Excel Sports and Physical Therapy treats ACL injuries

ACL injuries are becoming more and more common in athletes. If you watch one game of NFL football on television per week during the football season, you’re likely to see at least one player have an ACL issue and have to leave the game or maybe even have their season ended.

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the two ligaments running through your knee that connects your thigh bone and your shin bone. Injuries to this ligament are primarily caused by sudden changes of direction or sudden stops that you make that put extreme stress on the knees.

Stress on the knees can happen when you’re playing receiver in football and must suddenly change the direction of your pass route or when you’re playing basketball and must stop suddenly to return to the defensive side of the court when the ball is stolen from one of your teammates. The result of these moves is that you may end up damaging your ACL and needing surgery.

At Excel Sports and Physical Therapy, our team is ready to help you with your recovery after your ACL surgery. In fact, our team can assist you with ACL injuries by creating a personalized therapy plan for you that may include techniques such as:

  • Agility training drills
  • Core strengthening exercises
  • Functional training techniques

Thanks to techniques like these, the team at Excel Sports and Physical Therapy can come up the perfect plan to help you recover from your ACL injuries. We may even be able to get you back in the game more quickly than you thought was possible.
