Dr. Maeen Abdulwali Mohammed, Dr. Makarand Joshi
This study aims to determine the effect of rehabilitation exercises following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) on range of motion (ROM). The study sample included 9 injured athletes in Aurangabad city, Maharashtra, India, who had undergone ACLR and unable to return to practice their sports activities within first year after primary ACLR. The experimental method was used through applying the pre and post measurements due to its appropriate to investigate the purpose of study.
