Rehab

What does the rehab look like?

Rehabilitation is extremely important – it is a cornerstone of treatment with Ligamys. Physiotherapy and consistently administered training decisively contribute to success of the therapy. For Ligamys patients, the specially developed rehabilitation scheme serves as a reference point.

The rehabilitation scheme is based on the latest findings of cruciate ligament research and the principles of training theory.

Please show the rehabilitation brochure to your physiotherapists and point out that this is not a cruciate ligament plasty.

Ligamys Rehabilitation

Mobilisation

Mobilisation is the core element of aftercare after a cruciate ligament rupture. The patients learn to stand up independently and to move with the surgically treated knee.

1

Phase

Strength building

Subsequently, specific exercises are used to build up strength and improve muscular guidance in the knee joint.

2

Phase

Training of proprioception

Proprioception – the deep sensibility of the knee – is trained with exercises on the trampoline or balance board. They stimulate the nerves of the cruciate ligament to bridge the rupture site and resume their original function in the fine control of the muscles in the knee joint.

3

Phase

Rehabilitation phase of six to twelve months

For about four days after the surgery, the knee is held in the extended position by a splint. Afterwards the leg can be moved and bent again, depending on the individual complaints.

The rehabilitation phase takes about six to twelve months. During this time, the knee can be reintroduced to athletic stress. Inner healing takes time, and the healing process is individually different. After you have passed the Back to Sports test, you can return to your normal training routine. The test consists of four exercises that assess the strength and mobility of the knee.
