We all have protocols and guidelines to help us with our patients in need of ACL rehab. It is easy to get in a rut and easy to lose sight of the end goal. The best thing I can say about this interview is that it got me thinking about the ways I can make changes with the way I treat this patient population. I hope it does the same for you! I am really looking forward to this course and had a great time listening to this episode.
