Acl Rehabilitation Program

Phillip DePaola, Physician Assistant with Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, says each surgeon has their own protocol. "Some physicians don't want you to start therapy for a week or two because they want the healing to set in, but we start them in therapy that same day." He also explains his patients do the physical therapy at least two or three times a week.
