ACL Rehabilitation Phase Chart

Want a clear picture of which exercises to do in each MOON Knee ACL rehabilitation phase? The chart here shows you. You can use the up and down arrows to the right of each column label to sort the exercises by column. On touch screen devices, touching the column name sorts by that column. Exercises in ACLR Rehabilitation Phases 4-5 and in return-to-sport programs vary too widely to be included here: typically, they are customized based on your body, injuries, sport and position.
