Heel Raises For Knee Rehab

One of my favorite exercises to incorporate early in the ACL rehab process are standing heel raises. Not only do you of course get work on the calf, but more importantly you work on: โœ… Terminal knee extension โœ… Glute and quad activation โœ… Progression into full weight bearing on that affected leg โœ… Working on active knee extension ROM . If youโ€™re in the first few weeks of an isolated ACL repair and cleared for full weight bearing, start utilizing heel raises in your program. As ALWAYS, adhere to your surgeons and physical therapists recommendations for your rehab exercises!!
