Return to Sports
ACL injuries are some of the most common sports-related injuries that our Riverside South Vitality physiotherapists treat. Such complex injuries always require a Return to Play Assessment, as there is a lot of recovery and rehabilitation that needs to be taken into account. Also referred to as “Movement Assessments,” Return to Play Assessments evaluate the symmetry, power, strength, balance, and readiness of the affected body part in relation to returning to the desired sport.

In the study, it states that 23.5% of participating patients sustained a second ACL injury just 12 months after their ACL reconstruction, while 37.5% sustained a non-contact tear just 24 months after their ACL reconstruction. These statistics demonstrate why Return to Play Assessments are so important – far too many athletes return to the demands of their sports before they are ready!
