ACL Rehabilitation: Quad Sets
Begin your rehabilitation with exercises that develop muscle control. These help you meet basic goals, like driving a car or going back to work. Exercise as often as you're advised. But stop right away if any exercise causes sharp or increasing pain. Icing your knee for 15-20 minutes after exercise can help prevent swelling and soreness.
Sit against a wall with your injured leg out straight.
Tighten your front thigh muscles and press the back of your knee down toward the floor.
Hold for 10 seconds. Release. Repeat 5 times.
