Is it OK to do open chain exercises after an ACL reconstruction surgery? A common question asked by a lot of patients.
In the initial stage after surgery certain ACL protocols prohibit open chain exercises. However after the initial stage following surgery, there is no reason why you should not be able to do the open chain exercises. You should be well on your way to doing higher level exercises unless you still have some underlying issues with the joint or are limited by pain. Make sure you have full range of motion and focus on strengthening before you start higher level exercises.
