Depends: Following an ACL reconstruction post tear, the rehab usually involves three months of regular physical therapy, then some follow up as needed. Our physical therapist then will do a three month sports/functional test to see whether you can be discharged from pt or if you need to continue. Overall, it take a whole year for the graft to mature, so some pt may be needed off and on during that year. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
