    I am six weeks post ACL op now. Doing rehab like twice a week now. Just wanna ask, how long did you guys do the rehab before gaining confidence to play again?

    And is rehab alone enough? Do I need any gym work?

    I started playing, albeit very very VERY lightly after about 3 months. I was doing weekly sessions with the physio, plenty of strengthening work and lots of bike riding (on an exercise bike) on a daily basis before my physio cleared me for light hit ups.

    Really it comes down to what your physio says and how your knee reacts to post surgery rehab and exercise.

    I guess you had daily access to yr physio sessions?
    I wonder if just doing twice a week is enough coz going more often would really kill my pocket!!

    I was doing once a week but having health insurance covers some of the cost of my physio sessions. Twice a week should be fine as long as you're quite dedicated to doing the strengthening work.

    Hey guys, you all know what shot/maneuver you did that cost your ACL to tear right?

    When you all came back to play again after the surgery, did you dare to do that same maneuver again? Any phobia there? I sort of have that phobia if I am well enough to play...... Is it worth the risk?

    Yep, I went for a real ambitious lunging/diving backhand retrieve when I heard my knee go pop. I had the phobia for a good month or two but as I regained confidence in my knee and movements, the fear eventually went to the point it doesn't bother me.

    However I'm more pro-active when it comes to knee pain and swelling. I'm more than happy to miss a session or two in the interests of extending my playing career lol

    I tore my ACL executing the same shot, however it seems that I didn't hop over a bit and I just leaned over too much so my body turned but foot stayed put. After surgery (hamstring graft), I started playing lightly around 6 months, on and off.

    Now, 1 year and 4 months later, I am still a bit hesitant on leaning over that much to get overhead shots, however I have been trying to adapt to hopping a bit so my leg/foot/knee can properly support my body. I don't think I'm as active as I was before I tore my ACL though, still gotta work out and gain more knee strength =P

    Very Bad news from my side.
    While playing badminton couple of days back, I had re injured the same knee and this time tear in medial meniscus. Surgery scheduled for Sunday. Very depressed.

    Since sharing is caring, I'd like to share my thoughts:

    I tore / ruptured my ACL as well. Not only ACL. Both mensicus as well!
    With an overhead jumpsmash! In addition, it wasn't just a jump straight up from the bottom. No, I was jumping from the forehand side to the backhand side to do my probably stupidest overhead jumpsmash!
    It happened during a men's doubles semi-final of a regional tournament. I had too much adrenaline in my blood, eventhough I shouted on the point before. The adrenaline was still very present in my blood. That's a reason why I did such a stupid move.

    This accident is probably a point to remember: You're getting older. Fast and furious shouldn't be your style anymore.

    However, after the immediate visit at the hospital, I had to wait 1 week for an appointment with the knee specialist. After that, I had to wait 2 days only, since I've choosen the new so called DIS-method (DIS in german: dynamische intraligamentäre Stabilisierung)
    This surgery method requires to be happened within 3 weeks after the ACL rupture, that's why they were able to made an express appointment.

    I just wanna note, that this DIS-method is pretty new. As far as I know they invented it 3 years ago. My english isn't that great to explain the details for this surgery method. But the good thing is: I still have my original ACL. Of course it is sutured, but I didn't need any fibers(?) from another body parts or any plastic things.

    More informations? Go to ligamys.com - Most informations are there. But I think the page is still under construction. There are three germany surgery centers stated only. There are way more centers which use this method...! The funny thing is that the inventor is from Switzerland. Shame about this...!

    The new method allows a fast healing process they've told me. I should be able to play badminton 4 months after the surgery.
    The healing process of my knee seems to be fine with physiotherapy. The progress in the first 3 weeks is really really big. Now, almost 4 weeks after the surgery, I'm able to walk without any support for a week now.
    Now it's time to regain the full flexion and extension with physiotherapy. And of course all the muscles I've lost need to be regained as well
    Honestly I could do more exercises at home But I'm confident to play badminton very soon (in 3 or 4 months). Eventhough I ruptured my ACL and damaged both meniscus only 1 month ago!

    All guys out here who also ruptured their ACL: Think positive! Keep going to physiotherapy and do your exercises!

    Well, for me I waited for 3 months before they confirmed with MRI, thanks to the 'quality' NHS GPs in the UK..... It is good to know that there is alternative way to fix the knee. But anyhow, mine is fixed and I can play badminton as usual.

    I tore mine, just by a simple jump in front of the net, not very high (left leg). Fell on the ground, my colleague send me to the hospital A&E. Got an appointment 1 week after that at a sport clinic cum Orth dept to check my bone condition at the same hospital. Sports clinic put me on treatment and physio exercise.
    MRI scan was done 2 weeks later, the following week, went back for follow up at sport clinic and was confirmed with torn ACL.

    Didn't go for re-construction, I opt not to and was placed physio-treatment an exercise for next several weeks. During this period, muscle had wasted away some 7cm compared to the right side just after week but still continue to play at a slower pace but stopped totally after the MRI result came out. In between my physio sessions, I did exercise besides those as requested my physio trainer. After 10 weeks from the start of my injury, I was back to my game. Of course, not at full pace as I had to regain my confident. Trainer dis-charge me from clinic after conducting some assessment. I even did a stretching assessment test in badminton and had been cleared. Some stuff, I thought I would have problem, but I did it without problem.

    That was 3 years back, happened on the last day of Apr. I would say I have no fear, I am lying. I started learning how to use my backhand instead of my overhead smash and drive, etc.... No choice as I don't want to risk further injury to my left leg. I am using a Futuro support with stabiliser. So far so good. Like some one mentioned, I would sometimes give certain type of shots a miss if I think it is too much for me. This,.... so that I can at least enjoy playing for a more prolong period rather than be a one time hero
