Although different surgeons and therapists will have slightly different protocols, the goal for all forms of post-operative ACL rehabilitation is the same: to return the patient to a normal and complete level of function in as short a time possible without compromising the integrity of the surgically reconstructed knee. In order to achieve this goal, therapy is typically broken down into stages (or phases) of activity, with goals for each stage...it takes around 6 months for complete recovery... Kindly consult nearest orthopedic surgeon they will do the needful.
