Physical Therapy for a Torn ACL

July 23, 2018

 

How to know your ACL is torn

 

If you have torn your ACL, our physical therapy in Ronkonkoma at United Rehab Physical Therapy will give you the best treatment to properly recover. If you are unsure if you tore your ACL, you should seek immediate help. Prolonging medical treatment for a torn ACL could result in permanent damage to the knee.

 

Immediately following the ACL tear, you will experience a “pop sound.” Within the first few hours of the injury, you’ll start to see inflammation around the knee. Along with the increased swelling, you’ll also feel pain and discomfort in the damaged area. As the injury continues to progress, there will be a loss in mobility, stability, and flexibility in the area.

 

 

Physical Therapy for ACL Tears

 

  • Treatment after surgery - at our physical therapy in Ronkonkoma, we create a personalized plan for post-surgery treatment to help regain mobility and ease discomfort.

 

  • Icing and bracing - we use ice and bracing treatments to help limit knee movement and to control swelling of the injured area.

 

  • Electrical stimulation - electrical stimulation can be used to restore muscle strength. This type of treatment can reduce pain and inflammation, as well as increase blood flow in a damaged area.

 

  • Stretching - different stretching techniques will be used in order to regain mobility in the injured area.

 

  • Strengthening exercises - after experiencing an ACL tear, your knee will have to be retrained in order to build back any strength lost from the recovery process. At United Rehab Physical Therapy, we can build you back up to where you need to be.

 

  • Balance exercises - trying to get back on your feet post-ACL tear can certainly be stressful, especially if you’re looking to avoid getting hurt again. Our physical therapy in Ronkonkoma will assure that you get the best treatment, and we will make sure you’re comfortable with the recovery.
