Injury to the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (aka the ACL) is one of the most common knee injuries we see at BaiMed Performance Centre. Usually caused by a non-contact pivoting injury in sports like football, netball, basketball, tennis, and gymnastics, ACL injury can happen easily, with women around six times more likely to experience it than men.

More serious ACL injuries result in surgery, with around 400,000 ACL reconstructions conducted each year globally. Unfortunately, re-injury rates are still very high for people returning to competitive sport

We have strong evidence that shows ACL re-injury can be prevented through a specific exercise program by a qualified practitioner. And adherence to a rehabilitation program gives a massive 82% success rate for athletes returning to sport.

At BaiMed we manage our ACL patients from injury back to the level of performance that they were before injury. Our philosophy is not just “return to play”, but “return to perform”. We monitor you the whole way from Physio table back to sporting field, to ensure you have the best chance of a full recovery.

Have you experienced an ACL injury? What’s next?

  • You need a comprehensive assessment from your Doctor, Orthopaedic surgeon, Physiotherapist, Strength & Conditioning Coach
  • Know your options – you may not need surgery
  • Own your rehab
  • Build strength and confidence in your knee
  • Return to performance as a better athlete

 After ACL Reconstruction 30% of non-elite athletes never return to sport.
