  • Hi Dr. Luks,

    I’m 4 months out after my ACL reconstraction surgery. Wonder if you could be more specific about those returning to sports tests.
    My PT ended after 3 months and there was no test at the end of it.
    I find your articles very informative and often share them with my boot camp team.

    Thank you!

    • You should find a athletic trainer or PT who is well versed in return to sports clearance. Show them the list of tests and they can perform them on you.

  • Hi Dr Luks.

    I was just wanting to know if there was a reference that you could provide for the Norwegian ACL re-injury Study you refer to.

    Kind regards

  • You state, “We have proven techniques to diminish the risk of developing your initial ACL injury.” Are these techniques published somewhere for the public? If so, where?
