This program suits people who need a set, structured and intensive rehab program of rehab exercises, stretches and video instruction to help them recover, rehabilitate, and strengthen their knee after surgery. It is most suited for people who have undergone an ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) reconstruction operation, medial or lateral ligament repair operations or general arthroscopic knee surgery operations for injuries such as meniscal tears and repairs.
WHAT'S INVOLVED IN THE PROGRAM?
Recovering from a ACL reconstruction or any knee surgery operation is not a breeze - It's far from it. And it requires a strict, intensive and regimented rehab regime for ultimate success, and then a maintenance program to follow. This rehabilitation program has been designed by Tim Keeley - Principal Physiotherapist of Physio Fitness.
In this 24 week program you will be shown all the exercises and mobility work that is needed each week, with detailed instructions, videos of the exercises and weekly videos of patients just like you, who are going through the same stage each week. The videos help you keep motivated and on track through your knee rehabilitation journey, as well as giving you great tips and inspiration during each stage.
Tim personally suffered an ACL rupture and a meniscal tear to his knee in a skiing accident in 2009, and therefore has had first hand experience in the injury, operation and the rehabilitation all the way through to full recovery.
He knows what is needed in a post-operative knee surgery program, the exact exercise regime, how long it takes, the effort required and the determination needed to get through each week.
