When we think of Australia’s exercise recommendations of at least 2.5 hours of moderate exercise per week alongside two strength training sessions, many of us will immediately link this to helping maintain our physical and cardiovascular health, managing our weight, and preventing disease or conditions like diabetes.
After sustaining an injury during sports, the first thing on many players' agenda isn’t just recovering from that injury, but how to do so as fast as possible. While injuries sustained during sports can vary greatly in their location, severity, and how they occurred, there are five things that anyone can do to help optimise their recovery so they can get back on the sports field as fast as possible regardless of their circumstances.
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are common in Australia. In fact, Australia has historically held the highest rate of ACL injury in the world. Despite a lot of media attention, ACL injuries are still poorly understood by sportsmen and women as well as everyday Australians who can also suffer an ACL injury from undertaking social and leisure activities.
We believe that knowledge is power, so in this article our experienced physiotherapists will shed light on all aspects of ACL injuries. We’ll also look at common recommendations for how best to reduce the likelihood of suffering an ACL injury.
