CEU Course Description

ACL injury is prevalent among young athletes. Surgery is usually recommended to repair a tear, which will result in a long, difficult recovery. Surgical considerations must be made to avoid damage to the growth plates to avoid deformity. Physical Therapy is necessary to help the patient regain strength, stability, speed, agility, and to successfully return to a prior level of activity including sports. This course will discuss the types of ACL injury, the infrastructure of the ligaments around the knee, and the rehabilitation required to return the patient to full function. 

CEU Course Objectives

  1. Identify the types of injury to the ACL and discuss treatment options.
  2. Discuss the considerations for youth who opt for surgical reconstruction.
  3. Review tools to help diagnose ACL injury, and to gauge the patient’s extent of injury and recovery.
  4. Determine the rehabilitation process and exercises to include in the plan of care at each stage.
