Managing your ACL Injury: Speed Up Recovery to Peak Performance

Description
A complete tear of the ACL in the knee has the potential to end one’s participation in sports. This is why proper rehabilitation after ACL injury or surgery is essential to minimize the risk of re-injury as you return to sport.

This talk brings together three sports therapists to share everything you need to know about getting back to peak performance after an ACL injury.

What to Expect:
  • A 1.5 hour talk covering
    • what an ACL tear is and why it’s so common
    • improving surgery outcomes through pre-operative physiotherapy
    • what to expect post-surgery
    • how to achieve rehabilitation goals faster
    • returning to sport without ACL surgery (non-operative management)
  • A Q&A session to have all your questions on ACL injury management, answered
  • A wellness bazaar - explore different organisations and practitioners from the health and wellness industry
