force production and attenuation.

3. Analyze how different movements create varied demands on the body that should be considered when increasing functional demands during rehabilitation exercises.

4. Link the benefit of tracking fitness as a standard part of monitoring when establishing readiness for sport participation.

5. Examine the benefits of monitoring nutrition and recovery during the rehabilitation process.

6. Apply the evidence regarding the complications from not achieving full knee extension ROM after ACLR

7. Determine strategies for clinically improving full knee extension ROM.

8. Examine the evidence for and against early open kinetic chain strengthening after ACLR

9. Implement a systematic approach to prescribing open kinetic chain strengthening after ACLR

10. Link the neuroplasticity after ACL injury with sensorimotor compensations.

11. Apply motor learning principles to ACL rehabilitation.

12. Examine patient motor coordination retention and transfer

13. Create augmented therapy approaches including motor learning and cognitive aspects
