Return to Sport Program

If you have had an injury to your hip, knee, or ankle and would like to know if it is safe for you to “Return to Sport.” You can call any of our locations to have a physical therapist, physical therapy assistant, or athletic trainer evaluate your readiness for return to play.

Return to play can also involve expanding your return to sport potential with participation in our ACL Bridge Program. The goal of this program is to provide treatment following traditional ACL rehabilitation to bridge the gap between post-operative rehabilitation and return to sport. This program begins 6-9 months post-operative and is typically 6 weeks (12-18 session) program. This program includes high-level strength training, agility performance, and Sportsmetrics jump programming. Please call 616-256-8679 to schedule and find the nearest clinic to you, offering this program.

What to Expect

ACL rehabilitation patients should begin this program 6-9 months post operation, after all appropriate goals have been met or restrictions lifted.

Pre and post test assessments will be performed and will be discussed with the patient.

The physical therapist and patient will determine appropriate program based on equipment, space, and need.

This program can be run through insurance but, if benefits are exhausted client pay rates are available.

Who Would Benefit

Post Op ACL Rehabilitation Patients



Thank you for your help in my recovery. Wade and Marla have certainly helped me with their therapy after the knee surgery and the broken arm. All of you have been extremely kind as you guided me through the various exercises that have re-energized the many muscles that have helped me walk and get close to normal again. Your smiles, encouragements, the family atmosphere has been very helpful throughout the process. It starts with the smile and welcome that Kayla gives each time I walk in the door. Thanks so much to each of you for your caring attitude.
