Quad sets, straight-leg raises, and heel slides are common exercises used after an ACL injury. As symptoms decrease and you
are able to bear weight, side-lying leg lifts, glute sets, bridges, mini-squats, heel raises, and prone hamstring curls might be
added. About two weeks after surgery, you will be able to start putting some weight on your knee. Your doctor will probably fit
you for a knee brace to wear for a few weeks. You will also begin physical therapy between two and four weeks after surgery.
