Knee Rehabilitation

Summary

Concepts to understand

  • What is so unique about the healing (or lack thereof) of articular cartilage? How is articular cartilage uniquely created to distribute forces?
  • Open kinetic chain exercises versus closed kinetic chain exercises s/p ACL-­‐reconstruction.... you can’t escape this question. What is safe, what is not?
  • Which surgeries for articular cartilage damage are intended to allow an athlete return to sport, and which are not?

Specific questions

  • What does the evidence suggest is the strengths and weaknesses about using a BPTB autograft? A hamstring autograft? Allograft? (do not lean on your own experience here... what does the literature say?)
  • What will rehab look like the first 6-­‐8 weeks after a femoral microfracture technique s/p ACL-­‐R?
  • What are secondary signs of an ACL tears (think radiologic), and what implications do they have for rehab?
  • What is the concept behind a double-bundle ACL reconstruction, and why is its supposedly superior to a single-bundle ACL reconstruction?
