ACL Therapy For Active Adults - The Initial 2 Weeks

Going through ACL Reconstruction surgery is not possible for anyone. The disquiet, pain, swelling and foreignness of having an immobile limb will be quite a departure from the normalcy of a regular routine.

However, with some hard work, patience and commitment, you'll be back once again to your active life style, even more powerful than you were before surgery.

The first month after surgery is difficult - you're largely restricted to a bed except for health purposes, the swelling in your leg and ankle might be large and the pain will ebb and flow because the time continues on.

Make sure to bring your notebook and power cord to your healing region and ensure your wireless web (if appropriate) is working to greatly help pass the time, if you have one.

2. If you have young kids, prepare them for the very fact that you're likely to be immobile for an interval of time and that they cannot rough-house around you while you are recovering.
