To our therapists:

Please be careful with too much flexion of the knee when there is significant swelling still present. These protocols are guides, and are used to assist the therapist in setting rehabilitation goals.


ACL Reconstruction

Allograft or Autograft. This protocol is basic guidelines for ACL rehabilitation. If an autograft is used, then some care on the anterior knee is needed.


PCL Reconstruction

This protocol is basic guidelines for PCL rehabilitation.


MCL Protocol

Non operative rehab. For MCL sprains, with the use of a brace for protection, be sure patient wears brace at night as well.


Arthroscopy / Menisectomy /Chondroplasty

Simple arthroscopy, or soft tissue debridements. Plica band removal, ligamentum mucosum debridement or scar tissue debridement


Lateral Release

If any other procedures are done in the knee along with a lateral release, please use this protocol. Take special note of the status of the articular cartilage on the patella and be cautious with knee flexion if there is significant swelling. Lateral releases can have a lateral bulge (swelling) that is typical for the first few weeks or so.


Patellar Realignment: Proximal

For VMO advancement/repair or proximal patellar realignment


Patellar Realignment: Distal
