Sport-specific training is initiated between 8 and 16 weeks postoperatively. The goals of this phase are full return to competition following assessment of ROM, strength, power, and agility. Advanced agility drills and sport specific training are initiated during this phase of rehabilitation. Any deficits in ROM, strength, balance, and proprioception are addressed during this phase as well. Contact activities should be limited until the patient is cleared for competition by the physician.

All patients should progress through the above phases of rehabilitation. Specifics of each phase are modified based upon the surgical procedure performed.
