Return to Running Following ACL Reconstruction


Running is a major milestone to achieve for patients following ACL surgery - yet there's still no perfect answer as to "when".


Historically, the advice was to start a running program after 3 months post-op.


However, what we're discovering is that time-alone is not a great indicator; but rather showing that your prepared to run is - and will more likely keep the person running consistently after they've started.


These are my key criteria to start a running program.




Like everything, there's plenty more return to running goals that could be used - do you have any criteria that you set?
