Patient-focused information about ACL rehab stages and exercises
The ACL Rehab app is a relatively comprehensive and detailed resource for patients who may need additional guidance regarding their ACL injury. Unfortunately the publisher is not named, but this app appears to come from a relatively reliable medical provider. The home screen includes general information about ACL ruptures and information about surgical treatment and graft options. It is written from the perspective of a surgeon advising a patient. Next, the app describes stages of rehabilitation starting from Prehab, and continuing through various weeks of recovery culminating in “Return to Sport” at 6-9 months. Within in each stage, specific exercises are recommended and described/shown. These can be added to one’s personalized “My Workout” for quick access and review.
For patients who may be looking for physical therapy guidance, this app has appropriate medical information and recommendations.
