To guide you through the recovery process and empower you with the tools necessary to make a confident comeback from ACL injury.
In 2019, Dr. Martino was inspired to create the Roadmap to Recovery after working with several athletes recovering from ACL injury. He saw the pitfalls of a rehab process dictated by insurance companies, medical doctors, and business owners that left many athletes under-prepared to return to sport and at high risk of re-injury.
Our Roadmap to Recovery addresses the inherent problems associated with this out-dated rehab model that assumes that every athlete's recovery process & timeline for recovery is the same. As a result, some athletes progress too quickly while others do not progress quickly enough - leading to slow or inconsistent progress.
So, we designed a program that addresses the individual needs of each athlete.
Our Roadmap to Recovery includes a series of steps that build upon one another - progressing from pre/post-surgical to return-to-sport.
Each step is associated with specific tests & measures that act as checks & balances to ensure that you're ready to progress and that you're always working on the right thing at the right time.
In doing so, we are able to make consistent progress
while optimizing performance and reducing the risk of future re-injury.
ROADMAP TO RECOVERY
10-Steps to a Confident Comeback from ACL Injury
"The recovery process is much like building a 'skyscraper' - we must ALWAYS start with the foundation. With a solid base, we can add one floor at a time with confidence. For you, this means building a foundation of pain-free movement & adding on qualities such as coordination, balance, strength, power, & endurance.
When it comes to the recovery process, every athlete must complete each floor before moving on to the next. However, it is important to understand that the amount of time it takes to build each floor may vary. For example, it may take you four weeks to restore your knee flexion, while it may take another athlete six weeks. While both of these time frames are acceptable, the process should never be rushed & each floor must be completed before moving on to the next.
In doing so, we ensure that the building is structurally sound & can withstand all the forces of nature. For you, that means that you'll be able to confidently return-to-sport stronger & fitter than you were before.
The 'Roadmap to Recovery' is your BLUEPRINT. It was designed to help athletes like you understand where you are in the recovery process & where you should focus your time & attention."
