Tips for Returning to Play After an ACL Tear

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) stabilizes your knee when you walk, run, and jump. Unfortunately, ACL tears are common and may take athletes out of their game for months or even permanently. With proper rehab, you can play again. Here’s how.

The Benefits of Rehabilitation After a Sports Injury

When you injure yourself playing sports, you want to get back in the game as soon as possible. A sports injury, however, can sideline you completely if you don’t heal correctly. That’s why rehabilitation is essential.

If you’ve torn your rotator cuff, you’ve probably tried everything from rest to steroids to ease the pain and restore mobility. However, in some cases, a surgical solution is the best option. If that’s your situation, here’s what to do.
