How to receive best care after ACL repair
The 4D PRO ReAction Trainer was developed by German sports physician, Dr. Homayun Gharavi MD, PhD PhD, who has been rehabbing injured professional and olympic athletes since 1997, bringing them back sooner and stronger than predicted by his surgeon colleagues around the globe.
“The secret is, that there is no secret.”, says Dr. Gharavi. “We have to respect the intelligence of our body’s software over its hardware. Damaged hardware can easily be repaired, yet the software gets injured during the hardware’s healing phase.”
On how to respect both systems during the healing phase after ACL reconstruction of the knee, Gharavi says, that we have to match up the neuromuscular intelligence by creating smart rehab programs, which do not interfere with the graft, yet keep up motion and moving.
“We are not trying to get the athlete back sooner, but rather on a higher movement quality level. Just by listening to the body, we are able to advance our rehab programs to the extend, that allow us to put the crutches away as soon as 12 days post-OP.
