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.
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.
This protocol is basic guidelines for PCL rehabilitation.
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
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.
