Abstract

Objectives: To investigate views and practices of Australian therapists on rehabilitation and return to sport (RTS) after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR).

Design: Survey-based study.

Setting: Online survey platform.

Participants: Australian Physiotherapists and Accredited Exercise Physiologists (n = 223).

Main outcome measures: 1) perceived benefit, timing and frequency of rehabilitation, 2) timing of RTS and information on RTS evaluation and discharge criteria.

Results: Therapists preferred to consult patients for the first time at 1-4 days (27.8%), = 2 hop tests).

Conclusions: This survey revealed variation in beliefs and practices surrounding rehabilitation and RTS evaluation in Australian therapists. (C) 2018 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
