We Bridge the ACL Gap

ACL Rehab Redefined
the acl solution
You might be wanting to get back on the soccer field. Or maybe ski season next year. Did you know only 55% of athletes return back to their same level of sport after an ACL injury? Many give it up due to poor rehab, pain, weakness, or out of fear. We don’t stop till you are 100%. Coming back better than you were before the injury.

How we do this

The ACL Athlete 4R Roadmap

You should know exactly where you are and where you’re heading. Our process has been tried and tested by hundreds of ACLers just like you. Based on science, principles, research, data and criteria. No B.S. We are the GPS on your ACL Journey.

Restore

This phase is immediately post-ACL injury or surgery. The acute trauma is the main limiter here and is slowing the athlete down. The goal of this phase is to provide a safe healing environment, protect the knee joint, and focus on full restoration and capacity of the knee after an ACL injury or surgery. Aiming to restore and lay the initial foundation for this process.

Rebuild

This phase is focused on rebuilding a solid athletic foundation. We aim to improve the knee's tolerance to load and load foundational movement patterns. In order to run, jump, or cut later in this phase, we need certain prerequisites including a strong base of range of motion, muscle size, strength, and running mechanics. We're also aiming to make sure the knee is quiet as loads build. As we continue through Rebuild, you're progressed and exposed to our return to running framework, plyometrics, deceleration/acceleration, and change of direction. Specific to where your needs are and your goals.

Return

The athlete has worked hard on the restoring and rebuilding phases, and has passed specific criteria to get back to sport-specific phases. The goal of this phase is focused on load and exposure through our 3-part return to performance framework paired with the control to chaos continuum, which often gets missed.

Resilience

The athlete is back to sport/activity, but the work is not done. The goal of this phase is focused on creating the most resilient and robust athlete. Filling in any gaps and making sure that we optimize performance. Coming back better than they were before their injury - feeling mentally and physically confident.

Our 3-Step Process

1. Test
2. Plan
3. Support
Why it works:

Our programming and coaching is rooted in science, backed by research and driven by data. We take an individualized approach to ACL rehab.

Why? Because each person is different. No two ACL injuries are the same. No two surgeries are the same. No two recoveries are the same.

That’s why a generic protocol won’t cut it. You need something built specific for you based on testing to meet you exactly where you are and where you need to go. We take the guesswork out of this process and support you every step of the way.

Mindset Training

ACL Athlete Testimonials

Meet Stella

My Daughter, Stella – 13 years old, tore her ACL and had it reconstructed in June 2021.
We started our rehab with a typical “Doc in the Box PT”. BAD MOVE. It was assembly line with generic exercises and they were more worried about what insurance coverage I had than my daughters health and condition. Exact opposite experience with Ravi and The ACL Athlete. Having torn my ACL twice, I know the importance of rehab and your PT is vital to a full recovery. Here are my keys to a good experience and The ACL Athlete checked all the boxes:
1. Physical: Individual assessment of injury, knowledge of specific injury, technique in exercises,
progressing as the patient is ready – not by a calendar, consistency.
2. Communication: Communication with your PT is key when juggling a family, jobs, sports and
kids during rehab. Ravi is also very good at communicating with our teenager which can be challenging at times.
3. Technology: Ravi implements a custom training app that helps keep you on track. He is able to see when and how you do your exercises and tailors the program week to week to match your progress. This was very helpful in keeping Stella on track as well as making it a little more fun. This also allowed me to check on her progress from my phone. Stella is also able to ask Ravi questions from the app to make sure she is doing things correctly. Stella is in her 6th month with Ravi and has made huge progress. He has taught her the proper way to train, and we plan to continue with her training into strength and conditioning even after her full recovery.


5 Stars for Ravi and The ACL Athlete. Highly recommend.

Meet Kayla

This was my third ACL reconstruction. A lot of times you’ll go into a clinic, you’ll do the same exercises, straight leg raises for twelve weeks, 18 weeks more. You’ll do the same plan two or three times a week. You’ll run out of visits before you’re able to start running, and then you’ll start having to pay out of pocket most likely.
This is a major surgery and it’s a major recovery. It’s going to take at least at least six months, most likely nine to twelve, to just feel fully recovered. So investing in yourself is very important – making sure that you invest in the right person and you’re not wasting your time. That’s a long time. Something that stuck out to me remarkably throughout my time working with Ravi and The ACL Athlete is he does a great job of just building your confidence level.

I would fully recommend looking into Ravi and The ACL Athlete and it’s a good way to invest in yourself for just making sure that you can achieve your goals and get back to what you want to do. I would recommend it to anyone going through an ACL injury. This is the place to go.

I’m back to sports. I am not only playing my sports, but I am not thinking about my knee during them. I feel confident and safe during spontaneous movement and demands on my knee. But not only am I back to sports, I have now gained the ability to walk into a gym and do things that I know will support me and my knee and my sports for the rest of my life.

These are things that I could not do before, and I feel so confident physically and mentally. I feel so incredibly strong, and I can’t thank The ACL Athlete enough for that. Mentally, I have less stress, less anxiety and I can do my job, get outside, ski. I used to have a little voice in the back of my head, that something was going to happen and that voice has gone quiet.

Thank you to The ACL Athlete for getting me through the hardest 5 years of my life. I have had an incredible transformation, both physically and mentally.

FAQ

Insurance Vs. Self-Pay

The ACL Athlete is an Out-of-Network Provider. That means we are not in network with any insurance. We don’t want insurance driving how we provide your care or the way your sessions are run.

Insurance – Maybe you have solid out-of-network benefits or you just want to submit to your deductible. We provide you with superbills and information, so you can submit to your insurance if you want.

Self-Pay – Most of our clients are self-pay and choose not to use insurance. This might be because they are out-of-network, don’t have insurance, or just want to pay out of pocket than be restricted by insurance. We offer both individual sessions and package rates. We take cash, credit, HSA, FSA, bitcoin (jk). No locked in contracts. Freedom to use your sessions as you wish.

Each session is 60 minutes – this includes any testing, treatment, and coaching

This varies based on each ACLers having different needs for coaching, support, and programming. Our free consultation call helps us find out what that specifically looks like for you so we can make sure you’re getting the most out of your investment.

We have had many of our ACLers use their FSAs and HSAs in the past. Check with your FSA/HSA for more information.

We have a lot of athletes who use our coaching alongside their in-person PT. We make sure we’re on the same page and work to make sure there are no gaps in your care – leaving no stone left unturned since time is important. We’re happy to connect with your PT, surgeon, athletic trainer, coach or anyone else involved in your process to make sure we’re all on the same page. Your ACL team is important.

While we love the mid to late stages, the earlier the better. Whether you’re in prehab, immediately post-op, months, or years out, we’ve found that the earlier in the ACL process we start working with athletes, the better the outcomes. This allows us to build the proper foundations for the rest of the process, rather than backing up for things that might have been missed (examples: lacking extension, limping gait, quad strength, pain with running, etc.)

Here at The ACL Athlete, we believe every human is an athlete. We see “athlete” as a spectrum and it is relative to each person – it’s all based on the demands of what you’re trying to get back to and that can look different for each person and athlete – whether you’re a rec soccer player, weekend skier, medical professional lifting patients, BJJ competitor, casual hiker, or a pro football player. If you have goals and want to use your body for an activity, sport, or life, then you’re an athlete.
