Pilates Exercises After An ACL Injury

The ACL is one of the major ligaments that connect the thighbone to the shinbone. Activities that require sudden changes of direction or speed, landing awkwardly from a jump, and collisions can increase the risk of injury. 

If you have suffered an ACL tear or sprain, check out the Programming & Sequencing chapter of the Pilates Encyclopedia. You’ll find a list of exercises designed to improve the function of the knee after an ACL injury. Of course, always check with your doctor before returning to an exercise program.

Here are a few to get you started:

 

Mat
  • Single Leg Stretch with thera band: check lower extremity alignment
  • Wall Squats with ball between knees
  • End range knee extension w/ towel or foam roller under knee

 

Reformer
  • Sleeper
  • Feet in Straps: Single Leg Stretch with opposite strap

 

Trapeze Table

 

Chair
  • Standing Leg Pump from front or side
  • Side Sit Leg Pump
