The Motus Health and Performance way

We take the time to explain the vital steps to achieve physiotherapy milestones, and we are in the game to get you back better than before. ACL rehab is one of our specialities, you’re in safe hands.
acute Injury Management
Surgical vs Non-Surgical Management
Our approach involves team decision-making with your orthopaedic specialist and other relevant healthcare specialists, considering:
- The degree of your injury and the level of instability of your knee
- Associated injuries to your meniscus and/or other ligaments such as the MCL, PCL or LCL
- Your individual goals and the demands of your chosen sport and activity
We work specifically with you between the injury and surgery to achieve the following ACL Prehab goals:
Recovery from the knee trauma:
- Eliminate knee swelling
- Restore full knee extension
- Achieve a comfortable, symmetrical gait / walking pattern
Prepare for knee surgery:
- Prevent the extent of muscle inhibition
- Avoid poorly learned movement habits
- Familiarisation with the post-operative exercises
Post operative protocol
Our physiotherapists, exercise physiologists, and finally strength and conditioning coaches, follow our evidence based and surgeon approved ACL rehab protocol. Progression between the phases is decided upon by passing physical criteria and not just time passed since surgery.
- Recovery from Surgery
- Load Introduction
- Plyometric continuum & Return to Running
- Sport Specific Integration
- Return to Sport
- Prevention of re-injury
Return to sport
We prescribe your progressive individualised program to return you to pre-injury function and beyond. Our testing procedure ensures timely graduation between each phase of knee recovery, to the important milestones of walking un-aided, running, team training, return to contact and ultimately, return to competitive play.
Our fully equipped rehabilitation gym and sports-field access allows us to run one-on-one assessment and treatment options, as well as our group rehab sessions in an interactive, supportive and sustainable environment. Your ACL rehab will be handled at every stage by top specialists and equipment, you’re in safe hands.
