Background: The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a structure within the knee that prevents anterior translation of the tibia on the femur as well as checks lateral rotation of the tibia and extension of the knee. The ACL is typically injured in noncontact sports by a sudden deceleration prior to a change of direction or landing motion. Female athletes are more than twice as likely to sustain an injury to the ACL. An ACL injury is often accompanied by an injury to the meniscus of the same knee. Purpose: The purpose of this case report is to provide a comprehensive account of the physical therapy treatment provided to a young female athlete after left anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.
