ACL Return to Sport Programming
PTU ACL Return to Sport Programming was created in collaboration with Doctors of Physical Therapy at PTU and is currently managed by Dr. KiKi Levesque who is an original creator of the programming. All ACL Return to Sport Programming courses are 6 weeks long and include 3 workouts per week. Your phase of programming is determined by your physical readiness and months passed since your surgery. ACL RTS programming is available to those who are >6 months since surgery and whose surgeon has approved a return to sport transition. If you are not sure, contact PTU for a consult and we can get you placed in the right phase for you! Click the photo to be brough to the purchase page for the app.
