Abstract

The ACL injury is a new stage in an athlete's career, because after spending months involved with preoperative procedures, surgery, post operative rehabilitation and return to sports, he will still have to spend considerable time to maintain a good condition of joints and muscles to prevent recurrence. Over the last years, new studies have shown different alternatives for treatment phases, especially for the prevention strategies. This event will aim to discuss these scientific evidence in order to allow the participants learn a current and critical view about the evolution of the methods and techniques of intervention and future prospects.
